Most likely you have a thermopile that has low output. it takes about 100mv to maintain pilot light

Those particular heaters can be tricky because they came a few different ways, including a millivolt to electronic spark conversion that was done on site.
Your best bet is to get an old pool tech out there to see if they can get it fired up. The variables involved are far too extensive to troubleshoot in this format. Good luck with it.

Pilot won't stay on


Burners don't have anything to do with the problem of pilot not lighting. Is the problem that flame will not 'stay' lit? Or you can't even get a flame to ignite? If former: possible bad pilot generator or bad gas valve. If latter, possible bad gas valve or no fuel to ignite.

I have an H250 NG and when I light the pilot it goes out when I release the pilot button on the gas valve?


The first thing That comes to mind is a bad pilot generator or thermopile. This makes a small half volt charge that energizes the magnets that open the two stages in the gas valve. Next would be a bad gas valve itself. You will need a milivolt meter to check both of these. Lastley is the safty circut. This is the string of switches that can shut the heater down if problems exist. Their are two sets of wires connected to the gas valve. One set goes down to the pilot, this is for the pilot generator. The other set is the safty circut. If you remove these wires and the pilot lightes and stays lit the problem is in the circut. Still no pilot then it is in the pilot or valve. Good luck.

Hi I have an Hayward H Series pool heater and the pilot doesn't stay lit when I depress the control to turn it on. Any quick solution for that ?


Check the thermocouple that the pilot light heats up. If it is not working then the gas to the pilot will not stay on.

Pilot light is lit, but heater will not fire


Make sure thermostat is set higher than water temperature. Make sure pump is running and water is flowing through unit. If gas valve is not opening then flame sensor or gas valve is bad.

Heater won't stay lit


On your main gas manifold you have orfaces that screw into it at each burner. Remove these and see if their are small spider webs in them. They will look like little lint balls. They can keep your main burner from getting gas and in turn keep the heater from sensing flame. The pilot lights and the heater starts but no flame at the main will shut it rite down. See if this helps.
