Question about Pentair Mastertemp Heater
Whenever we turn on our pool heater, there is a smell coming from the heater that smells like gas. The gas company has determined it to be unused gas, not a leak. The pool company that installed the pool orders mastertemp heaters set up for lg and then if you want ng, you have to have it converted - this was done by the gas company when it was installed. Well, that's what they said was done. Why do we have this smell?

Ask the gas company for the conversion kit part part number they used.

This is an ignition flame falure code. Could be you don't have gas getting to the pilot, no spark to ignite the pilot or your ignition is not reading the flame. Sorry to say but it's probally time to get the pool guy out to look at it. Good luck.

SOURCE: heater cycles on / off
This could be a water flo problem. you need to chech to be sure your by-pass valve is closed down enough to force water threw heater, There is a internal by-pass that could be a problem also, or a bad pressure switch. If the by-pass isn't the problem then you should check these also.

This reminds me of some of the High temp sensors ive replaced. I would start with checking the pumps flow to the heater. Make sure there are no abstructions and at least 35 GPM (gallons per minute) running to the heater. If your flow is too low, you will trip the high limit sensor after a short while.
This could also mean you need to clean out the heat exchanger. When an exchanger gets dirty, it blocks the flow of water, slowing it down and "super heating" itdue to the water being in contact with the exchanger for too long. This will also trip the high limit and call for service.
If both the above items check out, contact me @ firstname.lastname@example.org and I will guide you further.

This sounds like the flame rectifier (flame sensor) Below is a link to the manual to trace the part and also to get the part number.
