START UP & SETTING OPERATING CONTROLS
LEVEL-1 (Owner) ACCESS
NOTE:
Covered within this section are features and settings typically accessed first by
the installer, and then remaining accessible by the end user (owner). These
features reside at the Level-1 access point within the microprocessor. (Please
see page-11 for information concerning Level-2, service-related access.)
1.
Applying Power to The Controller:
A. When power is first applied, the control performs a lamp test and the display will read
[888]. Following [888], and with versions .04 and greater, the software version will
display briefly. Additionally, all status LED’s lights will illuminate for 4 seconds and
then go off for 1 second.
B. The control will then display the actual temperature as long as the pool-circulating pump
is on.
C. If the pool-circulating pump is off, the control will display the [FLO] (No Water Flow)
code message indicating water is not being circulated though the heat pump.
2.
Turning The Heat Pump ON:
A. Once electrical power is supplied to the heat pump, the pool-circulating pump is
activated, and the control has successfully completed the self-test, the unit is ready to
operate.
B. The control is shipped with the SPA set point in the [OFF] mode and with the POOL set
point selected. The heat pump is automatically switched off if a set point below 60 °F
has been selected. In the [OFF] mode, the control will display the water temperature as
long as the pool water-circulating pump is operational. In the event water is not
circulating through the heat pump, the control will display the [FLO] (No Water Flow)
code message.
C. Using the Up ⇑ arrow key, increase the desired temperature until it exceeds the value of
the actual temperature displayed. (Note: See #8, below, if “000” is displayed upon
pressing up or down arrows.) Once the desired temperature has been entered, the display
will read the actual temperature and the heat pump will start to operate. Both the
compressor and fan must be operating before the “Heat” LED will illuminate.
3.
Turning The Heat Pump OFF:
A. Using the Down ⇓ arrow key, decrease the desired temperature until the display reads
[OFF]. The heater will shut off, and will remain off until the temperature set point is
raised above 60° F.
B. NOTE: Each time the heater is turned off, either manually, or by the thermostat
becoming satisfied, there will be a 4-minute delay prior to restarting.
4.
Selecting Pool / Spa Thermostat Settings:
A. Depress the Pool / Spa key to toggle between the pool and spa temperature set points.
B. The pool / spa led indicator lights located to the left of the temperature display will
confirm the selected temperature set point.

Fahrenheit) code appears.
B. With the [CF1] code displayed, pressing either the Up ⇑ or Down ⇓ arrow key will
display either a (1) or (0). Select (1) for Fahrenheit temperature display or (0) for Celsius
temperature display. Once the desired temperature display has been selected, not
depressing any buttons for 15 seconds will allow the control to save the selection and
return to the normal operating mode. Pressing the Pool / Spa key will also save the
selection and step to the next menu parameter [ULC] (User Lock Code).
8.
User Lock Code Option [ULC] :
This Option Explained:
Heat pumps are shipped from the factory with the ULC option disabled. Enabling the ULC
function permits the heat pump owner to restrict access to the unit controls. With the ULC
option enabled, unless the correct ULC lock code number is entered, changes to Level-1
programming are not possible (I.e.: Altering temperature set points, Pool/Spa selection, C/F
display changes, etc., will not be possible). The ULC option can be thought of as an
electronic lockable cover for the controls.
