Clean out the pilot assemby or replace it. It is probably blocked by rust and/or spiders and is not letting enough gas (if any) through.

The ignitor is simple to replace, It is either a spark ignitor or a Hot surface ignitor. The above link will take you to a picture of the Hot surface ignitor, it is normal held onto the bottom of the burner tray, at right about the middle, by 1 or 2 sheet metal screws.

If a Spark style ignitor/electrode, then the bottom link is the one want to look at. Again, held in place the same way as above description.

I have a Pentair minimax 250k electronic. Opened pool today and when I turned power on to the heater, it won't get through startup sequence. Dashed lines flash, then 888 and service light comes on. ...


Most of the time I have found the problem to be the thermistor. It is located on the water manifold of the heater. Usually the panel lights, flashes then to 888 and back to dashed lines. SW light is green, and service light is red. It costs 25 to 45 dollars, and takes 5 minutes to repair. New thermistor looks identical to old so replacing it is very easy.
thanks please let me know if this was helpful

I have a 6 yr old Pentair Minimax NT heater that just started leaking water. Is it worth it to repair it, or should I just buy a new one?


Buy a new one. I spent $650 beginning of season to replace the manifold that was leaking and now it is broken. Again. Had since new and every year it breaks, sometimes twice. 6 years of dealing with this piece of junk.
