In the economy mode it will only maintain a temperature so that it will not freeze. Economy mode is mostly for vacation time or for winter if you are not going to be using the hot tub for an extended period of time.
Put it into the standard mode and you will be able to have a HOT tub and will function as it should

My Dream maker Odyssey spa is stuck on economy mode. There is no way for me to see to change it to standard mode.

Try pressing 'TEMP' then 'LIGHT'. You may have to do this a couple of times.

If you don't have a 'TEMP' button, either the temperature up or down will also work.

There are three modes, ECONOMY (EC / ECO / ECON), SLEEP (SL / SLP) and STANDARD (ST / STD). For everyday use keep it on STANDARD mode.

I have a spaform hot tub which is flasing Lf Ecny what does this mean

the fault is "low flow" and its in economy mode , this is a minimal mode that is without heat , just recirculates water to prevent a freeze up

you'll need to investigate the cause of low flow alarm , start with the filter , clean/replace it

My readout says econ and is not so warm have my kids wrecked it

ECON is a different mode of operation. In this mode it only looks at the temperature of the spa once a day. You need to look at your manual and use the topside control to change from ECON to NORMAL operation.

Qca Spa pumps and blower will not come on, water down to 35º f


You need to contact a hot tub technician/engineer as you clearly have issues.

'ICE' means that the water temperature is too low and therefore the pumps will be turned on to prevent freezing within the plumbing. Depending upon the spec and settings, the heater maybe disabled during 'ICE' condition.

'ECON' is Economy Mode. If you have a mode button, keep pressing it until you see 'Stan' on the display. This will put the system back into the standard mode.

'FLO' 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.

'COOL' is displaying because the set temperature is much higher than the current water temperature.

As I mentioned at the start, you really should get someone to take a look at your hot tub. You may have a few issues that need resolving.

I have a paradise spa the readout keeps saying econ what does this mean also Im having a hard time getting it to stay at 104 degrees

The econ sounds like a maintance mode that is to say economey mode. You probally have a simple way to set this back to a use mode but you will need to look this up in your book or find someone fimaller with this spa. Most books can be found on line if you look it up by brand and model number. Good luck.
