It depends upon what primary control you have. Some primaries have a connection just for the solenoid and others piggy-back it on the motor lead. One lead will always go to the neutral (white) bundle. If you post the model of the primary control Grady will likely have the proper answer.

Bob, check the install sheet for the pump. The solenoid is wired across the MOTOR connections so the solenoid opens when the motor starts.

A replacement primary control such as an R7284 would allow the solenoid opening to be delayed so the motor spins up to speed before the solenoid opens. Keep in mind for future if existing control needs replaced.

Oh... also pay attention to the 'one-pipe' / 'two-pipe' arrangement and install the bypass plug if using two-pipe, make sure the plug is NOT installed if using one-pipe.

hello trooper

there is a metal disc on the side of the housing do i remove it and run the wires from the solenoid through to the control and if so is there a grommet made to replace the disc? Does it mater which wire goes to which motor wire?

Thanks Bob

Bob,
It doesn't make a difference. One to black & one to white on motor connections.
They do make connectors that replace the disc.
Anywhere they sell electrical supply's.

Good Luck,

I would probably opt for a grommet of some sort, and if the cable is smaller than the grommet I would put some sealant around the cable to limit extra air flow into the opening.
