You have to go by the name plate connection for correct voltage and two speed operation. Check name plate and verify incoming voltage. Connect motor accordingly.

How to wire a intermatic pe153 neutral and ground wire. I only see a lug for the hot wire. Where does a neutral and a ground connected to the pe153 timer?

Neutral is common to the neutral motor terminal. The hot wire (line) goes to the other motor (timer) terminal. Your pump is connected to the "Load" terminal.

If your motor is running on 220 ... you will need a 220 timer switch and there will be two 'load' and two 'line' terminals. In the case of 220 ...there is no neutral. Ground goes to the case ... if it is metal. Otherwise, just continue the ground to the motor ... You will also of course, have to bind the motor using the bond terminal to connect to the pool bonding system.

I am installing a new pump and motor. the motor is 110/220 optional. I am 220. The connectors are A, B, L1 and L2. What goes where for 220. Thanks

There is always a wiring diagram on the side of the motor. If you want help with this one still, you would have to list here the exact model of pump, and the model of the motor connected to it.
Most common connections are to run one hot line to L1 and one hot line to L2.
You would want to confirm this on the motor housing though as some motors are different than others.

Pool pump turns off after 1/2 hour or so but I can turn on manually after it sits for a while. Timer is working fine. Hayward Super II around 5 yrs old. Do I need to replace this motor? This problem just...

Your pump is protected by a thermal device that shuts it off when over heated. Are you running 110 or 220? In my experience, your pump will run cooler on 220 ... consider coverting if appropriate.

How to install hayward motor?

Just the motor? Three things you must consider: There are 4 bolts that fasten the motor to the pump housing. You need to determine 110 Volts or 220 volts - 220 will run the pump more efficiently. Bonding. Your motor must be bonded to all other metal parts of your pool system.

Need to connect 220 pool motor to timer

You will need a double pole intermatic or similar switch. You actually want to control the plug where you plug your pump into, not the motor directly. The timer will probably run on 110 but may be a 220 clock. Ask where you purchase the device.

A o smith b854 motor schematic diagram 115v . How do I hook up 115v to the factory set 230v?

Remove the back of the pump housing ... inside you will find the 110 volt connection place.

If your pump is on a dedicated line (as it should be) run it on 220 VAC ... To convert your line from 110 to 220 all you need is a double pole breaker of the proper amperage ... take the white wire presently on the ground bus bar and put it on the other side of the new double pole breaker. Then you will have 220 ... and you will save a few bucks on electricity.

Hello i hooked up a t104 timer to a 220 pool pump i have 3 wires going to timer 2 hots and a ground the pump works correctly when timer is switched to manual but timer does not work can you please advise...

I assume it's an Intermatic T104. I believe this has a 230V motor, which is best for your application. Since you only have 2 hots and a ground I assume you're only switching one leg to the motor. That's why the timer won't run. It need 240V to run the motor. You need 5 wires. Two "hots" coming in, and two going out to the motor along with your equipment grounding conductior (green). This will disconnet all power to the pump when off. Pay attention that you put the two incoming leads on correct terminals which I believe is #1 and #3. That's because those terminals also power the clock. Then connect the motor to #2 and #4 which go to the motor. 1 closes to 2 and 3 closes to 4. The equipment grounding conductor connects to the GR terminal (Green)

How do you get the SP3015X20AZ set up for 115v use? How do I hook it up? Thank you Rita

You will have to change the power on your breaker ... take the white off and put it to the neutral bus. This will change the power beig delivered to the pump. In the motor, remove the white wire and put it on L1 ... black should already be on L1.

A side note ... 220 runs more efficiently and your motor will run cooler and at less expense. I suggest you not change it unless there is good reason.
