Do you have a replacement pump for my 2000 jacuzzi Ultra Jet Mod 5KC38RN3818X Can I get an email address to send you a picture ?
Good afternoon Linda, You can email me firstname.lastname@example.org. You can send a picture but it would be easier if you just tell me what hp/sf/volts and if it is side or center discharge. and I can find you a replacement pump. Pictures work too. One of the entire pump and a closeup of the top label.
I have a Pentair Superflo High Performance Pump model 340039. The motor model # is 196239. This motor looks like the correct replacement. Is it?
Hi Jay, Yes, the B854 motor is the correct replacement for the Pentair SuperFlo Pump model 340039. I would also recommend replacing the shaft seal, o-rings and gasket for this pump which are all located on the Pentair SuperFlo Pump Parts page.
The part number on my pump is either an 8 or B 8-177475-20. both are about 20 years old. Is this pump the correct pump.
Good morning Terry, When searching the part number you provided us. It is coming up as a Full rated 1hp motor. Which is like having a 1.5Hp pump. Its rated horsepower is 1.65 you will need to have an impeller for a 1.5hp pump.1 HP Standard Motor - Full Rate (B2848)
I have a Flotec Model AT251501-01 that is only a year old but unfortunately got flooded a few times this season and died. Is this the correct replacement motor and what seal will I need to replace it?
David, You can either use that motor or the Energy Efficient motor recommended on the Flotec AT251001 & AT251501 Parts Page. Key #7 is the shaft seal, any one of those would work.
Does the the b2854 1 .5 motor come with a seal or is it a separate purchase?
The shaft seals need to be purchased separately and would based on the model of the front pump housing that the motors bolt to.
Is this the replacement motor for a Centurion (PAC-FAB), 230/115 Volts, 3450 RPM, Type CX, Part# 8-16845323? Also need a pump gasket kit for a PAC-FAB pump of same vintage, circa 1970-1980. Only slightly legible number I can find is either 30-0000 or 30-0300 next to brand name. Thanks.
Yes, the B854 would be the correct replacement for your pump.
Does this motor replace the Pentair 177475 motor
Yes, the B848 and the B854 have the same total horsepower and will fit your pump, and the B854 is $14 cheaper.
Do you have a chart or some piece of literature that explains what the codes are? For example, what the code F would be, or say, the code J would be? I need a motor replaced on a pool pump and would like to buy one with the exact specifications. Thank you,
Hello, Joe. I best recommend contacting Regal Beloit at 1-937-667-2431 as they are the manufacturer of both Century and A.O. Smith Motors. Unfortunately, we do not have a chart that identifies what each code means.

Kelly, You will need to replace it with the B849. If you replace it with the B854, you will burn out the motor.
Hi, i'm trying to replace my pump but there is no model number on it. It seems very similar to this one but all it has is a PART O-193986-24 it might be an older pump. Also the INSUL class is B and everything else looks the same.
Hi Evelyn, Yes this B2854 motor is the proper replacement for your O-193986-24 motor.
Hello. I have a dead Magnatek Centurion SE motor fitting into a Jacuzzi Magnaforce body with 17969301 on the round plate as a motor identifier - I don't know if it's a 1.5 or 2HP - the motor label is not readable - what would be the replacement motor and trim kit to seal? Pool is 13,5000 gal. and 50 ft from the equipment with no spa. Also, does the impaler assembly simply bolt off/on or are there special procedures for removing/ reinstalling? Local motor shop is first checking capacitors.
Yes sir that is the correct part number for the replacement motor, B854, and the seal kit is part number GOKIT14. As far as the install, we do videos on our website in the 'How To Guides' tab that can walk you through it. If you have any further questions don't hesitate to email back.
Good morning! I have an AO Smith part #7-F56AA12A04-24 serial#154093M. Would this be the correct replacement for my motor? Also, what GOKIT would go with it? THank you...
Hi, This motor can replace p/n 7-F56AA12A04-24, we will need to know the model of the pump housing (what the motor bolts to) in order to get you the correct seals.
Will this replace a AO Smith CAT B854, part 7-177216-24, type CX, fr Y56Y, 1.5 HP motor? How long is the warrenty?
Andy,Yes, this is the correct replacement for your B854 motor. All new motors come with a one year warranty.
