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.

SOURCE: temperature buttons on hot tub won't change

If you can remove the touch pad without damaging any wiring and such, physically eyeball the electronic board. It may have been incontact with water and burnt a resistor or shorted a pathway. You will see a discoloration in the area that is effected. If you don't see anything obviouse, procure yourself a can of electronic cleaner spray and spray the underside of the board. leaving it loose, and also with tennis shoes on, start it back up and run through your push button cycle. If that doesn't work, it maynot be the control board, it may be one of your acuators that is a faul. Check the easy stuff first, but look hard for a small burnt spot on the board, usually around a resistor. If you foind one, go online and find a color code chart for resistors, thats if you have any resistors on the board. Look at the resistor and write down the colored rings in order. The code of a resistor is how much resistance that resistor is supposed to operate at, or how much resistance it provides so that the unit as a whole can orerate. The color closest to one of the ends of the resistor is the one you write down first. So, you see 2 different colors on either side and ones black on one side and the other is red. Looking at it closley, you see the red ring is 1 cm away and the black ring is 3 cm away from its end. The closest to the end is your begining color code combination. so (all of this is ofcourse Hypathetical but for teaching, it's nessicary), you write down red, then the next color then the next till you reach the end for all intence purposes is black. and with this information, locate a reistor color code chart online or if all fails, ro to Radio shack and purchase one there, a few cents probably, and locate the same, exact!! color scheme of the one you think is bad. Once you locate it, the chart will inform you of how much resistance it is supposed to hold. With this newly found infomation take your Fluke or other electronic metering device, (Volt meter) and check the resistace as you would just like checking the volts on your car batterie with the volt meter. If the chart says it has an impeadance of 25 Ohms and you are getting nothing or its over the printed limit then it bad. Go to your trusty Radio Shack and buy a new 0.15 cent resistor and heat the solder being careful to touch nothing else and remove the old and replace with the new the exact way the old came out. if the red stripe was at the top then put it back the same way, at the top. If you fail to do so, it will not work period. It's designed to allow flow one way. Sorry for the long winded type but I bought a Buick Regal for $100.00 in mint condition because the repair shop told him he needed a new electronic main control board. I spent 5 hrs. checking impeadance and once I found the 2 that read the wrong resistance, I went to radio shack and spent $1.08 then replaced them and she started up like it was anew car. Good luck again, I appologize for the length of this but I hope it helps.

What does the E6 error mean


Hi Cheyenne,

Most of the time an E6 error code refers to a restriction of water in your power pack. When you don't have enough water flow the power pack shuts itself down so it does not over heat.

Possible reasons are dirty filters, air locks, restrictions of water flow,

Solutions are to make sure your water flow is as best as possible, clean your filters often, remove debris from your hot tub, and remove air locks from your power pack.

I bought a FreeFlow hot tub from a friend. The pump just continually runs for 15-20 seconds then shuts off. The temperature also is not rising, I can't seem to get it to work properly no matter what I do....


Thanks for your question. A hot tub is one of those items I personally do not recommend purchasing used, unless from a reputable dealer that can provide some type of warranty or service contract. I only say this because it\'s possible for them to have many many problems indiscernible to the naked eye.As for your particular hot tub, are there any error codes on the topside display? when the tub shuts off does it trip the breaker as well? it sounds as though there may be a problem with the circulation pump or possibly one or both of the heat sensors. it could also be the heater itself is not functioning properly and this is causing the system to shut off. Unfortunately, without more information, or looking at the tub I cannot tell you which of these to troubleshoot first. The only other option I can think of is to call a service technician to inspect the tub,a service call runs about $60-$90 per hour, If you could give me the error code(s) readout from the topside we could establish a starting point, otherwise we\'re just flying blind & I don\'t want you to spend money replacing parts that still work. If you can post again with an error code I\'d be glad to go from there, I\'m sorry I couldn\'t help more...

Hot tub won't get hot enough


Low Heat -
This problem is not usually associated with the heater element but more often a result of water flow issues. Specifically blockages such as dirty filters, partially closed valves etc... But... excessive scale/mineral build up on the element is on uncommon and can result in reduced heating. The fix is easy, use chemical treatments to reduce scale build up.
No Heat
No heat or water is only heating to 60F- 80F? If you are getting a low reading this is because the water is only being heated by the friction caused by running through the plumbing system and pump. Assuming there has not been a dry fire (visual signs of burn/overheat marks/ damage to the heater tube) and your temperature sensor and hi limit are in working order.
A bad element. Like a light bulb, spa heater elements will burn out over time & there are many factors which affect their longevity.

Hot tub won't get hot


Check your filters and make sure they are clean.
Check to see if the heat indicator light is on when the tub is running.
Make sure the gate valves are open on either side of the pump and control box.
Are there any error codes in the little window on the topside?

Hot tub won't start


More info needed.


I have had many hot tubs and had to fix them all.

First check:Plugged in, right?Is the GFI tripped?

Is there power on the HT control panel? little red or green lights, lcd display info, anything? Look up any codes you find.

After that little inspection, a number of things can go wrong. First Unplug the unit, then Open her up and look for any sort of anomaly. Photograph and post what you find.

I have a Westinghouse SB915SJ*00 dishwasher. It runs right through a cycle but does not heat. Any suggestions? Thanks.


Hello

The majority of dishwashers are not connected to hot water from the mains but heat up the water internally using the heating element, located in the tub of the dishwasher, controlled by a thermostat. When the dishwasher has a fault with heating, the program will run but not complete and will show an error code on the display panel. Dishes won't be cleaned properly and the detergent won't dissolve.

If your dishwasher does bring in hot water externally from the mains to check the water is warm and there are no problems with the inlet. If the dishwasher heats internally then it is most likely a faulty heating element or thermostat. A fault like this will usually require a replacement part and a repair, but you can check the heating element with a voltmeter to ensure that it is the cause of the problem before calling out for a service engineer.

Clean light flashes 7 times on Whirlpool DU1148XTPB3 dishwasher and it won't run.


Hello,

The light flashing 7 times indicates error code number 7 and E7 is a error code for the flowmeter. What the flowmeter does is measure the amount of water coming into the dishwasher. The E7 error code can be cleared aby pushing the buttons in this order

HIGH TEMP WASH-HEATED DRY-HIGH TEMP WASH-HEATED DRY -- OFF/CANCEL

The error code will be cleared after pushing the buttons in that order...if after running the E7 error code returns the flowmeter would need to be replaced

The flowmeter is the part on the left side of the tub it is where the water enters the tub
this is what it looks likeoldtech2332_96.jpg
The part number for it is W10195536
