Why has my hot tub stopped working?

A common problem is powering a hot tub back up after a cleaning. Often, during the cleaning process, the GFCI will trip and shut the hot tub off. To begin troubleshooting, start with the heater since it's the most common cause of a GFCI tripping. To do this, unplug the heater.

Why does my hot tub have no power?

Faulty Wiring
This will often cause a breaker to trip or a fuse to blow, but not always. If it's the wires carrying power into or out of the transformer, you can have a no power situation. Shut off all power before touching or replacing any damaged spa wiring.

Why is the power light flashing on my hot tub?

If the Power light is blinking it indicates that the heater has gotten too hot and shut itself down by tripping the high limit circuit. Sometimes a dirty filter slowing water flow will cause this. The Ready light will be lit when the spa has reached its set temperature.

Do hot tubs have fuses?

Some hot tubs and most swim spas have an internal fuse system. These fuses are designed to blow when there are voltage spikes. When the fuses blow it protects the equipment in the hot tub, such as pumps and heater damage. If your spa has internal fuses, it is important to replace the blown fuse with an exact duplicate.

Should I leave my hot tub on all the time?

Yes, you should leave your hot tub on all of the time. Hot tubs are designed to always be switched on and it's more economical to keep the water hot than it is to heat it up from cold each time you want to use it.
