Hi Donna, This motor will fit the Pentair WF-26 pump, there is not a cheaper option. We also recommend getting the Pentair/Purex Whisperflo Tune Up Kit (GOKIT32).

Will pump replace a 12 year old Sta-rite Dura-glas P2RA5E182L pump? And if so, can this be done without making any other modifications.

A     Answered on 7/7/2016 by Lennox H.

Hi, The original P2RA5E-181L pump can use the USQ1102 or B853 motor. If the motor has been changed with a larger motor then we will need the part, mod or cat number from off of the current motor.

I need to replace the motor on my 10+ year old Sta-rite Dura-glas P2RA5E182L pump. The current motor is a replacement CAT B848; Part 0-177080-24; y56y; HP 1.0; SF 1.65. Which motor do you recommend please? Will need to replace a C105-137P EB impeller and ceramic seal also... Thanks

A     Answered on 6/19/2016 by Patrick P.

Hi Shannon, This motor is the exact same motor as the B848 Motor so I would go with whichever is less expensive. The impeller and shaft seal for your pump can found on the Dura Glas Pump Parts Page.

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.

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.

A     Answered on 6/9/2016 by Scott W.

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.

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.

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.

A     Answered on 6/5/2016 by Lennox H.

Hi Tom, The B854 and Whisperflo Saltwater Tune Up Kit - GOKIT32SALT are the parts needed to get your pump up and running again.

A     Answered on 6/1/2016 by Lennox H.

Hi Alan, The B854 motor is the correct motor for the WF-26 pump. The Impeller - 073128 and GOKIT32 or GOKIT32SALT will be the impeller and tune up kit for the WF-26 pump.

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 ?

A     Answered on 5/30/2016 by Patrick P.

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 this motor work as a replacement t for my pentair WF-26 1.5 hp pump?

A     Answered on 5/22/2016 by Patrick P.

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.

?     Asked on 5/20/2016 by MNevarez

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.

A     Answered on 5/21/2016 by Patrick P.

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.

Does this pump come with gaskets

A     Answered on 5/16/2016 by Hector F.

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

A     Answered on 3/14/2016 by Lennox H.

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.

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.

A     Answered on 12/1/2015 by Charlie R.

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.

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.

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.

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 are the dimensions on the shaft bearings or a part number and do you sell replacements?

A     Answered on 9/30/2014 by Patrick P.

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     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)  Replacement pool pump motor

from St. Helena Island, SC ()

Pros: The motor was exactly the same as the one I was replacing. Fast delivery.

Cons: None

My old pump motor died. Our local pool service said they would gladly replace it for $310 + $150 for the service call and labor + $40 for the O ring kit. I went to your site and found that you sell the exact same motor for $180 and the proper Go Kit. I got the replacement motor and Go Kit ordered from you. It came very promptly. I watched the installation video you provided then installed the new motor myself quite easily. Ordering from INYOPools and installing the motor and O rings myself I saved $300 Vs. the quoted price from the local pool service company. I am quite please.
