It sounds like you have a bad starting compositor. If your compositor is a black plastic one look next to the spade connectors in the cap and you'll see a little resest hole with a brown stopper in it. If that stopper is black, burnt or leaking oil it is bad. If you have a metal one you can set it on it's base on a flat surface. If it rocks it is bad. If the compositor is good you may have a problem with the windings and either need to replace the motor or have it rebuilt.

if it is a used pump, these have a tendency to have a little rust. just get some pump pliers and rock the shaft gently back and forth. then plug it back in.

most of the time its the start capacitor or a dirty start switch. the start switch can be cleaned with the striker off a match book use CARE not to bend the switch , the switch is in contact when motor is starting and open when running... look for free pool pump motor testing in you area and see if they can test the cap for ya as it requires a special meter to do THE TEST RIGHT ! and you might need a shaft seal when all is done. good luck// jay the pool pump repair guy FLORIDA

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


It could be the pump is bound up but it is more likely the motor is failing. It may be a small part such as the capacitor or the starting switch, but could also be more severe such as the winding itself. You will also want to examine the shaft where it passes thru the pump and motor and look for signs of rust from a pump seal leak.

If you are not familiar with testing these parts your best bet would be a local electric motor repair shop to see if the motor can be repaired or if it would need to be replaced. They should also be able to ensure there is no pump damage.

either debris in pump causing impeller to hang, or you need a start capacitor.

The pump works for a minute with the jets, then sops, then starts


You need to check the door on the skimmer and the water leavel on the pool. If the door is stuck or the leavel is low the pump will **** the skimmer dry and cause the problem your describing. Try these first and good luck.
