Need help trouble shooting heater problem

Yes this is your Hi Limit (High Temperature) sensor.
This is a safety device so replace it.
On most DreamMaker spas the Temperature Hi Limit sensors share the same 4-Wire plug, you will have to replace both.
If your sensors have a telephone style plug you can replace the Hi Limit with out replacing the Temp sensor.

Fryer is cutting out after certain temp and tripping hi limit. I replaced Hi Limit, Thermopile and Thermostat and it worked great for two days and then kicked out again, tripped Hi Limit. I'm baffled...

Hi there
Hi limit will trip at 450F.
Check your thermostat setting, then check its calibration, this way you will be able to verify where the problem is.
If the setting and calibration of the thermostat is good, check the hi limit sensing bulb, it should not touch the fire tube because if it does, it will sense high temperature and will cause premature tripping.

Trouble light comes on, can barely read the instruction around it(faded over time)It says to push a red button but not sure where the button is. Help!!

When trouble light comes on, it indicates that the hi-limit is tripped (this happens when oil temperature exceeds 450 Fahrenheit). The red button is located at the upper back panel of the unit, give it a push to reset but if nothing happens after resetting the button, the hi-limit needs to be replaced. Also try to check if the thermostat is working, stuck thermostat's mechanical contact will cause the hi-limit to trip.

I have a 40c+ss pitco fryer.the pilot will go out at random times.Could be 1hr or 24 hrs after it is lit. The gas valve has been change, and the thermalpile has been replaced.

Check if your pilot flame sufficiently heats thermopile during operation and make sure also that it is free of soot or any form of dirt, thermopile generates small amount of electricity to energize pilot and main valve of the gas valve for pilot and main burner operation. This electricity passes through hi limit mechanical contacts. Hi limit on fryers act as safety device which will shut down pilot and burner flame when oil temperature reaches 450F.
If your fryer is set at 350F and over shoots up to 450F (which will trip hi limit and shut down pilot and burner flame), the thermostat is not good, but, if hi limit trips on temperature much lower than 450F, hi limit is bad.

My dryer will run but will not get hot. The trouble shooting guide says that on of the two house fuses in the circuit may be blown or the thermal limiter is tripped. Where are the fuses in the dryer. I...

First id make sure you have both phase of AC power coming into dryer.
Go to your house panel and reset yoru house breaker for the dryer. If in the USA the breaker should be a 240volt / 30amp breaker. It will have two breakers tied together at the trip switch.
If AC power is good at the dryer outlet then it could be one of the followings.

  1. Open Thermal limit fuse or trip switch.
  2. Open Heater Element.
  3. Control board is faulty.

Pool heater fires up and starts heating the water outflowing into the pool, but only stays warm for 5 minutes or less then cools and stops heating

You are tripping a temp limit switch. You either have a bad switch which you can jump the wire to confirm. This is a trouble shooting technic only. Jumping the wire permantly might cause bigger problems.
