Question about Qca Spas Dream Series Dream Master Hot Tub with Flex Cover

Open Question

I just replaced my control panel on my great lakes hot tub and I seem to still not have power. The tub is empty currently. Do you have to have it filled in order for it to sense the water and cut on?

The tub experienced an overheat situation. This may be due to leaving the t stat turned all the way up and not monitoring or the hi-limit sensor is defective. The hi-limit sensor will shut down the heating cicuit if temp gets above 105 D optimally.the fact that the heater light is on is a good sign that things are working at this point.Whether or not a suitable temp(100-103 D) will be arrived at is to be seen. If spa heat kicks off before set temp is reached then replace hi-limit sensor.

SOURCE: no power to hot tub...

In all liklihood, your problem is a breakdown in the insulation of the heating element. The elements tend to be mineral insulated then metal jacketed. Once you get a bit of corrosion on the jacket and a little water gets into the mineral powder, it's insulation properties fall off sharply, shorting out the power supply.

There are two practical ways of testing this:

The pro way of doing it is to borrow a high voltage insulation tester, disconnect the power leads from the element and check the resistance between one of the elements terminals and the jacket. Treat anything less than a megohm as a failure requiring replacement of the element. (nb. This is one of those rare cases where you need to use a proper insulation tester - an ordinary multimeter often fails to find this problem)

The alternative is just to replace the element and see how much difference it makes.

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: Error code reads

'Sn' is a general error message relating to the temperature sensors.

Assuming that you have a Balboa spa pack (M7 version), turn off the power and remove the spa pack cover, you'll find two temperature sensors mounted in the top of the heater tube one at each end. Follow the wiring from the sensor to the plug(s) on the PCB and check that the connections are good, they have a habit of devekoping a poor connection.

If you have a multimeter you could also check the resistance of the two sensors. They should both be the same. If they aren't the same you'll probably have to replace them.

One final thing just to check... Ensure that there are no blockages within the heater. Unless you have service/gate valves you will have to drain the hot tub, unscrew the unions and check inside the heater for debris within the heater assembly.

If you're from the UK I may be able to help regarding parts etc.

Kind Regards,
Ian.

Great lakes balboa 2000 le wont change out of econo mode so doesnt heat up


Are there any error codes?
Is the control panel locked?
If no check your Hi Limit sensor, it is a thermal protection/overheat sensor which is the spas safety device. If that sensor is bad the spa will not operate/heat at all.

The topside control manuals are paired with the main Spa Pack control system. If you email me the model information off of your spa pack, I can help you to find your manual.

I have a 2004 great lakes hot tub with a balboa controler. My hot tub heats up fine when the pump runs on high but the temp light never comes on when the pump runs in low.
