I think I have B2854 motor on my Jandy Hp Plus pump.... Is there an equivalent variable sped motor that I can purchase? and if you can tell me what seal plate I will need to purchase.

 Reply

A  Answered on 10/6/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

Hello Krupal, The V-Green 1.65 HP Square Flange 48Y Variable Speed Motor - ECM16SQU you purchased is the correct motor for your Plus HP. Also, I'm not sure if you meant shaft seal instead of seal plate, but the shaft seal you will need based on your seal number starting with "K" is the Pump Shaft Seal OEM 3/4" - R0445500. If you purchase the seal plate you will not need to purchase the shaft seal, the seal plate is the Backplate Kit - R0445200. I will send you a quote for both.

I am looking for a replacement motor for an 18 year old Centaurion PAC FAB 7 - 168453 - 24 pool pump. The bearings are bad and the pump screeches. The frame is a Y56Y with 3450 rpm, 8.0/16.0 amps, 230/115 volts and 1.5 hp.It has a square flange. Is this the correct replacement motor for this pump? Also, do I have to replace the seals on the impeller when I reassemble the pump? Which seals or other supplies will I need to complete this repair?

 Reply

A  Answered on 9/18/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Matt S.

Yes, the correct replacement motor for your 7-168453-24 Century Centurion is the Century 1.5 HP Square Flange 56Y Up Rate Motor - B2854. The gaskets are matched to the pump housing and not the motor. What is the model number or make and model of the pump housing?

I have the Pentair Sta-Rite Supermax High Performance pump that needs the motor replaced. I currently have the 1HP motor and would like to get a 1.5 HP motor. Which is the correct one(s) to choose from? TY

 Reply

A  Answered on 10/23/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi Scott, the 1.5 horsepower replacement single-speed motor will be the model B854 however it is not always recommended to go up in horsepower as it may be too much for your system. One fail-safe is to go with a variable speed so you can just adjust the RPM's and not have to worry. If you do that the variable speed motor is the ECM16SQU. Here is a guide that we put together that may also assist called "How to Size a Pool Pump for Your In-Ground Pool"

Hi Shane, the direct replacement motor for your motor part number 193989 is the B982. It is recommended to also replace the seals and gaskets when replacing a motor but in order to locate those for you, we will need the front pump housing wet end model name or number to cross-reference that for you.

    The pump housing is a Hayward. Would a Hayward spx1610z2mns be a better choice?

     Reply

    • Commented on 5/30/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

      Hi Mike, Thanks for the photos! Based on your photos you have a Hayward Super II Pump and we show that the spx1610z2mns is specific to the Hayward Northstar Pump. We would suggest this 1 HP Full Rate Dual Speed Motor and this Hayward Super II Seal Kit. The reason we are suggesting the 1 HP full rate is that the True HP for the 1 HP full rate is identical to your 1.5 HP Up Rate. Here is the math showing this 1.5 HP Up Rate - 1.5 HP x 1.0 Service Factor = True HP of 1.5 THP and 1 HP Full Rate - 1 HP x 1.5 Service Factor = True HP of 1.5 THP

Hi Alan, No this is not the proper replacement for the Hayward Super Pump in your photos. If you want to go with the same motor then you can go with this UST1152 1.5 HP Single Speed Motor if you wanted something slightly more energy efficient (i.e. about 10%) then you can go with this UCT1152 1.5 HP Motor and if you want something ultra energy-efficient (i.e. 50%-70% savings) then go with this V-Green Variable Speed Replacement Motor Your UST1152 can be wired either 115V or 230V and the Variable Speed Motor can only be wired 230V. With any of these options you will require this Hayward Super Pump Seal Kit.

Yes, pool motors are designed to run at around 140 degrees so it will be very hot to the touch. Also please be sure that the impeller being used is not rated for the motor that you had prior for it may be too heavy for the newer motor and can cause issues with the it.

Based on a prior answer to another customer from you, am I correct in thinking this would be the old style Jandy shaft seal? Also, if I decided to replace the entire pump and motor with a variable speed unit, what would you recommend as a replacement for similar service? Thanks!

