Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I have a Gould 8-152690-01 pool pump. Nameplate says 220 volt. Capacitor is a 110/125 volt. Will this work or has someone put in wrong capacitor

Looking for a wiring diagram to determine if this is actually wired for 220 and if they have put in right capacitor. The one that was in it is a baldor 270-324 mfd.

    Hi Henry Jonk, does the motor have a label of the voltage of 240v . if so a 240v version would be safer. The wrong voltage would blow up capacitor long term.

    Motor Start Capacitor 270-324 uf MDF 220-250V AC 50/60 Hz Round CD60

    if the unit was designed for USA originally the motor may have a step down transformer to step down from 240 to 120 v . The power lead would go to a transformer primary coil if this was the case . And the secondary coil would convert the voltage down Maybe to 125v

I have a Pentair 7 186237-01 pool pump. the capacitor was replaced 1 year ago. it is acting like the capacitor has failed again. did they put on the wrong capacitor?

capacitors either work or they don't work
being electronic and subject to surges and spikes they can last many years or just months
there are various qualities of capacitors but even that is no guarantee of long life
you can check if the capacitor is correct by getting oll of the details off the plate on the motor( volts, current , rpms , hertz-phase , cycles etc and with that information take the failed capacitor to an electric motor repair shop and they will know if it was correct or not
the requirements are correct voltage and mica/peka farads required to start/run the motor
there is a permissible range but outside that range , the capacitor is wrong

I bought a fan motor for my hp 2100, when i went to swap it i found the new fan had 1 less hot wire than the old 1. when i installed it, it does not work. could i have bought a 110 motor when i need a 220?

old motor has data needed for replacement. hp, sf ,rotation ,rpm, volts and capacitor size required. the extra wire can be for a capacitor conection usaly brown in color and if you look at the label it will tell you how to eliminate the need for this wire.

They can vary from year to year.

Replaced capacitor on sega game gear for sound but I get a blast of sound in the backdrop I hear whistle noise whats going on. Is it because i used a 220 uf 50 volt capacitor and if so then why am i...

I apologize for not getting back to you sooner on this one, to be honest, im not terribly familiar with replacing capacitors on game gears, however that would appear to be the issue, someone else might be better suited to help with the technicalities on that one. Sounds like Ironfist109 knows what he's talking about. Again, sorry I wasnt any more help =\

Wirng connecions for 110v pentair pool motor???

There shopuld be a diagram on the nameplate of the motor, or on the cover for the wiring compartment, or there is some stamped indication at the wiring lugs that tell you where to put your feed and what position the internal wires are to be in or the jumper .. for 110 volts or 220 volts.

Motor feels bound and hard to turn... DYNAMO PaFab Pool Pump.. motor can be turned by hand.. but just hums when turned on..

If there is a capacitor on it, you could replace that. If there is no capacitor the starting switch is probably broken. If you are not used to working with electricity, either have someone qualified work on it or...BE CAREFUL!..God luck...Lee

220 V Single phase/cap 4hp two speed A.O.Smith motor problem

It is a capacitor problem. Motors use capacitors to start. Your 2 speed motor should have 2 capacitors (or 1 capacitor with more than 2 connections). Changing this capacitor should solve your problem.
