You didn't give a location, so I cant offer someone to help. I do know that the magnetic switch, otherwise known as a contactor, chatters because its not getting enough voltage at the control coil. It should have a label listing the coil voltage on it, check the power source and go from there.

If the gas valve is chattering it is probably the coil on the valve. You can obtain a ohm reading on the valve and see if you have high resistance with a multimeter. Also check to see if your getting at least 22 volts across the coil should be terminals mv and c on the valve or sometimes there is just a 2 wire plug going to the valve. I think the coil on the vavle is faulty from the info you have given. Feel the black or silver coil on the valve and see if its getting really hot to touch. I would replace the valve

The chattering is exactly what happens when a relay fails. If this is an older model tub, it is likely that you can just replace the ice cube relay. If it is a newer tub, the relay is most likely imprinted into the main cpu board, in which case you have to have somebody put a new relay on the board for you, or replace the control board. If this is an older tub and you need help sourcing parts, you can contact me @

Ticking sound in my 2003 pontiac grand am when i start the car and ticks faster when i accelerate

Worn valve lifter, or the rocker arm needs to be tightened a little.
Have to remove valve covers to see if one is loose.
If it is the lifter, the whole top part of the engine has to be taken off to get at it.

No Heat from Spa


Heater contactors "buzzing": Do you mean normal buzzing or extra loud buzzing? Loud buzzing or chattering can be caused by low voltage to a contactor. If normal sounds, then probably the relays on the contactors is working, but the contacts may be stuck, or burned enough so as not to make contact. First, get a voltmeter and check for 240 volts AC at the heater contactor terminals. If the voltage is low, most likely you need to check the contactors further. Check for dirty contacts, clean if needed. If the contacts are not moving when energized, then you will probably need to replace one or both of the contactors.