A. Selecting ULC Option:
1) Depress either of the Up⇑ or Down ⇓ arrow keys; if [000] is displayed, the ULC
feature is already enabled. If [000] displays, proceed to number “6)” of this section;
otherwise, see number “2” below;
2) Depress both the Up ⇑ and Down ⇓ arrow keys simultaneously until the [CF1]
display appears;
3) Depress the pool/spa key once, the [ULC] display will appear;
4) With [ULC] displayed, pressing either the Up or Down arrow key will display either
“1” or “0”. Selecting “0” will allow the control keypad to remain unlocked. Selecting
“1” will enable the User Lock Code option. Then, to enter a lock code number, press
the pool/spa key once. [ELC] (Enter Lock Code) will display;
9
5) With [ELC] displayed, use the Up or Down arrow keys to select a lock code
number. The factory set lock code is “17”. Not depressing any buttons for 15seconds will allow the control to save the selection and return to the normal
operating mode. Pressing the Pool / Spa key will also save the selection and step to
the next menu parameter [CFO] (Call Flex Options);
6) Once the ULC option has been enabled, depressing any key will display [000]
(prompting the entry of the correct lock code number). To gain access to the
controller:
a) Using the Up⇑ arrow, scroll to the correct lock code number, then:
b) Press the Pool/Spa selector button…Current water temperature will be
displayed… Control settings can now be viewed and changed as desired.
c) After a period of approximately four (4) minutes, during which time no
buttons have been pressed, the controller will automatically return to the
locked mode. Provided the ULC selection is “1”, the controller will always
fail-safe in the locked mode.
d) Without knowledge of the correct lock code number, with ULC enabled,
control adjustments will not be possible. Be certain to record your
security code in a safe place. The lock code number may be changed any
number of times by following the instructions detailed above in this section.
B. User Lock Code is Activated, but Pass Number is Not Known (“Back Door Entry”):
NOTE: Should the ULC option be enabled, and a lock code number other than the
factory default (17) be installed but is unknown, the following procedure
may be followed to re-gain controller programming access:
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
Turn off power to the heater at the breaker;
Simultaneously press and hold down the Up & Down arrows;
Continue holding arrow buttons down while turning the power back on;
Keep holding arrows down for approximately 15 seconds;
[CF1] will appear;
Go to [ELC] by pushing the Pool/Spa button. (Display will change each time P/S
button is pushed.);
7) Go to the up arrow, push it once. (The number that appears is the present, valid lock
code number);
8) It is recommend the access code be returned to the factory default: “17”, before
exiting the program. By going back to [ELC] you can use the Up/Down arrows to
reset the lock code number back up or down to “17”.
9.
Selecting Call / Flex Pump Options [CFO] …
( This feature will apply only if the heater installation includes a Call/Flex module.):
A. Depress both the Up ⇑ and Down ⇓ arrow keys simultaneously until [CF1] display
appears. Depress the pool/spa key twice, the display will appear.
B. With the [CFO] (Call Flex Options) code displayed, use the Up or Down arrow keys to
select, (0) to disable Call Flex Options, (1) to enable the Call Option, or (2) to enable the

C. Refer to the additional instruction, entitled: Installing A Remote Flow Switch For
Automatic Thermostat Switching.
4. Water Sensor calibration [tSC]…
If it is believed the displayed temperature does not match the actual water temperature in the
pool or spa, follow the steps below to verify and adjust the control if necessary. Be certain to
use a reliable thermometer for maximum accuracy:
A. With circulating pump in operation, and water moving through the heater, use a reliable
thermometer to measure the temperature of the pool or spa water. Be sure to measure the
water temperature away from returns. The object is to accurately determine the
temperature of the water entering the heater.
B. Once you have measured the water temperature, compare the result to the heater’s
displayed water temperature. If the temperatures are the same or within 1° F, no
calibration is necessary. If the temperatures differ 2 to 3° F, calibration is necessary…
Follow the instructions below.
C. Follow the steps “1A.” through “1D.” above to enter the service menu. Once [dEL] is
displayed, press the Pool / Spa key three times to display [tSC] (Water Temperature
Calibration). Using either the Up ⇑ or Down ⇓ arrow keys, calibrate the water
temperature sensor by increasing or decreasing the numeric value displayed to match the
water temperature reading measured on your thermometer. The control can be adjusted
to + 10° or - 10° from the nominal displayed temperature. However, offset cal librations
greater than 3° should be avoided…Such large offsets generally indicate problems with
the method of water temperature measurement, a water sensor not properly inserted in
well, or other equipment issues. Do NOT attempt to mask such issues through offset
calibration.
