First let me thank you for this wonderful site, it has been very useful in managing my pool during the last 5 years.
My question involves a AO Smith/Century 2Green 2 speed pump Model# B2980.
When installing the pump on my Pentair system, I accidentally ran a wire too close to the rotating switch and damaged one of the two springs on the rotating switch. <hand face plant>
The pump runs with one spring but I am a little worried about the missing spring.
I tried to find replacement springs with no luck.
I also tried to find an entire replacement 2 speed rotating switch but they are listed as discontinued on every site I could find.
I purchased a 1 speed rotating switch but the springs did not work because they were to tight and the motor would not spin while they were in place.
So to the question, can I just leave 1 spring and be OK or does any one have a suggestion on where to get the spring or even the whole rotating switch assembly for a 2 speed?
Thanks for helping to correct my mistake,
