Great Lakes Spa

6 posts in this topic

We have recently purchased a home which included an Great Lakes spa. I have not checked the numbers but it is either a 2002 or 2003 4 person spa. The control on the top is 3 buttons, jets, heat and light. The contol will activate the jets on low and high, the problem when I push the button the 3rd time to shut it off, it will shut off for a second or two and then turn back on. I can't get the jets to shut off.

I also noticed when I press the heat button and then the jet button a code comes up with either FC, F2, F4, F6 and F8. None of these seem to shut the jets off. After research it says the switch is made by Balboa Instruments Inc but I'm not at home to check the model number.

Has anyone else had this problem? If so what fixed the problem? and what do the codes mean?

Any help would be appreciated.

The jets won't go off if it's heating or in one of it's filter cycles. When the code comes up FC,F2,F4,F8 that is where you choose how long you want it to filter for. It will filter twice a day. FC=filter continuosly, F2=filter for 2 hours and so on. Once you are in the filter choice screen and have choosen your filter time, exit by hitting the heat button again.

Call 1-616-871-3400 and speak to someone at great lakes. They should be able to walk you through it. or you can go to balboacontrols.com and search for your control pack
