Question

Asked on 06/29/2015 by Bill

We just purchased a property with pool, the pump motor is C48L2N1-34C2. The pool has not been used in 3 years. Power is applied to the pump but it doesn't run - no hum, etc. What should I check?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 06/29/2015 by Product Specialist Dennis R.

Hi Bill, just a note first: If your motor is labeled C48L2N1-34C2, that is a full rated ST1102 motor instead of an uprated UST1102 about 1/2 HP difference. Now on your dead motor. Using a meter, check that you actualyl have power to the terminal of the motor and that it is the same voltage as how the motor is configured, 115V or 230V. Also check that the connection are tight. Then take the basket out and see if the impeller moves freely. If no, the bearing on the motor are probably shot. If impeller movers freely, check the start capacitor at the electrical end of the motor. See our guides under "pool pumps" for detailed instructions on any of these procedures.

Question

Asked on 06/28/2015 by Chad

I saw you said this was the replacement for a marathon c1318. Would the capacitor from this ust1102 fit the c1318 or can you tell me where I might find the capacitor for the c1318?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 06/29/2015 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Chad, The Capacitor for the UST1102 is the 161-193 MFD 110-125 VAC Start Capaciotor (BC-161), I'm not 100% sure if they uses the same capacitor. You can compare the numbers to be sure.

Question

Asked on 06/24/2015 by adam

I just purchased this pump and installed it...my voltage is 120 but when I put the selector switch on the 115 option the motor doesn't do anything except hum...when I put it on the 230 option it runs seemly fine..should I return the pump or is it safe to run in the 230 v mode

Inyo Answer

Answered on 06/24/2015 by Product Specialist Hector F.

Please double check the voltage running to the motor and adjust the setting accordingly. Also make sure all wiring to the motor is corrrect. I'd advise having a licensed electrician or pool contractor confirm this. If all looks correct at this point then I would look into a return or warranty.

Question

Asked on 06/23/2015 by Steve

I have to replace a Pump motor for a Hayward SP1607Z1M. Looks like this motor will work, but should i upsize to a 1 1/2 HP motor and would it work with the Hayward Super Pump? My pool is about 28,000 gallons. Thanks.

Inyo Answer

Answered on 06/23/2015 by Product Specialist Dennis R.

Hi Steve. With your size pool I would definitely recommend going to a 1 1/2 HP uprated motor - UST1152. You would also have to replace your pump's impeller to the next size up:   Hayward Impeller, Sp 2610-c. Also check to make sure your current filter is compatible with the new pump for water flow.Should be able to handle ~60 to 80 GPM

Hi Courtney, If you could double check the service factor (S.F.) on your motor label if it reads 1.1 then this is the correct motor for you.

I need to replace an A.O. Smith self prime super pump 1/2 HP motor Model s48h2n122b1 in Central America. The motor is overheating and turning off. I am hoping to buy a new motor to bring down. My filter looks like it is rated for 40 GPM, do you have a 1/2 HP motor so I do not have to replace the filter right now?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 04/20/2015 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi John, You would be able to go down to a smaller horserpower which would save you on operational costs. When reducing your motor size you will need to replace the impeller on your Hayward Super Pump. So if you wanted to go down to 1/2 HP you would require the Hayward 1/2 HP Motor and the Hayward 1/2 HP Impeller. We also always suggest the Hayward Super Pump Tune Up kit when replacing a motor.

Hello Eddie - That is the correct replacement motor. Make sure to get a new shaft seal as we. That is part number 5110-11 for the Hayward Max-flo. If you have a salt system, it would be seal number 5250-235.

I need to replace my Hayward 2 A.O. Smith pump motor. The model number is K48L2N104. This is a 1hp motor. Which replacement motor do you recommend? Are there a few I can choose from?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 10/25/2014 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Shane - Here is the Direct Replacement Motor for the K48L2N104 you would also have the option to upgraded to a Dual Speed Motor which typically saves you 50% on our operational costs over your current single speed motor. Here is the Dual Speed version of the K48L2N104.

I have a old Jacuzzi 94027110 and I want to know if this motor will replace the one I have? If so is there any special wiring or anything else that will need to be done or can I just take the old motor off and put this one into the housing and wire it? I would rather not buy a whole new pump unless it is absolutely necessary.

Inyo Answer

Answered on 07/10/2014 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Yes the UST1102 would be the replacement motor for your 1 HP Jacuzzi Magnum pump and there would be no different wiring required, we would suggest a Jacuzzi Magnum tune up kit when replacing your motor which includes a shaft seal, o-rings, gaskets and lubricant. Typically if you use your old shaft seal it will not mate up properly which will cause leaking.

I need to replace the motor on a Hayward Super Pump 3/4 hp. Can I go up to a 1 hp and what difference does that make? If so, does anything else need to be changed out? This is for an inground 16' x 32' pool.

