Hopefully you have not fried the motor. To free a stuck motor: try to reach past the strainer to the impeller and turn it. If you can't do that, remove the electric end cover and find a double flat for a wrench where the shaft goes into the motor. Or maybe you can remove the spring thing from the end of the motor and move the shaft with a pair of vise grips or pliers. Don't damage the place where the spring thing mounts. Don't try to move the motor with the plastic fan thing near the pump, you'll just break it, and then you really have problems.
To keep a motor from sticking, thru off season occasionaly spin the pump, just a few seconds will do, don't need water.

SOURCE: SPA Filter on while Spa is Heating

you have one jandy valve ( the suction valve in front of the pump) that is not working right when you press spa mode. have someone watch the valves to see if they move when you press spa mode and heat inside the house. if the one in front of the pump does not move and the switch is in operating mode then that valve is bad and will have to be replaced.

Your best bet is to contact their fantastic support team and they will help you by phone.
Sounds like you may have an obstruction in the line or a problem with an inline component
such as the old-style wave motor (in spas that are about 10 years old or more). Sounds like
the pump is actually trying to work, so would not blame this problem on the pump until other components on that second pump line such as a possible wave valve are checked.

The pump has been louder for a couple of weeks and after I stopped it to clean the spa filter, it won't start. Sounds likes it's seized

I had that happen when the spa was off for 10 days. I took the pump and wet end out, and managed to turn the shaft to free it. It has rusted up in place.
6 months later it started the loud noise and started getting worse - the motor bearing at the wet end was seizing up. I replaced motor and wet end just in time.

Jandy filter and pump with a aqualink. Pump

Once you turn it off their will be a heater override that will keep the pump running for five minutes so the heater can cool down. Be sure that you give it that time.
