Triton minimax 400 pool heater won't ignite

Power is clearly getting to the heater because the green light comes on. Filter is clean, seems to be getting a good flow of water through it. Gas is on.

    We have a Purex Triton Minimax 400. A spa repairman just left and determined that the water flow unit or valve is bad. It seemed to think there was no water flowing through the heater. Thanks for your time and I hope my post helps others.

    Multiple conditions must be met before main burner fires; model number is important; is it a PowerMax, NT series or just a MiniMax millivolt heater?

Make sure the gas valve is set to on and thermostats are set properly. Check the pressure switch and high limits for continuity.Check wires for signs of damage, etc..

SOURCE: Purex Triton Minimax 400 pool/spa heater not igniting

This sounds like you have a problem with your pilot. You can check this with a small mirror to see if their is a spark when you turn it on. If you have any soot build up on the pilot that will stop the spark and keep it from lighting also. If you have a short on your pilot wire this could be the problem also. I hope this helps, good luck.

Purex Triton MiniMax Plus 400 power light is not turning on nor is unit. Checked for power going to unit and no fuses appear to be blown. Thoughts on what might be the issue? Thanks, Dan


if you have incoming power, you may have a bad transformer. those systems run on 24-28v. you can check from yellow wire to yellow wire coming off the transformer to see if you have anything coming out. must check wires coming out of the transformer to each other, it won't register if you check each one individually to ground. hope this helps...

Cleaning the Thermal couple can work at times, however most times you will need to replace it. You may also be having an issue with the ignition control. You are in pretty deep now and it would seem like you are determined to save this heater, I would change them both.

I turned the gas off to my unit (Minimax 400 w/auto elec ignition), cannot get it to light now.


Making sure the power is off you can try to bleed out the gas line by cracking open a connection near the heater. Let it run till you smell gas. Then tighten it up and let it sit for fifteen or twenty minutes, to be syre the gas has cleared then try it again.
