2017 Jacuzzi J470 Breaker Size Question

Recommended Posts

Hello - I recently purchased a 2017 Jacuzzi J470 hot tub second-hand. The electrical cover plate located inside the hot tub indicates that the Tub can be configured for 30 / 50 or 60 amp. However, the 2017 Manual that Jacuzzi sent to me based on the S/N of the hot tub says it should be 40/50/60 amp configurations. Is it possible the cover plate inside the hot tub was misprinted and I should go off what the manual says it should be? Jacuzzi customer service did not have a good answer other than that model and S/N of Jacuzzi should follow the attached manual they sent me, which says 40/50/60 amp configurations. I want to wire it properly and dont want to undersize / oversize the wire size...

Wire size #6 3 wire (you don't use the white N) 2 pumps and a circ would be a 50 or 60 amp. With the circuit board set for a 50 amp when you use both pumps on high and the circ pump running the heater might cut out. Circ plus 1 pump on high speed the heater will work. Once you turn on second pump heater cuts out. Circuit board set for 60 amp you can run everything at once.

Should be a schematic on inside cover that shows how/where in the board to change the power requirements.
