Question about Qca Spas Jewel Series Topaz Plus Hot Tub

I have a Sundance Spa that has started tripping the breaker

I have a Sundance Spa whose 7-year warranty expired in January. When I went to use it last week, the water was cold. I checked and the 60-amp breaker was tripped. I reset the breaker and the hottub came on but the next day when I checked, the water was warm but the breaker had tripped again. This scenario has repeated twice. Could the breaker be bad or is it an internal tub problem?

It is unlikely the Breaker is BAD, that just doesn't happen. To trip a breaker there MUST be an Overload, or a Short circuit, that's it. You will have to use a meter an troubleshoot the system. Something is very wrong..please use the links below to troubleshoot and repair. Please Be careful. http://spababes.com/heaterhelp.html

Spa just stopped threw circuit breaker replaced fuse still no power


I assume you mean you replaced the Circuit Breaker...?
Spa Breakers are typically "GFI " types... they will trip if they sense power going to ground. Please confirm this.
Is this a self contained unit with a plug in Cord? Please confirm this.
Did you install this unit yourself... including the electric?
If you installed this yourself, then kill power, and disconnect the power from the spa and see if breaker still trips.
without knowing the size and ampacity of the system, I cannot instruct you to safely troubleshoot.
Self contained units with a 20 amp conventional plug... would not know unless we get specific "year-Make-Model"

Tripping circuit breaker


Hi Kathy
Sometimes when a breaker keeps tripping, it will wear and will be in need of replacement...try replacing the breaker and see if that solves your problem.
If not then check the amps on the pump and make sure the breaker is able to hand the amperage the pump is requiring.

We have a 2004 Balboa series spa and the breaker keeps tripping what could cause this? Everything has been working fine.


Understand that this information is beingprovided as-is and without warranty or guarantee. As with all electricalcomponents and devices, all work should be performed by a licensed spa or pooltechnician. Serious injury or death can occur if a component is improperlyrepaired or installed.

There are several reasons the breaker can trip. It could bea bad pump, bad heater, GFCI or wiring issue.... Typically unplugging eachcomponent will help isolate which component is causing the trip. It is rare fora board to cause a breaker trip, so if all components (including both legs ofthe heater) are disconnected and the breaker continues to trip then you move onto wiring or the GFCI.

Spa keeps tripping breaker. Not GFI. Ran for 2 years then problem started. Replaced breaker. Where to look next?


Sounds like wiring problem, rule out GFI sometimes they just go bad or have your wiring checked in that run something is not hooked up correctly or loose. Make sure this circuit it is not shared with anything else. If not ran for 2 years could be wiring problem in spa get it checked out be safe, water and electric bad news if your not familiar with or comfortable with electrical issues. Good luck!
