    Spa heater kicks on then shuts off

    I recently moved into a new home that has pool and spa. The problem is the heater kicks on, then shuts off right away. CAn somebody point me in the right direction of what part needs to be replaced or what needs to be fixed?

    Thanks a ton

    Some spa heaters have 2 sensors that screw into them, the 2nd one for over-temp protection. If that's the case, the 1st sensor could be telling it that the heat needs to be on, and then a defective 2nd one could be shutting it down. Can't say more without some info else you could be sent on a wild goose chase.
    Professional product developer using & maintaining a dozen or so spas from 150 to 550 gallons, many pools from 1200 to 40,000 gallons (above-ground and in-ground), and a half-dozen test tanks.
    If it's not one thing, it's usually several others!
