There shopuld be a diagram on the nameplate of the motor, or on the cover for the wiring compartment, or there is some stamped indication at the wiring lugs that tell you where to put your feed and what position the internal wires are to be in or the jumper .. for 110 volts or 220 volts.

Next, as a suggestion. Purchase an Emerson Pool motor. The electrical connection is the same for 110/220 volts. All you have to do is move the switch by the electrical connections and select 110 or 220 volts. They usually come preset on 220 but I would check anyway. Also, don't forget the ground wire (green) and also connecting the bonding wire on the outside of the motor near the plastic cover for wiring. If you don't have bonding I would get it real soon! Hope this helps..

Low voltage and hi voltage is just 220 and 110 can i still make the pump have two speeds

The 220v / 110v are the two wiring options on that motor. They usually come pre- wired for 220. The wiring can be changed to where it will run on 110. Be sure to get it right. if you wire a 110v motor to 220v it will go bang and die.
A two speed motor will have two hot wires, one common, and one ground (4 wires). Single speed will have three wires. You can't make a single speed motor a two speed motor.

What is the difference between 115volts and 230volts pumps?

Effectively, not much, although 220 v is preferred for pool pumps over 1.5 HP (it's a bit more efficient). The smaller pumps may be able to run on 220v or 110v. There should be a wiring diagram on the side of the motor giving details.

Does the pump come with the wiring set up for high voltage? I am referring to the brown and white internal wires. Pentair Challenger 346206. thank you

If you look at the wiring diagram on the motor plate it will show you where these wires go for 220v power, and where they go for 110v Power. If you know the supply voltage just place these wires as shown on the diagram and you should be fine.

Pool pump does not start

Well, this could be caused by several different problems. The first step would be to make sure the breakers are not in a half-trip condition in the breaker panel. You should turn the breakers off and snap them back on. If the breakers are OK, you need to check and see if you have the proper voltage coming into and out of the time clock. Some pumps run on 110v and some on 220v. The proper voltage can usually be determined by the type breakers. Single Pole is 110v, Double Pole would be 220v. You would need a meter to test the voltage at the time clock. If you have the proper voltage, you next need to make sure the shaft is spinning freely by trying to turn the impeller with your finger. If this is free, you may have a blown start capacitor on the motor itself. Hope this helps.

You are fine with your 110VAC. Manufactures generally express the operating voltage of appliances with the median between what household voltages are usually expressed in I.E. 110/220 to 120/240

The only time this could be a problem is if you lived in another country that uses 50Hz Mains instead of 60Hz. I assume you live in the US so you will be fine.

Ghart106 asked:

There is a wire diagram on the inside or outside of the motor housing. There is a simple wiring switch that you can do to change the motor from 110 to 220 or vice-versa. Everything you need to know is on the motor.
