Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.It sounds like you have power to the pump but it's not running which would indicate the need to replace the pump. You could replace just the pump motor but when you factor in the added labor cost it's better to replace the whole thing.
