Question about AO Smith 1.5 hp 3450rpm 48Y Frame 115/230 volts Square Flange pool pump replacement motor Electric Motor #
I have only 115 going to pump measuring the Black wire. White wire is common Hooked up both black and white to L1 and L2......motor started and blew 15 amp fuse and motor got hot. turn all off and disconnected. I thought I had two 110 going to L1 and L2. White wire shows continuity and also about 10 volts. Should white wire be connected to Terminal A.???
Black goes to L1 white goes to L2 make sure to look on side of motor to change from 220 volt to 110 volt either a knob or changing wires brown and white to different locations hope you didnt fry motor

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
It doesn't matter which line connects to which line terminal. Put white and black on L1 and L2, It won't matter which one is on either terminal. Green of course goes to the ground screw.

SOURCE: I have old spa motor
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.
