SOURCE: Not enough water

Be aware that you should remove dishwasher's power cable before touching wires or making resistance measuring !!! Check that the inlet valve get power. In case it does and no water entering the tub, check with multi-meter for solenoid's resistance (disconnect first the wires to it),if no measurement result, you should replace the valve. In case you have a measurement result, remove the solenoid from the valve and check that it's clean from any dirt. In case there is no power to the inlet valve - check that the float switch works. This is usually a small switch attached to a float. The float (usually a cylindrical) located inside the dishwasher at the bottom. As the water level rises, the float rises too. When it reaches the certain height, the float activates its switch, which cuts the electricity to the water inlet valve. If the switch is defective (stuck in the disconnected position)it will prevent power from the inlet valve. The switch is an On/Off switch and you can check it easily by a multi-metr. Good luck !!

SOURCE: jacuzzi whirlpool hot tub, flashes Fl-1 has new filters,

Sounds like a bad heating element. This is located in a stainless steel tube under or around the main control box behind the cover around the tub. It is not hard to replace but should be done by a pro. The part is avaliable online.

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.

SOURCE: Error code reads

'Sn' is a general error message relating to the temperature sensors.

Assuming that you have a Balboa spa pack (M7 version), turn off the power and remove the spa pack cover, you'll find two temperature sensors mounted in the top of the heater tube one at each end. Follow the wiring from the sensor to the plug(s) on the PCB and check that the connections are good, they have a habit of devekoping a poor connection.

If you have a multimeter you could also check the resistance of the two sensors. They should both be the same. If they aren't the same you'll probably have to replace them.

One final thing just to check... Ensure that there are no blockages within the heater. Unless you have service/gate valves you will have to drain the hot tub, unscrew the unions and check inside the heater for debris within the heater assembly.

If you're from the UK I may be able to help regarding parts etc.

Kind Regards,
Ian.

SOURCE: the heater isn't heating the

PRS means that the heater is not sensing pressure in the plumbing.
Make sure that the pump basket is clean.
Make sure pump is flowing freely as it should (no blocked skimmers or returns)
Make sure filter pressure is where it should be. If this is a cartridge filter, remove and clean the cartridges. If its a sand filter or a DE filter just do a long backwash.
Make sure any heater bypasses are closed.

If you know the water is flowing freely, and you still see this code, you must replace the pressure switch. It should cost about $35 for the part at a retail store. It is located on the top side panel opposite of the water connections. It looks like a round disk screwed into the header, with two wires coming from it. Just unscrew the old part, and using teflon tape, screw in the new part.
Connect wires, and restart the heater. It does not matter in which place you put the wires.

No power, great lakes hot tub hear click like breaker tripping,down below in hot tub could it have bad internal fuses?


Charles, sorry I just re-read your question. The click you hear is likely a contactor if its an older model, and if it clicks its probably not the problem, just means its getting voltage. I would start by looking at the high limit switch. Look for a little reset button. A high limit switch trips when it senses high temperature, often from heater trying to run with Inadequate water flow.

Drained my 2000 Great Lakes Spa now OH is displayed when I turn up the heat it kicks out the breaker..


OH is overheat due to insufficient water flow through the heater.
Common Causes:
  • Gate valves not opened/partially closed.
  • Air trapped in suction lines or pump
  • Blocked suction fitting
  • Dirty filter
  • Restricted water discharge lines

Try remove filter cartridge and run spa.
Check pressure switch for continuity.
Unplug & plug hi limit sensor.

Spa thermal overheating


Turn off all power to the hot tub as soon as you realize it is overheating. The spa should have an automatic shut off when the water temperature reaches about 112 degrees fahrenheit. Call your hot tub dealer or manufacturer for service options. There are a variety of conditions that could lead to the overheating of your hot tub, but may differ in various hot tub models and brands. Check the water level of the hot tub. Low water levels could be the culprit for the over heating, so you may just need to add more water to the hot tub.
Check the shut-off valves in the hot tub. If they are closed while the hot tub heater is on, it could cause the water to reach unsafe temperatures.
Clean the hot tub filter. A dirty filter could be blocking the flow of water, causing the water to sit in the hot tub and overheat.
Turn the power back on after finding the problem and talking to the hot tub dealer. The hot tub will probably not start back up until the water reaches a safe temperature

Hot tub heating is working but pump has stopped


you may have a system that uses a small circulating pump that circulates the water thru the heater to keep water temp at proper level (this is usually the case with hot springs spas and is because it is the most cost effective way to maintain constant water heat without using a full size pump or two speed pump just to push water past the heater core. therefore the issue is you have a problem with your jet pump and it has nothing to do with the circulating and heating portion of the spa. you can check to see if there are any reset buttons in or near the equipment as well as open enclosures to make sure everything is clean and dry also make use any contacts on spa skirting are secured propertly

FL code on a Great lakes spa I have turned of power twice code still there also the the water is warm


'Fl' means that there's insufficient flow of water through the heater, or non at all.

1) Check the water level - top up if low.
2) Ensure that all jets are open and flow water - if they don't you may have a pump issue.
3) Remove the filter(s) and see whether or not this clears the fault, if so clean or replace the filters.
