Here is a copy of the users manual for these pool heaters. There is a lot that could need to be adjusted or fixed if it is just not coming on at all. Try the troubleshooting guide.

What type of heater is this, millivolt or electronic, is there a standing pilot if so will pilot stay lit, if pilot does not light you may have an obstruction in it which needs to be cleaned.
as well as checking gas orifices for blockage

If you have a by-pass valve be sure it is closed or almost closed. Also check your baskets and clean your filter. All of these will give the heater low pressure and keep it from running.

This heater wont start if the pressure switch is bad or clogged. Remove the pressure switch and clean it out really well, or just purchase a new one. It should only be $30-$50 depending on where you go to get it

It wont start

If you nothing is coming through and you have a full cylinder first check the regulator is working OK, just take the hose off and turn the cylinder on for 2 seconds (do not light it). Next check the fuel pipe is clear, if OK check for a leak, to do a leakage test see patio heater problem solving page. If that is OK check you have a spark and the lead is not shorting out. If the pilots lights but goes out then try changing the thermocouple.

Heater c0mes on but turns off after a minute, sometimes longer. Light flashes flameturn off switch, let sit and will run alittle longer.

Remove the top cover, check for infestation of stinkbugs while sitting idle over the summer. Remove them and that may solve your problem. It worked for me!
