Breaker weirding out


The Breaker to my hot tub is stuck 1/2 way between on and off. No power to tub of course. It wont flip to the off position or the on position. Any suggestions?

Hi and Welcome Tmak, to the best DIY'r site on the web.

Sounds like you may need a new breaker for that tub.

Also, you need to find out WHY it failed. Snoop around a little.....

What brand name this breaker is ?

I am pretty sure it is damaged but before you pull the damaged breaker you will have to check around to see what else the damged items do show up.

Most breaker is pretty easy to swap over but few brand name are not that easy to swap it over.

And what amparage the breaker it is ? it will be stamped on the handle itself or next to it.

The breaker size for hottub will varies a bit plus if this is a GFCI breaker as well they are not cheap espcally with two pole verison { this part if you do have GFCI breaker then you have no choice but follow the code with it.}

Merci.
Marc
