I have a jet setter model j hot tub that we just purchased

Customer Question

Hello, I have a jet setter model j hot tub that we just purchased used. I'm not sure what the year model is. I think it's an 04-06. The ready light is flashing. I have unplugged the unit for ~45 seconds but the light still is flashing. I believe the circulation pump is working because there are bubbles coming out of th floor drain. Where should I start with troubleshooting this?

I do not see any buttons. I will add pics of the black box on the tub

the 2 cables on right...follow to where they go in the tub and post a pic of wht they attach to. It looks like this years model may have remote resets

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The cables go to temp sensors I think. On the heater. I'll try to get a pic. It's dark so we will try our best

Thank you...this is the autoreset version.

If you turn all power off to tub for 1 minute..and then back on...does the same exact thing happen or does the unit try to run first?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
There's a few clicks then the light starts to flash again
Expert:  Billy replied 9 months ago.

Ok you may see bubbles from drain but I doubt the main pump is running as it should.

Have you verified the ain pump runs?

Removed filters....and if needed do you have a meter to check power to pump?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The pump runs. There seems to be plenty of flow out of the jets. Would it help to have a video?
