Question about Sta Rite Sta - Rite 1hp Dura - Glas Inground Pool Pump, P2ra5el

1 Answer

I wired a new dura-glas pump as a 115, and it popped the breaker. I put the black wire on 1 and the white on 2. Should I have wired it as 230? Should I switch the black and white wires, even though the directions seemed to suggest that the placement of the wires didn't matter?

The wire placement does not matter assuming you have a 115 volt supply with a three wire cord/cable and they are comming in as blk=hot, white=neutral and copper=ground.

Tripping a breaker would be from a shorted hot wire so look for a place where it touches the white or ground wires or the metal of the motor. Another cause would be if you really have 230V across the black and white and you connect it to a motor set for 115V. Is the breaker that turns off the circuit in question a signle wide or a double wide breaker. A double wide would be 230V.

I am changing from a Dura/Glas H/L to an emerson1081 2horse

I am assuming the H/L You are talking about actually means that the pump has two speeds? You have an extra hot leg that comes from your timer to the pump or switch (depending on how it is set up) to allow for the second speed to be operated. For the new single speed pump you need only a hot (usually black), neutral (usually white) and ground (usually green). More than likely, you currently have two blacks, a white and a green. For you to wire in the single speed, you just need to abandon the second leg (black) but make sure that you cap it off, because when the second side of the time clock turns on, power will still be going through that leg.
Let me know if I understood your question! Thank you!

Wiring schematic for MTB217 cooper b line

I would suggest taking a closer look at the motor name plate. I am not familiar with a 120/240 three phase service. When I checked the web it shows: Voltage 115/230 (that is single phase), Max Amps 115 Volts = 19.2 Max Amps 230 Volts = 9.6 , Single Speed, Square Flange, RPM = 3450, Threaded Shaft, Frame = 48Y Used on the following models: Sta-Rite Max-E-Glas, Max-E-Glas II, Dura-Glas, Dura-Glas II, Dyna-Glas, Dyna-Max Pentair Whisperflow, Pinnacle and Anthony AR2 Series. You should also show what voltage you are connected to.

Wiring for timer

T101P3 is ordinary 120Volt T101 mechanism inside a beige plastic box.
Rated 40 amp.
Three terminals A 1 2
Very small white wires that power the WG1570 clock motor are connected to terminals A and 1.

White neutral wire from breaker box connects to terminal A
Black Hot wire from breaker connects to terminal 1.
This will power the clock motor, which will switch the timer on-off.
Green ground wire and bare copper wires connect to green ground screw.

115volt motor should have 2 wires.
Connect white wire to terminal A
Connect black wire to terminal B

None of the above. You hook your two line leads (the two hot 115 lines) to L1 and L2 and you hook up the ground to the green screw. Do NOT connect the neutral to the motor.

Contact me thru; we stock the part you need. To ensure you get the correct version it would be helpful if you took a digital picture so you can send it in an email.

To answer your question, yes - you could strip all the wires back and bypass the terminal board but in the long run it will make it much harder to install the part since you will need to put all new terminal ends on including a female pin style that requires a special crimper.

I have a sta rite 1 hp 115/230 motor i cant find where the white wire goes do you have a diagram

I assume you mean the white wire under the rear motor cover? If so Sta-Rite puts a wiring diagram inside this back cover. Hopefully it is still intact for you. Depending on your model and if it is wired for 115vac or 220vac will make a difference. I would suggest you go to the link I attached and look up your manual. The manual will have the wiring diagram for you.

I hope this helps you out. Please rate my response. thanks

Breaker keeps tripping when turning on pump.

The red and black wires if ran correctly are the load lines(power). The white is neutral or ground. If its a 1/2 to1-1/2 hp motor connect the red and black wires to terminals #1 and #4. If its 2 hp use #1 and #4. If its 3 hp use #2 and #4. Connect the white wire to the green colored screw. A grounding conductor should always be connected under the green grounding screw, which is located within the terminal compartment of the motor. You can check the breaker for the wire colors, one should be black and the other red. The white wire should be terminated to the neutral/ground bar in the can.

Pool pump wiring

I DON'T REALLY LIKE TO GIVE 220 VOLT WIRING OVER THE INTERNET,LET ALONE THE PHONE,but I have a good feeling that if you all replaced the seal, you have an understanding of what you are dealing with: 1st make sure all power is disconnected,Breakers too(hey I have to say this so don't take it to heart), now the two black wires are 115 volts each, and the white one is ground, now enough said, the wires going from the source, (pool house,pump room), should be one white,one red, and one green, if this is the case the black and white wires, are the ones to hook up your black wires to, it does not matter (which of your black wires) go to either the red one or black coming from the source, and if your white on the motor is your ground it should goe to the green one coming from your source, if you don't already have them,I SUGGEST, you go to home depot,or lowe's and purchase the BLUE "water tight" wire caps, they can and are a "life saver anytime electrical is used around water, they cost some, but isn't a life worth a buck or two more? remember 115 volts can kill you if your around water 220-248volts will really kill you, so please check and double check all that I have told you. make sure everyone is clear,(pet's too), and flip the breaker, and you should be in business, god bless, happy 4th, and please let me know if I can help more
