The water is not getting over 90 degrees and they heater is running all the time to try to get it to 101. I just changed the water and the front panel is not shut. Can that cause the heat loss or is there a problem with the heating coil?

This usually relates to one thing: a dirty filter. Here's why: pump tries to such enough water through the filter. It can't because it's dirty so the water pressure is too low to allow the heater to come on. So, it keeps running trying to heat. Pull out your filter and leave out for a day/ your temp should go up..if it does not then you will need to look at the pressure switch isn't closing. The switch can be adjusted for a very temporary fix. The permanent fix is replacement. Hope this helps Happy New Years Tim

Is the equipment to heat and filter the hot tub separate from the pool equipment or do both bodies of water share a common heater and filter pump? In most cases they share a pump and heater with valves that direct the flow of water depending on how the pool owner wants to use the pools. The first thing you need to determine then is if the equipment is working properly. Is there flow of water to and from the spa? If so, is the heater burner kicking on? If it is running, is it running properly with sufficient gas pressure, 3-4" tall bright blue flames and stays on continuously during the heating cycle for the spa? What is 'very quickly' for the time to heat the water? In other words, if everything appears to be operating normally but the water is not warming fast enough or at all how much time is elapsing before deciding the heater is not working? How old is this equipment and how much experience do you have with this pool tech or the company they are from?
How big is your bathtub? Is your water heater set on the hottest setting? What is the temperature of the hot water at the tap?
Keep in mind that hot water can cause severe burns. Children and those with diminished mental capacity can be seriously harmed by hot water.
The "40 Gallon" rating on the water heater is usually the amount of hot water the unit can produce in one hour. So the tank, and the amount of immediately available hot water, might be smaller than 40 gallons.
My bathtub is 2 feet wide by 1 foot deep and 4 feet long. This is 8
cubic feet or almost 60 gallons. So a 40 gallons of water at 120 degrees, mixed
with 20 gallons of cold water (60 degrees), fills the tub with 100 degree
water. My January cold water is 42 degrees, so it will take 40 gallons at 129 degrees to fill the tub. If the tub is cold to start it will take even hotter water.
So the water heater might be just fine.
Possible solutions: 1. turn the temperature up on your water heater- or the temperature control could be malfunctioning and not getting the water hot enough. 2. insulate your hot water pipes so that the water loses less heat on the way to the tub. 3. bigger water heater. 4. smaller bathtub, or less full bathtub.
Depending on how you heat the hot water, whether gas or electric, is a missing detail in your problem, but if it is electric then your problem is the size, being only 40 gal, and needing probably about that to fill the tub, will always lead to your current position.
If the hot water heater is gas, the chances of it keeping up are slightly better, but again things like the temperature of the water leaving the tank, any mixing valves, etc. will effect the water temp at your tub. Before raising any temps, make sure you follow local code, as not to scald yourself or others.
