Changing the voltage on a GT15

Postby lwparchive » Tue Nov 06, 2012 5:03 pm

Can you email the wiring diagram for the Gould GT15 pump that I bought from you last month. I want to wire it for 230 volts. Moving the black connector has me confused. Is the left plug in for 115v and the right plug in for 230v? Please help.

Sir,

If you remove the black plug, you will see two male spade connectors. The black plug has two wires with corresponding female spade connectors. If the plug is placed on the two male spade connectors, then the motor will be wire for 115 volt. If you remove the plug and move it so that only on female spade connector is placed on the furthest male spade connector, then the motor will be wired for 230 volt.

So, the motor you have does not have the black plug with the two wires going into it??? You just have the two wires??

Okay, for 115 volt connection. You have 3 spade connectors on the cop side of the connection board. You will be working with the TOP two spade connectors. The white wire with the black tracer goes on the very top spade connector and the black wire goes on the second from the top spade connector. If you want 230 volt, then the black wire goes on the very top spade connector and the white with black tracer does not get connected.
