I would like you to try a reset of the system. Turn off the power on the heater, then turn off the circuit breaker that goes with the heater. Wait about 20 minutes and then try and start the heater. If it still will not power up, turn the display panel over, there are diagnostic lights on the back side. If the light is on next to the AFS, that is the Air Flow Switch.

You heater has brain damage. I wish I had better info for you but this heater has been a consistent source of aggravation for pool techs.
Sta-Rite, a division of Pentair acquired about 12 years ago, manufactured the heater under the name MaxiTherm (and still does).

Pentair decided to make their own version of it and unfortunately they are hard to keep running. I don't know what they tweaked but they managed to wreck one of the best heater designs out there.

A tech can come out and change the malfunctioning parts but it won't be cheap, and very likely will have to service it again within a relatively short period of time.

I'd advise to get in contact with your local Pentair rep and see if you can get any credit toward the Sta-Rite version. For what these things cost you have to demand better performance.

3 hp hot tub motor Sta-Rite tub has two speed low for filtering and high for jets low starts and then stops high speed works fine

make sure you make a wiring diagram or just unplug the plug from the mother board and search your area for your local pool pump repair guy with free testing. these are a high $$$ motor and not a good one to practice on, save it for a pro ! it might just be a dirty switch or need to be reset I don't charge any thing for that, and while your there ask him how to take better care of your $$$ pump ?

You should not have any gas at the union until the heater tries to fire. The Air Flow Switch circuit should have 24 volts at the switch and should be tested. If the voltage is not correct then more trouble shooting will need to be done.
