Standard 10K ohm sensor appears to be compromised. Replace it.
You have one for water temp, one for air temp, and one for the solar if you have one.

SOURCE: Temperature reads 125 degrees.

I am not sure if you have solved this issue, or not, but just in case. The problem is the Thermister, or temp sensor. That will need to be replaced since it is reading the water temp at 125.

The Thermister is located on the manifold, left hand side, between the first two bolts. It is pretty easy to change out and this will correct the problem.

SOURCE: Sta-rite pool heater shuts down as soon as the

Between the two water pipes on the left side of the manifold is a two inch plug. When you take this plug out the thermal regulator assembly will come with it.It consists of "O" rings, a spring and what looks like a thermostat in a car. This is the probal bad part although it could be the spring also. You can get these parts seperatly or in a kit. If this is an older heater the kit is the way to go so you get all the nessary "O" rings and you will be covered on everything you need.

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.

Your temp sensor has gone bad and will need to be replaced. It's a small tube that slides into the water manifold and you can follow the wires back to the board. Just unplug and set a new one in place.

The Led's are on the back of the display panel itself. You have to take apart the heater to see them. The most likely culprits are either a bad thermostat or bypass valve.

Have a 3.5 year old Jandy Aqualink RS 4 --- the air temp is reading correctly (78 F) but the pool temp is reading (201 F). What could this issue be? Pool sensor gone bad? If so, how do I repair or replace...


It is most likely not a bad reading on the on the display.

One culprit of a false temp reading could be:
If the temperature sensor is installed after the heater and the circulation pump is clogged or failing, this would allow super heated water to reach the temperature sensor and give you that reading. However, most pool/spa heaters have a high limit switch that would shut down the heater @ 150 degrees F. So this is also unlikely.

The most reasonable answer is to replace the temperature sensor.

If you refer to page 22 in this manual http://www.jandy-downloads.com/pdfs/Allbutton_manual.pdf
you will see that the temperature sensor is installed on terminals 5 and 6.
Trace these wires. They will goto a thermowell (which holds the temperature sensor) either in the pool plumbing, or to a temperature sensor in the heater itself. Temperature sensors when in the heater are located typically above the inlet/outlet header. There will be some disassembling required to access it in this case.
If it is in the heater and you need more help, e-mail me @ adamh@newconceptchem.com

Please take the time to give me a positive rating on this post if I have helped.

Thanks

Both of those heaters are fine I prefer the Pentair for it's smaller footprint and ease of installation as you can turn it for access to plumbing. The Hayward is tougher to turn the exchanger on and you only have right or left as options for the plumbing to come out. Sta-Rite is still my favorite for installation being easy to plumb, wire and run gas to. It's very easy to change from natural to LP also.
Most heaters today are the same in reliablity and that is mostly up to you to keep the chemicals correct. Being in the business I always look to ease of install and access for repair.

Jandy aqualin rs air temp malfunction


Check this by swapping your air sensor with your water sensor. (Just swap the plugs) if it still reads off then you may need a new board, if this reads ok then the new sensor may be bad. Good luck.

Water Temp on heater reads 126 degrees F


I am not sure if you have resolved this issue, or not, but just in case. Yes, the problem is the Thermistor. This is a sensor that "reads" the incoming water temp. It is really easy to replace as well.

Sta rite 400na gives error code 05 after about 30 seconds


I am not sure if you have received an answer to the issue, or not, but just in case! An EO5 error code is an open stack flue sensor, or switch, There are two forms of the stack flue sensor, so you will need to know which one you have on the heater.

What this error code means is that the sensor "read" the flue temp to be over 500 degrees. Usually, it is just gone bad and reading the wrong temp.
