Response to Hi Rich...thanks for the feedback. Really don't know how to check impeller and problem seems to be hit and miss. Some times it starts and other times just makes a humming sound and I have to shut off pump. Have called a pool service company, hoping it's a simple fix. Thanks again for your help in explaining what might be causing the problem.
