    Hot Tub pump won't run

    I have a hot tub I just replaced the motor. Now when I push the button to turn on the jets all I get is a click. Anyone else have this issue? Anyone know what the problem might be?
    Thank You

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    So you just replaced the motor. Has this new motor ever worked?

    As is said: The first thing to check is the last thing you touched. Sounds like the pump may not have been hooked up correctly.

    Or the old motor took a fuse with it? Is this a stand alone tub or built in to a pool with its own pump? Hard to say until we know that.
    The one thing that I have learned about pump/wet end combos is to follow the instructions that you are given to wire up the new motor. For some reason the wet end companies that buy the motors like to switch things around and if you follow the wiring schematic on the motor you get a click.

    But if this is a stand alone tub it is likely the 30a fusible link on the control panel. Get a multimeter and check the continuity across the fuses, you will find your culprit. Turn power off before doing this.

    If it is a pool/spa combo, you probably wired motor wrong.
