Response to Using a Multimeter, how can I determine that my capacitor is my problem and not something else, what setting and what reading. The pump hums but does not start, I understand that the problem could either be the capacitor or the motor itself. My capacitor is only about 4 months old, has a 161-193 MFD. Thanks, David
