Make sure the spas control panel is set for 230v next check the GFIC it might be faulty. AS A TEST ONLY you can bypass the gfi af all works, try another GFI. but this doesn't rule out.. shorted motor,heater or even a light ..

Hopefully you have not fried the motor. To free a stuck motor: try to reach past the strainer to the impeller and turn it. If you can't do that, remove the electric end cover and find a double flat for a wrench where the shaft goes into the motor. Or maybe you can remove the spring thing from the end of the motor and move the shaft with a pair of vise grips or pliers. Don't damage the place where the spring thing mounts. Don't try to move the motor with the plastic fan thing near the pump, you'll just break it, and then you really have problems.
To keep a motor from sticking, thru off season occasionaly spin the pump, just a few seconds will do, don't need water.

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.

SOURCE: polaris booster pump overheats and trips the breaker

The motor may be repairable. Check with local electric motor repair shops in your area. The motor may need to be replaced though and if so, we sell it at www.arrowmotor.net

SOURCE: USQ1102 pump gets power, buzzes, trips breaker

The motor-start capacitor is bad. This is a very common problem. It can be easily and cheaply fixed by replacing the capacitor. Replacements are usually less than $10.

See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEIv5ClLqXg for a step=by=step guide.

When you have the capacitor in hand, check the model# which is printed on it. Alternatively, you can Google the motor brand & model to find the parts list which will identify the right one. Then Google the part number, to find a seller.

check to see that the flow switch is working properly, it may not have enough flow on low speed to allow the heater to turn on. Make sure your filter/s is/are clean. If you have a pressure switch instead of a flow switch, it may need to be adjusted or replaced.

Hello - sounds like you will need to replace the relay itself if possible, if not you most likely need to replace the circuit board considering its age.You can check by diconnecting the power to the board.
If you are not an electrition and you dont work with electrical STOP NOW!! and call electrition.
Following steps would be 1. Turn off breaker. 2.Disconnect wiring to the board. 3.Wire nutt off electrical to the board.
4. Turn breaker back on. If breaker does not trip , board will need repaired or replaced.

We have a 2004 Balboa series spa and the breaker keeps tripping what could cause this? Everything has been working fine.


Understand that this information is beingprovided as-is and without warranty or guarantee. As with all electricalcomponents and devices, all work should be performed by a licensed spa or pooltechnician. Serious injury or death can occur if a component is improperlyrepaired or installed.

There are several reasons the breaker can trip. It could bea bad pump, bad heater, GFCI or wiring issue.... Typically unplugging eachcomponent will help isolate which component is causing the trip. It is rare fora board to cause a breaker trip, so if all components (including both legs ofthe heater) are disconnected and the breaker continues to trip then you move onto wiring or the GFCI.

Colman Spa trips GFI what is most common problem? GFI test good. Pump disconnected still trips, is heater most likely? Can you replace only heater? thanks


this should be simple ...
1.shut off the power
2.disconnect wires to heating element
3. turn power back on and see if it works if so replace heating element 45-95 dollars

if it still trips unplug all the cables from the pumps blower ozonators and see if it runs now,,,, if so plug each cable back (one at a time) until it trips again.if it trips that the problem pump etc.

99 percent of the the time its not the gfi its a device that is wet or shorted out ..Try everything else before replacing the gfi

If you suspect a bad breaker, that is an easy troubleshooting idea. In some cases you can swap the wire to a different breaker, of the same value, in the panel. This temporary swap would tell you if the fault is in the breaker or the circuit. If you do not have another breaker of the same value , then you would have to buy one for this self check.
The next step would be to check the wiring from the breaker to the device. Disconnect the device and try to reset the breaker. This will tell you if the fault is in the feed wires or the device or in the device itself.
