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.

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.

If this is a new motor you purchased, it should indicate whether it's 110v, or 220v. Also the sticker on the motor should show wiring for 110, and/or 220v. when you remove the cap on the back of the motor it will usually have a little plug, or switch that allows you to change from 110 to 220. Older motors you had remove wire nuts and swap wires. L1 vs L2 don't really matter as long as your voltage is correct if it's 110, then you got 1 hot and 1 neutral. Neutral should be white, and Hot should be black, Red, or possible blue or purple. If you got 220V then you have 2 hot wires and no neutral. If you can't tell the current voltage by looking at the sticker and the wires in the back of the motor, and the documentation that came with it, then you should go back to where you got it and make sure. A local motor shop will also probably check it and tell you for free. Now you mentioned grey and pink wires. If your referring to the wires coming from your supply and not the old motor, then I assume they are white and black (or maybe blue or purple) and are discolored from age and heat. the colors of the wires inside the motor can vary from motor to motor, so you need to follow the sticker on the side.

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