Today I am going to attempt to replace my Whisperflo 2.5hp uprated pump motor with a new AO Smith B2984 2-speed motor. Wiring is 220v.
I was looking through the forum for some guidance in wiring this monster up. I found this post but have some questions.
I purchased one of those end cap 2 speed switch kits - doesn't fit and doesn't have any wiring directions... The switch used is a 3-way 3 pole toggle switch.
I went to my local HD and purchased a 3-way 3 terminal toggle switch exactly like the one used on the end cap kit. Will this work using the directions below?
Can someone help this electrical idiot out with some clear directions? Sure appreciate the help!230v motor wiring;
You need a DPDT (Double Pole Double Throw) Center Off switch.
One of the Hot leads goes the the center pole on one side of the switch.
The high speed terminal (L1) goes to one of the side poles on the same side of the switch as the first hot lead.
The low speed terminal (A) goes to the other side pole one the same side of the switch as the first hot lead.
The second hot lead goes to the other side of the switch.
The L2 (Com) terminal wires to one of the switch termminals on the same side of the switch as the second hot.
A jumper needs to be ran between the side poles of the switch terminals that the second hot is going to.
