When pump stops does it still have power?...or is power being cut to pump?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It still has power I'm assuming. The pump starts strongly for about 5 seconds then it slowly starts to slow down then gives a few small bursts of pumping until the error comes up.

is there a run capacitor attached to the motor? And if so is it dry or oily...recessed top or domed top?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have checked the pump for a capacitor. I have unscrewed a cover on top of the pump and found a 7uf capacitor. It does not have any oil on it. I have tested it with my multimeter and read 4.9uf. I have replaced the capacitor with a 6uf which tested ok. I then tested operation of the spa and found it is doing exactly the same as before. Any more ideas?

Hi Billy. I am still waiting for a response from my last question. Have you referred me to someone else and should I keep waiting? Thanks for your help so far but please let me know.
