Hot tub won't stay at set temperature

I set my 1999 infinity atlantis SE outdoor hot tub to 104 degrees. I was in it for 1.5 hours and the temp dropped to 100 degrees despite still having it set. Aren't they supposed to maintain the same temperature the entire time you use it?

    I have only sat in it for 90 minutes at a time so I am uncertain if it would continue to drop, but at the rate it was , I would presume it would continue to drop. Now I how would I find out if I have a thermostat problem?

I have a 2002 Infinity 6 man spa that I just got from a friend. I am also an Electrician. I had to replace the Spa pack because it wasn't working. Once I replaced the Spa Pack and used the tub it got up to temp no problem but once I got in the temperature slowly dropped and it couldn't keep up. After some research and discussion with a pool tech I found out that there is a jumper on some spa packs. It is a LC (low current) / HC (high current) jumper. It limits the current (amperage) that your tub draws. If you are running it on the LC setting it keeps the tub at low current by not running the heater when the jets are on. (this way it keeps the current low by running one only at a time) If you set it for HC it will allow high current to be drawn and let the heater and the jets be on at the same time. On my spa pack it is P26 Jumper. I have found it is also listed as Jumper 4 on some spa packs. the jumpers are located in the lower right of the circuit board. Make sure you shut off the power to the tub and know what you're doing before you attempt changes. you can also google "Gecko Spa Pack Service Manual" and you will find the manual for your tubs spa pack. Good luck.

This sounds like a thermostat problem. Does the temp continue to drop after a longer period of time? If not then it might just be a bit of lag time between the thermostat registering that the temp has dropped and heater, heating up the water.

My spa is at 89 and its set for 104 and the pump will not cut on what is the problem


You may be in economy mode. Economy only heats the water during a programmed filter cycle. You want it to be in standard mode which turns on the hot tub once the water is 2 degrees below the desired temperature. There should be a mode or program button on your topside. One some systems you'll have to hit prog/mode button then the temp up button to change the mode. There is also a sleep mode. Never used it not sure what it's for.

Our hot tub temp keeps dropping daily into the 90's temp when it is set at 104 degrees. When we turn the high speed blower on, it seems this is the only way we can get the temp back up to the


calcium will stick to heating element 1st and make it less able to heat water , eventually it will consume the entire surface and insulate the water from touching it and warming it and finally overheat it and cause burnout , high calcium (limestone) is usually a condition that occurs when filling via a well or stream , consider getting a load of pre softened water from a municipal water system , there should be a list of haulers in your area that can provide this service

How can i increase the tempature of my oasis hot tub from 101 which seems to be max to 105 degrees


That is not adjustable. It is set from the factory and the manufacture has to legally limit the temp for medical reasons. The tub I had and the highest temp allowed by law is 104 degrees I believe.

Raise temp above 120


Raising temperature above 120 degrees requires service call.
Or change dip switch settings and risk voiding warranty and causing service call expense.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html#temperature

Earliest versions of Rheem tankless 2006-8 let you set temperature up to 140 degrees F using remote.
However the hotter setting caused error codes because the burner cannot keep up with both high temperature and large volume of hot water rushing through pipe. Especially in winter with cooler incoming water that must be heated more to reach temperature set point.
The burner simply cannot keep up.
So Rheem changed maximum temperature at remote control to tepid 120 degrees, which is not hot enough for folks wanting hot shower, or folks filling whirlpool tub because water in tub cools before tub fills.

My Oaisis II hot tub stays at 103 and now it's dropped down to 68 degrees for the past 3 days? Could there be a problem with my heater element? Or is there a sequence of resetting the temp buttons on top...


Information on the care of your product and troubleshooting is available here:

http://www.oasisleisure.ca/customer_care/SpaCare.html

Did you have a recent power outage? It is necessary to reset the temperature after a power outage.

Check the temperature setting on your hot tub; if it has defaulted do to a power outage reset to the desired temperature. If it is still set at your desired setting and is operating at 68 degrees then there is a problem that is preventing the tub from reaching the set temperature.

Some possible causes and actions are:

Pull filter (see if light comes on) / Replace filter
Knife valves not fully open / Open knife valves

Pressure switch cut of calibration / Adjust pressure switch
Faulty Pressure Switch / Replace pressure switch

Air leak, check pump suction line / Tighten pump union
Heating element corroded / Replace element

Faulty control panel / Replace panel

I just installed my new X400 Dreamaker Spa. I filled it with water (although cold) and it has been warming up for approx. 18 hours and is only at 80 degrees? Is this normal? How long should it take to...


This is normal with the dream maker spa. The dream maker spas are poorly insulated, and only run 120 volts with a very small heater.
When the unit is first filled, the hot tub will not heat full time either. Most new hot tubs will have freeze protection below 50 degrees F. They will recirculate automatically using the friction and the pumps heat to warm the water above 50 degrees, and then the heating unit will kick on. These hot tubs do not heat while the jets are on high either, so once you are in it using the jets on high, the temperature will start to fall.

Now that you are up to 80 degrees, it should heat up fairly quick however.

Washer is a top load set it hot water and starts with hot and then will go cold willnot stay on hot G E Profile ,model wwa8350g


most new washers sense water temp and will try to adj final tub water temp by alternately running cold or hot as needed ..most hot settings are not faucet temp but a predetermined temp so if your hot water is 140 degrees coming in the control will switch the cold on to bring final tub water temp down to preset ..which could be as low as 100 degrees the industry's way of energy conservation
