    help - wiring new pump motor

    In the middle of installing a new UST10172 motor on a pump. Ready to hook it up but there are no wiring diagrams provided. I know these are usually from the factory at 230V but I have a 115v installation.

    Anyone know how to change this? It's not obvious to me by looking at the existing wiring and the old motor is just a bit different.

    Thanks

    Does the dataplate on the new motor indicate it can be run on 120/240? If not, then you will have to run a new line from a 240 (two pole) circuit breaker.

    There's no diagram on the motor?

    You got it! The diagram was right on the motor. Pump could be run in either 230 or 115 mode and all I had to do was turn a lever on the motor. Pump is now up and running fine.

    Thanks for helping!
