Do you have 24V at the brown wire of the gas valve? If you do then it is probably a bad gas valve.
If you don't have 24V on the brown wire it is probably the ignitor.

Pentair Minimax CH Propane Millivolt Ignition Heaters error E05 what is it?


If you are firing, and then going off and getting an E05, your igniter is to blame. It may be glowing but it's getting weak. The diagnostic goes further but that is usually the fix.. With inactivity, the igniter is always to blame. You really need to fire it off weekly to make it reliable and make sure that your heater is serviced at least one time a year to keep all the internal components operating as designed.

The pilot light on my pentair minimax ch 250m will light, but when i switch button from pilot to on the flame goes out on the pool heater.


More than likley this is a bad thermocouple and will need a new pilot assembly. But it can also be a short in the safty circut, rat chewed wires or a bad gas valve. It may be best to get a repairman involved. Or you can just drop each switch out of line and jump past them to check. But part changeing can get pricy. Good luck.

Pentair minimax 250 leaks onto burner


Unfortunately it is usually caused by a bad heat exchanger. Not too expensive, but a dirty, time consuming job to replace.

I have a minimax 250 i can light the pilot but the main burner will not light. i jump the th to th/pp and the pilot goes out.


are you sure your jumping th and th/pp? the labeling on valve is a little deceptive.should use 1st and 3rd terminal on gas valve. if your using correct terminals try same thing with thermostat wires disconnected from gas valve. this will isolate valve from all controls and safties.if it fires valve is good and need to look in thermostat loop for problems. hope this helps

Main burner not lighting


Could be bad coupler or pilot valve is not staying up due to bad spring. If the light does stay lit at all, then the problem is with the fuel.

You can get the entire pilot assembly for $70 at poolcenter.com
