SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Maax bathtub Palace model Error code C01 jets don't turn on.

first of all check the circuit breakers to be sure one or both aren't kicked. be sure to turn the breaker all the way off and then fully on as a tripped breaker is in a halfway off position. if that doesnt fix your problem remove the access panel to the mechanical space in your tub. there are generally one or two reset buttons in there which can also kick off and need to be reset.

SOURCE: Spa does not turn off.

There SHOULD be a valve that you can close to disable the spa.

After refiling a spa, typicall the water is below 50 degrees F. Spas have a freeze protection in their programming so that when the water is that cold, the pumps run constantly to keep it from freezing. It will correct itself

Yes, the jets will run anytime the heater is operational. This is neccessary to keep the plumbing from melting, and also to evenly distribute the heated water. Most hot tubs only take 4-5 hours to heat up, but the easy spa takes very long because they use a very small heating element. Usually only 1.5KW.

I have a qca jewel spa the heater only runs when one or both of the pumps are running ? Any suggestions thanks


I would assume this is by design. If water were not flowing through the heater it would constantly cycle and mineral deposit would accumulate on the heating elements much faster and shorten their lifespan.

How do you winterize a hot tub? QCA Jewel Model SUV M7


this is taken right from a jewel series QCA hot tub manual.....Winterizing
In very cold weather you may not want to venture outside to use your spa. In this case, you may move it to a heated area, or leave it as is until the weather warms. If you do leave the spa unused for a long period of time in severely cold weather, you should winterize the spa to avoid accidental freezing due to a power or equipment failure.. Follow these easy steps: Turn power to the spa OFF. Drain the spa. Use a wet vac to **** or blow out the air injectors, water jets and water suction fittings. Add 1-3 gallons of RV antifreeze, depending on the size of the spa, to all the air injectors, water jets, suction drains, and filter. Caution: Any lines not receiving adequate antifreeze are subject to freeze damage!

My hot tub was just refilled yesterday and now when the pump comes on the water level lowers. I don't see a leak anywhere


If you are just refilling your spa after having it empty for a time, your shaft seal on the pump motor has dried out and has shrunk making the seal leak. Soon it will drip water into the motor housing and the motor will seize. It is very easy to change a shaft seal. E-mail if you need help

We just bought a qca topaz hot tub from a person and we can't seem to get the jets to shut off. Any ideas?


reset the filter timer on the unit probably set at max since being powered up [replugged in ] 6hrs out of 12hrs every 12 hrs if u have manual will explain how to set temp and filter run time if no manual can notify company and they can advise --i believe on yours that if u hold down the light button for a few seconds it will flash a number and u can use up and down adjustment arrows to reset time usually set at 1

My jets on my topaz II won't shut off


maybe your filtration cycle is set to high.
check with your instruction manual on how to bring filtration cycle up and if showing FIL 8 or Fil C then this is the reason.
Is the spa up to temp? if not then spa is running all the time to try and heat.....
if not then may have a circuit board error or top side controller

QCA Dream Series, Mystic SPA. Drained, cleaned and re-filled. Following power restore (and 5 min or so prime cycle), the the pump runs continuously at low speed - it NEVER stops. Everything else works fine...

Panel reads HHO-----, no temperature display until activate jets, then shows a temperature drop sometimes down to 65 degrees ,then starts heating upwith jets going


"OH" is an overheat error. In normal function, it is used as a safety shut off if the spa water temperature reaches over 110 degrees in the event of a thermostat failure. But more commonly, (if the water temp hasn't gotten too hot) it indicates that the temp sensor(s) have failed. If you have a digital display on the topside controller of your spa, then it is a circuit board controlled spa pack. Most spa builders use the same control pack manufacturer - Balboa Watergroup. The sensor kit usually consists of 2 probes and wires that plug directly onto the circuit board. Depending on the spa, they could both be located onto the heater manifold, or one on the manifold and one mounted to the tub making direct contact with the water via a thru-wall sensor mount. If I knew the spa manufacturer, I could further assist you. If you replace the sensors, and encounter the same problem... then the circuit board is bad, and usually a costly replacement. The sensors are usually listed as a "BA sensor assy" Hope this helps you,
