About an hour ago my home circulator starts short cycling. Looks like cycling on internal thermal protector.
I don't have spare parts.
Motor has power.
Looks like motor is free enough but pump is dragging, feels like tight bushing
Guessing motor doesn't get to full operating speed and is drawing more amps and trips motor internal thermal protector.
1) Was thinking of loading pump bearing oiller with penetrating oil for tonight, any other ideas?
I oiled it 3 weeks ago 10-30 oil
2) Home Depot is open and has those TACO circulators, anyone know what # would have same flow curve as mine.
Taco's are shorter flange to flange, pain to change pipe length
3) Anyone around here have a pump head maybe a motor too.
Pump head is Bell and Gossett 189134 replaced in 17 years ago
Pump motor is Bell and Gossett 1/12hp # MRF58JV
