Troubleshooting a Hot Tub Problem

Wiring a Hot Tub Cord: I need help with an electrical problem and error message for my new hot tub.

Hot Tub Error Codes and Error Messages
Electrical Question: I need help with an electrical problem and error message for my new hot tub.

Does what he is saying make sense? All my plumber did was connect a different 4-wire connection. It doesn’t seem to me that the internal wiring should change.

This electrical question came from: Catherine, from Springfield, Georgia.

Additional Comments: Love it!

    I’m getting a low voltage shock from my spa, it’s OK when your in but when you get out and touch something you get a mild shock.

    • Dave Rongey says:

      Hi Bob,
      The electric shock you are describing is Extremely Dangerous!
      I would strongly advise you to turn off the power source to the spa and have a qualified electrician inspect and test the wiring, the spa components, and make sure there is GFCI protection installed and working correctly according to code.
      I highly advise that you do not use the spa until the shock hazard has been identified and corrected.
      Be Safe,
      Dave
