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.

I have a AO smith ST1152 and red black and green wires. How do I wire it


Verify the voltage to the pump. These days motors and pumps largely are set to run on 230v out of the box (for in ground pools). If your supply voltage is 115v, the motor will run at half speed. This would cause poor suction. If this is the case, do this:

On the side of the motor there is a diagram on how to convert the wiring from 230v to 115v so it will run on the correct voltage. Most of the time, that's the issue. Flip the breaker off before working on it.

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.

A o smith b854 motor schematic diagram 115v . How do I hook up 115v to the factory set 230v?


Remove the back of the pump housing ... inside you will find the 110 volt connection place.

If your pump is on a dedicated line (as it should be) run it on 220 VAC ... To convert your line from 110 to 220 all you need is a double pole breaker of the proper amperage ... take the white wire presently on the ground bus bar and put it on the other side of the new double pole breaker. Then you will have 220 ... and you will save a few bucks on electricity.

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.

The pump comes factory set for 230v. Power to the motor is 115v so I switched the jumper as indicated. The jumper is set on 2 posts with an arrow pointing to 230v. I moved it to 1 post and the arrow now...


CHECK YOUR BREAKER IT MIGHT BE THAT YOU ARE 230V .. IF IT IS A WIDE BREAKER ITS 230 OR IF IT IS A SLIM BREAKER ITS 115V , A VOLT METER IS YOUR BEST FRIEND.. REMEMBER TO VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE FIXIT GUY ! THANKS JAY

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?

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
