Hi my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing and repair field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today. Have you recently filled the spa? Replaced filters?
Sorry for the delay. I was not online again until now. There is likely just air trapped and causing air lock. Have you released any air from the motor unions?
Did the problem happen after filling or did it run fine after filling and then start to have an issue?
First try running without the filter to see if that will push any air out. Place the filter in the tub so that it soaks while doing this. That will soak the filter and remove any air trapped in the filter. If that does not get it going then loosen the union on the motor enough that it lets the air trapped out. It will hiss then turn to a trickle of water. That should get it going then tighten the union and replace the filter.
The piping for the pump motor has unions on it for servicing.
