Question about Dream Maker Spas Dream Maker Ez Spa Hot Tub

1 Answer

I have a fantasy dreammaker spa that plugs into a regular 120v outlet. At times the spa will run properly for weeks. Then it will constantly trip the switch on the spas plug. When I reset and test it works fine and starts back up. Sometimes it will run for a weak. Currently it is running for 1 to 3 minutes then shuts off. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.

    I have recently solved the problem...I ran the tub with the top side controller unplugged from the main board and no more nuisance trips...ordered a new top side controller installed it and the spa is running like the day it was new.

This is a GFCI and will trip at the least bit of water at the plug or at the wiring inside the spa controls. Just go through the system and make sure all is dry. Use a hair dryer in the outlet and on the controls and wiring. If you still have problems you may need to call an electrician.

How to I increase the temperature to 101 on the drreammaker spa fantasy model?


This may be a little late as you may have already found the answer. But most "Fantasy" spas have "Balboa" control system. They are either a heat control knob, or Up/Down arrows on the spa side control system.
If you have the know & it is all the way turned to max position, and still not hot enough, then you may well have a faulty "Temperature Sensor". Get a replacement from your local DreamMaker dealership. Easy to replace.

Topside control issues


Topside control is in "Locked" mode.
If you accidentally locked your control

Hold temperature UP & DOWN together for 6 seconds.
or
Balboa 7 button controls, both buttons to the left of the display screen & down temperature.
or
One of the buttons might be stuck in the down position

If these do not help let us know your control make and model & we'll see what we can do to find out more for you.

My dreammaker X400 just stopped working no power. The outlet that its plugged into works fine. What could be the problem?


check to GFI on the cord where it plugs in, check for any pop-out breakers at the spa pack. If you cannot find something simple, you may have a problem with the heater or other components.

Breaker on the end of spa plug-in trips overnight. I can unplug it and plug back in, tub runs to it's 100 degree default settings. Will stay on and maintain all day, but overnight I will find the tub off...


I have had a few troublesome units over the year that did as you describe due to 'dew' overnight collecting around the tub and the increased moiture sent the motor of the circ pump "over the edge" iinto a grounded state. A leaking pump seal was adding to the problem. Once the seal leak along with the dew got high enough the GFI would sense the grounded condition and trip. Fixing the pump seal and drying/cleaning the motor fixed the problem every time. If you find any other leak sources around the pump you will need to fix them as well.

My hot tub keeps tripping the breaker and will only stay on for a short period of time before tripping the breaker. What can I do?


Check for a water leak in the electrical areas of your spa... specifically look closely around the heater terminals, look for wet and corroded connections... If this spa is wired to a plug-in outlet, look at the GFCI plug assembly as well... You can also try disconnecting the blower, pump, heater, etc, from the control pack (one at a time) to determine which item is causing the tripping.

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.

New set up


Do you have power at outlet? If yes, check for 120v at control pack (follow cord to terminal board ). If no power at terminals and gfci on cord won't reset then power cord is defective. Replace

Ground Fault circuit Breaker trips each time a load is applied


The most likely causes in their order of probability are: 1) water somewhere in the circuit causing the hot wire to ground; 2) a legitimate trip caused by a defect in a device plugged into the circuit; and 3) a defective GFCI breaker. In the first case, wait until it has been dry for about a week and see if it trips. In the second case, make sure there is nothing plugged into the circuit and try resetting. In the third case go ahead and put the regular breaker in, then put a GFCI outlet into the first box downstream from the breaker. If installed according to the directions, that outlet should protect all of the outlets downstream.
