The unit shows to lights to show its in normal electrical operation. The right light is out and the manual says the white neutral wire is not connected but it is connected correctly to a 50 amp GFCI breaker. What else would cause it to read this

SOURCE: 30 amp 2 pole GE GFCI breaker pops on hot tub after hrs of use

I have seen circuit breakers trip at a lower amperage. It seems that they are weak. Generally circuit breakers run with 80% load with no problem, in your case 24 amps. I would replace the circuit breaker.

SOURCE: gfci breaker for spa

gfci's are designed to trip if they receive voltage on there ground/neutral side, therefore my vote is for Smithbrother I would say there is probably a partial short somewhere in you system.

SOURCE: need to connect 240 volt 60 amp breaker with 6.3 - 4 wire

Yes the red and black wires are both hot. As for the white and bare wire, they can both go on the neutral bus bar because ground and neutral are not separated. Actually you don't have to have the bare ground wire, but it is a good idea to connect it for inspection and code purposes. If you don't have a neutral bar in the subpanel, you can just connect the white and bare wires directly to the box and they will be ok.

SOURCE: 120v hot tub wiring diagram

I would expect your tub is either 110 or 220. Currently you are set up for 110. Based on that ... you disregard the red wire.

If your tub can run on 220, you should run it on 220 as this is more economical.

You should probably have an electrician check this out and make any changes to assure proper and SAFE operation of your tub. You are using a GFI, correct?

Thanks for your interest in

SOURCE: Gfi Breaker 2 Pole 20 Amp: installed 20 amp dbl pole breaker to hot tub. Keep...

When Working with Household Electricity you want to always keep in mind that the BLACK wire ALWAYS carries DEATH. What I mean by this is that working with a Single Phase Circuit (one that uses 120VAC) the only wire that should be carrying a voltage is the BLACK one, the other 2 wires (typically the White Neutral and Green Ground) should both be electrically connected to Earth Ground (usually by being attached to your water pipe.)

It is also possible that your hot tub may use more than 20 Amps.

Wiring a dimmer switch with 208vac, single pole

208 Volt 2-wire is generally achieved by pulling two hot wires off 3-phase 120/208 Wye or 208 Delta, or Highleg to center tap off high leg delta.

Since each of these three phase systems also offers 120volt for lights, and a dimmer can be used for lights, then I wonder what you are using dimmer for?

208 volts.can be controlled by turning off one hot of the two hot wires.
Install dimmer on one of the hot wires, and see what happens.
Is the dimmer rated for 208 volts?

Coleman evcon wrong polarity or twinning error what does this code mean

It will probably means you have your hot and neutral wires crossed. The furnace has 120 volts coming in to it from your house. If the hot and neutral wire are wired to the furnace wrong, it will show this error. Take the electrical box loose where you can see the power cord coming in to the furnace. (turn off the circuit breaker to the furnace) Take the white and black wire loose , connect the black where the white wire was and the white where the black was. All you are doing is reversing polarity. I hope this works for you.

The heating is not working properly, not hot enough. I tried 3 hours, but the clothes still not dry. It is a 120V Kenmore dryer.

My coleman hot tub control panel displays 5nl what does this mean?

It's supposed to be Sn1, but it looks like a 5. ;-)

Sn1 usually indicates a problem with the High Limit temperature sensor, but it can be caused by other faults such as restricted water flow and I'm assuming that your Coleman has the Balboa controls.

Check the operation of the Circulation pump / Pump 1 and if the water flow is adequate you could try changing the sensor. If however you're unsure about anything, seek professional help.

If you're in the UK I can help with parts and if you're local I can possibly come and check the hot tub for you.

Kind Regards,

Kohler Whirlpool tub motor problem. Turn motor on and trips GFI. It looks like the GFI is wired right and suggestions

Unplug tub from GFI, does GFI hold, plug something else into GFI to see if it holds under load. If all is ok then make sure you have a good ground from the motor to the GFI and the polarity is good. If 120 vac black wire to gold post, white wire to silver post and ground to green. Check proper connections, including polarity and ground at tub junction box and at pump motor it self.
