If you don't have any error codes, FLO, FLC, then there is a chance your heater has burnt out. You would need an Ohm meter to measure if you have continuity thru the heater element. You should read 11 to 12 ohms. If you have either FLO or FLC on the display this indicates a problem with the pressure switch. The pressure switch is threaded into the side of the heater, the stainless steel tube attached to the #1 or main pump. Its a round module with two wires attached to it. There is an adjusting post in the center of the module. For an FLO code turn the post half a turn CCW. For an FLC code turn it half a turn CW. If this does not solve the problem replace the pressure switch.

Just filled my dream maker brand new has been filled for a couple of hours but all the temp says is ice do you know what that means


This spa is heated by waste heat from the pump. The manual says it can take up to 20 hours to get to 100F. I assume that is starting from 60F. Keep the cover on and let it run at least a day and you should have 100F+ water temperature.

I just installed my new X400 Dreamaker Spa. I filled it with water (although cold) and it has been warming up for approx. 18 hours and is only at 80 degrees? Is this normal? How long should it take to...


This is normal with the dream maker spa. The dream maker spas are poorly insulated, and only run 120 volts with a very small heater.
When the unit is first filled, the hot tub will not heat full time either. Most new hot tubs will have freeze protection below 50 degrees F. They will recirculate automatically using the friction and the pumps heat to warm the water above 50 degrees, and then the heating unit will kick on. These hot tubs do not heat while the jets are on high either, so once you are in it using the jets on high, the temperature will start to fall.

Now that you are up to 80 degrees, it should heat up fairly quick however.

I have a Teledyne Laars spa heater XE Electronic, ES 125 ; Question, The spa and heater was drained and cleaned about two years ago, I want to get running again, But before I fill the 500 gallon spa , Is...


Locate the pressure switch within the safety circuit and jump the two wires that are connected to it. Be sure the power is off when doing so. Then you can power up the unit and it should fire assuming all the remaining safety circuit switches are closed. DO NOT RUN this for more than a few moments as you can damage the heat exchanger rather quickly operating the burners without water flowing thru the heater.

I have a artic spa 2003 ,and is flashes a flo coded ,what could i do to fix this problem,im so fustraded with this thing.pumps work ,jets come on but no heat .


A "FLO (w)" indicator means that there is insufficient water flow to trip the pressure switch and allow the heater to come on. Trouble Shooting: Remove the filters and run the spa. If the indicator goes away the filters are clogged, bad. Locate the pressure switch normally threaded into the heater tube. There should be two wires attached. Remove the wires and connect them together to complete the circuit. If the indicator goes away the pressure switch is bad or requires adjustment. Replace / adjust the switch and reconnect the wires. Do not run the spa permanently without it.

Our artic spa hot-tub is showing HL in the panel and is not heating up as it should. Everything else seems fine. Why?


HL is normally a "high limit" fault. If your filter is clean and you have sufficient flow, you may have a faulty high limit sensor. It should be mounted on the heater itself. The high limit sensor shuts the heater off if it senses excessively hot water. Check to see that you have sufficient flow, clean the filter, and make sure the filter pump is running. If everything else is running properly, you may have to replace the high limit sensor.

If the battery was dead for more that 36 hours, or if you had the battery out of the car for more than 36 hours, you will have to have it towed to a dealer and have the ECU anti-theaft system reset. It may be less than 36 hours. Maybe it's 12 hours. Something like that. Call the dealer and ask about it. They'll be gald to fill you in.

GE ARTIC PROFILE REFRIGERATOR....INTERMITTENT HEATING


Sarct, the question is, was the freezer side ok, if it was, I would suspect the damper not opening. If the freezer side was warm too, then I would suspect the evaporator thermistor not sending the signal to the board to terminate the defrost. Have the tech first check the continuity at connector J3. He should have 400ohms at J3-1 to J3-2 and the same at J3-3 to j3-4. If he doesn't get those readings have him check at the damper motor itself. If he doesn't have it there, replace the damper motor. If the damper motor passes all the checks then it's on to the evaporator thermistor. Have him check the resistance. At 5 degrees it should ohm at approx 36K ohms. The evap thermostat is redundant to the defrost operation. It's there as a back up in the event the evap thermistor fails to terminate the defrost. It's normally closed and will open at 140 degrees.
