    cheers JavaMan .. u were correct in the manner that there was an obstuction in the line .. that was my angle once u mentioned it so i blew the hose thru some of the jets and back thru at the bottom where u open the valve to release the water when emptying .. left it for 5 mins , went back and it ran as per usual and is pumping and heating as normal .. hope it has solved the problem for good but not convinced at this stage ! so thanks for ur ideas , wouldn't have thought/tried that till u mentioned it :) very clever chap ... take care and cheers once again , Wazza .

I don't have that exact controller, but when my spa controller did that the trouble was "low flow through the pump"
This can be caused by a pump that's failed (airlocked or just stuck and unable to pump water) or by dirty filters, or by pinched water lines.

Check for a power reset button on the pump, and clean filters if your unit has filters.

    When it fires up for a sec, does water flow at the normal rate?

    At this point I'm thinking one of two things:
    #1: water is flowing at the full rate, but the water flow sensor is failing or failed, so it *thinks* that water isn't flowing. In this case, the flow sensor or the wires to the flow sensor are the problem.
    #2: water is NOT flowing at full rate, in which case the problem is something blocking the flow or a failing pump. In this case the first thing is to check and clean filters (which you've already done) and then check for obstructions in the lines. If the lines are clear, then it's a matter of troubleshooting the pump.

    Sorry -- you specifically asked about an air lock and I forgot to address that.

    If it's an air lock, then the pump won't move any water at all. It sounds like it runs a few seconds when you first power up, so it does NOT sound like an airlocked pump.
