I need a wiring diagram for hayward pool filter model K48m2n11b3


Are you trying to wire a pool pump?
I found manuals at the Haywood site > I saw nothing for K48m2n11b or anything close to that number
http://www.haywardnet.com/inground/products/manuals.cfm

But lets work on the problem and see if I can give you some help:

After opening a few manual and searching for the word 'volt' and 'pump' ... each manual talks about 'pumps' generically, as if the pump is a separate purchase item.

Lower down on the manual page they have a list of pool pumps. A search for the word 'volt' inside the pump manuals says 'match supply voltage to motor nameplate voltage.'

As you know, each electric device has a label showing voltage, wattage, etc. Your pump should show 120Volts or 240V. I didn't see any mention of 3 phase wiring, so I assume your Haywood pump runs on typical residential wiring? And that you are not using 440Volt or 3 phase.

The 120Volt pump will have a black, white and bare ground.
The 240Volt pump will probably have a black, white, red and bare ground
The 240Volt pump could have a black white and bare ground

First the 120V pump:
The 120Volt line from your breaker box will have a black Hot wire, white Neutral wire and bare ground >>> this wire connects color-to-color with pool pump

Next the 240V pump with black, white, red and bare ground
a) The 240Volt line from your breaker box can have the same 4 wires, in which case they connect color-to-color
b) The 240Volt line from your breaker box could have a black white and bare ground, in which case the black goes to black, the white goes to red, the bare coppers are connected, the white pump wire is capped off and not used. If pump does not operate with this wiring, another line from the breaker with wires that match pump might be necessary.

The 240V pump with black white and bare ground
a) The 240Volt line from breaker can have black, white, red and bare ground, in which case the black goes to black, the red goes to white, bare grounds are connected, the white wire is capped off
b) The 240Volt line from from breaker can have black white and bare ground, and this connects color-to-color to the pump

HOW do you know if line from breaker is 120V or 240V?
If you know which breaker wire is connected to, then it's easy
If you do not know which breaker
-turn off power
-separate wires so they can be tested
-use ordinary tester
-stand on dry boards
-tape tester leads to sticks so hands are away from power

-turn on power
-test each wire to bare copper
-tester lights up on Hot wire
-120V line will have 1 Hot wire
-240V line will have 2 Hot wires

Hi ! I have a Kenmore central vacuum (model # 34326), 3 inlet valves on different floors. the inlet valves on the second and third floors are already connected. I need to connect the inlet valve...


By your description it seems that You have telephone wire used. You only need two low voltage wires to complete the circuit to turn on the power to the central vacuum unit. The low voltage wires must be arranged so that when you insert the hose into any valve it closes the circuit. You will wire it as if the black and red are just one wire and the green and yellow are the other, they are actually doing exactly the same as if you only had two wires.

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.

Bought a hunter remote and can't figure out what wires to connect


The remote red wire should go to the black wire that goes to the light. The remote black wire should go to the black or black with white stripe wire to the fan. The white wire should go to both white wires from the light and fan.

The power in (black and white) should be connected to your power source black and white. Bare copper wire to ground on fixture

Wiring Hayward pool pump


John what you have is a 240 volt motor on that pump. It will not connect to a 120 volt cord. You'll have to get a different pump.

The black wire coming from the power cord connects to one side of the switch and the other black and the red wire go to the other side of the switch.

Front panel wiring


Hi, Maybe we can wing it if you can send an image of the motherboard closeup on the F_PANEL connections and the wires from the front panel itself, or get the specific motherboard model during POST so we can try getting URL of manual. In some instances, the front panel wires are: Green wire, power on green light +, white wire is power on green light -; Red & Black, speaker; Red & white - HDD red activity light indicator where red is HDD + & white is HDD -; Orange & white - Reset Black & White - power on Post back so we can figure things out. Good luck and kind regards.
