Had the repair people take a look at it today. The pump is failing. That’s how these electric motors go out: they fail slowly, gradually losing power until they quit working altogether. In that way, they can mimic a a clog that slowly builds up. Fixing it is less than a new unit, so in a week or so it should be up and running again.

Thanks, everyone, for your input.


           That's what I was thinking after your last post. I think the pump for ours was less than $50 to the door next day from amazon. A total of 20 minutes to change at the time but like i mentioned earlier on ours the new pumps pull more amps and destroy the relays on the board so I modified it with a large HD relay.
