Question about Sta Rite Sr200lp Max E Therm Pool & Spa Heater Dual Electronic Ignition Lo Nox 200,000 Btu Propane Gas
The motor is running. it displays the current water temp. have to press the up arrow really hard to get heater to turn on. sudden whoosh of air is heard. good cycling sound. air rushing out at exhaust on pack of heater. however, after 1-2 min. the heater shuts off. the current temp. of the pool water continues to be displayed and even shows a slightly higher temp as the afternoon sun warms it naturally. so I know at least the thermostat seems to be working.

It is probably your thermistor. It is screwed into the header (the place where the pipes come out). To know for sure you would have ohm it out (I am not sure of the ohms of this particular model). If it ohms out ok then it could be the control board.

I am not sure if you have solved this issue, or not, but here is one idea. When you turn on the heater, it is reading the temp at 125/126 correct? IF this is what the heater is reading, then the problem is the Thermistor,or temp sensor, and is very easy to replace.
If you have an Owner's Manual, there are part numbers and instructions on how to replace the Thermistor. If you do not have one, follow the link below and it will take you to one online:

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.

Anytime the heater is reading the water temp to be above what it actually is, especially 126, the problem is the Thermistor, or Temp Sensor, for the heater. This is a very easy part to replace. The Thermistor is located on the manifold, on the left side, between the top two bolts.
Sorry this is a late response! Hope that it helps!

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