Question about Pool & Spa

Open Question

Catalina spa I just got a 2003 Catalina CL300 and the Pump keeps running all the time. It ran all night last night and it heated up to 104 when I have it set at 97. I have the filter cycle set for FC8. Does this sound like a sensor malfunction?

SOURCE: I have an older Catalina spa with acura controls.

These older style controls are easily repaired but require some electrical diagnosis expertise to determine the problem.
1. Check the pressure switch to make sure it is working properly - Use a continuity checker to see if the pressure switch is closed when pump is running. If not then check for proper water flow. Dirty filter, obstruction in plumbing. If flow is good, replace the pressure switch and see if heater works.
2. Check to see if the heater has 220V at the heater terminals when heater circuit is running. If not, then check to see if the heater contactor (relay) is actuating. Check Hi-limit switch, Thermostat and pressure switch for continuity. If heater has voltage, check for current draw, using a clamp style amp meter around on of the heater wires. look for about 20 amps. If voltage is present but no current draw, the heater is bad.
3. The spa light is a completely separate circuit, check the air switch, air line, button and light bulb. Its a 12V AC circuit.

My catalina spa keeps popping the breaker and won't turn on

First, we have to establish what you mean by turn on the unit. Is the GFCI breaker set on when you try to turn the "unit" on? What are you activating to turn the "unit" on? A switch, a disconnect, a button on the topside controller, etc.? Need clarification before we proceed to diagnose. At what level do you understand electricity? Is there a licensed electrician available?

Please answer and we will take it from there. OK?

When the control panel does not light up this means the panel is not working and needs to be replaced.

Catalina spam

Hi, Lori Thanks for the question. It sounds as though your tub froze over and tripped the freeze sensor. If the freeze caution is gone and the tub will not rise to temp, either 1 of the heat sensors or heating element has gone bad. With a bad element or sensor you should have an error code on your topside display. At this point I would recommend contacting a Spa Technician, unless you have some spa repair knowledge or feel comfortable attempting a self repair. I hope I was able to help, Thanks again!

Can you locate front rotors for a 69 Pontiac Catalina?

Should be drums in the front of the Catalina? sells RAYBESTOS Part # 1270 which are for the front of the 65-70 Catalina, and 68-70 Catalina Ventura.

"IF" you are talking about a conversion kit to run disc brakes on the front that is a different story.
