2001 Sundance Spa Caprio St Problem

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if its in summer logic mode or what but I have not used the tub in like 2 weeks and today I noticed it was flashing numbers on the screen. After looking at it for awhile it was flashing the temperature one number at a time. Like it would flash 9 on the left and then it would go away and then flash the 6 on the other side and it would keep doing it. Anyone know what is going on? Manual doesn't say anything about it.

I checked all the controls and yes they are all working. The jets turn on and so does the light. Is there anyway to determine which part it is without changing them out with new parts? I guess I am asking what part should I invest in first and be the most likley problem.

The display is scrolling. The tub will run fine like this, but it should be taken care of. It is either going to be a bad board or a bad topside control.

From the service side of things. for whatever unknown reason, the temp sensor seems to raise hell with the motherboard, sounds like the top-side is working fine to me, if all the pumps, light blower, ect., work it has to be a temp sensor.

Sundance- most common brain scrambler =temp sensor let me know how it works out, temp sensor is easy to test, and every good service center has one in stock for this very reason. It's not the topside believe me. PS do not let them sell you a new board, the chip can be swaped out, this is what you get for not going with Balboa! lol!

Ok from what I saw online the temp sensor looks like a long wire that goes into the board and the other end goes into the shell or do need to replace the chip on the board to fix this problem. Is there a place where I can just buy the chip from?I guess my question money wise would be in troubleshooting this it is going to cost over $45.00 to figure this out because I have a home warranty and paid extra for the spa coverage. The 45.00 bucks is my deductible. However I would rather fix things myself if at all possible.

No. The temp sensor is not causing this problem. The temp sensor is not a "brain scrambler." All it does is read resistance. Yes, it could be the topside. Yes it could be the board. NO. It is not the temp sensor.

Yes the chip can be swapped out. Will this fix the issue? Maybe. Check the capacitors right next to the chip. They should look like small soda cans. Are the tops flat? Or are they bulged out? If they are bulged out, replace the board.
