Open the access panel under the unit where the pump is located. Place a small electric heater in the cavity up off the floor and not pointed toward anything close so it won't melt. put it on a low setting and close up the access panel.
Leave power to the hot tub disconnected.
Check after an hour but unplug heater befor you open access panel again in case water may be leaking somewhere. More than likely you will probably find that you have some leaks when it thaws out.

Once it thaws out you'll probably have to replace the heater or the pump. one or the other failed unless it was due to a power failure.

I have a spa berry 2 person hot tub. Tried resetting it but as soon as I let go of the reset button it trips the breaker. Can't get it to stay on. Tub is 4 yrs old. Where do we start?


Melisa, Breaker/GFI may be going bad. You may have to get an electrician to check for short or faulty motor/heater, etc. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Hot tub stuck in PR mode.


Are the pumps primed, the code represents that the pumps are being primed and should only stay on 2 - 5 minutes. If the pumps are not primed then you may have an air lock or dirty filters. You need to release the air or clean or replace the filters and your pumps will prime.

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.

according to your problem, the power was cut to the house; then power was restored and everything went back on that was on except the hot water heater. when you tried to reset the water heater breaker, it wouldn't reset. the hot water heater also won't reset. the problem is not w/the breaker, the problem is w/the hot water heater. you need to buy a new reset for the hot water heater which means a new control unit, since the reset is hooked to the contol unit. this is answered by an electrician w/35 yrs experience. the breaker controls the hot water heater. since the breaker won't reset, the problem lies in the control unit for the hot water unit.

Bubbler stopped working overnight, pond froze over, power source is now okay, brought bubbler inside to clean/thaw and tried again but still didn't work


If I am correct, it is possible the unit could have debris causing a malfunction. The second idea is that a blockage might be in the supply side and lastly the unit froze and caused a crack internally which makes the unit unusable.

My breaker is conected to a hot tub. tub was working fine in auto mode. Turned on jets and breaker tripped. will not reset can you help me


I am assuming this is a GFCI circuit breaker? If it is it will have a "test" button on the breaker. When you say "jets" i'm assuming you mean when you turn on the blower to make the air bubbles? It could be you have a problem with the blower motor. When you start the blower, it trips the breaker. Be sure the blower is in off position when you reset the breaker. The most common fault though on a spa/hot tub is with the heater. If the element goes bad, and current flows to ground, it will trip the GFCI breaker. Again try and turn all functions off. Reset breaker, and then turn on one at a time till the breaker trips. First the pump, then the heat, then the blower.

You should start with checking all your breakers to be sure the breaker did not pop just half of your breaker. This is something you should do with all your breakers. When you do this you should shut down all your 220v breakers so you don't get bleed back through the system. Other than that you need to look for resets on the tub. The heater is a good place to start and don't forget the gfci's on the tub or in the bath or laundry room.

Residential electric hot water heater throwing br


If you reset the water heater the first time you were without, Then odds are it is the water heater. probably an element went back. If the power off check for continuity.
