The V-Green 165 variable speed motor joins a growing Century lineup of premium efficiency ECM replacement pump motors. Fully featured, the V-Green 165 incorporates durable TEFC construction with ECM technology to deliver premium energy efficiency from 40 percent to 80 percent versus a standard single speed motor. Now energy conscious pool owners have an affordable replacement pump motor option that delivers the performance they demand with the programming flexibility they desire.

The V-Green 165 offers three variable speeds programmable from 600 to 3450 RPM, allowing users to easily identify and set the appropriate speeds to minimize energy consumption and lower the overall cost of pool ownership all while maintaining the proper pool environment. Pool size, the presence of additional water features, chemical maintenance needs, and environmental factors will impact the equation with every pool having unique requirements. The programming flexibility offered by the V-Green 165 makes it possible for pool owners to easily identify and adjust speed and duration settings necessary to maintain their pools and to maximize energy savings.

Available in both square flange and C-face configurations, the highly versatile V-Green 165 motor can be utilized in pool pump applications ranging from 1/2 to 1.65 total horsepower. Installation on most pumps regardless of manufacturer is as simple as replacing a standard single speed motor, with no additional wiring or plumbing required thanks to the V-Green motor’s integrated user interface. Equipped with digital inputs, the V-Green 165 motor is even compatible with third party pool automation systems.

I currently have a ecm16squ that will not turn on. When any button is pushed the 1, 2 and 3 numbers light up and blink. Is there a fix for that code or will I need a new motor? If I have to replace the pump I see I should replace the seals. I have a few numbers on the pump hoping you can assist with finding the correct kit. On the pump i have p4ra6c with code 1ho1o. Strainer lid is c3-185p and the tightening band is by r.g. ray 10120. Thank You in Advance

Hi, Dale. The Keypad appears to be locked, to unlock the keypad by holding down the same three STEP buttons for at least three seconds. The “active LEDs” for STEP 1, STEP 2, and STEP 3 will illuminate temporarily indicating the keypad is unlocked.

I have a Pentair 342001 Pool Pump with a noisy motor bearing. The Pentair motor number is 353134s. I have been told that the motor is not repairable to replace the bearing. Also I came across a Century motor number EPA16SQ as a possible replacement, is this same as the above on your website. Also I saw on your website there was instructions for replacing the motor bearing, is this possible on the variable speed motor? I am located in Cape Coral.

Hi, William. Replacing bearing in a variable speed motor like the one you have is not easy and requires special tools, unlike a traditional motor. You can use this ECM16SQU or the EPA16SQ motor as a replacement.

What other parts do I need (seals/orings, parts convert from 56Y to 48Y etc) ? I forgot to mention, I have a Zodiac MX380 cleaner that uses the same pump to clean my pool, thru a dedicated "outlet" while the pump is circulating. Can this motor take care of the cleaning or do i need to look into another option ?

This variable-speed motor would provide enough power for a dedicated cleaner line with your pump. There is not a seal kit that would convert the frame size on the motor however the seal kit is the first two items listed on the parts diagram here

I have an SP3207EE and am considering this motor instead of the typical one-speed replacement. Since this is somewhat higher rated at max speed, would there be any value in many swapping the impeller for the SPX3210C?

Hi, Eric. You will not need to replacement impeller if the water flow was sufficient using the SPX3207C impeller. Only if you want to increase the water flow, then you will want to replace the impeller with SPX3210C, you will have to make sure you filter is large enough.

I just purchased a V-green 165 variable speed motor from you. My question is, for how many hours should I run the pump? (I have a 15,000 gallon pool). What would be a good timer program for my application? BTW, I live in a mild climate, in N/W California.

Ronald, the programming of the V-Green 1.65 HP Square Flange 48Y Variable Speed Motor - ECM16SQU will vary based on an individual's situation and is kind of a trial and error process most of the time. I suggest reading our article "Best Setup For Variable Speed Pool Pumps" which will give you tips on how to set up your variable speed pool pump to achieve the greatest performance and energy savings. That will give you a good foundation for the trial and error process I referred to previously.

I would like to replace my AO smith B2982T pump and timer with the V-green 1.65 and add the V-green 270 interface. Is this a compatible replacement? Is there a seal kit for this type of replacement? Thanks. Tim
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/26/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Absolutely!  No issues replacing a B2982T with ECM16SQU and adding the VGreen AFUI Kit (VGreen270 UI) To determine the seal kit you need the pump make and model information, common pump names would be Pentair Whisperflo, Pentair Challenger, Jandy Stealth, etc.. To supply this information click the reply link below, also if you could send a few photos those are always helpful as well. If you send photos then take a close up shot of the motor label as well as a wide shot of the complete pump to include the pipes going in and out of the pump. To supply photos simply click the reply link below and upload your photos. Once we get any of this information we can make the proper recommendation.

