    I found a solution that worked on an online suggested that resetting just at the pool panel might not work unless you first power down the complete power at the main house panel. Wait a minute and turn the power back on, then go to the pool panel and reset the system and remote. Instructions to reset communication are in the user manual. Several tries at resetting did not work until the main power was shut off. This solved the problem.

Your power center outside has to be "trained" again so it and the remote recognize each other. I don't have the charts in front of me but check your manual or one online. It's fairly simple to do.
If that still doesn't work, the problem may be with either the remote or the power center. Good luck with it.

    This worked for me, too. The key was that the power had to be cycled and then comms retrained. My unit had stopped COMMS after a power brownout.

SOURCE: Pentair Mini-Max NT Pool Heater does not get very hot

The thermistor is a common failure on this heater. With a setting of 104 and the heater shutting off early, the sensor is bad. If you have a digital display, check the water temp with a thermometer and compare that ot the display. Odds are that they are different. The thermistor plugs into the back of the thermostat board and is a thin whire wire set or thibker yellow wire. The white wire sensors are old and most have fialed by now.

Make sure the battery is placed underneath the small copper clip (positive lead) inside, else the circuit isn't complete. It's pretty easy to clothes the battery casing with it above the lead and not even notice it.

Are there wires connected to the back of this unit?

If so, some have come unconnected at either the in home unit or at the power center on the outside at the pool equipment. On the inside of the door of the power center there is a wiring diagram that shows the proper wiring of the control unit. I believe it is from left to right: Black yellow green red. The black and red are power wires if they were disconnected you would have no display. The green and yellow are the data wires. One of these has come loose.

If you have a mobile wireless unit then you must go to your owners manual and follow the directions to reset the address of the mobile unit. If you don't have the manual you can download it at

Good luck and please vote for me!
