Depends which breaker - if the rcd or elcb trips there is a power leakage to ground because of a fault. If it is the mcb there is a different sort of fault causing the appliance to attempt to consume too much current, a short circuit...

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

My hot tub trips the GFCI. THe GFCI holds when I disconnect the wires running into the hot tub. I have disconnected EVERYTHING from the circuit board including the heater and the GFCI still trips.


Sounds like wet or bad wiring somewhere but u should do a visual inspection of all the wires & connections first then through process of elimination. Turn off breaker disconnect all wires and connect one wire then turn breaker on & if it dosent pop the. Turn it off and connect one more wire and turn the breaker on & continue until you get the breaker to pop and the last wire or board u just connected is your problem & go from there.

HotSprings hot tub trips circuit breaker


Could be a wrong breaker for that circuit or a problem with the tub.
• first see if there are other lines on that circuit- should be only the tub.
• Check the specs for the tub that the circuit is the correct amperage.
• if clear on those items, there is a problem with the unit and that's another question.

Hot tub breaker trips but only when people are in it?


Because it is a GFCI. Try making sure that the grounds are all good. Maybe go the extra step of putting in grounding rods into the ground and grounding to the unit. These are just guesses.

Spin cycle trips house circuit breaker on my GE top loading washer


Hello,

The very likely reason the breaker trips only on spin is because the tub bearing is locked up on the washer since it is locked up its causing way excessive friction at the motor which causes the breaker to trip.Can you rotate the tub by hand or does it seem really hard to rotate by hand indicating that the tub is ceased up due to the tub bearing??

My breaker is conected to a hot tub. tub was working fine in auto mode. Turned on jets and breaker tripped. will not reset can you help me


I am assuming this is a GFCI circuit breaker? If it is it will have a "test" button on the breaker. When you say "jets" i'm assuming you mean when you turn on the blower to make the air bubbles? It could be you have a problem with the blower motor. When you start the blower, it trips the breaker. Be sure the blower is in off position when you reset the breaker. The most common fault though on a spa/hot tub is with the heater. If the element goes bad, and current flows to ground, it will trip the GFCI breaker. Again try and turn all functions off. Reset breaker, and then turn on one at a time till the breaker trips. First the pump, then the heat, then the blower.

Heater not coming on.


sounds like the heater element is out. if you turn the breaker on and once the tub cycles on it trips the breaker again. it is definitely the heater element.