My LCD went bad and I want to replace with variable speed for a little more low speed power and better interface with the V Green 270 UI. Generally my pipe & housing seals are fine and replace regularly. I just read you should replace seals between the new motor and old housing when you add a new motor, shaft seal, etc. Is this correct? Pointing me in the direction of those types of seals would be helpful. Thank you.

I posed a question earlier today regarding the pump starting prior to the normal 24 hour timer. In reviewing the manual, I noticed that the motor has a 'freeze protection' mode. Our temps dropped to below 39 degrees last night and assuming that's why the motor started. Thanks -
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/18/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

In the event that the outside air temperature drops below a set threshold, the V-Green 165 will automatically turn on (assuming the START button has been pressed) and circulate the pool water. The Freeze Protection will run according to the following conditions (utilizing the factory default settings): Freeze Protection turn ON temperature = 39°F Freeze Protection Duration = 8 Hours

Hi, I've had this exact motor for 3 seasons, starting the 4th season now. Just today, the pump started over 2 hours early. The internal 24 hour timer has always worked perfectly, but for some reason it didn't today. This is a concern as I have a booster pump in series on a mechanical timer for my Polaris which requires the main pump to be on. Any idea on why this might have occurred and how I can make sure that it doesn't happen again? There were no power outages either. Thank you
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/16/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Steve M.

Hi, Tony. This motor will only run when power from the external timer is applied. So if it starts pre-maturely, then the issue will be the timer, not the motor.

I recently purchased this VS motor for my WF-28 pump, as per INYO recommendation, to replace my old SS motor. I am having a problem with the impeller binding up on the motor shaft when the unit tries to run. The motor runs for about 5 secs then stops. The impeller is torqued so tightly it takes me holding the impeller while someone else uses the 5/16th allen with a torque bar on the motor to break it free. Once the impeller is loose, the motor spins freely. What am I missing? Images to come.

Hi, Tom. Yes, this variable speed replacement motor will fit the Ultra Flow Pump. You will need to make sure your impeller match with Part # 39005210. You will also need to get the Ultra Flow Tune Up Kit - GOKIT20

I have a "1.65 HP Variable Speed Pool Pump Motor" and it is starting to make a HIGH-PITCH noise. The noise sounds like it is coming from the impeller area or possible the bearing on the impeller shaft coming out of the motor. I am having trouble getting a pool service person out to check the problem out. My question is: "Has anyone else had this type of problem and if so then what is the actual problem?".
 Reply

A  Answered on 8/6/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Mosty commonly the screeching sound coming from this area is either the motor bearings failing or for some reason or another, the impeller has begun grinding against the diffuser. It is common enough but not terribly.

Pool is roughly 21,000 gallons with 1.5" PVC plumbing. Is the ECM16SQU large enough to get the desired 1~1.5 turnovers a day with enough flow at the lowest speeds?

Hi, Brian K. Based on the info provided, this ECM16SQU motor will work. The lowest RPM that you will be able to operate the motor at will be 2450 RPM with approximately 20-25 GPM. Operating the pump from 2 pm to 8 pm is only 6 hours. To turnover your pool in 10 hours you will need a flow rate of 35 GPM, which will be about 3000 RPM's.

Hi Carlos, You could upgrade your motor to variable speed and this is the correct replacement motor for your 1.5 HP Whisperflo Pump as long as the SF rating on your motor label is not higher than 1.1. If you do have an SF rating like 1.5 then you would need the 2.7 HP Variable Speed Replacement Motor. In either case, you will also need a Whisperflo Tune Up Kit.

This would be a drop in replacement for your  Pentair 7-177449-03, however, we would suggest upgrading your impeller to a 1.5 HP uprated impeller to take advantage of the higher HP range of this motor. If you could reply back to this email with the model of your Pentair Pump then we could suggest the proper impeller and seal kit. The most popular Pentair Pumps are the Whisperflo, Challenger and Super Flo.

