Have a sovereign hot springs spa purchased in 2000. When turning the jets on it kicks the breaker. Also, the inside control system is not working anymore. Could our friendly electrician do this easily,...


When spas turn on initially they run through a purge cycle. This when the pump runs for a few minutes to remove any air in the heating system so the heater does not dry fire.
If your system runs through the start up cycle just fine but kicks the breaker when the heater starts then the heating element is bad and needs to be replaced.

Hi, I have an LXi heaterthat keeps kicking off! On


This usually indicates an ignition lockout...The heater tried to fire but either didn't fire or a flame was not detected. Check and ,ake sure ignition is good, gas valve is opening and make sure all grounding is intact..

Pump starts runs for five seconds and then kicks off will not fire


If you have never checked/changed your filter or checked the pump pressure that is where your problem is. I have a tip which will guide you through the process at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4124129-yearly_maintenance_reddy_heaters Let me know if you need any more help. I would advise getting the pressure gauge they have for setting the pump pressure.

Reddy Heater not firing


Take air preassure from an air hose to turn the fan blades to loosen everything up. Time for afull service, like change the vanes in the pump, 3- filters fuel--2 air.

Jandy Lite2 Pool heater will not stay lit after firing.


Look at the sensor that tells unit that everything is lit. There should be some sort of sensor that tells the ECU that the ingnition area is a burn temp. It sounds like the unit can't tell that flame is lit. Hope this helps.

Heater won't fire


Not knowing what kind of heater you are trying to fix, lets look at the basics. Fuel, Ignition and Oxygen. You say you have fuel and spark, how about air? Too much fuel will not allow the unit to fire as well. Have you checked the fuel filter if there is one?
