Question about Pool & Spa

Open Question

I have a balboa instruments spa hot tub model number DU-H276-DCAH. There are three wires coming from pump number one into the circut board. One of the wires that should be connected to a metal plate on the circut board is instead spliced into two wires. One goes to ground, and the other goes into the transformer. This is preventing pump number one from getting power

SOURCE: how to turn on hot tub

Check at the plug in if it has a normal plug like in your home first. Should be a set of buttons there, called a GFI. One is test, and the other reset.Push reset to see if spa comes on. Most spas dont have an actual on button. Check breaker box for popped breaker also, maybe tub is having problems, and needs a service call. Also larger tubs ussually jave a gfi or fuse box outside, close to tub. Kirk

John what you have is a 240 volt motor on that pump. It will not connect to a 120 volt cord. You'll have to get a different pump.

check to see that the flow switch is working properly, it may not have enough flow on low speed to allow the heater to turn on. Make sure your filter/s is/are clean. If you have a pressure switch instead of a flow switch, it may need to be adjusted or replaced.

SOURCE: this is an old hot tub qca jewel spa that runs all the time

your ozonator may have condensation water in it, try unplugging it and using a hairdryer to dry it out, otherwise you will need a replacement ozonator (i know where to get these at dealer cost if you need one). When replacing ozonator, make sure you request the correct plug type depending on if you have the white plugs or gray plugs that plug into either the side of your spa pack or the circuit board.
Good job on isolating the problem by unplugging each component when a circuit breaker trips. Next, your filter cycle is most likely set on constant filtration, you will need to reset it to 2-4 hours per 12 hour cycle. Don't put it in standby, leave it run in standard mode. Hope this helps,

Jacuzzi hot tub, Water is too hot. Heats until it trips the system. I have replaced the analog temperature control,


1) Safety question first
Why hasn't the GFCI tripped.
If your spa is not protected by ground fault., then you are at serious personal risk.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-GFCI.html#arc-fault

2) Replace the element.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-element.html

3) If element is cracked, it can continue heating to ground wire, causing runaway heating.
This applies to spas, and water heaters of all type.

I have a Jacuzzi circa 1998 model Z140 spa. The 50 amp gfi breaker is continually trippinhg. The electronic control box is a Balboa instruments MODEL, DU-H276-DCAH. A relay on the circuit board chatters...


Hello - sounds like you will need to replace the relay itself if possible, if not you most likely need to replace the circuit board considering its age.You can check by diconnecting the power to the board.
If you are not an electrition and you dont work with electrical STOP NOW!! and call electrition.
Following steps would be 1. Turn off breaker. 2.Disconnect wiring to the board. 3.Wire nutt off electrical to the board.
4. Turn breaker back on. If breaker does not trip , board will need repaired or replaced.

I just bought a used balboa hot tub and have no expertise. Does the pump kick in automatically even when you turn it off it will turn back on instantly? Is that normal? If it is not normal what could be...


This does not sound normal, but in order to better diagnose this I need to know exactly what model of controls your spa has. This is easily found on a label on top of the control box in the spa cabinet. If the label is missing, then remove the control box cover and look at the inside of the cover for the schematic, should be a model number on it.

Need a users manual


Kathy,

I think what you're looking at are the part numbers for the heater and control systems used in some Jacuzzi hot tubs rather than the Jacuzzi model number. I ran into the same issue and discovered through some cross-referencing on the web (jacuzzi parts suppliers) that this is the part number control unit made by Balboa. Odds are they were used in multiple Jacuzzi models.

My suggestion: Look here http://clearcreekspas.com/model_id.html to identify the control panel for your Jacuzzi and then follow the link to the correct manual. Some cover multiple models so you will need to know the electrical requirements of yours (120 V or 240 V?) and then check the layout of each tub shell to determine which model is yours.

I figured out mine is a Jacuzzi Essence Model 350 this way.

Good luck!
