Understand that this information is beingprovided as-is and without warranty or guarantee. As with all electricalcomponents and devices, all work should be performed by a licensed spa or pooltechnician. Serious injury or death can occur if a component is improperlyrepaired or installed.

There are several reasons the breaker can trip. It could bea bad pump, bad heater, GFCI or wiring issue.... Typically unplugging eachcomponent will help isolate which component is causing the trip. It is rare fora board to cause a breaker trip, so if all components (including both legs ofthe heater) are disconnected and the breaker continues to trip then you move onto wiring or the GFCI.

Breaker tripping


This could be a heating element issue. it could be a bad element. Disconnect the two leads going to the heating element and then turn the breaker back on. If it will run and not trip the breaker then you have found the problem.
On the heater tube there is a silver sticker that will have the information you need to identify what model heater you have and what the kw of the element is. It will either be 4 Kw or 5.5 Kw
You may contact us for more information about this or purchase the replacement element at www.uspartscenter.com

I have a balboa board #55098 and nothing works. I have disconnected everything and then tried powering up and it only clicks until the breaker trips any suggestions?


As with any troubleshooting over the Internet, this is like giving a haircut over the phone. So, that being said, this problem could be any number of reasons.

Here are some things you should have a spa technician look at (not in any specific order):

  • Power connections
  • Relay
  • Whether the transformer is seated properly
  • Whether there are loose wires
Disconnected all the components and see if it still does the same thing. If not, then one by one, reconnect the components until you isolate the problem. If the problem persists, then you might have a larger problem like a blown circuit board, etc.


Hope that helps!

This is most likely a heater issue. The technician needs todisconnect both heater leads to see if the breaker will hold. This will help you determine where theelectrical problem is occurring and why it is tripping.

Colman Spa trips GFI what is most common problem? GFI test good. Pump disconnected still trips, is heater most likely? Can you replace only heater? thanks


this should be simple ...
1.shut off the power
2.disconnect wires to heating element
3. turn power back on and see if it works if so replace heating element 45-95 dollars

if it still trips unplug all the cables from the pumps blower ozonators and see if it runs now,,,, if so plug each cable back (one at a time) until it trips again.if it trips that the problem pump etc.

99 percent of the the time its not the gfi its a device that is wet or shorted out ..Try everything else before replacing the gfi
