Water leaks from pool pump?

Pool pump motor Hums, shaft does not turn?
Check electric power supply into the pool pump motor for correct voltage. If the voltage is correct, turn off electric power supply and open the pool pump’s wet end and check that the impeller and motor’s shaft turns freely. If not, motor may need to be replaced. If shaft turns freely, remove motor capacitor and meter it for continuity. Replace the pool motor capacitor if not working.
Pool pump motor runs, turns off for a few minutes, comes back on?
Check electric supply in both sides. If it is correct voltage, then the pool pump motor is overheating. Check the pool pump to make sure it is priming and full of water.
