Hello Mustang - The first picture is correct if you're wiring your 1HP Super Pump motor on 115v. The black tab with the arrow is pointing to 115v. The hot wire will go to L1, the neutral will go to L2 and the ground to the green screw. 

I'd also like to give you an air high five for posting great pictures and making this easy.

Air five

Thanks Inyorob. But for the first  time when i come to the to the costumer house..another eletrician was working to install the pump before, so its one pole 20 amp breaker on 12awg circuit and was hot on l1 and neutral on l2, but the plug was on 230volts. the guys say to me the motor was so hot and runing for 10 minuts or more and trip the breaker..so he call me to check and i see the plug on 230 volts, so i just swicth the plug to 115 volts and the motor burning after 5 minuts runing. maybe when the guy put the plug on 230 volts, maybe its cause the damage..What do u think?? thanks again.

I did picture one for 115 set up and breaker trips right away pump won't even turn on. Checked to see if I had a dead short in line before pump and breaker held. I think there is a dead short in the pump or compactor is bad. How could this be possible with a brand new pump?

Hi Matt46,

It is possible your received a defective motor. Can you post a few photos showing your wiring to your motor as we can double check that you have everything wired properly?

Thank You
