Question

Asked on 05/16/2015 by

I have the whisperflo wf-26 pump with pentair motor 7-177475-20. Is this the correct replacement? Thanks

Inyo Answer

Answered on 05/16/2015 by Product Specialist Andy O.

The B848 1 HP full rate motor for your WF-26 pump. We would also suggest the replacing the Shaft seal on your WF-26 pump as many times if you use your old shaft seal you will have leaking which will cause damage to the new motor. A leaking shaft seal will also void the motor's warranty.

Question

Asked on 05/11/2015 by Dennis

My pump motor has part #7-168453. It shows to be a 1 1/2 HP Centurion, type CX, code J. Is this the correct replacement motor?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 05/11/2015 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Dennis, Yes this would be the correct replacement for your 7-168453 motor. The reason this motor shows 1 HP and yours shows 1-1/2 HP is that this motor is a full rate motor and your motor is an uprate motor and a 1 HP full rate motor is identical to a 1-1/2 HP uprate motor. So you should be all set with going with this B848 motor.

Question

Asked on 05/04/2015 by Mark

Does this motor ship with capacitor installed or does that have to be purchased separately ?

Inyo Answer

Hello Mark - The motor ships with the capacitor already installed.

Question

Asked on 04/28/2015 by Jeff

my 1hp Magnetek motor (8-177080-24 230/155volt Y56Y SF1.65) made a scrapping high pitched noise the other day that only Rosanne Barr would have appreciated...so i turned it off. The next day there was just a humming sound. A buddy and i opened the motor, cleaned it, replaced the bearings and now ready to reattach it to the pump but want to get the correct seals and gaskets. The pump is cast iron with what looks like engraved on the strainer body, C3-29D on its lid and 01-63DA on the pump.

Inyo Answer

Answered on 04/28/2015 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Jeff, I can confirm that this is the proper replacement motor for your Magnetek 8-177080-24 motor. For the seals and gaskets I would need to know your pool pump manufacture name and model # as I was unable to cross reference any of the part #'s you supplied. Based on the part #'s you supplied I believe this is most likely a Sta-Rite pump, model names for Sta-Rite would be Max-E-Glas, Max-E-Glas II, Dura-Glas, Dura-Glas II, C Series, CC series, etc.. Also is the strainer housing plastic, cast iron or bronze? Please email us back with this information and/or any pictures of your pump, as this will help us determine the needed seals and gaskets.

My part # is 7-193993-05 is this the right motor for replacement? my pump model is SHPF 1.0

Inyo Answer

Answered on 04/27/2015 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Craig, Yes this would be the correct replacement motor for your 7-193993-05 motor being used on your Jandy SHPF 1.0 pump. We would also suggest the replacing the Shaft seal on your Jandy SHPF 1.0 pump as many times if you use your old shaft seal you will have leaking which will cause damage to the new motor. A leaking shaft seal will also void the motor's warranty.

Question

Asked on 02/23/2015 by

I have a Jandy pool pump system. The pump motor is making noises. It is an A.O. Smith 1.5HP part number 7-193986-24. Also, what seals would you recommend replacing?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 02/24/2015 by Product Specialist Robert M.

The correct replacement for your motor is model B854. The seals would depend on your Jandy model (Plus HP, Max HP, Stealth, WTFR, or Flo Pro). You can find the replacement seals on those part pages. I would recommend replacing the shaft seal, diffuser o-ring, and backplate o-ring.

Question

Asked on 01/19/2015 by Wade

I am shopping for a new pool pump motor (mine is starting to make noise). I now have a Pentair 0-177450-3 1HP motor and looking to replace it with the B848 motor. Will I have to have a different shaft seal for my Whisperflo WFE-4 pool pump?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/19/2015 by Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Wade - You could replace your current motor with the B848. The shaft seal would be the same regardless of the motor.

Question

Asked on 01/07/2015 by

What is the difference between the B2841 and B2848 motors?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/07/2015 by Product Specialist Brian M.