D. Once the corrected temperature is displayed, pressing the Pool / Spa Key will save the
newly displayed water temperature value, and will step to the controller to the next
service menu parameter: [dSC] , Defrost Sensor Calibration.
5. Defrost Sensor Calibration [dSC]…
In the event the Defrost Sensor requires calibration, the following steps must be followed
closely to insure optimal defrost control:
A. Turn the heater off;
13
WARNING !!!! Dealer & Service Center Use Only
B. Remove the unit front panel to gain access to the defrost sensor . The defrost sensor will
be found strapped to the suction line in combination with the TXV sensing bulb, or, in
some models, the defrost sensor will be connected to the suction line independent of the
TXV bulb;
C. Carefully remove the insulation from around the sensor area;
D. Using a highly-accurate, surface-mount thermometer, attach the thermometer probe to
the suction line immediately adjacent to the Defrost Sensor. After the thermometer probe
is securely attached to the suction line, reinstall the insulation foam around the sensor;
E. With foam insulation and unit front panel reinstalled, restart unit, allowing it to run for
10-minutes … Suction line temperature should have stabilized at this point…Note
suction line temperature as measures by the thermometer probe;
F. Follow the steps “1A.” through “1D.” above, to enter the service menu. Once [dEL] is
displayed, press the Pool / Spa key four times to display [dSC] (Defrost Sensor
Calibration). With the service menu parameter [dSC] (Defrost Sensor Calibration)
displayed pressing the Up ⇑ or Down ⇓ arrow key once will display the current
temperature value of the Defrost Sensor.
G. Compare the control’s displayed defrost sensor temperature with the reading on the
thermometer. If the readings are the same, or within 1° F, no calibration is necessary. If
the temperatures differ 2 to 3° F, calibration is necessary. Using the Up ⇑ or Down ⇓
Arrow keys, adjust the display temperature to read the same as the reference
thermometer. The control can be adjusted to + 10° or - 10° from the displayed
temperature. However, offset calibrations greater than 3° should be avoided…Such
large offsets generally indicate problems with the method of suction line temperature
measurement, a defrost sensor not properly attached to the suction line, or other
equipment issues. Do NOT attempt to mask such issues through offset calibration.
H. Once the correct temperature value has been selected pressing the Pool / Spa key will
save the selected temperature and step to the next menu parameter [dB1] (Dead Band
Differential).
6. Dead Band Differential [dB1] …
The dead band differential determines the number of degrees that water temperature must fall
before the thermostat closes again. The dead band is factory set @ .8°. It is highly
recommended the factory default of .8 remain, however, if for some reason the dead band
requires adjustment, follow the steps outlined below:
A. Follow the steps “1A.” through “1D.” above to enter the service menu. Once [dEL] is
displayed, press the Pool / Spa key five times to display [dB1] (Dead Band Differential).
B. With the service menu parameter [dB1] (Dead Band Differential) displayed, pressing the
Up ⇑ or Down ⇓ arrow key will change the dead band differential from 0.2° to 2.0°, in
.2° increments.
C. Once the desired dead band difference is displayed, pressing the Pool / Spa key will save
the currently displayed value and step to the top of the service menu [dEL] (4 Minute
Time Delay).
NOTE: To exit the service menu, not depressing any keys for 15 seconds will
automatically exit the service menu and resume normal operation.

