My hot tub tripped the breaker on the GFCI plug. Plug would not reset so I replaced the plug. Plugged the hot tub back in and the light came on (lavitron GFCI plug) indicating power but the hot tub will not come back on. No lights on the display, no sounds, nothing at all. I have a smart touch 1000. Is there a reset button or fuse that I am missing??

Check for a 20 or 30 amp fuse. Sometimes those can be on the circuit board or sometimes right beside the board in a fuse holder.

Thanks MaryH. I'll look for it.

I'm having a hard time finding a fuse and the owners manual doesn't mention it.

It may not have one then. Did you check your incoming power at TB1 to make sure you are supplying proper power after replacing the GFCI cord?

I did end up finding two fuses but they both appeared to be ok. I am getting power to the box. Checked connections to make sure nothing was loose. Still nothing. I guess I will have to break down and call the repair man. Is it possible to completely blow the circuit board and if so will this cause nothing at all to work? I could order a new circuit box or what ever its called (the thing with the heater attached) but I hate to spend that much money only to find out that, that wasn't my problem.

I know there is power getting to the box but I don't know how much. The GFCI cord end appears to have a small crack. The green light is still on but is it possible that I'm not getting enough power to the box and if that is the case would that make everything fail even the lights on the control panel?

That could be an issue, you really need to verify that the spa is getting proper power to it. If you do not have the means then yes you may need to call a repair man. It may save you money in the long run.
