I have a sundance spa 880 that does not start. The control panel shows only a broken line and nothing else.

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.

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.

This is the service manual for you machine. The wiring diagrams on pages 56 and 57 shows that the machine does nothing unless the bin control is in the "Closed position. It is a temperature controled switch. If it is broken, not works. Check that out first.

When pushing start button on spa pump does not kick in at all, tested power point and working ok ..What could be the problem and solution. Brian C

If you know that power is getting to the computer board then it is either a bad top-side control panel, or a bad relay on the computer board. If this is an older model, replacing the relay may be possibly. If this is a newer board, they build them right into board so a new board is neccessary.

Note: Make sure to check all fuses on the main board before coming to the above conclusion. If you know how to do a continuity test with a multimeter, do this will ALL fuses before replacing anything.
Iyou are not proficient with a multimeter, visually inspect the fuses for breaks in the filiment (if the is a high voltage slow blow fuse that is solid white, start by replacing this fuse. It should be available at any decent hardware store.)
