Question about Spa Parts Plus GFCI, Circuit Breaker, 40 Amp
Bought a used saratoga 10years old, worked great when i check it out, turned up on its side to move it, let it set for 2 months, hooked it up and it tripped the gfi, unplugged ext. units, stayed on, any thing I plugged in it tripped. replaced gfi with another ge, this time the light and the circulation pump would work without tripping the gfi. if I tried to plug in the pump or the blower, gfi trips. everything is dry under there, and has been. does the square D gfi work better, less sensitive, than the GE's? I now thinking that I may need to clean all connections to those motors, possibly corrided? FYi, the circulation pump is running with the heater and it came up to temp that I set with the control pad..
When an electric motor kicks on there is an in rush current called FLA(full load amps), it is usually about 125% of rated circuit amperage. Try a 2 pole 60 amp gfci circuit breaker and see if that solves your issue. Going up to this amp breaker will not be a fire hazard or cause any anomalies.
