Hi,
The Spa is not grounded and bonded properly....find a GOOD electrician that knows how to ground and bond your spa... he will drive ground rods specifically to just ground your unit...and hook them up so that there is no chance of stray voltage...

How to Check a Washer when Is Not Filling With Water OTHER washers test similiarly
# Test procedures to follow when a GE Hotpoint washer is not filling

* Disconnect the washer from the wall outlet
* Set the timer dial on regular and pull the knob to turn the timer push-pull switch on
* Set the temperature switch to the cold/cold setting
* Open the controls panel to gain access to the water mixing valve solenoids
* Touch the 2 terminals on the cold water solenoid with your volt meter test proves. Make sure that your body don't touch the washer cabinet, this eliminate the chance of getting an electrical shock.
* Have someone plug the washer cord for you while you check the voltage
* The reading should be 120 volts
* Disconnect the washer from the wall outlet
* Touch the 2 terminals on the hot water solenoid with your volt meter test proves. Remember, to keep your body from touching the washer cabinet to eliminate the chance of getting an electrical shock

Have your helper plug in the washer cord again so you could check the voltage at the hot water solenoid

* The reading should be 120 volts. If you get 120 volts, this tells you that the wall outlet, the timer, the water temperature switch cold and hot water settings are working ok.

#

If the GE Hotpoint washer is not filling, the problem should be on the water valve, the screen filters or the water supply
#

If one of the solenoids is bad you will need to replace the complete water mixing valve assembly YOU SHOULD ALSO GET AN OHMS READING OR SHOW CONTINUITY WHEN TESTED UNPLUGGED ON BOTH SELINOIDS HOT AND COLD

Tip

Grounding yourself and saving your components from shock


Grounding yourself is one of the most basic things to do when working with electronic components. While most people know that a pipe for say a sink (or a water pipe if you happen to be working in an unfinished basement), is grounded by being in the the actual ground.
Most people have felt the shock of a finger touching someone while after walking around in socks. Walking in socks will help keep your American floor more clean, rather than bringing in the filth that our shoes go through. Shoes have been in parking lots public bathrooms, and everywhere you can think, so keeping the shoes at bay next to the open doors is healther.

But no shoes means more static. so touch one of those water pipes and you will be grounded. and the chips, say a ram chip will not be fried. If you dont have pipes exposed, there are still several ways to ground yourself. The easiest is to touch a bare metal surface that is grounded. For some this might be the back of a desk top where the power plug in is located. For others try touching your sink faucet, might as well wash your hands while your there.

static although its around our daily lifes, can cause big trouble for chips. for them its like lightining. thousands of volts can be transmitted and fry chips. so be sure to ground yourself before working on any computer electronic component.

My mixer is 'shocking' me?


Look at the plug and see if the spades are the same size, One should be bigger than the other one. The problem could be the outlet that you are using too. If one spade is big then that would mostly rule out a short to the case of the mixer BUT if it was taken apart or serviced and wired wrong then the HOT connection is causing a short to the case. IF the outlet is wired wrong then the power is getting to the case when it should not be. Also the kitchen should be wired so that all the outlets are GFI and should not be shocking you.

What would cause a small electrical shock when touching the fan or light pull cords on ceiling fan, or even the metal parts of the fan? When you touch any part of the fan you get a slight tingle. We have...


You have a bad ground, be carefull this could lead to a big shock if there ae any bare wires in that Unit! I would turn off the power at the fuse box to this fan and remove it and check for bare wires inside the fan itself if you can. If you don't see any bad wires or any wires touching the fan itself, then I would check the ground wire to that unit! I suspect that it is not grounded!

My black and decker water cooler makes noise like its boiling water which I know it does but it's much more pronouced and more frequent than before.


Slight boiling noise aside, a loud and unbearable rattling noise plagued my B&D Hot and Cold Water Cooler (top load). DIY Solution: The issue was some sort of copper coil vibrating against the front panel cover (just behind where you would place a glass. This copper colored coil is attached a canister looking thingy ma-bob, with a long black arm that is runs to the bottom right of the back cover. By removing all four screws on the back cover, you may angle (bottom out) the cover enough to gain access to this arm. GENTLY... lift the arm/rod so that the copper coil is no longer touching the front panel (and thus it is free to vibrate without that annoying noise). CAUTION: unplug the unit and ground yourself to avoid shock. Once you can see the coil is no longer touching, plug-er back in and see if the noise has stopped. Perform above at own risk.!!!!!

I have a saltwater pool system that was recently set up and the water seems to have a slight green tint to it and the walls and floors are slimy. Can you ''shock it'' with salt in the water?


yes but yu need more than just salt take a sample of water to pool shop you have way to much phosphurus in the pool you will need a shock tratment that has to be poured through skimmer box that goes through filter and increases pressure mommenterally salt alone will not fix. alkalinity is buggered as well you will need a buffer powder as well to get on top of it get water tested so you dont just waste your time

Icemaker leaking causing icicles


Is it overfilling with water? If so, it may be an problem with the fill valve leaking slightly. I say slightly because if it were a large leak, the freezer would have frozen puddles in it. Also check the water chute to be sure the water is all going into the freeze tray. Sometimes they can work loose.

If the seam is leaking, there could be a crack in the housing - not sure that's repairable - sometimes epoxy will work (5 minute, 2 part) but it can be difficult for glue to hold on the type of plastic used in an ise maker housing.

take your volt meter set it on 250 volt ac scale touch a frame of the stove with one lead and turn on the water at the sink and touch the sink with the other lead, you may need to add wire to one of the leads to get it to reach let the hot water run for several minuets before you touch the lead to the sink if you get a volt reading then you have an open water heater element in the water heater
the thermastat in the heater is calling for the element to come on power is applyed to the element but with it open the electricity is in the water
when you touch the range whitch is grounded and a sorce of water ie the heater YOU make the return path to ground when you touch the stove
