Forget about your pool this year.

Beach is an option

Hi,Sounds typical of a locked-up pump. That's what the relay/contactor is supposed to do to keep it from burning up. You should shut off all the valves and the power, open it up and you'll probably find a bit of rock, tile chips, or anything else not made to go through the pump. Either that or the bearings froze up due to water seeping into them and the long period of inactivity. Are you mechanically inclined? If not, it's pool repairman or plumber calling time. 8-)All the best, JERRY
