I had the same problem last year, I talked to a spa guy and he stated that the temp sensor was probably covered in bio crud. He also stated that the tub should be cleaned with a hot tub flush. After doing that I have not had a problem with the temp settings.

SOURCE: E04 message on MiniMax NT 400 DV..Help!!

Your EO4 message tells you you have a fan problem. So ether your fan is diying wich you would hear or you have a bad presure sensor in your exaust. A new fan is a little pricey but the sensor is reasonable for heater parts. I can't be sure but I believe it ether screws onto or into your exaust and it just plugs on to your control board. If your sensor is going bad their is a reason and this should be addressed. It should be in your by-pass or your gas pressure. But as far as a new heater, not untill you have water coming from the cabnit. It is sometimes easer to sell new than keep up with new, Good luck let me know how you do.

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

The part you will need is called a thermistor; it is the part that reads water temp and converts it to a digital signal for the board to display. The part number should be 42001-0053S. If you need additional details or troubleshooting tips, try the owner’s manual, here. You should be sure that there is no potential problems with water flow prior to just replacing the part. In extreme cases you could have poor water flow and the water in the heater is way too hot (105) yet the pool is much cooler. Generally you will have other indications this is the problem, such as a lot of banging and popping, like making microwave e popcorn. If that’s not the case, the thermistor is the way to go

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: I have a Jandy Lite

This sounds very much like spider webs in the gas orfaces. If you shut the power off and remove the wires to the gas valve then shut the gas down and remove the fed pipe from the gas valve you should be able to pull the burner tray out of the heater. Now if you remove the burners you should be able to remove the brass orfaces connected to the main gas feed pipe. If you use an air hose or a can of compressed air you can blow this out now. Now take the orfaces you removed and clean them with a tooth pick or a small piece of wire. The webs will look like small cotton balls or lint. They don't stop the gas they just slow it or disperse it and keep it from firing clean and evenly.
At this point you can reassemble the tray and install. This should fix your problem.

Spa was below temp, now it heats and won't shut off.


Is your spa overheating, heating up past 104 degrees?
If so, you have a contactor (or relay) stuck shut and the spa should go into OH at 108 degrees.
d
If your hot tub is only heating to 104 or what ever temp you have it set at and the motor runs 24 hours a day there are a couple of things you'll want to check.
First, make sure that you do not have the pump set to run 24 hours a day.
Second, you'll want to see if the pump icon is lit up on the control panel. You will want to check to see if the icon is on while the spa is supposed to be resting. During filter cycles the icon will be lit. If you are not in a filter cycle and the pump is on while the icon light is off, you have a stuck contactor (relay). The relays can be found online for less then a couple of dollars.
If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

How to I increase the temperature to 101 on the drreammaker spa fantasy model?


This may be a little late as you may have already found the answer. But most "Fantasy" spas have "Balboa" control system. They are either a heat control knob, or Up/Down arrows on the spa side control system.
If you have the know & it is all the way turned to max position, and still not hot enough, then you may well have a faulty "Temperature Sensor". Get a replacement from your local DreamMaker dealership. Easy to replace.

Just filled my dream maker brand new has been filled for a couple of hours but all the temp says is ice do you know what that means


This spa is heated by waste heat from the pump. The manual says it can take up to 20 hours to get to 100F. I assume that is starting from 60F. Keep the cover on and let it run at least a day and you should have 100F+ water temperature.

The power keeps turning off after 10 to 15 min ?


You may have a bad motor. Put a drop of water on the motor just after it shuts down. If it sizzles,you have a bad motor.

My hot tub had a OH where the temp usually is, then went blank and i wasnt able to reset it. i just replaced the cord and resiliconed around the temp readout


This is probally your temp sensor. Where it is on your system is hard to say. If you have a book on the system it will be in there.
