What type of capacitor should I use for a Hayward SPX2707Z2M 1-Horsepower 2-Speed ?

 Reply

A  Answered on 8/9/2019 by Industry Professional

The pump model info & the specific motor used do not reference the capacitor required. We match it based on the microfarads listed on the original, so if yours listed the 161-193 mfd, then 35-125-1020 is correct.

?     Asked on 6/22/2019 by Thomas

I switched my Hayward pump from 110 to 220VAC. Followed the instructions for the jumper settings. Pump runs fine, but I have had two starter capacitors, 61-193 MFD (BC-161), go out in just a few months. Should I switch to a higher voltage rating cap? Never had a cap fail when it was 110.
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/26/2019 by Industry Professional

What is the current voltage on the capacitor that you have?
 Reply


A  Answered on 6/25/2019 by Industry Professional

No, stay with the same rating on your capacitor. Unfortunately there is no way to determine why you have gone thru 2 lately. It should have nothing to do with the change in voltage as the mfg chose that specifically for the dual voltage motor. Your motor windings could be going bad/weak, it could be the new capacitors themselves.

My 1hp Hayward pump would only hum and not start. I replaced the starter capacitor with the BC-161 I ordered from y’all. Now the motor runs for a few seconds and trips the breaker. Do I need a new motor or is there a run capacitor I don’t know about?
 Reply

A  Answered on 3/29/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Dennis. Some motors are designed with either a start or run capacitor or both.   If the motor is now tripping the breaker, it will need to be replaced.

I have a 1.6 hp Hayward super pump. The pump starts, but within seconds trips the breaker. I have changed the circuit that it plugs into, and it tripped that one as well. When I took the housing off I could smell burning but couldn’t locate any singed wires. Could it be the capacitor? If not, is there something else I can look at?
 Reply

A  Answered on 8/7/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Jen. The issue could be the capacitor or the winding. Use the following guides How to Test a Pool Pump Capacitor or How To Test a Pool Pump Motor - Winding Resistance to determine why your motor is tripping the breaker.

Hi, Unfortunately we do not have what size capacitor is used on the A.O. Smith 3 H.P Square Flange Motor (SQ1302), you will need to provide us the specs off of the old capacitor.

I need a capacitor for a Jacuzzi pool pump, A. O. Smith 1.5 hp 230/115v 3450RPM. Can you tell me the correct part number for this product?

Bryan, We will need to know the MFD and voltage of the capacitor or the catalog or part number of the motor to find the correct replacement capacitor.

I need to replace the start Capacitor on my A O Smith C48K2PA105C5 MOTOR. It's 115/230 1hp USQ 1102 and the rating are unreadable on the capacitor. How can I find out what rating I need?

Hi Steve, yes this is the correct start capacitor for the USQ1102 motor.

Please note that capacitors store an electric charge and should be handled with the utmost caution and care. We do not encourage handling a capacitor without any type of safety measures in place and highly recommend contacting a professional service company for repair/replacement. For those that feel comfortable changing the capacitor here's  >How to replace a pool pump capacitor. In order to match up the capacitor you will need more specifications on the capacitor. You will need to match the voltage, the MFD, whether or not the capacitor is a >run or >start type and the actual dimensions of the capacitor body.

Motor Would Only Make Humming Sound But Not Start

Written on 3/31/2019 by Guest

First, as always, turn off the power to the pool pump at your panel and then verify it by using a voltage tester.

Next, remove the two screws holding the cover over the motor.

Remove the clamp over the old capacitor and note the wire placement; then take a screwdriver with a plastic or rubber handle and touch the terminals together (pro tip if you are worried, hold a paper towel between you and the capacitor). This will short out the capacitor and discharge any voltage stored in it. Then with a pair of pliers pull the wire clamps off.

Attach the wires back onto the capacitor (It should have 2 yellow wires on one terminal and a red and white wire on the other).

Put the capacitor back in place with the plastic guard over the terminals and then tighten the clamp.

Put the cover back on, then go turn the main breaker back on.

My Pump Motor Capacitor Need to be replaced

Written on 6/27/2018 by Guest

I removed the motor from from the pump housing. I then removed the cover from my pump motor. Locating the capacitor, I carefully discharged the old capacitor and the new capacitor to prevent shocking. I removed the old cap connections and wired the new cap placing into the same spot. I put the cover back on the motor and reattached the motor to the pump. I plugged in the pump.
