If the motors are the size RPM, same voltage, same HP, same Amperage, you should be able to use it unless there are some other features built into the motor like dual speeds or something specific to the spa. As for a cost effective option you would need to cross reference the recommended replacement motor and shop around for availability and price with tax and shipping.

1 you all double billed me $5 is now like $60? Ans thank you that was little to no help. I can not find anything on the one motor so i am not able to cross reference that is why i was willing to pay for an answer that i did not get.

If you are still looking for help with your motor question and get the billing straightened out, please reply and I will try to help you. You will not find any cross referencing of those GE motor/pumps. There were so many styles, models, oems, ect that it's impossible to tell by the numbers.

I'm curious of the hot brand/model/yr you're working on. It may be helpful.

If you wish to continue I can help you, however, you just to need to help me out with a couple pics.

I will need pics of both pumps full side view so I can compare pump/motor style and size.

I will need pics of both labels on the side of each motor with all the technical info. This will tell me if they are comparable in hp, amps,speeds, and voltage.

If you can provide those pics so I can get my eyes on them, I will tell you if they will swap. If they will not, I will locate you a replacement pump that will.

Standing by.
