Hello, I have a coleman spa that was giving me a FLO warning and after trouble shooting I replaced start capacitor and motor started to work normal. After a couple of hours running the FLO warning would reappear. Water level good, filter removed and still experienced same problem. I had just replaced the motor approx. 1 year ago. Thank you for any suggestions. CTJ

My name is Garry. I'll be glad to assist with your spa

When you get the "FLO" code, it is telling us that there is a restriction of water flow through the heater. If the pump motor fails to run, there will be no water flow, and the code will appear and the spa will not heat.

First thing is to confirm the motor is still running. If it is, you will then need to check the pressure switch and confirm it is closing while the pump is running. Pleas post your findings here at your convenience. Thank you.

Just checking to see if you were able to solve the issue with your spa, or if you still need assistance?
