SOURCE: When I change the temp. setting it keeps heating at original temp

The keypad appears to working correctly.

When you alter the set temperature via the keypad the display will flash the temperature thats to be acheived, once it stops flashing the keypad will revert back to the current temperature of the water.

Hope that helps,
Ian.

My Spa has a Balboa 500z Top side and control panel. It was running at 104 degrees and then one day it just shut down. The Circ pump won't start up at all and when I first turn on the power, I hear the...


Turn breaker power off. Verify now power to unit with volt meter. Most systems have in line over temp over current to protect circuit board and motor. Also the water level switch must be made to complete interlock condition. Check the heater coil for continuityas it may have opened. Check heater for continuity to each coil set. There is an interlock that is for diagnostics on start up that will prevent unit from starting. Look for any melted wires or components too. Always know and verify breaker settings. Verify your meter with known voltage reading first. Be safe my friend.

Balboa hot tub.. how to turn up the HEAT / TEMP , no owners manual, and does anyone know where I can get one?


You do not have a Balboa Hot Tub. That is the company that made the control panel for it. Id venture to guess it's either a Hawkeye, Barefoot or Master spa if it came with no owners manual. To turn up the heat simply press the Red "up" arrow on the digital control pad. Check out the link below. It's a quick reference guide to what I'm guessing is your top side control.

Hot tub stuck in 'SL' mode


Need to know what buttons your topside control has... depending on the model, some have a mode button which you press and release and then immediately press the temp up or down, to select SL for sleep (no heat), ST for standard (heat as needed) or EC for Economy (only heat during filtration). If the mode button is not present, and you have a single temp button and light button, try pressing and releasing temp and then immediately pressing light button, repeat until choice appears, then wait, it will hold last displayed mode.
