Hi there, I'm Cole. I see your asking about spas and i think i can help. So if the tub is saying that the set temp is 90 but it keeps going to 100 than your thermostat is probably the cause. i can probably help you identify what you need if i have the information off the control box inside the tub. I hope this helps :)
