Spa repairs Burnt wires; melted insulation.

Components associated:

  • Terminal Connections

A) Burnt wires or melted insulation often indicates, and was likely caused by a loose connection. Remove bad section of wire and replace with new wire.

Note: After this type of problem has occurred, merely re-tightening the connections may not solve the problem. Since the damaged copper wire has oxidized, its internal resistance will now be higher, causing more heat.

"It's just like the name says.  Actually easier to install the new spa pack than I thought it would be.  I appreciated the expert tech support you provided by phone, the new pack arrived promptly, and my spa is up and running again just like new.  Can't thank you enough for the great service and fair prices too."
