Question about Hayward Pool & Spa
The old pool motor for a hayward superpump model#B227SE serial #bx3-18 with a rectangle housing seized up. so i am replacing with a AOsmith UST1072. Both 3/4 hp motors. every site says this is the proper motor swap. but i replaced everything and now when i hit the power switch, it hums and i have to tap it with a mallet to get it to start. Cant hardly believe the capacity would be bad brand new out of the box. Also when it does start, you can hear the metal piece (i think its called a centrifugal)in the back of the motor click against a white plastic piece that is connected to 2 thin copper pieces that touch when the white plastic piece moves up. And it ran for about 1 sec without water in the trap (because it sucked it all out) and it started to smoke a little. its not seized up or anything and there are no obstructions to keep it from turning properly. Didn't know what else to do. any help would be greatly appreciated. ive looked everywhere thanks

There may debris that has passed by the strainer basket and jammed the pump. I've personally got the world's worse pool... it's right next to a deadora tree with small pine type needles...they always get by the strainer basket and sometimes lodge in the pump.
To remedy the this, I take the protective cap off the exposed end of the motor and turn the shaft back and forth with a crescent wrench.
This frees the shaft up, then turn the switch on. You may need to do this a few times.
Also, with the pump off, remove the strainer and reach into the intake and see if anything is lodged in the opening... feel around with your finger to see if you can feel any debris.
If this doesn't solve it, you'll need to unbolt the motor with the pump impeller free from the basket housing. Once free clean the intake and surrounding area of all debris.
Being careful with the o-rings, reinstall. that should get you up and running...
let me know how it goes...

I do not read anywhere that you have a 230V DPDT switch which you will need in order to select the high or low speed. You will have 6 terminalas on the switch. Line connections usually go to the middle set. Put put sides of one pole to the common terminal and put one of the other posts to the hi and the other to the low terminal. I prefer to use am on-off-on switch so the switch in the middle turns off the pump. Flip it one way for hi and the other for low. If you post your stock number from the two-speed motor I could give you a more accurate diagram if you need it. Generally, 1 is common, 2 hi and 3/4 low.

SOURCE: Model SP15921TLNP 1HP pool pump.
Are you sure it has a capacitor. I say this because capacitance motors tend to be fan motors. If there is an integral capacitor you should be able to find its size on the label plate for the motor.
Most motors are not capacitance though.
