    Easytouch 8 and gas heater settings

    My heater isn't working, and I'm not sure if I messed up a setting on the easytouch when winterizing or...

    Easytouch 8.
    Laars Lx400.

    There is a heat pump setting on the easy touch showing disabled, but I didn't remember disabling it.

    Does the heat pump need to be enabled for a gas heater to run?

    tnx in advance.

    If you have a gas heater, heat pump should be disabled. Heater needs to be enabled on the HEAT menu, but heat pump should be disabled.

    Thanks Jason.

    I found a broken wire going to one of the lugged connectors inside of the Lx400.

    Spa will be hot tonite!!
