Sounds like low water flow. Is there a manual bypass that may be open? If not, thermal regulator may be bad, or worst case scenario, heat exchanger is blocked due to imbalance of ph/alkalinity in pool water. Good luck.

When turning on power display reads 128 then error code r 13, after this it say's spa on but the temp reads 126 and the water temp is only about 68 so the heater never comes on.


This is not an error code. 128 r13 is the normal programming or software version for your model. you need to press the spa on button again, make sure the temp set point is higher then the actual water temperature

LO on Display


"LO" means lock out. This means that the heater has failed to fire, and will not attempt to do so again until it is turned off and back on.

Either the heater is getting no gas, the gas valve is not opening for any of several reasons, the signal to spark is not being sent to the ignitor, the ignitor has failed, or the heater is failing to detect that the burner has been lit. Best to get a tech on it.

Display reading 109 degrees pool at 77 degrees so heater wont turn on


If the display is displaying what the heater thinks the water temperature is then there is likely a problem in the water temperature sensor or the board that reads it. I would be prepared to take the heater apart to measure values with a volt/ohm meter before calling the Sta Rite technical support number at 888-782-7483. They should be able to help you figure out what part is malfunctioning.

Please let me know how this turns out. Thank you.

Pool heater runs but the air coming out of the unit is cold.


R3 is not one of the actual error codes, but is part of the computer system. What you can try to do is reset the computer in the heater. First you will need to turn the heater off, then turn off the circuit breaker for the heater. Wait about 15 to 20 minutes then reverse the order, the circut breaker then the heater. Try and start the heater and watch the display panel.

If they R3 reappears, then the problem is the control board for the heater and it will need to be replaced.

Press the *power button* once to start the heater on high power, continuous run. If left at this setting, the unit will run continuously on high power (1500 watts, 12.5 amps) and will not shut off until the unit is manually turned off.
Press the *power button* again, to change to low power, continuous run, (900 watts, 7.5 amps) and will not shut off until the unit is manually turned off.

Set temperature:

Press the temp/timer button until the temperature icon blinks. Use the up and down arrows to set the desired temperature.
The temperature icon will stop blinking and the current room temperature will reappear after the desired temperature is set.

The heater will turn off and on to achieve the desired temperature.

Set timer: (auto off)

Press the timer/timer button until the timer icon blinks. The hour display will appear. The auto off icon will also appear.
Use the up and down arrow buttons to set the heater operation time between 1 and 10 hours. This function will activate once the timer icon stops blinking. The heater will automatically turn off whn the times runs out.

Set timer: (auto on)
