This week we have a question from one of our hot tub customers about hot tub repair, and the E6 or Error 6 on their hot tub top side control. The E6 error code on your hot tub usually refers to a reduction or stoppage of water pressure. The E6 code is a warning that there is not sufficient water flow for the power pack to continue operating without possible damage. The power pack must shut down for self preservation. If you do not have enough water flow the area with the heating element will over heat and melt.

The cause of an E6 error code in hot tubs varies greatly but here are a list of things to consider and check.

  • Filter – The most common reason for an E6 in a hot tub is dirty hot tub filters. It is so important for the operation of your hot tub that you clean your filters weekly with a rinse and every 3 – 6 months with a full degreaser bath to remove the residue. If the filters are dirty the water flow through your hot tub power pack will be impeded and you will have an E6 code and the hot tub will shutdown. This can have disastrous results in the winter if your power pack stops operating and goes unnoticed.
  • Suction or Intakes in your hot tub – Another possibility to the restriction of water flow can be debris at the suction areas of the hot tub. Make sure these areas are clear from debris.
  • Air Lock – Another common issue is after filling up your hot tub after draining it or when first starting our you have an air lock in your line. The way to remove this air lock is by either opening the union closest to your pump, or when you are filling your hot tub force the water through your skimmer basket. The air lock most commonly is in the heater element area.
  • Shut Off Valves – This can be overlooked from time to time, make sure your shut off valves are all open when you start up your power pack.
  • Power Pack – The last possible issue that you can have with an E6 error code on your hot tub is a faulty pump. The possible problems your pump can have is debris in your impeller, the shaft being seized, or a capacitor issue. Either way you would hear a constant hum from the motor with no water flow. At this point you would want to call in a hot tub service specialist to help.

Hopefully this helps our hot tub community with the E6 or Error 6 code on your hot tub.

DISCLAIMER

A personal loan is a medium term loan with a fixed interest rate that is repaid in equal monthly payments and it's usually limited to 24 months. Loan offers and eligibility depend on your individual credit profile. Our lenders can help you obtain as much as $3,000 depending on the lender, your state and your financial situation.

The owner and operator of businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and is not involved into making credit decisions associated with lending or making loan offers. Instead, the website is designed only for a matching service, which enables the users contact with the lenders and third parties. The website does not charge any fees for its service, nor does it oblige any user to initiate contact with any of the lenders or third parties or accept any loan product or service offered by the lenders. All the data concerning personal loan products and the industry is presented on the website for information purposes only.

Businessfinancenews.com does not endorse any particular lender, nor does it represent or is responsible for the actions or inactions of the lenders. Businessfinancenews.com does not collect, store or has access to the information regarding the fees and charges associated with the contacting lenders and/or any loan products. Online personal loans are not available in all the states. Not all the lenders in the network can provide the loans up to $3,000. Businessfinancenews.com cannot guarantee that the user of the website will be approved by any lender or for any loan product, will be matched with a lender, or if matched, will receive a personal loan offer on the terms requested in the online form. The lenders may need to perform credit check via one or more credit bureaus, including but not limited to major credit bureaus in order to determine credit reliability and the scopes of credit products to offer. The lenders in the network may need to perform additional verifications, including but not limited to social security number, driver license number, national ID or other identification documents. The terms and scopes of loan products vary from lender to lender and can depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the state of residence and credit standing of the applicant, as well as the terms determined by each lender individually. 

APR REPRESENTATIVE

APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is the loan rate calculated for the annual term. Since businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and has no information regarding the terms and other details of personal loan products offered by lenders individually, businessfinancenews.com cannot provide the exact APR charged for any loan product offered by the lenders. The APRs greatly vary from lender to lender, state to state and depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the credit standing of an applicant. Additional charges associated with the loan offer, including but not limited to origination fees, late payment, non-payment charges and penalties, as well as non-financial actions, such as late payment reporting and debt collection actions, may be applied by the lenders. These financial and non-financial actions have nothing to do with businessfinancenews.com, and businessfinancenews.com has no information regaining whatsoever actions may be taken by the lenders. All the financial and non-financial charges and actions are to be disclosed in any particular loan agreement in a clear and transparent manner. The APR is calculated as the annual charge and is not a financial charge for a personal loan product. 

Late Payment Implications

It is highly recommended to contact the lender if late payment is expected or considered possible. In this case, late payment fees and charges may be implied. Federal and state regulations are determined for the cases of late payment and may vary from case to case. All the details concerning the procedures and costs associated with late payment are disclosed in loan agreement and should be reviewed prior to signing any related document. 

Non-payment Implications

Financial and non-financial penalties may be implied in cases of non-payment or missed payment. Fees and other financial charges for late payment are to be disclosed in loan agreement. Additional actions related to non-payment, such as renewals, may be implied upon given consent. The terms of renewal are to be disclosed in each loan agreement individually. Additional charges and fees associated with renewal may be applied. 

Debt collection practices and other related procedures may be performed. All the actions related to these practices are adjusted to Fair Debt Collection Practices Act regulations and other applicable federal and state laws in order to protect consumers from unfair lending and negative borrowing experience. The majority of lenders do not refer to outside collection agencies and attempt to collect the debt via in-house means. 

Non-payment and late payment may have negative impact on the borrowers’ credit standing and downgrade their credit scores, as the lenders may report delinquency to credit bureaus, including but not limited to Equifax, Transunion, and Experian. In this case the results of non-payment and late payment may be recorded and remain in credit reports for the determined amount of time.
