Customer Question

I am replacing an A.O. Smith Centurion 1 hp pool pump motor with a Century 1 hp motor. The old motor a black wire connected to an L1 terminal, a black wire connected to an L2 terminal, a green wire connected to an "A" terminal, a white wire connected to a "B" terminal and another green wire connected to a perhaps a ground terminal. The new motor has L1, L2, A and a apparently a ground terminal. There is no "B" terminal.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Is there anything else the Electrician should be aware of?
Customer: Not that I can tell you. Both motors are rated 115/230, 60 hz, sf 1.25, phase 1, 3450 rpm. The old motor is 7.1/14.2 amps and the new one 6.6/13.2 amps.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Electrician about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) The pump motor is dual rated for either 120 or 240 volts. If you are connecting to a 240 volt source, only the 2 hots and 1 equipment ground are required and the neutral is not needed. Cap off the white neutral wire with a plastic wire nut as it is not required.
