I think you have a leak that is dripping onto your control panel ... Your 60 amp breaker should be a GFI which is very sensitive. check it out ...

My hydroquip cs6230-u pack on my hot tub shuts off for days and comes back on. None of the circuit breakers pop. The cold weather is coming and I don't want any pipes to freeze. I would also like to u


I do not know this unit so this is only a guess on my part.

I am not sure what you are by it shuts off for days. If it is hot that may also cause it to shut down but for less then an hour. The manual can be found by googling:

hydroquip cs6230-u pack manual

Several of the manuals show up. Be sure CGFI is OK.

This is what I found in the manual. Measure your water temperature it may be OK.

FREEZE PROTECTION - There are two(2) levels of freeze
protection integrated into the system.
1 - SMART WINTER MODE, this mode will activate any time the
temperature falls below 59BF. This mode will be active for a period
of 24-hours. In this mode, if a pump has not been activated in the
last 2 hours, the system will automatically turn it on for 1-minute
to prevent freezing. The "Filter Cycle" indicator will illuminate
while this mode is active.
2 - If the spa water temperature drops below 49BF, the heater &
pump will be activated until the water temperature reaches 50BF.
While freeze protection is active no other functions will be
possible.

My hot tub has been running perfectly until a few nights ago when the GFCI breaker tripped and now it wont reset


Either you have a ground fault or the GFCI is toasted. Turn off the power to the GFCI, open the box the GFCI is in and disconnect the output wires, close up the box, re-energize, and try to reset it again. This will tell you which problem you have.

Why is my 50 amp GFIC breaker tripping out? I have just installed a new hot tube.I had one there before(smaller 40 amp) so there was already #8 wire there.The new hot tub requires a 50 amp. #6 wire. I just...


There might be a few things here:

1) Big problem >> the #8 wire is a fire hazard connected to a 50Amp breaker

#8 is a 40 amp breaker
#6 is a 55 amp breaker
We put #6 on a 60 amp breaker
Are you saying you hooked the #8 wire to the new 50 amp breaker, and the hot tub called for #6 wire?

Upsize your wire and breaker to meet code
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Wire-size-amp-rating.pdf

2) After putting the correct wire and breaker, you can still have a short in the circuit somewhere
We used to set equipment out in the field in early morning >> the grass was wet >> our equipment was fine, but the tiniest short would cause the GFCI to trip

I don't know where the problem is without a thorough checkout of every possible grounded surface. You need a good multi-meter

3) You better get an electrician over there to have a look before the place burns down or somebody wakes up dead in the hot water.

If I sound a bit scary here, it's because something doesn't sound right with your installation.

My tub trips out upon power up was working ok last nite 28/4/2010.


I don't know how you have it wired, but it is possible that the heater is on at the same time the pump starts and trips. The starter windings in the motor need all of 15 or more amps to start, that is why the lights dim when the fridge starts up. Anyway, if the heater is on the same line, same breaker, it needs to be bigger, and in 110 volt mode , you can't go any bigger than 20, but in 220 volt mode, you can go to 60 amp. that would be 30 amps each, potentially. depending on the voltage of each. Last time it worked ok because it wasn't crossing the line with a start up motor and water heater working at the same time. Now that you are totally confused. Check the breaker, see if there are 2. one for the heater, one for the motor. Hope this helps.

240 w/60 a outside breaker with test switch wont'


Inside the controller box is a red button to reset it but most likely the heater element is shorted out so replace the heater element first. Cost $100.00 at any pool or spa shop. Post here if you need more help.

30 amp 2 pole GE GFCI breaker pops on hot tub after hrs of use


I have seen circuit breakers trip at a lower amperage. It seems that they are weak. Generally circuit breakers run with 80% load with no problem, in your case 24 amps. I would replace the circuit breaker.

115 volt 20 amp breaker for hot tub keeps tripping


Is there anything else on the same breaker? Is that the proper amperage for the pump? How long has the pump been in service? It may need to be cleaned as possible obstruction causing too much strain.