Your WhisperFlo has a total horsepower of 2.2 so I would recommend the ECM27SQU because the 1.65HP variable speed motor has less total horsepower. With the ECM27SQU you can adjust the RPM's to a lower setting if needed but you do not want to decrease horsepower unless you know your system will be able to run efficiently at a decreased flow rate. Whatever motor you chose you will want a seal kit to go along with it, that is GOKIT32.

I currently have a Pentair Sta-Rite Dyna-Glas or Dyna-Max pump (haven't located exact model yet) with a FAILED 2nd replacment Century USQ1102 1HP FR48Y square flange motor. I believe it is running on 230 volts as I see two separate breakers although I haven't yet opened the motor to validate the voltage. Can the ECM16SQU be used as a suitable retrofit for a variable speed motor? Will I need any adapters or gasket kits?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/3/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

Yes, the ECM16SQU would be a great replacement variable speed motor for your pump. You do not need the tune up kit if you have replaced them in the past few years, but it is required to replace the shaft seal when you do a motor installation. That would be part number 5057-07.

A  Answered on 12/19/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Adam Y.

Good morning Paul, No you wouldn't be able to use your old impeller with this pump and if you have a 3hp impeller this pump would not be a good replacement. The max flow on this pump would only be half of your old pump and probably wouldn't even have enough operating pressure to create proper flow. How old is your current pump it may still be under warranty. What is the total hp on your current pump and I will find you a suitable replacement.

I'm pretty confused (born that way).

I have a Sta-Rite Max-E-Glass II -P4E6E, with A.O.Smith 1 hp (SF: 1.65) 230V-single speed 3450 motor model K48L2PA105; FR: 48Y Would this be the right replacement for my P4E6E /pump motor setup? What else do I need to integrate it with my old Aqualink RS6 (to old to flash memory) ... Thanks for your help.
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/23/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, The ECM16SQU Variable Speed motor will be the correct replacement. I would also recommend getting the Max-E-Glas II / DuraGlas II Tune Up Kit (GOKIT38). You would net need anything else. This motor will not be able to be fully controlled by the Aqualink controller. You would have to wire it to your controller, set the On/OFF time and then set the duration and RPM that you would want the motor to operate.

As a follow up to my earlier question, if we install a solar system on a second story roof (9, 4x8 panels - total 288sf), would this pump (or any other vsp) be a waste of money? Specifically, if it ran at slower speeds to save energy, are those slower speeds (lower HP) enough to transport the pool water through all those collectors way up on the second story roof? Or is better to stick with a standard single speed pump motor?
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/19/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Megan C.

Hi, John. It is best recommended to use at least a 2.0HP pump to supply sufficient amount of flow to the panels. When sizing a pump that is 2.0HP or greater it is required to have 2" or larger PVC. If you are thinking of converting to Variable Speed Pump I would suggest reviewing other options. When operating Solar Panels, you would set the equipment to operate at the higher speed. When the Solar Panels are not in use you can program the pump to operate at lower speeds. Operating Solar Panel with Variable Speed equipment is best used with an Automation System.

I have a Whisperflo 3/4 hp and I want to change to your 1.65 hp Variable speed pump. I keep seeing that I need to change the impeller which makes sense to move water, but I also need to change the diffusor? Please provide part numbers. I clean pools for a living and many of my customers have Variable speed pumps and tell me they save a lot of money with them. This makes sense to just keep my wet end and replace motor which I can do. Much more cost effective to do it this way. Thanks

What is the diameter of the square face V-165 motor? (The 5-5/8" skinny motor or the 6-1/2" fat motor)? My Sta rite pump uses the 5-5/8" diameter motor so I want to be sure it will fit the base. Thanks
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/16/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Megan C.

Hi, Bill. Swimming Pool Motors are usually classified under 56-frame (wider diameter) or 48-frame (slimmer diameter). The 1.65 HP Variable Speed Pool Pump Motor Square Flange ECM16SQU is a 48-frame motor. Please refer to your motor label to check your frame size.

After installation, did you notice a decrease in your electric bill?
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/12/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Jeff - This motor has the ability to decrease your electric consumption by up to 80%. Running it on the lower speeds dramatically decreases the amp draw and that's where you will see the savings.

A  Answered on 7/11/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Yes this motor will fit your Max-e-pro P6E6C-204L pump. One thing to consider is that your pump is 1/2 HP and this motor can go up to 1.65 HP so to get the ability to use the HP above 1/2 HP you would need to upgrade your impeller and we would also suggest a tune up kit. Both of these items can be found on the Sta Rite Max E Pro Exploded Parts Diagram.
