I too had intermittant problems with the flame sensor. After cleaning it worked (for a while), I also did the dielectric grease & it worked (for a while). then as I was looking at it in search of a part# I noticed the wire would slide in and out of the sensor 1/16" to 1/8" and found that if I pushed it inward it worked. So I removed it again slid the wire out that little bit applied a drop of super glue, pushed it in and held it in place for a minute. It works. I ordered the new part but when I install it this one will be hanging on a nail on the wall behind the boiler just in case.

I just had the same problem. The sensor is a simple device so there's not much that can go wrong with it. My solution was simple. Put some dielectric grease on the wire connection (black wire from sensor to control panel connector). This will stop further corrosion and improve the electrical connectivity. Also, I noticed my sensor wire was sitting too low over the flame probably keeping it from getting hot enough. I pushed the wire up 1/8" - 1/4" to place it higher in the flame. When I fired it up, the sensor worked fine and the burner kept running. Most electrical problems occur at the connections so make sure yours is clean and get some dielectric grease from Radio Shack. This is a 5 minute fix for anyone with fingers, over the age of 18.

* Please use common sense and set the heater to off before you do anything with the door removed. Unless you would like to remove all of the hair on your head in a fraction of a second.

Cheers.

HF code on hayward 200fdn pool heater?replaced gas valve still have same code.What now?


HF
Flame present with gas valve "OFF" error
If flame is sensed with the gas valve off the control will go into lockout. The blower will run until error condition is corrected. When corrected, control will run blower for 5 s then automatically restart after 2 minutes.
the error might be caused by a faulty flame sensor. i have heard of this happening the other way (carbon blocks sensor causing no ignite)

Minimax NT Heater will not fire. Everything about the unit seems to be running fine but it simply will not fire. The blower continues to run even though it does not light. No error codes are shown....


Check the limit switch. It may be stuck open. TAP the cover with a screwdriver. If the unit starts, the limit will be the problem. You should also check the flame sensor. The unit may try to start but the flame sensor doesn't see the flame, the unit shuts off..Good luck...Lee

Same Problem how do you replace or check sensor


The flame sensor is easly replaced, but easier to just clean. Only use steel wool never sand paper to clean a flame sensor. Post the exact model and I will publish the manual on my company website and post the link for you to download, print, etc.
