The number one problem is air leaks.......check all connections to see that they are tight, and rubber seals. The intake side would give you trouble with air leaks. If you dont find any leaks then I would pull the pump cover and check the impellor. Pool stores have parts and lots of knowledge.

SOURCE: jacuzzi whirlpool hot tub, flashes Fl-1 has new filters,

Sounds like a bad heating element. This is located in a stainless steel tube under or around the main control box behind the cover around the tub. It is not hard to replace but should be done by a pro. The part is avaliable online.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Jacuzzi hot tub model J-300 series with an FL-1

A flashing “FL1” display means the flow switch is
malfunctioning open, the filter cartridge is excessively
dirty or an “air lock” condition has occurred at the
circulation pump intake.

SOURCE: FL code on a Kenmore Calypso top loader

The FL error code means:
Flood Condition:
FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

This problem I see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.

My jacuzzi is flashing FL1 and the heater isnt coming on


FL is a "flow" issue. Check the filter to make sure it is clean. Start by removing it from the tub and see if that solves the error. The next item to check is the gate valves to make sure they are open all the way. There are usually one on either side of the pump and control box.

My Essence Echo Spa jacuzzi is giving us an error "FL". Can you tell us why it is saying this and how we can fix it? Thanks!


FL stands for Flow. It is a diagnostic code that is indicating that either the the flow/pressure switch has failed, or the pump is not pumping enough water to operate the spa safely.
If it is the pump, you might try to lean out the impeller housing as its common to see a pine needle or other such blockage affecting the pump.
If its the switch, just buy another generic switch and swap it out. It would only take a few minutes.

I have a Jacuzzi Z 145 spa. I was constantly getting an FL error. Purchased a new switch, put it on and when I turn the spa on I immediately get a circuit blow. What could be causing this problem?


Its possible your heater has a ground fault. If the old pressure sw was giving the FL code the system would not send power to the heater. Now with the new sw working power is being sent to the heater.

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
