Question about Pool & Spa
I have an older model Dreammaker x-400 spa. Everything works great until the controller shuts off the pump, either because it has reached the set temp or the timer is up. The pump stops pumping water like it should for a few seconds, then there is a repeated clicking sound and the pump surges on and off with the click. The only way to stop it is to cut the power to the spa. I have a reasonable amount of basic electrical knowledge and was hoping you may be able to lead me in the right direction as to where to start looking for the problem as this will be my first time working on a spa. Thank you for any help you can give.
This might be a problem with the topside control. When the spa is clicking, try unplugging the topside control and see whether or not the problem stops. If the jet button is stuck on the topside, the pump will turn on-off-on-off-on-off until the topside is unplugged.
If unplugging the topside worked, replace it.

Read, this model posted has a main board in back that controls the refer. Your problem sounds like the overload and relay on the compressor but you need to do a test to verify. On the main board in back there is a blue harness, 3 pronged, that is marked line, defr and comp. Lower left hand corner. You need to get a jumper wire with alligator clips and with the plug out, jump line to comp. Now plug it back in, this will send 120V directly to the compressor. See if it starts. If not and it does it clicking thing, chances are it's the overload and relay, or the compressor itself. You have five years warranty on the compresser. If it starts, it's the board it's the board giving you the problem. This of course is for the GSH model posted...Catriver..post back.

Ok the motherboard is malfunctioning. Ive observed this exact problem before. Replace the board and all will be normal again. If you keep lettig it click and click it may finally kill that relay that you descibed to me or even worse the compressor itself.
