Question about Balboa Instruments Duplex Digital Panel 2 Pump

2 Answers

I have a Keys hot tub with a Balboa control panel (PN- 53794). When I turned the hot tub on after sitting for 2 years, I heard a pop and saw a flame shoot out the back of the pump motor. I took the motor in and was told the windings were shot and the motor should be replaced. I installed the new motor and it does not work. I have power going to the black, red and white wires (low, hi and neutral) at the motor and at the control board when i disconnect the harness. I am assuming that something went bad in the board when the motor blew. What can be the cause? can it be repaired instead of replacing the expensive board? Thanks, Dan

Hi,
Is the motor wired for 220v or 110v ??? You may have 110 to the motor, but if it is a 220 motor it still will not run and the 110 of the one leg will still feed back through the motor...
Check the voltage that is supposed to be coming out of the board and that the motor is wired for the correct voltage...
Also check that the fuse on the board did not blow...
most boards have a fuse on the board that will blow is a situation like that...

    instability occurs when the power is not the desired thing can often cause damage to components on circuit boards. certainly the cost of converting to a new circuit board will require a lot of capital depends on market prices, things like this can be reduced if you simply change components such as capacitors on the circuit board or any components of the impact of performing on the circuit . but usually this is done by the party providing such services, or someone who specializes in electronic circuits work. If you decide to repair your hardware, I suggest you identify the service providers that can meet your needs as your cost.

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.

Balboa hot tub.. how to turn up the HEAT / TEMP , no owners manual, and does anyone know where I can get one?


You do not have a Balboa Hot Tub. That is the company that made the control panel for it. Id venture to guess it's either a Hawkeye, Barefoot or Master spa if it came with no owners manual. To turn up the heat simply press the Red "up" arrow on the digital control pad. Check out the link below. It's a quick reference guide to what I'm guessing is your top side control.

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.

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.
