If you suspect that your hot tub has an electric malfunction like a short circuit or a fried component, the best thing to do is back away from it and not approach it. Instead, cut all electricity to the hot tub, and call a local Arvada electrician to troubleshoot it. As you well know, water and electricity don’t mix well, and trying to troubleshoot the problem on your own can be very risky.
There are, of course, many possible malfunctions that could be attributed to the hot tub’s electric wiring. What’s worse is that not all of them are clearly associated with the wiring, and someone who hasn’t worked on the electric system of hot tubs for a long time will not always be able to pinpoint what the damage really is.
Of course, symptoms will vary. The circuit breaker might trip every time you try to turn on your hot tub, or maybe the hot tub works, but isn’t able to heat the water as required. If you also smell strange odors or hear strange noises coming from the hot tub, it’s best to turn it off and turn to the professional Arvada electricians for help.
In each case, rather than risk it, you should always consider calling a local electrician for help. They can inspect the hot tub safely, determine what the problem is and suggest possible repair measures that could get it up and running again in no time.
