The FL2 code indicates that the heater has tried and failed to ignite three times. This is not uncommon after it has sat for a while unused. Check that the gas shut off valve is open and the valve inside the heater is in the on position. While it is trying to fire check to see if the hot surface igniter glows, then you should hear an audible "clunk" that is the pilot valve opening. If the pilot valve is opening but the HSI is not glowing then the HSI will need to be replaced. This is not uncommon.

To clear the FL2 service code, turn off the heater by using the SELECT key to turn the heater to the 'OFF' position and then turn it back to either 'POOL' or 'SPA'. The heater will now go back to the normal operating mode. If there is a call for heat the heater will attempt ignition again. If the ignition fails
again, contact a qualified technician to check the heater.

Reset code 4

According to pages 34-38 of the installation and operations manual, FL4 is one of the codes that does not automatically reset itself after the fault is repaired. To reset the controller after an FL4 (or 6 or 7), press the "Select" button until the heater is off, wait a minute or two, and then press "Select" to put the heater into "Pool" or "Spa" mode. The heater should then go through the ignition sequence and function normally. NOTE: The manual also says that an FL4 code should be fixed by a professional.

FL code on a Great lakes spa I have turned of power twice code still there also the the water is warm

'Fl' 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.
