Heating elements are located in the stainless steel tube attached to the control box. Older models from the early 1990's and 1980's were sometimes housed in a plastic case with a square 5 x 5 plate on the one end.

Power tripping

the heating element is drawing a load when it shouldnt be. Make sure when u replaced the heat element that it isnt touching the metal tubing inside. Could possibly be a fault in the heating relay inside the circuit board

How long should a 2007 eclipse spa take to heat up??

Usually spas heat approx 5 degrees an hour. If its been a day or so and your water isn't up to heat, you probably need a new heating element in your spa. Check the voltage at your heating element, and on your topside there is usually a heat indicator light that should be lit. If it has correct voltage at heater and the indicator light is lit, heater burned up. If you have incorrect voltage at heater check fuses for a possible blown fuse and see which pump it goes to, that could be your problem.

Reflections Spa will not heat

Take a Multimeter and measure the voltage at the heater element. If it is getting voltage either 120v or 240v depending on the voltage to the spa, you've got a bad heating element

Is your spa still not heating?
If the problem persists it indicates that your heater element is bad.

If you do not keep close watch on your water chemistry, depending on your location , you could have a large calcium build-up or salt build up on your electric heating element. Also, these models are meant for spas, and depending on the weather in your location, the heater might have trouble keeping up.

KW9B model, power to unit but no heat when timer

Heaters are pretty simple: when timer is on, voltage is applied to the heater elements until timer turns off. To troubleshoot your problem, use a multimeter or circuit tester to check the terminal connections on the heating elements themselves. With the timer ON, you should be able to read voltage (120 or 240, depending on your heater) at those connections. If you don't check the continuity of the wiring from your timer to your heater. Continuity w/out voltage at the element indicates a faulty timer, no continuity means bad wiring. If you do read voltage at the element but it isn't heating, your element is burnt out -- time to replace it. If it's a newly assembled setup or seems odd to be burnt out for some other reason, double check that you're using the correct voltage for that particular heater... 120vac won't run a heater rated at 240vac.
