Question about Balboa Instruments Duplex Digital Panel 2 Pump

Open Question

I have a Balboa control unti for my spa. (Model HPL200). I drained it in the Spring and then re-filled it in October for use over the winter. After I filled it and started up the pumps, the fuse(s) blew in the main unit. I replaced the fuses and it worked fine for a couple of weeks but now the fuses in the control box blew again. There is obviously something wrong that is causing the fuses to blow. The unit is 8 years old and was running perfectly prior to the pring when I drained it.

SOURCE: Hello

If you suspect a bad breaker, that is an easy troubleshooting idea. In some cases you can swap the wire to a different breaker, of the same value, in the panel. This temporary swap would tell you if the fault is in the breaker or the circuit. If you do not have another breaker of the same value , then you would have to buy one for this self check.
The next step would be to check the wiring from the breaker to the device. Disconnect the device and try to reset the breaker. This will tell you if the fault is in the feed wires or the device or in the device itself.

The topside controls aren't fused so the fuses wont be the cause.

It can only be either the PCB, the topside controls, or a bad connection at fault. Check that they are plugged in correctly, make sure that the PCB is configured correctly for your topside controls.

It's rare for both the main and auxilary topside controls to fail. You can try plugging in another main topside control without fully installing it... at least you can then return it (ask whether or not return are accepted, I don't personally accept any returns if parts are specially ordered) if it doesn't cure the problem.

SOURCE: hi have problem with canadian spa

OHS, OH, or SPA TEMP LMT Message There is an "Over Heated Spa" (OHS or OH) Water Condition.

One of the Water Temp Sensors has detected 110°F (43.3°C) Incoming Water Temp and Spa Functions are Disabled. System will Auto Reset when Water Temp is below 108°F (42.2°C). Check for Extended Pump Operation or High Ambient Temp, or contact your Dealer or Service Organization.

Spa Water Cool Down
• In order for the Spa Water Overheat Error Message to Automatically Reset and Clear, the Spa Water Must Cool to below 108°F (42.2°C).
• Check the Topside Panel Display to see if the "OHS", "OH", or "SPA TEMP LMT" Spa Water Overheat Error Message has Cleared. If the Error Message has Not Cleared, the Spa Water is still too Hot to Continue Testing.
• Either Wait for the Spa Water to Cool Below 108°F (42.2°C), or Exit Now and Retest at a Later time.

This is most likely a heater issue. The technician needs todisconnect both heater leads to see if the breaker will hold. This will help you determine where theelectrical problem is occurring and why it is tripping.

Where do I find the model number of the Balboa Duplex and where is the heater located?


Hi, on Balboa control systems there will be a metal heater tube either at the bottom or the back of the control box, this tube will obviously join your spas pipework at either end. The part number will be located in the middle of the tube, normally on a silver or white sticker, if you send me a picture of your control box or the heater tube i can direct you to the exact replacement. contact me on our website contact page, www.hottubpartsuperstore.co.uk

kind regards,

Light keeps flashing in spa


Sounds like control panel failure or the keypad is locked/stuck.

Try hold temperature UP & DOWN together for 6 seconds.
or if you have a Balboa 7 button controls, both buttons to the left of the display screen & down temperature.

As your lights are flashing the button might be stuck in the down position.

A lot of times you can get an air lock as the spa fills. All you need to do to fix this is open the drain valve for a few seconds till it runs just water and no air. Or start the pump wile the drain is open. This should fix your problem. Good luck.

I just bought a used balboa hot tub and have no expertise. Does the pump kick in automatically even when you turn it off it will turn back on instantly? Is that normal? If it is not normal what could be...


This does not sound normal, but in order to better diagnose this I need to know exactly what model of controls your spa has. This is easily found on a label on top of the control box in the spa cabinet. If the label is missing, then remove the control box cover and look at the inside of the cover for the schematic, should be a model number on it.

Hello, how I remove the water from my whirlpool jacuzzi bath Balboa Z112 spa so I can clean it


hook up a garden hose to a faucet. Put the other end in your spa. Then turn on the faucetuntil water comes out the spa end of hose. Make sure the end in the spa is weighted down so it doesn't come out. Then remove the hose from the faucet and keeping it lower than the spa lay the hose where it can drain with causing problems. The water will flow on its own draining the spa. You may want to clean it while its draing so the dirty water will be diluted and drain at thhe same time. Make sure the water is not drained out around any electrical AND!!! NO DIVING!!!! If you lose the prime, just fill the hose again with the faucet. Good luck
