    Spa Blower turning on when pool is shut off

    My Spa blower located at the equipment on the side of my house is turning on every 20 minutes or so even with the pool equipment turned off. The blower will then turn off after 2-3 minutes. Any suggestions as to what the problem may be or how I can get the blower to quit coming on? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Do you have a control system?
    Spa side remotes can fail and cause things to come on and go off.

    No remote control system on the equipment

    How is it turned on and off?

    It's an outdoor spa blower fan w/ an on/off switch located on the underside of the housing case.

    About the only thing that could be happening is that the switch is shorting out. Maybe some water getting in it and causing it to short out periodically. Strange I know but it could happen.

    Some of the old units only switched one leg on the 220v blowers.
    If the other leg was grounding/shorting that could be it also.
    Pull it apart if you can, or get a nice new quiet one, they are relatively cheap.
