  1. Ok so just finished working on it I used my amp clamp and wasn't getting any draw from the heater. I then tested the heater ad it seems to be good ! Next step I did was over ride the pressure sensor. I read that Iu must do this within 5 seconds of turning the power on. This worked. I got 16 amps on the amp clamp. And 240 volts. I checked for continuity on the pressure sensor and it indeed does work. So unadjusted it properly using the continuity meter and turning the pump on a few times. Here is the issue. The pimp only turns on about 9 seconds after turning power on and for some reason this is to long and won't turn the heater on. Is this making sense? I can get heater on if I manually over rode the switch within 5 seconds. Thank you guys so much for your help so far. It's been such a blessing.
  2. How can I over ride the pressure switch to allow heating just in case it's bad
  3. Ok will check ac voltage in the morning. If it reads less then 120. What's my next step
  4. ok so i checked the resistance and voltage and i believe my element is good. then i tested the voltage and I'm not getting any dc voltage from the terminals on the heater.. i even disconnected the plugs and went right to the mother board and still not getting anything.. any ideas?
  5. Thank you guys so much for your help so far. How can I test if the heat element is working? When I touch the spa pack heater pipe it's not very hot. Should it be? Any help appreciated
  6. When i turn the breaker off then on it kicks on low speed but the tub won't heat to 104 only to 77... but when i switch the high and low wire on the pump and then click the breaker on and off i get high speed on turn on and it will heat to 104. its been driving me insane for months. u think my element might be gone and its just the pump heating that much? to 104?
  7. The Story behind the tub. i purchased a balboa hot tub from a spa company in my city and this tub is a 1998. when i first set everything up they forgot to send me the pump so when i called them they couldnt find it and gave me a brand new ultra jet pump. when i wired everything up the lite leader board wasnt putting out the right voltage so i had to get it replaced. once i finally had everything said and done the problem im having is the following When i wired the pump up the diagram on the lite leader showed brn blu and blk going to pump as high low and common. and the wires that i have for my pump are black red and white. so finally i found a diagram on the internet for lite leader that had those 3 colors and i wired it up. the problem im having is when i first boot up the hot tub it begins heating with the pump on low speed. which is my understanding thats how it should be but unfortunately it wont heat up the tub past 80 degrees. but when i switch the high and low wire so that it heats with the pump on high it heats the tub to 104. the issue im having is that this will use much much more electricity. Anyone have any ideas on what could be going on? Any help is appreciated it!
