    This spa is very old, 25 years. It does not have any boards or read outs. I did find were the wire marked high speed goes to a relay but was not sure how to volt/amp check it to see if this is the problem. Julie

    Control box in brown, it only has wire going to what I believe is a relay. It does have a plastic tube which I can blow and be blower to come on and off but not the pump.

Clean the relay contacts on the board. Cut the power, ofcourse. Also, try switching the hot wire on the low side of the pump to the high side to rule out the pump.

    Jacuzzi system is analog then. Is control box blue in color? Does relay have just wires on it, or also a plastic tube hooked to it? Kirk

Spa overheats because no circulation during heating process


As I'm sure you know the low speed is the filtration & heating cycle.
If you've checked the terminals on the board and on the pump & there's nothing wrong. Use a voltmeter to test if each leg is getting the right voltage. If not its likely the motor is bad.

have you cleaned your filter recently. Sound like there may be a low flow error in low speed
either that or the start capacitor on your pump is bad and the pump will not come on in low speed unless you first give it a boost in high speed
anytime you ask for heat with insufficient flow there will be an error message

My pump works on low speed but not high speed


these are a bear to work on.. there are start switches inside of the motor, and will break if you even look at them wrong.(fragile) you can try compressed air to blow out the trash that might be in the switch..or unhook power cord of the motor from the motherboard and remove the pump and motor from the spa , bring it to your local pool pump moor repair guy with free testing have it tested. if removing wires from motor YOU MUST REINSTALL THEM EXACTLY AS THEY CAME OFF ! OR YOU WILL BURN UP THE expensive 2 speed motor .. jay Florida

Hello,I have an old jacuzzi vectra II hot tub (1988) 120 volt.the gfci on the unit trips every time the pump is on low speed with the thermostat calling for heat. there is no trip when there is no demand...


hi,

ok so when the pump is on high and the heater is running it doesent trip? you didnt say if it did. undo the heater leads so the pump is isolated completely. run the pump on the control centers gfci and see if it trips. if it does then try wiring directly - with an extension cord to a plug with a gfci in your house and see if it trips the gfci in your bathroom. if no trip inside house then bypass tubs gfci and run it with heater and pump through your bathroom gfci. if no trip then try and replace the tubs gfci, it gets pretty humid in the control center and gfci's have a semiconductor which which do fail after years of rough duty like that. if it trips the gfci in your house with the heater again it has a cracked heater element. craigslist always has old hot tubs and parts. you might have to buy a whole used old hot tub but that may be cheaper than a new heater box.

later

Jacuzzi Laser II: Problem with the Heater/filter setting. The jets come on when it's on this setting. When I turn it to Filter setting it's fine..when I turn it off the jets come back on What gives?


The jets will run while in the filtration / heating mode. If the spa is in the middle of the filtration cycle, the jets will stay on until the cycle time runs out. So, if the spa jets are on during this time, they are on for the full duration, 2-6 hours every 12. You can cycle the jet button to high, but when you try to turn them off, they will just go back on low.

Pump stops running on high speed


You have a magnetek motor and it is overheating and cycling its thermal overload. A local electric motor repair shop may be able to fix it however it will likely need to be replaced. It is to costly to repair the motor if the damage is in the windings.

Assuming at that low a horsepower it is 115V, the likely replacement motor is a catalog #BN37. We sell it for $157. You are usually better off replacing the seal when you replace the motor and most Jacuzzi pumps are either a 200 or 1000. They should be around $5.
