Question about Pool & Spa
Putting together old tables saw. Motor is new but not connected. I have a green (Ground), a white and black wire coming from switch to the motor. The motor has a Red, Yellow and Brown bayonet contacts. The motor reads for 120 volts, L1 Red, L2 Yellow, L3 Brown. For 240 it reads L1 Yellow, L2 Brown, L3 Red. Where do I connect my black and white wire?
L1 L2 are the common or line,cord color doesn't mater, green is ground. also should be the ones with screws. try powering the motor for just a few second 2-3 at the most, if it snaps right to life you got it, if it starts slow or not at all, immediately shut it off and check the wiring again. pictures help us fixya guy help u better. there is thousands of different motors

have we spoke before in previous post?
the red can go to any 12v live peramanent such as wire to clock or other item that has power with ignition off and the same with the yellow if your putting these to the same permanent live say from clock you can join these to together red/yellow to red on clock
the black can go to any metal or neg wire.
This should then have your device working the only problem im looking at for you now is the pink wire as this stops you using the device whilst driving as it goes to handbrake but i need to find out if its live or negative.
You could just wire the red/yellow to live and black to earth then see if it switches on and works if not then let me know and ill see about the pink wire ok
Makes sure you use inline fuses on the live wires so as not to short the device out.
Make sure you know what is permanent live to put the yellow/red wire to.
It doesnt need to be ignition it only says this so you cant use it with ignition off but you can wire it into any live feed from clock or switches so its up to you what to wire it to its just the pink wire im concerned about.
PINK: does it tell you to put it to live or earth on handbrake switch?
let me know ok

SOURCE: I am replacing the a/c
Brown wire is Start
Yellow wire is run or Power
Black wire is High Speed or Common
The other two taps are speed taps, but you have a single speed application
And high speed is what you need ,that’s why there’s not any wires
on Red and Blue if high speed was to much then you would move the
Black wire to one of the other taps RED low speed or Blue Medinm speed
White goes to the Yellow wire from the capacitor
Black goes to the Black wire you took off of high speed on old motor
Of course both Brown wires go to the capacitor and Green to ground
If a capacitor doesn’t discharge it doesn’t mean it’s bad
but the capacitors don’t last as long as they used.
Any time you put in a new motor always replace the capacitor
It will save you a lot of time and grief later on.

If you put the tester on the white wire and ground and you read 120V, AND you put the tester on the black and ground and you also read 120V- you have 240 V. I don't know what tester you're using, but you should be reading 240V with the tester connected to the black and white wires. Also, to confirm if this circuit is 240V, look to see if the circuit breaker is a double breaker (two breaker switches connected to each other, so when you turn the breaker off, the two switches turn off together)
Does the motor operate on 240V? there should be directions/diagram on the motor housing where the wires hook up. Look on the cover inside, or in the user manual to see if you can hook the pump up to 240V.
Just as a side note - If this circuit is ,in fact, 240V, the white wire insulation should really be covered over with either black or red electrical tape, to identify it as a hot wire.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

Find the Hot wire:
Your switch has 2 wires. One of these wires is Hot, and one goes to load. Disconnect wires from switch. Turn on power. Do not stand on wet surface. Test each wire to bare copper wire. When tester lights up, that is Hot wire. The other wire goes to load.
Hot wire goes to Black timer wire
Wire to load goes to Red timer wire
White wire connects to white wires that are twisted together
Bare copper wire connects to Green wire from timer
How to connect white wire to white wires that are twisted together.
a) Strip white timer wire so you have 1-1/2 " of bare wire. Stranded wire will wrap around other wires easily.
b) Remove wire nut. DO NOT UNTWIST wires.
c) Hold all whites together so bare copper lines up. Wrap stranded copper around the twisted wire.
d) Replace wire nut, or use larger wire nut. Twist real tight. Do not use tape. You can solder the connection.
e) When done, pull on white time wire to make sure it is held tight. Push whites back into box.
