Question about Pool & Spa
Bret Aquiline spa: Replaced Heater Element, New Pressure switch,
Two Heater contactors (buzzing), Heater Relay, and GFCI switch..
Everything runs as it should hi/low. Indicator switch on console lights
up ( +clicks) when calling for heat. There is No Heat, and the Heater
Light ( replaced new neon light; directly connects to the heater element), does not light. (Didn't check voltage at heater, but suspect its not getting power ?
Everything seems to run great, but no Heat. Can I jump the two wires together, that go directly into the pressure swith ( and bypass that switch) to see if I get heat: and can I do the same with the 2 wires going to the hi heat limit switch to bypass that to see if I get heat. HELP !
Heater contactors "buzzing": Do you mean normal buzzing or extra loud buzzing? Loud buzzing or chattering can be caused by low voltage to a contactor. If normal sounds, then probably the relays on the contactors is working, but the contacts may be stuck, or burned enough so as not to make contact. First, get a voltmeter and check for 240 volts AC at the heater contactor terminals. If the voltage is low, most likely you need to check the contactors further. Check for dirty contacts, clean if needed. If the contacts are not moving when energized, then you will probably need to replace one or both of the contactors.
