SOURCE: 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....

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.
