  1. Man I feel like I dodged a bullet on this one..... After typing my original post, I went back out by the tub looking for any signs something was bad on the heater and relay board. One of my kids walked up and told me she turned the temp down to 83 the other day for no reason.... So I check and sure enough, temp set at 83.....This makes sense now because the heater lights were on indicating it was working, its just the temp was turned wayyyyy down. The one thing I never thought to check was to press the temp button to see where it was set. 😣 Thanks for the help tho RD! She is n
  2. Today I noticed my water temp is in the 80’s so immediately I looked at the Power and Ready lights on the front panel. None were blinking indicating a problem with the unit and/or heater. So I took the front panel off to check the IQ 2020 panel to see if the lights for the heater were on. And they are. The recirculating pump is running fine so I know the flow is good on the pressure switch. I’ve shut the breakers off and on a couple times and you can hear the “click” noise the heater makes when it turns on, it’s just not heating Sunday I did a water change using the Ahhsome hot tub
  3. GOT IT!!!!! Thank you RDspaguy and others for you help. This has been a process. Lol. It is on and working!!! Thanks again everyone for y’all help.
  4. OK so I was able to have another electrician come out and hook up the proper outside breaker panel with the proper wiring according to the schematic on the IQ2020 lid. Now I have a new problem. The 20 amp trips. And from my research when this is the case, it’s because of the way the breaker is wired as mentioned in a post above. We have come to the possible conclusion that the way it was wired up by the other guy might have damaged something on the circuit board itself. pics of how new Breaker is wired up.
  5. Thanks for the offer, but I was able to locate a Hotsprings Vanguard breaker panel. The diagram I have shows a neutral on both the 20 and 30. Is this not correct?
  6. I was starting to figure this disconnect was not what I needed. The wires used currently are 6/3 w/ a ground.
  7. Thanks for the reply hopefully I can answer all your questions. 1- I removed the two sensors from the heater and wiped each one with a paper towel. I understand internally they could be damaged but what I was intending was they appeared to be ok as far as buildup and whatnot is concerned. 2- The tub was filled by sticking the hose in the grey stand pipe. But I guess it still could have had an air lock. 3- Ill try and figure out how to attach pics for this tho In the back of my mind I have wondered if the breaker box is wrong. The manual (and everywhere else Ive seen) shows tw
  8. Hello all, I am brand new to the hot tub world as I was just given an older model (2005) Vanguard hot tub. I have a couple questions that hopefully some of you can help me with or at least point me in the right direction. Ive been scouring the interwebz the last couple weeks educating myself in the general knowledge of these things and on my unit specifically. Which has proven to be harder than I thought for this older unit. First question- The power and ready lights are flashing. From the research I have done this is due to a couple things. Filters are clean and the 2 temp sensors on th
