Hi, is this motor the exact same as the one we have in the photo attached? It seems like everything is matching except for 1 number, but I'm guessing it's just a newer model. If it is the same, do you sell the entire setup with impeller and parts already assembled so all we have to do is just replace the one we have with the new one? Thank you.

 Reply

A  Answered on 11/16/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi Matthew, the pump parts do not come with the motor already installed unless you were to purchase a completely new pump that will need to be plumbed in. If you need that can you send us a few photos of your pump so we can suggest the model? If so then please take a wide shot of the complete pump to include the pipes going in and out of the pump. To supply photos simply click the reply link below and upload your photos. Once we get those photos we can make the proper recommendation for your seal kit.

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?
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/28/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

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.

Yes, this is an actual A.O. Smith Century motor. Please view the warranty card here.

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.
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/29/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

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.

What is Service Factor?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/11/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist 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.
