Question about AO Smith 1 1/2 HP 115/230V 56C Replacement Motor
There are many different types of motors. you should have a diagram on the inside of the wiring compartment cover. This is a dayton diagram, but I can't be sure it is the same as the motor you have.Notice line terminals remain the same, but that the internal wires change terminals.
