There should be a wiring diagram on the side of the motor make sure if you are running 120 volt you changed the shunting on motor or might have hooked up incorrect if no info call a professional

I recently acquired a GL Spa w/Balboa Inst. GVS500 Board. Everything works great but the jets won't turn off. manual says press 1 for low, 2 for high and 3 to shut them off. They don't shut off?

The button on the Control panel labeled Jets or Pump, is dead! Non reactive to the press.
The relay for the pump is bad, as it may be 'fused' in closed position,
how you can tell... When you press the Jets button, is there an indicator light? If so, does the light go on and off as you press that Jets button?
if yes, then the button is good, because the indicator light is indicating to you that there is communication between the panel and the circuitboard.
if there is no changing of the indicator light, then that indicates to you, that there is No communication, and therefore the control panel button is not good.
if you have no indicator light, or any way that informs you which speed the jet pump is in, then you can either, listen for a click at the circuit board, or use a multi meter checking voltage.
if you are handy with a multimeter, and you want to continue on with the test, be very careful! This is high-voltage in the circuitboard area. You can disconnect the power to the spa. Then, unplug the pump amp plug off the board. And place your meter leads on the appropriate wire connection. If 110, you read across the white and the black wire position. If 220, then across the same wires. Not knowing which model you have, I therefore can't tell you which color wire is high-speed or low-speed. But most commonly, black wire will be high-speed and the Red Wire will be low speed.
1 meter lead will be on either red or black, and the other meter lead will always remain on the white wire.
and now, as if your meter was the pump, turn the power back on to the spa, and start pressing that Jets button... You should see voltage on your meter, with the press of the button. Then bolted should disappear, with another press. Now move one Meaderli from the black wire to the Red Wire position and you should see the same results.
( to clarify, when I say black wire or Redwire or white wire, it would be the metal pin / slot that those colored wires of the plug would align with) .
if there is no voltage changes on your meter, when you have a bad button, which means you need to replace the complete control panel.

Im hooking my pool pump up to a 220 and I dont know what wires go where. On the motor there is a A and B and a L1 and L2. What do I put my brown wire on and what does the white one go on. Can u help me...

There should be a diagram on the side of the motor showing you where to put the brown and white for 110/220 volt operation. Most new motors of this size are shipped strapped for 220v. The two hot wires will go to L1 and L2 and it doesn't matter which wire goes to which lug. For 220v you will usually have 2 black or 2 red wires and a green ground wire. If it is 110v supply, you will usually have a white and a black wire, and a green for ground. Hope this helps. Since you said you are hooking to 220v the brown and white should be on the correct lugs if this is a new motor.

My pool originally had a 2 speed AO Smith pump motor. Several years back it was replaced with an AO Smith single speed motor. I am replacing that motor with a new AO Smith single speed Centurion Switchless...

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 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.

Hello, Typically your common wire will be white, high speed- black, medium speed- yellow, medium low-blue, red- low. The motor could still run for a short time if it was wired wrong but will either trip a breaker or go off on it;s overload when it's gets hot.

I have a tork 1103 electromechanical switch. its working but wont

T1103 can be wired many ways.
T1103 has 240V clock motor.

You are connecting 240Volt pool pump to timer.
Open link below and see wiring diagram: look at bottom left diagram:

Electricians don't guess, they test.
Turn power off and separate wires for testing.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
Stand on dry boards. Wear dry clothes.
Do not touch anything metal.
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
For 240V circuit, two different wires should light up tester. Working from your description, by code, these wires should be black and red.
Each of these wires is Hot wire.
These are called Line wires, wires going to pump are called Load wires.
Hot wires connect to terminals L and 1. This will power the clock motor and dial will rotate as time passes, assuming clock motor is good.

Hots are identified.
Test one of the hot wires to remaining wire, and not to bare ground.
Tester lights up on Neutral wire. This should be white wire.
Double check that Neutral wire did not light up on bare ground.
Neutral is not connected to any 1103 terminal.

Remaining wires go to Load (pool pump).
By code, assuming Hot Lines are Red and Black, the Red & Black Load wires connect to X terminal and 2 terminal, in either order. One wire on each terminal.
White wire connects to Neutral wire and is covered with wire nut.

Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Help with Woods 59018/59028 7 day digital timer

The usual connection for this type timer is the house black power to the timer black, the house white power to the timer white and the , the light black wire to the red timer wire.
If you only have two wires, one black and one white, at the switch location, then you cannot use this style timer , as it needs a neutral. You should return this timer and get one that does not require a neutral connection.

Please Vote !!

Breaker keeps tripping when turning on pump.

The red and black wires if ran correctly are the load lines(power). The white is neutral or ground. If its a 1/2 to1-1/2 hp motor connect the red and black wires to terminals #1 and #4. If its 2 hp use #1 and #4. If its 3 hp use #2 and #4. Connect the white wire to the green colored screw. A grounding conductor should always be connected under the green grounding screw, which is located within the terminal compartment of the motor. You can check the breaker for the wire colors, one should be black and the other red. The white wire should be terminated to the neutral/ground bar in the can.
