Thank you, ***** ***** to include that my 230v power in, is going to a pressure switch. My black and white coming in are wired to line and my power to motor are wired to load. The green wire is just wired to my pressure switch ground. There is no green wire ran to motor. It is mounted on same surface as my switch though.
