20 Most Recent Hayward 2HP Pool Pump Motor A O Smith Electric Pool Motor for 56J Frame - Page 2 Questions & Answers

if you have indications of a motor problem, you shouldnt need to disconnect it to diagnose. if your pump is higher than the level of the pool, there should be unions both at the front and top so that it will disconnect from the system quickly and water loss is minimal. if your pump is below the level of the pool, there should be valves to stop water flow as well as the unions to remove it from the system. plan B is to describe what you hear\see and let a pro point you in the right direction.

replacing bearings can be tricky, but if you are willing to try most of these motors use 6203 2rs c3 bearings all for the back bearing, the front could be 3 different sizes. after removing them bring the rotor to your local pool pump motor repair shop, and have them remove and replace. about $20.

How do you know that its getting electricity? Did you check the connections on the back of the motor. If you did and the motor is humming then you need a new starting capacitor.

746w = 1 HP so ~560W or 0.56kW

That's the simple answer...the 'real' answer involves motor efficiency / power factor and what load your pump actually presents to the motor. In the end, it will be somewhere around $0.1 an hour or ~$2.40 if ran all day.

The motor is made by A.O. Smith in Tippton, OH. You can try calling them, and with any luck you may get a kind soul that can get you a splsh sheild. It is probably not a part you can purchase from a distributor, but that is an option you can also pursue. Good luck.

If pumps don't prime there is a reason:
Enough water in the pool or spa?
Is the o-ring on the lid at the pump pot?
Is the lid tight enough?
Does the pump need to "Pull" water to the pump from the body of water for a great distance or height? If so, then you need to be diligent in getting the water to the pump.
Or the Pump Shaft Seal is worn.

Wire that is between your power source and the pump, needs to be broken/spliced in, with a switch.

If this is a 240 wired motor/pump then Both "hot" wires need to be broken by the switch. If 120, then it is possible to just break the one hot wire. That will be the (Normally) black wire. But be very careful in this as Electricity is "Color Blind"! It does not care what the wire color is. Checking with a meter is always wise & when working with electricity wires, ensure power breaker shut off switches are in the "Off" position.

I posted the two different types of switches you can get at a hardware store.

Are you sure? Single phase pool motors are not reversible (unless something weird happened that I can't explain). Three phase motors are reversible, but very rare in residential wiring.

Looking directly at the end of the motor shaft (where the impeller goes) it should spin counter- clockwise. Both of the power wires can be attached to either terminal; there is no "polarity".
