Question about Pentair Pool & Spa
The Pentair should not be controlling the fire bowl ignition, only the power to the fire bowl. The ignition will be controlled by a separate system designed for the bowl. The spa heater is controled by the pentair via a water temp sensor and the heater has it own onboard ignition system. Have someone qualified look at the fire bowl, sounds like a flame sensing issue.

Your EO4 message tells you you have a fan problem. So ether your fan is diying wich you would hear or you have a bad presure sensor in your exaust. A new fan is a little pricey but the sensor is reasonable for heater parts. I can't be sure but I believe it ether screws onto or into your exaust and it just plugs on to your control board. If your sensor is going bad their is a reason and this should be addressed. It should be in your by-pass or your gas pressure. But as far as a new heater, not untill you have water coming from the cabnit. It is sometimes easer to sell new than keep up with new, Good luck let me know how you do.

if you have replaced the flame sensor and it will not stay lit, the draft safety switch may be opening. It works on positive and negative pressure created by the inducer fan motor.You may have a restriction in your heat exchanger or if is a high efficiency furnace, it may not have the drain tube installed properly with a trap. The trap works just like the trap under your sink and if water isnt in the trap, the pressures can be effected enough to open the draft switch(some call it an air pressure switch)

If it has the little thermal cut-off in power wire to thermostat (has a little plastic jacket over it) try removing it, and connect female spade from power wire, directly to male spade on thermostat, and see what happens. Also, make sure electrode is positioned in flame good for flame sensing properly.
