Some electronic digital topside control panels do not have an UP & DOWN Arrow!
I would like to believe that most people would be smart enough to figure out that pressing an available Up Arrow would raise heat!
So... If there are no arrows on spa side panel, only a single "Temp or Heat or Heater Icon" button, then press once and release, temp will now be flashing. Now press again, temp should increase by one degree. Each subsequent press will raise temp.
If Lowering the temp was wanted, then press once and release. Numbers will be flashing, press again, temp increases by one. WAIT, till flashing stops. Now press once and release, temp will flash again, press again - Now, temp will go in opposite direction and will decrease by one with each press.
Good Luck

You do not have a Balboa Hot Tub. That is the company that made the control panel for it. Id venture to guess it's either a Hawkeye, Barefoot or Master spa if it came with no owners manual. To turn up the heat simply press the Red "up" arrow on the digital control pad. Check out the link below. It's a quick reference guide to what I'm guessing is your top side control.

The topside controls aren't fused so the fuses wont be the cause.

It can only be either the PCB, the topside controls, or a bad connection at fault. Check that they are plugged in correctly, make sure that the PCB is configured correctly for your topside controls.

It's rare for both the main and auxilary topside controls to fail. You can try plugging in another main topside control without fully installing it... at least you can then return it (ask whether or not return are accepted, I don't personally accept any returns if parts are specially ordered) if it doesn't cure the problem.

Regards,
Ian.

SOURCE: great lakes balboa 2000 le wont change out of econo mode so doesnt heat up

Are there any error codes?
Is the control panel locked?
If no check your Hi Limit sensor, it is a thermal protection/overheat sensor which is the spas safety device. If that sensor is bad the spa will not operate/heat at all.

CAUTION: Electrical work and repairs can be dangerous, especially around water. There is a risk of shock or electrocution, which could result in serious injury or death. We strongly advise that hot tub electrical wiring be referred to a licensed electrician. Local code requirements for wiring vary and may differ from the educational examples on this web site. The local code regulations must be followed, with permits and inspections obtained. The installer should read and follow the hot tub owner's manual and associated electrical component owner's manuals and instructions.

I have a density riverspas hot tub and it is stuck in sleep mode and there for won't heat up how do I take my density riverspas hot tub out of sleep mode


Difficult to answer without knowing the "Brand" of your Spa Support Pak System. Lets presume you have the most common basic pak available - Balboa.
Press "Temp" button and then immediately press "Light". You will then sequence between 3 modes:
  • Economy - may display as Ec
  • Standard - may display as Std or St
  • Sleep - may display as Sl
Should save last setting

Hot tub stuck in 'SL' mode


Need to know what buttons your topside control has... depending on the model, some have a mode button which you press and release and then immediately press the temp up or down, to select SL for sleep (no heat), ST for standard (heat as needed) or EC for Economy (only heat during filtration). If the mode button is not present, and you have a single temp button and light button, try pressing and releasing temp and then immediately pressing light button, repeat until choice appears, then wait, it will hold last displayed mode.
