SOURCE: need to know where wire that comes from controls

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

Assuming you have a standard white, black red, green cordset, green to ground, white to common, red to high and black to low. If the speeds are ‘reversed’, interchange the red and black leads. You likely have an AOSmith motor which will be labeled 1, 2, ¾ on the terminal board. 1 is common, 2 is high and ¾ is low.

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

SOURCE: I took the pump out and repaced with a new one.

all US motors should have a wiring diagram on the side of the motor unit. The wires going into the pump would hold their same values. I am assuming the previous pump was two speed as well, if not that is your problem.
assuming that they are both two speed reference the common on the pumps motor diagram, and connect the white wire to that terminal.
reference the diagram for correct low speed and connect the black wire to that termial,
repeat for the high speed.
I deal alot with the flo master pumps and they should all be labeled. The most important thing is to get the common correct, switching the other two wires (black and red) incorrectly would simply result in high coming on when low is supposed to and vice versa.

If there really is not a diagram, here is the most typical setup for that motor.

(if you look closely at the terminals on the motor, there are numbers there)
connect the white common to terminal #5
connect the red hot wire to terminal #1
connect the black hot wire to terminal #2
connect the ground
done

Hope this helps.

Iam replacng my home a/c blower motor. My unit hasa red a black and a white wire. My new motor has a black wire a blue wire a red wire and a yellow wire. I need to know which color wire goes to which


On the original motor, red was low speed, black was high speed and white was common. The new motor should either have a diagram on the side of it or within the box for verification, but the black SHOULD also be high speed and the red wire SHOULD be low speed , the blue wire SHOULD be medium and the yellow SHOULD be common. However, you MUST verify those connections on the wiring diagram provided with the new motor before you connect or you will probably let out the MAJIC SMOKE !!! The speed you decide not to utilize can just be taped off and zip tied to the bundle.

You made no comment about two brown wires, and if either motor has two browns, they go to the run capacitor.

Each motor will have wiring diagram on label.
Compare diagram on old motor with new motor.

Wiring- Connecting wiring on replaced fan motor


Your new fan motor should have a diagram with it or at least printed on the side of the motor, that will help a lot from your end. As for me, I don't know what unit you have, so I will try to help you with just the basics.

Your old motor probably had 3 wires. One went to the contactor, that is the "Line Voltage", one went to the Common terminal on the old capacitor (COM), that's the other "Line Voltage" wire, and the last one went to the "FAN" terminal on the old capacitor. The reason the old capacitor looks different is because it works for both the compressor and the fan motor (split capacitor). You still need this hooked up for the compressor to work.

The new fan motor.
These vary in brands and wiring so I can not tell you the colors without knowing exactly which motor you have. On the new motor wiring diagram, you should see the "Line Voltage" as described above that 2 of the wires are ran to each other (just on the diagram, not wired together on the unit). This is your power wire that goes to the contactor on the unit, usually black, and your Common wire that runs to the capacitor. You can still run this wire (COM) to the common terminal on the old capacitor since you still have to use the old capacitor for the compressor and the common terminal should still be jumper-ed from the contactor to the (COM) terminal. Then you will probably have 2 wires for the new capacitor, usually Brown and Brown/White. These wires run to each side of the new capacitor and doesn't matter which terminal. Then you will take a new jumper wire from the (COM) terminal on the old capacitor to the terminal on the new capacitor that has your Brown/White lead. Make sure you secure the capacitors inside the unit so not to touch anything surrounding them. Your new motor might also be a "Reversible" motor that has reversing wires also. Again, your new motor diagram can tell you how to hook these up. You have to have it spinning the right way, most of the time it is CCW (counter-clockwise).

I'm sorry I can't be any clearer on this, but without knowing the brands, models, etc, I'm in the dark. If you need any additional help, I would be glad to help! Good luck and hope you get to cooler days!

2 speed switch wiring dieagram


The motor will have wiring diagram and voltage on nameplate.
You can re-post question with information that shows on nameplate for more exact information, or keep reading below:
If motor is rated for 240Volts, then it will not work with 120V.
If motor is rated for both 120V and 240V, then either Low voltage or high voltage will work, and one wire will be common, and 1 wire will for 120 and other wire for 240.
If motor is rated 120Volt two speed, then one wire will be neutral, and 1 wire low speed, and other wire high speed. You can connect your wire to either low of high, and cap other wire.
If motor is 240volt two speed, then one wire will be common, and 1 wire low speed, and other wire high speed.
If motor is rated 3-phase, then all three wires are connected to the voltage shown on nameplate.
If motor is rated 3-phase two speed, you may need electrician to wire the motor correctly.

What happen with a wrong connection on a single phase 2hp sp motor


I'm not sure which motor you have - the heading shows a 1HP type - yet you talk about a 2HP type. Anyway, the label on the motor should have a wiring diagram. You must have a label on the motor to know how to wire. It may have two diagrams - one designated as "high voltage" and the other "low voltage". Check the label for voltage.. it likely says "120/240 volts". The 120 uses the low volts diagram and the 240 uses the high volt diagram. If the motor has terminals L1 and L2, these will most likely be the point of connection for power - regardless if it 120 or 240, unless the label states otherwise. Unless the neutral connection is specified on the label, it does not matter which L1 or L2 you connect it to.

The other terminals will be required to be connected properly. Motors use these connections or jumpers to set options such as voltage, direction of rotation, speed(s), etc. An incorrect setting here can cause unexpected results as far as speed and rotation, or catastrophic results if you supply this motor with 240 volts but set the jumper for 120 volts.

Here's a link to their catalog with telephone numbers for you to review.

Good luck!

Fixya does not sell Intermatic P1353 timer. We answer questions for do-it-yourselfers like yourself.
Open following link for Intermatic P1353 manuals with wiring and programming diagrams.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#P1353

1) It is very likely that pump wires will change over color-for-color, but I am electrician and would never do that because I would not want to burn out my new motor without poking around first. I would look at manual for old motor and compare with manual for new motor. I would certainly read the new manual and compare where wires are connected to timer.

2) As a general rule with P1353 timer, High speed connects to terminal 4. Low speed connects to terminal 6. The remaining wire connects to terminal 3 with a jumper wire to terminal 5.

3) This information applies only if you are replacing a 2-speed pump, and timer was wired by diagrams shown in the manual, and timer is correctly programmed for MODE2 2-speed pump.

4) You can add a comment for more free help. I will answer back. I know this timer front and back, it is complicated for novice. And you should remember that I do not know what is inside your pump manual unless you tell me, and I do not read minds.

5) You can also pay for fixya expert to work with you while you work on pump.

Motor Wiring
Old Motor
Brown wire is Start
Yellow wire is run or Power
Black wire is High Speed or Common
The other two taps are speed taps, but you have a single speed application
And high speed is what you need ,that’s why there’s not any wires
on Red and Blue if high speed was to much then you would move the
Black wire to one of the other taps RED low speed or Blue Medinm speed
New Motor
White goes to the Yellow wire from the capacitor
Black goes to the Black wire you took off of high speed on old motor
Of course both Brown wires go to the capacitor and Green to ground
If a capacitor doesn’t discharge it doesn’t mean it’s bad
but the capacitors don’t last as long as they used.
Any time you put in a new motor always replace the capacitor
It will save you a lot of time and grief later on.
