SOURCE: my spaform hot tub will not reach its temp ..we

if the heater tests out good, you most likely have a problem with the water temperature sensor. Make sure that the temp readout matches the actual water temp.. Sometimes the heater will think that the water is up to temp because the temp sensor is feeding the circuit board bad info. Check sensors, replace as necessary.

You should start with checking all your breakers to be sure the breaker did not pop just half of your breaker. This is something you should do with all your breakers. When you do this you should shut down all your 220v breakers so you don't get bleed back through the system. Other than that you need to look for resets on the tub. The heater is a good place to start and don't forget the gfci's on the tub or in the bath or laundry room.

Check for a water leak in the electrical areas of your spa... specifically look closely around the heater terminals, look for wet and corroded connections... If this spa is wired to a plug-in outlet, look at the GFCI plug assembly as well... You can also try disconnecting the blower, pump, heater, etc, from the control pack (one at a time) to determine which item is causing the tripping.

It sounds like there may be a short in it causing the breaker to trip. I would disconnect the wires from the new element, tape them up and test for the problem again. If it still trips it is not related to the heater element. If it still trips it is not related to the heater element and therefore additional diagnostics need to be used to find out what is is wrong.

Hot tub pump will not start back up after cleaning hot tub


When you say the pump won't start back up, do you mean the electrical side of things and there is just no power going to the pump. Or are you saying that the pump is on but not pumping water.

I am going to think you mean the pump is on but not moving water. This is common after you clean and drain your hot tub. You have what is referred to as an airlock in your hot tub line. It is easy to remove the airlock by simply opening one of the unions near the pump. This will allow the air to release and water flow to begin again.

Make sure also that you have cleaned the hot tub filters, if they are dirty and reduce water flow that could shutdown your hot tub pump as well.

If it is the electrical side of things make sure your GFCI has not tripped and maybe you just need to reset this. If it is anything further on the electrical side make sure you involve a professional.

  • open a union to release any airlocks.
  • clean your hot tub filters.
  • check to make sure your GFCI is not tripped.

My hot tub is not coming on at all and is giving me a Pr code. What can I do?


please follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
If the unit won't start, make sure power is on at the electrical panel or the electrical panel . Then test the pump and the motor. Check for and repair broken wires or loose or corroded terminals. If necessary, have the pump switch control tested and serviced professionally.
If the jets do not work, clear a blocked water intake of hair and other particles (see below) or replace a broken jet (see below).
If the water in your spa or hot tub is too hot or too cold, check to see if the high-limit reset switch has been tripped and, if needed, reset it. Adjust the thermostat setting and have the thermostat serviced if the problem persists. If necessary, test and replace a faulty heating elements

Do you have a model and serial number so i can spec components and a diagram?
The reset is a GFCI electrical or a high limit temperature switch?
If its a GFCI you have a leak or a short or the pump is drawing to many amps likely due to something in the impeller or plumbing restricting flow. Potentially its a shaft seal issue.
How hot is the tub when it trips? Try running it cold and see if it trips. If it doesnt and its still cold its the pump. If its hot and you set it to cold its a stuck relay or contactor or triac and therefore tripping a high limit switch.
If this is a hot tub/spa the pressure switch may be an issue. It shuts down the heat typically and keeps the pumps running.
If a reset switch of any type is tripped to many times it will continue to trip at a lower and lower value.
Just some tips, hope they help. Get back to me with some info.

My hot tub still trips the breaker,and i replaced


Check the heater. The heater is the most likely cause of tripping electric.

If you're not sure what you're doing, please contact someone who does. Electricity isn't something that should be played around with especially when in close proximity to water.

Ian.
