Question about Jandy Laars Lite2 Ld 400,000 Btu Heater

Laars Lite 2 LD heater - shuts off after 5 seconds

This heater is old (8+ years?) and has been neglected by former owner. Heater shuts off after 5 seconds of running (even after backwash w/good flow). After it shuts off, white smoke billows out of the top of the heater. I've let it sit for 5 minutes (following instructions on the door panel) and tried again, but the second attempt resulted in a rather violent ingition (loud noise and more white smoke).

    Sandy - Thank you. I don't see a coil on the parts list. Does it have another name or better yet, do you know the part number?

We have a laars lite 2, when we openned the pool


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

It could be...does it open up at the point the heater shuts down? Check it with a DMM to see. It is more likely an issue with flame recognition off the pilot/ignitor. Check them for rust that would cause a faulty connection.

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

Laars Teledyne Pool heater flames on for 2 seconds, shuts off


You have no flame rectification.....LLD series heaters check for a signal through the flame to ground; if the module does not detect this signal, it go through two more trials for ignition and then lock out the module. There should be a flame rod and it may need cleaning. I use steel wool.
