I have a spa form tub about 8 years old - all working well

Customer Question

Hi I have a spa form tub about 8 years old - all working well except I get various errors like OH and LF
I notice that sometimes the circulation pump does not kick in properly (I can hear a hum but no circulation)
Often after pushing jets1 and turning off the circulation will start (it's the same physical pump)
I suspect that the pump may be sticking at low power.
not sure what to do.

I have already ensured there are no airlocks by bleeding the two pipes at the bleed points by each pump. Not sure if there are other bleed points. I have used a descaled and flushing aid and changed water regularly as well as keeping ph, total all properly balanced.

does the pump have a capacitor present for the pump motor?
