Does this sound like the pump is dead?

 

Please check out this vids and tell me if you think the pump is dead?  I thought it was a just an air lock, but a guy told me it sounds like the pump is dead.  Thanks.

Your pump is not turning, not responding to the power that makes the hum. Looks like there are error codes in the digital readout, check on them. Maybe you can manujally free the pump shaft to allow the pump to rotate,maybe not.Check out advice from Backyard Plus site and don't fry yourself or other circuits.

 

On my older spa I had a short-term  acidic water imbalance that, coupled with a leaking shaft seal I did not address over some time, caused my pump shaft to freeze up. It sounded just like yours., hummed but no jets. I ended up replacing the $400 pump, now fine and I am on the water balance often to prevent the same.
