SOURCE: What wire do I hook up I have a green to go to

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

It doesn't matter which line connects to which line terminal. Put white and black on L1 and L2, It won't matter which one is on either terminal. Green of course goes to the ground screw.

If this is a new motor you purchased, it should indicate whether it's 110v, or 220v. Also the sticker on the motor should show wiring for 110, and/or 220v. when you remove the cap on the back of the motor it will usually have a little plug, or switch that allows you to change from 110 to 220. Older motors you had remove wire nuts and swap wires. L1 vs L2 don't really matter as long as your voltage is correct if it's 110, then you got 1 hot and 1 neutral. Neutral should be white, and Hot should be black, Red, or possible blue or purple. If you got 220V then you have 2 hot wires and no neutral. If you can't tell the current voltage by looking at the sticker and the wires in the back of the motor, and the documentation that came with it, then you should go back to where you got it and make sure. A local motor shop will also probably check it and tell you for free. Now you mentioned grey and pink wires. If your referring to the wires coming from your supply and not the old motor, then I assume they are white and black (or maybe blue or purple) and are discolored from age and heat. the colors of the wires inside the motor can vary from motor to motor, so you need to follow the sticker on the side.

SOURCE: Im hooking my pool pump

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.

Hi, assuming you have 4-conductor wire, use the black and red wires for L1 and L2. It doesn't matter which goes to which. If you do not have a red wire, use black and white. The green or bare wire in a 3-wire cable goes to the ground. If you have 4-conductor wire, the ground wire is the one you used for the GFCI on the breaker--usually the white wire. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: I have old spa motor

The motor should work if you connect the black wire to L1, white wire to L2 and green wire to ground. The red wire should be cut so the conductor does not extend past the insulation and the end wrapped with electrical tape.This should be correct if the motor is a 120 VAC motor. If the motor is a 240 VAC motor then the white wire is not really neutral. It should be wrapped in both the motor wiring area with black electrical tape and the other end in the timer should also be wrapped with black tape.

If this causes a problem because you now have no low speed for the spa then the only way to get the low speed is to squire a 2 speed motor.

I hope this helps.

Not sure what wires you are talking about. Normally on a 115volt motor you will have L1 and L2 and a green ground screw. Black or red goes to L1 and L2 (either one). White goes to either L1 or L2 (either one) and the green ground to the green ground screw. These would be the incoming voltage wires.

I disconnected the pump and need to know where the red black aND WHITE wires go


Hi, this is John the Hayward tech. You say the wire colors are Red, Black and White. Does not seem that the wires colors were correct from the start. Not knowing your voltage let me clarify some things. Normally if you have 115volts coming into the pump you wire colors should be Red or Black to L1 White to L2 and a green ground to the green ground screw. If you have 230volts coming into the pump the two hot leads are normally red and black with a green ground. The red and black wires go to L1 and L2 does not matter red or black. The green goes to the green ground screw.
