Question about AO Smith A O Smith Motors A O Smith 3/4hp 115/230v Square Flange Motor - Sq1072
When I depress the on switch, there is no sound and motor not coming on. When the tub was installed, they did not leave an access door to the motor. Can the switch be checked from the top? Does the housing come off from the top? Thank you.
First of all we need to determine what kind of pump you are talking about.
A Bath Pump will have an air switch located inside the motor compartment that the air tubing from the on switch is located.
That switch could be bad.
