    Just had this with mine. It had just been rein flayed and E02was beeping as nothing had changed and new filter was in I gave the motor housing a gentle shake checking all the pipes were in line. Pressed on and hey presto away it went. Hope yours is as easy to fix

    I took the base cover off removed the pump & opened it up, there was loads of hair wrapped around impeller. reassembled all working fine now. As a separate tip a washing machine hose with a male to male adapter the other end in a bucket works in order to test rather than keep connecting then unconnecting to spa

    I've only been in mine tonight for first time and it's already giving me the code
    Surely it can't be blocked already ?

    Ive had the dreaded e02 code and sorted mine now ! Its says in manual that its a water flow problem. Mine was a blocked return filter. I noticed that what was happening was there was a restriction in water getting back into the tub after being through the pump|heater. With the tub full i unscrewed the top pipe to allow water to escape an an blob of paper slug came out. ( looks like from old filters ). When i get e02 code again i do them same and this resets the code. Hope this helps ! Peter finnigan

    Ive owned my coleman spa for 4 months now. I was getting the error code 1- 3 times a week, consistant with how many times I was in it per week. I found cleaning the filters fixed it until the next time I got in it and E02 code would come up again the next day. I put chlorine tabs in the floater as instructed but water PH level was aways too low (chlorine) and my skin would be itchy dry everytime.

    BEST WAY TO KEEP E02 CODE AWAY that I found was to add 1/4 cup liquid chlorine every 3 days which kept PH level at 2-3 with my ph testers AND the E02 error hasnt been back since. Its been over a month now.

    I DO NOT RECOMMEND taking pump housing off and messing with the sensor or youll mess it up for good ! !

    I had a similar problem where the water pressure had diminished. SOLUTION: with the spa full of water unscrew the top (return) pipe so water spills out then turn the pump on for a few seconds. This dislodges any blockage and is like new again.

If this is an outdoor spa near trees, its almost a guarantee that the impeller is blocked with debris (pine needles can cause this in a hurry)

If the impeller is clean of debris and this is still happening, replace you pressure/flow switch.

    So were you able to figure out how to fix it? and Trish was the pool still full of water and what hose pipe were you referring to to put into the pool?

    The mine house is licking water out of it and it is giving the code ever time I put it on the filters part but when I put it on the bubba is don't no more

  • Anonymous May 31, 2018

    hi guys have a coleman spa here and love it i have had the error for a long time too i found that if you drill holes in the plastic piece that squirts out the water after going through the pump it helps alot. The filters need cleaned aloooott to keep the error away but you can get away with about a week if you drill holes in output of the thing it lets all the gunk out better.

  • Anonymous Jun 19, 2018

    I have the same problem, i have opened it, checking the pump, putting it again, the tubes looks clean, I plug a tube sending water directly there and it came out perfectly. Indeed, I turn it on while the water was being pumped (not by the pump) and it didn't give me the error, so the sensors are ok, but when i plug it, the pump doesn't even try to work. It did once and since then, error EO2. The weird thing is that when I plug it, it does not even try to suck the water. I checked in internet for another pumps but i can't find much. Any advice? My only solution is to buy an external pump and use it.

5 f code after hearing poping noises filter and pump are new

SF (not 5F) = Temperature Sensor or Thermistor
HS = High Limit Sensor
Heaters Set Temperature out of Sync with actual Water Temperature.
Heaters Maximum Water Temperature has been Exceeded.
A few reasons this occurs...
  • Low water flow thru heater, check :
    • Dirty Filter
    • Opened By Pass Valves
    • Plugged pump impeller
    • Dirty/Full baskets at skimmer or pump
    • Anything that may reduce water flow
  • Sensor could actually be doing its job, in a different aspect, Thermostat failure, and water is overheating in spa or pool?
But anyway, your heaters fault code you asked about does not necessarily mean the sensor failed, but is only informing of a problem.

My jacuzzie starts and stops wen it is runing i have a fl code

FL is a flow error, you may not have enough water going over filter housing. Jets are they open?
is your heater fitted with a pressure switch? when on FL locate pressure switch wheel and turn all the way anti clockwise until it stops then slowly wind back until you hear a click reset in control box - you have reset pressure switch.
If you have done this and still show FL or heater is not fitted with pressure switch then your LOW speed on pump maybe faulty (new pump) or heater maybe scaled up with lime scale and reducing water flow through heater - remove scale from heater, flush through and increase ANTI-SCALE

FL code on a Great lakes spa I have turned of power twice code still there also the the water is warm

'Fl' means that there's insufficient flow of water through the heater, or non at all.

1) Check the water level - top up if low.
2) Ensure that all jets are open and flow water - if they don't you may have a pump issue.
3) Remove the filter(s) and see whether or not this clears the fault, if so clean or replace the filters.

I have a Jacuzzi spa that has a FL on the read out.

the FL code is usually an insufficient flow fault. you may have a dirty filter or a faulty flow switch/sensor.
