Question about Pool & Spa

Open Question

I have a Cameo Freedom spa. Using a spa power 600, which has just been replaced after it continuously caused the power to trip. The spa ran fine for a few weeks. It is now coming up with an error 6- thermal cut out tripped. This code states " this error indicates that the safety electromechanical over temp cut out on the heater has operated. This is not necessarily a problem with the SP600. It may have occured from an airlock around the element, high temps during shipping, or failure of the pump. This automatic cutout will only reset once the element has cooled below about 38 degrees. The unit must then be reset before it will resume operation. The pump works fine if the temp is set below the temp of the water, ie not heater. I have cracked the connectors on both sides of the SP600 to possibly release any airlock. Could this be another faulty element????

SOURCE: kenmore wall oven model 911.4088816

i believe this oven was designed to reach a set temp and then interm shutdown to keep that set temp..If oven elements turn back on when temp is raised higher than previous temp ..then there is a good chance its working properly.this is a saftey feature to keep elements on stove from overheating..

SOURCE: Oven temp hits about 50

some model s you can adjust the tempt 30 t0 50 deg in 10 deg at a time . if your model will adjust then pull the oven knob off and look at inside and if there is adjustment that is wher it is . and no adjust ment markings .then the thermo will have to be replaced. very costley .. part # 73001316 @ 363.81 .. so look very good at the knob for the adjustment . other thing you could do is adjust ty setting the tempt higher like when you want 350 deg set it for 400 .. and so on ... hope this hepled mm feed back pls .. and thanks for ysing fix ya ..

My Apollo Spa shuts off and on when high speed is pushed. I replaced pump and it is the same. Any help is appreciated.

Check your voltage to that pump. If the pump is set to accept high-voltage of 240 V, and you are only providing low-voltage of the 110-120 V then you will be getting that symptom.

Spa has 20amp fuse that blows whenever I either restart spa or turn on jet pump. I disconnected pump and it ran fine until I restarted the spa and fuse blew again.

something is drawing a load when it shouldnt be. remove all circ pumps, booster pumps, and disconnect heater element. turn on hot tub and see if it trips. then do the same, re connecting the element, and pumps, one at a time. when it does trip, thats where the problem lies. bad pump or element

My hydroquip 9000 trips the gfci when it starts now. the heater,pump,blower and everything was working fine till the power went out. when the power came on the spa didn't work? there is a reset button on...

If the GFCI is tripping, the reset button will not do anything. If it was fine before the electricity shut off, it is possible that while the pump was not running, water got into the inside of the pack, and that is what is causing the GFCI to trip. An electrical surge may have damaged the GFCI, itself. Those are the two things that might be related to the power going out.
The most common cause for tripping GFCI's are a heater that has a ground fault. A distant second is a bad GFCI. If it starts to run, then quickly trips, it is almost certainly the heater.

We have a 2004 Balboa series spa and the breaker keeps tripping what could cause this? Everything has been working fine.

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.

Whilst using my flipsaw recently it jammed in a peice of timber and tripped the power, whenever I plug it in and try it now it trips the power straight away, it's a Dewalt D27105

Check the saw for freedom of turning motion (by hand). If ok, then you may have a defective circuit breaker. Check by replacement. Hope this helps!

We recently had a power cut since then our spa has not gone it keeps tripping circut breaker, have tried powertools in socket and they work fine, it does run for about 5 secs b4 tripping? thanks

If it ran fine on the breaker before then you probably need to buy and install a new breaker. The don't cost much so you should try that. Good luck!