Inyo Answer

Answered on 07/10/2014 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

You could go up to a 1 HP motor which would give you a higher gallon per minute rating (GPM). On a typical pool a 3/4 HP Super pump will have an output of 50 GPM's where a 1 HP will have an output of 65 GPM's. You would want to make sure that your filter could handle this increased flow rating from the 1 HP motor your filter should have a label on it which says max flow rating, this would let you know how many GPM's the filter can handle. If you increased your motor to 1 HP you would need to also replace your impeller to a 1 HP impeller, we would also suggest a Super Pump tune kit.

Will the AO Smith UCT1102 cost less to run than the UST1102?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 05/02/2013 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Yes, the UCT1102 will cost less to operate compared to the standard UST1102. Depending on how the motor is cared for, it should last several years. When replacing the motor, I would recommend buying a tune up kit based on your pump model and age.

Replacing the motor should solve your issues. Aside from the motor, you will need a GOKIT to replace the seals on your pump.

I'm trying to find a replacement motor for my pool pump but my model number doesn't match what you have listed as the model number. My model number begins with a C48 and yours begins with an SP. Please help.

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/18/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

What we have listed on our chart pages is the pump model number. The model number you have will just identify the motor. If you look on the plastic housing on the pump there should be a sticker which will have the pump model number. You can usually find this by the discharge port on the pump. Once you locate it you can choose the correct replacement motor. Be certain to change the shaft seal and gaskets as needed. You can use our >How to guide if you need help.

Why should I purchase a Tune Up Kit?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/12/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

A Tune Up Kit includes all of the essential replacement seals and gaskets for the pump. The seals and gaskets should be replaced when installing a new motor on your pump. New seals will prevent the pump from leaking water or losing the prime. A Tune Up Kit will protect your motor and ensure that the pump is working efficiently.

Why do I need to purchase a new shaft seal?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/12/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

We strongly recommend replacing the shaft seal. The purpose of a shaft seal is to prevent water from running down the shaft of the motor and into the motor housing. Water will damage the bearings and cause the motor to fail. A new shaft seal should be installed whenever a motor is replaced. The motor manufacturer can deny the warranty if the motor fails to due to water damage from a faulty shaft seal. To find your shaft seal you will need to visit our Pool Pump Parts Page or the Spa Pump Parts Page and select your make and model.

What is Service Factor?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/11/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Service Factor(SF) is a multiplier that when multiplied by the horsepower of the motor indicates the total permissible horsepower loading that may be carried when the motor is operating at rated voltage and frequency. The most important thing to remember when replacing a motor is that the replacement motor's horsepower times its service factor must be equal to or greater than the original motor's horsepower times its service factor. The Service Factor rating can be found on the motor label. See Step 4 of our How to Read a Pool Motor Label guide.

   (5 out of 5 Stars) Excellent Pump Moter Replacement

Reviewed By: from Clarence, NY ()

Pros: Awesome fit - excellent replacement

Cons: none

Tip to get the impeller off the old pump moter: use a 7/16" open ended wrench - it slides in near the capacitor on the electrical side... rotate the impeller until the wrench slides into place at the end of the shaft and then one person holds the motor and the wrench while a 2nd person loosens the impeller off with bare hands by turning the impeller counter clock-wise.

   (5 out of 5 Stars) Replacement pump motor

Reviewed By: from Franklin, MA ()

Pros: easy to install, rugged construction, high quality materials, reasonable price

Cons: no documentation

My old pump motor failed after 8 years. This motor is a direct replacement to the original so all the electrical connections are identical making installation very simple. The only critical watch out was that the motor is set to 220 volt hook-up at the factory and I had to turn a dial to 110 volt hook-up. There was a warning label that this had to be done.

   (5 out of 5 Stars) Perfect Match - Great Motor!

Reviewed By: from Phoenix, NY ()

Pros: Super quiet, FAST shipping, exact fit, works great for my in-ground pool

Cons: none

My old motor was super noisy at the end of last season so I purchased a 'rebuild kit' for it but unfortunately bolts started snapping off when I attempted to take it apart.
I sure wish I had just ordered this motor instead of spending money on a rebuild kit. I was pleasantly surprised at the price of this AND it's 1/4 more horsepower than my old motor.
Very easy to install myself and it was up and running in almost no time.
This pump is super powerful with the new PVC pipes I put in last year. Looking down at the view window on the pump filter, it doesn't even look like it's running until you look really hard and see a vortex of power in there. No air bubbles at ALL.
The only thing you need to watch out for is the amperage setting on the motor. Mine came set at 235 and 'clicked' when I first turned it on. One small turn of a nut and I changed it to 115 and it purrs like a kitten.

   (5 out of 5 Stars) Quiet Pump

Reviewed By: from Alabaster, AL ()

Pros: Quiet operation

Cons: None

This is the quietest inground pool pump I have ever heard. I used to install swimming pool pumps. Out of all the pumps I ever installed this one is by far the quietest. Besides being quiet it does a great job circulating the water in our pool.
