Question about Pool & Spa

1 Answer

Need a replacement start/run capacitor for a C56A31B17 AO Smith 3/4 HP 1725 RPM 110 V boat lift motor.

Century/Regal (which now owns AO Smith) has been giving me the run-around, says it's an OEM part, I guess they'd rather sell another motor instead of allowing me to repair it by putting in a new capacitor.

Motor just hums when boat lift switch turned up or down


This is usually caused when the motor sits awhile w/o being used. Remove the rear cover with a flat blade screwdriver or 1/4" nut driver. using a flat screwdriver, spin the armature clockwise. this should fix it. If you cannot spin it, the motor should be replaced.

Pool Pump Runs Intermittently (~10 seconds on, ~1 minute off)


Need more info. What is the voltage at the pump? What voltage is the pump wired for? Sounds like your pump is shutting down from heat thru a safety. If the voltage is wrong the pump will heat up very quickly and a thermal switch will cut out, it will then cool off and try again. Get the readings at the motor connections NOT the breaker.

Wiring diagram 3/4 hp boat lift motor


It will be dependent upon the line voltage and switching mechanism...

Please advise drum switch or relays?
115V or 230V
Remote control present?

If a drum switch, is it a 6 or 12 terminal model or some other configuration?
Make and model of the switch?

There may be more questions depending on the answers to these...do you have a wiring diagram for the control? Are you replacing a motor and have the old and new motor schematics?

You didn't indicate exactly what AO Smith motor model you have, but most likely it's Capacitor start/run if it doesn't have a switch. The important thing is to replace with the same MFD as the old so you have the same starting characteristics.
