It may be a bad temperature sensor or a bad heating element. Sounds more like a heating element. The cool should just be a warning or depending on the model, could mean that it thinks the water is too hot and is in "cool" mode trying to cool the water. Have the temp sensor and the heating element checked.

Tub won't heat Message SL


Not much info here but SL could be the mode setting. Typically modes are SLEEP, ECONOMY and STANDARD. Standard maintains your set temp at all times even if it has to turn on outside of normal filtration cycle. Economy only heats during a filtration cycle, and sleep will only heat within 10 degrees of set temp and only in filtration cycle. This cycle is really only useful while going on vacation or other extended periods of non-use. Not sure how to help change modes without knowing what spa pack you have but you should be able to find the owners manual on line with a little research.

My spa is at 89 and its set for 104 and the pump will not cut on what is the problem


You may be in economy mode. Economy only heats the water during a programmed filter cycle. You want it to be in standard mode which turns on the hot tub once the water is 2 degrees below the desired temperature. There should be a mode or program button on your topside. One some systems you'll have to hit prog/mode button then the temp up button to change the mode. There is also a sleep mode. Never used it not sure what it's for.

My Balboa 300F hot tub will not heat up. I am not able to get it out of economy mode. What can I do?


First, balboa does not manufacture hot tubs! They make control systems for hot tubs. If you are no longer able to switch between modes, then your topside control panel buttons are dead or falling. But... Even if you are still in economy mode, spa should still heat up. Once a demand for heat is recognized, you have a "Heat Call" and heater should come on. Is the "heat on" light, illuminated? If so, water should be heating, if not heater element may be bad? A multi meter would be good here: is there proper voltage at terminals on circuit board to heater? If so, bad element! If no voltage, then heater is not necessarily bad, probably just fine, I would then look at sensors? Good luck

A downeast hot tub water is only 78 degrees turn up to 100 doesn't never get warmer and shows a ECn code


Check your filter cycles and switch spa into Standard Mode as you have it in Economy. (In Economy mode it will only heat during the filter cycles).
If the Ecn or Ec Message is Alternating with the Water Temperature on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Economy Heating Mode.

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

Ecn or Ec is Alternating with Temp:
The Spa is Operating in the "Economy" (Ecn or Ec) Heating Mode.

The Water Temperature is Sampled Only during Programmed Filter Cycles. The Heater will Only operate and Heat up to Set Temperature during the Filter Cycles. The Water Temperature will probably drop Below Set Temperature between Filter Cycles. Other Heating Modes are Standard, Standard in Economy, and Sleep Modes.

Ecn or Ec is ON Solid (Not Flashing):
The Current Water Temperature is "Unknown" (- - - or - -) while in Economy or Sleep Mode.

Between Filter Cycles, while in the Economy or Sleep Heating Modes, the Pump has not turned ON and the Last Water Temperature is not Current. To read the Current Water Temperature, either Change to Standard Heating Mode or turn On the Heating Related Pump, and wait at least 2 Minutes.

In econ mode my 1998 spaform hot tub does not appear to heat but it is ok in standard mode.


in the economy mode it will only maintain a temperature so that it will not freeze. Economy mode is mostly for vacation time or for winter if you are not going to be using the hot tub for an extended period of time.
Put it into the standard mode and you will be able to have a HOT tub and will function as it should

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.
