: The three large relays arranged vertically on the left that feed the
: heater elements are most at risk for failure over time due to the
: high current arcing that occurs when they make and break. The 12 VDC
: coils RARELY fail. I cannot remember the last time I had one with a
: failed coil. Changing them all is certainly easy enough, but probably
: not necessary. I wouldn't bother replacing functioning thermostats
: nor the high limit. Replace them only when they fail. If they start
: to lose calibration, you can either re-calibrate the screw mechanism
: or readjust the knobs inside the brown control box. As these
: thermostats age, they tend to run hotter and you can simply turn them
: down a bit inside the box. If the bridge rectifiers are really old,
: you may want to replace them. They do tend to fail with age. Use
: rectifiers that are rated a minimum of 6 amps. I've found some nice,
: inexpensive 20 amp rectifiers at Mouser and Digi-key.
Bummer.. place I was looking at with a reasonable price on the heater element only had 1 in stock and is now out.. couldn't find any reviews of them and they had maybe 200 items up on their website. Obviously a hard part to find from a reputable dealer. It appears a lot of smaller websites say they have the element, but they don't have real-time inventory (lets me add hundreds of the element and no way they have that many). Thought I tracked down one for $377 from a legit site that also sells on eBay, said 16 in stock on their website.. but the seller got back to me and said they don't have it in stock & suppliers say it's no longer available.
John, do you know any reputable sites I can buy the #2209 heater element from? I'll have to decide if I want to pony up $500-600 if that's what it comes down to. I sent Jacuzzi an email, not that I think they're going to tell me anything other than "no longer support that old of a hot tub", but figured it was worth a shot.
