I secured our hot tub when the family was out of town for a week and since it
needed cleaning, I ended up leaving it off for a few weeks.
I got around to cleaning it up, refilled and when I went to energize it, the
breaker wouldn't restore power. It doesn't stay fully up in the powered
position and just drops back to the tripped (middle position).
I haven't been in the cabinet while it was secured. Gonna go dig in and see
what i can see. All I can think is that maybe there is some condensation...
I do realize that I have not been routinely checking the ground fault function
of the breaker.
I have had breakers fail before...
My trouble shooting plan is a good visual check, then disconnect the power
feed at the spa and see if the breaker will energize.
If so, then I know the problem is with the spa itself.
