SOURCE: The topside control panel is dysfunctional for

It may be a bad control pad (topside) or control box (mounted behind the pump under the tub). I have replaced three bellavista control pad and boxes in the past 2 weeks. If you plan on keeping the tub have both the box and topside replaced. You can check the topside by gently prying it off the tub with a stiff putty knife or a blade of some kind, be very careful and take your time. When you have removed the topside, check the circuit board attached to the cable, if there is any corrosion on the board the topside is bad. It will cost 200.00 less shipping, the control box will cost 320.00 or more less shipping. topside part no. M465000 Control box part no. S474000 Both can be found on the internet under their part numbers.

SOURCE: Dream Maker spa - does my dream maker spa 4 person

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.

Ian.

SOURCE: We have a Great Lakes spa with a Balboa control

Contact Balboa's Customer support department directly at 800-645-3201, follow the prompts to customer tech support (or press 0 and ask for customer support). You will need to be at the spa, control panel open and ready to read off the chip number, and you will need to be proficient with a test meter (AC voltage). The SN error is related to a bad sensor(s), but can also indicate a failed board. An incorrect sensor set will also create this problem, so confirm you used the exact or compatible replacement. If the SN code issue is no longer a problem, but the spa is still not heating, look and see if the heater led is on. If it is, you likely have some burned relays on the board, which can be replaced cheaper than replacing the board. If you need more help, email me at info@coastsideservices.com

Do I have the correct controller for my Hot Tub? I have a Jacuzzi Lexus L.C. with a Balboa F1089R1A processor. I ordered a topside control panel online and received a Balboa VL701S but nothing is working...


Curios, why did you order another control panel? I need some history, when it worked, how it failed, any other information like if it was moved or rewired for power...etc.

I have a Balboa control board system (M2000 Programming and VL700S topside controller). I had to have the main board replaced recently because it blew up. Since then, the two speed pump is only one...


It sounds like it is 120/240 volt and that one of the lines is not working. Try turning off the breaker and turning it on again. You may have to use a tester to see where the fault is.

I need to replace my Weslo Spa Comand Panel, 4 button, ovel. will the Balboa work.


The best suggestion in this case would be to replace the spa pack and upgrade. this is a really old system. You can replace the entire system for around $500.00 and have the latest working technology along with a new topside panel, overlays, heater, system, etc. The Balboa Value Pack Retrofit kit comes with everything you need along with cables. Since you have Weslo with an oval panel, the best suggestion would be the Balboa 54219-Z Value Pack Retrofit Kit. you can get it online by clicking on the link I have provided.

Hope that helps.

The control is stuck on 93 farh and goes to celcius, but will not let me increase the temp! Led light goes from celcius to fiehight with temp stuck on 93! thanks todd


Understand that this information isbeing provided as-is and without warranty or guarantee. As with allelectrical components and devices, all work should be performed by a licensedspa or pool technician. Serious injury or death can occur if a component isimproperly repaired or installed. This ispossibly a topside issue. There is really no way to troubleshoot this problemwithout trying another topside control panel. If the issue continues with a new topside then the board will be at faultand needs to be replaced. There is a possibility that a faulty ozone could also cause this issue sounplugging the ozone would also be worth a try.

Marquis Hot Tub, Instrument Panels (Balboa Instruments main and side auxillary) do not display the LED read out. Replaced main control panel twice, replaced 250 W. 3/10 fuse.


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.

Ian.
