Question about Teledyne Laars Laars Lite 2 Pool Heater 250,000 Btu / Natural Gas

2 Answers

I was given a Laars pool heater, model R0096400, and I can not get the pilot switch to push down to lite it. Is there some kind of pressure release or step that I am missing. Or is the switch just broken?

    The switch reads off, pilot, on. Pilot being the word closest to the panel opening.

Is the word "pilot" aligned with the post on the valve body?

    P.S. : ...with the arrow on the beige(?) knob pointing to the word "Pilot", you should be able to press the knob down to manually start the flow of gas to the pilot assembly; if you can't push the knob down, do not use this valve!

Sometimes the spring inside the valve can be jammed. If it will not go down and by chance you are unable to force it down, then chances are it won't stay up either. So in all...You will have to get new valve.

your pool guy may be right but before spending any hard earned cash,remove phillips head screw in middle of on/off/pilot knob and remove.make sure there is no debris under knob.squirt spray lubricant along stem wait 10 minutes and lube again.replace knob turn to pilot position work it by pushing down several times.it may stick in down position so gently pry up.my success rate is about 70/30 for this technique
