How do I wire up a A.O. Smith 3/4hp PB4 Booster Pump for 230V operation?


Here's some more info diagrams for you http://www.electricmotorwarehouse.com/aosmith/AO_CONNECT.PDF L1 is one hot wire L2 is the other hot wire. L1 can not be connected to a L2 wire and L2 can not be connected to a L1. Ground only to ground.

I have old spa motor with Red - low speed, Black - High speed, White - Neutral, Green - ground. New Dayton 5PXG3 motor has only L1, L2 and ground. How do you wire that?


The motor should work if you connect the black wire to L1, white wire to L2 and green wire to ground. The red wire should be cut so the conductor does not extend past the insulation and the end wrapped with electrical tape.This should be correct if the motor is a 120 VAC motor. If the motor is a 240 VAC motor then the white wire is not really neutral. It should be wrapped in both the motor wiring area with black electrical tape and the other end in the timer should also be wrapped with black tape.

If this causes a problem because you now have no low speed for the spa then the only way to get the low speed is to squire a 2 speed motor.

I hope this helps.

Wiring a 230v ao smith pump : L1 and L2 connection


Hi, assuming you have 4-conductor wire, use the black and red wires for L1 and L2. It doesn't matter which goes to which. If you do not have a red wire, use black and white. The green or bare wire in a 3-wire cable goes to the ground. If you have 4-conductor wire, the ground wire is the one you used for the GFCI on the breaker--usually the white wire. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Is it going to run on 230V then? If so you would normally use red and black. The white wire should be a neutral and the ground wire is obviously ground.

Do you have a meter you can use to confirm the voltage between the wires? If you do you'll want to start with red and white since you seem to think black was not being used before. If the voltage reads 230 and the motor is set up for 230 then attach one wire to L1 and the other to L2...it will not matter which is connected where as long as one is on each terminal. Insulate the black and ground the ground lead to the motor ground screw.

If the voltage is not 230 between those two check between red and black. If that is the 230 then insulate white and put red and black to L1 and L2.

Need to know how to put the wires in the right order on a AO Smith 5.0 56 spa pump red white and black


Red and Black should each be connected to the individual power legs, for 230 V operation. The white wire should be connected to ground.

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.