I have a 40+ year old Anthony Apollo filter system that works quite well. About 15 years ago I replaced the original pump motor with an AO Smith model number K48M2N111A3 serial number 7B00 1-1/2 HP motor. It is a 3450 RPM motor that includes an FR 56C designation on the data plate. Also appearing on the data plate are SK1152 and CET 36WX. Is there a replacement for this motor? Thank you.
Hi Dan, The SK1152 motor is the correct replacement for the K48M2N111A3 motor.
I need to replace the motor on a WF-26 (Whisper Flo 26, 011773). It is a 1.5 hp motor. Also need a shaft seal (salt pool). Is this the right motor? Can you also help me with the shaft seal for a salt pool? Thanks!
Hi Tom, The B854 and Whisperflo Saltwater Tune Up Kit - GOKIT32SALT are the parts needed to get your pump up and running again.
I have a WhisperFlo Model # 26C. I need to replace the motor. I believe the replacement motor would be the B2854. Is that correct? What impeller would go with this motor? Also, what seals and rings should I be looking to purchase? Thanks.
Which is the correct GoKit for this replacement motor?
The GOKIT is matched to the pump housing and not the motor. What is your pump's model number?
I have an inground pool that is 19 years old and I am still using the original pool pump. It's time to buy a back up pump but I have a problem identifying the size of my current motor. My original pprwk said we were going to get a 1HP mtr but I remember the owner stating he was going to upgrade us to a 1 1/2HP because we were good friends. The metal tag on the motor cannot be read. On the motor is Pinnacle high flow pump Magnatek Centurion switchless motor 16718001 How can I tell what size ?
Hi Mike, That's a great run on your pump 19 years! This would be the correct replacement motor for your Magnatek Centurion switchless motor 16718001 if you are just looking to replace the motor and not the entire pump. If you want an entire pump then the Pinnacle is no longer being manufactured so you will have some re-plumbing. If you decided to go with entire new pump then I suggest the 1.5 HP PureLine Prime Pump. If you do decide to just replace the motor then you will also need a Pinnacle Tune Up Kit.
Will the b2854 replace the EB842 motor?
Rob, The B2854 will not replace it. You will need the B842: http://www.inyopools.com/Products/00200017039438.htm?Keywords=b842
Will this motor work as a replacement t for my pentair WF-26 1.5 hp pump?
Hi Mike yes this is the correct replacement motor for your Pentair Whisperflo WF-26 pump. Also whenever you replace your motor you will want to go with a Pentair Whisperflo Shaft Seal Kit as if you use your old seals they have a tendency to leak.
Pool Motor I currently have is very noisy which came with the house. We own a Purex Triton Challeger 1 1/2 HP Motor. It's a high performance pump and it's for PAC-FAB. AMB:40 TYPE:CX FORM: KJM FR: Y56Y RPM:3450 Hz: 60 PH:1 Code: J Serial BU3-03 and it says horizontal with vent holes down. We want to make sure we purchase the correct motor. Also, what is the cost of replacement motor. The front housing still in good shape also PAC-FAB.
If the Service Factor (S.F) on your motor label indicates 1.47 or 1.5 then you will need the 1.5 HP Full Rate Challenger Motor if your S.F indicates 1.10 then you will require the Challenger 1.5 HP Up Rate Motor. When replacing your motor we would suggest a Challenger Seal Kit to make sure you have no leaking with the replacement motor.
is thermal protector replaceable? what's the part number?
Hi Luis, The thermal protector is replaceable if you're able to locate one. We do not sell this part.
Does this pump come with gaskets
The motors do not come with any seals or gaskets besides the slinger. For the seal kit we would need the model of the front pump housing that the motor bolts to in order to cross reference that kit for you.
Would please tell me which propeller (Brand and model#) will fit the A.O. Smith 1.5 HP, 56Y Frame, Up-Rate Motor (b2854, 717721624)? Thank you.
The impeller type would be dependant on the front pump housing model that the motor bolts to.
My motor is slow to start but when running runs well. I think the issue is the capacitor. Can this be purchased separately? Thanks
Hi Mike, This motor does not have a Start Capacitor only a Run Capacitor which is p/n 5VR0303.
I have a A.O. Smith 3/4 HP B625 I believe it is part#7-173848-23. Which is the replacement.
Kathy,If your motor part # reads B625(7-173848-23) then your replacement is B625 and can be seen here. Don't forget to get a new shaft seal as well!
