Hot tub pump stops and control panel says there is a flo problem
Yes a pump does have a thermal cut out. When the motor gets too hot the thermal cut out will activate and the pump won't restart until the motor has cooled.
If you were an electrician, or highly confident/competent with electrics, you could test the motor with a volt meter. Run the spa and as soon as the pump stops running, check the voltage at the pump. If there is voltage at the pump, then the thermal cut out on the motor has activated. Do not try checking this yourself if you're not competent to do so.
You could also do the same test at the spa pack if it's easier to do so, just locate the output to the pump.
What spa and which spa pack have you got?
