Question about Pool & Spa
Power on tp of contactor none on bottom
Posted by Anonymous on
Had same problem K-Star 10 both contactors, Check all your connections, I found 2 loose. If the contactor closes and can't get enough power the voltage drops, contactor starts to chatter. Loose connections also cause arcing and fires. The manual says do not store clorine in the same room.
I took the contactors out, to the bench, applied 208volts to the coil and beat on them till they stopped acting up. Put them back and they work. They are very ugly on the inside I will replace them as soon as I can find new ones on Monday..

Hard to saw from here, but I assume you have a book on this, find your hi limit switch, it will have a reset button on it. It will be behind a rubber plug on the housing but is hard to reset sometimes. If you pull the cover it is easy to reset and once you see it you will be able to do this with the cover on.
If not this some damage may have been done to the coil in the contactor, you should be able to see it pull in or at least hear it klunk when the heater kicks on.You probally won't be able to feel heat when it runs as it is designed to protect you from scalding when it runs but you should feel a slight difference in the temp of the water coming from the returns in the spa. good luck and let me know how it works out.
