Solid or flashing "Fl"?

Understand that this information is beingprovided as-is and without warranty or guarantee. As with all electricalcomponents and devices, all work should be performed by a licensed spa or pooltechnician. Serious injury or death can occur if a component is improperlyrepaired or installed.

There are several reasons the breaker can trip. It could bea bad pump, bad heater, GFCI or wiring issue.... Typically unplugging eachcomponent will help isolate which component is causing the trip. It is rare fora board to cause a breaker trip, so if all components (including both legs ofthe heater) are disconnected and the breaker continues to trip then you move onto wiring or the GFCI.

SOURCE: breaker tripping

This could be a heating element issue. it could be a bad element. Disconnect the two leads going to the heating element and then turn the breaker back on. If it will run and not trip the breaker then you have found the problem.
On the heater tube there is a silver sticker that will have the information you need to identify what model heater you have and what the kw of the element is. It will either be 4 Kw or 5.5 Kw
You may contact us for more information about this or purchase the replacement element at www.uspartscenter.com

Turn breaker power off. Verify now power to unit with volt meter. Most systems have in line over temp over current to protect circuit board and motor. Also the water level switch must be made to complete interlock condition. Check the heater coil for continuityas it may have opened. Check heater for continuity to each coil set. There is an interlock that is for diagnostics on start up that will prevent unit from starting. Look for any melted wires or components too. Always know and verify breaker settings. Verify your meter with known voltage reading first. Be safe my friend.

It is possible that the board is bad. A loose connection orlow voltage issue may also cause this problem to occur. If the voltages arewithin the acceptable rand and all connection are tight then remove any accessoryequipment and restart the unit to see if the problem continues. If it does thena new board will probably resolve the issue.

Upper control panel flickers and will not allow me to control temo


how old is spa?
if new then circuit board maybe set on a mode setting that is used when being tested in the factory, locate dipswitch block on circuit board and move dip switch for MODE, should have a layout of dip switches on reverse of lid to control box
if older then you may need a new control panel (top side)

My hot tub is getting power but I cannot get anything to run


you may have a circuit board error that is not allowing you to operate the controls or the top side may need replacing.
try locating the back up battery on circuit board and resetting it to restart your memory, does not always work but worth a try.
normally a J45 jumper, is marked on circuit board
