Sta-rite heater error code 126

All of a sudden my pool heater is not working. When I opened the pool about a month ago it was fine. Now I get a display code of 126 and it won't turn on. I've seen this commonly reported. What does it mean?

The 126 is not an error code, but it maybe the temp of the water that the heater is reading. If the heater thinks the water is 126 degrees, it will not start at all.

If the heater is reading the wrong water temp, the problem is the Thermister, which is the sensor that is suppose to read the water temp. You will need to replace this sensor in order to correct the problem with the heater. It is really easy to do!

If you have a manual for the heater, if you go to the Replacement Parts Listing for the Electrical System, page 53 in the online version, the Thermistor is Item #9. It goes into the left side of the manifold in the to place, between the first two manifold bolts.

    I had the exact same problem listed here (having a 126 on the control board for the Sta-rite heater). After reading this update, I decided to order the part and I installed it this afternoon. It was the right answer for my problem.

    I have the same issue and replaced the Thermister but this didn't fix the problem. I am still getting the same error which is 126 e13.

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

It reads 126


That is not a code. Look under the cover on the circuit board for red light.

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.
