Its hard for me to tell what it is doing by your description. However, if the pump itself does not come on in either hi or low speed but does buzz or humm when turned on, then it either has something stuck in the impellor and wont turn, or there may be a start capacitor in the pump that has broken. Either way you will need to pull the the pump to check it out. I do not know your mechanical ability but if you have a multi meter and other tools, I can help you trouble shoot the pump.

If the pump is not humming at all but you simply have a click on the control board, then your pump may have become disconnected from the board or unplugged, since that indicates there is no power getting to the motor. It sounds like you may have to have the system looked at by a spa tech.
