SOURCE: Pool pump motor wiring issue
IF THE SCREW ABOVE IS IN THE METAL MOTOR HOUSING IT IS MOST LIKELY THE GROUND. GREEN WIRES ARE ASSOCIATED WITH GROUND IN ALL ELECTRICAL APPLICATIONS. YOU SHOULD BE SAFE IN HOOKING THE GREEN TO THE SCREW. HOPE THIS HELPS, JODY

green to srcew on the motor. this is ground.,
Black on T1
Red on T2
If the rotation is going the wrong way, simply switch the black to T2
Red to T1.
Check this before you couple it to the pump..

O.K. MONIKA READ VERY CAREFULLY!!!!
I DON'T REALLY LIKE TO GIVE 220 VOLT WIRING OVER THE INTERNET,LET ALONE THE PHONE,but I have a good feeling that if you all replaced the seal, you have an understanding of what you are dealing with: 1st make sure all power is disconnected,Breakers too(hey I have to say this so don't take it to heart), now the two black wires are 115 volts each, and the white one is ground, now enough said, the wires going from the source, (pool house,pump room), should be one white,one red, and one green, if this is the case the black and white wires, are the ones to hook up your black wires to, it does not matter (which of your black wires) go to either the red one or black coming from the source, and if your white on the motor is your ground it should goe to the green one coming from your source, if you don't already have them,I SUGGEST, you go to home depot,or lowe's and purchase the BLUE "water tight" wire caps, they can and are a "life saver anytime electrical is used around water, they cost some, but isn't a life worth a buck or two more? remember 115 volts can kill you if your around water 220-248volts will really kill you, so please check and double check all that I have told you. make sure everyone is clear,(pet's too), and flip the breaker, and you should be in business, god bless, happy 4th, and please let me know if I can help more

You have 4 wires coming out of the fuse box , one white , one bare, one black, one red, right? The fuse is a double pole, 220 volt, ?30?amp, guessing, and you are now wiring up to a 110 volt, motor which needs 20 amps, so, remove one wire from the breaker, red or black, shut it off first, pull the wire off, tape it and mark it what it was. leave the red wire on there, or the black, it doesn't matter, Now you have one hot, one ground, one neutral, hook them up to the pump, the box on the pump has screws, one silver, one brass, the brass is always hot, the colored wires are always hot, The silver screw is neutral, the white is neutral, always, and the ground wire goes to the ground screw, maybe outside of the box. You should be all set, tape off the old colored wire you didn't use and mark it . You might need it someday. Hope this helps.