            OK, Thanks. The variable speed motor you referred me to has a 48Y frame however while mine has a 56Y. Does that matter? Also I saw the B2842 motor which is single speed and claims to be about a third more energy efficient. Would that work as a replacement for my B2854?

            • Commented on 4/14/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

              Hi Jack, No worries about using a 48Y frame motor to replace a 56Y frame motor. The 56Y frame motor has a slightly larger barrel size but a rubber spacer is included with the 48Y motor so there is no gap between the motor and motor cradle. The mounting flange is the exact same between the 48Y and 56Y motors. Actually the B2841V1 1 HP Full Rate EE Motor would be the proper Energy Efficient Replacement for your motor. The reason you would need the 1 HP is that this motor has a high service factor giving it the same true HP of 1.65 as the B2854.

So in preparing to replace the seal and or motor, I separated it from the Jandy unit and trying to remove the impeller. There is a single screw (self sealing screw) that is very tight. If i understand some of the youtube videos I get it off by turning the impeller while holding the end of the motor axel with a wrench, not by using a screw driver on it?
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/9/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

If there is a screw at the very center of the impeller threading it to the shaft of the motor then that must be removed for the impeller to come off. Sometimes they can be stubborn.

A  Answered on 3/31/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi ACTX, Yes this B2854 is the correct replacement motor for the motor in your photo. You will also need a shaft seal when you replace your motor and the Jandy SHPM1.5 has used two different shaft seals and this is determined by the serial # on the side of the pump. If your serial # is before P08FF0001 then you will need this Old Style Jandy Shaft Seal and if your Serial # is after P08FF0001 you will need this New Style Jandy Shaft Seal For example if the serial # starts with an A then that is before P08FF0001 and if your serial # starts with a R than that is after P08FF0001.

Hi. You can upgrade to an energy-efficient single speed option, B2841V1ECM16SQU - Variable Speed. As for the seal kit, I will need the make and model of the pump housing.

My FloPro Jandy HP 1.5 motor is humming. Could it be the capacitors or do I need to place the motor? If it’s the motor will this model fit?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/29/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Jay. You can start by testing the capacitor using the instructions in the How to Test a Pool Pump Capacitor guide to confirm if its the culprit. If the capacitor is okay, you will have to replace the motor.

How long should a pump motet last. I purchased and installed this motor 16 months ago and the last couple of days it has started making very loud noise when it runs
 Reply

A  Answered on 9/19/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

On the average a pool motor will last approximately 3-7 years, however, other variables may affect that such as shaft seal failure, weather, resistance, insects, or even power surges. A loud noise is most commonly associated with a shaft seal failure. We recommend looking at the face of the motor to see if there is corrosion present which would be indicative of a shaft seal failure.

I have checked the front and there are no signs of corrosion. When I purchased the motor from inyopools 16 months ago I also purchased and replaced the seal.

Hi Sean, Thanks for the pictures those are helpful! Yes this is the correct replacement motor for your Jandy PHPM1.5 pump. You will also need this Jandy PHPM Shaft Seal when you replace your motor. We also have this Video on How to Replace a Pool Pump Motor which you should find helpful when you tackle this project.

      Hi Andy, The Challenger tune-up kit does not include the square gaskets, however, we are showing that square diffuser gasket and square housing gasket are used on the Medium Head Challenger Pumps and the part # from your photos CHIIN11.5A indicate that you have a High Head /High-Pressure Challenger Pump which does not require any square gaskets. Based off of this information you should get everything you need within the tune up kit.

Hi Gene, We are sorry but we are unable to track down your exact pump model so we can't suggest the proper replacement shaft seal. The B123 replacement motor has been discontinued but you could go with the B124 2 HP Replacement Motor if you go this route you will need to make sure you have 230V power as your previous motor could be wired 115V/230V and the B124 can only be wired 230V. Another option and the option I would suggest would be to go with a brand new 2 HP PureLine Prime Pump this would require a little replumbing but I believe in the long run would be your best bet.
