hot tub pump

WE have a Coleman Calif cooperage hot tub. 10 years old.
we had broken pipes--my husband fixed--now when we refilled and started it the pump starts and immediately shuts off. The heat light blinks off and on.
any suggestions?

Hi bagley, sounds like you have an air lock in your plumbing, when you turn the pump on, sounds like the heater is comming on also, but without water your hi limit switch kicks off the power, I suggest without turning on the power remove the cartridge filter and after wrapping a rag around the end of your hose put the end of the hose into the pipe where you removed the filter you should see air being discharged from the jets, you can also put the hose in the air channel this would be comewhere on the lip of the spa ? of in that area should have a screw you open to allow air into the jets " you may have a small plug on the face of the pump , unscrewing this plug will allow the plumbing to purge the air. after trying this method turn the heater off, and then turn the pump on, after you have " caught prime " the pump is pumping water you can turn the heater on.

hope this helps, steve
