I am getting an error code ags

AGS - Auto Gas Shutoff = Because of a problem sensed, the gas valve is closing, stopping gas supply and hence heater shutoff.
Improper water flow through heater! Check filter, pump, water supply lines, anything that will reduce water flow into heater.
A faulty Pressure Switch may cause this problem as well.
In coming water to heater is over 104°
If all is good with the above, replace the AGS Switch.

Pressure switch will do exactly what you checked for, when the pump is not running. voltage on one side but not the other is normal when the pump is off. With pump on & operating, you should have voltage on both sides. One lead on the common wire at the transformer and the other checking the flow of electricity across the switches.

It sounds like your roll out sensor/fusible link is burned out. This burns out (open circuit) because of a "Reason"!!! The heater needs to be checked by a professional service company. Heat exchanger in most cases is Sooted & needs to be cleaned/desooted.

good luck

Car runs perfect then starts missing real bad then stalls

Not unusual for fuel pumps to begin to fail once they are heated up from running. First thing in the morning pump is cool, then as you drive, it heats up and begins to lose pressure. After sitting a 1/2hr-1hr, it may start again and run fine for a short time and start to act up again. Had similar problem and found good fuel pressure when tank and pump cool, but lost pressure once vehicle driven a distance and pump heated up. The hotter the weather, the shorter the distance I could drive. If you can somehow set it up to have fuel pressure checked when it starts to act up, that would certainly help confirm if fuel pressure is the culprit.

My robo kleen pool cleaner motor and pump run but the unit will not roll

You might need to perform some maintenance on the automatic pool cleaner wheels and drive system. Remove debris or tree leaves caught in the axle bearing. Do not turn the drive wheels by force. This may cause damage to the drive gear train.

Heater wont come on. pool side of temperature control failed about 2 years ago. now I'm thinking the spa side failed and need to replace the temp control unit. Is this a logical assumption? I'm a handy guy...

The most common problems with these heaters are the control board, and the pressure switch. The pressure switch is much cheaper,and easier to replace.Try jumping the switch first(but don't leave it that way). Also be sure the line isn't clogged by turning the pump on for a second while the switch is removed. You should get a steady stream of water. Electronic parts are usually not returnable, so exhaust all other options first.

depending on the motors style of start-up, if you have a centrifugal type of start winding switch, your motor may be trying to start on the run winding due to a defective contact on the centrifugal switch, if it is a capacitor type starer, you might have a defective capacitor once again the motor is trying to start on the run winding, a way to find out is to be there and listen to the motor when it tries to start and trips the barker, if the motor emits a loud humming noise you have a fault with the start-up winding control device, if the picture supplied with your post is correct the capacitor is the long cylindrical thing at the top of the motor, you can remove this and bring it to a motor shop, they can test this for you

Unit will not remove palm seeds/leaves and blocks itself

Definitely sounds like the wrong cleaner in your pool. I would think that a pressure side Polaris is the type you need. The throat is larger and when full will not affect your pump.

Running it next to the pool is not very telling as it will shut itself off in that time anyway. Do you have access to another power supply to try with it? It is possible, though unlikely, it is the problem. It is more likely the motor pack and a new one is costly.
