More often than not red is high and black is low. The white is the common and of course green is ground. If High and low are backwards, swap the red and black.

If you have a two speed motor, then you must have black wired to H or high, red wired to L or low, neutral(white) to N , green to ground. Some pool and spa 2 speed motors are the same except the Neutral is wired to the line or L1

Replacing Pool pump motor


Which control panel?
White can be Com, and Black Lo, and Red/Blue Hi
But this is guessing without knowing control panel wiring.

For example T106 timer. Wires can be any color.

High connects to terminal 4
Low connects to terminal 1
Com connects to terminal A

Replaced Single Speed Pool Pump Motor with 2-Speed Motor


You will need a two speed time clock to really take advantage of real energy efficiency savings. Intermatic makes one that fits in place of the original t104 time clock. You will need to run an additional wire to the pump as well. You will have the ground. Then one common wire that is always hot whether or not you are on high speed or low speed. You could make this a white wire. Then a black wire for your high speed that is energized in high speed and a red wire for the low speed. It is important that the high and low speeds not be energized at the same time, otherwise you will hear a very unpleasant sound coming from the motor, and failure and shortened life of the motor will be realized.

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.

Need to know where wire that comes from controls on hot tub connect to pump at?


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

Assuming you have a standard white, black red, green cordset, green to ground, white to common, red to high and black to low. If the speeds are ‘reversed’, interchange the red and black leads. You likely have an AOSmith motor which will be labeled 1, 2, ¾ on the terminal board. 1 is common, 2 is high and ¾ is low.

The side of the motor will have a wiring diagram for how to connect the common, low and high speed leads. Your wire harness should have a white (common), black (usually low), red (usually high) and green (ground) wire. If high and low are backwards, switch the black and red leads.

Motor Wiring
Old Motor
Brown wire is Start
Yellow wire is run or Power
Black wire is High Speed or Common
The other two taps are speed taps, but you have a single speed application
And high speed is what you need ,that’s why there’s not any wires
on Red and Blue if high speed was to much then you would move the
Black wire to one of the other taps RED low speed or Blue Medinm speed
New Motor
White goes to the Yellow wire from the capacitor
Black goes to the Black wire you took off of high speed on old motor
Of course both Brown wires go to the capacitor and Green to ground
If a capacitor doesn’t discharge it doesn’t mean it’s bad
but the capacitors don’t last as long as they used.
Any time you put in a new motor always replace the capacitor
It will save you a lot of time and grief later on.
