SOURCE: Sta Rite Sr333na Max E Therm Pool & Spa Heater gauge stuck?

Anytime the heater is reading the water temp to be above what it actually is, especially 126, the problem is the Thermistor, or Temp Sensor, for the heater. This is a very easy part to replace. The Thermistor is located on the manifold, on the left side, between the top two bolts.

Sorry this is a late response! Hope that it helps!

SOURCE: my spa heater is saying the spa is 126 degrees so

Use a thermometer to check the actual temp of the water to see if the units temp probe is accurate. Also what is the max temp allowed by the spas safety program...owners manual.

SOURCE: Water Temprature read 126 on heater and will not Fire

This is a problem with your thermister (heat sensor) You will find this on the left side of the water manifold about half way down. I'm not sure but I think it is a small tube that slides into the manifold and if you follow the wires back to the board it just plugs in. The part is reasonable priced for a heater part and very easy to install. Good luck.

You didn't indicate exatctly which model you have. But on most the AO error code is :Blower vacuum switch

Pentair mastertemp 250 heater showing 126


I don't think that 126 is an error code but more likely it's showing that as the temperature.

A new temperature probe will probably be the fix.

Pentair Master Temp Heater is not heating and reading 126


Definitely bad thermistor Pentair reps have seen this happen a lot. Lick finger and touch the two contacts where the thermistor plugs in it should fire up if it's a bad thermistor. If you do an ohm reading you'll find that the ohms do not correlate with the temperature that's displayed. I just trouble shot one and I'm getting 51.2 ohms which equates to 10 - 20 degrees Fahrenheit which is obviously not what is being displayed because it's 126 which is a common number that's displayed when a thermistor is not reading properly

The heater won't start. The temp reading is 126 F all the time. The thermistor resistance changes with temp change. No diagnostic lights are on. Does it need a control board or is there another test?


Mine is doing the same. StaRite/Pentair tech support says the thermister needs to be replaced. I have one on order and will update on my status when I get the part replaced.

Sta-rite heater error code 126


The 126 is not an error code, but it maybe the temp of the water that the heater is reading. If the heater thinks the water is 126 degrees, it will not start at all.

If the heater is reading the wrong water temp, the problem is the Thermister, which is the sensor that is suppose to read the water temp. You will need to replace this sensor in order to correct the problem with the heater. It is really easy to do!

If you have a manual for the heater, if you go to the Replacement Parts Listing for the Electrical System, page 53 in the online version, the Thermistor is Item #9. It goes into the left side of the manifold in the to place, between the first two manifold bolts.

Error code 126


This is a bad thermister or heat sensor. It mounts in your water manifold and if it goes bad no error will show. The bad sensor is telling the heater that the water is to hot and it wont let the heater fire. This is a farley inexpensive part and easy to change out. With a new one it should read the proper temp and call for heat then fire the heater. Good luck.
