Person Contacted : Ramkumar
Per vendor, pump impeller gets jammed due rust, bad water etc. At the time, should stop the motor to prevent further damage. Then get the water side of the pump cleaned – you can do yourself if you have some tools. But continued operation of motor when impeller jammed will damage the impeller / shaft. In this case shaft got damaged but luckily the lathe work salvaged it.
As of Nov. 2018 : Working fine
They are authorized Crompton Greaves and Kirloskar dealers dealers and do repair work for them
19th Jan. 2019 : Pump got jammed again, motor burnt !! Rewound by them at Rs. 850/= with 3 months warranty ( Receipt No. 1316)
But when reinstalled, bearings gave a LOT of noise. Removed and they replaced FOC. As of now, motor runs smooth.
