I have an old A.O. Smith motor that's been rebuilt. It is 7-177216-24. Is this the correct replacement? What impeller kit and diffuser kit goes with it? I need that too.

A     Answered on 5/19/2017 by Hector F.

Yes, this is the correct replacement motor. Those kits will depend on the model of the front pump housing that the motor bolts to. Please call in with that information or you can submit images of that housing through our support request page so we can further assist.

Turned on my pump for first time and after priming the motor started smoking. it didn't sound great when priming and seemed to lose pressure as water was not squirting out of relief valve. i have Century Centurian motor. Part # 7-193986-24. will this motor be the correct one to replace it? Thank you

A     Answered on 5/16/2017 by Hector F.

Yes this would be the correct motor replacement. Also, it would be wise to replace the seals and gaskets during the process. If you need assistance cross referencing that please provide us with the front pump housing model name or number. You can call in with that information or if you do not know then you can email us a few images of that housing through our support request page.

?     Asked on 5/4/2017 by Don M.

Hi, I have two WhisperFlo pumps with motors that need to be replaced. Both pumps are model WF-26, 1.5HP, SF 1.10. One is the main and the other is a feature pump. The main is part number 7-17745-20. FR Y56Y. It's amp draw is 8.0/16.0. The feature has part number 7-186236-20. FR P56Y. It's amp draw is 5.4/10.8. The replacement motor you sell shows a frame of 56y. Will that work with the Y56Y and the P56Y? Can the replacement be used with my feature pump with the higher amp draw?

A     Answered on 5/4/2017 by Lennox H.

Hi, Don. The B2854 motor which is the replacement for the WF-26 pump and the B2846 motor which replaces p/n 7-186236-20 are the correct replacement motors that will replace the P56Y frame motors. You can increase the motor with a higher hp motor which will require also replacing the impeller and other parts. I would also recommend purchasing the Pentair Whisperflo Tune Up Kit - GOKIT32 or GOKIT32SALT.

?     Asked on 4/25/2017 by Michael

My motor was still running when It started squealing with a high pitch sound. I saw water leaking from between the housing and the motor. Not exactly sure where. What else is needed besides the motor? Do need the Seal Plate- Almond - 356012?

A     Answered on 4/26/2017 by Lennox H.

Hi, Michael. You will need to replace the pump shaft seal along with the o-rings inside of the pump. That particular seal plate can fit on the Pentair / Pac Fab Pinnacle Pump and the Pentair Superflo Pump. You can click the links provided to view the available parts of both pumps which will have the parts listed.

?     Asked on 4/17/2017 by Vic

I have a pentair challenger 1.0 hp motor/pump system and need to replace the motor. Can I use the AO Smith 1.5 hp as a replacement motor without changing the impeller?

A     Answered on 4/17/2017 by Patrick P.

Hi Vic, You would need to upgrade your impeller to the 1.5 HP impeller if you upgrade your motor to 1.5 HP. The reason being is that if you stayed with your 1 HP impeller then you would be paying the operational cost to run a 1.5 HP motor but only getting the water output of the 1 HP impeller.

?     Asked on 3/29/2017 by Jarrett

Hello. I have two identical motors that need to be replaced -- the existing ones are MagneTek Century Centurion 168345, Frame Y56Y. The pump for each is the PacFab CHII-N1-2A. These pumps are only used rarely, one to run the spa jets and one to run a couple of fountain bubblers in the main pool. Is this the right replacement motor for my needs, and if so what else do I need to purchase at the same time (shaft seal, etc)? Given the limited use of these, are there any lower cost options?

A     Answered on 3/29/2017 by Andy O.

Hello Jarrett- No that will not be the correct motor. The model pump you have is Pentair Challenger 2 HP 115/230V Single Speed, UR Pump - 346201 (CHII-N1-2A). The motor that will work for your pump is  the A.O. Smith 2 HP, 56Y Frame, Up-Rate Motor - B855. We would also recommend the Tune Up Kit Pentair Challenger Pump - GOKIT5.

A     Answered on 3/28/2017 by Hector F.

The replacement motor would be the B854 and the seal kit is the gokit5. Please keep in mind that if you need the squared style of the diffuser and housing gaskets then those would be sold separately.

we just bought our house. we have a 9000 gal kidney pool. there is a heat pump heater Hayward HPC-1, model PE52A2 that runs but does not heat the water. i am thinking of replacing it with a Hayward HP21104T because it looks like a one for one replacement. there is a Pentair WisperFlo pump with a century B2854 replacement motor on it. when the motor starts it delays for several seconds is there a kit or something to repair the motor or just replace it? thanks

A     Answered on 2/27/2017 by Scott W.

Yes, the HP21104T would be the replacement for your current heat pump. As for your WhisperFlo the replacement motor B854 and seal kit is GOKIT32 unless you have a saltwater pool then it's GOKIT32SALT.

I have a Jandy Pro Series Pump, Model FHPM 1.5 single speed. Is there a way to convert it to 2 speed? This pump is used for Spa Jets and it is too strong. Another idea would be to use a valve to restrict the drain water into the pump. Would this work or would it damage the pump? Thanks.

A     Answered on 2/15/2017 by Lennox H.

Hi, Albert. You can use the 2-Green B2982T Motor as a replacement. You can use a valve to restrict the water flow to the pump but you'll have to ba careful not starve the pump. The pump will let you know when there is not enough water coming into the pump.

It has a Century Centurion AO Smith pool pump motor, part number O-193986-24. Type CX Frame Y 56 Y The pump is a Jandy FloPro Series, model FHPM. What is this the replacement motor? What pump seal kit do I need? My unit looks square. Are there any issues(options) with the connection to the pump? Thank you

A     Answered on 2/3/2017 by Alan M.

The correct replacement motor would be the A.O. Smith 1 HP, 56Y Frame, Up-Rate Motor (B2853). There is not a seal kit available for this pump currently, but you will need to replace the Shaft Seal (R0479400) OEM whenever you change out the motor. Here is a link to the Jandy Flo Pro Pump FHPM Parts page for your reference in the event you need additional gaskets, o-rings, or parts.

Yes, that would be the correct motor replacement. I will need the Jandy pump model, not the motor, to find the correct shaft seal though. If you do not know please attach a side view picture of your complete pump so I can help you with that.

Your description on b2854 says it is 1.5hp but never states my part # in the description or on section of pumps that this will replace.

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.

I have A.O.Smith B848 Centurion 1.0 HP motor, Can I replace1.5HP B2848 motor instead?

A     Answered on 5/16/2015 by Patrick P.

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.

Hi Marco, We do carry all of the Individual Parts for the Waterway Champion Pump but unfortunately there is not a tune up kit for the Champion pump so you would purchase the parts individually.

Why should I purchase a Tune Up Kit?

A     Answered on 1/12/2012 by 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?

A     Answered on 1/12/2012 by 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?

A     Answered on 1/11/2012 by 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

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

from Prairie Ronde, La ()

Pros: Quality and Warranty

Cons: None

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
