Make sure the pilot light stays on. look for a reset button which could be an overheat stat tripped. check to see if the thermostat is set up above the pool temperature.

Why won't the pilot light stay lit?


You have a "pilot generator" that sits in the flame of the pilot light. This generates a low voltage output from the flame of the pilot light. This voltage goes to the gas valve and tells the valve that the pilot is lit and to keep the pilot gas line open.
In almost all cases replacing the pilot generator will resolve the issue . They run about $60-$75.
Other causes may be the gas valve itself or a short in the safety loop, in either case should be looked at by a pool tech.

Pool heater sparks but does not light up


coud be several things, Do you have Gas and is gas toruned on. Is valve on. The Pilot could be dirty and need cleaned. $350+ sounds reallly pricy for a pilot assembly. Call your Gas Company and get an Estimate and a Qualifed Service tech. You may try turning Off the Power to the Heater Unit and turning it back on , and then trying to turn on heater again, So times after several atemps the valve will lock out and the power needs reset on Propane units.

We had a power outage. now the spk keeps buzzing but furnace wont start. There is flame at the pilot, I can see it. But it won't start the main heater. eventually the PLT message comes on.


The 'thermocouple' might not be working. Is the pilot light staying lit? The therm. sends a millivolt signal to the control insuring a pilot is lit.

Millivolt pool heater will not ignite


Most heaters do not require power for the pilot to remain lit. Is there power at he unit? If it worked yesterday and not today has anyone turned it off at the circuit breaker? If you have power turn the gas valve off for 10 minuets and then relight to see if it needed a reset.

Pilot light wont lit up


Change The Thermostat Cause If Your Getting Gas But The Water Heater Doesn't Detect The Heat It Will Close The Valve. When Lighting You Hold The Button Down For About 30 seconds so the thermostat will detect flame and stay lit. Check To Make Sure The Thermostat Is Where It Should Be. Heres A Picture Of What It Will Look Like.
