    I purchased a used unit and want to make sure it's wired correctly (from the control unit circuit board to the contactor ).

    Red wire is connected to front of contactor
    Black wire is connected to the back of contactor and to L1 on contactor
    White wire is connected to L2 on contactor

    Is this correct? I'll check back in a.m.

    Where does the Red come from?

    All three wires come from the circuit board.

    What circuit board? Are you referring to a control box? If so, the red wire does not belong where you have it shown. As a matter of fact the control box should be after the contactor not before it.

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. The red, white and black 18 AWG wires in the pic are what I am asking about. They come from the circuit board inside of the Pumptec Plus box and connect to the contactor inside of the Pumptec Plus box.

    The photo does not tell me where the wires come from, so I uploaded this pic for you to study.

    Thanks Bob, I have that diagram in the pic you posted. All I need to do is verify that the red, white, black wires in my pic are connected correctly. I searched the Franklin Electric web site but I was unable to find what I need. I'll wait a couple of days for an answer here, if none I'll try contacting Franklin Electric.
    Thanks for everyones help.

    I don't think anyone can tell you if they are correct without seeing more in the picture.

    Well, I was hoping someone can look inside their Pumptec Plus (or upload a picture) and tell me if it's wired correctly. I would have to remove and disassemble the circuit board plastic cover to be able trace the wires. I can't do that at this point because I can still return it for a refund.
