SOURCE: pool heater Maintenance

It is vitally important that your water chemistry be maintained. Pool water that is acidic or alkaline will attack your heater's internal components in a relatively short time. A monthly (minimum) analysis by a reputable pool store will help you maintain proper water balance and extend the life of everything in your pool, be it pumps and equipment, ladders and handrails, marsite, paint or vinyl liner.

SOURCE: I have a Raypak model 153 pool heater. The heater

For some reason your heater is not recognising the flame when it goes on. The biggest reason for this will be small spider webs in the burner orfaces. These are on the main gas manifold where it connects to the burners. You can get a small wire and bend it to go in these orfaces but the first time you do this it will probally be easer to pull the tray and remove the orfaces from the gas line. Good luck, I hope this helps.

SOURCE: I'm thinking of buying a Lochinvar Energyrite

My boss once asked me if I could work on a Lochinvar. I told him I could pronounce it.
Chevy is a car and so is Mercedes Benz. Lochinvar is the same kind of German engineering. Quality product. Tough to find people qualified to work on one and pricey at that. Great heaters though. As far as the model I have only worked on the big ones.(commercial) I have found if you work on them one time they stay fixed.

Troubleshooting blink codes


There is actually a legend on the ignition control module that you see flashing. This is a very basic troubleshooting code, usually it blinks 3 times, meaning ignition lockout (heater tried to fire unsuccessfully 3 times)

Hello, I have a Lochinvar ern 252, it was working great last season and was winterized properly... I just open the pool and now it is reading lockout ignition failure.... I can smell gas when it goes into...


two things, is it a spark igniter or hot surface?
if spark igniter is working then the pilot tube or fuel path to the igniter is plugged, a lot of times small spiders or insects will winter over in these tubes, build a small web or cocoon that restricts gas flow to the igniter. OR hot surface igniter not hot enough and will not lite the gas. can be tested with an amp probe or just replaced .

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Try this before taking anything apart to far:

The pressure switch is located in the front header, behind the

upper side jacket panel, above the water connections. When

required, the pressure switch can be reset with the following

procedure:

1. Clean filter and skimmer.

2. Start filter pump.

3. Set digital thermostat to highest setting.

4. Turn the adjustment knob on the pressure switch clockwise

until the combustion air fan in the front control panel turns

off. Fan will not turn off if system pressure exceeds 5 PSI.

5. Slowly turn the adjustment knob counter-clockwise until the

combustion air fan turns on. Turn knob an additional ΒΌ turn

counter-clockwise.

6. Turn filter pump off and on several times. The heater should

shut down immediately when the pump stops.

7. If the heater does not shut down immediately as the filter

pump stops, repeat steps 4, 5 and 6 until proper operation

is achieved.
8. Reset thermostat to desired temperature setting.

If after doing all of the above you still have the problem.... you can remove the switch and check for debris in the water passages. If you find debris remove it, reinstall the switch and repeat steps above.

- Still have the problem... Replace the switch.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Lochinvar The boiler is purging, ignitor is getting hot, but


This could be something as simple as a gas valve turned off. First check all the gas valves, (one inside the heater, one outside and one at the source.) Also if this is LP gas make sure that you have enough gas. It takes at least 30% in the tank before the heater will fire. In many places their may be an earthquake valve. If this fails it will shut the gas down to the heater. Their are many reasons the heater won't fire and the fellow who told you to change the board probally works for Lochinvar. You might want to have a repairman look at the heater first before you spend that money. Good luck.

Circulating pump shutdown piolet lite shut off on boiler


It sounds like you have a circulation problem. The bleed off valve should only open when you have a presure problem (nonexistent on the open system of a pool) or when you have a over herating problem witch will shut down your pilot also. Check your heater by-pass valve. (A valve in an "H" on the inlet and outlet of the heater) This should be 80-90% closed to force water through the heater. If not this the standered; check the baskets, clean the filter and make suree there is enough water to keep the pump primed. I hope this helps, if not send more info on what is going on.Good luck.
