Are you sure your jumping th and th/pp? the labeling on valve is a little deceptive.should use 1st and 3rd terminal on gas valve. if your using correct terminals try same thing with thermostat wires disconnected from gas valve. this will isolate valve from all controls and safties.if it fires valve is good and need to look in thermostat loop for problems. hope this helps

PILOT LIGHT COMES ON BUT WHEN YOU TURN THE KNOB TO ON IT DOES NOT LIGHT UP THE CIRCLE PLATE IN THE HEATER. IT JUMPS AND THE FIRE COMES OUT THEN IT GOES OUT.


I'm not sure what unit you are troubleshooting but if the main burner is igniting and that main burner flame is blowing out the pilot flame, it's possible the pilot flame orifice needs to be cleaned. The orifice can get stopped up and produce a weak pilot. And I've seen a pilot lite, but be blown out by the combustion of the main burner igniting. Now you stated IT JUMPS. If you mean the pilot flame jumps, as if it gets large then weak and goes out, then the gas valve is giving you trouble and may need to be replaced.

you prolly have an electrical short somewhere. follow the circuit and if any safety is getting around 200-250 dc millivolts then theres the problem. otherwise you have an open safety switch, or tsta controls

Pilot is lit, but burner will not come on. I jumped TH/PP to TH then burner comes on. Pilot generator = 350mV.


More than likely the tempature control is defective, since you effectively bypassed that connection. I found a manual for your unit which shows different types of ignition. I'm not even sure if the millivolt system is covered in this manual. Here's the sight

Main burner not lighting


Could be bad coupler or pilot valve is not staying up due to bad spring. If the light does stay lit at all, then the problem is with the fuel.

You can get the entire pilot assembly for $70 at poolcenter.com

Hayward pool heater pilot won't stay on


a short circuit in the heater wire will cause an immediate loss of all flame, pilot and main; check the wiring diagram and make sure your pilot wires go to the PP and PP/TH terminals; make sure the terminals are clean and the connection is good; you are dealing with .320 volts DC, any bad connection drops the voltage below the required minimum.
