Question about Dream Maker Spas Pool & Spa

Open Question

Eclipse heating The Eclipse will not heat above 37C & temperature drops after 10 minutes in the tub. I have removed the noisy motor for servicing. Is there any way of improving a heating system that works on waste heat from the motor? Surely, replacing the motor with a more energy efficient one is only going to exacerbate the problem?

    Just dismantled the pump & the impeller is fine. About to run it on the bench to check noise levels. Did notice how inefficient the heating design was with no dedicated heat exchanger in the system. Are there such upgrade replacement items that may do the trick. Also forgot to mention that the warm up trial was done with an old cover on but a quilt over the top. A new cover is on order.

SOURCE: pump is running ever 5 minutes. The heat in the

Sounds as if the 'mode' for the tub is set to sense the temperature of the water. see if there is a setting on the control box to a 'timed' setting for filtering and heating instead of controlled by the temperature setting. the problem is the the control box is away from the water and when it calls for heat it is because the water is cooler there than in the hot tub. so when it calls for heat and the water starts to circulate it gets the hot water from the body of the hot tub and then shut down because it senses the 'hot water'. make sense?

SOURCE: We have a Pentair 400 heater. First time to heat

You probally just need to increase your water flow. On the pipes going to the heater their should be a valve bridging the inlet and outlet pipes. This valve should be closed about 80-90% so it forces more water through the heater. I hope this helps.

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi eclipse and my radiator fans run from startup a few minutes after shut off.It affects heat until higher rpms.i need better heat and quicker.

Here are a couple of thoughts on this problem:

1. Just for fun and giggles, it might be a good idea to have the thermostat checked one more time. I know it is a new thermostat but you never known if a thermostat may have failed even right out of the box. It is possible that thermostat could be shot, even thought it was new. I know it is a long-shot, but it never hurts to give it a try.
2. Check the fan sensors. The Eclipse has used an electric, rather than mechanical, fan for some time. It is possible over time that the start and stop sensors can go out of tune and that they can raise your fan's run rate on starting, cruising and idling. In this case, the mechanic is right in that the higher speed is causing the coolant to be cooled off more quickly than it should and the result is that your vehicle's cooling system is causing problems for your Eclipse's heater sensors. If the sensors don't get information that the coolant flowing through their portion of the cooling system isn't the right temperature then the heater won't kick off and all that will happen is that the heater will wait until it senses the coolant is the right temperature.

I have a 2006 Eclipse and the maps lights are not working. I checked the fuse and bulbs and they appear to be ok

Check the wires behind the light fixture. Open it again to service the bulbs. There could be a screw or two you have to remove to get to the back of it. If you have a bad wire or connector, you will see it. Lots of heat on these.

2001 mitsubishi eclipse won't start.

I had the same problem with my 2001 Eclipse last week. Headlights, Radio and such all worked but the car would not crank up. Sounds like your "starter" needs to be replaced. The "Starter will have the solnoid attched to it also" Remove he "Starter and take it tested at an Advance Auto store for free.

To remove the starter you will have to raise the car up, and remove the small metal heat shield.
