This is an instructional guide detailing the usage and maintenance of the 120 Volt Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter.
A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) or Residual Current Device (RCD) is a device used to reduce the risk of electric shock.
It shuts off an electric circuit when it detects that current is flowing along an unintended path, possibly through water or through a person.
Since the GFCI detects ground faults, it can also prevent some electrical fires and reduce the severity of other fires by interrupting the flow of electric current.
It is important to inspect and test the GFCI prior to spa use. Check for signs of water damage, cracked or broken housing, overheating, loose or damaged plug prongs or any other issue that will affect its safety and performance.
If you DO hear a "click" right after pressing the Reset button but the spa powers on briefly or not at all, this is an indication of a potential Control Pack/PCU fault.
If you DO NOT hear a "click" right after pressing the Reset button and the Control Pack does not power ON, this is an indication of a potential GFCI fault.
Do not use the spa if the GFCI test fails (the power does not turn off when you press the test button), please contact Customer Service.
NOTE: Do not plug the GFCI into an extension cord. Your spa should be plugged directly into a dedicated household outlet to reduce chances of damage.
Please also ensure that the plug makes full contact with the outlet.
If water gets into the GFCI plug, it will cause it to trip. Be sure to protect the plug from rain/snow.
