SOURCE: No Heat from Spa

Tcarrigan,

Heater contactors "buzzing": Do you mean normal buzzing or extra loud buzzing? Loud buzzing or chattering can be caused by low voltage to a contactor. If normal sounds, then probably the relays on the contactors is working, but the contacts may be stuck, or burned enough so as not to make contact. First, get a voltmeter and check for 240 volts AC at the heater contactor terminals. If the voltage is low, most likely you need to check the contactors further. Check for dirty contacts, clean if needed. If the contacts are not moving when energized, then you will probably need to replace one or both of the contactors.

SOURCE: Heater cycles on and of, pool/spa does not reach desired temp

hello, It sounds like you may not be getting circulation thru the heater. Make sure the valves are open to allow water to pass thru the heating system. Some systems use a bypass on the heater so there is not a lot of wear on the coil system in the heater. If it is not circulating it will get too hot and the safety shut down will occure. If you are getting water circulating thru the heater, then the thermocouple or auto start igniter system is not working correctly. It is trying to start and can't then recycles. If the burners are igniting on the startup and then shutting back down you may have a bad control unit or thermal sensor unit. Since the unit is gas have a professional service it for you. Good Luck, RAC

SOURCE: spa wont heat

Check the pump make sure that it is getting power. If there is power to the pump and nothing is working then pump is bad. Also this could be your computer board is bad, a inline fuse. or the Jandy is bad

SOURCE: layz spa pump

same problem I had so I seperated the globe by taking out the 5 screws around the middle then removed the nut from the hole the filter sits on its a strange fitting and must have a special key but I improvised by tapping it anticlockwise using a screwdriver and rubber mallet, once open identify the heater unit (it has a single wire going into it and is fastened to a length of metal pipe) and remove it by loosening the clamps at either side and pull the heater free, once free dismantle the plastic casing on the top of the heater inside you will see the live, neutral and earth wires, you can see the live (brown) wire goes to the water flow switch then the temp switch then the heater all I did was bypass the water flow switch by disconnecting the short wire from it going to the heat sensor and replacing it with the brown wire coming from the mains and it works fine now

SOURCE: I want to heat the

When your system is put into Spa mode the system draws water from the spa only to the heater to keep the spa at temp, this is why the overflow doesn't work and why you can not heat the pool in spa mode. If you could heat the pool this way it would take a very long time, since the spa is smaller then the pool. You can heat the pool and spa at the same time in pool mode. Water is pulled from the pool, heated and goes back into the pool and spa.

The red light on heater won't turn on


This is an indication that the pressure switch is not working. When it completes the circuit thru the pressure switch it send power to the heater. It is the last fail-safe before power goes to the heater.

My Balboa 300F hot tub will not heat up. I am not able to get it out of economy mode. What can I do?


First, balboa does not manufacture hot tubs! They make control systems for hot tubs. If you are no longer able to switch between modes, then your topside control panel buttons are dead or falling. But... Even if you are still in economy mode, spa should still heat up. Once a demand for heat is recognized, you have a "Heat Call" and heater should come on. Is the "heat on" light, illuminated? If so, water should be heating, if not heater element may be bad? A multi meter would be good here: is there proper voltage at terminals on circuit board to heater? If so, bad element! If no voltage, then heater is not necessarily bad, probably just fine, I would then look at sensors? Good luck

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.

My balboa spa says sl and isn't heating up


SLP or SL Message

If the SLP or SL Message is Alternating with the Water Temperature on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Sleep Heating Mode.

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