Well first did you have an old one you're replacing? Check it. Second you could test your voltage with a tester (best idea then you know for sure). Third, you can look at the circuit breaker in your panel, and if it is a single breaker , it is 125V If it's a double pole breaker (two wide with wide handle) then it's 230V. Usually if it is 230V then the wires coming to it would both be black, or black and red, with a bare or green ground. Usually if it's 115V you'll have one black (hot), one white (neutral) and one bare or green(ground) but at times someone will wire one 230 with black and white. There should also be a large bonding copper jumper connected to a lug on the outside of the motor to bond your system to the pool (NOT AN EQUIPMENT GROUND)

I have a 5 month old ao motor that the shop tells me has a ground fault. The company i bought it from does not want to warranty it. The motor runs when power is applied except when ground is attached. ...


The short answer is yes, but the longer version includes an explanation about the cost to do so being higher than the cost of a motor. You should contact AOSmith and ask for a local motor warranty station which is almost always an electric motor repair shop. They should be able to get you a replacement motor under warranty as the places that sell the pumps are not usually able to warranty the motor in the first place.

For help locating the shop try: AOSmith locator

Can you please tell me the correct wiring for a Hayward 120V pool pump (not 240V) Thank you


Follow diagram on the tag. typically low voltage and high voltage volt are diagramed on the tag. Most manufactures send pumps out already for 220. the A and B terminals are for pump wires. and the lines are for the power cord. follow the diagram and you can't go wrong;

How do I replace the capatitor on my 1HP pool pump motor. I have the new part but cannot tell which of the three wires attaches to which terminal.


Please use or contact page feature at www.arrowmotor.net and include your motor model and serial number. I can try to get you the connection diagram. If by chance you have the 2 yellow, one red wire combination, the two yellow go together on either set of posts and the red goes alone on the other set of posts. There is no polarity to a capacitor so it does not matter which set is which, just what wires you pair together.
