Try tightening it just a little to see if it will move ...if it does then you should be able to loosen it. Be careful not to over do it but you should be fine ....if this doesn't work try spraying it with WD-40 and letting it sit for a bit then try to loosen it then. Let me know if this works.


Thx

The spa will not start - the pump is definitely connected to working power and the last time i tried it worked fine. However today when I push the on button nothing happens?


When you say nothing happens, I wonder if the unit is making any sound at all or do you mean there is no water flow? If there is no water flow in your hot tub or spa then it could be just a simple air lock. Often when you drain your hot tub or spa you have to prime the system afterwards, this includes the pump but may also include the suction lines. The suction lines can develop an airlock in the upper portions of the suction line. To remove an airlock you simply force water into the suction line or release the air in the line by opening a union. Hot Tub Repair 101 What is an E6 or Error 6 Code Mean

Additionally, you could need new hot tub filters. If the filters are dirty and water flow is restricted your power pak may shut itself down as well. This can be as simple as cleaning your filters or replacing them. Hot Tub Filters

Here are a few things to consider

  • release any air locks
  • clean filters
  • make sure there is no obstructions in the lines
  • check to make sure GFCI is operational
I hope this helps.

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

Some of the jets are not working how do we fix it


Assuming this spa is equipped with the single pump system and the rest of the jets are functioning as expected, you need to check to see if the jets that are not working are closed or shut off. Most jets can be opened and closed by gripping the outer ring of the jet face and rotating in either direction. If the jet has sand or gritty debris inside, the jet assembly may not turn easily and will likely need to be taken apart and cleaned. Most jets can be rotated counter-clockwise beyond a detent and pop out. Others require unscrewing completely or by releasing an internal latch to remove. If you need further assistance with this, feel free to contact us.

The jet could also be stopped up with debris, preventing the jet from working.

Taking it apart and cleaning it will likely resolve your non-operational issues.

I just bought my hot tub, it shows ''FLO'' on the panel when i turn it on. I did every thing they say on the panflet but it still doesn`t work. Anything else i should do??


The problem is that the flow switch for your water heater is indicating no flow. Therefore your water heater will not operate. Without proper water flow your heater will burn up. Check that your valves are open. Check that your pump is running. Check that your filters are properly installed and not restricting flow. Check the wiring to your flow switch and make sure the flow switch operating properly (i.e. put a ohm meter across the contacts and see if you have continuity when the switch closes).

How do you open the pomp?


Release the small yellow locking post (if it is present) by lifting it out of the hole. Once out of the way turn the large nut holding the motor portion in place counter clockwise. Use a wide chisel or scrapper and a mallet to free it if it is stuck. Tap lightly to avoid breaking the ring.

What does FL mean on my hot tub?? water doesnt circulate but is still sort of warm...


FL could be a code for low flow. If you have no circulation this sounds like it. If your pump runs and you have no flow you could have a problem with your pump. Or if you have the tub drained then it could be an air lock, if you open the drain valve till you get water out that should fix that. Also check to be sure the isolation valves are open under the spa. I hope this helps.

We have a dreammaker spa, how do we drain it? the model is Fantasy


The Fantasy has a drain located in the toekick of the spa. You have to first remove the drain cap, attach a hose if you wish, spin the outer black ring counter clockwise to start the water flow, then pull the outer ring out away from the tub to increase the drain to full flow.
I understand that a screw driver is often needed to pull the outer ring out to achieve full flow. Therefore, I suggest another method. Take a garden hose and place it in front of the jet while the spa jets are on. This will force water flow thru the hose and prime the hose. Once you see water running from the other end of the hose, drop the hose in front of the spa jet into the footwell and as long as the loose end is lower than the end in the footwell, a siphon will drain the spa as fast as the spa drain will. Remember to turn off electric to the spa once you have established a siphon. You may have to bucket the last bit of water in the footwell. Goodluck.