I am replacing a motor on my WhisperFlo WFE-6 pump. I see that this motor is an "Up-Rate" motor. I've read that if you go with an Up Rate motor, that this may require you to increase the HP, is this true. Or, is this the proper motor for my pump. thanks
Hi David, The WFE-6 pump replacement motor will be the A.O. Smith 1.5 HP EE Full Rate Motor (B2842) which has a total hp of 2.21, verses this B854 motor has a total hp of 1.65. The A.O. Smith 2 HP, 56Y Frame, Up-Rate Motor (B855) would be the up rate replacement for the WFE-6 pump. We also would recommend getting the Pentair/Purex Whisperflo Tune Up Kit GOKIT32 or GOKIT32SALT depending on the your sanitizer.
will this replace the flopro 1.5 hp model# fhpm1.5
Hello Steven and thank you for your question. Yes! The A.O. Smith 1.5 HP, 56Y Frame, Up-Rate Motor will replace your current motor. We recommend replacing your Shaft Seal when changing motors. Also, inspect any other o-rings that may appear damaged or worn. You can find the Jandy Flo Pro Pump FHPM parts here. Thanks again, Alan.

I need a century centurions pool motor Part 7-177215-04 HP 1

Need a replacement motor for a pentair model 346206 , what part numbers do i need? thanks
I have a 5KC39UN6086X Marathon motor that I would like to replace with this model. It is attached to a Jandy PHPM 1.0. I noticed that a shaft seal is recommend when purchasing a new motor; however, I'm not exactly sure which one to purchase. It's a saltwater pool with a Jandy PHPM 1.0 Housing. Thanks.
Jason,All of your seals pertain to the make and model of your pump end. The correct shaft seal for your Jandy PHPM pump is 5020-086 (old style) or 5020-087 (new style).The best way to tell is by the serial number listed on the pump body (housing). The old style seal is used with serial #s prior to P08FF0001. If you have the above serial # or later, you would use the new style shaft seal.
how hard is it to replace the front & rear bearings on this motor & does it take special tools? thanks, ps. the rear bearing only lasts for about 6 months then starts growling, i take it in to local shop at 100.00 a crack. they have replaced the bell end twice?? i also have tried another shop with same results. is there a heavy duty rear bearing for this motor or is this common, thnx
whats the difference in a up-rate & full rate motor? how do i tell which one i have
George,Up rated and full rated help determine your total horsepower. I recommend you take a look at our blog, "Is a 1.0HP Motor the Same as a 1.5HP Motor?" to read up a little more on the difference and how you can determine which one you currently have.
I have A. O. Smith serial # BY06-16, Part # 7-193633-24. 1.5 hp. Type cx, Fr P56j What would be the replacement part for this motor.
Hi Tim, The A.O. Smith 1.5 HP Full Rate 56J Motor (B129) would be the correct motor that will replace p/n 7-193633-24.
Can I use the whisperflow shaft seal for this model? and is it the ps 1000?
If the model of the pump housing is a Whisperflo or a model that uses the PSR 1000 seal then you can. Shaft seals needed depend on the model of the pump housings that motors are mounted to.
Model number ECM16SQU is the variable speed replacement for model B854 (B2854). Will this fit on the Jandy PHPM1.5 Pump housing?
Phil, the 1.65 HP Variable Speed Pool Pump Motor Square Flange ECM16SQU will work on your Jandy Plus HP 2006-Current PHPM & PHPF. I would also recommend a shaft seal.
Is there a variable speed motor option for this motor?
Hello Phil - Model number ECM16SQU is the variable speed replacement for model B854 (B2854).
I have a centurion pool/spa motor, part #0-193985-04 and need to know how many gallons per minute/hour it cycles? Please email me the info. THANKS!
Unfortuanately, the answer can not be gotten from the motor alone. We would need to know what pump housing this motor is attaching too. The aquadynamics of the pump housing is what affects the GPM.
I like to rebuild my Jandy PHPM1.0 into 1.5 HP pump. My plan is buy this motor with #5020-141 impeller. What else do I need to buy?
Steve- You are correct, that impeller part number 5020-141 Impeller, 1 Hp Full, 1-1/2 Hp Uprate, is the correct one. I would also recommend chang changing out the shaft seal.
We need to replace an A. O. Smith Century Centurion motor, not sure if this is the one we need. Label says: Serial: BY11-12, Part 7-177475-20. We have WhisperFlo WF-26. The pool guy said we need a full rate, but found the pump model number under up rate.
