Help with spa freeze damage

The attached picture shows a box at the rear of the spa controller on my Jacuzzi J-335. You can see in the picture that the plastic barb fitting has broken off inside the black box (lower right). Also pictured is a similar attachment point/port at the top of the black box. Firstly, any help in identifying these parts would be appreciated. Second, I have tried a couple of methods of extraction, but can't remove the remaining, male part of the barb fitting from the lower right port. It is threaded, right? Any tips for removal? Finally, I don't think there was anything attached to the port on top. Would that make sense? I would appreciate any advice in how I might get this back together...or what I should replace to get up and running. This is a J335 spa controller dated 6/3/08. Thanks.

Welcome to the forums.

Could be molded in. Could be glued and threaded in.
The closest parts I can find to that are the pressure switch or circulation pump.
Are there wires going to it ?

Jacuzzi pumps
flow switch

no external wires, but it is attached to the controller.

So, I took the plunge and removed the control panel. Turns out, it is the heater assembly. I've removed the entire assembly. The question remains, could this possibly be glued in? Now that it is out, I am going to give it another go with the extractor, which I tried when it was in place, but I was afraid to force it.

Well, bad news. Use of the extractor cracked the heater housing. Ordered a replacement.

Hmmm..... strange. I looked at all the available parts for that spa and the heater looked different.

Thanks for giving it a shot. Part arrives Thursday. With luck, and cooperating weather, I can get it back together next weekend.
