    I cut the power for about a half hour. Tub came back on and reheated water from 100 degrees to set point of 102. No error codes this time. Now has run through several regular 2 hr filtering cycles without error code. Slightly noisy when circulating, sounds like impeller noise if I were to guess. Expect to see code if I turn on jets or air.

This sounds like your motor is going out. When they get noisy and run really hot is when they go out

SOURCE: QCA Opal hot tub display reading OH.

The tub experienced an overheat situation. This may be due to leaving the t stat turned all the way up and not monitoring or the hi-limit sensor is defective. The hi-limit sensor will shut down the heating cicuit if temp gets above 105 D optimally.the fact that the heater light is on is a good sign that things are working at this point.Whether or not a suitable temp(100-103 D) will be arrived at is to be seen. If spa heat kicks off before set temp is reached then replace hi-limit sensor.

SOURCE: hello! the pump on our qca majestic hot tub

If you live in cold weather and are not using it much lower your thermostat. If the freeze control kicks on (at about 38-40degrees) it will constantly try to heat the spa to where you have the heat set when the air temp is low. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: what does FL mean on my hot tub??

FL could be a code for low flow. If you have no circulation this sounds like it. If your pump runs and you have no flow you could have a problem with your pump. Or if you have the tub drained then it could be an air lock, if you open the drain valve till you get water out that should fix that. Also check to be sure the isolation valves are open under the spa. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: hot tub no heater or pump heater light flashing

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

Start with the pump. If it is bound up and not starting nothing else will work. Close off your valves and disconnect the pump unions. Once free, reach in with the pump unplugged and try to turn the impeller by hand. Will it turn? If not, you'll need to free it or get the pump repaired. Once the pump is working and water circulating your heater should start working.

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

SOURCE: this is an old hot tub qca jewel spa that runs all the time

your ozonator may have condensation water in it, try unplugging it and using a hairdryer to dry it out, otherwise you will need a replacement ozonator (i know where to get these at dealer cost if you need one). When replacing ozonator, make sure you request the correct plug type depending on if you have the white plugs or gray plugs that plug into either the side of your spa pack or the circuit board.
Good job on isolating the problem by unplugging each component when a circuit breaker trips. Next, your filter cycle is most likely set on constant filtration, you will need to reset it to 2-4 hours per 12 hour cycle. Don't put it in standby, leave it run in standard mode. Hope this helps,

Your best bet is to contact their fantastic support team and they will help you by phone.
Sounds like you may have an obstruction in the line or a problem with an inline component
such as the old-style wave motor (in spas that are about 10 years old or more). Sounds like
the pump is actually trying to work, so would not blame this problem on the pump until other components on that second pump line such as a possible wave valve are checked.

What does the "FL" code


Fl stands for FLOW error code. This means that either the pump is not pushing enough water, or the pressure switch that senses water flow through the heater is not functioning. This are inexpensive and easy to fix yourself if it is just the pressure switch. Look on or near your heating element for a small disk switch with two wires coming out of it. Remove and replace this part.

Just drained and refilled, plugged back in and hot tub is not heating. Three lights flashing at temp controls. Is there a reset


Most hot tubs have a freeze protection that will lock you out and run the pumps full blast with no heater if the temerature is under 50 degrees F.The circulating pumps create heat until the water temp is above 50 degrees, and then the heater will come on after that.
Hot tubs do this to protect themselves and it is normal operation.

Qca Spa pumps and blower will not come on, water down to 35º f


Ken,

You need to contact a hot tub technician/engineer as you clearly have issues.

'ICE' means that the water temperature is too low and therefore the pumps will be turned on to prevent freezing within the plumbing. Depending upon the spec and settings, the heater maybe disabled during 'ICE' condition.

'ECON' is Economy Mode. If you have a mode button, keep pressing it until you see 'Stan' on the display. This will put the system back into the standard mode.

'FLO' means that there's insufficient flow of water through the heater, or non at all. 1) Check the water level - top up if low. 2) Ensure that all jets are open and flow water - if they don't you may have a pump issue. 3) Remove the filter(s) and see whether or not this clears the fault, if so clean or replace the filters.

'COOL' is displaying because the set temperature is much higher than the current water temperature.


As I mentioned at the start, you really should get someone to take a look at your hot tub. You may have a few issues that need resolving.

Regards,
Ian.
