Pool Heater. Hayward H100ID Starts fine and heats for about 5 minutes. Then heat stops. You can feel the blower its just cold air.


It sounds like your pool heater is not firing. I would check several things: the burner might be blocked and clogged, the gas valve might need to be replaced, the direct spark module might be malfunctioning, or the combustion blower might be cleaned. One of these is probably the issue. A service man can repair all of these problems.

Sta Rite SR400 NG heater with code r=5


You can find an Owner's Manual online at the following site:

http://www.inyopools.com/owners_manual/sta-rite_heaters_max-e-therm.pdf

IF you have tried to restart the heater and received the same outcome, the r5, or S, is a badk control board. Sorry about that one!

What you may want to try is resetting the heater. You will need to put the SunTouch in the maintenance mode. Then turn off the heater, turn off the Circuit Breaker for the heater, wait about 15 to 20 minutes, then reverse the order. Circuit breaker, then heater, then try and start the heater without the SunTouch first. If it works, then try with the SunTouch.

Sta-rite propane heater turns on, blower on but it doesn't fire


There can be a couple of reasons for this issue to occur. The first thing to check is the dsplay panel for which Service light is coming on. If it is the Service System light, then there is not enough flow of water in the system. You may need to clean your filter.

If it is the Service Heater light, then the problem is with the heater. What you can do is restart the heater and watch the display panel. If the water temp display is too high, or low, then the issue is the Thermister and it will need to be replaced. If the temps are about the same, then try and start the heater. The same issue may happen again, but that is what you actually want to happen. Once this does, take off the top two halves of the heater and turn the display panel over. There are diagnostic lights on the backside of the panel.

If there is a red light next to one of the following: AGS, AFS,
SFS, HLS, PS or THERMISTOR, then that is the item causing the problem with the heater. If you need an Owner's Manual, there is one online at the following link:

Pool heater runs but the air coming out of the unit is cold.


R3 is not one of the actual error codes, but is part of the computer system. What you can try to do is reset the computer in the heater. First you will need to turn the heater off, then turn off the circuit breaker for the heater. Wait about 15 to 20 minutes then reverse the order, the circut breaker then the heater. Try and start the heater and watch the display panel.

If they R3 reappears, then the problem is the control board for the heater and it will need to be replaced.

When power to heater turned on r3 is displayed


Sounds like low water flow. Is there a manual bypass that may be open? If not, thermal regulator may be bad, or worst case scenario, heat exchanger is blocked due to imbalance of ph/alkalinity in pool water. Good luck.
