SOURCE: pool heater

If the heater fails to ignite after three attempts, the heater will automatically go into Lock Out. This is a safety feature on the heater.

Things for you to look at to see what is causing the problem are the display panel and diagnostic lights. When you turn on the heater, is it reading the correct water temp? If not, the Thermister has gone bad and will need to be replaced. When you try to start the heater, is there an Error Code displayed? Which of the Service Lights are coming on when the heater will not light? If it is the Serivce System, that is usually low flow of water. You may have a dirty filter, skimmer or pump basket full of debris, or a valve not completely open.

If the Service System light is the one coming on, then you will need to take off the top two halves of the heater and turn over the Display Panel. There are diagnostic lights on the back side of the panel. There may be a red light next to any of the following:

AGS, AFS, SFS, HLS, PS or THERMISTOR

If there is a red light next to one of these, then that is what has malfunctioned. If you need an Owner's Manual for the heater, you can find one online at the following link:

SOURCE: Sta-rite heater error code 126

The 126 is not an error code, but it maybe the temp of the water that the heater is reading. If the heater thinks the water is 126 degrees, it will not start at all.

If the heater is reading the wrong water temp, the problem is the Thermister, which is the sensor that is suppose to read the water temp. You will need to replace this sensor in order to correct the problem with the heater. It is really easy to do!

If you have a manual for the heater, if you go to the Replacement Parts Listing for the Electrical System, page 53 in the online version, the Thermistor is Item #9. It goes into the left side of the manifold in the to place, between the first two manifold bolts.

SOURCE: sta rite 400na gives error code 05 after about 30 seconds

I am not sure if you have received an answer to the issue, or not, but just in case! An EO5 error code is an open stack flue sensor, or switch, There are two forms of the stack flue sensor, so you will need to know which one you have on the heater.

What this error code means is that the sensor "read" the flue temp to be over 500 degrees. Usually, it is just gone bad and reading the wrong temp.

SOURCE: 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.

Shows r 5 code when power is turned on. sta-rite


The R5 is a sequence code in the boot up sequence where your error is occuring. There is nothing in the users manual for these pool heaters that explains this error. Your best bet, unfortunately, is going to be to call Sta Rite. Here is their customer service number: 1-800-831-7133

I have two error codes: 180/R9 anlong with 128/R8 HELP!


Error pertains to stack flue sensor setting.
There are two modes for low level programming and default is a (0) Zero but for outdoor spas this must be reset to a one ( 1 )
Just hold the off button down for 30 seconds let up, press down again, use arrow buttons on key pad to set from 0 to 1...press off again....play with it and see for yourself...I don't now why Sta-rite buries this information and makes us guess.

Again, on mine, this all pertains to the Stack Flue Sensor setting.... you can look at your heater and see what they look like...outside toward bottom the SF must be a 1 and not Zero or you get the quick flash 128-R8 notice...also, the Stack flue senor is finicky and connections must be good...use steal wool to re-seat but be careful as connector break off easily thus requiring a new stack flue sensor...
I accidentally discovered this when I turned the board upside down and spotted the LED red light on indicating a fault with the SFS**

I wish some one would tell us how to by-pass the stack flue sensor to make the heater work.
Good luck...hopefully the power button is close by and your board is working....
