You can go to but from what I see they are all 230V 50 AMP GFCI breaker requirements. Which means that you will have to have dedicated 240V circuit with GFCI protection as it is a wtaer based appliance. If you have anymore questions please ask.

SOURCE: what causes my jacuzzi hot tub to turn itself on.

sounds like you have an electronic system that operates the tub. Many times those get hit with a voltage spike and it burns up a relay on the circuit board and THAT is what make them come on at weird times.
You will most likely need a new control for your tub.

SOURCE: hot tub won't get hot enough

Low Heat -
This problem is not usually associated with the heater element but more often a result of water flow issues. Specifically blockages such as dirty filters, partially closed valves etc... But... excessive scale/mineral build up on the element is on uncommon and can result in reduced heating. The fix is easy, use chemical treatments to reduce scale build up.
No Heat
No heat or water is only heating to 60F- 80F? If you are getting a low reading this is because the water is only being heated by the friction caused by running through the plumbing system and pump. Assuming there has not been a dry fire (visual signs of burn/overheat marks/ damage to the heater tube) and your temperature sensor and hi limit are in working order.
A bad element. Like a light bulb, spa heater elements will burn out over time & there are many factors which affect their longevity.

SOURCE: My hot tub drained overnight by itself will this have burn the motor up and could the garden hose being left in the tub have drained it that fast

Most hot tubs have a low water cut off switch to protect the pump so it may be okay. A garden hose could have drained the water out overnight. Hope this helps.

The spa will not start - the pump is definitely connected to working power and the last time i tried it worked fine. However today when I push the on button nothing happens?

When you say nothing happens, I wonder if the unit is making any sound at all or do you mean there is no water flow? If there is no water flow in your hot tub or spa then it could be just a simple air lock. Often when you drain your hot tub or spa you have to prime the system afterwards, this includes the pump but may also include the suction lines. The suction lines can develop an airlock in the upper portions of the suction line. To remove an airlock you simply force water into the suction line or release the air in the line by opening a union. Hot Tub Repair 101 What is an E6 or Error 6 Code Mean

Additionally, you could need new hot tub filters. If the filters are dirty and water flow is restricted your power pak may shut itself down as well. This can be as simple as cleaning your filters or replacing them. Hot Tub Filters

Here are a few things to consider

  • release any air locks
  • clean filters
  • make sure there is no obstructions in the lines
  • check to make sure GFCI is operational
I hope this helps.

What does the E6 error mean

Hi Cheyenne,

Most of the time an E6 error code refers to a restriction of water in your power pack. When you don't have enough water flow the power pack shuts itself down so it does not over heat.

Possible reasons are dirty filters, air locks, restrictions of water flow,

Solutions are to make sure your water flow is as best as possible, clean your filters often, remove debris from your hot tub, and remove air locks from your power pack.

Hot tub turned off during filter replacement

Hi Amy, When you say " I can't get it back on" do you mean the breaker won't reset? Is there power at the spa? Is the pump running but not pumping water? Depending on the spa, you may have created an air lock in the system and need to bleed the air out. It's possible that some water got into the equipment area and shorted out the system. In which case you need to open the equipment area and dry everything out before trying to turn the breaker back on. I would need more specific info to help you with this problem.

Will a flow switch stop the tub of any operation

Is the board getting power, is the control lighting up?
Do you see any error codes on the top side control?
Improper flow will give you an error code, caused by flow issues or a faulty flow switch. Make sure all gate valves are open and the water can flow freely.
If not then check your Hi Limit sensor. This is the overheat safety sensor if it fails the tub will not function at all.

Spa went over set temperature with loc message

How far over the set temperature did the hot tub go?

A hot tub may sometimes exceed the set temperature slightly especially if it's well insulated and has been on a long filtration cycle.

'Loc' usually means that the keyad is locked or partially locked. Check your quick reference guide and it will tell you how to remove the keypad lock.

What does FL mean on my hot tub?? water doesnt circulate but is still sort of warm...

FL could be a code for low flow. If you have no circulation this sounds like it. If your pump runs and you have no flow you could have a problem with your pump. Or if you have the tub drained then it could be an air lock, if you open the drain valve till you get water out that should fix that. Also check to be sure the isolation valves are open under the spa. I hope this helps.
