Response to I have a Pentair Pump 7-177475-20 (1.5 hp, 1.1SF, Y56Y, CX) that would not start after running well for a few days. After watching a youtube video, I spun the center rod and "jump start" it. It only runs for about an hour before overheating and shutting off. There is no clog at the impeller. I was going to replace the capacitor next. Can you advise? Can you tell me how old this pump is? I will replace it if it is beyond its typical lifespan. If I replace it, which model do you recommend?
