Could be the pressure switch on the heater. Jump switch. If heater fires the switch is bad

My pool heater rheem said clean filter and strainer. not turning on heat what should i solve the problem and tell me how do i clean the strainer where it is location...

They are referring to the strainer basket inside the filtration pump, and the pool filter system itself. The indication is either this basket is full of debris or the pool filter is so dirty you do not have enough water flowing through the heater. A safety device in the heater is shutting down the heater to prevent damage. None of the parts you named are inside the heater.

I received a notice that the filter needs cleaning. How do I do that?

THis is a PRS code (clean filter/strainer) correct?
This simply means that either there is no water flowing through the pool heater (possibly due to a dirty filter)
If you know you have good water flow, then your pressure switch has failed. Replace the pressure switch.

Prs error code, clean strainer

Your not getting enough pressure to run the heater. So you need to clean the strainers and clean the filter. If you have a DE filter you may want to break it down and clean it. While your at this you should check your pressure switch and your by-pass valve.

The fan in the heater turns on but the heater does not turn on.

Probably a bad circuit board. I have the same problem once the water gets above about 82 deg. I tried cleaning the filter and strainer, cleaning out the heat exchanger, replacing the temperature limit switches, bypassing the pressure switch, and cleaning the ashes off the burner, and none of these worked.

What do you do about a service strainer notification on a rp2100 digital

Clean the strainer basket on your pump and clean your filter. If this does not help you will need to check your impeller expecally if your basket has any cracks in it. Also if you have a by-pass valve between the inlet and outlet pipes going to the heater that should be 80-90% closed. Hope this helps, good luck.

Raypack gas pool heater displays"clean filter/strainer" when I turn it on

There is not enough system pressure to close the heaters pressure switch so the heater will not fire. Assuming your pump is on and any valves in your pipes are set correctly it means something is restricing water flow too much and needs to be cleaned to fix your flow rate and allow the heater to fire.

Start at the skimmer(s) baskets and then the pump strainer basket and finally clean your filter. If sand, backwash it. If cartridge or DE clean according to your manufacturers direction. In some cases cleaning a cartridge filter will no longer satisfy heater pressure requirements meaning you will need to replace the element.
