SOURCE: wire Hayward Super Pump for 115

If you look closely, you should see a small arrow on the black plastic piece on the terminal block(jumper). That arrow lines up with either the 115 or 230 mark on the white terminal board. Make sure it is aligned with the 115.

Then put you two line wires on. It does not matter which wire goes to line 1 and line 2, just be sure you DO NOT put them both on the same terminal. A plastic divider usually seperates the two line connection terminals.

SOURCE: I am not sure where

None of the above. You hook your two line leads (the two hot 115 lines) to L1 and L2 and you hook up the ground to the green screw. Do NOT connect the neutral to the motor.

AO Smith 1.5 HP pool pump motor. Voltage selector broken. Three wires to the switch,Purple, black and white w black stripe. Which two should be connected for 230 volt operation?


Try the black to L2 (L2 will be your Purple). L1 should be connected direct and separate. The black/white striped wire should get capped off.

First, be absolutely sure that your motor is wired for 220v. If it is 110v and you apply 220v the motor will die instantly (after a loud bang). Also verify that your supply is in fact 220v.

Without exception 220v power should be supplied by two wires of the same color, as they are both "hot". Black and white wires are common in 110v wiring, the black being hot and the white neutral.

Every pool pump I have worked on has had two terminals where the wires attach to the motor, L1 and L2, wire orientation does not matter.
Evidently yours only has one. Apparently there is no wiring diagram on the side of the motor either, which is also atypical. Best bet is to call the factory for assistance with this.

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.

220 VAC is more efficient ... so there is some cost savings in the money department. Volts X amp = watts generally ... there is still a savings because you will actually consume fewer watts at 220 (watts is what you are purchasing form the power company)

Wiring depends ...you going to use 110 or 220? if 110 ... black is hot and goes to L1 ... white is nutral and goes to L1.

If 220 ... black is hot and goes to L1 - white is hot and goes to L2.

Your owner manual has a good picture and description of this.

In the plug ... 110 - neutral should go to the left slot.

Is your breaker 110 or 220 (single pole or double pole - one slot or two slots)

These voltages are not compatable!

I suggest you use this pump at 220.
