Aquabot Bravo propeller not moving

by Jeff
(Delray Beach, FL)

I have an Aquabot Bravo and it seems to be scurring along just fine, but its not moving any water. I checked the propeller and its not moving, the motor is warm so it appears to be working. I pulled the propeller guard off and tried to start it manually, but it wont start. I can feel resistance when I try and turn it while the aquabot is on. The propeller moves freely when it is powered off. Is this a capacitor issue? The model number of the pump is AS00035R if that helps anyone. Thanks.
ADMIN REPLY:If the capacitors are bad the pump motor will start with a manual push on the impeller. May have water in the case causing a short.
