SOURCE: High Ringing Noise

Sounds like it just needs lubricating. It's probably dry seals rubbing against the stainless shaft.

Bad bearings usually make grinding noises. Replacing bearings can be a DIY job, but not a teriffically simple one.

Black and white are usually power. an ohmmeter will confirm. Brown are for capacitors. There is almost always a diagram on the motor someplace. Eric

SOURCE: Hayward Self-Priming Pump with AO Smith 1 HP 56J

the pump must not have any air leaks in the suction side of it,, or it will just **** air and not water,,, water is very heavy you see, however i think its the impeller in the pump thats the problem,,,you should try to put water in the out let of the pump so you fill the pump with water first if its dryed out it may just wear out the impeller before it starts to **** water up, if this still dont work turn off the stop **** and strip out the pump to look at the impeller any wear on it and it will need a new one fitted
i hope this has help you, good luck

Is it going to run on 230V then? If so you would normally use red and black. The white wire should be a neutral and the ground wire is obviously ground.

Do you have a meter you can use to confirm the voltage between the wires? If you do you'll want to start with red and white since you seem to think black was not being used before. If the voltage reads 230 and the motor is set up for 230 then attach one wire to L1 and the other to L2...it will not matter which is connected where as long as one is on each terminal. Insulate the black and ground the ground lead to the motor ground screw.

If the voltage is not 230 between those two check between red and black. If that is the 230 then insulate white and put red and black to L1 and L2.

We are trying to replace our 3 wire well pump with a 2 wire pump. It starts up and then stops. Any ideas?


A 3 phase motor replaced by a single phase motor has to be connected to phase one and neutral. You're going to use more power that way. How long does it run before shutting off? Is the new pump getting hot? Have an electrician determine which wires are the phase hot and neutral. Hooking up 2 phases without a neutral will trip the thermal overload in the motor.

How to change a 3 phase to single phase motor


You cannot change a 3 phase motor into a single phase motor because the windings are different in these motors. You need to buy a single phase motor to replace the 3 phase motor.

I have a brand new IR compressor model 2475N7.5 with a 7.5 hp 460v 3 ph motor. is it possible to convert it to a single phase power supply? or should i just exchange it? ... I ordered it thru Northern Tool...


When you google home made 3 phase converters, you will find many ways to make use of 220v single phase instead, however you are limited as to the hp that the motor will produce. If you spin the motor first then apply 220v, the motor will continue to turn at much reduced hp. You need full power to turn a type 30 pump depending on pulley combination/ setup. Best to return the unit and get one that will run on 220v single phase. It will most likely consume more power to do the same work however it would cost a great deal to install 3 phase. Most likely not even available at all. Many years ago, I worked at Sears and happened to see an electrician coming down from roof access of building. He told me that sears had a 3 phase generator being turned by a 220v single phase motor to run an air conditioning unit. He said that it worked quite well. Does not sound cost effective.

Wiring of 2hp motor


You need to take advice from the motor manufacturer or reconditioner to ensure you are wiring it correctly.

Typically a basic single phase motor will have a start winding and a run winding. That usually makes four wires for a reversible motor but that can be cut to three if the motor must run in one direction only so the three wires would be start, run and common.

The run is connected to the hot side of the supply and the start similarly connected to the hot side except the start capacitor will be in series. The common wire will require connecting to a neutral and of course the motor body will need a ground unless it is double insulated.

It should be possible to sort which is which using a sensitive ohmmeter.

How to connect the 3 phase power supply to a 3 phase synchronous motor with control panel


I assume you have 3 phase power where this is going? The panel has 3 legs, 2 are 110 volt and one is 208 volt, you will need a tester to find out which is which if it is not marked, the motor should have a map on it for the wires to attach to, they go the same way, two, 110 and one, 208, I hope this helps, There will be one wire for a ground or a solid wire separate from the unit.
