Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


I take it your cord is 3-wire plus a ground hence the 4 colors? If so you will only need to use white black and green. On the plug you should see a silver colored screw and a copper one; black to the copper and white to the silver. Green to the green screw and the plug is done.

Connect the white and black wires to the motor L1 and L2 terminals. It does not matter which color wire goes to which line terminal as long as only one wire is on each line terminal.

Ground the green to the green post in the motor and be certain you set the motor to 115 if it is a dual voltage unit that can be switched to either incoming line voltage.

Not sure what wires you are talking about. Normally on a 115volt motor you will have L1 and L2 and a green ground screw. Black or red goes to L1 and L2 (either one). White goes to either L1 or L2 (either one) and the green ground to the green ground screw. These would be the incoming voltage wires.

How to wire motor sta rite p2ra5e 181L


The green wire is the ground and bolts onto the motor frame on the top part,(should see a green screw). the other two wires go to the two posts with screws to clamp down on the wires. It does not matter which way these two are hooked up, one on each post.


Most motors are pre-wired for 220v from the factory. If you have 220v you're good to go. If you happen to have a 115v setup the motor will run at half speed. The motor can be converted to 115v by moving a brown wire and a white wire in the motor. The diagram is on the motor label.Best to verify your voltage first.

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.

I wired a new dura-glas pump as a 115, and it popped the breaker. I put the black wire on 1 and the white on 2. Should I have wired it as 230? Should I switch the black and white wires, even though the...


The wire placement does not matter assuming you have a 115 volt supply with a three wire cord/cable and they are comming in as blk=hot, white=neutral and copper=ground.

Tripping a breaker would be from a shorted hot wire so look for a place where it touches the white or ground wires or the metal of the motor. Another cause would be if you really have 230V across the black and white and you connect it to a motor set for 115V. Is the breaker that turns off the circuit in question a signle wide or a double wide breaker. A double wide would be 230V.

Generator electrical


On a 230 volt std hook up here's the way it is supposed to work. From black to white you should get 115 volts. From Red to white you shoudl get 115 volts. From red to black you should get 230 volts.

Concentrate on getting the correct output from the generator with the load to the house disconnected

This should be 115v (black to white, 115 volts red to white and 230 volts red to black.

On the load side (ie, the house connected) what are you using? 115 volt lights, etc on one side of the
230 volts, and some other 115 volt loads on the other side.. Are there any 230 volt loads. It could be
that one side of the 230 volts (ie, a 115 volt side is drawing a lot more current than the 2nd 115 volt leg.

Get back with me on just what the loads are botth 115 volt and 230 volt . also what are the rating on the circuit breakers.
