Are you sure? Single phase pool motors are not reversible (unless something weird happened that I can't explain). Three phase motors are reversible, but very rare in residential wiring.

Looking directly at the end of the motor shaft (where the impeller goes) it should spin counter- clockwise. Both of the power wires can be attached to either terminal; there is no "polarity".

    You can reverse any split phase motor by reversing the start winding connections inside. That is why so many wires and posts are seen where you put the wiring connections to. 220 volt motors are still split phase and can be done the same way. If it is a capacitor start induction run motor you can reverse the capacitor. Yes three phase is easier to reverse by interchanging any two line wires, but all motors can be reversed except shaded pole motors.

    Thanks for the info! On the motors I have been dealing with the only wiring options on the switch plate are if you want to convert the motor to 115v from 220v. Otherwise the motor is 115v only or 220v only. Obviously there are others out there where the start windings can be switched. I'll definitely remember the other possibility, thanks.

If you hear the CD spin but nothing happens, most likely the lens on the laser pickup is dirty. You can take a q-tip dipped in alcohol (not dripping), rub the lens and gently blow it off with canned air. This will remove dust from under the lens as well. I don't recommend "lens cleaner CD's" that you can purchase as they sometimes rip of the lens.

If the CD does not spin up to the proper speed, it is the motor that spins the disk. This can be temporarily fixed by disconnecting the motor wires and using a 9 volt battery to spin the motor in each direction. The trick is to revers the direction while it is still turning in the opposite direction. This will hopefully burn off the carbon and debris in the motor contacts.

Queen marathon 20 years old does not pump the


If the motor is running then the water pump or the clutch to it has failed. If the motor is not running, the motor has failed. Both fixes are probably too expensive for a 20 year old machine. Unless you are very handy and resourceful it may be time for a new machine.
