Jandy Lite 2 - Pilot goes out when I turn to On

I have a Jandy Lite 2. When I turn the knob to pilot, depress and hit the ignition the pilot immediately lights. I continue to hold down for over a minute and then let it up so that I can turn to the on position. As soon as I let the pilot switch come up the pilot goes out.

Any advice?

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



No, the pilot generator or the pilot head itself is the issue. You need a good, solid blue flame across the generator to get enough power to hold the switch open when you let go of the knob. If the pilot flame is week or not aimed across the generator it will not stay lit.



If it is but the generator is old and weak, it will go out as well. If you can see the pilot flame and it is a nice blue color, replace the generator. If it is not, disassemble the pilot and either clean it out or replace it.

How to I start my heater


If it is this heater, then you must:

1- turn the toggle switch to the ON position.
2- Turn the gas valve dial to the PILOT position.
3- Depress the pilot button while pressing the ignitor until you see a flame. Continue to depress the pilot dial for about 30-60 seconds.
4- let go of the button, and the pilot flame should stay lit. If it does , then turn the gas valve dial to the ON position.
5- Set the temperature and your done.

After depressing the control knob to ignite the pilot comes on but after i turn the depress control loose the pilot light goes out.


The thermocouple heats from the pilot and causes a mini voltage which opens the gas valve.
If bad this will not happen.

Pilot lite won't light


I believe your heater uses a" Glow plug" style igniter not a traditional pilot.This type takes a few minutes to lite. Be sure the correct pump is running,the gas valve is turned on, and the Bypass valve is at least 1/2 way closed.Also make sure you have at least 10 psi on the filter gauge.

No, do not mess with wiring. If the gas does not ignite and the pilot goes out, The thermocoupler is faulty. This is the probe that should be sitting at the tip of the pilot flame. When it gets hot enough it allows the main gas valve to open when you put it to ON position. If the pilot light goes out, It shuts off the gas for safety. Summary, Bad thermocoupler. Easy, inexpesive repair. Let me know please, if you need further help.
