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!

Need to know where the reset button is on Kohler jacuzzi tub


The only place I'd expect to find a reset button is on the motor itself. That is, unless it's a ground fault problem, in which case it might be on another ground fault outlet somewhere in the house (possibly a bathroom or garage outlet) OR on the breaker - check the breaker box to see if the breaker's tripped or the GFE button needs to be reset.

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.

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 whirlpool jacuzzi tub. I wired to diagram but when tub is full and I turn on jets it trips a breaker. Not GFCI outlet but breaker panel breaker.


Sounds like you may not have a ground on the motor of the pump or a grounded outlet?
check the wiring on the motor on the cord to make sure there are no wires improperly attached inside the motor housing.

My jacuzzi tub will not come on . fist it was making a humming sound , i turned it off checked the reset plug tried to turn it on and not a sound


mine did the same thing. the tub is plugged into a ground fault interupter (gfi) plug. hit the reset button. if this doesn't work, check the circuit the gfi is on, sometimes they are on the same circuit as the plugs at the sink. check them for reset also. if this fails, on the motor of the tub, there should be a reset button. try to reset it. OH first make sure the breaker has not been tripped.

Jacuzzi hot tub, aero select. pops circuit breaker as soon as switch is thrown. I disconected both motors and panel. still blows. Unit is about 8 Years old. Is there anywhere I can get a schmatic or any...


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.

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.

Gfci breaker for spa


gfci's are designed to trip if they receive voltage on there ground/neutral side, therefore my vote is for Smithbrother I would say there is probably a partial short somewhere in you system.
