240 w/60 a outside breaker with test switch wont'

I have a 240 w/60 a Siemens breaker with test switch for my hot tub.
I turn it off to drain my tub and turn it back on 1 hour later. I had no problems in the past, but now my tub wont turn back on.
I checked my main breaker, turned it on/off a few times, but still no power on my tub???
Is there a reset on this unit?
Thanks, Steve

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.

Why wont hot tub heat with jets on losing temperature on 110 volt


My first question would be about the outside temperature. What is the outside temperature?
Hot tubs that are designed to operate on 115v only have 1.5kw heaters and if the outside temperature is below 50 deg F they tend to not keep up to 103 deg water while being used. They are also designed to not heat while the high speed pump is operating.
Does it stay up to temperature on a normal basis?

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.

Breaker popped and wont reset yellow light on arc fault breaker after plugging in small humidifier unplugged but it wont reset


Hi, I don't know if this has been solved or not, but anytime these G.F.I. breakers trip, it is for safety because it is picking up a voltage leak from what ever appliance has been plugged in. If it does not reset, it must be a older breaker and you will need to run down and pick up another one. Home Depot is a good place to get one for around $20. With it tripped, no voltage will be present. Just take a flat blade screw driver to remove the wire from the breaker. Depending on the type/style, most just hook opposite the screw side. Just grasp the breaker where the terminal screw is and give it a pull straight out to you. When you install new one, just hook the right side under the lip, and push left side in place and reconnect hot and neutral coiled wire. You will be set! Always be safe when working around any high voltage source. Please rate me on my help to you. Thank you!

I have a 15 year old Hydropool Gold Series hot tub that I bought used a month ago. We got it all hooked up and working great but was told the timer never worked so it ran 24/7. Yesterday my husband turned...


If you can find the points on the timer try sanding them down. If they were burnt and stuck the spa would have run continuous. When you pulled the timer you may have broken them free but a burn would have kept them from making contact. I hope this helps, if not you might try reversing the leads coming into the timer or wherever you unhooked it to take it out. good luck.

Why is my 50 amp GFIC breaker tripping out? I have just installed a new hot tube.I had one there before(smaller 40 amp) so there was already #8 wire there.The new hot tub requires a 50 amp. #6 wire. I just...


There might be a few things here:

1) Big problem >> the #8 wire is a fire hazard connected to a 50Amp breaker

#8 is a 40 amp breaker
#6 is a 55 amp breaker
We put #6 on a 60 amp breaker
Are you saying you hooked the #8 wire to the new 50 amp breaker, and the hot tub called for #6 wire?

Upsize your wire and breaker to meet code
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Wire-size-amp-rating.pdf

2) After putting the correct wire and breaker, you can still have a short in the circuit somewhere
We used to set equipment out in the field in early morning >> the grass was wet >> our equipment was fine, but the tiniest short would cause the GFCI to trip

I don't know where the problem is without a thorough checkout of every possible grounded surface. You need a good multi-meter

3) You better get an electrician over there to have a look before the place burns down or somebody wakes up dead in the hot water.

If I sound a bit scary here, it's because something doesn't sound right with your installation.

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.

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
