Anyone tried VETUS water pressure pumps?

I have had water pressure pump issues over the last few days.
Both are Johnsons and are 12 year old but have had light use until 18mths ago.
One pump works when we install it but after leaving for a few hours no longers works.
Have replaced the pressure switch and we get the same results.
Another does the same, but keeps humming in the background and gets hot to the touch
Pressure switch replaced here as well.
Both have strainers before the pump so shouldn't be a blockage.
24+ volts coming to them.

I have come to the conclusion that they are dying/dead and being Xmas day and not near the mainland was forced to buy online.

Trying a 13lpm 24v Vetus that was the right price and should be here in a few days.
Anyone have any experience with them?

Thanks
It was only a few dollars more than a no name brand but half the price of a Johnson/Jabsco/Shurflo.

Needed it fast so here's fingers crossed that it does the job.
