Hot Tub Tech Tips

Our service department will contact you promptly to help you with your issue.

Most hot tub issues will cause an error code to display on your topside control panel. These error codes are to help diagnose the issue you might be experiencing with your hot tub. If your hot tub is displaying an error code please follow these few steps to help us trouble shoot your issue.

Step 1) Write down the error code(s) that are displaying on your topside
Step 2) Scroll through the list of error codes on our website to help diagnose the meaning and possible cause
Step 3) Fill out the form below and be sure to tell us which error code is displaying along with any other issue or symptoms your hot tub might be having

 

ACC (Applied Computer Controls)

CoLd = Temperature in  the spa heater housing is below 40° F. Status of the heater element is unknown.  The low speed pump or circ pump will operate continuously until the temperature  rises above 45° F.
OH = Over heat. The spa is at a temperature  above 108° . Do not use spa
when temperature is flashing or the OH message is  displayed.
HLoH = Hi Limit Over Heat. Hi limit sensor is disconnected or shorted or the spa temperature is above 112° F.
SEoP = Sensor open or disconnected.  Heater disabled but the spa is
operational.
SESH = Sensor short, nonfunctional. Heater disabled but the spa is operational.
PSoC = Pressure switch open with circulating pump.
PSoL = Pressure switch open with low pump.
PSoH = Pressure switch open with high pump.
ToE = Time out error. Rare system  error.  Spa unusable. Contact ACC.
