Question about Pool & Spa

1 Answer

I need to install a new AOSmith 1 1/2 horse pump for my pool. The to lines that come from the house are both 110 volt. The pool is wired for 230 volt. Will attaching the 110 lines work for the required 230 volts or do I need to readjust the voltage to 115 volts?? How do I readjust?

    When I hooked up the pump and started it, pumped a great flow and was quite. But within an hour the cover became almost to hot to touch. And it then took as longer to cool down as it had run. Is the pump defective?

There is nothing that you can do with respect to the 220 volts vs. 230 volts and fortunately, it does not matter. There is no voltage adjustment that you can do.

The 220 volts comes from TWO DIFFERENT 110 volt lines. Typically, your breaker will handle that correctly for you, be sure that both breakers are bridged, mechanically, so when you turn one off, both go off (prevents electrocution).

A o smith b854 motor schematic diagram 115v . How do I hook up 115v to the factory set 230v?


Remove the back of the pump housing ... inside you will find the 110 volt connection place.

If your pump is on a dedicated line (as it should be) run it on 220 VAC ... To convert your line from 110 to 220 all you need is a double pole breaker of the proper amperage ... take the white wire presently on the ground bus bar and put it on the other side of the new double pole breaker. Then you will have 220 ... and you will save a few bucks on electricity.

Super pumps are very easy. If it is a northstar it is more difficult. Super pump. You will need 1 motor, 1 pump seal, 1 diffuser gasket, 1 housing gasket. turn off breaker, disconnect wires -noting whether it is 110 or 220 volts- , unscrew four bolts on back of pump housing (shaft side of motor), pull out motor with rear housing and diffuser (sometimes diffuser sticks inside), on wire side of motor hold shaft with wrench (flathead in some cases, but it is harder), unscrew impeller counter clockwise (like normal screw - you will nee a big pair of channel locks or a strap wrench), there are two pieces of the back housing and once the impailer is off you can remove the half that is closest to the end of the shaft to reveal four more screws, unscrew those four screws. screw back part of rear housing onto new motor. Install new pump seal to front part of rear housing and impeller, slide on front part of rear housing and then screw on impeller while holding shaft on wire side with wrench (only hand tight), replace housing gasket, replace diffuser gasket, slide into front housing and screw in four bolts. If electrical was 110 you will need to move the jumper on the wire end..if it was 220 then just hook kup wires...doesnt matter which is which as long as green or bare goes to the ground screw.
