This is usually an indicator that the high speed on your pump is bad.

Is their not two elements, one at the top too? If it is tripping on the high limit switch it could be the thermostat Try checking the grounding of the unit.

Power trips out when jets are switched on


I'm going on somewhat limited information here not knowing if the tub is newly installed or if this is a spa that has been working in the past and just started doing this. It would be helpful to know if this is a recently installed pump as well. That said here are a few things to check.
If it's a new install: Your electrician has more than likely wired the spa incorrectly. Be sure that the spa pack has 220V going into the pack and that the GFCI is wired correctly.
If it's an old spa with a new problem: A lot of times a bad heater element can cause a spa to trip the breaker. If you have a bad element the spa will operate normally for about a minute when you turn the power on, then trip the breaker as soon as the heater kicks in.
If it only trips the breaker when the pump is turned on to high speed, more than likely there is a problem with the wiring of the pump or the relay on the pump itself.

Disconnect both hot leads from the breaker at the box. Using an ohmmeter measure the resistance to ground or the neutral bar in your box. If the resistance is LESS than about 50 K you have excessive leakage current. It is unlikely the motor is the problem. I would check the wiring and switching for the leakage. Now to the second problem: If you switch between speeds while the unit is running, the GFI will LIKELY trip. This is normal as you create a massive transient that the GFI PROBABLY can't handle. There are a couple things to try: One is using a two pole control switch and turn off the pump before "switching gears" ... as an electrical engineer I can't explain this unless you can understand electrical transients AND capacitive coupling between the windings and the case of the motor. I realize you may have a combination speed and on off switch so you MIGHT have to add a switch. Ideally I would want a relay for on/off near the breaker that momentarily disconnected before shifting gears. The next fix possibility involves a trick we use to control transients in electronics. This involves noise control by using a toroid around the pair of hot wires. This MIGHT take several turns through a good sized ferrite toroid with both the hots in the same direction, side by side. This forms what we call a "Bi-Filar" choke. Look that up on Google to understand the principle... it essentially helps balance the currents in the hots and isolates them from ground for transients.

Hi I have a jacuzzi. I would like to connect it DIY


You can get 2 types of Jacuzzi baths, 1 with just a pump which just jets the water via a small pump or 1 with the pump and elements that heats the water aswell as pumps the water through the jets. Because the 1 with the elements has a higher amp rating you need to run a cable from your distribution board to your bath but the 1 without the elements you will be able to tap off the nearest socket to the bath, you will be coming from your socket to a fused spur outlet, it would be better to get a switched fused spur outlet as you will be able to isolate the bath when not in use just by switching off the switch. from the spur outlet you will be wiring it into your motor on the bath, it should say the rating of the pump in amps on the tally plate of the motor or on the manual. For example if it says the motor draws 2 amps you will be putting a 3 amp fuse into your spur outlet so if there is a fault with the motor the fuse will blow instead of tripping the whole socket circuit. All jucuzzi baths has to be connected to the RCD side of your distribution board. If you are tapping off a socket don't worry about the RCD because all sockets should be on the RCD anyway, to check that the socket is connected to the RCD plug something into the socket you are tapping off of and press the test button on the RCD, the RCD should trip and while this is tripped check the lamp or whatever you plugged in shoud be off. The Fused spur should be fitted outside of the bathroom.

Try disabling the heater and recheck. Unplug each component to control pack to identify which is causing gfci trip. This will isolate problem units or controls.

It might be that the breaker is overloaded and it's no longer supporting the load of all the appliances together.If you do not want to change your breaker you can still use your oven by switching off other appliances that is running while you are using the oven
