Your tub needs to be hard wired through a 220 Volt 60 or more amp GFI by a professional electrician. Your tub needs to comply with your local codes.

If you will go to your local professional pool supply with dimensions of the filter cavity, they can provide you a cartridge.

The heater 'core' is a large calrod that sits in the water flow.

I hope this information helps you.

How do i change the wiring from 110 volts to 220 volts on a spa berry hot tub


You must run two 110 volt lines from the fuse box.

Hot tub wont turn on.


That doesn't sound good, is it 110 volts or 220? if it is 220 you can not wire it backwards. the hum might be that there is not enough power to turn it over. it could be a loose wire, bad connection, or a bad start run capacitor. if it is a capacitor it is located under the hump cover on the motor.

Unless it's a 110 tub, you don't. If the system is designed to run on 220 the circ pump and flow pump will not function properly, the power pack may not function and the tub will never reach temp. If it is a 110 hot tub I would still suggest having a licensed electrician run the line for you. Most insurance companies will not cover any type of hot tub related claim unless installed by licensed tub tech/electrician. If you insist on wiring it yourself, the BLACK wire is the "hot" wire carrying the current. In 220 installations the RED wire is the second "hot" wire. The WHITE/GREY is the neutral wire, and the GREEN is the ground. But again, I STRONGLY recommend paying the $80-$95 bucks to have it done professionally. I hope this helps =)

Cant find the filter for my Aeware Hot tub


Take the filter to a hot tub shop and they will be able to identify it for you. Any shop that sells pool or spa equipment should be able to help as most manufactures use aftermarket filters for cost reasons.

Hot tub wont come on


What do you mean "Jump it"?
Check with a meter, ACROSS both hot wires to get a reading of 220-240 volts. do not test across 1 hot and the meter lead on ground! You probably are not getting proper voltage to the hot tub. Or you may have a burned system fuse normally 20-25-or 30 amp fuse, which is found within the control box of the spa.

Bought a used Leisure Bay hot tub and it is wired for 220 and I want to go back to 110. What do I need?


Reconsider ... Reconsider ...

My comments are general in nature since you have left out a lot of information to make this answer specific to your model.

What kind of load does this hot tub represent? It is probably heated electrically ... if that is the case, I would guess that the load is at least 50 amps on 220 V, maybe more, possibly less. If you convert to 110, your (amp) load will be at least twice that size! you will have to change the heater and the motor to run on 110, it will just not work as well as when running on 220. You may not be able to run the existing motor and heater on the lower voltage, requiring replacement (if available).

Your tub must be protected by a GFI (rated at 60 amps 220 volts) and the supply wire should be #6 three conductor with ground.

If you convert (if it is convertable at all) you will still need a GFI, it will have to be at least 100 amps and your power wire will be #2. I suspect you will not be able to make the attachment of #2 wire (or even #4, if it is legal in your area) to the tub due to size constraints in the connection box. Go to the store and take a look at these wires on the shelf. Aluminum #2 is the size of your finger and you would need three of them to connect at 110 volts.

220 volt 60 amp GFI at the big box store is about $90.00. Did you get wire with the tub? Is it #6, 3 conductor with ground (red/black/white/green)? Maybe #4? Will it reach your power source?

Unless there is space in your power panel for this large double pole GFI, you will likely have to have a sub panel installed. If you are very clever and skilled at working on power panels, you may be able to do this yourself. I suggest you have this done by a licensed electrician. In any event, I would encourage you to comply with the local codes in your community - which are in place for the protection of you and your family.

Look here for generic information on installation. Look in particular at page 3 of the instruction. http://www.premiumleisure.com/Manuals/nov07/ZSeriesSpaManual.pdf

While the picture shows small wire (for clarity?), it looks like #14 wire to me, in bold print, the instruction says use #6 wire, and it should be copper, NOT aluminum. If it is a long distance from the power panel to the tub, you may want to consider increasing the size to #4 to account for power drop. In this case, you would put a standard 220 V 60 amp breaker in the main panel and run #4 to the GFI in a sub panel that is located at least 5 feet away from the tub. The sub panel should be water tight and be lockable, if out of doors. You could run #6 from the GFI to the tub, if your local code allows.

My friend, just wiring this tub without modification is a big, expensive and potentially dangerous job, requiring expertise, knowledge and patience. Changing the heart and nerve system of this device is beyond the expertise of most home owners, if possible at all. Good luck with your project.

BTW, I am not a licensed electrician, though I do have extensive electrical experience, including installing and maintaining hundreds of power pedestals, residential and commercial wiring and power systems around swimming pools. I am a Certified Pool Operator ... and when the time comes, I would be glad to answer your water maintenance questions.

I do have and did install my own hot tub.

I hope this helps you with your question ... thanks for your interest in FixYa.com. If your found this information helpful, a positive vote would be appreciated.

I bought a used hot tub and I am not sure how all the wires hook up. It's a Whirpool Emerald, 220 volt.


Wouldn't you be better off calling an electrician in your area, rather than asking a question like this online. In my mind if you wire something wrong it will most likely be the last bath you or God forbid one of your family members take! Do the right thing educate yourself in electricity or call someone who knows!

Can i use an Xbox 360 bought in USA in India - given the voltage conversion required? would there be any seperate adaptor available for 220 volt usage in India


You can purchase a volt adapter (rather common in travel stores/airports) but over time the device's power-supply will wear out because of the frequency difference.

North America runs at 60hz
India runs at 50hz

Electrical installation


From the specs that you are showing 800 watts @ 230 volts will pull under 3.5 amps. I would install a 20 amp 220 volt circuit with #12 wire. Just double check if the tub requires a 3 wire ckt (2 hots & ground) or a 4 wire ckt. ( 2 hots, neutral & ground) Make sure the ckt. is GFCI protected!
