What model of balboa control do you have?
Will it come right back on after power down / power up?
Does it have a mechanical time clock?
Is temperature of water Hot?
when temp control is scaled down, will it turn off?
what do you mean - Temp ok?
If a mechanical time clock, pull the wires off of terminal 3 & 4,
isolate them! They will be HOT.
1 & 2 are for the timers internal 24 Hr. Motor.
but... First turn power off!
Turn power back on, if pump stays off, bad timer.

If you have a user manual check the filter duration isn't set to continuous.

Maytag washer repair


The washing machine timer can be considered the brain that controls the washing machine's systems. Although timers are ruggedly constructed, they contain a variety of tiny parts, like springs and movable contacts, that can develop problems that keep the machine from operating properly. The movable contacts can become burned and fuse together or they can become stuck in the open position, thus disrupting the wash cycles. The timer's motor can also become defective, thus preventing the timer from advancing through its cycles.

a defective timer motor, the motor's control contacts stuck in the open position or defective drive gears. Unplug the timer's wiring harness, then, with the timer set to any position other than off, check for continuity through the motor contacts. Continuity will be indicated by a "0.000" on the meter's display. A pictorial diagram on the back of the machine will tell you which numbers on the timer socket corresponds to which set of contacts in the timer. Likewise, a functional timer motor will display a resistance reading greater than 0.000, but less than 5 ohms. Open contacts or a defective motor winding will be indicated by an "O.L." on the meter's display.
IF A defective timer will only work in some cycles and not others. Then check for a broken wire in the wiring harness, check for continuity through those contacts using your meter. Wires in the wiring harness can break, but it's not a common occurrence unless they get pinched during the assembly of the machine.

If the same part of each cycle setting, such as the spin cycle does not operate properly, the problem probably is not the timer but some other component such as the transmission shifting mechanism. If the problem occurs when using only one cycle setting, the problem is a bad timer.

Won't. Shut off


Dryer will not shut off:

The timer: Located in the control console of the dryer the timer consists of a small motor connected to a series of gears that rotate cams, which turn electric contacts off and on inside the timer. The timer contacts control the dryer motor as well as the heat circuit and the timer motor itself. A defective timer motor or a defect in the timer's electrical contacts can cause the timer motor to fail and the timer will need to be replaced. The contacts can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. This test should only be made when the dryer is unplugged. Another test u can do is observe by eyesight and see does the timer advance or is it stuck on one cycle?


1. On gas and electric dryers that have an "Auto Dry" cycle, the cycling thermostat is often used to advance the timer as well regulate the drum temperature. Essentially, thermostat will alternately turn on the heat source or the timer motor when the temperature has been satisfied. To check this thermostat, you will have to check for power to the timer motor with a multi-meter, during a cycle. This is a live voltage test and caution should be used.

2. Some dryers will use a cool down thermostat to tumble the clothes without heat, at the end of the dry cycle. Power is routed through this thermostat to the drive motor to keep it running until the drum temperature has dropped to a specific temperature. If this thermostat fails it can cause the drum to turn indefinitely or until the door is opened. You can check the thermostat for continuity with a multi-meter. This test should only be made with the power removed from the dryer.

Spa heateer run by Balboa 500Z control box. Standard mode will not shut off. Lowering temp to 88 still gets temp up to104.what is problem?


Sounds like the temp probe is not working or is disconnected. Temp going high, motor running means that it is calling for more heat which brings both the heater and the pump on until after set temp is reached. Once reached, heater will turn off and a few seconds later the pump will shut down.

Check connections for the temp probe. If connected make sure probe is where it should be. If it is, might try to replace it before considering the control board.

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.

The refrigerator on our Roper side by side refrigerator/freezer has frozen everything from veggies to milk. Any clue as to what the problem might be? Greg Russell


Your thermostat has probably got its contacts withing fried together and it is not shutting down.
Obviously the compressor and fans are working fine. It has to be in your control. Your ice box has a mercury based control. The temp is controled by it and nothing else. It can fail by burnt out contact. (open) OR Fried together contacts (stuck together won't shut down). OR Loss of mercury in the probe.OR kinked probe.

This is very much relay problem. The olden days relay get stuck due to residual magnetism. Or spring would have snapped. Or contacts would have bonded permanently. Check these or replace the relay totally.
