Question about Pentair MINIMAX NT TSI IGNITER

2 Answers

Heater starts and then stops.

I have a pentair heater which when started the fan turns on for about 30-45 seconds and the just shuts off, we were told it was a faulty mother board. I replaced that (for a penny or two) but it still does the same thing. Any suggestions?

    I have the same issue. The heater fan starts, the burners light for a few seconds, then it shuts down. The service light comes on on the panel. I replaced the board, but it still has the same problem.

    Your lucky, I dont even get the burners to fire up. I was quoted $145/hr to look at it plus parts. all the companies I have talked to say they replace item after item till they located the deficient part. why do I know I will end up with a $1200 bill.

I will keep you posted. I have aquired all the service manuals and I am in the process of taking the heater apart. It is not the motherboard.

We had the same issue. Fan worked, gas flowed, burner glowed, but would not ignite. Heater would shut down after a few attempts and give the E04 message. Service Tech replaced the ignitor, now it works.

I have a Master Temp 250 pool heater that shows an AGS error on the back of the board. The heater runs for about 20 seconds then shuts off, any ideas?


AGS = Auto Gas Shutoff...
What is happening is the heater is monitoring (or sorta, by reasons difficult to explain here) Water Flow and Water Temperature. In this case, the AGS is triggered by a low water flow, or high Incoming Water Temp.
High internal water temp = triggered AGS.
If you have and can confirm, PROPER water flow, water temp coming into heater is Lower than 104┬░, then it is possible you have a faulty AGS.
But in most cases, it's only doing its job. Locate the reason for the fault, or why the AGS Switch turned the heater off.

Does it not shut off at all? This heater has probably been "rigged", and is extremely hazardous in this condition. Turn off the gas supply and get a pro to check it out.

My wife said the pump timed off and the heater was heating. She shut the heater off and restarted the pump and now the heater won't ignite. The red light blinks three times and I am not sure how to get it...


The fan will continue to run for a few minutes after the pump turns off to purge exhaust gasses.If it was still heating you have a problem. To reset the heater,turn off the pump breaker for 30 seconds. After that you need a repairman.

Flame wont stay lit


Sounds like a flame sensor problem. The board is not getting the proper signal from the flame sensor so it thinks the burner did not light and shuts the gas supply off. It keeps the blower operating to ensure that no gas is accumulated in the burner area. I suggest you contact a local mechanical contractor to service your heater.

Pentair Minimax NT 400 heater. fan keeps coming


Sounds like the controller is the problem. This is the circuit board that has the display and controls on it. You can swing that panel open and try tapping on the white plastic cover the controller is under that. This might get the fan relay to release but you will have to replace the controller it will stick again
