Best way pool heater???
Never heard of it!
Is this an import heater from China?
Like maybe for one of those Toy Pools?
... Anyway, if it never flashed red before, then there's a possible problem.
any noise other than a quiet hum, is not normal.
is this gas or electric? I'm curious

Cleaned the bestway chlorinater as per instructions but flow light blinks and turns red

Pentair MiniMax NT fan turns on then off after a minute or less. Flashing red light 3 times indicates Ignition lockout. How do I fix this? Thanks in advance

For some reason the ignition is not working or there is a gas supply issue. Best get a tech out to check it, these heaters are tricky.

Pentair Pool Heating Rapidly Increases Temp on Panel then shuts off.

Check the Thermal Reg in the header and also make sure you have adequate water flow thru the heater, make sure your filters are clean and there are no external by-pass valves open.
If you remove the Thermal Reg in the header and the heaters seems to run fine the replace with a new one.

We have refiled our lay z sap, after it dispaly shows 3 dashes

You probally just need to break an air lock in the pipes. You can ether force water down the skimmer pipe or find your drain valve and open it for a minute or two till it runs just water and no air. This will get water to the pump and the heater. This should fix you up.

Fridge freezer problem

Sounds like the defrost system of your freezer is not working. It could be either the defrost timer, defrost thermostat or the heater has a problem. The defrost timer turns off the compressor periodically to sent power to the defrost heater via the thermostat. The defrost heater then powers up and heats the evaporator coil to melt the accumulated ice buildup on the cold coils. Most likely issues are that the timer motor is not advancing the timer or the heater itself has burned out.

As hot water leavs the heater it mixes with cold water so what you feel at the pool side is barley warmer than the pool. This is ment to keep from scalding people in the pool or spa. 7-11 degrees is the max on the outlet.

My spa is showing - - - and flashing the red heater light. what dose this mean and how can i fix it?

depending on what type of spa you have, the three dashes usually mean that the control system is in "watchdog" mode and is normally caused by one or more faults in the series of sensors. You need to test or have someone test the high limit, water temperature sensor, and the flow sensor/switch. One of the sensors or possibly more than one is most likely bad. Check to make sure mice have not got under and chewed the wiring.
Hope this helps. There are so many spas on the market, without knowing which spa you have, it's difficult to offer accurate solutions. Sounds like you have a sundance spa.

I have a bestway 10 ft pool, filter making loud noise, doesn't seem to be working. Its only been in use for the last 2 days, tried releasing air, makes no difference.

Normally, the filter does not make any noises! The noise is generally from the pump. Since I am not sure what you have on the pool, to be able to find the issue, we will need a bit more information.

Do you have a seperate pool pump and filter? The pump will have a motor and some have a debris basket in front of the motor. If this is where the noise is coming from, you may want to return/exchange the pump if it is only two days old!! When you turn on the system, do you see water moving to the pump, air in the basket, or is the motor getting hot to the touch?

If you have a seperate filter from the pump, what is the pressure gauge reading on the top? If you have one, check it when the noise starts. If it is higher than it was when working properly, you have a blockage somewhere from the filter to the return line. If lower, then you may a small leak, generally o-rings, and will need to replace what is bad.

If the motor on the pump is making the noise, then it can either have debris in the Impeller area, or it is going bad. Hope this helps! If you can let us know what pump and flter you have, we may be able to find out what is going on.
