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.

Have you opened the equipment access door and looked in it while it is running. I would look at the pumps to see if one of the seals are leaking. They will leak more on high speed and if you have a cir pump that runs the filter and an additional pump for high speed jet action it would make sense why it is leaking more while you are using it.

Code so when runs keep shuting off then over heat code so


not too familiar with that brand. If so is error for overheat check filters or run it without. filters could be clogged and is a common cause of overheat error code. Check circulation pump and make sure its working. Also if you recently drained and refilled you could have created a air lock that doesn't allow the pump to move water and its easily fixed by loosening the discharge end of the pump until the air comes out....you will notice it right away

1. Check equipment like pump, heater, blower, light fixture, for leaks.
2. Remove side panels closest to the are the leak is showing and inspect jets, plumbing in that area for leaks. If insulation is foam, remove any water saturated foam and follow it to the source of leak.


3. If the leak is in plumbing and is very slow, sometimes it can be resolved with "stop leak" products.

My dream maker spa at temp outside 40 is heating water till only 80 dont know what to do.


Hi,
This is common when your Heater element is bad.
The friction of the water moving through the pump typically will raise the water to around 80.

Keeps blowing 15 amp fuse on main cpu


A qualified Electrician should do this due to safety reasons.

Gain access to the stick heater:

http://www.spaplaceinc.com/proddetail.php?prod=461257

Disconnect one wire and tape it off. Then run the unit for the period that you said it blows the fuse of 2 - 3 hours. If the fuse does not blow then the heater is bad. If the fuse still blows most likely the motor/pump is dragging.

Motor/pump assy:
http://www.spaplaceinc.com/proddetail.php?prod=403627

There is a possibility of a wire that got pinched or chaffed somewhere and the possibility that water has damaged the electrical runs on the main board if there is an internal leak. Usually the problem is either the heater (Most often) or the Motor Pump Assy.

You unit has a plastic water jacket around the motor to keep it from overheating... sometimes this water jacket vibrates loose, then gets a hole in it and sprays water into the motor. If yours has a leak.... you can actually fix the hole with Marine Epoxy 2 part. The Epoxy will dry in about 4 hours to the point you can re-install the cooling jacket.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My hot tub keeps tripping the breaker and will only stay on for a short period of time before tripping the breaker. What can I do?


Check for a water leak in the electrical areas of your spa... specifically look closely around the heater terminals, look for wet and corroded connections... If this spa is wired to a plug-in outlet, look at the GFCI plug assembly as well... You can also try disconnecting the blower, pump, heater, etc, from the control pack (one at a time) to determine which item is causing the tripping.

We have a dreammaker spa, how do we drain it? the model is Fantasy


The Fantasy has a drain located in the toekick of the spa. You have to first remove the drain cap, attach a hose if you wish, spin the outer black ring counter clockwise to start the water flow, then pull the outer ring out away from the tub to increase the drain to full flow.
I understand that a screw driver is often needed to pull the outer ring out to achieve full flow. Therefore, I suggest another method. Take a garden hose and place it in front of the jet while the spa jets are on. This will force water flow thru the hose and prime the hose. Once you see water running from the other end of the hose, drop the hose in front of the spa jet into the footwell and as long as the loose end is lower than the end in the footwell, a siphon will drain the spa as fast as the spa drain will. Remember to turn off electric to the spa once you have established a siphon. You may have to bucket the last bit of water in the footwell. Goodluck.

No jet flow hot springs highlife 1990


you might have an air lock, when you first start filling the spa, start the water running in the skimmer first. that should force air out of the pump and should pick up prime right away. if not, you may have a valve problem.
