Response to I have a Jacuzi pump for my pond filtration. It is about 10 years old. Suddenly, 2 days ago, the motor gets hot and cuts off power, probably a thermal switch. When the motor cools down it starts by itself, runs for about 10 mins and the on/off cycle repeats. Why is the motor suddenly started getting hot to trip the thermal switch? The label on the motor is very hard to read. What I can read is R.O.Smith. It is a 3/4 HP pump. Which motor you recommend for replacement? Raj
