Ok then. Here we go.
Are you saying that you can no longer control the hot tub manually? None of the buttons work on the control panel?
Let me know and I'll try and help.Steve
When you turn it on, what temperature is the hot tub set to? Note I'm not asking what temperature the water is, BUT what temperature is the top side controller asking for?Let me know.
So when you turn on the spa, it is set for 103 degrees but the pumps do not come on?
Ok. Then can you tell me what you think is not working? You told me that it doesn't come on automatically.
So if you turn on the breaker, nothing happens? Even if you wait for 3-5 minutes?
Unfortunately, I cannot call you at this time.Does the spa start up after 3-5 minutes without input from the buttons on the controller?
Ok. Let me know. That sounds normal.
If it only reached 95 degrees then you may have issues with your temperature sensors.Unfortunately, I am going to be off line for a few days so I am going to opt out of this question which will allow other experts to chime in.
Hello I am Wendy and I will try to finish this for you
If I understand correctly you set the tub for 95 and it heated to 95 as you wished. I am also understanding that you are shutting off the spa at night because it tripped a breaker? which is a good call. I am assuming that you have a cord with a GFCI on it for the power. When you push the "test" button on the cord does it trip the breaker? Also, how old is the unit? Is it outside or inside?
