SOURCE: Motor is hooked up correctly according to

You have 220v running into your motor, the red and the plack are in most cases the same 110v line and what your calling a white netural is a common line. In other words the second half of your 220v line. If your red and black are the two opposing 110v lines that make up your 220v and they are put on the motor and turned on they short aginst each other and blow the breaker. One of your 220v lines should come into your hi -low switch and then split to your high and low on the pump. The other half of your 220v line will go to the common or what your calling nuteral. The difference is a netural completes a 110v circut and a common completes the 220v circut it will take to run the motor. One of the splits will complete the low speed circut and the other will complete the high speed circut. You need to check your voltage comming into the spa, the way the spa is wired (110v-220v), and how the motor is wired (110v-220v). For your spa this will be in your owners manuel or on a scematic inside a panel or door and is quite often a plug you change from one spot to another. On your motor will have a scematic on the back of the motor that will tell you haw to adjust the wireing already in place on the wire board of the motor. This may sound deep but if all your voltages are set the same and your high and low are the same leg of power, this should fix your problem.

check to see that the flow switch is working properly, it may not have enough flow on low speed to allow the heater to turn on. Make sure your filter/s is/are clean. If you have a pressure switch instead of a flow switch, it may need to be adjusted or replaced.

Hmm, that's an odd one. It could be either a fault with the PCB or the pump.

The first thing to check is the voltage to the twin speed pump. If that's ok the motor is probably the cause of the fault.

As always, with anything electrical you need to be very careful with what you're doing and if you're unsure seek professional help.

Regards,
Ian.

Contact Balboa's Customer support department directly at 800-645-3201, follow the prompts to customer tech support (or press 0 and ask for customer support). You will need to be at the spa, control panel open and ready to read off the chip number, and you will need to be proficient with a test meter (AC voltage). The SN error is related to a bad sensor(s), but can also indicate a failed board. An incorrect sensor set will also create this problem, so confirm you used the exact or compatible replacement. If the SN code issue is no longer a problem, but the spa is still not heating, look and see if the heater led is on. If it is, you likely have some burned relays on the board, which can be replaced cheaper than replacing the board. If you need more help, email me at info@coastsideservices.com

It sounds like you have the possibility of a couple of things going wrong here. It could easily be a board issue based upon what you are saying. However, it could also be a pump issue because you are having limited success with filing the tub up half way. The best suggestion is to have a spa technician come out to assist you in determining what exactly is going wrong here.

You really have not provided enough details on the problem to help you diagnose exactly what is going on here.

My pump will only work on speed 2, however ...it will only heat up on speed 1, so the hot tub is cold. Any idea??


Spas that are connected with the supply voltage of 120, will only heat on low speed.It is designed that way, so that when the motor switches to high-speed, heater will turn off, so that the current draw will not overload a common 15 a outlet.
by the description of your question, I would venture a guess, that the relay for low-speed, located on the circuitboard, has failed.
if I was the technician on site, doing a troubleshoot, I would want to know if the motor it's self is operational, on both speeds?
So I would bring in an alternate source of power, and test each speed individually, confirming whether or not low-speed actually does work?If it does not, then you know it is the low-speed side of the pump motor that has failed. But if low speed does work with alternate power, then you know it is in the controlling circuit.

Balboa 52502 val 5m7


have you cleaned your filter recently. Sound like there may be a low flow error in low speed
either that or the start capacitor on your pump is bad and the pump will not come on in low speed unless you first give it a boost in high speed
anytime you ask for heat with insufficient flow there will be an error message

Hot tub keeps running all night keeping me awake. How do you shut it off? It's a Great Lakes.


If the system is the Jacuzzi 52221-05 system mentioned in the subject header, there could be a stuck relay causing the problem and you might need to get a spa technician out to assist you in repairing the problem. However...

If it is a Great Lakes system as mentioned in your message body, then there could be a programming issue allowing the filter cycle to run continuously. Provide a model number off of the Balboa control. Then we can provide you an instruction manual or reference card to assist you in resolving this problem. you can also search our online manuals at our website. You can find them online at:

I have a 2004 great lakes hot tub with a balboa controler. My hot tub heats up fine when the pump runs on high but the temp light never comes on when the pump runs in low.


check to see that the flow switch is working properly, it may not have enough flow on low speed to allow the heater to turn on. Make sure your filter/s is/are clean. If you have a pressure switch instead of a flow switch, it may need to be adjusted or replaced.
