If you have changed the filter, and the light stays on then you need to let the system stay down for 24 hours without running. Also go ahead and check the vent cap on the outside of the unit. The light will go awaa by itself if you need to use the system

    Same exact thing happened to me. Everything is clean inside and out. We unplugged it for 24 hours. Plugged it back in just now. It ran for 10 minutes and the filter light beeped and keeps blinking again!

Pool heater says lo


Say "lo back! Sorry about that. Can you give me a little more info about indications? Has the filter been cleaned lately? A dirty filter often will restrict the water flow enough to where the heater thinks that the pump is not running.
If there is doubt jump the pressure switch inside the heater and if it fires you have a dirty filter or a bad pressure switch.

Missfire on my vw golf gls 2001 on the 2 cylinders is it spark plugs and wires?? The check engine light is on and my air doesnt work could it use gas to make it work ?? Also when im driving my oil...


i'll answer based on the importance of the problem:

1. oil light.
make sure that your oil level is correct. you can check it by removing your dip stick.

2. air is not working.
it means you have a rich mixture (meaning your engine does not have the correct air/fuel ratio). most common cause of this problem is very dirty/very old air filter. if the air filter seems ok, have your fuel injectors and air vaccuums cleaned.

3. misfires.
to check if your high tension wire(htw) is working, detach the suspected wire from the spark plug (detach the end connected to the plug only). turn on your engine. slowly move the detached wire towards the head (cylinder head) and see if there will be sparks. if there are sparks, then spark plugs is your problem

Getting FL0 error message. heater is coming on, then off with error message. my heater is a jandy lite 2 400K propane unit


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


Page 34 and 35 of your manual, found here, describe FL0 as a flow issue most likely caused by dirty filters. Depending on the type of filter you have a good cleaning/backwash will usually remedy that. It is also possible the unit's pressure switch, which senses water flow and therefore reacts to dirty filters when present, may have failed, especially if you winterize the heater in a cold climate and leave water in the switch which can burst the diaphragm inside.

Start with cleaning the filter. If the heater still won't fire jump out the pressure switch while the pump is running to confirm the part is the problem. Assuming it is replacing it with a new pressure switch which should be under $75. The part number can be found in the rear of the manual.

Hoover U5468-900 WindTunnel Supreme suction is suddenly poor


The other possibility is there is a blockage in the foot. these models have dual channel air flow (windtunnel) and become blocked when not cleaned depending on use. under the roller there is a cavity that can be removed for cleaning. a hot motor can be caused by poor air flow.

Problems with my heater


Hi

I just had the same prblem and had a gasfitter out yesterday to have a look at mine. He suggested to me to take the front panels off and use a compressor to clean out all the dust that has built up. My filters were clean as they get cleaned every week but as therinnaiguy said it is a overheat safety device.

I used my compressor and blew out all the dust it makes a fair bit of a mess but it seems to be working fine now. Just be careful when u use the air not to directly blow it around the electrical area.

There is also 2 wires u need to disconect u will see these when u take the cover off and also make sure u unplug the the power to the unit.

Hope this helps.
