Usually when this happens the actuator or the relay that controls the valve to the spa has failed. Check for loose wires to the actuator (gray box on top of valve that automates the valve). If you do not find a loose wire, then the relay in the control box electrical panel may have gone bad and needs to be replaced you. You can check this with a volt meter. This is a very common problem. The only other reason this could occur is if someone has manually changed the sequence on the actuator.
