Most of our customers decide to tackle this project on their own and by following our video they complete this project in about an hour.

When replacing your motor we highly recommend a tune up kit which includes all the seals and gaskets for your pump.

Hi Peter, yes this is the correct replacement motor for your motor part number 168454. When replacing a pool motor we do suggest a Seal Kit. Could you send us a few photos of your pump so we can suggest the proper seal kit? 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.

I have a WhisperFlo Model WF-28 C pump and Century B855 2HP Frame Y56Y motor It leaks slightly from bottom. Will this fit as a replacement? Should I also try your seal repair kit first? Thanks
 Reply

A  Answered on 11/10/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi Sabri, yes, this is a correct single speed replacement motor for the original model WF-28. You will also need a Pentair Whisperflo seal kit when you replace your motor. We put together this Video on How to Replace a Pool Pump Motor which you may find helpful when you tackle this project.

Current motor is Century model B130 2 HP Frame X56J 230 Volts Part 0-159988-06. I believe it is burnt out. Sparks and "pop" at startup and trips breaker. It's about 7 years old and installed on Hayward Replacement Series RS2000 pump. Is this motor compatible? See photos.

Actually your single speed replacement motor will be the model 5224X that you can view by clicking here. If you need the seals as well you can use the GOKIT2 for a chlorine pool that you can view by clicking here for the GOKIT2SALT for a saltwater pool that you can view by clicking here

are the 48y and 56y square flange exactly the same size about 1/2 inches. will this motor square flange fit in the spx2700e sea; plate as usq1202. the 56y body is larger on the motor casing only not on the square flange, no problem with larger diameter body housing possible benefit
 Reply

A  Answered on 3/31/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Matt S.

The dimensions of the motor flange is the exact same between the 48Y and 56Y. The only difference being the diameter of the motor barrel. If the 56Y motor is a tight squeeze, motor pump motor stands have a small removable insert to give the motor enough room.

Hi Chris, Could you give us the information off of the motor for your current pump like HP, Amps, Volts, SF, Frame, Model #, etc.. Also could you give us the pump make and model information, common pump names would be Pentair Whisperflo, Pentair Challenger, Jandy Stealth, etc.. To supply this information click the reply link below, also if you could send a few photos those are always helpful as well. If you send photos then take a close up shot of the motor label as well as a wide shot of the complete pump to include the pipes going in and out of the pump.

Is this motor a good replacement for a Jandy Pro Series model # SHPM 2.0-2 pump?
 Reply

A  Answered on 3/20/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Pete, No this is not the proper replacement motor for the Jandy Pro Series model # SHPM 2.0-2 pump. You will require the Century B983 Motor which is the direct replacement motor. We put together this Video on How to Replace a Pool Pump Motor which you may find helpful when you tackle this project. We also suggest a shaft seal when replacing your motor If the serial # on your pump is Before P08FF0001 then you will require this Old Style Jandy Shaft Seal and If the serial # on your pump is After P08FF0001 then you will require this New Style Jandy Shaft Seal

    Do you have an inexpensive motor for replacement for the Jandy Pro Series Model #SHPM 2.0-2?
     Reply

    • Commented on 3/20/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

      Hi Pete, the SHPM 2.0-2 references a two-speed motor so if you are ok with going with a single-speed motor then yes this PL2855 Motor would work as an inexpensive option for replacement. Please note that the PL2855 is set up for 230V operation which was the same the SHPM 2.0-2 pump.

          Hi Pete, yes the seal recommendation would be the same, based on your serial # you will require this New Style Jandy Shaft Seal thanks so much!

I have a Pentair 340038 that has a 1HP motor 196238 mated to it. my system is only running at 10 psi and I would like to increase it to clean my pool more effectively. will this 2HP pump fit?
 Reply

A  Answered on 9/14/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Matthew. A filtration system running at 10 PSI is okay. In order to increase the pump's water flow, you will have to make sure your system is larger enough to handle the water flow and change the motor, impeller, and diffuser of the pump to all match along with the pump seals. All parts are listed on the Pentair SuperFlo Pump Parts Diagram.

Pump motor went out. Needed replacement

Written on 5/23/2020 by Guest

Took pictures of my pump housing and sent to inyopools to identify proper motor model for pump housing. Received motor. Had questions about wiring and called Inyopools customer service and they walked me through proper wiring. Viewed DIY Video on Inyo site on replacing this motor. Was lot easier than I thought. Definitely would do it again.

Were these instructions helpful?

Motor was wronging hot

Written on 5/19/2020 by Guest

Purchased 2 of these 2HP motors, each dedicated, one for spa spillway, and the other for the waterfall. This Sunday my pool technician opened the pool, and asked him to installed these new motors on my existing Waterway SVL56 pumps, one was dead and I decided to replace both.

After he got them installed with new shaft seals and replaced pump o-rings, one of the two motors started running hot right off the get go, while the other was fine. My pool technician who has 30+ years of experience rechecked the wire and pump internals on that one, found nothing wrong and motor was running very hot and after 20-30 minutes it would shut itself off and be extremely hot.

With pump intervals confirmed to be fine, I looked at the power feed and breaker. Read the voltages, 124.6V out of each leg and combined 247v from the wire ends connecting to the pump while running and also when wires were but connected. Read the same voltage at the breaker and the amp reading matched the label as well.

Basically tried everything one could try and at the end have no doubt one if the motors is defective. Took it apart again, took pictures of the motor mouth with impeller out to upload along with pictures of the labels, required by INYO pools to start the warranty replacement process. Hope they can rush the replacement motor to me in time for the weekend. Wish this wasn’t the case, cause the other motor is running perfectly and these are quiet pumps in general.

Were these instructions helpful?
