Hi there, I have a Canada spa Vancouver. The temp reading is approximately 18 degrees C below what it should be - which means the tub is overheating and cutting out. Sensor issue or the electric sys?

SOURCE: Sta Rite Sr333na Max E Therm Pool & Spa Heater gauge stuck?

Anytime the heater is reading the water temp to be above what it actually is, especially 126, the problem is the Thermistor, or Temp Sensor, for the heater. This is a very easy part to replace. The Thermistor is located on the manifold, on the left side, between the top two bolts.

Sorry this is a late response! Hope that it helps!

Check the temp reading on the heater. It is probably set at 91...heater control should be set to 104

SOURCE: Water Temprature read 126 on heater and will not Fire

This is a problem with your thermister (heat sensor) You will find this on the left side of the water manifold about half way down. I'm not sure but I think it is a small tube that slides into the manifold and if you follow the wires back to the board it just plugs in. The part is reasonable priced for a heater part and very easy to install. Good luck.

Spa was below temp, now it heats and won't shut off.


Is your spa overheating, heating up past 104 degrees?
If so, you have a contactor (or relay) stuck shut and the spa should go into OH at 108 degrees.
d
If your hot tub is only heating to 104 or what ever temp you have it set at and the motor runs 24 hours a day there are a couple of things you'll want to check.
First, make sure that you do not have the pump set to run 24 hours a day.
Second, you'll want to see if the pump icon is lit up on the control panel. You will want to check to see if the icon is on while the spa is supposed to be resting. During filter cycles the icon will be lit. If you are not in a filter cycle and the pump is on while the icon light is off, you have a stuck contactor (relay). The relays can be found online for less then a couple of dollars.
If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

Rheem 206 propane heater will not fire has code #sns what is the problem? the water is 65 degree.


SNS means the temp sensor is out of acceptable range. Could be the following:

1. Water temp is below 36 degrees F
2. The sensor contains 2 thermistors, if they are more than 2 degrees apart and SNS failure will occur
3.Loose or corroded connection at P1 on the main board
4. If the sensor has come out of the JACO fitting on the header, it may read a SNS failure.

Solution, visually inspect the connections for corrosion. If it looks ok, then replace the temp sensor.

I have a Dream Maker Eclipse spa. We just had the pump replaced, but the tub is getting TOO hot that we cannot even get in it. We opened the housing and see 2 metal heat sensors but they are not attached...


The readout may be getting it's temperature from one of those sensors that are hanging in mid-air, not surprisingly low. Both sensors have to be somewhere that they can read some water temp. One of them probably goes into the piping before the heater so it can tell actual water temperature. The other MAY go in piping after the heater in the event of high water temp, it will shut the heater off. Look for a schematic in and around the spa.

I just installed my new X400 Dreamaker Spa. I filled it with water (although cold) and it has been warming up for approx. 18 hours and is only at 80 degrees? Is this normal? How long should it take to...


This is normal with the dream maker spa. The dream maker spas are poorly insulated, and only run 120 volts with a very small heater.
When the unit is first filled, the hot tub will not heat full time either. Most new hot tubs will have freeze protection below 50 degrees F. They will recirculate automatically using the friction and the pumps heat to warm the water above 50 degrees, and then the heating unit will kick on. These hot tubs do not heat while the jets are on high either, so once you are in it using the jets on high, the temperature will start to fall.

Now that you are up to 80 degrees, it should heat up fairly quick however.

Reads OH but still cold


you either have a bad temperature sensor (check the wires for damage) or a bad circuit board. I would recommend replacing the temp sensor first. If that doesn't work, pull the board and take it and have it tested.

QCA Opal hot tub display reading OH.


The tub experienced an overheat situation. This may be due to leaving the t stat turned all the way up and not monitoring or the hi-limit sensor is defective. The hi-limit sensor will shut down the heating cicuit if temp gets above 105 D optimally.the fact that the heater light is on is a good sign that things are working at this point.Whether or not a suitable temp(100-103 D) will be arrived at is to be seen. If spa heat kicks off before set temp is reached then replace hi-limit sensor.
