A motor can run that hot and still be within the temperature it can handle. It likely has an internal overload device that will shut it off if it exceeds that temperature. If you see something like "thermally protected" on the motor nameplate, you are ok. If it is getting noisy as it runs it may need servicing.

One to each line. Be sure you set the motor to the same voltage as the line you are connecting. They are 230V out of the box and your wire colors indicate you are likely connecting the pump to a 115V line.

SOURCE: Installed a new 3/4 hp Polaris pool sweep pump.

Those pumps are dual voltage...Are you certain you connected it correctly for the voltage present? If the motor is set up for 230V (as it usually is when purchased new) and you only feed it 115 volts it will heat up and then act as you are describing. The side of the motor will have a diagram for how to reconnect the motor if necessary.

If connected correctly you would have a voltage issue in the line to the pump (unlikely). Check the voltage present at the motor terminals under load and look for a drop of more than 10%. If this is the case you will likely need an electrician.

Like I said though, it is usually because of wrong voltage setup for the problem you describe.

Replacing Pool pump motor

Which control panel?
White can be Com, and Black Lo, and Red/Blue Hi
But this is guessing without knowing control panel wiring.

For example T106 timer. Wires can be any color.
High connects to terminal 4
Low connects to terminal 1
Com connects to terminal A

I have a 110 Pool Pump and I am trying to wire it into a Tork1103NC timer. From the pool pump I have a black, white and green wire that I need to wire into the timer. Can you tell me what position those...


Here is Tork 1103 wired for single load.

1) The green pump wire and bare copper wire go to green ground screw
2) Pump black wire goes to pole 2, the NO (normally open) pole
3) Pump white wire goes to unmarked screw

4) Black from circuit breaker goes to pole L
The T1103 comes with a removable brass bar that connects pole L and pole 1
If that removable brass bar is not there, then add a jumper between pole L and pole 1 as shown in diagram above
5) White neutral from breaker box goes to unmarked pole (all whites connect to unmarked pole)

In your case, pole X is not used. Pole X is NC or normally closed > which means the power is ON continuously until timer turns on, and when timer turns ON, the NC pole turns OFF

Hello, I have 2 black wires coming from the junction box, and a copper ground wire. I connected the green wire to the ground. Where do I connect the red, white, and black wires?

The timer should have red, black,blue and green wires. (no white?) If you have only the two black wires coming from junction box, then connect green to ground like you did. Connect the incoming black (HOT) to the black wire on the timer.connect the outgoing (to the light) to the blue wire on the timer. Cap of with wire nut the red wire. This is for a single pole switch installation (Only switch for the light) If this is for a 3-way control (where you have 2 or more switches) then you use the red.
