What brand motor?
what model, code, catalog number?
there should be a diagram either on the side of the motor or in the back, on the cover that exposes the wire connections. Sometimes it is placed behind the rubber insulating gasket, so just carefully peel it away from the cover to possibly expose it. But... You can only change incoming voltage, IF it is a Dual Voltage capable motor? Some are only one or the other, and some are Dual voltage style.

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.

Hi Eglenni,

Here are the specs for your pump:

Thermoplastic Shallow Well Jet Pump 3/4 HP. This new revision of an "old hand" provides good pressure pumping from wells where the depth-to-water is 25' or less.

BODY CONSTRUCTION: Thermoplastic
HORSEPOWER: 3/4
MAXIMUM CAPACITY: 12 GPM
FLOW at 10' LIFT and 40 PSI: 9.7 GPM
MAX LIFT: 25'
MAXIMUM PRESSURE: 78 psi
PRESSURE SWITCH SETTING: 30/50
SUCTION PIPE SIZE: 1-1/4" NPT
DISCHARGE PIPE SIZE: 1" NPT
AMP DRAW (full load): 6.1 amps on 230v / 12.2 amps on 115v
VOLTAGE: 230v / 115v, 60 Hz
RECOMMENDED BREAKER: 15 amp on 230v / 20 amp on 115v
MAXIMUM WATER TEMPERATURE: 140 °F (60 °C)
=========================================
Note that this pump can be operated at 115 volts or 230 volts (A/C) It may have come wired for 230 volt use from the vendor.

Make sure the pump is piped correctly.


There should be a wiring diagram either on the pump or in the literature so you can check to see how the pump is wired.

MAKE SURE
you have the pump wired for 115 volt use in your case. Also make sure the wire size is #12 awg for the power wiring.
Make sure all connections are tight. If you have an amprobe (an instrument that measures electric current) you can check to see how many amps the pump is pulling when it runs.

You said your old pump was 1 HP. This Flotec pump is 3/4 horse so there could be some pump performance loss depending on the well depth and length of the piping runs.

Here's the link to the website for the pump. There are additional resources available on the website:

Just replaced a Hayward 2hp pool motor with a OA Smith 2hp pool motor and when i turned it on it starts to switch between high and low and it shuts off. the motor makes a tic tic sound. What do you think...


Hello
No there is no switch in the motor.Correct voltage is done by hooking up incoming power to a combination of internal wires or contacts.

There should be a wiring diagram on the cover where the hookup is.Or on the outside case of the motor.
The high and low speed doesnt make sence to me.Check the rpm of the motor it should be one rpm continueous.
Unless this is a Hvac motor and not a pool pump motor.Possible you may have been sold the wrong motor.
Usually a pool pump is 115 volts 1 speed and 1 rpm continuos duty.Unless you specify 230 volts.

How do I set the Waterway Champion Pump for 115 Volts? I have the same problem, just installed and it runs for a bit then shuts off. It was mentioned that the pump is usually set for 230, so how do I set...


The voltage is not optional. What voltage are you plugging the pump into?
If you are plugging it into 115, the pump must be set for 115.
If you are plugging it into 230, the pump must be set for 230.
Usually there is a wiring diagram on the label on the pump body or if you remove the end cover, there may be instructions there. There may even be a switch or terminal that states 115 volts and another that states 230 volts.

I need a wiring diagram for a farm duty 6k714k


It is generally located on the nameplate of the motor or inside the wiring housing where the outside power is brought in. These motors are usually convertible from 115 to 230 volt by merely switching a couple of wiring connections inside the wiring housing. If you can do so, 230 volt operation is much preferred due to the high speed start-up available and you can use wiring 1/2 the size required for 115 volt operation. Good luck!