You can use this model motor or the full rate B848. Both thave the same general specifications.
Is this the correct replacement for an AC Smith Centurion switchless motor part# O-193986-24? If so other than this motor what else will I need to successfully replace the old burned out motor part# O-1963986.24?
Yes this is the correct motor replacement for you. The only other items we would recommend for your motor job would be the go kit that contains the seals and gaskets. We would need the front plastic pump housing model that the motor is mounted to in order to cross reference that seal kit for you.
does this motor have steel bearings?
Hi Dan, yes this motor does use a steel caged bearing. You may view the Bearings Used in This Motor here.
I have a Jandy Stealth 2hp pump motor that went bad. This pump is only used for two waterfalls, and pumps too much water and causes overflow problems. Can I switch just the motor out to a 1.5 hp while keeping the rest of the pump assembly intact?
Depending on the model of Jandy Stealth, yes you can. There are two different versions. To switch down a motor size you would just need to downsize the impeller and the diffuser. Other than that, all the other parts can stay the same.
is this motor the same is the AO Smith Cat: B854 Part: 0-177216-24
Hi Ray, Yes b2854, 717721624 is the same as B854 Part: 0-177216-24. When you check your motor label against the picture of the listed motor, the specification will be the same.
The only number that doesn't match is the code mine is a F
If everything else matches up and the code is the only thing that is off then you would be fine with this motor.
I have a whisper flow motor serial # BJ 12-185 part 8-177456-03 that I need to replace. What replacement motor do I need?

will this motor fit jandy shpm ?
Ezra, Yes the B854 will be the correct replacement motor for your SHPM pump.
I have A.O.Smith B848 Centurion 1.0 HP motor, Can I replace1.5HP B2848 motor instead?
Hi Vasant, If you currently have a B848 motor then I would suggest staying with the 1 HP B2848 Motor. The reason being is that most likely your filter was sized to be able to handle a 1 HP pump and possibly the 1-1/2 motor will be to powerful for your filter. If you decided you definitely want to go up to the 1-1/2 HP Motor than you would need the B2858 1-1/2 Full Rate Replacement Motor you will also need to change your impeller to a 1-1/2 HP impeller and we would need to know the model of your pump to make the impeller reccomendation.
I have a a.o.smith centurion 1.5 hp. Cat.-29, serial # 210083m, Part # 7-164304-24 3450 rpm Code H Is this the correct replacement.? Thanks
Dan, Base of of the information you've provided the correct replacement motor is P/N B129.

what shaft seal goes on C105-137PEB impeller. and does impellers ever wear where shaft seal goes against impeller?
I need to replace a Magnatek Centurion Switchless Motor 1 1/2 HP, 3450 RPM, 230/115 v., Type CX. The part number is showing 8177080-40. Is this the correct replacement?
Hello Catthy - The B854 motor would be the correct 1.5HP replacement motor.
What go kit goes with a.o.smith 1.5hp 56y frame up rate motor 717721624?
Brant, The tune up kit is based on the pump housing model not the motor. If you can get us the pump model, we can help you find the correct kit.
What is your warranty on this item?
Hello Gunter - This product has a one year warranty.
What are the dimensions on the shaft bearings or a part number and do you sell replacements?
The correct replacement bearing is part number 5270-31. The motor would require two. Here is a link to the bearing.http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352012909.htm
The frame number on my current motor is y56y and the one on the new B2854 motor shows a 56y. Does this make a difference?
Y56Y and 56Y frame motors are the same. There is no difference.
Why should I purchase a Tune Up Kit?
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?
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?
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: DreamBigGoGreen 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) Excellent Warranty
Reviewed By: Michael E. from Prairie Ronde, La ()
Pros: Quality and Warranty
I replaced this motor in December of 2015, there was a design change on the rear cover over the wiring terminals that offers better protection from water or rain than the original but the motor failed due to a run winding shorting in late July. The motor has a one year warranty, after contacting Inyopools and sending them the information and pictures requested I thought it was going to be a week or two before I heard back if it would be covered and asked them for a time estimate on a decision. An hour and a half later received an email, warranty approved, call this number and we have one shipped out today. I had to pay shipping but do not mind, a new motor would have been much more. Its an excellent product but even more important was the excellent service, something that is getting hard to find these days
