    Hots are L1 and L2 or Line1 and Line2. No neutral on a 220V setup.

    One line should go to L1, the other line should go to the center of the switch.

    That diagram is not very good.

    The switch is full. Came like that from the manufacturer. No where to hook another wire

    One hot goes on terminal #1 and the other hot goes on terminal #3 or #4 whichever it's labeled in the motor. The switch is already wired internally.

    The speed switch should have three(3) positions; low-off-high. It isn't on off is it?
    Did you try both high and low?

    A photo if the wiring and the wiring diagram on the motor would help.

    Mine only had 2 positions as well and I had to connect the second line to the middle of the switch. Where does the wire from the middle of the switch connect?

    The Superpump has 2 position switch and power should go to L1 and L2. Did you test the lines going to the motor terminals to make sure you have power directly to the motor?

    Wire from the middle of the switch goes to L3 terminal. I just dont wanna hook this up wrong and burn it up. I am pretty sure the incoming leads r hot but i cant test it right now i am at work. Plus i am working on uploading nameplate w diagram and picture of peckerhead.

    Did you ever get this resolved? If so, would you be able to post pictures? I'm dealing with the same issue.

    Re: How to wire 2 speed pump

    Generally, a 2 speed has a common that is on #1, a "high" terminal and a "low" terminal. The switch takes one hot lead off the breaker and splits it between the high and low side windings. The other hot lead from the breaker goes to the common terminal. No neutral.

    Like jason said, post up a wiring diagram.
