I have an A.O Smith SE2F01 115/220v Type C electric motor, it has 4 wires: White/Black/Blue/Red, I want to know which is which? And Does it need a capasitor?


Wiring diagram appears on side of unit.
With wire colors.
Capacitor: each electric motor has a run-winding and a start-winding with capacitor.
Both windings receive power.
The start-winding gets a surge of power from the capacitor > and this starts the motor.
The run-winding brings motor up to full speed.

Replaced an old Magnetek century two speed with a AO smith century two speed. Hooked the wires up the same but unable to get the motor to operate in the high speed mode, suggestions!


Each motor will have wiring diagram on label.
Compare diagram on old motor with new motor.

WIRE COLORS VARY
Which 2-speed timer do you have on the circuit?
Wire lead from NO terminal connects to High speed.
Wire lead from NC terminal connects to Low speed

on the motor should be a diagram detailing the wires. brown white goes to either side of the capacitor and brown wire to other side of capacitor. hi speed goes to normally open contact on the indoor fan relay and the wire designated common on the motor goes to the other side of power from the relay contacts.

I have old spa motor with Red - low speed, Black - High speed, White - Neutral, Green - ground. New Dayton 5PXG3 motor has only L1, L2 and ground. How do you wire that?


The motor should work if you connect the black wire to L1, white wire to L2 and green wire to ground. The red wire should be cut so the conductor does not extend past the insulation and the end wrapped with electrical tape.This should be correct if the motor is a 120 VAC motor. If the motor is a 240 VAC motor then the white wire is not really neutral. It should be wrapped in both the motor wiring area with black electrical tape and the other end in the timer should also be wrapped with black tape.

If this causes a problem because you now have no low speed for the spa then the only way to get the low speed is to squire a 2 speed motor.

I hope this helps.

Is it going to run on 230V then? If so you would normally use red and black. The white wire should be a neutral and the ground wire is obviously ground.

Do you have a meter you can use to confirm the voltage between the wires? If you do you'll want to start with red and white since you seem to think black was not being used before. If the voltage reads 230 and the motor is set up for 230 then attach one wire to L1 and the other to L2...it will not matter which is connected where as long as one is on each terminal. Insulate the black and ground the ground lead to the motor ground screw.

If the voltage is not 230 between those two check between red and black. If that is the 230 then insulate white and put red and black to L1 and L2.

Need wiring diagram for installation of an A.O. Smith DL1036 blower motor. Unsure is it is wired correctly. Wires provided are Black, Red, Yellow, and Blue.


These wire colors are the different speeds for the motor. You will have 1 wire going to the heat, 1 wire going to the cool, and 2 wires on the park terminals on the board if available. It will actually tell you the speeds of the colors provided on the motor itself i.e. BLACK=High and so on. Without knowing what model of unit you are working on, it's hard to say where exactly the wires will hook up, but the majority of the time you will have a electrical board inside the furnace and the terminals that I described will be marked. Hope this helps and good luck!

Breaker keeps tripping when turning on pump.


The red and black wires if ran correctly are the load lines(power). The white is neutral or ground. If its a 1/2 to1-1/2 hp motor connect the red and black wires to terminals #1 and #4. If its 2 hp use #1 and #4. If its 3 hp use #2 and #4. Connect the white wire to the green colored screw. A grounding conductor should always be connected under the green grounding screw, which is located within the terminal compartment of the motor. You can check the breaker for the wire colors, one should be black and the other red. The white wire should be terminated to the neutral/ground bar in the can.

Black and Red are your two hots for high and low speed. The Green is always ground and the Blue would be neutral.
