Hello. November 2016 I purchased the PL2102 - 1 HP Pool Motor Square Flange 48Y. Installation was simple and the pump has been operating approximately 4 hours a day since with no problems. This past Sunday (03/21/17) I noticed the pump wasn't running. After checking the switch at the timer and the wall switch I realized the breaker was tripped. I reset the breaker and turned on the pump at the timer. The pump started for a second and a large spark and pop came from the back side of the pump where the vents are. I reset and tried again with the same result. I took the cover off the back and noticed no burnt wires and couldn't see anything abnormal through the vents. Could the capaciter have gone bad? How can I tell? ... Am I still under warranty?
My info: Order Number: 714266 Date: 11/25/2016
Any help is appreciated, thank you!
