I have a spa berry 2 person hot tub. Tried resetting it but as soon as I let go of the reset button it trips the breaker. Can't get it to stay on. Tub is 4 yrs old. Where do we start?


Melisa, Breaker/GFI may be going bad. You may have to get an electrician to check for short or faulty motor/heater, etc. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Aqua Flo Flo Master won't start on low speed


Water flow error on hot tub means low water flow. This is not enough water flow to turn the system on.
Some motors do have a start capacitor on them. you can certainly check that or take it to your local motor repair shop and they can check that for you.

What's youI just wired in my J-300 Jacuzzi hot tub. The GFI trips every time I reset it. I took the GFI out of the equation and the tub runs fine, does not trip the breaker at the main breaker box


#1. DO NOT GET INTO TUB FULL OF WATER WITH A GROUND FAULT.
2. There is a short. You need to get multimeter and start checking each part for current running to ground wire.
3) Power is ON. Connect power without GFCI.
4) Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
5) Do not touch anything directly or you will become the ground rod.
6) Ground wire must be present, and bonded back to main panel box.
7) Do not sit or touch directly on cement or bare ground. Do not touch or lean into anything made of metal.
8) Body and parts must be on sheet of plywood, or similar non-conductive dry surface.
9) Test each part with spa, but also test electric line coming from main box.
10) GFCI will also trip with any fault detected on line. So the wire coming to spa may have the fault.
11) Add a new dedicated line from main box to spa.

Check the connections and the pump motor. There is a good chance the pump motor has pooped out

Just had my Hayward Tristar 2-spd pump/motor replaced a month ago. I've been running it on high speed for about 3 weeks because my control pad went out and I couldn't get it to run on low speed. ...


running the pump on high speed will not have caused the problem, they are meant to run 3,450 rpm's continually. It's more than likely a supply power problem like you mentioned. Check GFI's, and breakers to see if anything has tripped.

Disconnect both hot leads from the breaker at the box. Using an ohmmeter measure the resistance to ground or the neutral bar in your box. If the resistance is LESS than about 50 K you have excessive leakage current. It is unlikely the motor is the problem. I would check the wiring and switching for the leakage. Now to the second problem: If you switch between speeds while the unit is running, the GFI will LIKELY trip. This is normal as you create a massive transient that the GFI PROBABLY can't handle. There are a couple things to try: One is using a two pole control switch and turn off the pump before "switching gears" ... as an electrical engineer I can't explain this unless you can understand electrical transients AND capacitive coupling between the windings and the case of the motor. I realize you may have a combination speed and on off switch so you MIGHT have to add a switch. Ideally I would want a relay for on/off near the breaker that momentarily disconnected before shifting gears. The next fix possibility involves a trick we use to control transients in electronics. This involves noise control by using a toroid around the pair of hot wires. This MIGHT take several turns through a good sized ferrite toroid with both the hots in the same direction, side by side. This forms what we call a "Bi-Filar" choke. Look that up on Google to understand the principle... it essentially helps balance the currents in the hots and isolates them from ground for transients.

Hello,I have an old jacuzzi vectra II hot tub (1988) 120 volt.the gfci on the unit trips every time the pump is on low speed with the thermostat calling for heat. there is no trip when there is no demand...


hi,

ok so when the pump is on high and the heater is running it doesent trip? you didnt say if it did. undo the heater leads so the pump is isolated completely. run the pump on the control centers gfci and see if it trips. if it does then try wiring directly - with an extension cord to a plug with a gfci in your house and see if it trips the gfci in your bathroom. if no trip inside house then bypass tubs gfci and run it with heater and pump through your bathroom gfci. if no trip then try and replace the tubs gfci, it gets pretty humid in the control center and gfci's have a semiconductor which which do fail after years of rough duty like that. if it trips the gfci in your house with the heater again it has a cracked heater element. craigslist always has old hot tubs and parts. you might have to buy a whole used old hot tub but that may be cheaper than a new heater box.

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.

2 yr old softub Hot tub with connected GFI wire was emptied and cleaned out and filled; now the GFI trips when pluged in, and will not turn on!


Either the GFI is bad or it is tripping because there is a short in the system (obviously, right). I would turn off your panel break, disconnect the GFI and using a meter test to see if there is a short in the system. You would check the hot lead coming from the GFI to the tub and see if it is shorting. If you can't find a short, you should try replacing the GFI. If there is a short then you need to search for the short. Hope this helps and good luck!
