?     Asked on 10/4/2022by J

What is the GPM flow rate for this unit. Thanks
 Reply

A  Answered on 10/5/2022 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hello J, So flow rates will vary depending on the pump housing model that this motor will be mounted to. Here is the Hayward Super pump which uses essentially the same type of motor and and the Pentair Superflo that also does and you can view the flow charts to see the difference. Essentially you will want to confirm your front pump housing model in order to look up its particular flow chart document to confirm its specific flow rate.

Hi, I’m looking for a replacement motor for my older Jandy SHPM 2.0 Pump (Motor specs attached). The current motor is still running, but I’m looking for more energy efficient alternatives e.g. dual speed, or even variable speed. However, I would also like to reuse the existing pump housing/body, and other parts, if possible. Just recently replaced the impeller, diffuser, and seals. Which motor do you recommend?

Hi, My water pool Pump broken and I think it is from the motor/coil portion as I could see spark coming out of this part. Pump's brand is Stealth SHPF 2.0 which is 2 HP. I wonder if this motor is compatible with what I have installed on the current broken pump. I have attached the pictures and I appreciate if you could help me with that.

A  Answered on 1/19/2022 by InyoPools Product Specialist Rich N.

Hi Amir, your SHPF2.0-2 pump left the factory with a 2-speed motor; the motor in the picture is single speed which we are unable to offer you due to the Title 20 compliance laws in California.  The good news is that the original replacement motor for the pump (this B2984 motor) is compliant.  Your other option would be to get this variable-speed ECM27SQU motor which can really save you on your electric bill when it is set up properly.

It is possible to go up in HP, but I do not recommend it.  Pumps are made for a certain HP.  So the internals like the impeller and diffuser are made for that HP.  So all of those would need to be replaced.  You also would need to make sure your filter can handle the GPM of the new HP pump.  So you might have to upgrade your pool filter.As far as motors go from China.  Most motors come from China nowadays.  The issue is buying off of Amazon and not knowing who is selling that motor.  The sellers on Amazon want cheap products.  We have found a lot of issues with the swimming pool pumps, filters, and motors being sold on Amazon

Hi Reed, the correct replacement motor for the 196251 motor is this B2859 Challenger Replacement Motor. You will also need a Pentair Challenger Seal Kit when you replace your motor.

 Reply

A  Answered on 6/2/2021 by InyoPools Product Specialist Danny R.

I do not recommend changing your motor from 2HP up to 3HP.    You also need to change out other internal parts like the impeller.  You also need to know if you pool filter can handle the new GPM of the 3HP motor.  I would suggest buying a 3HP pump and making sure you have a compatible filter if you go this route.  If not I would stick with the 2HP.

Hello David.  Thank you for the pictures.  From the pump lid, C3-139P1, I was able to determine that you have a Stay-rite Dura-Glas or Sta-rite Max-E-Glas.  If you currently have a 2 horsepower motor, the Century B855 is the appropriate replacement.  A new shaft seal should be installed when the motor is replaced.  I would suggest a tune-up kit, GOKIT6, which also contains rubber gaskets and o rings that should also be replaced.  The GOKIT54 can also be used by simply removing the copper cone insert from the seal plate.  At times, working with the copper cone insert can be problematic.  I would recommend the GOKIT54.  Tune Up Kit Sta-Rite Dura-Glas & Max-E-Glas Pump 1998 To Present - GOKIT54  Century 2.0 HP Square Flange 56Y Up Rate Motor - B855

Yes you can but you may have a little bit of re-plumbing as the plumbing ports are not in the exact same location. You will also lose a little bit of flow by going down from 2 HP to 1.5 HP so if your pump is powering spa jets, water features or solar you may not want to consider the downgrade in HP.

Hi Matthew, if you are wiring your motor 230V then yes this B855 motor would be the correct motor. If you are wiring your motor 115V then you will require this B2859 Replacement Pool Motor We do always suggest a Seal Kit when replacing a motor.

Hi. Does the B855 Centurion motor have a start capacitor in addition to the run capacitor? And if so do you stock start capacitors? As I understand it the run capacitor is mounted on the top, (under the steel hood or cowling). (My problem is the motor is reluctant to start but if i turn the motor drive shaft at the rear of the motor it spins up and runs fine) Thanks.

Unfortunately the B855 is not a compatible replacement for your B129. Please click here to be directed to your single speed model motor replacement. Also, most commonly the reason for a motor to hum and not move any water is due to either the start capacitor failing or the motor has failed.

So these seals can easily be compromised if touched, wet or dirtied on the ceramic sides of the seal. You may be able to clean it off with rubbing alcohol and a clean cloth. Also, that seal requires some silicone to be used on the seal plate where that portion of the seal is placed into the seal plate.

Most likely the two yellows are hot however I would recommend using a multimeter on those leads to test and be sure. If so, then you are correct that at 220/240 voltage each lead would not matter if either is on terminal 1 or 2.

Hi Andres, You can but you would also need to upgrade your impeller. Do you know which pump you have, it should say Pentair Whisperflo, Challenger, Dura Glas, etc..

Hello, I have a Jandy Stealth 2.0 HP pump and motor, AO Smith Century Centurion. I have selected this motor based on the information on the motor label matching all the information on my motor. However, my Jandy pump manual says my SHPM 2.0 motor is model B865SE and your motor is model B855. Also your list of "Commonly used on" does not include Jandy, and the B865SE is not listed in the Alternate Part numbers. Is this motor a suitable replacement? Thanks for any help you can provide.

