The manufacturer should have a "Hot Line", manned by professionals to guide a New customer through the starting process. (No matter what)Don't Drink and Drive, Ever!!!
Sorry, I missed that. I just skimmed the posts. I would at least make sure power was getting to the hot tub before I go calling the manufacturer. That will be the first question they ask.

I will respectfully disagree with you. When someone buys a big-ticket item, where comprehensive technical details are involved they expect it to work smoothly without any problems, at least initially. The dealer is best equipped to handle any problems that may arise. Either through their own employees or independent technicians authorized by them. (IMHO)!

Circuit Panel Question


Turn the breaker with the test button completely off (handle all the way to the right). Pull out the red piece that has the handle at the hot tub disconnect and set it aside. Turn the breaker back on (handle to the left). Does it go all the way on? Does the test button now work? If the answer is yes, the problem is in the tub. If the answer is no, the breaker is bad.

What if there was a ground fault in the disconnect?
