I'm installing a new motor on my pump, replacing the single speed with 2 speed. It's wired for 115v. I'm about to wire it up, but ran into unexpected issue.
In my house main breaker box all of the neutrals,are connected to the bare copper grounds(as far as I can tell) and the intermatic box on the outside of the house is also grounded to a neutral. The old pump motor did not have ground wire connected on the inside,just hot and neutral. There was/is an extra neutral wire at the pump that was not connected, it had a wire nut on it. There is what looks like a bonding wire on the outside going into the ground(I know these are two separate animals).
So now the question..Should I use the extra nuetral wire at the pump end for a "ground" inside the motor or just leave it off, or do I need to do,something else? I'm guessing that extra neutral is coming from an outdoor electrical box (GFI) near the pool.
Thanks in advance.
