    Heating Issue

    I am trying to figure out what is wrong with my spa, I found it today off and the 50a breaker was tripped (not the gfci portion but the actual breaker). Had a storm the night before so I thought maybe that did it so I turned it back on and it tripped again about 5 minutes later. So I turned it back on again and started testing, also it has NOT tripped the breaker again since then and it been on for a few hrs now. I amped the motor and it's reading what the name plate shows so it's good. After it started calling for heat I checked the heater 1 and 2 to ground and the both show 120 but nothing across them. I then disconnected both leads going to the heater and I have 10ohm across the heating element and 0 to ground which makes me think the element is good. So I turned it back on without the heater connected and I then have 220 accross heater 1 to heater 2 on the board but I loose it if I reconnect the element. I replaced the board with a brand new one about 3 years ago and I thought it would have lasted longer than this but the pump and element are about 5 years old so I'm stuck at this point. Thanks.

    It may have fried the heater or it just went out... you can replace it or you can replace the whole system, people have had good luck so far with these replacement units..
