    If you turn the motor on and spin the shaft with your fingers , will it take off , or stop and just buzz?

WD40 IS A WATER DISPERSANT AND WILL CAUSE MORE DAMAGE THAN GOOD ,IT WASHES AWAY OIL AND GREASE.. YOU MUST HAVE THE START SWITCH SET ,IT SHOULD BE CLOSED FOR START AND OPEN WHEN RUNNING.. NEW BEARINGS ARE THE ONLY GOOD FIX . YOU CAN TAKE THE BEARING IN YOUR HAND AT A SLIGHT ANGLE AND SPIN THE ROTOR, YOU CAN FEEL ANY BEARING DAMAGE THREW YOUR HAND I'M YOUR LOCAL POOL PUMP REPAIR GUY IN LONGWOOD FLORIDA.

My motor has black, white, and brown wires coming out of it. I had sketched the connections but left it out in the rain and now don't know how to hook it up.


Are these the wires that come from a power source to the motor?
Which are called Line wires.
if these are Not Line wires, then they are the motors internal wires, and you could be out of luck? You will need the manufacturers wiring diagram.
If they are Line wires, then simply... Get a multimeter, turn power on, and test each wire to ground. This will tell you if and which each wires is line/hot or not.

Just replaced a Hayward 2hp pool motor with a OA Smith 2hp pool motor and when i turned it on it starts to switch between high and low and it shuts off. the motor makes a tic tic sound. What do you think...


Hello
No there is no switch in the motor.Correct voltage is done by hooking up incoming power to a combination of internal wires or contacts.

There should be a wiring diagram on the cover where the hookup is.Or on the outside case of the motor.
The high and low speed doesnt make sence to me.Check the rpm of the motor it should be one rpm continueous.
Unless this is a Hvac motor and not a pool pump motor.Possible you may have been sold the wrong motor.
Usually a pool pump is 115 volts 1 speed and 1 rpm continuos duty.Unless you specify 230 volts.
