Question about AO Smith 1 1/2 HP 115/230V 56C Replacement Motor

1 Answer

Irrigation sprinkler pump, flotec, 230VAC wiring

I have an A O Smith 1 HP pool pump motor. I have disconnected it from the pump (Jacuzzi Magnum pump) and am trying to put it back on but I did not tag the wiring. What I need to know is which wire goes where. There are three wires, 1 each, green, red and black (the shortest) On the motor is L1 and L2 connections and then above them there is another screw where a wire goes. Any idea what goes where? BTW, this site forces you to type in an exact brand, model but the site does not contain the one I have so I picked the closest one. flowtec 2hp irrigation sprinkler pump, 230vac, I am running 230vac to the switch and out to pump. Pump MFG shows green on case as ground and two other terminals for what? Where do I put the white wire? Hope someone can helpout. Thank you, Jim - Boise, ID

Green to srcew on the motor. this is ground.,
Black on T1
Red on T2

If the rotation is going the wrong way, simply switch the black to T2
Red to T1.

Check this before you couple it to the pump..

Motor runs for 10 seconds and shuts off


I believe it is your starting capacitor, It is a long round thing usually black that has two wires, this is what makes it kick on. just us rubber handled pliars when disconnecting the other one. because it holds electricity. You can get one at a hardware or pool supply, usually 10.00 or so...I hope this helps

IF THE SCREW ABOVE IS IN THE METAL MOTOR HOUSING IT IS MOST LIKELY THE GROUND. GREEN WIRES ARE ASSOCIATED WITH GROUND IN ALL ELECTRICAL APPLICATIONS. YOU SHOULD BE SAFE IN HOOKING THE GREEN TO THE SCREW. HOPE THIS HELPS, JODY
