Hi there, I'm Cole. I see your asking about spas and I think I can help. I can run you through how to test the element if you would like. do you have a multi-meter you can use?

I do.
Pool and Spa Expert: Cole, Salesman replied 7 months ago

ok so first test i would do is either voltage to the element or the continuity through the element...... is your element 220 volts? if so its usually pretty quick to test each leg going to the element to ground. you should have 110 volts to each side (if its 220 volt element) if you have 110 to each for a total of 220 volts going right to your element and its not heating than your element is bad...... if you want to check the element its self than what you do is ( with power off to tub) pull both wires off the element and test for ohms from one lead to the other.... you should have ohm's.. if you do not than your element is dead...... so to back up a little if you test and your only getting 110 volts to one side of the element than i will walk you through how to test the other incoming devices that can stop you from getting your other 110 leg.... i hope this helps. we will get it figured out....have a good day...
