Priming can be done many different ways depending on thetubs design. Some tub manufactures provide bleed valves located on the plumbingjust beyond the pump and heater unions. Some pumps have a bleed valve locatedon the pump. If there are no bleed valves then you will have to release theunion nuts to allow the air to escape.

Balboa hot tub m7 wont power on at all

Either the spa is incorrectly wired or one of the fuses is blown in the spa pack. Typically this is due to your electrician wiring the spa incorrectly and blowing the fuse on accident.

I have a Balboa VS500Z . The circuit board burned up where the heater buses are located . I replaced the board and the heater . Know when I start the Spa it primes at low speed for about a minute . Then...


DR code - Inadequate water detected in heater.
HL code - Hi Limit, Spa over heat. In your case the Hi Limit is preventing the element from burning out.

This means there is no water or not enough water flowing through the heater.
Common causes:
Hi Limit sensor failure.
Blocked suction, skimmer.
Are the gate valves all the way open/up?
Pump is not functioning correctly, impeller/wet end failure.
These are the most common, but there are also other causes.

I hope that helps

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 have a balboa board #55098 and nothing works. I have disconnected everything and then tried powering up and it only clicks until the breaker trips any suggestions?

As with any troubleshooting over the Internet, this is like giving a haircut over the phone. So, that being said, this problem could be any number of reasons.

Here are some things you should have a spa technician look at (not in any specific order):

  • Power connections
  • Relay
  • Whether the transformer is seated properly
  • Whether there are loose wires
Disconnected all the components and see if it still does the same thing. If not, then one by one, reconnect the components until you isolate the problem. If the problem persists, then you might have a larger problem like a blown circuit board, etc.

Hope that helps!

Balboa vs500/501/502 gs500/501/502 I just refilled spa yesterday and now I'm getting error codes HL and dr both indicate low flow issues, The water level was re-filled to where it's always been. Any help...

A lot of times you can get an air lock as the spa fills. All you need to do to fix this is open the drain valve for a few seconds till it runs just water and no air. Or start the pump wile the drain is open. This should fix your problem. Good luck.
