Why is hot tub over-heating past max temperature?

JACUZZI- QUANTUM PLUS Model# F160000 MFR# 9503-04 Serial# 577544 Problem: Control set on Standard Mode, hot tub overheats. Example- temperature set at 97degrees, temperature displayed and reached 110degrees. There are no problems in Economy Mode. What is the cause of this problem? I work at a hot tub retail store, but we are not an authorized Jacuzzi dealer.

SOURCE: Jacuzzi Hot Water Heating Capacity

Depending on how you heat the hot water, whether gas or electric, is a missing detail in your problem, but if it is electric then your problem is the size, being only 40 gal, and needing probably about that to fill the tub, will always lead to your current position.
If the hot water heater is gas, the chances of it keeping up are slightly better, but again things like the temperature of the water leaving the tank, any mixing valves, etc. will effect the water temp at your tub.  Before raising any temps, make sure you follow local code, as not to scald yourself or others.

The only product I know of which will do what you ask is an item called Plast-Aid Acrylic and PVC repair kit. Google it and you will find the website. It is about $20. and it works like a charm. good luck

SOURCE: Jacuzzi whirlpool, air on/off button on tub

If it is a air button that pushes in and comes back up, there is a good chance that the switch (which is mounted on the pump/motor) is bad. If the switch is a touch button on a key pad, the problem is in the control box for the pump/motor.

SOURCE: Faucet placement on Jacuzzi 6036

If there is room most definitely you can place the faucets on the tub itself. You can mount them on the left rear. However be very careful drilling the holes and make sure you have it aligned correctly before drilling. Check underneath to make sure there is enough room for clearance and hook up. Here is what it will look like. a1da3ad.png

SOURCE: what causes my jacuzzi hot tub to turn itself on.

sounds like you have an electronic system that operates the tub. Many times those get hit with a voltage spike and it burns up a relay on the circuit board and THAT is what make them come on at weird times.
You will most likely need a new control for your tub.

I have a Jacuzzi J340 Hot Tub. I am having trouble with the heating. When the pump is on, the water circulates just fine. once the heater kicks on, it runs for about 10 seconds, then clicks to OH, and...


make sure the heating element isnt touching the casing inside the heating tube. if its an indoor tub, make sure the filtration cycles are not set to constant. constant filter cycles on an indoor tub will generate residual heat from the circ pump running 24/7, causing tub to heat past 104 degrees

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.

My Oaisis II hot tub stays at 103 and now it's dropped down to 68 degrees for the past 3 days? Could there be a problem with my heater element? Or is there a sequence of resetting the temp buttons on top...


Information on the care of your product and troubleshooting is available here:

http://www.oasisleisure.ca/customer_care/SpaCare.html

Did you have a recent power outage? It is necessary to reset the temperature after a power outage.

Check the temperature setting on your hot tub; if it has defaulted do to a power outage reset to the desired temperature. If it is still set at your desired setting and is operating at 68 degrees then there is a problem that is preventing the tub from reaching the set temperature.

Some possible causes and actions are:

Pull filter (see if light comes on) / Replace filter
Knife valves not fully open / Open knife valves

Pressure switch cut of calibration / Adjust pressure switch
Faulty Pressure Switch / Replace pressure switch

Air leak, check pump suction line / Tighten pump union
Heating element corroded / Replace element

Faulty control panel / Replace panel

the last time I looked at heaters for jacuzzi tubs they are designed to keep the water at the temperature you filled the tub and not heat up the water from cold to hot.

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!
