Heater must have water before it will fire up. There is a delay relay that may be dozing off. Not a bad thing but should be chk'd by a pool sevice.

Upon start heater comes on for about 5 seconds and shuts down. Then starts again and stops again, and so on. "PRS" appears


PRS means the pressure switch is opening and shutting off the heater as you describe. Either your filter and/or inlet baskets need a good cleaning or the pressure switch in the heater is failing. Try a thorough cleaning first and then replace the pressure switch if necessary.

Heater Wont light


If it has been off for a while you probally just have to bleed the gas line out. Shut off the gas valve at the heater and then open the union at the heater. Turn the gas back on till you can smell gas. Shut it down and close the union then turn the gas back on and try it again.

I think your impeller may be stuck OR your start capacitor has failed. Your pump is going off on over load because it cannot turn or cannot start.

How do you start the heater for the first time in the spring?I don't know where to begin. The pool pump is on and working.


Make sure all gas is on to the heater and the gas valve inside the heater. Be sure all winterize plugs are in place and tight then make sure all valves are letting flow to the heater. If the heater won't start at this point be sure you have enough gas if it is LP. You need at least 30% in the tanks to get the heater to fire. Then you will have a shut off valve just outside the heater. Shut this off and you will fine a union near this, crack the union open and turn the gas back on for a few seconds till you smell gas then shut off and tighten the union back up. let it sit for 15 or 20 min. to let the gas clear then try again. If it still won't start it may be time for a repairman. I hope this helps, good luck.

My Hayward Super II Pool Pump isn't priming. The motor will start, and hum for a few seconds but then it just shuts off. The motor will try again after a minute or two only to shut off again. The cycle...


Pull the six bolts on the back of the pump and pull the motor and pump housing back. remove the difuser and try spinning the impeller. If it wont spin you may need a new motor. If you pull the wires. You can find a motor shop in your phone book and they can rebuild it for you usually for about 100 bucks. Or replace it with new for a lot cheaper than what your talking. Good luck.

New hayward 1 HP super pump runs 1 or 2 seconds, then shuts off. After 1 or 2 minutes, will come on for 1 or 2 seconds, then shuts off again


Check that the motor is set for the proper voltage. They are usually factory connected for 230V and if you have a 115V line feeding it the motor will overheat and cycle the overload as you describe.

Service light on


I just had the same problem resolved, my mastertemp 400 would run up the temp to 82F and then cutoff, the service light flashes and then 50 seconds later the heater would restart and run for 2 minnutesbefore shutting down again and relighting in 50 seconds. Repeating until the temp setting is reached.

I had the pool guy out 3 times until he found a bad thermal regulator valve (kit #77707-0010). Once replaced the heater runs great.

He told me that it's my pool chemestry that is to blame, I had it checked (like I do weekely by me and monthly by the pool supply store) and it perfect??? I'm now questioning what caused the corroson and stop it from coming back?

I hope tis helps.
