Stop using the heater immediately. You are boiling the water inside and this can lead to a dangerous situation if a limit switch fails to act in time.

You will likely find the diverter in the inlet side of the heater is broken. You are looking for a stainless steel plate in the water path. If you can move it by hand, it is broke. It is not replaceable and requires a new heat exchanger assembly to repair it.

Your part number is IDXHXA1101. We sell it as will most pool dealers. If you would like a quote, contact us at www.arrowmotor.net

Hayward H100 banging (superheating); replaced baffle, still superheating


I am having the same problem. the Baffle was loose so I attached it with a little gap at the top, then started shaking and pulsating but not as mush this time. Like you I'm not sure where exactly the baffle shoud be, or if there is something else that was damaged. Hopefully someone can chime in that had a successful repair. Or with any other thoughts.

Hayward heater making a loud banging, knocking noise.


If you have an external by-pass it needs to be closed. This will be a valve between the pipes in and out of the heater. When you close it, it forces water through the heater. When it is open no water goes through the heater. So the water in the heater boils and turns to steam. With no where to go it starts banging and jumping.
If you close this valve or it is closed and you still have trouble the internal by-pass has gone bad. The overheating from the first problem will often cause this.
You remove the water header from the side of the heater and pull the pipes from it. In reality you will probably have to pull the gas pipe so you can move the heater from the pipes. You will find the assembly inside the manifold. It will probably come out in pieces but the new one goes back in as a unit.
This will regulate your water flow and keep it heating at a constant temp.

Is it leaking? Has anything shaken loose inside? If you can get it to light the cause and fix for the banging and shaking is here: https://sites.google.com/site/haywardpoolheater/

This is a by-pass problem ether internal or external. Internal is a project and you may want to get some one fimallar with your heater to help. If it is the external this is just a valve bridging the inlet and outlet pipes. Just close this down most of the way and force the water to go through the heater. with it open it gives the heater all the pressure it needs to start but you have water pushing down the inlet and outlet pipes so it can't go anywhere. The water inside the heater overheats and turns to steam giving you the banging and shakeing you have. Good luck.

My Hayward H model makes a heavy clicking noise while running. In fact, it will shake the entire unit. It only does it after egniting.


Check to be sure your heater by-pass is closed off. If not the water inside will overheat and shake and bang inside the heater.

Shaking H100ID Hayward Heater


You can try to get a welding shop to tack it back in place (I do not remember who to credit for that but it was not my suggestion) and see if it stops.

The exchanger is expensive as a DIY part...about $350...but if that is all that is wrong it is a lot cheaper than $700+ for a whole new unit.

Heater making loud noises


I had this problem with mine ( hayward h series abg100 ): exhaust fan turned on, waited approx 15sec, gas turned on, ignition, flame lit (can verify in flame window below knob), stayed lit for ~5-10 seconds (varied), I heard popping, cracking, knocking, banging noises, then gas turned off.

I believe the reason it does this is the bypass/diverter plate in the exchanger (right at the inlet side) is loose; the weld broke loose. They weld this very poorly and is obviously a known issue with the unit. I think storing it outside in the winter doesnt help. Another reason for the noise could be not enough water going through the exchanger because of a problem with the diverter plate, therefore the exchange gets to hot and boils.

I believe the ignition board senses this somehow (not sure how though, only way I can think of is via the ignition sensor), and cuts off the gas. I managed to fix this by putting on a small stainless steel hose clamp around the thermostat forcing the divertor plate tight up against the top so the water flows through the 3 exchange pipes. This was a very difficult maneuver due to working inside the tight pipe, but it worked!

You can check if you have the same problem as me by taking off your hose input to the heater, and removing the outer 2 PVC reducer connectors. Then you'll have access and sight to the exchanger input (3" pipe?) and should see what I'm talking about. If the plate moves (or isn't tight) then you most likely have the same issue. kevin71246@hotmail.com if you have questions.

1 year old hayward h1001d pool heater clicking


Actually, the clicking is likely causing the shaking. Inside the manifold of a H100 is a stainless steel diverter plate that send some of the passing water into the heat exchanger and lets the rest past and back to the pool. When it breaks, you will hear a 'clicking' noise at it rattles in the water path. When it breaks, the flow to the heat exchanger is intermittent and you will begin to boil the water, causing the shaking. This situation is dangerous, especially without a pressure relief in the heater or pipe. As long as your water chemistry is sound, Hayward will usually cover this under warranty even if the unit is over a year old.
