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.

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.

My Apollo hot tub stopped heating and the first set of jets are not working and both seemed to have gone out at the same time. The second set of jets and the air are fine. Does anyone have any ideas of...


You're pump #1 has failed. Your spa has 2 water pumps and an air pump. Number 1 pump pushes water through the heater. Pump 2 simply supplies the second set of jets with water. The air pump simply pushes air through the air jets.
If pump one fails you will have no heat and the first set of jets will not turn on. Pump 1 is the most prone to failure because it kicks on any time the spa needs to filter or heat. This happens automatically every day so pump 1 works much harder than pump 2. Your heater has a safety mechanism that makes sure that water is flowing through the heater when it kicks on. If there is a problem with pump 1 your heater will not kick on. There are stickers on your #1 pump. Get the model number off of the sticker and order a replacement pump from a web site like www.spapartsdepot.com. If you give them the model number of the pump they can send you a replacement. I'm 100% sure that's the problem. I'm not affiliated in any way with the web site I mentioned but I'm pretty sure they will have the pump you need. Good luck!

Hydro-Quip pack in my Hydro-Spa hot tub no heat.


Hi,
3 Flashing dots (display) - Water flow problem check for closed valves, dirty filters, water level, pump/wet end operation/defective pressure switch.
If your spa has been off for a while its likely something is blocking the lines.
Flashing dots & Lit light on display - Hi-limit trip, reset power to clear.

My Apollo Rainier hot tub's heater doesn't seem to work - I get a FH message on the display. Please help!!!


HL generally stands for high limit fault which means a sensor is opening the heater circuit due to too high a heat reading. Common causes for such a fault start with poor water flow due to dirty filters which in turn allow the element to overheat. If necessary, replace the filter elements to restore proper flow.If flow issues are not the problem, try looking at the heater itself however you should probably call out a professional at this point as most remaining issues to check are within the controls and the heater and if you are not familiar with working on these components you should avoid trying to repair this yourself.

I have a 700 litre outside spa pool with a 1 kwt heater.I only turned it on today but the suitable tempiture of 37 celcius (about 100 oF )cannot be obtained.It has been on for 12 hours today.


A 1 Kilowat heater is very small and 1/6th the size that you would use on a 300 gallon spa. Theres a good chance one or more of 3 things are happening.
-Heater is undersized
-Not enough water flow through the heating element
-Calcium or salt build-up on the heating element.

Replace the element, and do ot with a 2-3KW heater at least if your spa pak will allow for it.

The heat of the water is only going to 92 degrees, but it is set at 102. There are three blinking lights under the temp readout. I don't know how to procede.


Is the heater shutting off at 92. If so you have a thermostat problem. If not, then the heater is incapable of reaching the desired temp. The most likely culprit is the bypass valve. See your owners manual on the location of this valve and the part number you need to get a new one.

Dream Maker Hot tub - Display is blank - no #'s - flashes 4 times


Hard to say without being there. Two things to check though. First be sure the new board is the correct one. Many times parts will change and replacements will have special instructions for retrofitting.
The other thing to check is be very sure the plug on the new board lines up with the receptor. On a multi pin plug if the pins don't line up you can get just the problem you describe. I hope this helps, sorry it can't be more.

Power light blinks after blower turns on. Water is barely coming out luke warm after 30m of running. No other status lights lit.


The water is mixed with cool water as it leaves the heater and will only be eight to ten degres hotter than when it goes into the heater so as to avoide scalding. You need to ck the total heat rise of the water after about an hour in a spa and after about three or four hours in a pool.
