SOURCE: How to manually reset an AO Smith 2 hp motor?

If you did not press a reset ( and even if you did) the motor is damaged and that is causing the circuit breaker to trip. You need to have the motor inspected to see if the damage is repairable or if you need a new motor. A local electric motor repair shop should be able to take care of that for you. The thermal overload has reset itself if after cooling down the motor is trying to start but trips the breaker.

To be certain it is the motor, disconnect the line leads and be sure they are insulated from ground and one another. Turn the breaker back on. It should stay closed which confirms it is the motor tripping it when connected.

If for some reason the breaker still trips, there is a problem with the electrical circuit feeding the pump.

According to our Emerson parts dealer, parts for that motor and the motor itself are obsolete. They could not provide a part number to search for or an equal part either. We can quote you a new BN34 if you wish to contact us through www.arrowpools.net.

Switched to new AO Smith B230SE motor for pool pump. Old motor had left-hand screw that held impeller to shaft. New motor does not have an opening for screw. Will impeller be fine without screw?


Did you try the Century A.O. Smith B230SE motor without the center screw? I'm having the same problem and I'm asking the reseller for advice. It would be great to know if I need the center screw is required? The impeller screws on the shaft, but is the center screw required?

You didn't indicate exactly what AO Smith motor model you have, but most likely it's Capacitor start/run if it doesn't have a switch. The important thing is to replace with the same MFD as the old so you have the same starting characteristics.

There is not a point setting for air compressors. The pressure switch can be adjusted. Remove the cover from the pressure switch. Adjust the nut tighter for a higher cut off pressure or looser for a lower cut off pressure. It sounds like the compressor is trying tostart under load. If the unloader valve is not working, the compressor will draw excess amperage and do what you describe. The unloader valve releases the pressure in the cylinder at the end of the run cycle so the compressor can start the next run cycle under no load.

AO smith compressor motor missing toggle for duel voltage


Most motors will have a wiring diagram on them with numbers not colors, and show the wiring configurations for both voltages. If you do not have this then you may want to contact a motor shop and see if they can get it wired for you.
