That does not look good. It is hard to tell if the issue is in the controller (since it is a variable-speed motor) or in the motor itself.
The parts (and replacement motors) for your pump are on this webpage. You may have a difficult time finding the controller only if that is one of the first generations of motors.
I was able to find a used control unit on ebay for $400 and that got things back up and running. I made sure the port the installer left open into the control unit is now sealed so hopefully that will prevent this issue from happening again.
That is great to hear! I'm glad everything is up and running again!
It is possible that replacing the circuit board could fix the issue with your pump. However, it's important to consider the potential risks and complexities involved in opening up the pump and performing the replacement yourself.
If you are not experienced with electrical work and pump repair, it may be best to seek professional help to avoid any further damage or injury. A qualified technician or electrician can properly diagnose the problem and provide the necessary repairs to get your pump up and running safely.
