Thread: My hot top pump stopped

    My hot top pump stopped

    My working hot tub suddenly stopped yesterday.
    Control board has 240v power and topside panel has light and power.
    There is a FLO error on the topside panel.
    When i push jet 1, 2, 3, and light, the indication shows up but nothing really works.

    The temperature was 95, so i don't think it is over heat safety sutt off.

    My main pump does not have Mmmm sound at all.
    I check the power to the pump motor (it is 240v 2 speed motor with four wires; photo attached).
    only black wire has 110V, red wired has 0.

    The pump is 8 years old and yesterday the weather was freezing.
    Do i need to replace the pump or motor?

    You should be measuring 110V on 2 of the wires with ground and there should be 220V across those 2.
    Sounds like there is a switch somewhere that is not sending power to the High or Low wire to turn the motor on.
