It's supposed to be Sn1, but it looks like a 5. ;-)

Sn1 usually indicates a problem with the High Limit temperature sensor, but it can be caused by other faults such as restricted water flow and I'm assuming that your Coleman has the Balboa controls.

Check the operation of the Circulation pump / Pump 1 and if the water flow is adequate you could try changing the sensor. If however you're unsure about anything, seek professional help.

If you're in the UK I can help with parts and if you're local I can possibly come and check the hot tub for you.

Kind Regards,

What does OH mean on a hot tub control panel

OH stands for overheat. This normally occurs when the water temperature of the spa reaches over the safe temp of 104 degrees, as a result of a failure in the thermostat control. But if you receive this error and the water is not scorching, (a fairly common occruance) then the temp sensors have likely failed. Replacing the temp sensors will most likely rectify the problem. If the problem persists, then the circuit board is bad.