7. Changing Service Lock Code & “Backdoor” Entry…
A. Changing the Code…
The factory default Service Lock Code is “50”. Service personnel are strongly advised
to retain the factory default setting. However, should unauthorized access to the Level-2
(Service) menu be suspected, it may be useful to select a code other than “50”. To
change the Service Lock Code:
1) Enter the service menu level by depressing and holding both the Up ⇑ and Down
⇓ arrow keys simultaneously. Continue to hold keys until the code message:
[CF1] (Celsius Fahrenheit Selection) is displayed;
2) Depress the Pool / Spa key four times… [LOC] (Entrance To Service Menu) will
display;
3) Using the Up ⇑ arrow key, scroll the displayed number to [050] (or the correct,
current code). Note: It may be necessary to double press the arrow key to begin
scrolling;
4) Once the correct service code number is displayed, press the Pool / Spa key to
access the service menu;
5) The first service parameter displayed will be [dEL] (4- minute time delay). Press
the Pool / Spa key six times until the [LOC] (Service Lock Code Entry) is
displayed. By pressing the Pool / Spa key once, the actual, current [LOC] code
will be displayed;
6) At this point, the[LOC] code can be changed from the Factory Setting of [050],
or from whatever the correct setting is, to any number ranging [000] to [999]. It
is recommended, however, unless attempting to prevent tampering, that the
factory setting of: “50” remain in use.
B. “Backdoor” Access (for use when correct Service Lock Code is unknown)…
The following procedure can be used to gain access to the service menu of a unit even
though the current, correct Service Lock Code is unknown. Once access has been
gained, work can be performed within the service menu, and the code may be left as is,
changed back to the factory default setting of: “50”, or the code may be set to any
number ranging [000] to [999]. Unless attempting to prevent tampering, the factory
code setting “50” is recommended:
1) Turn off electrical power to heater …
2) Simultaneously push and hold down both arrow keys;
3) Turn the power back on…
Note:
If, due to physical site restraints or lack of an assistant, the line-voltage electrical
power cannot be turned back on while maintaining the two arrows held down, 24
volt power on the microprocessor board can, instead, be interrupted (by
disconnecting one of the two 24-Volt connections to the controller).

TROUBLESHOOTING
The heat pump microprocessor control in is designed to be self-diagnostic through the use of
various fault codes displayed in the event of a problem. If you believe you are experiencing a
problem with the heater, and need to call for service, it will be beneficial to let the telephone
representative know which code is displayed. This information will allow the service
personal to better understand the problem when responding to the call. Listed on the
following page is list of all fault messages- and what they mean- along with possible causes
and solutions for the error.

DEFROST CYCLE OPERATION:
The Microprocessor Control monitors the heater’s air-coil temperature, minimizing air-coil
freeze-up during cooler weather conditions. Should the control sense air-coil temperatures
conducive to making ice, the heater’s compressor operation is interrupted while the fan is
allowed to continue in operation. With the compressor off, the air coil begins to warm to the
surrounding air temperature. As air-coil temperatures rise above approximately 38° F, the
compressor is restarted and heating resumes. In the event air temperatures remain below
approximately 38° F, the compressor will remain off until the air temperature rises above
approximately 38° F. Heating of water will not be taking place as long as the compressor
remains off.

Installing a Call Flex Kit
Appendix- D
Installing a Call Flex Kit
for
Time Clock Management - Heaters Equipped With HP7 Microprocessor
The CALL-FLEX is installed to manage the time clock to the desired heating style of the pool heat
pump owner. With CALL-FLEX, owners select one of three heat modes:
Call Mode
The heater "overrides" the filter pump timer when the pool water drops below the
temperature set point. Two hours after the initial thermostat "call" for heat, the
heater starts. This delay prevents nuisance pool pump cycling.
In CALL MODE, the heater will operate mostly at night when the greatest heat loss
occurs and the heater is least effective. If the owner prefers daytime operation,
the FLEX MODE may be more productive.
Flex Mode
The heater "extends" the heating hours beyond the timer settings. If the heater is
not running when the time clock expires, the pool pump will remain off until the
next timed cycle. If running, it continues the pool and heater operation until the
set point is attained, then stays off until the next timed cycle.
The FLEX MODE is very convenient after cold snaps, if the blanket was left off the
pool, or at initial start-up when the heater must run beyond standard filtering hours to
elevate the pool temperature.
Off Mode
Operation is controlled by the time clock.
