Pentair 472604 Igniter Replacement MiniMax NT STD Pool and Spa Heater

The ignitor is simple to replace, It is either a spark ignitor or a Hot surface ignitor. The above link will take you to a picture of the Hot surface ignitor, it is normal held onto the bottom of the burner tray, at right about the middle, by 1 or 2 sheet metal screws.

If a Spark style ignitor/electrode, then the bottom link is the one want to look at. Again, held in place the same way as above description.

How to replace Hot Surface Ignitor on Jandy LX 400 L


Be very careful, that is not a homeowner repair. If your heater is a Lo Nox 400 yes the burner comes out, you will probably find the wires are burned and there are other problems causing ignitor failure.
The standard lx400 the ignitor is reachable from the front.

If you suspect its the ignitor? The hot surface ignitor is powered by 120v. Inspect ignitors' hot surface for cracks or burnt spots. Uplug ignitor from board. Cycle heat on and verify 120v to the ignitor at the cannon plug on the board where the ignitor plugs in. If you have the voltage then replace the ignitor. If not, you'll need to verify all other circuits are working before condemning the board. Work safe and at your own risk! Hope this helps!

I have a 90 plus Ruud furnace that will work when I light the furnce with a match when the furnace is calling for heat


Sounds like the ignitor. Your unit most likely has a hot surface ignitor. The hot surface ignitor is located in front of your burners and usually has two white wires leading you to it. It is a wear-and-tear item that can be expected to need to be replaced every couple of years or so. It would not hurt to keep a spare near your unit at all times.

RHEEM RGLE-10EQAGS Gas Furnace - Intermitent. Fans come on, Hot surface Ignitor comes on, then sometimes Gas Valve opens and all is fine, Other times, gas valve doesn't open and Hot surface Ignitor goes...


The sequence is Igniter comes on, valve comes on, flame sensor senses flame. If no flame is sensed after 3 tries, a lockout occurs. If you have a volt meter, check for 24-27 Volts AC coming to the gas valve, if your getting voltage to the valve but no gas, your gas valve is defective. It could be a intermittent problem, no matter, still a bad valve. if no voltage to valve, defective circuit board.

Using alot of hot surface ignitors


don't touch the surface of the igniter when handling it, and don't bind the mounting bracket when you tighten the capscrews, the bracket and igniter should be firm and no loose/movement if you try to move the bracket. also make sure the igniter is going back off after the burners light
