There should be a diageram under the cover that covers the wires,

Or note the two terminals marked L1 & L2. These are for the 2 power source wires from the circuit breakers. The ground is a seperate terminal.

You should not be servicing this type of equipment if you do not know the answer to your question,

Good Luck and make sure this motor is GROUNDED

I had a new motor installed for the pool pump and it keeps blowing the breaker. The pump is a AO Smith SQ1102. We have a 20 AMP breaker dedicated to the motor. The pool comes on for about 30 minutes a

How long has it been since you have the new motor installed? Did it work after the job was completed? Very possible that the starter circuit has failed, usually when it comes on and runs but overheats and stops, the starter and run circuits are both engaged and that causes it to overheat. If you can read the wiring diagram on the motor and make sure it it correctly wired, you may save it if it is a simple loose wire. Otherwise it sounds like you will have to have whoever changed it come back and do a warranty repair.

Wiring new motor

I am assuming you are running 110 vac. Usually there is a diagram on the plate with the motor specification. You want the low voltage for110 and high for 220 motor wiring diagram you connect the motor as shown. If it is not on that motor it maybe on the old one they are usually the same.

You will need wire nuts to tie together the wires.

Note if this is a capacitive start or switch start. Allot of pool pumps are Switch start.
