SOURCE: rewiring mootor from 230v down to 115v

Diagram for aosmith motor b381 is here: http://www.electricmotorwarehouse.com/IMAGES/B381_connection.htm

However, I believe that this motor will be more efficient at 230v depending on load conditions. At 115v this motor will draw more amps and tend to run hot, but situation rules. Enjoy

Changeing 115volt to 230 volt


Most power Flo pumps run above ground pools and run on 115v only.You can look at the wiring diagram on the motor label to see if it is convertible, it will show wiring configurations and amps for both 115v and 230v. If not, it is a 115v motor only.

Wiring diagram 3/4 hp boat lift motor


It will be dependent upon the line voltage and switching mechanism...

Please advise drum switch or relays?
115V or 230V
Remote control present?

If a drum switch, is it a 6 or 12 terminal model or some other configuration?
Make and model of the switch?

There may be more questions depending on the answers to these...do you have a wiring diagram for the control? Are you replacing a motor and have the old and new motor schematics?

I just bought a AOSmith 1hp pool pump. I do not


Well first did you have an old one you're replacing? Check it. Second you could test your voltage with a tester (best idea then you know for sure). Third, you can look at the circuit breaker in your panel, and if it is a single breaker , it is 125V If it's a double pole breaker (two wide with wide handle) then it's 230V. Usually if it is 230V then the wires coming to it would both be black, or black and red, with a bare or green ground. Usually if it's 115V you'll have one black (hot), one white (neutral) and one bare or green(ground) but at times someone will wire one 230 with black and white. There should also be a large bonding copper jumper connected to a lug on the outside of the motor to bond your system to the pool (NOT AN EQUIPMENT GROUND)

Just installed a new pump. After one minute of operation it shuts down. Why?


The pump is capable of 115V or 230V operation.

Most likely what is causing your pump to shut down is the thermal overload.
Possible causes of thermal overload:
1. 230 V winding powered by 115V
2. 115V winding powered by 230V

Recheck your connections per the diagram either in the owners manual OR on the label of the motor.

When a NEW pump has issues almost every time the problem is in the connecting wiring either from the main power supply or on the motor terminal lugs.

Just look closely at the wires.. IF your absolutely sure that it is connected correctly. Go to the main power panel.. Push the CB for the pump to OFF hard and then back to on. (This resets the breakers) If it repeats... the symptoms... I need to know what wires you have connected up on the motor to what terminals by LABEL of each terminal.

Change wiring from 230v to 115v


There should be a wiring diagram on the name plate of the motor, or inside the wiring compartment or on that cover . Would be something with dots and HI , LO, and wire numbers.. or just a notation of 120 , 220 volts.
How is it wired now?

My motor is wired for 230v and I need it to be 115v


It should be. Look closely at the motor nameplate and you should see a small diagram telling how to connect the motor for 115v or 230v. Most newer pumps have a small selector of some sorts. Either a plug that pulls off a couple post the include an idicator arrow for where to set the plug for either voltage, or a dial you turn to show it. Either way, you should be able to set the motor for 115 rather easily.
