Question about Hayward 1.5hp Pool Pump Motor Motor A O Smith Electric Pool Motor for 56j Frame Motors Ust1152

Open Question

I have an A.O. Smith UST 1152, 1.5HP pump motor that I removed for the winter. Before I reconnected the wires I noticed 2 wires at the bottom of the white plastic piece where you change from 115 to 230V were off. One wire is white with a black line and the other is black. Which goes where? The motor is running hot but not shutting off. Would placement of wires matter? Does this have anything to do with it running hot?

SOURCE: got a waterway 1.5 hp 1 speed 115/230v, wired 115 need 230

Is there a coverplate where the wires come out of the pump? If so, remove the plate and there should be a wiring diagram inside.
Good Luck

SOURCE: Wiring Hayward pool pump

John what you have is a 240 volt motor on that pump. It will not connect to a 120 volt cord. You'll have to get a different pump.

SOURCE: Wiring difficulties during hookup

The side of the motor will have a diagram showing how to connect the wires for common high and low speeds. There should also be a voltage selector device on near the terminals you connect your line wires to. Set that device to the 115 setting and you should be all set.

SOURCE: I am replacing my Hayward 1 HP superpump. The old

It will not matter where you put the hot and neautral as long as one goes on line 1 and the other on line 2. Just be sure to reset the voltage indicator to read the 115V like before and your all set.

SOURCE: where can I get a guide for rebuilding my ao smith

You won't find one and rebuilding a motor of that nature would be a waste. For starters, once they fail to the point you notice they need atention it is usually to late. Parts are not going to be available and the cost of the replacement is so low it just doesn't make sense to try. A replacement motor is only about $130. If you would like a formal quote or to order one, contact us at and include the model number (326p203) in your message.

How do i disconnect the motor from the pump

There are for bolts that hold the motor to the pump housing. I believe they are 1/2 or 9/16 inch stainless. Make sure you disconnet the power cord and the bonding wire before you start. Make double sure you reconnect the bonding wire when you reinstall the motor.
