SOURCE: Dream Maker spa - does my dream maker spa 4 person

Depending upon the age, the Dream Maker has a digital thermostat which is easy to change but to be honest I don't think that is the cause of your problem.

Check the keypad connection on the PCB (circuit board).

t could be either the keypad or PCB at fault and withou trying one or the other you'll not be able to determine the problem. My advise would be for you to contact your local parts supplier and ask them whether or not they can supply you a keypad to try with the option to send it back for a refund if it doesn't cure the problem.

A keypad can be trial fitted to the PCB, just unplug the old one, plug the new one in and turn on the power. There's no need to install the keypad to the spa, therefore you wont damage it in anyway.

If the keypad doesn't cure the problem, change the PCB.

Regards,
Ian.

Older leisure bay tub. only a few buttons on topside panel work as they should. temp control buttons switch from economy to standard,cant raise or lower temp. Topside panel or control board?


Top side control. 90% sure by your description of problem. Buy the topside, plug it in and try it before you do full install. If it doesn't work you can return it. Most places won't take back a PC Board.

How to replace air controller topside


If you need to replace the control panel altogether, there are a few things you should know beforehand. Before you purchase a new panel, make sure it's compatible with your existing spa control pack. There is often a part number on the existing top side panel when you pull it out of the housing. A sticker is typically on the side indicating a part number from the manufacturer. Otherwise, get the number for your spa control pack and call the manufacturer to find out which top side panel will work for you.

Replacing a topside control panel is a fairly simple process. First, turn off the power to the unit. Remove the spa access panel and take the cover off of the control box and unplug the wire that goes form the topside panel to the circuit board. Gently remove the topside control panel. Remove the plastic from the self-stick backing of the topside controller. Place the topside controller in the place of the previous one. Plug in the topside wire to the circuit board and power back up the spa to test the function of the new unit.

Viking Destiny River 2013 hot tub led tub lights not working. Can hear relay engage when pressing lights on control panel. All not working.


Not exactly sure of your question?
If you pressed 'Light' button on topside control, do any lights come on, some lights, or No lights? Does the light 'Icon' come on, on the topside?
if there is an indicator on the topside that comes on when you press the appropriate button, then the communication between the topside and circuit board have been completed, and that action should work, in your case, the light should come on. If no indicator, that means circuit board received no communication to power the light (s). So... you hear a click? So do you also an indicator that lights should be on, if so - no lights are working, wire to light fixture is either unplugged, or light or lights are burned out, or bad wire connection.
if no indicator on topside control panel = Bad/dead light 'Button', which means bad panel - since you can't repair a button on a topside control panel.

I have a vita duet spa. It has a pb error and the jets or the lights will not turn on. Any suggestions?


Vita Spa Error code (PB) is a power board communication error. Turn off the power and then check the connection between the topside control and control box. check for loose or unplugged wires, unplug the topside control (after turning off the power) and check for signs of shorts or charring on the wiring ribbon/connectors. If you cannot find the source of the problem you will need to contact your dealer or repair technician. I hope this helps =)

Leisure Bay spa will not heat past 86 degrees. Element and sensors are new. Spa has excellent flow and correct voltage at terminals.


if the spa does not heat up to 104 degrees then the temp sensor is what you are going to need.
Are there error codes showing on the screen of the topside?
You will need to know the model number of the control box or the model number of the heater tube in order to get the proper sensor.

Dreammaker x-400 clicking sound and pump surge


This might be a problem with the topside control. When the spa is clicking, try unplugging the topside control and see whether or not the problem stops. If the jet button is stuck on the topside, the pump will turn on-off-on-off-on-off until the topside is unplugged.

If unplugging the topside worked, replace it.

I just bought an old spa from someone and the control panel is not turning on. It was rebuilt a while back and according to the original owner it was working, and when I drained it it appeared it was being...


If you are SURE there is correct power up to the spa pack you need to check to see that the topside control is plugged into the board.
if it is plugged in, it is either the 24volt transformer supplying the topside control, or the topside control is failed.
Did you hook up the hot tub?
Most common cause of topside complete failure is connecting to an improper power supply. This will immediately fry the transformer, and also maybe the topside control. It you are luck there would be a small 2 amp fuse next to the transformer.
If the whole board is without power, but you know power is going into it, it could be the main 50 amp fuse, which is usually white and about 1.25" long

Redout on jacuzzi spa model j340 has --- code.has been working


The condition you see on the topside control is known as "watchdog" Which usually means that the spa thinks it's "overheating"
Turn off the power to the spa for a couple of minutes, then restart, Watch the topside control if the temp. starts to climb & read a lot hotter than the actual water temp. Then it goes into watchdog, most likely you have a bad temp sensor. In some cases just resetting the spa will clear the watchdog & everything works fine. (Voltage fluctuations, "spikes" can freak out the electronics & the tub goes into watchdog to protect itself) If the spa immediately goes into watchdog when you reset it, you might have a bad board. (Let's pray it's not) 90% of the time it's a bad temp. sensor.
