SOURCE: Colman Spa trips GFI what is most common problem?

this should be simple ...
1.shut off the power
2.disconnect wires to heating element
3. turn power back on and see if it works if so replace heating element 45-95 dollars

if it still trips unplug all the cables from the pumps blower ozonators and see if it runs now,,,, if so plug each cable back (one at a time) until it trips again.if it trips that the problem pump etc.

99 percent of the the time its not the gfi its a device that is wet or shorted out ..Try everything else before replacing the gfi

SOURCE: What's youI just wired in my J-300 Jacuzzi hot tub. The GFI trips every time I reset it. I took the GFI out of the equation and the tub runs fine, does not trip the breaker at the main breaker box

#1. DO NOT GET INTO TUB FULL OF WATER WITH A GROUND FAULT.
2. There is a short. You need to get multimeter and start checking each part for current running to ground wire.
3) Power is ON. Connect power without GFCI.
4) Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
5) Do not touch anything directly or you will become the ground rod.
6) Ground wire must be present, and bonded back to main panel box.
7) Do not sit or touch directly on cement or bare ground. Do not touch or lean into anything made of metal.
8) Body and parts must be on sheet of plywood, or similar non-conductive dry surface.
9) Test each part with spa, but also test electric line coming from main box.
10) GFCI will also trip with any fault detected on line. So the wire coming to spa may have the fault.
11) Add a new dedicated line from main box to spa.

SOURCE: hot gfi keeps tripping

You didn't specify how your pool is set up, but the GFI tripping means you have too much power, too many devices plugged into it. I think you need an electrician, just to be safe.

My hot tub works for about 20 mins and clicks the GFI off. Then I reset the GFI and the spa comes on for about 7 mns and trips the GFI again. Is this my heater doing this?


Easy way to test for the heater issue is to disconnect the heater from the board. Disconnect both leads from board and let the spa call for heat. There is also a chance the GFI breaker is bad however most times the heater fails and the breaker is doing its job.

All the parts are working 100%,but jacuzzi trips the earth leakage after 2 hours


If your GFCI is tripping, it could be due to a bad heater element, pump, blower or ozonator. To determine which component is causing the problem, unplug the components one at a time and turn the breaker on. If the breaker does not trip after unplugging the pump, ozonator or blow, you've found the problem and you can now replace that component. If you've unplugged all three components and the breaker still trips, it's likely the heater element. Hiring a technician or replacing the heater is the next best course of action.

Need to see wiring diagram on control panel in apa


Most common reason a gfi trips is the heater or blower have failed!
Unplug each one, one at a time...
whatever is unplugged/disconnected from board and the gfi stays on, that piece is the bad item and needs repair/replacement.

I have a freeflow legend hot tub. the gfi was tripping and i found the heating element was bad. i replaced the heater element now when i power up the tub a circuit breaker trips on the board and nothing...


It sounds like there may be a short in it causing the breaker to trip. I would disconnect the wires from the new element, tape them up and test for the problem again. If it still trips it is not related to the heater element. If it still trips it is not related to the heater element and therefore additional diagnostics need to be used to find out what is is wrong.

How to wire up a spa or jacuzzi


Breaker, even GFI's are designed to trip at 135% to 600% over there load rate, so not to scare you but it depends more on the wire used from the main panel to the dryer/hot tube then the breaker. A GFI's claim to fame is the speed at which it will trip if voltage is detected on the ground side of the breaker. So to answer a question with a question, Can you overload a GFI without tripping it, Yes you can, just be careful the life of your hot tube motor and heater could be in danger if you overload the circuit.
