Topside Control Error Codes Quick Reference -Balboa
Error codes are for quick reference only, please contact manufactures for additional information.
This list if far from complete and covers older model controls.

 
 
  '- -' Temperature Unknown
  'Cool' Water temp 20 below set point
  'dr' Possible inadequate water, poor flow, or air bubbles are detected in heater. Spa is shut down for 15 minutes.
  'dry' Inadequate water detected in heater
  'Enc' Spa is operating in Economy Mode. This is normal and is not an indication of an error.
 

Inadequate water detected in heater. (Displays on the third occurrence of 'dr'  message.) Spa is shut down.

  'FLO' Improper flow or pressure switch malfunction
  'HFL' There may be greater than 5 F difference between temperature sensors - this could indicate a flow problem
  'HH' "Overheat" - The spa has shut down -one of the sensors has detected that the spa water is 110F/43 C
  'HL' A significant difference between temperature sensors has been detected. This could indicate a flow problem.
  'IC' "Ice" Potential freeze condition has been detected
  'ICE' Auxiliary sensor detects potential freeze condition
  'ICE' Potential freeze condition has been detected
  ''lLOC' Interlock failure - possible pump or ozone spike
  'LF' Persistent low flow problems. (Displays on the fifth occurrence of 'HL ' message within 24 hours.)
Heater is shut down, but other spa functions continue to run normally.
  'OH' Sensors reading 112-118
  'OH' "Overheat" - The spa has shut down -one of the sensors has detected that the spa water is 110F/43 C
  'OHH' "Overheat" - The spa has shut down -one of the sensors has detected 118 at the heater
  'OHS' "Overheat" - The spa has shut down -one of the sensors has detected 110 at the heater
  'Pr' On some units when spa is first actuated, it will go into a Priming Mode.
This is normal and is not an indication of an error.
  'pd' Power supply, unit running on battery backup slow-dissolving
  'SA' Spa is shut down.  The sensor that is plugged into the sensor "A" jack is not working
  'Sb' Spa is shut down.  The sensor that is plugged into the sensor "B" jack is not working
  'SE' Spa operating in Standard-in-Economy Mode.
  'SL'
or
'SLP'
( The following is not a Error Message, but is part of the units normal operation )
   If the SLP or SL Message is Alternating with the Water Temperature
on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Sleep Heating Mode.The Spa is Operating in the "Economy" (Ecn or Ec) Heating Mode.
The Water Temperature is Sampled Only during Programmed Filter Cycles. The Heater will Only operate and Heat up to Set Temperature during the Filter Cycles. The Water Temperature will probably drop Below Set Temperature between Filter Cycles. Other Heating Modes are Standard, Standard in Economy, and Sleep Modes.
   If the SLP or SL Message is ON Solid (Not Flashing) on the Display
, the Spa is Operating in the Sleep Heating Mode, but there is No current water temperature because the Spa is between Filter Cycles.
The Current Water Temperature is "Unknown" (- - - or - -) while in Economy or Sleep Mode.
Between Filter Cycles, while in the Economy or Sleep Heating Modes, the Pump has not turned ON and the Last Water Temperature is not Current. To read the Current Water Temperature, either Change to Standard Heating Mode or turn On the Heating Related Pump, and wait at least 2 Minutes.
  'Sn' Sensors are out of balance. If alternating with spa temperature, it may just be a temporary condition.
If flashing by itself, spa is shut down.
  'SnA' Sensor 'A' malfunction
  'SnB' Sensor 'B' malfunction
  'SnS' Sensors are out of balance. If alternating with spa temperature, it may just be a temporary condition.
If flashing by itself, spa is shut down.
  'Sn1' Hi-limit sensor malfunction
  'Sn3' Temp sensor malfunction
  'SnH' Spa is shut down - The sensor that is plugged into the hi-limit jack is not working
  'Snt' Spa is shut down -The sensor that is plugged into the temperature jack is not working
  'Std' Spa is operating in Standard Mode. This is normal and is not an indication of an error.
