Just purchased a home and inherited a spa that was already installed (in ground) with the components under the deck. The spa had not run for some time; so I spent some time cleaning it up, fired it up, and all works well. Spa heats up, jets work (they're weak, which I attribute to the previous homeowner installing a 1 hp motor for such a large tub), and blower works. I've got the heater set to automatic, to heat based on the built in thermostat, but I've noticed that the "reset" button trips after a while; the next day after getting it up and running, the water was hot, but when I went to press the blower and jets - nothing. the control box was down - I had to press the reset button on the control box to get everything up and running, which I'm guessing is like a GFCI? (however the main, stand-alone breaker does not trip).
The control box is a "Splash Spa A5500", I can't find any manual for it, and all components appear to be in good condition; no rust, corrosion, etc. All connections appear to be solid, and went in with a temp gun tracing all the wires, and noticed pretty much ambient temp at all of the connections except for 3 - the temp where the wire meets the connector is at about 125-130*f ; is that too high? Could that be tripping the reset button?
Also, anyone know where I can find a manual for that control box? It's as if it doesn't exist - I cant find any resource online for it.
