SOURCE: What is the difference between

The Balboa VS500Z supports one two speed pump, an ozone, and 12v spa light and an optional circulation pump.

Whereas the VS501Z will support a two speed pump, a single speed pump or blower, an ozone, a 12v spa light and an optional circulation pump.

Basically the two are very similar except that the 501Z will support an additional one speed pump or blower.

The best suggestion if you are doing a replacement is to purchase one of the Value Pack Retrofit Kits available through Balboa. You basically get everything you need for the replacement, including the topside, cables, and overlay.

You can find everything you need to know about making the replacement on the following page:

Balboa control board wiring for 2 pumps, no circulation pump though


I believe you are barking up the wrong tree.
If I understand you correctly, the pumps are backwards!!!
Pump #1 is always a 2 speed pump.
Pump #2 is usually just a 1 speed pump.
When the filtration cycle comes on, "Low" speed is supposed to be the speed that does the heating.
But when your pump is on high speed, the movement of water is creating friction and that will heat the water and provide you all of the error codes you have been experiencing.
A 2 speed pump is normally a "Circulation" pump.
as far as dip switch settings, there is a key on the label on the inside of the load box cover. It will be in a little table.

I have a Balboa VS500Z . The circuit board burned up where the heater buses are located . I replaced the board and the heater . Know when I start the Spa it primes at low speed for about a minute . Then...


Hi,

DR code - Inadequate water detected in heater.
HL code - Hi Limit, Spa over heat. In your case the Hi Limit is preventing the element from burning out.

This means there is no water or not enough water flowing through the heater.
Common causes:
Hi Limit sensor failure.
Blocked suction, skimmer.
Are the gate valves all the way open/up?
Pump is not functioning correctly, impeller/wet end failure.
These are the most common, but there are also other causes.

I hope that helps

I need a users manual for the BalcoaValue 3 stystem, as I bought a house with a Great Lakesspa and I have no clue as to how to use the control. I need, specifically, to know how to adjust the temperature...


First and foremost, there really is no such thing as a Value 3 System by Balboa. Balboa has a large line of systems with various names such as Value Pack Retrofit kits, VS, ES, GS, and our new LM8000 systems. If you can locate your product part number on your system, you can visit the Balboa Direct website manual downloaded section at: BALBOA DIRECT MANUALS and download the latest manual for your product.

Hope that helps.

Upper control panel flickers and will not allow me to control temo


how old is spa?
if new then circuit board maybe set on a mode setting that is used when being tested in the factory, locate dipswitch block on circuit board and move dip switch for MODE, should have a layout of dip switches on reverse of lid to control box
if older then you may need a new control panel (top side)

Door chime code for GE model 1601S &1602S


Hi there. I think I have the same GE chime. It has a series of 4 dip switches on the bell (base) and also in the switch unit. Just make them the same. On mine for example, switch # 1,2 & 4 are up (on) and #3 is down (off). Any combination of 16 codes should work as long as both units are the same. Just as an aside, I had a problem with mine working intermittently, then mostly not at all. It was the actual pushbutton switch inside the button unit. Luckily, I replaced the micro-switch and it's working again. Also during cold wet weather, the 12v battery gets depleted faster than normal probably due to moisture inside the switch unit. I taped a piece of plastic from a sandwich bag over the switch unit to help keep water out.
I hope this helps.....
