If you have a timer and it is on a maintenance cycle that will keep it on low, A freeze control that will keep it on under about 38 degrees. If the thermostat is controlling the pump it will keep it running also. If it has a cool down mode to let the heater cool that will keep it running. These are some reasons it will stay on and their may be more. I would turn the thermostat down and if it's cold out run a heater under the cabinet and make sure that no timer is controlling the pump. Set it to low and walk away for half an hour if it won't shut down turn it up to high and back down again. One of these low speeds should be off. Good luck.

How long should a 2007 eclipse spa take to heat up??

Usually spas heat approx 5 degrees an hour. If its been a day or so and your water isn't up to heat, you probably need a new heating element in your spa. Check the voltage at your heating element, and on your topside there is usually a heat indicator light that should be lit. If it has correct voltage at heater and the indicator light is lit, heater burned up. If you have incorrect voltage at heater check fuses for a possible blown fuse and see which pump it goes to, that could be your problem.

Tripping circuit breaker

Hi Kathy
Sometimes when a breaker keeps tripping, it will wear and will be in need of replacement...try replacing the breaker and see if that solves your problem.
If not then check the amps on the pump and make sure the breaker is able to hand the amperage the pump is requiring.

don't shut your spa off for several month let alone weeks with out draining it OR .. the chlorine settles in the pump ruines the seals and leaks water in to the motor or the rotor can rust to the armature. try blowing the motor windings with a soft tipped blower and spinning the rotor from the back of the motor ,should be a cap to remove that you can use a flat blade screwdriver to help spin the motor over.. best bet is to pull pumps and have them serviced. look for a guy that fixes pumps and haves good reviews, it's hard to find a guy to work on these as they are a real pain to service if the are not maintained . i tell everybody the should be serviced when there are NEW and in the future when they need service they will come apart EASY AND COMPLETELY and can then just get a simple tune up. I have the original motors in my spa 15 years old, how old are yours ? the blower did just go out although and my spa has a total of 4 pumps in it .. jay the pump guy longwood florida

Our pool/spa pump will cut off for approx. 20 minutes several times during an 8 hr cycle. It never use to do this. The pump is around 3 1/2 yrs. old.

If the motor is very hot it could be shutting off due to a thermal safety device.

Anything that makes the motor work too hard and/or heat up will trigger this.

Blockage in the water lines
Clogged pool filter
Worn motor bearings
Lack of air flow around the motor
Weak or damaged motor windings.

A defective thermal limit switch will **** off the pump when the pump is within heat and load limits.

Breaker on the end of spa plug-in trips overnight. I can unplug it and plug back in, tub runs to it's 100 degree default settings. Will stay on and maintain all day, but overnight I will find the tub off...

I have had a few troublesome units over the year that did as you describe due to 'dew' overnight collecting around the tub and the increased moiture sent the motor of the circ pump "over the edge" iinto a grounded state. A leaking pump seal was adding to the problem. Once the seal leak along with the dew got high enough the GFI would sense the grounded condition and trip. Fixing the pump seal and drying/cleaning the motor fixed the problem every time. If you find any other leak sources around the pump you will need to fix them as well.
