    Switching to SuperPump, not too super

    Hey all, have made a rah roo with the superpump, trying to switch from 230 to 115. There is a little black clasp with 2 wires and no directions. So messing with it all day yesterday I managed to rip both wires out. I know not a good thing. Advice prayers swinging chickens something.

    A lil more info on which super pump (model number) you are wiring would be handy. Possibly a picture of the wires you "ripped" out and where they were ripped from. Motors ship with test leads attached to the L1 and L2 terminals for factory testing that must be removed before you install the power wires. What steps are you taking to convert from 110v to 230v for your feeder supply?

    Can you post a picture of the back with the wiring? The pump type generally does not help; it's the motor that matters.

    Pool motors typically don't come with test wires connected to L1 and L2.

    Why are you going from 230 to 115?

    Well the original pump was wired 115, the Superpump comes preset at 230 just need to change to 115
