Question about Pool & Spa
I recently purchased a used 2006 Cal Spa 6100. I'm having an issue with the LED lights. They operate perfectly if I'm only running one pump on low speed and the secondary pump. When I turn the jets on as well, about 2/3 of the lights go off. Any suggestions?
This sounds like a transformer is going out possibly. You are losing power in the system.
I would have an electrician check the system before moving forward.

SOURCE: High speed spa pump shuts off
The motor may have a thermal cutoff if the motor draws too much current. Do you have a sufficient large gauge circuit supplying the motore? If not the actual voltage at the motor may drop, causing it to draw more current to make up for the loss of voltage, thereby tripping the motor's protective breaker. I assume the motor will start again after serveral minutes of cooling down.

SF stands for Service Factor. It has to do with how much overload your motor can handle without damage. Here is some information about it:
You should not be feeling any "trickle" of electricity. You are correct...it is NOT SAFE! I would definitely have another qualified electrician check your wiring out.
Thanks for using Fixya.

SOURCE: Pump will not work in high speed
Clean the relay contacts on the board. Cut the power, ofcourse. Also, try switching the hot wire on the low side of the pump to the high side to rule out the pump.

SOURCE: pump stops running on high speed
You have a magnetek motor and it is overheating and cycling its thermal overload. A local electric motor repair shop may be able to fix it however it will likely need to be replaced. It is to costly to repair the motor if the damage is in the windings.
Assuming at that low a horsepower it is 115V, the likely replacement motor is a catalog #BN37. We sell it for $157. You are usually better off replacing the seal when you replace the motor and most Jacuzzi pumps are either a 200 or 1000. They should be around $5.

Check for voltage at the pump, before assuming the relays are out... then check for voltage before and after the relay contacts
