It may need a new start capacitor. If that doesn't work then it's time for a new pump.
Start capaitors are pretty cheap but you'll need to get one at Graingers. They're pretty easy to fix. Just 2 wires to disconnect and reconnect. It's a small cannister usually right on top of the motor. If you don't have a Graingers nearby then you'll have to replace the pump. Given your description there's maybe a 50/50 chance a new capacitor will solve the problem.
You haven't provided a model number for the pump. If you don't have a Graingers nearby then you'll have to replace the pump.
Don't know VAMAC if it's similar to Graingers then it's a possibility. The other places don't carry capacitors. I'm striking out finding any specs on that model number. Like I siad before the capacitor is a small cannister attached to the outside of the motor. If your's isn't visible then you can't replace it.
Ok, do you have more questions?
