First, locate the pressure switch and disconnect the wires that attach to it (they should just pull off). Now use another wire to connect those two wires, thus bypassing the pressure switch. If the problem continues, it is not the switch. If it works while in bypass, it is probably the switch, which just unscrews.
Otherwise check to make sure that your water level is right and there are no obstructions in the filter or the suction line.

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!

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.

SOURCE: How do I stop the spa from starting up and

It's not possible to stop the spa from starting up after a power loss. Most spas go through a self test then try to reach the last set temperature. Pump 1 usually runs the filter/heater, once it's activated it should run for 20min or until you turn it off. The high speed on pump 1 should always work. One problem with the pump may be that it's heating up and the internal high limit won't let it turn on. When you shut the pump off, the motor gets even hotter for a period of time since the fan is not turning, it may be getting hot enough to trip the internal high limit so that it won't turn on until the motor cools down. It won't turn on even if the topside control indicated that it should be on.

Possible bad motor. You would need to test voltage at the motor connections with a multi meter. If the voltage is correct, then the motor or start capacitor is bad. If the proper voltage is not correct, then you would need to look upline in the electrical system to find the problem

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.

2001 arctic spa is showing error code FLO


FLO is for not enough water flow
This is a filter issue or pump issue. Remove filters and see if it goes away. If it does get some new filters here: http://www.hottubworks.com/

If it does not go away call us and we will walk you through trouble shooting. Most likely a circ pump if not filters.

Flo code is on and pump won't start up


Flo = Improper flow or pressure switch malfunction or Flow switch malfunction (system specific).

Before you purchase a new pressure switch:
- Clean or replace your filter cartridge (if its older than 1 yr).
- Check that all slice/gate valves are up/open.
- Check water lines for blockages incl. suction cover & ensure sufficient water level in spa.

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.
