Question about Hayward 2HP Pool Pump Motor A O Smith Electric Pool Motor for 56J Frame

Open Question

I am looking for a parts diagram for an A.O. Smith pool pump motor model sp3220z1be.

This is off of a Hayward Tristar 2HP pool pump. I am replacing the bearings and when I opened it there is a plastic piece that is not listed in the generic parts list for the other A.O. Smith motors. It looks like it is to prevent someone from poking their fingers into housing on the running motor. It is not a cooling fan and mounted directly to front of the housing inside the motor.

SOURCE: 1/2hp Hayward Pump for existing inground pool

you will be fine with the 1/2hp. The Hayward will move quite a bit of water as well. It may not move as much water as the 3/4hp but it's very close and the 1/2hp will cost a little less to operate so if anything, you may just have to run it for one additional hour per day to compensate. You will be surprised how much water a 1/2hp will move. The only issue with smaller pumps is if you have pop-up cleaner heads or a suction driven automatic cleaner such as a kreepy krauly, however, if a 3/4hp will run it, a 1/2hp will run it as well. You can install a larger motor on the super pump but it will not move more water unless you upgrade the impeller as well. Just make sure you don't use a bigger impeller than what the motor is rated for because it will strain the motor and cause it to overheat. Hope this helps.

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.

Bearings for electric motor


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.

My 2hp hayward super pump is just out of warranty and has begun leaking. It also has a high pitched whine which comes and goes. Does that mean waters gotten into the bearing and if so can I replace it?...


Yes, water may have entered into the motor, mainly into the front motor bearing, where it washed away the lubrication. This will only make the noise louder and will need to replace the bearing. otherwise it will eventually seize and no longer work.
