Pumps, but stops
by: Doug in s.d.ca.

How many is a "few" minutes?

What's the pressure when it stops?

Does it seem to bog down while it's running, or just cut off?

What, if anything, do you do to get it to run again?

Given the cord was dry rotted, maybe the first thing to test would be the capacitors:

Let us know, please. Good luck.
