Question about NRS Digital Spa / Hot Tub Controls

1 Answer

Hot tub tries to start up and kicks off

I have a Balboa control panel that I opened up and tested all the fuses and of course checked for proper voltage. The pump will kick on for 2 seconds and cut off. The pump will reset itself and show Pr for priming and my owners manual says to push pump button when this happens and it cuts on for a second and shuts off. Please help!

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

With your meter check to see if the motor is still getting voltage when it kicks off. If it is the motor needs servicing. If not, look for which component (such as the relay) is dropping line voltage and replace it.

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

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?

Do I have the correct controller for my Hot Tub? I have a Jacuzzi Lexus L.C. with a Balboa F1089R1A processor. I ordered a topside control panel online and received a Balboa VL701S but nothing is working...


Curios, why did you order another control panel? I need some history, when it worked, how it failed, any other information like if it was moved or rewired for power...etc.

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.

Hot tub wont come on


What do you mean "Jump it"?
Check with a meter, ACROSS both hot wires to get a reading of 220-240 volts. do not test across 1 hot and the meter lead on ground! You probably are not getting proper voltage to the hot tub. Or you may have a burned system fuse normally 20-25-or 30 amp fuse, which is found within the control box of the spa.

We recently purchased a Balboa hot tub from our neighbour. It is one year old. It was running fine for the first week or so but now we notice that once the jets kick off the pump is running constantly. ...


This is probably just a programing issue. You should see if your neighbors still have a book for the tub. If not you can probably get one on line. You will need to try Balboa with the year and model #. You will also need to check your control box in case it comes from another manufacture. Make sure that you use all the numbers and dates on the box as they can change things a couple of times. Mine is a five year old sundance and for the model I have they had three books for that year and two styles for one and two motor models.
When you get one go to how to clear memory then start from scratch. It may seem like a pain now but when you get hot bubbles at the push of a button you forget all the trouble.

Marquis Hot Tub, Instrument Panels (Balboa Instruments main and side auxillary) do not display the LED read out. Replaced main control panel twice, replaced 250 W. 3/10 fuse.


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.

Regards,
Ian.
