    The heater is in the pump area. Look for a reset button. Don't turn the heater on unless the tub is full. It will burn the heater out almost instantly.

Turn off the electricity. unhook the two wires going to the heater. Hook up a meter to the two connectors. set the meter to ohms and ohm the heater out. If it has an open in it replace the heater.

Spa thermal overheating


Turn off all power to the hot tub as soon as you realize it is overheating. The spa should have an automatic shut off when the water temperature reaches about 112 degrees fahrenheit. Call your hot tub dealer or manufacturer for service options. There are a variety of conditions that could lead to the overheating of your hot tub, but may differ in various hot tub models and brands. Check the water level of the hot tub. Low water levels could be the culprit for the over heating, so you may just need to add more water to the hot tub.
Check the shut-off valves in the hot tub. If they are closed while the hot tub heater is on, it could cause the water to reach unsafe temperatures.
Clean the hot tub filter. A dirty filter could be blocking the flow of water, causing the water to sit in the hot tub and overheat.
Turn the power back on after finding the problem and talking to the hot tub dealer. The hot tub will probably not start back up until the water reaches a safe temperature

We have a brand new Oasis Mohave spa and we wanted to run through a full cycle so we ran the tub for a week, no problems. then we drained and refilled the tub. Now we get dr or dy as error codes on the...


The dr error code is for "dry". Meaning that the control system is not sensing that water is flowing through the heating element.

With a new spa, and you just having drained it , it is probably an air locked pump.
What this means is that you have a small constant circulation pump with not much power, that got ait trapped in it when you drained. When you went to start back up, this "air lock" prevented the pump from fully priming.
Power down the spa at the breaker. Remove the filter element.Stick a garden hose with lots of pressure into the skimmer hole and open the hose valve to let water inject into the skimmer.
Restore power to the spa and check operation.
If after attempting this a few times you still get the code, there is an issue with your flowswitch, or with your circulation pump.
With a brand new spa, id like to hope that you just have an air lock.

Good luck

Control flashes oh


This code is for an OverHeat situation.
This could happen for a number of reasons. The most likely are either a clogged impeller inside the circulation pump, or a clogged cartridge filter.

Even if the filter looks clean, they only have 6 months recommended use in a residential hot tub before invisible debris start to clog them. Once the filter is clogged, the flow of water is greatly reduced. Once the water flow is reduced, the water flowing through the heating element starts to OverHeat due to being in contact with with the heater for too long.

Cut the power to the spa off, remove the filter element, reapply power to the spa, and check for the code. If it does not reappear, simply get a new filter element.

If the code reappears, clean out the pump impeller. and reset power again.

As a last resort, you might have to check the thermistor. Its rare, but a thermistor can fail and show a false high temp reading.

Hello. my dishwasher leaves gunk on the inside of glasses that were wiped clean before washing. It seems like that would mean the drain to the disposal is clogged but the hose is clear and the impellar is...


There are many probable causes of failure .

A dishwasher's water inlet valve is its most common part to fail. When your dishes are not being fully cleaned, quite often a faulty water inlet valve is to blame. Test your dishwasher's water inlet valve, and if it is no longer functioning as it should, you will have to replace it.

Water temperature is a key element in achieving clean dishes. A dishwasher's heating element is not designed to heat the water that enters it. Rather, the heating element is designed to maintain the heat of the water that enters the dishwasher. Its a good idea to run the hot water in your sink for a couple of minutes before you run the dishwasher. Just to make sure the water is nice and hot before it enters the dishwasher. If the water is unable to stay hot, it can adversely affect your dishwasher's cleaning ability.


There is a filter in your dishwasher. Its function is to keep large particles of food and foreign objects away from the pump. Many of the newly-manufactured dishwashers have self-cleaning filters, and routine cleaning isn't a concern. However, some other dishwashers need to have the filter removed and cleaned regularly. If the filter or grate is clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal functioning of your dishwasher

Hot water does not last long. Model 82vh40-2 mnf. 05/2005


If the lower heating element burns out the upper element will heat the top part of the tank then shutoff. homw depot/lowes etc should carry elements. 1 turn off breaker, remove element access cover (the 2 panels on the front of the heater) test for electricity at the reset button ( uppermost device in upper panel) to make sure power is off. 2 turn off water (I usually turn off the cold water main to stop water cross feeding into hot supply line back into heater) 3 disconnect the 2 wires on the lower element, test with continuity tester. shhould be no continuity between terminals and tank, but around 10 ohms between the 2 terminals. Check the thermostat for continuity if tank is cold thermostat should be closed ie zero ohms across the 2 terminals.
If stat is bad replace stat; disconnect wires push it up out of the spring clip insert new stat reconnect. If element is bad: drain tank. connect garden hose to tank drain valve, open tank drain valve turn water main on to clear rust sediment and get water flowing. Next remove filter screen from a hot water faucet then turn on ( a hot faucet upstairs or higher than tank drain). Now turn water main off, air will now go in through hot faucet and tank will drain, takes about an hour. Use a water heater element wrench about$10 to remove element(s) make sure no bits of rubber gasket are left in element opening- dig em out with a screwdriver if needed. Insert new element with its gasket and tighten. reconnect wires DO NOT TURN ON ELECTRICITY! BE SURE TO FILL WATER HEATER WITH WATER ! Turn water main back on -air will come out of the hot faucet for several minutes. When water runs without any air sputtering, turn off faucet and replace the faucet filter screen. check element(s) for leaks. turn breaker back on.

If your water level is below the heating element that is normal after a wash. Some unit the water will not always drain (relates normally to low water pressure or hose length or height)

If your water level is below the heating element and your dishes ALWAYS clean then its fine, the water drains out before a new wash so you are not using the same water

if water is above heating element, run garbage disposal to clear lines if one is installed, if not you could have a clogged line/hose/sump/filter
