Question about Pool & Spa
I disconnected all devices from control board at external connections and breaker still trips. Metered between neutral wire and one leg for power and show a short but the other. I suspect a bad board . Is there any other things I should check ?
Leaking heat element.
2 GFCI on same circuit.
Rat-chewed wire. Inspect wiring.
Nail through wire.
Melted wire nut in junction box.
Undersized wire and breaker has been overheating breaker, and breaker has gone bad.
Shorted breaker. Move wires to different same-size breaker.

Is there anything else on the same breaker? Is that the proper amperage for the pump? How long has the pump been in service? It may need to be cleaned as possible obstruction causing too much strain.

Sounds like your controller has sustained damage. You need to have a professional inspect it to determine what has gone wrong.

It is unlikely the Breaker is BAD, that just doesn't happen. To trip a breaker there MUST be an Overload, or a Short circuit, that's it. You will have to use a meter an troubleshoot the system. Something is very wrong..please use the links below to troubleshoot and repair. Please Be careful.
