My Jandy Stealth pump bound up at some point yesterday - I

Customer Question

My Jandy Stealth pump bound up at some point yesterday - I went to add some chemicals in the early evening and when I turned it on at the timer, the motor just hummed. Took the pump apart and got a stick out of the impeller. When I put everything back together and tried to run it, nothing. Have been trying to source the problem and it seems that my timer may now be the problem. It keeps the time,,, but when I put a volt meter up against the terminals for the load wires, I get nothing. The pump and the heater are on the same terminals, then the blower is wired with the live wires coming in. The heater seems to get power when I throw the switch - it shows the same sequence on the LED as usual when I turn the pump on. It's an Intermatic PF1112T timer. Possible the relay burned out while the pump was bound up, or...?
