Questions & Answers

I have a older swamp cooler and am not sure what size the motor is. If it is 1/3 hp can I replace it with the 1/2 hp?

Asked by: Lou
Yes, it will actually increase your CFM output.

Is the 1/2 hp motor to "weak" for my cooler?

I replaced the 1/2 hp motor on my swamp cooler and after a month the motor started to make a whining/grinding noise to I returned it to Lowes and bought a motor from Home Depot. It turns out they are the same brand. Now the new motor is doing the same thing. Is it just the motors are "cheap" or do I need a 3/4 hp motor?
Asked by: Al
Dial has had issues, A O Smith or Century are usually higher quality.

Replaced with this 3/4 from a previous 3/4 but now my breaker keeps tripping.

Should I go back and get the 1/2?
Asked by: MJ
The breaker trips when the amperage exceeds it's rating. (I'm assuming the breaker is 15 amps.) The cooler should be the only device on the circuit; let's assume it is. The 3/4hp motor should draw 10.5 amps of current. The cooler pump draws significantly less, usually less than 1 amp (The pump's amperage rating should be printed on the pump.) Let's say your pump draws 2 amps. 10.5 amps for the blower motor plus 2 amps for the pump equals a total of 12.5 amps. That's less than the 15amps the breaker is rated at so you should be good. HOWEVER, certain conditions can cause your motor to draw more than 10.5 amps. Typically, the ductwork is the culprit. Your cooler is probably rated to bring at least 5000 cubic feet of air into your house every minute. That's a lot of air. If your ductwork constricts the flow of air because it's too small for the job it becomes harder for the motor to turn the blower. That increases the amps the motor draws. If the amperage increases by more than 2.5 amps, your total amperage will exceed 15 amps and the breaker should trip to prevent the wiring from getting too hot and starting an electrical fire. (NEVER replace a breaker with another breaker rated for more amps! The wiring determines the breaker size.) This increase in amps is also not good for the motor. The solution is to increase the size of the motor pulley. This will result in turning the blower a little slower but will also reduce the amperage on the motor. Most cooler motor pulleys are adjustable for exactly this reason. Detailed information about the procedure for making this adjustment can be found online and is usually in the installation instructions but it's not something you want to attempt unless you have a solid understanding of all the factors in play as well as experience using the amp function of a voltmeter. It's significantly more dangerous than taking a voltage reading. In fact, unless your cooler is installed by a licensed HVAC contractor or a very good installer, chances are that this adjustment was never performed. A lot of guys will simply increase the pulley size until the breaker stops tripping even though there could be a defect in the ductwork that reduces the efficiency of your system as well as shortening the life of the motor. You can replace the motor with a 1/2hp motor and stop the breaker from tripping because a 1/2hp motor only draws about 8.5 amps. That's not a good idea though because the 1/2hp motor is going to be overworked even worse and will not last long. Plus your cooler will suffer a noticeable drop in performance. Your best move is to either read up until you feel comfortable dealing with the advanced issues of an install or call a pro. Hope this helps. Andy P. Denver, CO 20+ years experience
