    94 Soverign Overheating

    So the other day I dumped and refilled my spa.. (94 Hot Springs Soverign).. today I went back out to throw some more dichlor in there to get my CYA up and the thing was pegged on my floating thermometer. It had to have been 150+ degrees. Obviously I unplugged it, but don't have any idea where to start?? The thermostat is not working, and I believe there is some sort of hi-limit thermostat as well that's not working. I'm familiar with the mechanics of the tub but not so much the electric logic. Any hints?

    Most heaters use snap discs that open and close at certain temperatures. Look for these, they can be tested with an OHM meter, or that setting on a multimeter.
