How do I adjust the pressure switch on my hayward h250 heater

The purpose of the pressure switch is to verify the pool pump is operating properly and water pressure is present in the heating chamber. When water pressure is not present, the heater control system is designed to not allow initiation of flame. The pressure switch is preset at the factory for deck level installations. When the heater is located below the level of the spa or pool, the pressure switch may require an adjustment to compensate for the no-flow static head.

CAUTION: The Hayward Pool Heater is essentially a furnace. A trained technician should be consulted to repair it. DO NOT OPERATE the Hayward Pool Heater without a properly functioning and calibrated water pressure switch. The pressure switch adjustment requires both the pool pump and the heater be operational. As a result, extreme caution should be used during this procedure since sources of energy can not be isolated during the procedure.

The following procedure is recommended to calibrate the pressure switch.

1. The water pressure switch is located behind the front service panel. The pressure switch is typically on the left side, above the burners.
2. Be sure the water filter is clean before making the adjustment.
3. With the pump and heater system switch on, carefully turn the pressure switch adjustment dial clockwise, until a click is heard from the gas valve.
4. Turn the adjustment dial counterclockwise 1/4 turn.
5. Turn the pump off and on several times. The heater should shut off immediately when the pump is shut off. If the heater fails to shut down when the pump is off, repeat the steps above until the pressure switch is properly adjusted.
6. If the adjustment process fails to produce proper results the pressure switch should be replaced.

I have a Dewault D55141 air compressor that runs to 150 lbs of pressure and blows the valve and releases air. I read your reply to same problem about cut out pressure adjustment

Looking at your manual, instead of the actual item since I don't have one, I see 312, 329 and 314. It is possible that 312 the switch is shorted causing the pump to run to pop off and beyond. Item 14 is the pop off valve and if the numbers indicate anything, it is a 175 PSI pop off and is going off early. The switch doesn't have any indication of pressure rating.

The screw and bracket that mounts on the switch may be a pressure adjustment but hard to tell remotely.

Some units like this don't have adjustments, they just pump to a predetermined pressure and stop, being determined by the pressure switch and if the switch fails, a pop off will prevent over-pressuring the tank or system.

If you determine that the screw and bracket do not make an adjustable pressure switch, replace the switch with a like on or one that you can adjust in the range you need. Also if the pop off is going off early, replace or if possible, clean it, they can become dirty with rust.

Is possible that the screw fell out of the pressure switch rendering it "broken" until you put it back in....

Motor cuts off before reaching 125 psi

Im guessing this is a recip (piston Compressor) Sounds like your pressure switch may have adjusted itself by vibration. Take the cover off the pressure switch, there should be 1 or 2 screws on the top, one adjusts the pressure, the other adjusts the differential pressure (There may just be one) turn the pressure screw in the direction of the +, you need to do trial and error on this, turn it 1/4 of a turn, then switch on, see what the pressure gets to, then switch off, drain some air off, then adjust as necessary until you get your required pressure. Hope that helps

My compressor comes up to 150 pounds and when it supposed to go to cycle mode it tries to pump again and get stuck between the two modes. it goes cylcle pump cylce pump.

The pressure switch will usually not let the compessor cut back in untill the pressure drops about 20 psi from cut-out pressure. This differntial can be adjusted by turning the differential adjustment screw. I would check that the switch is not faulty first. Look for switch model number under the cover and look for factory cut-out pressure. If the pressure range is different from factory specs, suspect switch is failing, or someone has tried to adjust the pressure. Dont take a chance with possible faulty switch on this expensive compressor. Switch is adjustable but you can replace for about $50. Good luck

How do i adjust air pressure cut out

Square d recommends that the pressure switch be adjusted to specifications of the particular switch (which is sold in pressure ranges preset at the factory). The switch will be erratic it adjusted out of the factory setting range.
From Square D: (adjust the desired cut-in pressure first, then cut-out)
Cut-in: The large spring controls the cut-in pressure. To make adjustments, turn the nut clockwise (compressing the spring) to raise the cut-in point or counterclockwise to lower the point of cut-in.
Cut-out: The small spring is the differential adjustment and controls the cut-out pressure. To raise the cut-out pressure turn the small nut clockwise (more differential); to lower the cut-out pressure turn counterclockwise.

Heater is new, installed at grade on above ground pool that is 48" deep so pressure switch is 3' below the water line. With pressure switch adjustment turned fully clockwise the heater will run without the...

Adjust the switch fully in the opposite direction. If you are at 1.5 you are at the light end of the adjustment range of that switch, which can be adjusted up to 5psi. Then let it back off until it works reliably. Rarely do you need to adjust a pressure switch on an above ground pool so it should end up about in the middle of the adjustment scale.
