I have a balboa VS system and just drained and refilled. Now it sometimes heats up but if I set to ECN mode, it comes up with what looks like "SoS" on the display. Any ideas?

My Balboa 300F hot tub will not heat up. I am not able to get it out of economy mode. What can I do?


First, balboa does not manufacture hot tubs! They make control systems for hot tubs. If you are no longer able to switch between modes, then your topside control panel buttons are dead or falling. But... Even if you are still in economy mode, spa should still heat up. Once a demand for heat is recognized, you have a "Heat Call" and heater should come on. Is the "heat on" light, illuminated? If so, water should be heating, if not heater element may be bad? A multi meter would be good here: is there proper voltage at terminals on circuit board to heater? If so, bad element! If no voltage, then heater is not necessarily bad, probably just fine, I would then look at sensors? Good luck

A downeast hot tub water is only 78 degrees turn up to 100 doesn't never get warmer and shows a ECn code


Check your filter cycles and switch spa into Standard Mode as you have it in Economy. (In Economy mode it will only heat during the filter cycles).
If the Ecn or Ec Message is Alternating with the Water Temperature on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Economy Heating Mode.

If the Ecn or Ec Message is ON Solid (Not Flashing) on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Economy Heating Mode, but there is No current water temperature because the Spa is between Filter Cycles.

Ecn or Ec is Alternating with Temp:
The Spa is Operating in the "Economy" (Ecn or Ec) Heating Mode.

The Water Temperature is Sampled Only during Programmed Filter Cycles. The Heater will Only operate and Heat up to Set Temperature during the Filter Cycles. The Water Temperature will probably drop Below Set Temperature between Filter Cycles. Other Heating Modes are Standard, Standard in Economy, and Sleep Modes.

Ecn or Ec is ON Solid (Not Flashing):
The Current Water Temperature is "Unknown" (- - - or - -) while in Economy or Sleep Mode.

Between Filter Cycles, while in the Economy or Sleep Heating Modes, the Pump has not turned ON and the Last Water Temperature is not Current. To read the Current Water Temperature, either Change to Standard Heating Mode or turn On the Heating Related Pump, and wait at least 2 Minutes.

Balboa control board wiring for 2 pumps, no circulation pump though


I believe you are barking up the wrong tree.
If I understand you correctly, the pumps are backwards!!!
Pump #1 is always a 2 speed pump.
Pump #2 is usually just a 1 speed pump.
When the filtration cycle comes on, "Low" speed is supposed to be the speed that does the heating.
But when your pump is on high speed, the movement of water is creating friction and that will heat the water and provide you all of the error codes you have been experiencing.
A 2 speed pump is normally a "Circulation" pump.
as far as dip switch settings, there is a key on the label on the inside of the load box cover. It will be in a little table.

Spa Heater problems- Balboa VS-501 controls #54356.


Use a high quality external temp probe and make sure the temp sensor in your system is correctly reading the water temp.
If the water is truly 110 then you may need to replace the board completely.

I need a users manual for the BalcoaValue 3 stystem, as I bought a house with a Great Lakesspa and I have no clue as to how to use the control. I need, specifically, to know how to adjust the temperature...


First and foremost, there really is no such thing as a Value 3 System by Balboa. Balboa has a large line of systems with various names such as Value Pack Retrofit kits, VS, ES, GS, and our new LM8000 systems. If you can locate your product part number on your system, you can visit the Balboa Direct website manual downloaded section at: BALBOA DIRECT MANUALS and download the latest manual for your product.

Hope that helps.

Control panel on hot tub is flashing ECN


The hot tub is in 'Economy' mode.

If you have a 'mode' button, press it until 'STD' shows. This will put the system back into the Standard mode.

If you don't have a 'mode' button drop me an email with a picture of your keypad and I'll try to advise you on what to press. hottubengineer@hotmail.co.uk

Ian.
