It depends on how many amps the motor is. #14 wire will handle up to 7 amps at 100 feet. If it is less than 7 amps it should be okay. If the wire gets very warm after running then you may have to go with #12.

How to covert a 220 motor to a 115vac motor. ao smith rpm3450 3.hp 15 amps


If your label looks like this one and or if your label dose not have 120 as one of the voltages then you can not run the motor on 115 volts.

They will have wiring information for each of their products.

The wiring diagram should appear on side of unit.
This 1.5 Hp motor can be wired for 115 or 230 volts

My AO Smith manual would not be specific to your motor.
With AO Smith 115-230V, there are one set of wiring terminals for incoming wires from breaker box. The other wires connect to terminals.
Copy following illustration link:

Wire and breaker size:
For 120Volt, use 20 amp breaker and 12 gauge wire up to 25 feet.
Over 25 feet up to 100 feet, use 30 amp breaker and 10 gauge wire.
100-150 feet use 8 gauge wire and 40 amp breaker.
150-200 feet use 6 gauge wire and 50 Amp breaker.

I'm installing a 8NE-L , 1HP pump . How far can I run my 12/2 wire for 110 volt application?


The FLA (Full Load Amps) for a 1 HP single phase motor is 16 amps at 115 volts. 5% is the maximum allowable volt drop from the main electric panel to the pump per NEC (National Electric Code). When these values are plugged into the volt drop formula, such as this one:
http://www.nooutage.com/vdrop.htm
90 feet is the maximum allowable distance for a #12 copper rated at 75 degrees C.

I burned up a 1 1/2 Super Pump. I see it was originally wired for 120 and am wondering if I should wire it for 230 with my new pump. What are the advantages/disadvantages of 230 vs 120v.


120 volt carries a higher amperage through the circuit, while 220 carries a lower amperage through the circuit. Safety and wiring sizes come into play here. 230 will always be better over 120 for the above reasons, and also for the fact that it is more cost effective on your electrical bill.

wire your circuit and your pump for 220volt if possible. Only use 120 volts if you have to do it and theres no other options.

Have 2 black wires n 1 green is this 115 0r 220 volts n where do wires go l1 or l2


The TWO Black Wires are Phase and neutral and it's irrelevant which way they go on the motor, the Other is the earth and that MUST connect to the case.
Black, L1 & L2 the other green EARTH.
115 or 120 doesn't matter

Am I able to step this motor down to 115 ? Plate specifies 230V.only


it depends on how many motor wires you have available to work with .. IF the name plate says 220 volts , not 120 / 220 volts , then no. If there are only 2 wires for the motor, then NO

thoughts?

Flotec 1/2 hp pump won't run. 124v line voltage. But L1 to L2 shows -00.1 to -00.4 Power supply line is 12/2 to a on/off switch and 14/2 to pump from switch. Distance to service is less than 100 feet


With your volt meter, check the voltage at the circuit breaker or fuse to the neutral bar. If you have 120 volts there, then go to the switch and check the 12/2 hot wire to the neutral wire, if you have 120 volts, then check the 14/2 hot wire on the switch to the neutral wire.

if you have voltage going into the switch and existing the switch, then check all the connections between the switch and the pump.

When you're testing for voltage, do not test the hot wire to ground. You have to make sure that the neutral wire is not broken someplace in the circuit
