We need more info. Which control system is it? Suntouch, easytouch, intellitouch.......? It sounds like a programming problem in the controller.

SOURCE: hot tub no heater or pump heater light flashing

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

Start with the pump. If it is bound up and not starting nothing else will work. Close off your valves and disconnect the pump unions. Once free, reach in with the pump unplugged and try to turn the impeller by hand. Will it turn? If not, you'll need to free it or get the pump repaired. Once the pump is working and water circulating your heater should start working.

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

SOURCE: Need to replace pump Impeller on A.O. Smith

To get to the Impeller you need to remove a series of bolts, or a large clamp, that holds the two halves of the pump together. Once you do that, if their is a diffuser (housing that goes over the impeller), remove it. To remove the impeller, you need to lock the motor shaft. You can do this a couple different ways depending on the motor. There will either be a small cap that grants access to the motor shaft on the back of the motor, or you remove a larger housing that grants access to the wiring and other components in the back of the motor. If it's the small cap, then you can hold the shaft with a wrench. If it's the larger housing, then you can slip a wrench (probably 7/16") under the thermal overload switch and onto the shaft to lock it in place. Now you can unscrew the impeller. Check to see if the impeller has a screw in the center. If so remove this first. It will be reverse thread. The impeller should spin off counter clockwise. If the impeller is very tight, be careful not to damage it. If you don't have an impeller wrench, I strap wrench, or very large locking pliers with a rag around the impeller works well. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave a good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!

SOURCE: How do I connect the

Your line leads go on the L1 and L2 terminals in the rear of the motor. It will not matter which wire is on which terminal as long as you seperate them with only one wire on either terminal.

it does sound like overheating. runs for a while, trips the high limit, then cools and restarts. this could be a supply power problem, under sized wiring, or loose or damaged terminals associated with the wiring.
