If the heater fails to ignite after three attempts, the heater will automatically go into Lock Out. This is a safety feature on the heater.

Things for you to look at to see what is causing the problem are the display panel and diagnostic lights. When you turn on the heater, is it reading the correct water temp? If not, the Thermister has gone bad and will need to be replaced. When you try to start the heater, is there an Error Code displayed? Which of the Service Lights are coming on when the heater will not light? If it is the Serivce System, that is usually low flow of water. You may have a dirty filter, skimmer or pump basket full of debris, or a valve not completely open.

If the Service System light is the one coming on, then you will need to take off the top two halves of the heater and turn over the Display Panel. There are diagnostic lights on the back side of the panel. There may be a red light next to any of the following:

AGS, AFS, SFS, HLS, PS or THERMISTOR

If there is a red light next to one of these, then that is what has malfunctioned. If you need an Owner's Manual for the heater, you can find one online at the following link:

The heater ignites, stays on about 20 seconds and goes off, after starting and stopping 3 times, it displays a service heater light.


It may not be detecting that ignition occurred. There is usually a sensor that detects ignition and if it is not working right the controller tells yo to service the heater. If you call Sta Rite technical support number they may be able to help you determine what device needs to be replaced. I hope this helps.
