  1. I have a new spa with Balboa Lite Duplex Digital L401 topside control. The manual was removed and lost and I'm having a hard time figuring out how to set and control temperature. HELP!!! I can't find a user guide online. Any suggestions would. be greatly appreciated. -- Teresa Hayward
  2. I have a 700 Series Vita, about 10 years old. Has been a great tub overall. About a month ago, (with tub set at 102 degrees), found the water temp reading at 99. The circ pump was running but the heater indicator on the control panel was not lit. If I press the "temp up" button, to 103 or 104, the heater indicator on the control panel appears for 2 seconds and goes off again. (and it is not an indicator problem as I can tell the tub is not heating) if I come back a few hours later, the tub will be up to temp again, and if I adjust the temp up or down, the heater indicator goes on or off accordingly. this is a daily occurrence now. I have reset the tub to factory specs by turning off power for 5 minutes and then holding clear for 10 seconds per the manual. I have replaced the temp sensor, no change in symptoms. so, 1/2 the time the tub functions as designed, and 1/2 the time, it will cycle down to 97 to 99 degrees and not kick on the heater, or when I manually adjust the temp higher. so, my issue is one of a few things (I think). Either there is a "time issue" that it will not function in some time window, or it is a limit issue...ie; the tub runs and heats for a period of time and then it shuts down until something cools off and resets?, or just an intermittent "fault" somewhere. scratching my head.... (and of course this is happening in the middle of an Iowa winter..hoping not to convert my tub into a 300 gallon block of ice)
  3. I have a natural gas lrz heater that is reading the wrong temp. Reads 93 when water is 80 ish, it turns on if I set the dial higher than 93 but its getting worse so I would like to fix it. Should I just replace the temp sensor or can I clean it or someething? Or is it another issue entirely? Thanks a lot
  4. Hello all, I have never posted here and just thought I would give you all a try at helping me figure out whats going on with my hot tub.... We recently bought a house with a hot tub already in it. The hot tub was up and running when we bought it. I drained, cleaned and filled it and it ran perfect for about 2 months. One day I noticed the temp was at 100 and would not reach the 103 setting that I had it at. Thinking it was a flow issue, I changed the filter and it heated right back up and ran perfect for about 2 more weeks. It again dropped temp, but this time to 102 and would continually run at 102 and never turn off (trying to reach the 102 setting) . I bought a new filter and changed it with no luck as it still ran continually. I did a bit of research and changed both temp probes thinking they were sending a false temp reading. After I drained it, changed the probs, re-filled it it heated up to my 103 setting and turned off. The next day, the temp is again at 102 and runs continually trying to reach 103. I decided to pull the filter out and see if it was again a bad filter.... it ran at 102 for 2 hours continually and never reached 103. Im not sure what else is going on... anyone else have the same issue? Its a 2004 Colman Maxx Spa, 631 series.
  5. I have acquired a Jacuzzi spa, and I am experiencing some problems. It is a z145/345, 240000. It has a Balboa board R574 with a 4kw heating element. It was wired for 115v, and I field converted it to 230v system, following instructions labeled on the inside cover of the control unit. I installed it using a 50w GFCI dedicated circuit breaker, with a 60 amp rated disconnect outside. All things are wired correctly. Pump works correctly, topside controls work correctly, and I heat very well. The problem I have is overheating of the water. The high limit sensor worked, because when it hit 112 degrees, power was shut off to the whole unit. I have tested the power output to the heater, and it is always on, even after reaching set point. When the water reaches the set point, the LED light on the topside controller shuts off, I can hear a contactor release, but 240 stays going to the heating element. I tried a new temp sensor, and had no success. I followed recommendations online, disconnected the topside controller after reaching set point, and still no success. I can manually release one contactor, and 240w is eliminated from the heater, but 120w remains. Something is not telling the heater to turn off, and I am wondering what else I can look for. I would appreciate any feedback in this matter.
