Your Jacuzzi should be connected to a large GFI breaker. If it pops as soon as you turn something on, there is an imbalance between the legs supplying the power to your device. When my (small "J") jacuzzi (at about age 15) did this, I discovered a small leak that had dripped onto the circuit board and had left a deposit causing a "short". I was able to clean the deposit off of the board physically, I fixed the leak and return my tub to service.

The GFI is very sensitive and for good reason. It protects you from dangerous electric voltages, even though the danger is low.

Jacuzzi j325 my tub is about 7 years old, I noticed the tub had no power so I checked the breaker in circuit panel and it was tripped, I reset the breaker and by the time I get back to the tub it trips...


There are several things that can cause this problem. The first is you just have a bad breaker, next is your heater unit is bad, lastly the pump motor could be bad. There is also the possibility that the motherboard is bad again.

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.

What's youI just wired in my J-300 Jacuzzi hot tub. The GFI trips every time I reset it. I took the GFI out of the equation and the tub runs fine, does not trip the breaker at the main breaker box


#1. DO NOT GET INTO TUB FULL OF WATER WITH A GROUND FAULT.
2. There is a short. You need to get multimeter and start checking each part for current running to ground wire.
3) Power is ON. Connect power without GFCI.
4) Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
5) Do not touch anything directly or you will become the ground rod.
6) Ground wire must be present, and bonded back to main panel box.
7) Do not sit or touch directly on cement or bare ground. Do not touch or lean into anything made of metal.
8) Body and parts must be on sheet of plywood, or similar non-conductive dry surface.
9) Test each part with spa, but also test electric line coming from main box.
10) GFCI will also trip with any fault detected on line. So the wire coming to spa may have the fault.
11) Add a new dedicated line from main box to spa.

Jacuzzi hot tub , trips the circuit breaker, inspection found a burn't part Z-1 in on wiring digram. Can some one help with what a z-1 is Capacator?


If you have something burnt on your circuit board you will need a new circuit board.
begin with finding the chip number on the circuit board. this chip is usually located close to the transformer on the circuit board.

I have a Jacuzzi tub and the vacuum switch will not turn the tub off. I had to turn the breaker off.


if when you push the air button it will not turn off the pump, it may be the button that is bad on the top of the tub or the air switch located in the motor.
take the pump out and plug it into an outlet. get a straw and blow into the air switch with the pump plugged in still. if it comes on then the button on the top of the tub is bad. if it doesn't come on then the air switch is bad.

The hottub keeps kicking the circuit breaker off.


Either the breaker is bad or you have an electrical problem. Unless you know how to work with electrical problems call for service. If you unplug the hot tub and plug a lamp or hair dryer into the outlet does the breaker trip? If yes, call an electrician. If the outlet is fine call for service on the hot tub.

I have a Jacuzzi Aero Select Tub, everytime i


Run an extension cord from another gfci and see if it works. If so, you could have a faulty gfci or issues internally to the motor. Also, if the "home run" for the tub is wired into a sub-panel and the grounds and neutrals are not isolated it could cause problems with a gfci as well.
Hope this helps!

Froze the jacuzzi.


You'll need to start electrical troubleshooting from a point where you have power and then keep testing further into the unit to find out where the power stops. Is there a local 'ground fault' reset button inside the hot tub control area (under the tub?)

How to wire up a spa or jacuzzi


Breaker, even GFI's are designed to trip at 135% to 600% over there load rate, so not to scare you but it depends more on the wire used from the main panel to the dryer/hot tube then the breaker. A GFI's claim to fame is the speed at which it will trip if voltage is detected on the ground side of the breaker. So to answer a question with a question, Can you overload a GFI without tripping it, Yes you can, just be careful the life of your hot tube motor and heater could be in danger if you overload the circuit.

Bath tub spa will not shut off


If you haven't done this already. I would search your breaker panel for a circut breaker titled jacuzzi tub (or something to that effect), and if it is not listed I would get someone to monitor when the tub shuts off, while you flip each breaker off, one at a time so as to determine which breaker it is and then immediately title it.
Next, an access panel to the tubs motor should be installed. After access is gained, inspect the pumps receptacle and if it is not GFIC protected I would return to the breaker panel, it may have a GFIC breaker. If neither are the case, then have this issue repaired
The button on your jacuzzi is air actuated with a flexible air line that connects to the actual switch, it may have broken or however became disconnected.

Any questions, feel free... Good luck...
