Pool heater won't light

Have a hayward natural gas pool heater that had a leak. repaired leak and then when trying to start it up again the heater tries to light and the fan runs but you just smell gas and it does not light. can you relight and auto ignite pilot? or is it something else? checked connections and gas and water pressure are good. Only 3 months of use.

It is possible to light a pool heater with an ignition device,however it is not advisable.since your unit is calling for heat and the gas valve is opening,i suspect you have a faulty ignitor

0. Check the spark ignitor conection to the board
1. Check the water by-pass valve if you have it
2. Check your gas pressure. (5-7"wc for natural gas, 9-13"wc for propane gas)
3. Clean your filter for your water system or remove it and try again
4. Check the Hi-limits on your heater
5. Replace the thermostat

Hayward H400 Pool heater will not stay lit


"IF" - Hayward Pool Heater Fails to Ignite: the most common reason for this problem is insufficient gas supply. The Hayward heater LED display will show a diagnostic fault code of "IF" which stands for Ignition Failure. Undetected gas pressure problems if not investigated properly may result in unnecessary replacement and servicing of your Hayward Pool Heater.
