Question about Hayward H Series Pool & Spa Heater 400k Btu Propane Gas Milivolt Ignition H400p1

1 Answer

I have an Hayward 400IDL pool heater and am getting Error Code AO. I have replaced the Vent Pressure Switch, Blower Vacuum Switch, Control Board, and checked the tubing. I still get an AO error code. I took the blower fan off and it spins freely and appears to be in good shape. Any ideas on what I should do next?

SOURCE: Hayward GAS HEATER KEEPS GIVING ERROR AO blower

This means that either the switch is bad, the wiring is corroded, the fan is not working, or the air switch tubing is broken or cracked. Follow the air switch tubing all the way to the end, remove it and check for cracks. This is the most common. Also check wiring connections for breaks, or corrosion.
If all looks well, replace the air switch.
Also, before any of this, make sure the fan is coming on at start-up.

Check your wiring again on all the safety devices - Water pressure switch and both Hi- limits in the header.

AO error code on 250k btu hayward pool heater


Dear ,

Please try the below solutions,

Solution 1:
If the blower prover switch does not close after the blower starts the control will stop the ignition trial go into lockout. The blower will continue to run. Automatic reset is immediate after the switch closes
Solution 2:
If the blower prover switch opens unexpectedly during operation the control will shut down and attempt to re-light. If the switch does not close after the blower starts the control will go into lockout with the blower running. Automatic reset is immediate after error is corrected
Solution 3:
If the blower prover switch opens during the postpurge cycle (heater is not fir- ing) the control will display the error code. The post-purge cycle will be com- pleted once the blower prover switch close
Regards,
Samy

The tube or hose that connects my hayward spa part # IDXLBWR1930 is broken. I am getting an AO error.


This tube connects between the blower and a vacuum or pressure switch. If the tube is broken the switch can't detect whether the blower is working. If you fix the tube then the system will continue its sequence and if it finds no more faults it should ignite and the heater can heat.

Ao appears after ignigtion


Either the fan is not working, or the fan prover (pressure switch) switch is stuck. If you can hear the fan going strong, it is most likely the switch. You may try to just clean it out, but you may need a replacement.


This error is produced when the blower prover switch does not close after the blower starts, the control will stop the ignition and go into lockout. Automatic reset is immediate after the blower prover switch closes.

If you keep having this problem, contact a reputable service company, especially if it's under warranty.

The link to the owners manual is below, it references fault codes, etc..

Hope this helps.

I have an ao code and have replaced the vaccum switch and blower vaccum switch and still getting the ao code


Check the tubing going from the blower to the blower vacuum switch. If there are any cracks, missing, or cut, it will give the same code. Rodents like to chew on this tube. Also, if the blower is not coming on at all, then you will get the same code, and the problem is not with the switch, it is likely in the blower.
