Pentair Minimax 250 does not light everytime

I have a Pentair minimax 250 natural gas spa heater that does not ignite right away sometimes. You can hear the spark of the igniter but the burners don't light. When it does inot gnite right away it eventually lights with a small explosion that blows the access door off. I have cleaned the burner orifices and had a service technician visit but the problem didn't happen while he was here.

Pentair 472604 Igniter Replacement MiniMax NT STD Pool and Spa Heater

The ignitor is simple to replace, It is either a spark ignitor or a Hot surface ignitor. The above link will take you to a picture of the Hot surface ignitor, it is normal held onto the bottom of the burner tray, at right about the middle, by 1 or 2 sheet metal screws.

If a Spark style ignitor/electrode, then the bottom link is the one want to look at. Again, held in place the same way as above description.

Pentair minimax nt explosive ignition


Problem is an obstructed gas oriface. The burners light from the burner closest to the pilot assembly out like a dominoe effect. The explosion is because the gas has to make its way over to the pilot from a further burner thus filling the firebox full of gas before it ignites. This blockage is most commonly from a spider web inside the oriface itself. Pull the burner tray, remove the orifaces from the tray and look through each one cleaning them out with a toothpick from the backside. The orifaces should be threaded on the gas line coming off the gas valve (looks like a silver box inside the front panel)

Can a Pentair minimax NT that is fitted for natural gas be retrofitted for Propane use


Probally the easyest convertion on the market. Where your gas line comes in the heater the line loops up over and down. There are two unions on this at the base of the loop. take these apart and their is a washer in one and you replace it with the Propane washer and put back together.

Jet size differnce from natural gas to bottled


You will need more then new orifices to convert from natural gas to propane. The gas valve will also need to be replaced. Not a good idea converting heater.

New ignitor..still won't light


Clean out the pilot assemby or replace it. It is probably blocked by rust and/or spiders and is not letting enough gas (if any) through.
