Hello,
Replaced old style with new la01n about 4 years ago. Pump quit working 2 days ago. The motor is hot to the touch and when I turn it on there is a single clicking noise. There is a gentle flow of water out of the back of the actual cleaner...I'm not sure where that pressure is coming from...does the main pool pump send a small amount of water to the pressure side cleaner? Or is that small flow of water at the cleaner coming from the booster? is my problem a bad motor, bad bearings , and capacitors? Thanks. Gabe

Yes, your main pump does run

Yes, your main pump does run and supply water to the cleaner booster pump, sounds like you may have a bad motor on the booster pump, or a drop in voltage can cause a pump to run hot as well.

Thanks Richard. I figured it out the other day. Bad capacitor.
