SOURCE: 115 volt 20 amp breaker for hot tub keeps tripping

Is there anything else on the same breaker? Is that the proper amperage for the pump? How long has the pump been in service? It may need to be cleaned as possible obstruction causing too much strain.

SOURCE: FRIDGE IS BLOWING THE CIRCUIT BREAKER

Most likely you have a bad or weak circuit breaker. Consult an electrician for breaker change out. Make sure that it isn't hooked up with a GFI plug. They will not work on a GFI.

SOURCE: breaker relay tripping out

If the unloading valve trips , which i think is the safety valve that tells me the compressor is pumping up past its maximum allowed pressure. that black switch should be the overload switch. check the amps of the wires going to the motor while its running and then look at the name plate of the motor to see the maximum amount of amps that the motor is allowed to draw.

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

You have to try resetting the system. First turn the breaker off for the condenser and wait about 20 seconds. After you turn it back on the system should reset.

Circuit braker keep popping


Sounds like the heating element has gone out again. Once you reset the circuit breaker and the tub turns on it will start to circulate the water. This usually runs like this for about 2 mins and then the tub will recognize it is cold and send power to the heater. If the element is back at that point it will blow the circuit breaker.
If this circuit breaker pops as soon as you turn it on then you most likely have a bad circuit board.

My hot tub i dont no how too turn it on or turn the heat up


There should be an independent circuit breaker to control the tub, most commonly a 50 amp GFCI breaker. (Has a "test" button on the breaker itself) It is usually located either in the vicinity of the spa in a gray box, or in the main circuit breaker panel of your home. In rare instances, they may have used a "fuseless disconnect" either in the spa equipment compartment, or within the vicinity of the spa. (at least 6 ft. away from spa) The disconnect is simply a removable lever that you pull out to disconnect power to spa. I would advise you search for a breaker or disconnect. If you locate the breaker, switch it off, then back on. If you locate a disconnect, pull it out, ensure that it is inserted in the correct way, then re-connect it. If that doesn't work, check for a GFI on the equipment pack itself. It would have a "test" and "reset" button on it. Press the test, then reset button. You should hear a distinct "click" when the test button is pressed, and the reset button should stay in once pressed after that. If it does test and reset properly and the pump, etc doesn't work, then you have a problem in the control pack. (Either a fuse, or a component that an average consumer cannot diagnose or repair.) That being the case, you should call a qualified spa technician. Hope this helps.

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.

Inside the controller box is a red button to reset it but most likely the heater element is shorted out so replace the heater element first. Cost $100.00 at any pool or spa shop. Post here if you need more help.

How to turn on hot tub


Check at the plug in if it has a normal plug like in your home first. Should be a set of buttons there, called a GFI. One is test, and the other reset.Push reset to see if spa comes on. Most spas dont have an actual on button. Check breaker box for popped breaker also, maybe tub is having problems, and needs a service call. Also larger tubs ussually jave a gfi or fuse box outside, close to tub. Kirk
