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.

Air lock for my aruba spa hot tub how do i fix it


This sounds like a problem with the circuit board inside the spa control box.Do this:
  • Turn the breaker off
  • Unplug everything that is plugged into the circuit board i.e. the pump, heater coil, air blower, light etc.
  • Turn the breaker back on
If the circuit board stays on then you have to go thru the process of plugging one item at a time turning the breaker on then off to find the part that is bad.

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!

After being reset and plugged back into computer to charge, a red light pops on as soon as plugged back into usb port to charge and will not turn on.


Put a pin in the reset button situated in the tripod hole.Do it three times for about thirty seconds each time.Also depress the on off switch for about thirty seconds.Put it in the usb port of your computer to charge.After about thirty minutes or an hour the screen should go white.A battery shows on the screen.Wait till the battery shows all green,then it is fully charged.

BOTH TOP AND BOTTOM WARM (NOT WORKING)


Check cooling fins under refridge, may need to be vacuumed. Excess dust will cause this to happen, restricts air flow.

Inop on ac electric


There should be fuses/breakers in the converter box. It sounds like the DC circuit is ok but the AC portion is still out. Eric

Refridge stopped working after a power surge


First, check to see if the light comes on or if there is any fan, motor, or other sound coming from the appliance? If so, the refrigerator isn't really completely stopped--go to the specific problem you are having. If not, try adjusting the thermostat to a colder setting. If that doesn't work, read on.

Second, check to see if there is power getting to the refrigerator. To do that, plug a lamp or other device into the same outlet the refrigerator is plugged into. If there's no power, check the fuses or circuit breakers. If the fuses or breakers aren't the problem, contact a qualified electrician to restore power to the outlet.

If there is power to the appliance but it still seems to be stopped, there may be a problem in one or more of these: 

  • Wiring


  • Thermostat


  • Defrost timer


  • Compressor


  • Overload and/or relay
