Response to Hi Jean, this will not replace your 2.4 total horsepower SP3215Z1BE motor.  You would need the V-Green 2.7 HP Square Flange Variable Speed Motor - ECM27SQU.  The variable-speed motors have a smaller (48) frame but include a spacer to add to the motor mount to make up the difference in size.
