Swim Spa and Balboa el8000m3 spa pack

Recommended Posts

Having issues with my heater.....it won’t turn off and eventually I get the error with High Temp and spa shuts down.
 

Thinking it could be a heater relay stuck.  Might need a new board.   
 

been thinking about disconnecting the heater all together and this will allow my spa to work as normal with filtering and Jets without the heater.

Thinking about disconnecting the heater relay so the water won’t heat up. Live in CA just need a swim spa and don’t need the heating.  Will this still rack up my electric bill?  I assume not no because I am now drawing power.....

Sounds like a stuck relay. Your spa will still turn on the pump any time the set temp is above the actual temp. If it has modes, put it in sleep or economy. If it does not there should be a diagram on the inside of the box cover with a dipswitch chart, post a pic of that.

I put it on sleep already and heater still stays on even when circ pump is off.  Only way heater shuts off is if I cut power completely to spa or when high temp limit is reached.

I ended up disconnecting one side of the heater element to stop it from heating up the water.  Working normally now.  Will keep it on sleep until I figure out the heater issue.  Got a cold tub for now.  
 

Anyway to get a relay unstuck?

Yeah, sleep mode is just to stop the pump from running non-stop while the heater is disconnected.

Pull the board and take it to an electronics repair shop. Those relays are pretty standard, they will probably have them in stock.
