Hello,My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you. I am looking over your question now and will respond shortly.
Is the plug a GFI plug/cord?
The plug on the gfi is 99% of the time the issue.
If you have 120v at outlet....but NOT 120v at the opposite end of the cord where it wires to board....then you need a new cord.
Do not click for any extra pmt....you do not need a call
correct...it is the switch inside the male prong assembly that goes bad.
You can buy a new cord with gfi and change with only unhooking 3-4 wires.
The cord usually comes with gfi for water bearing equipment.
If it does NOT then it must be wired into a gfi outlet like in a bathroom.
It must have a gfi one way or the other. Or you can wire with regular plug and use THIS
if you have a couple minutes I will draw up something.
you are correct!..Use a gfci..or a regular plug with the home depot switch.
Attached is rudimentary drawing.
And I would love to retort to Kotter comment about a rubber hose but I must watch behavior on the site:)
120v is very generic....115 - 124v = 120v in this world
Put a meter on the black and white connections in tub to determine voltage present
Yes the cord will be available at home improvement stores.
Meter; set to AC volts~ 250 and below....
Red meter lead to black wire
black meter lead to white wire
Something tells me you already know the basics but wanted 100% confirmation...
Good to be sure.
If you need more info just return and reply.
Once you are all set just rate service at top of page to close question.
It is likely a lift and pull retainer.
Depending on age it could be a push compression fitting.
Try the "up and off" and if that fails give a bit more than moderate pressure straight out. I will be offline for a while but will respond as soon as I can.
that is correct.
You will be replacing the cord.
Have you located the end of the wire where it attaches in tub?
