I just wired my hot tub into my new house. And GFCI keeps tripping?


Still would go with Miswired.
if this is an auxiliary GFCI Spa Disconnect,
240 VAC, 50 Amp, then...
All of the following needs to be this way:
  • 4 wires from MAIN Circuit panel, into GFCI disconnect box, 2 hots, 1 Neutral, 1 ground
    • 2 hots go onto the disconnects Power Bus Bar for breaker
    • 1 white Nuetral goes to Isolated nuetral bus bar
    • 1 green Ground goes to ground lug directly on the box
  • 1 GFCI in the auxiliary disconnect box
    • The White Pigtail of the GFCI Breaker goes onto the Isolated Nuetral bus bar. There are now two wires there.
  • 4 wires come into box from Spa. (Unless the spa is Specifically a 3 Wire Connection Spa!)
    • 2 Hot/Line wires will go into the L1 & L2 lugs of the breaker respectively.
    • 1 White Nuetral Wire will go into breaker as well at the "Load Nuetral lug, usually marked as 'LN'.
      • It will NOT go on the Isolated Nuetral bus bar.
    • Green Ground wire will be connected to ground lug, 2 wires are now connected there.
  • Connections at spa will be respectively connected: the 2 hots on line 1 and line 2. White wire goes to Nuetralnd green ground will go to a Ground Lug, most likely to metal control box.
If it's not wired in this manner, it is wired WRONG.

How do I wire a Polaris PB4-60 in the USA (115V)?


I am not sure if this will help you out any, but here goes:
Line1 & Line 2 are your Hot Power Wires coming into the motor.
It does not really matter which wire goes to which post of the motor.
This will remain true if you are bringing in 110-115-120 (these are all the same, people just refer to them differently) which also is referred to at times as "Low" voltage, and the same goes for 220-230-240 (again, referred to differently) which is referred to at times as "High" voltage.
Whether bringing in Low voltage or High Voltage, the wires you bring in will number only three:
  • Ground
  • Hot
  • Hot (potentially Hot)
Low Voltage (115) will have:
  • 1 Absolute Hot Wire = Line 1. Normally Black
  • 1 Potentially Hot Wire = Common/Nuetral Line 2, normally White
  • Ground/Earth = Normally Green
High Voltage (220) will have:
  • 1 Absolute Hot Wire - Line 1, Normally will be same color as Line 2 or Black/Red
  • 1 Absolute Hot Wire - Line 2, Normally will be same color as Line 1 or Red/Black
  • Ground - Green
In either of the above voltages, it does not matter which wire goes where, as long as a Hot wire goes onto Line 1 and the other "Hot or Potentially Hot, if 110", goes onto Line 2. Do not put a Hot wire anywhere else and Do Not put a Ground wire on either Line 1 or 2!

Most Motors are coming out of the factory wired for High Voltage Set up (220), so you will have to move some wires or a terminal block, to set the motor to operate at "Low" voltage (115). These motors are "Dual" Voltage, they have the capability to run either 110 or 220. But they don't magically know which voltage is being supplied.

Good Luck

WIRING A COMPATIBLE POOL PUMP[MARATHON 1 H.P.230V


check for 230v not 110 (on line to ground). SO checking L1 and L2 should show 230 v if not you have a fault in the timer or the breaker is toast. depending on the timer you can clean the points

How towire a 220/110 7 wire single phase motor to 2 wire plus ground switch


This is very simple, but you need to make sure you have the correct wires in hand. If you are wiring a 220/110 motor, and you are wiring it for 110 use, you will only be using 3 wires. If this motor has 7 wires, most you will need to cap off.All you need to use are P-1/Line 1 is your 110 hot. Cap off T-4, 2, and 5, Line 2. That would be used for 220 volts. P- 1 will go to your hot wire on press. On the new motor, T-8, P-2, and t-3 you say are insulated? You will need a Neutral wire to tie to the other line wire coming from the press. And the 3rd wire will be your ground. So, P-1 is hot to your press wiring, t-4,2, and 5 capped off. T-8, P-2, and T-3 has to be a Neutral wire, I would think that if T-4,2,and 5 are line -2, this would be for 220 volts. You are being confused by so many wires. You will only need to use P-1 power for 110 to press power wire, find which wires are Neutral and a ground that will go to your press wiring.P-1 will go to Red if this is hot to the press, Black to Neutral, and on the new motor you will see what color is ground, normally green or bare copper. 3 wires only. You will only need the p-1 hot, a neutral, normally white but may be black on the new motor, and a ground. Look at the Diagram on the new motor, and it will tell you the combination. P-1, Neutral, ground, and cap off the other 4 wires. I hope I havent confused you more, it is very simple, its just the colors of the wires the are confusing you and the amount. Just remember, you only need to use 3 of the, P-1, Neutral, and a ground.

Low voltage in 110 recepts. and 110 in 220 outlet, could 100 feed breaker be problem. breaked is 25+ years old


The breaker could be the problem. I take it that you have a meter, you can pull off the panel cover and check the line side of the main breaker ( the side from the power company) be VERY carefull as you cannot turn of the power to this side of the breaker!!! Form one wire to the other on the breaker you should have roughly 220 volts. From one on the breaker to the ground/nuetral bar you should have roughly 110 volts. I f you do not have 220 across the two wires on the breaker its the power company you need to call if the 110 voltage is not right you may have a loose ground/nuetral... Just be VERY CAREFULL!!!! Hope this helps you

You have something along the line that is grounding. One of your wires is going to the wrong place. If you have it wired for 220 v, you have 3 wires going in, or 4, one will be ground, one will be neutral, and 2 will be hot. The connector at the motor should say line 1, line 2, white wire to neutral, and the ground possibly outside. If it is 110 v, it will have only 1 hot wire going in. If it is on a gfi breaker, then it has to be right or it will never stop tripping. The slightest thing wrong and it trips. If it still trips after all that, try it at 110 v and see what happens, It might be the motor at fault.

T101 R Clock will not turn


The "Line" is the power source. The "load" is the device that is being powered.

typically the green wire is the ground wire. I strongly urge you to verify your assumption that is is the common wire. If the green is indeed the ground, and it gets hooked up to common, you will be energizing the cabinet of the unit and posing a serious shock hazzard.

Your curcuit will be as follows.

The power source "Line" will have wires going to the timer. (hooked to the "line" terminals on the timer.)the timer then is supplying the power to the pool pump, and we will reffer to it as the "line".

The two black wires from the pump would be hooked up to the "load" side of the timer.

Typically they would be labled line 1 and line 2 or "L1" and "L2"

If yours are not labled so, describe exactly what terminals you have in detail in both the pump and the timer.

The pump is a three wire single phase. My inputs are two 110 voltlines out of phase, the 110 line ground and the local ground. Who is connected to the motor red wire,yellow wire, green and black


You need to connect the green and black wire to a ground. The other two wires got to the two hot wires from your power. It does not matter which ones are connected as long as the ground is correct.
