It was running fine , pipe burst, unit shut down, now the breaker won't reset
Expert:  Billy replied 1 year ago.

you probably still have water in the windings. If the waterhit direct on motor it may be a day or 2 before it can reset....and that is giving it the situation to dry out.

Please keep in mind also that if the water hit any circuitry, that part is to be replaced.

Can you leave a temp heat source near motor?
