When the temp drops 1 degree, it will begin to heat up again. you may need a better cover, especially if it's cold outside. i would set it lower (like 100) and then when you know you are going to use it, turn it up and give it an hour or 2 to heat up...i used to have a timer on my old one and i loved that bc i had it set to heat up each night "just in case i wanted to use it"

My spa temperature light is blinking. It is set at 104 and the temperature is showing 118. Why is the temp blinking?

If you can contact your spa manufacturer they will usually send you the manual for your unit at no cost.
If the temperature is set at 104 it is at the high end of the safe temperature for a human. 102 is recommended, and 103 is OK for 15 to 20 minutes maximum.
If your spa is actually at 118 degrees, it could easily cause very severe medical heat distress. I would strongly recommend NOT using it until you can get the temperature down.
It's possible that the blinking light is a warning.

I am unable to lower the temperature on my dreammaker spa

Is it because the buttons are not responsive?
or is the set temp at 100 but just not dropping in actual water temp?
if former, bad control panel.
if latter, allow time to cool?

Spa will not get up to temp I set it to 103 and it only gets to 91

Go to a Pool & Spa Store & take your
owners manual, etc & discuss it there

91 may be a default setting when the pump is off
& it is not used,so you may have a problem

How long should it take to heat spa only

20 to 30 minutes.
if this is a pool and spa combo system, then you are not only sucking water from spa and returning only to spa!
you have a incorrect setting of the valves. It needs to be 100% suction from the tub, and 100% return of water to the tub.

My heater get's up tp 103 then it shut's off. How

104 is the hottest you are going to get it no matter what you do, at least with a thermostat made for a hot tub. It is the highest temperature allowed due to safety (health) reasons. Most thermostats are accurate to +/- a degree, so 103 sounds like the highest you are going to get it. Your only alternative is to try and rig the control circuit but I doubt anyone would want to encourage that since it involves circumventing the features in place to ensure the tub is safe.

We only use the heater for the spa. When we used it the other night, the water warmed up but didn't get hot. It said temp was 99 on the heater, but the thermometer in the spa said it was only 86. The...

Water temp sensor. Plugs into thermostat board and follow wires around to the main water header, there it should slide into the header. It will be a small tube connected to the wires. The new one will slide back into place, run wires back to the front of heater and plug back into board.
