Hey Guys and Gals, I'm really hoping someone here can help me as I'm at a total loss... I recently moved into a new rental home and there is a nice 2006 Spa Coleman Hot Tub outback. It looks brand new. The owner of the property indicated it wasn't working but he would spend up to 200 on parts if I did the work to which I agreed to see if we can get it going. So first off it hasn't ran in about a year. The water in the tub is stone cold maybe 40 some degrees. When you power on the breaker the tub goes through what appears to be a self check and flashes 100 then 21 then 114 then 240 and then goes direct to an OHH (Overheat Code). I have verified DIP Switch 3 is on and all others are off as shown on the panel diagram. My immediate thought was one of the M7 sensors on the inline Balboa heater were bad. After pricing the 2 sensors I decided to just replace the entire heater with both sensors. The new heater cam today and I installed with both new M7 sensors it just fine with no issues and sure enough it still loads to the OHH screen. I am completely locked out of the panel all it will display is OHH and there is no function. Here are a few more factors that may help someone with more knowledge than me come to a conclusion... 1.) I can't find a rest button anywhere other than the GFCI Reset on the breaker panel. I have looked on the board and all along the power in cord. Am I Missing Something? 1A.) I have hosed out the filter. 2.) When I leave the power to the tub even though the OHH remains on the tub does go into its standard cycle and powers on jets to circulate water every 15 minutes. 3.) If I switch on DIP Switch 10 I get message CFE then A10. Which I understand is a programing mode for the factory and not supposed to be used by the end user. I didn't mess with it to screw up programing but did this to verify the board is in fact communicating with the topside panel. In my logic this says the board is working at least somewhat. 4.) Could it be the sensor inside the tub? That will be a bear to change the way its on the tub so I'm hoping to stay away from that if it's not the likely culprit. At the end of the day it's not my hot tub but I have a 2 year lease here and am willing to spend a few bucks to get it going. The one local spa place here charges 200 just to come out and have a look and then 150 per hour which I can't afford for just a diagnostic! Please help! I'd love to hear if you've ever experienced this or something similar and what the fix was. Happy New Year Everyone! Justin
Hi! I have been racking my brain and reading any article I can find in order to repair my hot tub. I have a Sweetwater Aruba hot tub that throws the OH code and then Watchdog ---. From what I have read I am guessing the temp sensor is bad but where I get confused is when the tub is showing OH the water is actually over heated, ie: not 60 reading 110 but actually 110. Does this mean something else is wrong besides the temp sensor? Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!
I have a 2007 Hydro Spa Essence. The circuit board is an HS 2000 Mach 3 S/N 55013-01. I recently replaced the heater assembly approx. 2 months ago and my spa has been working great. Recently I checked it and the topside panel displayed "h o t"(without the quotations) and that's a code I have never seen before. None of the topside controls were responsive so I turned the main breaker off and turned it back on after several minutes. The same code appeared with the topside buttons showing no response. I turned the breaker off for several days and powered it up again to see the same message. It will not go into priming mode (Pr) or respond in any way. I talked to tech support at Hydro Spa (Premium Leisure) now and he told me to replace the circuit board. I asked if there was anything else I could try to power the hot tub and he said No. I have seen different codes before but never the h o t code. Can someone please guide me as to my next course of action. I will replace the circuit board if that is what must happen. Thank you for any guidance you can give me.
5 year old system. starting getting 171 and 190 error codes. Indicating a bad backboard. Replaced the backboard and cleaned the cell which was not really that dirty. It runs for a few hours and then the service light and 171 and 190 error codes come up again. If I cut power and reset the unit it will run for a few hours and then I get the same codes and service message. I replaced the backboard as it was less than $100. The cell and the front board are both closer to $400 so I want to narrow it down as just changing parts is expensive. I'm leaning towards replacing the front board as my service guy says he's seen that before. He also said I should replace the cell no matter what because it is past it's 5 year typical life any way. #1 Can a bad or failing cell cause these codes? #2 Has anyone had the front board "talking" to the backboard and sending these codes? Thanks for any advice.
