SOURCE: raypak gemini 53 pool and spa heater pilot iights but burnner wont ignight

to be more specific... All of your switches or safety sensors need to be confirmed that there is a demand for heat. and they are: toggle switch on, thermostat set for higher temperature, high limits not tripped, and pressure switch sensing that there is good water flow. if these are all a positive go, then the heater will accept this as a need to heat the water. This all appears to most people as very simple and easy to understand, except for the case of possibly the water flow issue and the high limits? If the high limits have an open circuit, there is nothing that you can do about that, they are bad and will need to be replaced. The pressure switch, if it has an open circuit, it is because there is not enough water flow, and the most common reason for that is, a dirty filter. It will need to be cleaned.
The thermocouple, or pilot generator, creates enough voltage, which is by the way under one volt, which is called millivolts, to open and close the gas valve, and operate your heater.
when all of the above is a go, the gas valve receives its voltage, which is a sign or indication, to open the valve and allow fuel to enter the burner tray which will then be ignited by the standing pilot flame at your pilot burner assembly.
if there is no ignition, you either have one of the switches above not confirming it is ready to fire, or the gas valve itself is bad.

Pool heater fires up and starts heating the water outflowing into the pool, but only stays warm for 5 minutes or less then cools and stops heating

You are tripping a temp limit switch. You either have a bad switch which you can jump the wire to confirm. This is a trouble shooting technic only. Jumping the wire permantly might cause bigger problems.
