SOURCE: No Heat from Spa

Tcarrigan,

Heater contactors "buzzing": Do you mean normal buzzing or extra loud buzzing? Loud buzzing or chattering can be caused by low voltage to a contactor. If normal sounds, then probably the relays on the contactors is working, but the contacts may be stuck, or burned enough so as not to make contact. First, get a voltmeter and check for 240 volts AC at the heater contactor terminals. If the voltage is low, most likely you need to check the contactors further. Check for dirty contacts, clean if needed. If the contacts are not moving when energized, then you will probably need to replace one or both of the contactors.

The pressure switch is on the inlet/outlet manifold. It has purple wires running to it. Try taking a wire and unplugging the pressure switch and jumping the 2 wires together.

You need to check your temp sensor and your high limit. Both are tubes that slide into the plumbing on or near your heater. If this is a tube heater then they are probally at on each end of the heater and will have small wires coming from them that go back to the control board. Farely common problem and easy enough to fix with replaceing them both. A number of models wire them together so they come as one part. Good luck.

Hi there,
please try to double check the water level. Alot of these spas are very sensitive to the water level. One other thing you can check is the terminal board connections. Some times these burn out. Let me know if any of these helps.
Thanks!

Hydropool hot tub


Check your filter. It may be clogged. This will restrict flow and prevent the pressure/flow switch from actuating. The heater will think that water is not flowing and not allow the burner to produce heat.

Circulation pump is running but FLO is displayed on panel and heat light goes out.


FLO is displayed because something has caused a reduction in water pressure through the heater. The spa control will turn the heater off when FLO is displayed to prevent a burn out.
I suggest checking the filter cartridge, the suction fittings & any valve which could be partially closed & restricting flow.
Try run the spa with out the filter cartridge if this clears the error then it is the cartridge.
If none of these work it is possible the your flow switch and/or pump is beginning to fail.
Good luck!

The FLO is lit up on my Pro-form restoration 5.1. how do i fix it?


The error code FLO indicates that there is NOT enough water flow through the system to operate the spa and make the heater turn on.
Check your spa filter by removing it. If the heat indicator comes on then you can be assured your filter is too dirty.
If the heat indicator light does NOT come on after removing the filter then you need to check the PRESSURE SWITCH by by-passing the switch and see if the heat indicator light comes on. If it comes on after jumping the two wires together that go to the pressure switch then you know you have a bad pressure switch.
Also, check the gate valves on either side of the pump to make sure they are completely up and you have good water flow.

Filled artic spa 36 hours ago. not heating properly. what should I check?


If you don't have any error codes, FLO, FLC, then there is a chance your heater has burnt out. You would need an Ohm meter to measure if you have continuity thru the heater element. You should read 11 to 12 ohms. If you have either FLO or FLC on the display this indicates a problem with the pressure switch. The pressure switch is threaded into the side of the heater, the stainless steel tube attached to the #1 or main pump. Its a round module with two wires attached to it. There is an adjusting post in the center of the module. For an FLO code turn the post half a turn CCW. For an FLC code turn it half a turn CW. If this does not solve the problem replace the pressure switch.

I have a artic spa 2003 ,and is flashes a flo coded ,what could i do to fix this problem,im so fustraded with this thing.pumps work ,jets come on but no heat .


A "FLO (w)" indicator means that there is insufficient water flow to trip the pressure switch and allow the heater to come on. Trouble Shooting: Remove the filters and run the spa. If the indicator goes away the filters are clogged, bad. Locate the pressure switch normally threaded into the heater tube. There should be two wires attached. Remove the wires and connect them together to complete the circuit. If the indicator goes away the pressure switch is bad or requires adjustment. Replace / adjust the switch and reconnect the wires. Do not run the spa permanently without it.

LF READING ON PANEL


LF means "Low Flow". Remove the filters to see if the code goes away. If not, the pressure switch may be bad.

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.
