I have a Sundance 850 spa that when you switch it on at mains power , runs for 5-10 sec then shuts off. Have message - - - - that comes on display panel


Had a similar problem; the heater was blown. You might want to try disconnecting heater wires (with breaker to spa OFF).

Then see if spa pumps work after turning power on.

I got an after market heater that works great; VERY hard to install while spa is full...but I did it anyway. Good luck.

Emerald Vantage Hot Tub Dead


if your GFI trips soon after the spa goes through the purge cycle then you need a new heater.
Yes the heater can develop a dead short and it causes the GFI to trip when power is sent to the heater.

Bought hot tub used need to know what size supply wiring and breaker I need


Check your heater/pump/lights/accessories. These should all have electrical ratings. Your supply wire should be large enough to carry the combined amperage of everything running together. I personally would separate each system in the breaker box, 1 for pump, 1 for heater, 1 for accessories.

Water temp 140+ degrees, Pump running, display shows Sn


What????
Portable Spa with its own components/equipment below (electric heater) or do you have a separate equipment set installed away from the spa. Or is this a swimming pool? With a gas heater?
Let us know more about what it is you have that has definitely malfunctioned!Make, Model, Serial numbers. And if it is a portable self contained spa, not just the spa maker, see if you can isolate the control system & its specific information.

Can I change out a Hayward H400ID with an electric heater for the spa only? If so what electric heater product brand would you recommned. Raypak?


Hayward has manuals for each type heater, gas and electric.
http://www.hayward-pool.com/prd/In-Ground-Pool-Manuals_10201_10551_14502_-1___I.htm
Hayward also has contact page, and can probably recommend correct change-over product.

You want to switch from propane to heat-pump type.

There are likely 3 areas of difference. Read each manual and generally look for 1) unit size and capability to match spa 2) pipe connections and sizes 3) Electrical requirement

From electrical standpoint, You need GFCI-protected line from circuit breaker box, or GFCI (arc-fault) breaker. This will prevent electrocution risk around spa.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-GFCI.html

Wire sizes are based on volts and watt-rating of heater.
Each electrical device has rating plate showing volts and watts.
3500 watts divided by 240 volts = 14.5 amps so install double-pole 20 amp breaker and use 12 gauge wire.
1500 watts divided by 120 volts = 12.5 amps so install sinle-pole 20 amp breaker and 12 gauge wire.

I have an older Catalina spa with acura controls. The tub will no longer heat up. The pump cycles but the heater and light does not come on


These older style controls are easily repaired but require some electrical diagnosis expertise to determine the problem.
1. Check the pressure switch to make sure it is working properly - Use a continuity checker to see if the pressure switch is closed when pump is running. If not then check for proper water flow. Dirty filter, obstruction in plumbing. If flow is good, replace the pressure switch and see if heater works.
2. Check to see if the heater has 220V at the heater terminals when heater circuit is running. If not, then check to see if the heater contactor (relay) is actuating. Check Hi-limit switch, Thermostat and pressure switch for continuity. If heater has voltage, check for current draw, using a clamp style amp meter around on of the heater wires. look for about 20 amps. If voltage is present but no current draw, the heater is bad.
3. The spa light is a completely separate circuit, check the air switch, air line, button and light bulb. Its a 12V AC circuit.