The difference between the B848 and the B841 is the amps it takes to run them. They are both Energy Efficient motors and both have a Total Horse Power ( horse power times service factor ) of 1.65 hp. The B841 is just slightly more efficient by running at an amp usage of 7.4-7.8 at 115v or 14.8 at  230v. The B848 will run at 8 amps at 115v and 16 amps at 230v.

Question

Asked on 01/07/2015 by Wade

Is the B848 pool pump motor suitable for outdoor pool pumps?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/07/2015 by Product Specialist Brian M.

Yes, this motor will work just fine for either indoor or outdoor applications. The motor is determined by the wet end that it is being attached too. A motor cover is recommended for outdoor use to protect from rain, sprinklers and the runoff from the roof,  rusting the motor prematurely.

Question

Asked on 01/05/2015 by Wade

Will this motor (B2848) fit a Whisperflo model WFE-4 pool pump?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/05/2015 by Product Specialist Charlie R.

Yes, the B848 motor will fit the Pentair Whisperflo WFE-4 pump.

Question

The specs for motor B848 are indeed compatible with a 230 / 115 volt motor.

Question

Asked on 10/27/2014 by terry jones

The current pump motor I have is the AO Smith 7-177475-28 1HP. As I understand it, the B2848 can be used as a replacement. Can you please verify before I complete my order?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 10/28/2014 by Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Terry - The B2848 (B848) is the correct replacement motor for the 1HP part number 7-177475-28.

Question

I have a Centurion Switchless Motor B668 HP 3/4. What one do you recommend?

Inyo Answer

We do still carry the B668 pool motor and this would be the motor we would suggest.

Question

Asked on 02/16/2012 by Guest

I just finished replacing the shaft seal on my booster pump. As soon as I turned the pump on water was leaking from the shaft seal. Is it defective or am I doing something wrong?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 02/16/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Depending on the model, the installation of a booster pump shaft seal can be slightly different than a pool pump shaft seal. Some booster pump and pool pump shaft seals require that a silicone sealant be used on the outer areas of the metal seat of the shaft seal. The seal will need to be lightly hammered into the body of the pump. You can use a 1 inch PVC coupling or a piece of 1 1/4 inch PVC pipe and a rubber mallet. This procedure will apply to any pool pump or booster pump using a >PS-1000 style shaft seal.

Question

I'm trying to replace the motor on my pool pump but all these numbers and abbreviations on the motor label are really confusing me. What do they mean?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/19/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Replacing a pool pump motor is not as difficult as it seems. You can try looking here. If you need help figuring out what the information on your label means. If you are still having difficulty figuring it out you can call us at our toll free number or you can send us a photo of your motor label here.

Question

Asked on 01/12/2012 by Guest

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.

Question

Asked on 01/12/2012 by Guest

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.

Question

Asked on 01/11/2012 by Guest

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) Pool Filter Motor

Reviewed By: from Bowie, Maryland ()

Pros: Customer service, shipping time, price and product

Cons: None that I can think of

Best of all is the wonderful customer service help provided by Inyopools. The product was here in the time specified and the price was considerably less than the 5 other companies I checked with first. The product was as specified and ordered and hasn't given me any problems to date. It was installed about a month ago.

   (5 out of 5 Stars) Do it yourself, carefully

Reviewed By: from Lawrenceville, GA ()

Pros: Exact replacement, easy changeout

Cons: None.

If you have loud bearing noise in your pool pump motor, this is the fix. Just follow these steps carefully:
1. Get the model number and any information from your existing pump motor.
2. Give the motor information to inyopools and let them select the correct motor replacement. Don't guess.
3. Give the pump (wet side) information to inyopools and let them pick the correct replacement seal package and add that to your order. Do not use the old seals.
4. Follow the instructions on the inyopools site for the motor replacement. It took me 2 hours taking my time (and I am familiar with electrical wiring so I didn't have to figure that out). The motor was a perfect replacement and the seal package had all the seals I needed (plus 2 others for other applications). The support from inyopools was timely and accurate. I can barely hear my new motor when running and it works perfectly. There was no reconfiguration needed for my pool controls, it was truly a plug and play.
