You may have a Spa Builders control system which was commonly used by Arctic Spas throughout their range.

Turn the hot tub off at the mains to reset it. If 'HL' returns again on the display you need to feel the heater tube. If the heater tube is not hot either, you have most likely got a faulty hi limit temperature probe (attaches to the heater), or a faulty PCB.

It might also be wothwhile checking the hi-limit probe connection on the PCB, these have been known to corrode and cause errors before.

The temperature probe is the cheapest item so try replacing this first.

Kind Regards,

Raypack 2100 pool heater runs for a couple of minutes then loud banging noise. heater shuts off and error code HL appears


That HL is your high limit shutting the heater down. The banging is the sound of water boiling in the heat exchanger because it is moving too slow. This is almost always the result of the bypass or governor (thermostat) not working properly, so too much water is bypassing the heater. It's not too hard of a fix.

Hot tub won't heat over 86


Your problem is likely the heater element has failed.
The water is only reaching, mid 80's due to friction and heat from the pump. This is an intermediate problem, we recommend calling an spa technician. If you want to read: how to do to test a spa heater element.

What does HL on display panel mean


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


HL stands for high limit...it means one of the high limit switches is open, preventing the heater from working. Either the limit has failed and replacing it will correct the issue or there is a situation with the heater or flow rates causing it to truly overheat...fixing the issue will return the heater to operation.

The HL indicator light comes on and I can not get it to reset. I shut spa off and the HL light was on again when I checked an hour later. I live in Wisconsin and don't want my tub to freeze. Tub was used...


It sounds like a flow issue. When the HL comes on, its sensing a higher temp than it is supposed to. This is usually caused by bad flow in the circulation pump.

The most likely cause of the bad flow in residential spas, is a bad filter element. Even if a filter looks clean, they do get clogged with particles we cant see. To test this, make sure the spa is free of debris, and remove the filter element. Run spa for a while and see if the code comes back. If it doesnt, get a new filter.

Otherwise the pump could either be failing, or clogged. Check this next.

Finally if these dont work, check the temp sensor (thermistor) .

I have my hot tub plugged in for 3 days and the water is still cold, how long does it usually take to heat up a 8 man arctic spa?


If the cover and doors are on and everything is working then it should take no longer than about 8 hours.
It could be something simple like the heater is unplugged, or more complex like an airlock or faulty pump motor.
If you can't get service from your local Arctic Spas dealer, the head office service department can be reached through their worldwide corporate website, www.arcticspas.com

I have a 2003 Arctic spa and have changed the heater. I have a HL sensor error on the panel but the tub is cold?


HL usually means that the heater is working and there is no water passing through it, do you get a flo error message before the HL,I had the same problem, mine was the flo switch

Our artic spa hot-tub is showing HL in the panel and is not heating up as it should. Everything else seems fine. Why?


HL is normally a "high limit" fault. If your filter is clean and you have sufficient flow, you may have a faulty high limit sensor. It should be mounted on the heater itself. The high limit sensor shuts the heater off if it senses excessively hot water. Check to see that you have sufficient flow, clean the filter, and make sure the filter pump is running. If everything else is running properly, you may have to replace the high limit sensor.

Heater will only heat spa water to luke warm.


sounds like it may be the thermostat on the heater. You are correct to check the filter first. if it is clean then it is probably the thermostat
