This may be due to clogged jets. Also, if this is a new application....the valves under the spa may not be in the up position to release the water to run into the pump and through to the jets. It may be a top side control issue as well. Check for error codes.

Our hot tub will only heat when jets are on?


Depending on the design tubs and pools need water to be circulating before heater runs to prevent the heater from burning out. If the circulation pump runs constantly the heater should work any time but a plugged or restricted filter might not let it flow like it needs to.
If the pump only runs in the jet mode then it might be the way it is designed.
Try checking with the manufacturers website for an FAQ section.

Check your suction plumbing to be sure it is sealed and tight. Then force some water through the pipe to see if anything is blocking it.

Just drained and refilled, plugged back in and hot tub is not heating. Three lights flashing at temp controls. Is there a reset


Most hot tubs have a freeze protection that will lock you out and run the pumps full blast with no heater if the temerature is under 50 degrees F.The circulating pumps create heat until the water temp is above 50 degrees, and then the heater will come on after that.
Hot tubs do this to protect themselves and it is normal operation.

My hot tub control panel keeps showing OH and the temp of the water is 99 degrees any sugestions?


It sounds like your circulation pump is not keeping up with the heater. Check for debris in the pump impeller. If this is 24 hour circulation pump, it is probably failing. New units are about $200 US

Hot tub heating is working but pump has stopped


you may have a system that uses a small circulating pump that circulates the water thru the heater to keep water temp at proper level (this is usually the case with hot springs spas and is because it is the most cost effective way to maintain constant water heat without using a full size pump or two speed pump just to push water past the heater core. therefore the issue is you have a problem with your jet pump and it has nothing to do with the circulating and heating portion of the spa. you can check to see if there are any reset buttons in or near the equipment as well as open enclosures to make sure everything is clean and dry also make use any contacts on spa skirting are secured propertly

Whirlpool Pump - Hums, no water flow...


The impeller and/or motor shaft is stuck or seized. If accessible you can try rotating the motor shaft with a visegrip plier or similar tool to see if it will come lose. Otherwise you should consider having the pump taken out and overhauled. Often the shaft seal begins leaking and result in water damage to the motor bearings. Bearings can be replaced, but compare labor and parts for overhaul to simply replacing the whole pump.

What does FL mean on my hot tub?? water doesnt circulate but is still sort of warm...


FL could be a code for low flow. If you have no circulation this sounds like it. If your pump runs and you have no flow you could have a problem with your pump. Or if you have the tub drained then it could be an air lock, if you open the drain valve till you get water out that should fix that. Also check to be sure the isolation valves are open under the spa. I hope this helps.
