SOURCE: Unit will not turn on. Display is blank.

Power supply is the problem. If not under warrenty, open the cover and look for blown capacitors. If there are, try replacing those or have them replaced. Might solve your problem

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.

Regards,
Ian.

The topside controls aren't fused so the fuses wont be the cause.

It can only be either the PCB, the topside controls, or a bad connection at fault. Check that they are plugged in correctly, make sure that the PCB is configured correctly for your topside controls.

It's rare for both the main and auxilary topside controls to fail. You can try plugging in another main topside control without fully installing it... at least you can then return it (ask whether or not return are accepted, I don't personally accept any returns if parts are specially ordered) if it doesn't cure the problem.

SOURCE: We have a Great Lakes spa with a Balboa control

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

How do i get my spa out of sleep mode


It would help to know what spa you have, but the most common controls out there are manufactured by Balboa Instruments. If your top-side controls only have four buttons try pressing "temp" or "set" button followed by "light" button. Once there, pressing the "light" button usually cycles through the programming. On some models the "temp" button must be pressed to confirm the selection.

How do you turn a balboa spa on?


FYI...
Balboa does not make spas, just control systems.
but that is enough info to begin a troubleshoot process...
  • do you have anything displaying on topside control panel?
  • Fault codes?
  • When you say no power after connection to circuit what do you mean exactly?
  • Have you checked for burned system fuse?

I have a Balboa control board system (M2000 Programming and VL700S topside controller). I had to have the main board replaced recently because it blew up. Since then, the two speed pump is only one...


It sounds like it is 120/240 volt and that one of the lines is not working. Try turning off the breaker and turning it on again. You may have to use a tester to see where the fault is.

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.

No temperature display cant set temperature


Located behind the access panel there is a grey box that is the spa pack. Open that up with the 2 screws on the top of the pack. There is a small glass fuse on the circuit board. One of those fuses is most likely blown. If that is not the culprit you need a new topside control. More than likely it's the fuse.

Watch the panel as somone turns the power off and on and see if anything shows up like dashes. The only way to check a panel/ keypad is with a good one
