Response to My pool pump is intermittently tripping the circuit breaker, especially after a rain. The pump is 3 years old. I do not see any data on the starter capacitor, which gets quite warm when the pump is running. I do not think the circuit breaker itself is defective. The impeller does not appear to be clogged with debris. What is the likely cause? Thank you.
