It appears per your test that the heater May not be the problem as it shows that it may be good.

Your error message is a Flow condition / Restriction

Try cleaning the filter

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.

You need to check your temp sensor and your high limit. Both are tubes that slide into the plumbing on or near your heater. If this is a tube heater then they are probally at on each end of the heater and will have small wires coming from them that go back to the control board. Farely common problem and easy enough to fix with replaceing them both. A number of models wire them together so they come as one part. Good luck.

We can't get our hot tub to heat. The heater light comes on but the heater still won't heat.


heating elements are resistors that get hot
one end will have 115 volts but the other end should be considerable less because the resistance of the heating element drops the voltage
if you used a ohm meter you should be reading a resistance of 500-1000 ohms for a good heater element but with your readings , there will be no resistance so the element is faulty

Leisure Bay spa will not heat past 86 degrees. Element and sensors are new. Spa has excellent flow and correct voltage at terminals.


if the spa does not heat up to 104 degrees then the temp sensor is what you are going to need.
Are there error codes showing on the screen of the topside?
You will need to know the model number of the control box or the model number of the heater tube in order to get the proper sensor.

Model # SWR12R5GDCOH 40amp - 240V - 3+g wiring - phase 1 - 6.0kw heater I was given this spa Friday (working). At my home and wired on Sunday and everything works except I'm getting no heat. The red...


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


Use a digital or analog multimeter to test the heater. Start with voltage to the element probes inside the control box. They will protrude from the S.S. pipe into the control area. Confirm you have 230VAC line to line and then confirm 115VAC from each post to ground. Any variation of more than 10% from those numbers would suggest you have electrical issues.

If you have acceptable voltage to the element and it still will not heat turn all the power off and disconnect one of the line leads from the element post. Use the lowest ohm scale on the meter to measure resistance across the element. A typical reading is somewhere around 10 - 15 ohms...a very low resistance reading. Anything above 20 indicates problems with the element. What you will likely find is an element with infinite or some other reading WAY higher than even 20 ohms. Replacing an electric heater element in a spa heater is a fairly typical repair.

Filled artic spa 36 hours ago. not heating properly. what should I check?


If you don't have any error codes, FLO, FLC, then there is a chance your heater has burnt out. You would need an Ohm meter to measure if you have continuity thru the heater element. You should read 11 to 12 ohms. If you have either FLO or FLC on the display this indicates a problem with the pressure switch. The pressure switch is threaded into the side of the heater, the stainless steel tube attached to the #1 or main pump. Its a round module with two wires attached to it. There is an adjusting post in the center of the module. For an FLO code turn the post half a turn CCW. For an FLC code turn it half a turn CW. If this does not solve the problem replace the pressure switch.

When turned on everything seems to be operating except the heat. I have an older model matag MDG9520BWW. Does it sound like the heating element?


well there are several things in line with the heater that it could be as well check the thermostats and the thermal fuses they are on the heater housing and the blower housing they all should test closed or with "0" resistance with an "ohm" meter as well as the element should read closed or "0" ohms if it is good

Dishwasher does not dry dishes. dishes are not hot at end of cycle. seems like heating element is not heating


Connect a volt meter one lead at each terminal of the heater. Read the voltage when it is in the drying cycle. If you get about line voltage the heating element is bad. If you get no or very little voltage it is the timing unit. If you are uncomfortable measuring voltage remove one of the wires from the heating element, after unplugging it, then connect a ohm meter across the heater. If it reads above about 50 ohms it is bad, if not probably the timer. Of course you could always connect a light bulb across the two heater terminals and if it lights during the drying cycle the heater is bad.
Good Luck,
Gil
