Cannot screw in plugs on side of Laars Lite 2 Pool Heater

The screw (plug) looks to be in decent shape. When I try to screw it in, it will not "catch". I have spent several hours on this and now am ready to throw in the towel.

I just had the exact problem. Went to a plumbing supply house and got a 1/4"NPT pipe tap for about $10 and a 1/4" brass pipe plug. Put some oil on the tap and very carefully clear the threads by threading it into the hole. Make sure it is straight and engaged with the threads. Once started run it in by hand until it stops and then get a small wrench and turn it about a half turn and then back a quarter turn for a couple of full turns and then remove. Inset the new brass plug

This did the trick for me, good luck.

Need to know where the electric supply goes in on the teledene laars epg-175

About two thirds down the right side of the heater. Inside the ignition control will have one screw that holds the mounting plate in place then it will swing out on hinges and all your wireing will be done behind it.

Old pool/spa heater

Most parts are not avalible. $3600 is a good investment on a house you are selling. If the pool/spa is in good shape the heater would be a plus and a tax break. We bought our house because of all new appliances.
