Question about Hayward H Series Pool & Spa Heater 400k Btu Propane Gas Milivolt Ignition H400p1
I will start my pool filter and the heater will not turn on.
Does the heater sound like it is trying to fire? (Fan on, clicking sound). Check your filter pressure. If it is high, it may be causing the heater not to fire because the heater doesn't know the pump is running.

LO usually indicates low water pressure. Check the pressure in your filter. You may need to backwash. If the filter is to clogged then the water pressure in the heater is so low that it won't activate the pressure switch. While checking the pressure turn the pump off and then on to make sure the pressure gauge is actually working. Also check the pressure coming out of the inlets into the pool. You should be able to tell if you have sufficient water pressure.

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.

Your pool chemistry is likely out of balance and leaving a residue on your heat exchanger coils. Had the same exact problem. Called a technician out and he said that I needed a new Heater after talking to Hayward. No warranty situation for sure. I went to the pool store, got 2 pieces of hose and hooked it up through my pump. Put a coil cleaner mixed with industrial vinigar and ran it for two days and all is good now. Solution after that was simply good chemistry in the pool. Salt water pool by the way.
