229. Support: Blower stopped working or burnt.

Regarding the the air blower not working anymore, here is some information about the air blower for your understanding. The air blower is to be connected on an air line. The blower needs to be protected from rain and moisture. It needs to be covered under a spa cabinet. Water should not enter the blower at anytime or the blower motor will get damaged. If a new Spaguts brand blower check valve is not installed or is installed improperly, most likely water have entered the air blower. Check to see if water got inside the blower. If that is the case, it affects the warranty. Even if a blower check valve is installed, the check valve is meant to stop only a hand full of water. If the entire air line has water in it, the check valve will not stop water from entering the blower. Common cause are due to water overflow in the spa, or too much occupants in the spa to cause water overflow. All blower air lines must have traps installed as a primary water back flow protection. If water did not get into the blower, the problem can be low or no voltage going to the blower motor. First check to see if any fuses are blown inside the controller box. For Spaguts.com Electronic Controller, the blower fuse has an orange label, rated SC-20. On a Pneumatic controller, the blower use the same fuse as the primary pump (SC-30, green label). Then have a Licensed Electrician verify that the correct voltage is supplied to the blower motor from the blower cord, referencing between the white and black wire. Check the blower label for voltage rating. Also make sure the blower cord and the wires connected to the blower motor are connected properly. Spa blower motors have a life span. SpaGuts standard blowers are to be used for normal spa application. Normal application for the standard blower is 20 minutes each day. If customer plans to use the blower for more than 20 minutes, customer is to turn off the blower for at least 30 minutes to cool down before turning on the blower again. Allowing the blower to run longer period of time without a resting time will wear out the motor quicker, reducing it's life span. This also applies for using the standard blower more frequently in a day. There are some customers who uses the spa blower for longer periods during each use (mainly for health reasons). A standard spa blower is not recommended for this application (long period of run time in a day). If everything above checks out fine and not mis-used, the problem can just be a bad blower motor or a bad blower circuit. If this is the case, contact Spaguts or respond to us for an RMA to be issued to authorize the return of the product for inspection per Spaguts warranty policy.
