I have a pool pump that I recently bought used to replace a failing pump. The motor is rated for either 115v or 230v (low/hi switch) operation.
My previous pump was wired with a 12 gauge line to a L5-20 125V 20A receptacle. So, I replaced the standard 110v three prong line on the new pump with the 12 gauge line.
Will having the 125v wired into the 115v pump leads cause a problem with the motor? Meaning, is that additional 10v going to burn out the motor?
