SOURCE: My Hot Tub gets and HL msg as soon as I turn it

This is probally a high limit warning. If you have a reset on your heater it is probally popped out. If you have drained the tub latly this may be caused by an air lock in the pipes and can be remeied by opening the drain **** on the bottom of the tub till you get water out of it. If your pump or motor has gone bad you will get these same simptoms. If you have no reset on your heater you may have burnt the element and will need to replace it This a symptom not the real problem. You need to check these other things first and be sure you have moving water before you try the heater. I hope this helped and good luck.

SOURCE: Vibrations and banging when heater is turned on

wow! That heater that you have is meant for a very large swimming pool, quite a bit oversized, i bet i gets the job done quick though. I have seen before that somebody plumbed in a heater backwards, there are elevated arrows on the black manifold of the heater, make sure inlet and outlet are plumbed in correctly. Make sure you get your water tested. Because the water in your hot tub is no circulating as often (I assume) as a pool would be, the stagnate water sits inside the heat exchanger. What can happen, for instance, if you have high calcium, is the certain tubes inside the heat exchanged can get so clogged with calcium and they are completely shut and the banging noise is due to excessive heat build up inside the heat exchanger. This can ruin a heat exchanger very quickly and the heat exchanger is half the cost of the heater if you were to get a new one. You can check and see if tubes in the heat exchanger are clogged by taking the manifold off of the heat exchanger, and shining a flashlight down the different tubes. However you have to disassemble quite a bit to actually be able to do that.

SOURCE: My jacuzzi keeps emptying into the pool when the

I agree it sounds like a check valve. if the water in the pool matches the water level in the spa, or drains all the way (depending on how far the spa is raised) then it is the valve before the pump, but if it goes down to the jets (and not any further) then it is a check valve or valve on the retun side of the plumbing ( after heater or chlorinator).

SOURCE: Tub is not heating to

the Ec message is reffering to the mode the tub is set for. Ec stands for Economy mode. In Economy mode the heater will only come on during the filter cycle you have programmed. It will take a while for the tub to actually heat up in this mode. Change the mode to St mode which stands for Standard mode. Your manual should explain how to do this. usually you hit the temp button then the light button to change from mode to mode. Once the St is in the read out window don't touch anything and it will except the programmmed entry automatically. In the Standard mode the tub will keep heating until the set temperature is reached. then it will come on every half hr or so to check that the temperature is maintained.

Hot tub in EC with light flashing


Ecn or Ec Message
Ecn or Ec Message

If the Ecn or Ec Message is Alternating with the Water Temperature on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Economy Heating Mode.

If the Ecn or Ec Message is ON Solid (Not Flashing) on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Economy Heating Mode, but there is No current water temperature because the Spa is between Filter Cycles.

Ecn or Ec is Alternating with Temp:
The Spa is Operating in the "Economy" (Ecn or Ec) Heating Mode.

The Water Temperature is Sampled Only during Programmed Filter Cycles. The Heater will Only operate and Heat up to Set Temperature during the Filter Cycles. The Water Temperature will probably drop Below Set Temperature between Filter Cycles. Other Heating Modes are Standard, Standard in Economy, and Sleep Modes.

Ecn or Ec is ON Solid (Not Flashing):
The Current Water Temperature is "Unknown" (- - - or - -) while in Economy or Sleep Mode.

Between Filter Cycles, while in the Economy or Sleep Heating Modes, the Pump has not turned ON and the Last Water Temperature is not Current. To read the Current Water Temperature, either Change to Standard Heating Mode or turn On the Heating Related Pump, and wait at least 2 Minutes.

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

Just drained and refilled, plugged back in and hot tub is not heating. Three lights flashing at temp controls. Is there a reset


Most hot tubs have a freeze protection that will lock you out and run the pumps full blast with no heater if the temerature is under 50 degrees F.The circulating pumps create heat until the water temp is above 50 degrees, and then the heater will come on after that.
Hot tubs do this to protect themselves and it is normal operation.

Even thuogh I made sure it was not on economy mode my hot tub will not heat up and the message board keeps flashing the word cool, do you know what could cause this?


it may be a bad temperature sensor or a bad heating element. Sounds more like a heating element. The cool should just be a warning or depending on the model, could mean that it thinks the water is too hot and is in "cool" mode trying to cool the water. Have the temp sensor and the heating element checked.

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?
