Hello.

Couple questions to help me help figure out why your hot tub is not heating to temp:

Is the hot tub continuously running low speed?

Is the red "heat on" light lit up on the topside control...it's usually between or next to the temp up/down buttons?

Do the jets work hi speed on all pumps?

Is the temp holding around 85?

Thank you
