Replacing a very noisy and old Magnatek C Frame Motor on my Hayward Super II Pump. Motor label attached. I’d like a energy efficient motor instead of standard but not Dual speed. I also need a new seal ... Pool guy said PS201 (?). What motor do you recommend and are there good/better/best options on seals? What are options? Lastly, do I need to buy anything else with the motor for ideal installation and motor operation? Thanks!

Hi, Kathy. Unfortunately, there is not a more energy efficient option available to replace the B130 motor. The Hayward Super II Pump Tune Up Kit - GOKIT2 or GOKIT2SALT is the suggested item needed when replacing a motor. As for the replacement seals Good - AS-1521, Better - PS-3868, and Best - SPX1600Z2

Hi, Ariel. We do recommend getting a tune up kit which will be specific to your pump housing, not the motor.

I read on other website that I can buy a Go-Kit or just replace the motor. Do I still need to purchase a Go-Kit if I decided to buy a new motor from you? Please provide me with the right motor and GO-Kit. Recommendations? Thank you,

A  Answered on 10/2/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Ariel. A GO-Kit is still required when replacing the motor. I will need to know the model of the pump housing in order to locate the correct GO-KIT.

Just pulled a AO Smith 2HP motor off my spa. Model K48N2N104. It is the same pump that is on the pool section so I used it to replace the pool side pump as it was hardly ever used. (running like a charm) Will this motor replace the one I just removed? The pump is a Hayward Super II that is 15 years old.

A  Answered on 8/16/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Actually, the correct replacement motor is part number ST1202

I just replaced an old pool pump that was 1 hp 1.65 sf with a hayward super pump 1.5hp/1.0 sf. The flow is definitely not as strong. The piping is 1.5" would it be advisable to install this motor to get flow back? If not can you please direct me to a pump with a 1.65 total hp?
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/10/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Josh. What is the model of the pump that was replaced? They're different types of pumps as explained in our Which is Best: High Head or Medium Head Pumps? To upgrade your Hayward Super Pump to a 2hp, you will have to replace the Impeller - SPX2615C and the Shaft Seal - SPX1600Z2

I have a Hayward (AO Smith model K48M2N111). It sounds like the bearings are going out of it. Do you sell the replacement bearings or what pump motor would replace it?
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/9/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Jarrod. The K48M2N111 motor uses the 203 Bearing and 204 Bearing. You can use this B230SE or the UST1202 as a replacement.

Hi, Anna. There is the Hayward Northstar 4000 Series Pumps (Pre-2003) Tune Up Kit - GOKIT66 but only for pump manufactured before 2003. If your pump was manufactured after then you will have to purchase the parts separately.

Hello, I currently have the UST1202 motor for my SP3015X20AZ Super ii pump. I need to replace the motor since the bearings are shot, and the motor housing itself is rusted and old. Would this motor work for my setup? I would like an Energy Efficient motor if it fits and is available. Also, what other parts do I need for the install? Thanks!

Rich, Yes, this would be a suitable replacement. Please be sure to replace the seals when you replace the motor. For the SP3015X20AZ, you will need the GOKIT2

I have a Hayward Super II pump with a 2 hp motor. All of the markings are worn off. I believe it is a model SP3020EEAZ. It was installed in 2004. This is the second motor. The motor is starting to make noises (like a bearing is going). I was looking at your "A.O. Smith 2 H.P Pool Motor Energy... (B230SE) - 5213X" . Will this motor fit my pump? What other parts should I replace while I have it apart? Do you have instructions on how to replace a motor? Are any special tools needed?
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/22/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Steve. The B230SE replacement motor will not work with model # SP3020EEAZ. Your replacement options are p/n ST1202 and B130 along with the Hayward Super II Pump Tune Up Kit - GOKIT2 or GOKIT2SALT. You can use our How To Replace the Motor on Your Pool Pump to assist you in replacing the motor.

i currently have a ao smith motor that is almost exactly, specs wise, as the b230se you have in stock but mine has a part number of 7-184983-23 and is 56y instead of 56j. is there a different or can i use your b230se 56j to replace my 56y motor? i'm using hayward superflo pumps, i believe. thanks for your help.
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/13/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

If you have a Pentair SuperFlo you need the 56Y or 48Y frame, the 56J frame will not fit. If you want to attach a picture of your motor label and your complete SuperFlo pump just so I can confirm it is a SuperFlo so we can get the correct shaft seal and motor label so I can get you the correct replacement motor.

I am replacing a CAT# B230SE, PART#184983 with similar and have a couple of questions: 1. which shaft seal kit would you recommend, maybe you guys could offer this as optional for each pump when ordering? 2. are there other pumps which can be used to replace that pump, full rated for example?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/24/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

Hello- There are two options when it comes to your replacement. Obviously, there is the Motor 56j Thrd Up 2 Hp (b230se), or you can use Motor 56j Thrd Full 1.5 Hp (b129). As far as the shaft seal, motors are a generic replacement item. As far as the seal kits, motors can fit many different pumps, and the seals are specific to those pumps, not the motor. To find the correct seals you would need to know the model of your pump.

Good afternoon David, It depends on the service factor of your motor(s.f.). If it says 1.35 you need a Full-rated SN1202. If it says 1.2 it is UP Rated USN1202. If it is just 1 then yes, that's the one you should getMotor 56j Thrd Up 2 Hp (b230se)

The "Thrd up" in the description of part number 5213x means Threaded (speaking about the Shaft of the motor) and Up-rated (in reference to the power of the motor).

?     Asked on 2/13/2015 by John

I need to replace an AO Smith B809 motor. All of the specs look identical to this one (Y56J, 230V, 2hp, etc). Can this replace my motor? My current one is 11.5" long without the shaft. Is this the same quality? Thanks!
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/16/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

John,I would not suggest using the 5213x. That is an uprated motor. The B809 is a Fullrate motor, the difference would be 5213x has a total hp of 2.0 whereas the B809 is  2.4hp. The lengths would be similar as well. I would also recommend getting a shaft seal or tune up kit. But you would need to get the model of the pump, not te motor to determine that.

Replacing a pool pump motor is not as difficult as it seems. You can try looking here. If you need help figuring out what the information on your label means. If you are still having difficulty figuring it out you can call us at our toll free number or you can send us a photo of your motor label here.

I'm trying to find a replacement motor for my pool pump but my model number doesn't match what you have listed as the model number. My model number begins with a C48 and yours begins with an SP. Please help.
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/18/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

What we have listed on our chart pages is the pump model number. The model number you have will just identify the motor. If you look on the plastic housing on the pump there should be a sticker which will have the pump model number. You can usually find this by the discharge port on the pump. Once you locate it you can choose the correct replacement motor. Be certain to change the shaft seal and gaskets as needed. You can use our >How to guide if you need help.

Why should I purchase a Tune Up Kit?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/12/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist 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.

?     Asked on 1/12/2012 by Guest

Why do I need to purchase a new shaft seal?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/12/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist 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?
 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.

Old motor needed to be replaced

Written on 5/1/2018 by Guest

Researched how to replace a pool pump motor and watched the videos related to this on INYO Pools website. I spoke to an INYO pools associate to verify my choice and found a motor that is more energy efficient than my old failing motor. I added the new motor shaft seals and installed the new motor per the videos on replacing a pool pump motor. Overall a fun project that I was easily able to do myself.

Were these instructions helpful?
