SOURCE: sta-rite gas heater won't ignite

I am not sure if either of these issues have been solved, but with the AGS light on, you will need to check the flow of water first. If it is below what is needed for the heater, this will light up. If the water flow is fine, then check the water temp on the display panel. If it is readin higher than that of the ACTUAL pool water temp, you need to replace the Thermister.

If the water temp displayed is about that of the pool water, then the Automatic Gas Shutoff will be the next thing to check and replace.

You can tell IF a Sta-Rite heater has been converted by the model number. The Convesion Kit is supposed to come with a sticker stating that the heater has been converted, but there are two options for the kit and the one without the sticker is cheaper.

If you take off the top two halves of the heater, on the Junction Box there should be a Tri-fold card there. Unfold it, if the model number ends with NA it is a Natural Gas Heater, LP would be Propane.

SOURCE: sta rite 400na gives error code 05 after about 30 seconds

I am not sure if you have received an answer to the issue, or not, but just in case! An EO5 error code is an open stack flue sensor, or switch, There are two forms of the stack flue sensor, so you will need to know which one you have on the heater.

What this error code means is that the sensor "read" the flue temp to be over 500 degrees. Usually, it is just gone bad and reading the wrong temp.

SOURCE: Expected life time of Sta-Rite heater?

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

Overall heater life is often dictated more by the pool maintenance history and chemical usage than location. Generally speaking up here in the Midwest you can expect 12 - 15 years of service life from a heater. More if it gets pampered with such treatment as proper winter covering and regular cleaning and maintenance. Far less if chemical issues arise in a pool and are not dealt with properly. A heater can fail in a matter of weeks if water conditions are that poor.

So, to answer your question; with proper installation, maintenance and water treatment I’d put it at 15 – 18 years before the heater will have spent itself from wear.

If this answer does not fix your problem or you are not sure about part or all of this post, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

John

Try replacing the Temp sensor. You can not just jump it out, it needs to be repaced.

Our spa heater has no lights on and will not turn on. When I reset the breaker all the lights come on and it shows 180 in led display and then r 8, then shuts itself off.


If one of my customers had this issue with their heater I would call the Sta Rite technical support at 888-782-7483 and they would likely be able to help you diagnose this issue.

Please let me know how this works out and ask subsequent questions. Thank you.

Sta rite heater won't fire. Control board only shows green LED lights. Prior to not firing water temp was 120 degrees. Almost burnt my foot off. Next day heater did not fire at all. Where can I go to...


Could be your heat sensor has gone bad. follow the wires for the sensor from the board to the water manifold. Then simply unscrew the old one and put a new one in. Do this with the system off, good luck.

Shows r 5 code when power is turned on. sta-rite


The R5 is a sequence code in the boot up sequence where your error is occuring. There is nothing in the users manual for these pool heaters that explains this error. Your best bet, unfortunately, is going to be to call Sta Rite. Here is their customer service number: 1-800-831-7133
