SOURCE: Dream Maker spa - does my dream maker spa 4 person

Depending upon the age, the Dream Maker has a digital thermostat which is easy to change but to be honest I don't think that is the cause of your problem.

Check the keypad connection on the PCB (circuit board).

t could be either the keypad or PCB at fault and withou trying one or the other you'll not be able to determine the problem. My advise would be for you to contact your local parts supplier and ask them whether or not they can supply you a keypad to try with the option to send it back for a refund if it doesn't cure the problem.

A keypad can be trial fitted to the PCB, just unplug the old one, plug the new one in and turn on the power. There's no need to install the keypad to the spa, therefore you wont damage it in anyway.

If the keypad doesn't cure the problem, change the PCB.

Regards,
Ian.

Older leisure bay tub. only a few buttons on topside panel work as they should. temp control buttons switch from economy to standard,cant raise or lower temp. Topside panel or control board?


Top side control. 90% sure by your description of problem. Buy the topside, plug it in and try it before you do full install. If it doesn't work you can return it. Most places won't take back a PC Board.

How to replace air controller topside


If you need to replace the control panel altogether, there are a few things you should know beforehand. Before you purchase a new panel, make sure it's compatible with your existing spa control pack. There is often a part number on the existing top side panel when you pull it out of the housing. A sticker is typically on the side indicating a part number from the manufacturer. Otherwise, get the number for your spa control pack and call the manufacturer to find out which top side panel will work for you.

Replacing a topside control panel is a fairly simple process. First, turn off the power to the unit. Remove the spa access panel and take the cover off of the control box and unplug the wire that goes form the topside panel to the circuit board. Gently remove the topside control panel. Remove the plastic from the self-stick backing of the topside controller. Place the topside controller in the place of the previous one. Plug in the topside wire to the circuit board and power back up the spa to test the function of the new unit.

Something seems to be wrong with my pump in my spa.


A loud, grinding, screaming, or screeching pump motor, will not show up on your Pumps Control Panel, with a fault code. Your bearings in the motor, are shot. And you will need to replace them, or the motor.
2nd possible problem - sorry : (
if nothing is displaying on your topside control panel, then your topside Control Panel appears to be bad, or the fuse that operates it has been blown. If there is a display in the readable part of the panel, but you have no access to make anything work, then you have some dead buttons, and once again you have a bad topside control panel.

Viking Destiny River 2013 hot tub led tub lights not working. Can hear relay engage when pressing lights on control panel. All not working.


Not exactly sure of your question?
If you pressed 'Light' button on topside control, do any lights come on, some lights, or No lights? Does the light 'Icon' come on, on the topside?
if there is an indicator on the topside that comes on when you press the appropriate button, then the communication between the topside and circuit board have been completed, and that action should work, in your case, the light should come on. If no indicator, that means circuit board received no communication to power the light (s). So... you hear a click? So do you also an indicator that lights should be on, if so - no lights are working, wire to light fixture is either unplugged, or light or lights are burned out, or bad wire connection.
if no indicator on topside control panel = Bad/dead light 'Button', which means bad panel - since you can't repair a button on a topside control panel.

Sparform hot tub blower won't turn off


When an appliance will not turn off, no matter what you press on the control panel, you have either a non responding (dead button) topside control panel, or your topside panel did receive the message to turn it off and the circuit board is not responding.
  • If you have some kind of indicator light when you press your Jet/pump button, if the topside panel is operational and does actually receive your request to either turn on or off an appliance, an indicator will appear - either a light or icon.
    • If one does appear when button pressed, then dis-appears when pressed, that means your panel is good - as it is responding to the pressing of the associated button.
      • Bad circuit board
    • If nothing appears when you press the button, no lights or icons - indication of topside receiving your request, then you you have a dead button.
      • Bad Topside Control Panel

I have a vita duet spa. It has a pb error and the jets or the lights will not turn on. Any suggestions?


Vita Spa Error code (PB) is a power board communication error. Turn off the power and then check the connection between the topside control and control box. check for loose or unplugged wires, unplug the topside control (after turning off the power) and check for signs of shorts or charring on the wiring ribbon/connectors. If you cannot find the source of the problem you will need to contact your dealer or repair technician. I hope this helps =)

I have a Leisurerite GL2000 and it wont heat. No error messages coming up so don't know why. Are you able to help please?


There are a couple of things for you to check.
Look for the heat indicator light on the topside panel. Is it on?
If it is on you may need a new temp sensor or hight limit sensor.
If it is NOT on the the pressure switch may be out.
Not sure why you are not getting an error code on the topside panel.

I just bought an old spa from someone and the control panel is not turning on. It was rebuilt a while back and according to the original owner it was working, and when I drained it it appeared it was being...


If you are SURE there is correct power up to the spa pack you need to check to see that the topside control is plugged into the board.
if it is plugged in, it is either the 24volt transformer supplying the topside control, or the topside control is failed.
Did you hook up the hot tub?
Most common cause of topside complete failure is connecting to an improper power supply. This will immediately fry the transformer, and also maybe the topside control. It you are luck there would be a small 2 amp fuse next to the transformer.
If the whole board is without power, but you know power is going into it, it could be the main 50 amp fuse, which is usually white and about 1.25" long

Marquis Hot Tub, Instrument Panels (Balboa Instruments main and side auxillary) do not display the LED read out. Replaced main control panel twice, replaced 250 W. 3/10 fuse.


The topside controls aren't fused so the fuses wont be the cause.

It can only be either the PCB, the topside controls, or a bad connection at fault. Check that they are plugged in correctly, make sure that the PCB is configured correctly for your topside controls.

It's rare for both the main and auxilary topside controls to fail. You can try plugging in another main topside control without fully installing it... at least you can then return it (ask whether or not return are accepted, I don't personally accept any returns if parts are specially ordered) if it doesn't cure the problem.

Ian.

The topside control panel is dysfunctional for turning on the jets. The on/off button doesn't work. The lights and temperature buttons work ok. The on/off button doesn't click on/off like the others.


It may be a bad control pad (topside) or control box (mounted behind the pump under the tub). I have replaced three bellavista control pad and boxes in the past 2 weeks. If you plan on keeping the tub have both the box and topside replaced. You can check the topside by gently prying it off the tub with a stiff putty knife or a blade of some kind, be very careful and take your time. When you have removed the topside, check the circuit board attached to the cable, if there is any corrosion on the board the topside is bad. It will cost 200.00 less shipping, the control box will cost 320.00 or more less shipping. topside part no. M465000 Control box part no. S474000 Both can be found on the internet under their part numbers.
