Depending upon the age, the Dream Maker has a digital thermostat which is easy to change but to be honest I don't think that is the cause of your problem.

Check the keypad connection on the PCB (circuit board).

t could be either the keypad or PCB at fault and withou trying one or the other you'll not be able to determine the problem. My advise would be for you to contact your local parts supplier and ask them whether or not they can supply you a keypad to try with the option to send it back for a refund if it doesn't cure the problem.

A keypad can be trial fitted to the PCB, just unplug the old one, plug the new one in and turn on the power. There's no need to install the keypad to the spa, therefore you wont damage it in anyway.

If the keypad doesn't cure the problem, change the PCB.

Regards,
Ian.

Assuming that you've got adequate water flow, clean/new filter and the pump works as it should; Try a new sensor. They can and do sometimes fail and the sensor is much cheaper than the PCB. ;)

SOURCE: motor will not come on.

OH stands for Over Heat situation.
If the motor is not working at all, you are getting the OH code because of that. The OH happens when there is not enough circulation in the hot tub which causes the water near the heater to overheat the sensor located in that area. It sounds like either the pump has failed, the wiring has shorted to the motor, or the control board is not telling the pump to come on.
Its probably a bad motor since the heater is obviously activating, which it wouldnt if the pumps motor was getting no power. Replace motor and all should be well again.

I have just replaced my circuit board (balboa 53247) for my eclipse hot tub and as soon as I plugged the unit in, I got an OH reading from the top-side control. Then I noticed that if I pulled the temp....


Unfortunately, I would have started with the sensors and then escalated from there. A hot tub is one of those items that I generally recommend hiring a technician to sort out, it's just flat not worth the headache of troubleshooting without the know-how.

As for your particular problem, the OH code on a Balboa control pack is "O.ver H.eating" it means that the heat sensor detected high temp and shut down to prevent damage to the system (as well as cooking you like a pink lobster) The sensor could be bad or the control board could be malfunctioning. A new sensor is $75-85 if memory serves me and is relatively easy to replace. one sensor is in the heating tube and the other is screwed into the tub shell to monitor tub temp. I would suggest new sensors, both of them because when one goes out the other usually isn't far behind. Make sure you shut the power to the tub off at the breaker box before doing any kind of tub repair. If you have shutoff valves on your tub you can replace the internal one without draining the tub. the one in the shell you need to drain to replace (at least to the sensor hole level) I hope this helps you to get your tub working properly again, if you still experience issues after this, I suggest biting the bullet and calling in a tech. Thanks for your question =)

Will a flow switch stop the tub of any operation


Is the board getting power, is the control lighting up?
Do you see any error codes on the top side control?
Improper flow will give you an error code, caused by flow issues or a faulty flow switch. Make sure all gate valves are open and the water can flow freely.
If not then check your Hi Limit sensor. This is the overheat safety sensor if it fails the tub will not function at all.

Over heating showing oh water to hot


It sounds like you may have either too slow of water flow moving through the heater ( caused by a dirty filter ), or you may have a bad high limit sensor. Check to see that the filter is clean first.

We have a brand new Oasis Mohave spa and we wanted to run through a full cycle so we ran the tub for a week, no problems. then we drained and refilled the tub. Now we get dr or dy as error codes on the...


The dr error code is for "dry". Meaning that the control system is not sensing that water is flowing through the heating element.

With a new spa, and you just having drained it , it is probably an air locked pump.
What this means is that you have a small constant circulation pump with not much power, that got ait trapped in it when you drained. When you went to start back up, this "air lock" prevented the pump from fully priming.
Power down the spa at the breaker. Remove the filter element.Stick a garden hose with lots of pressure into the skimmer hole and open the hose valve to let water inject into the skimmer.
Restore power to the spa and check operation.
If after attempting this a few times you still get the code, there is an issue with your flowswitch, or with your circulation pump.
With a brand new spa, id like to hope that you just have an air lock.

Good luck

My hot tub had a OH where the temp usually is, then went blank and i wasnt able to reset it. i just replaced the cord and resiliconed around the temp readout


This is probally your temp sensor. Where it is on your system is hard to say. If you have a book on the system it will be in there.