I have this motor. When I turn it on the motor hums and the shaft spins slowly. Then after about 20 seconds the safety in the motor cuts it off. I replaced the capacitor but still same result. When off the shaft spins freely in either direction. Any ideas? Motor is 5 years old. Was running 10-12 hours a day until it stopped a few days ago. Thanks

Is this motor already preset for 230 volts or is there a switch that has to be placed for 230 volts? Also I have a red, black and green ground coming to the motor. Would the Red and the black wires go to L1 and L2? The reason I ask is because internally there is a white wire on L2. The terminals in the motor are "B", "L1", "L2", and "A". Your help is greatly appreciated.
 Reply

A  Answered on 8/31/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Ed, The motor comes set for 230 volts. When wiring the motor for 230 volts both lines are115 volts so it will not matter if the "red" or "black" wire goes to "L1" or "L2". The "green" would go to the ground.

Hi Jesse, You would need (1) 304 Bearing (6304) for the Shaft End and (1) 203 Bearing (62032RS) for the Opposite Shaft End. It is also recommended that you replace the shaft seal and the o-rings within the pump housing.

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.

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.

Leaking pump

Written on 5/19/2022 by Guest

Last time I had the pump replaced it cost $800. I decided to try fixing it myself. I watched the videos a couple of times then went to work. The old pump was fine, I just needed to replace the gaskets, but I kept the new pump motor for quick replacement one the old one does give out.
The quote from my pool repairman was $300 unless I needed a new motor. Doing it myself I saved most of that $300.
It was easy as long as you follow the directions in the video.

Replaced the pump motor

Written on 11/3/2021 by Guest

INYO Pool provided complete step by step video instruction which made the replacement simple. HOWEVER, a couple of lessons learned...

1.) be sure to order the Go-Kit (sold separately)...and furthermore, make sure you order the correct kit. My pump requires a "square" housing gasket...seems like the round gasket is more common. I checked my local pool supply shops, no luck. So I had to order on-line which delayed my repair a few days (no bueno).
2.) the plate seal should just slip off once everything has been removed. My experience required a wee-bit of muscle to coax it off.

Shorting out the condenser was easier than lead to believe based on on-line instructions, but maybe I was just lucky. Take all the precautions and follow the video.

Make sure you have a good worktop to work on. Save your knees a little.

Challenger Pump Motor Squealing

Written on 3/22/2021 by Guest

After Texas freeze my Challenger 2hp pool pump started squealing pretty bad. I ordered a new 2hp motor from INYO Pools and had it shipped to my home. Step 1. After turning off the power to the pump pad and putting the multi-port in the closed position, I drained the pump and removed the motor and impeller assembly from the wet side of the pump, unhooked electrical connection to motor* and took assemble to work bench. 2. I took off the diffuser, impeller, and back plate off the old motor. 3. I installed back plate, new seals, impeller, and new impeller retaining screw onto new motor. 4. reinstalled diffuser and new diffuser o-ring and took assemble back to pool pad 5. connected electrical wires to new motor*, installed new housing o-ring, re-installed motor and impeller assemble back onto wet side of pump. 6. filled the strainer basket up with water. 7. put multi-port valve back into filter position, 8. Turned power back on to pool pad and turned on pump. 9. Checked for leaks.

*Make sure you are familiar with basic electrical connections before attempting this repair. If you are not, have a pool professional install the motor. It’s not worth saving a few bucks if your house burns down or worse yet, you severely injure yourself or get killed in the attempt to fix your pool pump.

My water level went below the skimmer line and my pool motor burned up.

Written on 8/20/2017 by Guest

Being a female and not all that hip on motor repair, I looked at many youtube repair videos. I knew what kind of motor I needed because I was replacing one and I wanted the same as I had. I ordered the motor and gasket pack and it arrived very quickly. So I turned off the electricity FIRST! then I disconnected the electrical connections to the motor. Took all the bolts out and took the motor off the pump parts. My main problem is the impeller had fused to the motor shaft which presented a big problem. Couldn't get it to unscrew. I did however finallyhave to demolish the impeller and had to dremmel the metal cap that was on the impeller to get it off. This was a very hard project. Took me several hours. But then I just looked at the videos again and put all the pieces back together per the videos. The youtube videos are amazing. Even someone inexperienced can do this repair with the step by step instructions. Also, very helpful is to take pictures of each step and what things look like and how wires are connected. You can refer back and say, oh, this goes like this and this was like this. Very smug with myself for having done this alone. So don't pay those pool people to do this for you. It may take a lot longer than the videos, but if you take your time and are careful and deliberate, you can get it done. Just remember the electricity!!!

Old motor burned up.

Written on 5/24/2017 by David G.

Pretty straight forward if you have basic skills and tools. The most difficult part for me was removing the impeller from the shaft on the old motor. It was so tight that I cracked the impeller with a pipe wrench (my bad). Had to order a new impeller and go buy a strap wrench that fit over the outer edge of the impeller to break it loose. The good thing about the Challenger motor is that you don't have to remove the back end and move internal parts to access the end of the shaft. (The INYO video uses a Hayward motor which is more involved.) It has a small plastic cover over the shaft end that sticks out the back of the motor. Easy to grip when turning the impeller. Otherwise the video shows just how simple it can be.
