This is an instructional guide showing how to correct an electrical issue in the GFCI Circuit Breaker if a spa is tripping after being installed.
A GFCI Circuit Breaker is required for the installation of a 240V spa. This is to be installed by a licensed electrician using three wires (hot, hot, neutral) plus the ground (copper wire).
If your spa is tripping the breaker after being installed for the first time (new tub or old tub that has been moved to another location), this might be due to incorrect installation of the neutral wire from the hot tub.
The neutral (white or blue) wire coming in from the hot tub should NOT be connected to the neutral bar as shown in the picture below (red arrow).
Only the neutral wire from the house and the "pigtail" wire from the GFCI breaker should be connected to the neutral bar. Instead, the neutral wire from the tub should connect directly to the GFCI breaker similarly to the hot wires from the tub.
NOTE: On some GFCI breakers, there will be a sticker indicating which lug the neutral from the tub should connect to.
