I have an older Viking spa that the heater, which was working perfect, just quit. I am experienced with electrical, so I got out my toolbox and dvom and found an open heater element. Replaced the element and refilled the tub, still no heat. With the spa running in standard mode, no trouble codes, I tested at the element, no power. I checked the fuses, all good.
When I had removed the old element, I noticed it was broken at one of the terminals (thus the open circuit). Could it have shorted and damaged the control board, or is there a reset on it that I am missing?

Does this spa have an indicator on the topside that comes on when it is heating? If so is that indicator coming on? I want to make sure it is not something else causing it like a sensor or flow issue. If it has an indicator light or symbol and that is on with no power going to heater then your circuit board has failed. If that light or symbol is not coming on when it should be heating you may have a flow issue (clogged filter) or pump not pushing enough water through the heater or your temperature sensor may be faulty.
