Question about Pentair Minimax NT Heater

1 Answer

I have the MiniMax NT 300DV. When I push the pool button to turn on heat to pool it immediately snaps off. Readout is OFF. The diagnostic light on the ignition module flashes once when internal power switch is turned off to on. How do I fix an air flow fault? This situation has happened intermittently over the past 2 months, and has always previously corrected itself with time.

Looks like you need to clean the orifice, normally dirt gets in there or spiderwebs that would explain to me why its been coming on and off , best way to clean is to use a pipe cleaner or remove them and clean ok, that should solve your problem, happy swimming

    the gas orifice is the jets under the flame sensor, check for for obstructions, usually webs. In fact check them all. If nothing, check flame sensor- clean anything off it, a little sand cloth will work, have you cleaned the filter, make sure theirs nothing stuck in or behind the vents, it can shut off if it cant let out the air flow, check the wiring, are they on tight and clean

Why doesn't my Pentair Minimax NT heater fire?

Does it try to fire? Do you hear the blower kick on? If it only says E-- you might have a bad control input board. For it to fire the thermostat light, and pressure switch light must be lit up. Also you must push spa or pool mode on right...

I have a problem with my pool heater. When I turn it on, it turns itself off in only a few minutes. It turns off immediately when it starts heating up.

if there is any flex tube used for the gas line this will happen or you don't have enough gas pressure,or the pipe is to small.

Minimax NT pool heater won't turn on but there is no error message on display. Just says "OFF"

You may have a bad board or bad keypad bezel. Try using the other thermostat button. Either Pool or Spa button should activate the unit.
