Have you called your local Watkins dealer for a service call?
I can have you look at a couple of things before you call it in.
Once you turn the system on it will operate without the heater on to purge the system of air. Once that few minutes has gone by the heater will turn on and they system will operate normally.
At what point during this cycle does the system shut down? Does it blow the circuit breaker? Exactly HOW does it shut the pump down?

SOURCE: My spa pump is not turning on after priming

Is this a self contained spa? If it is Your pump probally is running , but if you pulled it out and put it back you created an air lock. You can fix this simpley by opening your drain valve untill you get a steady flow of water out of it. Also check to be shure your shut off valves are fully open before you start.

Hopefully you have not fried the motor. To free a stuck motor: try to reach past the strainer to the impeller and turn it. If you can't do that, remove the electric end cover and find a double flat for a wrench where the shaft goes into the motor. Or maybe you can remove the spring thing from the end of the motor and move the shaft with a pair of vise grips or pliers. Don't damage the place where the spring thing mounts. Don't try to move the motor with the plastic fan thing near the pump, you'll just break it, and then you really have problems.
To keep a motor from sticking, thru off season occasionaly spin the pump, just a few seconds will do, don't need water.

SOURCE: High speed spa pump shuts off

The motor may have a thermal cutoff if the motor draws too much current. Do you have a sufficient large gauge circuit supplying the motore? If not the actual voltage at the motor may drop, causing it to draw more current to make up for the loss of voltage, thereby tripping the motor's protective breaker. I assume the motor will start again after serveral minutes of cooling down.

SOURCE: maxi flow spa booster pump, buzzing...then cuts out

hi the capacitor needs replacing in the pump connection box, this needs to be exactly the same uF value as the one you are taking out.

Good luck!

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.

I have a Sundance 850 spa that when you switch it on at mains power , runs for 5-10 sec then shuts off. Have message - - - - that comes on display panel


Had a similar problem; the heater was blown. You might want to try disconnecting heater wires (with breaker to spa OFF).

Then see if spa pumps work after turning power on.

I got an after market heater that works great; VERY hard to install while spa is full...but I did it anyway. Good luck.

Hi have problem with canadian spa (balboa mrspa1) control panel digital reading when turned on goes to OH,circulation pump will not run


OHS, OH, or SPA TEMP LMT Message There is an "Over Heated Spa" (OHS or OH) Water Condition.

One of the Water Temp Sensors has detected 110°F (43.3°C) Incoming Water Temp and Spa Functions are Disabled. System will Auto Reset when Water Temp is below 108°F (42.2°C). Check for Extended Pump Operation or High Ambient Temp, or contact your Dealer or Service Organization.

Spa Water Cool Down
• In order for the Spa Water Overheat Error Message to Automatically Reset and Clear, the Spa Water Must Cool to below 108°F (42.2°C).
• Check the Topside Panel Display to see if the "OHS", "OH", or "SPA TEMP LMT" Spa Water Overheat Error Message has Cleared. If the Error Message has Not Cleared, the Spa Water is still too Hot to Continue Testing.
• Either Wait for the Spa Water to Cool Below 108°F (42.2°C), or Exit Now and Retest at a Later time.

Do not reset while the motor is running. Reset the CP 3600 when the power is on but with the motor off. OK.
