I just want to make sure this is the replacement for my Hayward pump. The numbers look to match what I have. The numbers on the pump housing are gone. What else will I need?
Yes this motor is the correct replacement motor and you will also require this Hayward Super Pump Seal Kit If you live in California please let us know as you will require a different motor. We put together this Video on How to Replace a Pool Pump Motor which you may find helpful when you tackle this project.

If I'm using this pump and my pool is about 17,500 gallons with 6 ft in the deep end and 3 ft in the shallow end, how many hours a day do I need to run my pump? My GPM is 36.

This looks like same pump. What seals do I need?

I have a B228S ( I can't tell if there was another letter after the S on the label) motor with a U56J frame. Is there a difference in a 56J frame and a U56J frame?
Hi, Wayne. Yes, it appears that the "E" is missing from your model. There is no difference between a 56J and U56J frame.
Two years ago we had our pool motor (B228SE) replaced. During the beginning of May of this year we turned on the filter system to get the pool ready for summer. At the Beginning of June the motor started to make a lot of noise but it still ran. Our neighbors complained about the nose so we had it replaced again. The first motor lasted about 7 years. The resent replacement lasted two seasons of 6 months each. How long should your motors last?
These motors are original A.O. Smith/Century motors and average a life expectancy of approximately 3-7 years. There may be other variables that contribute to a motor failing prematurely. You may want to have a technician inspect the system to see if there are other factors involved.
I bought a B228SE motor last year and this after trying to oprn my pool the motor runs for about 10 minutes and shuts off. Motor appears to over heat.
It is possible that the impeller that you are using with the motor is rated for a higher horse power one. This would be a heavier design and can be straining the motor. Please confirm the part number on the impeller is the one needed to be used with that motor.
Hi ...I bought 5211X from you last year and it was fine, but it will not start this year. It turns freely by hand ... I replaced hot wires coming from switch .... it is getting power (used voltage detector to confirm) .... no hum or anything ... I switched the capacitor from an old pump with same results ... nothing helps ... any ideas I could try? ....... Thanks ... Jay
Hi, Jay. Based on your description of what you have done, it sounds like the motor is dead.

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) Motor for Pool Pump
Reviewed By: Billy B. from Lily, KY ()
Pros: Quiet, Easy to Install.
Cons: Paper instructions could be a little more detailed but lots of videos available for the install.
I purchased a new motor for my pool pump this year. The old motor was still working but it was so loud it was very annoying. I purchased the 56j, 1 Hp, (b228se). It certainly solved the problem. The motor is quiet and runs great. As recommended by the company, I also replaced the seal and boy was it ready for a replacement.
