Steve, I would check out the heating elements to be sure they are working, also check the wires in back of the heater jacket. When you do the BE SURE YOU HAVE THE BREAKER TURNED OFF!
Thanks for the reply, I have checked the reset on the top element and have never found it kicked. I havn’t checked the wiring. Based on the intermitent nature (it will heat al of a sudden and then kick the breaker) I wondered if there was a restriction to the water intake (maybe solder in the valve) but ther is no shortage of water volume or pressure allthough the water has a pretty bad sulfer odor which is somewhat typical of beach water.
Thanks again, Steve
