When you say broken line, do you maybe mean " - - - - " like 4 dashes?
That is called a Watchdog, where the spa internal smart circuitry has sensed a potential damaging problem. Many things could be causing this. If you turn power off and upon re-energizing power, push jets button. Does it come on? This needs to happen immediately after powering up. Using a 2nd person is a great asset in this.

Our 880 Marin hot tub is constantly running the jets on 1/2 of the tub as if the circulation pump is running. The icon on the control panel does not show the jets are on. When we push the button to turn...

sounds to me with a power surge you could have a relay on the circuit board not working properly.
You will most likely need to change the circuit board to correct the problem.

I have a 2005 Sundance 850 spa. Pump 1 continues to cycle on for about a minute and then shuts off and then cycles on for a minute. I can not turn it off from the control panel. Everything else works fine.

the motor running for a short period of time and turning off then back on then off is either going to be a bad winding in the motor or a bad relay on your circuit board.
Do you have any error codes on display in the topside panel?

Display shows SF on model H150ED2

SF is the code for Temperature sensor input failure. check wiring that goes to temperature sensor for brakes or cuts, sensor is located on right lower side of heater where water lines go in. you have to remove the 6 screws to take the side panels off above and below the water lines. sensor is visible then.follow wires back to control board and make sure they are securely pluggin in to board and all broken wires fixed or replaced. If no broken wires or loose connections, Replace temperature sensor.

My spa is showing - - - and flashing the red heater light. what dose this mean and how can i fix it?

depending on what type of spa you have, the three dashes usually mean that the control system is in "watchdog" mode and is normally caused by one or more faults in the series of sensors. You need to test or have someone test the high limit, water temperature sensor, and the flow sensor/switch. One of the sensors or possibly more than one is most likely bad. Check to make sure mice have not got under and chewed the wiring.
Hope this helps. There are so many spas on the market, without knowing which spa you have, it's difficult to offer accurate solutions. Sounds like you have a sundance spa.
