    Hot tub wire cut / gecko topside controller

    Lots of pics below
    bought our house a few months ago and the hot tub was there so I don't have much info on it. If anyone knows a brand or etc it would be appreciated.

    Randomly a few weeks ago we noticed the hot tub was running as if everything was on (pumps, lights, etc). I flipped the breaker and left it off for two days, turned it back on and everything was still running wide open.

    I crawled under the deck and it looks like the wire going from the Gecko K-8 topside control is sliced in two spots. Bought some mouse bait to hopefully stop this in the future.

    Should I just replace the whole top side controller or can you do just the wire? I have a repairman coming out next week but would rather do it myself if possible. Or could it be something else?

    Can't tell from your photos; is there exposed copper? If not the wire is probably fine...just wrap some e-tape around it.

    Yes. From what I can tell at least two wires are cut through. I assume it's an animal because it wasn't me...

    Just wanted to be sure everything would kick on if those wires are cut...
