Question about Hayward H Series Pool & Spa Heater 200k Btu Propane Gas Milivolt Ignition H200p1

1 Answer

I have a Teledyn pool heater that the pilot will not light on. There is no gas running to the pilot when I go through the same start up as previous years. I saw one thread in troubleshooting say it is the thermocoupling, but that is not identified as a part in the manual.

This could be due to low gas pressure, inadequate air supply, or improper venting. Make sure gas is turned on; with propane, make sure the tank has fuel. Also check for water run-off from roof or sprinklers. Check to make sure the heater pilot tubing is intact and not clogged.

  1. Is the system switch on?
  2. Is the thermostat up to temperature?
  3. Is the pump running with a clean filter less than or equal to 16 psi on pressure gauge?
  4. Is the gas valve in the on position?
  5. Is the pilot lit?
  6. Is the gas supply valve open?
  7. Are all plumbing and filter valves open?
  8. If a bypass is installed, is it properly adjusted?

Why won't the pilot light stay lit?


You have a "pilot generator" that sits in the flame of the pilot light. This generates a low voltage output from the flame of the pilot light. This voltage goes to the gas valve and tells the valve that the pilot is lit and to keep the pilot gas line open.
In almost all cases replacing the pilot generator will resolve the issue . They run about $60-$75.
Other causes may be the gas valve itself or a short in the safety loop, in either case should be looked at by a pool tech.

How do i light my heater pilot light? My gas was turned off temporairly but is back on and I need to relight my pilot light.


Your pilot is a spark ignition so it will start itself. You will probally need to bleed the gas line to get it to start. Do this by opening the union outside the cabinet and turn the gas on till you can smell it. Shut the gas off and tighten the union up again and let the gas clear. Then start the gas and seeif it will light at that point.

Pilot wont light //suspect corrosion, connections..


If your pilot assembly is corroded, you will have trouble lighting the pilot.
I would highly recommend replacing the pilot assembly. By doing this, you will have a new pilot generator that will be producing a larger amount of voltage to run the gas valve. Also, you will have a clean pilot tube and orifice so gas can run unobstructed.

Do not know how to start pilot light


There should be instructions on the inside of the heater access door. Make sure you are comfortable working with gas heaters. Make sure the shutoff valve supplying gas to the heater is on. Turn the gas valve to "pilot", press and hold it while attempting to light the pilot. Once the pilot is lit, continue holding the gas valve knob down for about 30 seconds. The pilot should stay lit once you release the knob. If the pilot stay lit, turn the gas valve to "on". Replace the heater access door and make sure you have proper water flow and attempt to light the heater. If it will not light, or the pilot will not stay on, you will probably have to replace the pilot generator. It provides voltage to run the heater and after time it wears out and produces less and less voltage. A millivolt heater runs on less than one volt so any power loss can be a problem. If you are able, test the pilot generator with a multimeter to see if you are getting at least 500mv when the pilot is on. If not, you should replace the pilot generator or even the entire pilot assembly. Hope this helps...

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.
