Tub heater kicking out

I have a 110 Jacuzzi brand 250 gallon hot tub and I get a
blinking light I think indicating it is overheating and this
stays on. No controls will work. The heating element is
good and I removed the filter to see if that was restricting
things with no change. The only way to jog it out of this
mode is to open the cover and let it slam down and it will
start heating again. If I go through the modes again jets,
light,and heat it will kick out again and I have to slam the
lid. I have tried to tap the thermostat and other
components individually but only slamming the lid resets the
tub. It worked great for 10 years before this problem. Any
idea what the problem is.
I also found another way to reset the pump so it heats and circulates. There are a black and a red wire going from the top right corner of the control panel to a sensor that sits on the heating element housing. tapping the element did nothing but disconnecting it at the control panel or at the sensor and re-connecting it resets the heater. I also disconnucted the thermostar wire which uses a phone cord type conection in the controle pannel which did not reset the heater.
Thanks Gavin

Sounds like a part is bad on the control pack. Whatever gets 'jiggled' when you slam the door down is most likely the bad part.

Jacuzzi hot tub will not reach temp pumps do run?


If your hot tub is running but NOT heating then you need to look at a couple of things.
First, on the topside, is the heat indicator light on?
If it is on and the tub is not heating then the temp sensor or the high limit sensor is not working and need to be replaced.

I have a new Jacuzzi tub with a Rapid In-Line Heater. When I fill the tub the water the initial temp is 67 degrees. The heater only increases the temp to 71 degrees. What is wrong with the heater ,if...


The bath heater you have is not designed to HEAT water - they only Maintain what you start with.
You need to start the bathtub with the hot water you want. It will only heat about 1-2 degrees an hour.

The hottub keeps kicking the circuit breaker off.


Either the breaker is bad or you have an electrical problem. Unless you know how to work with electrical problems call for service. If you unplug the hot tub and plug a lamp or hair dryer into the outlet does the breaker trip? If yes, call an electrician. If the outlet is fine call for service on the hot tub.

Overheating problem


It sounds like the problem is in the main control box. Since the tub shuts down after reaching 110 degrees, the high temp sensor is doing its job. This sounds like a job for a qualified professional. Do get a price for the service call as they are usually expensive. Circuit boards start at 200.00 and go up.

Jacuzzi Hot Water Heating Capacity


Depending on how you heat the hot water, whether gas or electric, is a missing detail in your problem, but if it is electric then your problem is the size, being only 40 gal, and needing probably about that to fill the tub, will always lead to your current position.
If the hot water heater is gas, the chances of it keeping up are slightly better, but again things like the temperature of the water leaving the tank, any mixing valves, etc. will effect the water temp at your tub.  Before raising any temps, make sure you follow local code, as not to scald yourself or others.

Hi JOEY JIGSAW,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: 2ND MOTOR ON TUB IS HUMMING BUT NO WATER MOVMENT REPLACED WATER TODAY #1 MOTOR IS WORKING IN LOW AND HIGH SPEED BUT #2 MOTOR IS NOT KICKING ON

Definately an electrical problem. First check the switches, if you find a bad switch replace it. Check the wire connrctions. A bad connection will cause great frustration. If you've been carefull with the first two steps and it's still not working it's time to see if # 2 motor has siezed up. Do this only if you know what you're doing. It requires disconnecting the wires to the motor and applying 110 volts from another source directly to the motor wires. If the motor just hums and gets hot, it's time to replace it or take it to a small motor repair shop. It might be wise to check the Repair Directory for a repairman.

Feel free contact me again!
