Pentair 472604 Igniter Replacement MiniMax NT STD Pool and Spa Heater

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.

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.

you need the heaters replaced, take the model number to your local spa or pool company and they can give you the model and the booklet on how to replace. be sure to turn power off before working on it. some models have valves to shut off water so you don't have to drain it, others don't so the free manual will be very helpful. If the heaters are while and blown out then your PH level is high and you will need to adjust for that condtion, or tell people to quit peeng in the pool.

I have a PacFab MiniMax 100 pool heater. The pilot remains on... but the burner will not ignite unless I hit/jar the heater. Any suggestions on what may need replacement or repair?


First thing to check is the flow switch. You can bypass it temporarily, and see if it lights. DO NOT OPERATE IT WITHOUTH FLOW SWITCH. If it isn't the flow switch, then it could be the thermostat or a bad connection on this low voltage millivolt circuit.

Cleaning the Thermal couple can work at times, however most times you will need to replace it. You may also be having an issue with the ignition control. You are in pretty deep now and it would seem like you are determined to save this heater, I would change them both.
