It may be the spark plug (or the ignition module). On my Reddy Heater 50K BTU, there are six metal screws that join the top of torpedo tube to the bottom. Remove these,and the top of the tube casing. The spark plug should be in plain sight.

Turn the unit on and look for spark. If it's not firing, replace the plug. If it still doesn't fire, you may need to replace the ignition module (it's what is "connected to the spark plug via the fat ignition wire.")

Hope this helps,

Pilot won't stay on


Burners don't have anything to do with the problem of pilot not lighting. Is the problem that flame will not 'stay' lit? Or you can't even get a flame to ignite? If former: possible bad pilot generator or bad gas valve. If latter, possible bad gas valve or no fuel to ignite.

Check your fuel lines and most models have a fuel filter in line. A few things come to mind one how old is the fuel? Check the screen in the nozzle assembly by removing nozzle it sits directly behind the nozzle, these corrode and affect fuel flow. While you have this tore down clean the fire-eye with windex and terry cloth rag, it may not be seeing the flame. Check the air filter at the back of the heater as well. These are common problems with these heaters.

Pool heater will not stay lit


check your ignition status. if you have a pilot ,make sure its lit. if you have a glo ignitor, make sure its glowing when you turn on the heater. sometimes it will glow but it might be hot enough to open the gas valve. also be sure to check your gas supply and make sure you are getting fuel to the unit.your heater will not turn on if your pool filter mode is enabled.
