Hello all, hoping somebody can give me a little advice. We purchased a home with a 2004 Hotsprings Sovereign hot tub installed under the deck. I filled the tub today, connected the power, and then tried to start the jets. The motor hummed for about 5 seconds, then the breaker trips. Tried this a couple times, to no avail. The pump was not frozen due to the cold, the room it sits in was warm all day and I even pointed a space heater at the pump cabinet for over 2 hours. I got some advice from a local dealer who said to try and manually turn the shaft while humming, and that did turn the shaft, but it would not go. So, I believe I need a new pump. My question is: does anyone know exactly how to remove the old pump? The only way I can see is to remove the control panel somehow, and then the metal bracket. Is there an easier way? Any help would be appreciated. Trying to figure out the most cost effective way to get this thing going. I would love to be able to remove the pump myself, and then have the motor rebuilt for about $130 vs. calling in a tech who will have to replace the motor with a new one for several times that amount. If you look at the picture, it is definitely packed in there.
