The junction box has 4 wires 2 white,1 blue, 1 black. Which in the 6-8 hour cycle and 115F sun prying in your motor takes a toll on it's lifespan. Then I connected the ground wire. Also, make sure the tripper is on tight so it flips the switch on. If these don't seem to fit your motor, give us a call at 407-834-2200, and if you give us your motor model, we should be able to give you more specific instructions.
Not the safest way of doing things. If the brass bridge is removed, then the timer can be wired many ways to control multiple voltages, and then terminals 5 and 6 are independent. Tighten the screw with a screwdriver. Is the circuit breaker dedicated or shared with other devices? How much would both the pump and chlorinator pull together at 120V? In fact, I mentioned the impact on the house wiring because of this. Your motor wiring instruction should be printed on the motor label.
Hi, I would like to add a timer to my pool pump and my chlorinator. Measure the voltage on the wires going to your pool pump. With horsepower being constant, current has to drop in half through the whole winding, when you double the voltage. How did they do this before? When I put the Intermatic in it would not work. The green wire will be under the green screw to the far right. Connect the conduit to the thermal adapter.
The wiring is at times very old, brand new or somewhat old. I am rewiring my pool to replace the timers and add freezing controls. A dual voltage motor splits the pole windings so they can be fed differently. For 230V motors red and black are hot and green or bare is ground. InyoPools Product Specialist Dennis R.
I came back later to find the breaker tripped at the box and also tripped the breaker at the main panel in the house. Sometimes these switches have to be purchased separately. The red and black wires are both hot. If the windings are the same, then the complex impedance will be the same. The timer is advancing and will shut off the equipment with the copper turn off pointer.
Then why did you bring up your experience in the first place if it doesn't matter? InyoPools Product Specialist Dennis R. How would I wire it up just to see if it's still good? InyoPools Product Specialist Dennis R. Copy following link to identify timer,and then add a comment. I'm new to this so please excuse any stupid questions. When I move the block to the 230vac position it runs for about 10 minutes and then shuts off. The black plug is shifted in position so the black wire is attached to terminal 4 Line 2 L2 and the white wire is attached to terminal 5. Since the terminals are connected with brass bridge, terminals 5 and 6 can be considered same as terminals 1 and 2.
Which timer do you have? There is no manual switch incorporated in the packer head of any pool pump motor, to change winding configuration. So, unfortunately, our discussion in this thread diverted to the single focus of theoretical current in a parallel split winding situation and missed the real issue of problems with twice as much current before the parallel winding split in the motor -- we did talk about such currents outside the motor and the real-world higher current in the windings still unexplained unless the two winding configuration has overall lower impedance for some reason drawing more power overall into the motor or perhaps the split is uneven in resistance causing one winding to be higher in current -- this is speculation on my part. There is also lot of drivers out there with a driver license, that can not park in parallel. Series circuits divide voltage but have equal current through them. Rather than us try to make assumptions about your pump based on the pic of the wiring which is a bit difficult to figure-out all wired so closely , we really should be going from the pump to the timer. However, this timer installation is intended for a pump, not a heater. This wire will be turned on each time timer turns on, and 120Volts will power the 120V load.
Generally the tightwatt timer wires very similar to P1353 timer. Apply no voltage to the sprinkler timer terminals. I have 4 wires coming out of the motor. I am now thinking maybe he did not wire it correctly. Paragon terminal 1and5-bridged goes to Intermatic terminal 1 Paragon terminal 2 goes to Intermatic terminal 2 Paragon terminal 3 goes to Intermatic terminal 4 Paragon terminal 4and6-bridged goes to Intermatic terminal 3 Intermatic terminal A is not used in this case.
I still have wire that used to attach to motor and another that runs underground. Note: in this position the white arrow on top of the 2 prong black plug is pointing at the 115V label. Motors are protected by internal thermal protection. Check that the input voltage lines are connected to terminals 1 and 3 as shown in Step 14. This way the only device that needs a timer is the pump. I have a separate 110v wire that was switched from my guest house to turn the pool lights on.
