Question about Dream Maker Spas Pool & Spa

Sounds like the motor is seized. Of it cant turn over it will trip the breaker. Sometimes you can get to the shaft of the motor on the back end by removing a cover or cap. With a large flat screw driver or open end wrench you can sometimes spin it manually to break it free. If it is really stuck the pump may have to be dis-assembled or replaced.

Sounds like wiring problem, rule out GFI sometimes they just go bad or have your wiring checked in that run something is not hooked up correctly or loose. Make sure this circuit it is not shared with anything else. If not ran for 2 years could be wiring problem in spa get it checked out be safe, water and electric bad news if your not familiar with or comfortable with electrical issues. Good luck!

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.

Did you make sure you observed the correct polaity on the cord? The white wire should go to the silver screw on the cord cap. The black wire should go to the gold terminal (brass) and the Green wire should go to the Green screw. If the plug was corroded, is it possible that the GFCI is also corroded? They aren't that expensive and you could replace the GFCI yourself if you're sure you can locate the circuit breaker and turn it off.

What is the amp rating for the tub? What voltage are you actually running the tub on, 120 or 240? Is the 120v 10amp two-pole then the switch rating since you mention a switch? If there is no amp rating on the control what is the wattage of the heater element and how much horsepower is the pump rated for?
In the end it seems likely you do not have high enough breaker ratings to carry the pump(s) and the heater at the same time. Depending on the electrical circuit wire size and the breakers and switches you may need to make some adjustments or replace some of the components but I'll/we'll need more details on your existing setup and the tubs electrical demand to help you further.
