You're right. SHV6803UC/U12. not C

The line voltage comes right from the source to the power switch, see the attached diagram, a1. Are you saying you don't have any power at that switch at all or just power out of that switch?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No power to switch at all but hard wire
power at the box

So there has to be a break in the wiring between the box and the switch. Check the wiring where it bends around the tub, that is a common place fro breakage.
