There is a tool that comes with the spa, instructions are in the owners manual. If you don't have the manual you can download it here
If you don't have the tool you can order one from Dream Maker.

SOURCE: Dream Maker spa - does my dream maker spa 4 person

Depending upon the age, the Dream Maker has a digital thermostat which is easy to change but to be honest I don't think that is the cause of your problem.

Check the keypad connection on the PCB (circuit board).

t could be either the keypad or PCB at fault and withou trying one or the other you'll not be able to determine the problem. My advise would be for you to contact your local parts supplier and ask them whether or not they can supply you a keypad to try with the option to send it back for a refund if it doesn't cure the problem.

A keypad can be trial fitted to the PCB, just unplug the old one, plug the new one in and turn on the power. There's no need to install the keypad to the spa, therefore you wont damage it in anyway.

If the keypad doesn't cure the problem, change the PCB.

EC stands for Economy. Change the mode until you reach ST and then it will stop flashing and function as normal.

Economy mode only allows the heater to function when the hot tub is on its filtration cycle.

My Dream maker Odyssey spa is stuck on economy mode. There is no way for me to see to change it to standard mode.

Try pressing 'TEMP' then 'LIGHT'. You may have to do this a couple of times.

If you don't have a 'TEMP' button, either the temperature up or down will also work.

There are three modes, ECONOMY (EC / ECO / ECON), SLEEP (SL / SLP) and STANDARD (ST / STD). For everyday use keep it on STANDARD mode.

If hot tub is in sl mode. How do I change it so temperature goes up

Hi, this sounds like a Balboa pack and topside control. press the temperature button along with the light button. This should put you into the filtration mode selection. Then toggle using the temperature control buttons until you find your mode ST for standard and EC for Economy or SL for sleep. You can find more information here.

I have the big ez spa I cannot get the SL setting to change and stay on anyother setting.

Hi as you know you are in the Sleep mode of your pump and filter settings. To change the setting to a different setting you must click on the temperature button followed by the light button. This will put you in the filter selection mode once there use the temperature buttons to toggle between the options. For more information you can look to this link.

EC keeps showing on my temperature screen can not find anything in the instructions. Help

Means "Economy"

You probably have a Balboa Control System.
Find the "Code" number on the label of the unit and do a Google Search. Find how to switch between Economy and Standard.
I recommend that spas be on Standard.

But if the spa is hot and is not giving you any problems, and the only irritant you have is not knowing what EC means, you can leave it alone, since you now Know.

Good Luck

What does Ec mean

EC on a Hot tub shows that it is in "Economy mode" meaning the spa will only heat during a filter cycle. Not a setting to be in if you live in "cold country" (you risk having the equipment freezing up)

SL display came on. Not heating.

If the SLP or SL Message is Alternating with the Water Temperature on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Sleep Heating Mode.

If the SLP or SL Message is ON Solid (Not Flashing) on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Sleep Heating Mode, but there is No current water temperature because the Spa is between Filter Cycles.

Hope this helps.

What does ec mean on my hot tub

EC stands for Economy mode. This is a setting that tells the computer to check the temperature of the spa less frquently, as well as running fewer filter cycles. Spas should be set to EC while you are away on vacation or not planning to use it for a while

Tub is not heating to temperature and flashing a Ec message on the temperature screen.

the Ec message is reffering to the mode the tub is set for. Ec stands for Economy mode. In Economy mode the heater will only come on during the filter cycle you have programmed. It will take a while for the tub to actually heat up in this mode. Change the mode to St mode which stands for Standard mode. Your manual should explain how to do this. usually you hit the temp button then the light button to change from mode to mode. Once the St is in the read out window don't touch anything and it will except the programmmed entry automatically. In the Standard mode the tub will keep heating until the set temperature is reached. then it will come on every half hr or so to check that the temperature is maintained.
