I believe you may have a draft restriction and this may stop the start up diagnostics. The draft detection switch is sometimes restricted or weak. Common problem. Tap the gas valve to see if the winter has caused the valve to seat heavily and stick.

Turn off the stove. Seriously. If my stove is on there isn't enough gas pressure sometimes for it to light.

I have a jandy lite 2 pool heater, fl 2 error appears even though flow seems ok burner wont fire. should the pressure switch be replaced.


FL2 means igniton failure that means the heater didnt lite make sure gas is on, is the ignitor glowing if not check the fuse on the red wires going to the ignitor sometimes the syphon loop gets plugged that will give you a flow issue

Why is it flashing fl and why is watercod


FL is used by some for a water flow problem. If you have the error then these are a few things to check.
  • Check for a dirty filter.
  • Check your gate valves on each side of the pump
  • Make sure they are fully open
  • Check the pressure switch to ensure it is operational

if you do not have enough water flow in the system it will not turn on the heater. The heater not being on will obviously allow the tub water to go cold.

My jacuzzie starts and stops wen it is runing i have a fl code


FL is a flow error, you may not have enough water going over filter housing. Jets are they open?
is your heater fitted with a pressure switch? when on FL locate pressure switch wheel and turn all the way anti clockwise until it stops then slowly wind back until you hear a click reset in control box - you have reset pressure switch.
If you have done this and still show FL or heater is not fitted with pressure switch then your LOW speed on pump maybe faulty (new pump) or heater maybe scaled up with lime scale and reducing water flow through heater - remove scale from heater, flush through and increase ANTI-SCALE

What is error code flashing Fl represent? Can you just fill the tub with water from an external source and expect the machine to go into wash cycle by preesing start? Does the tub have to fill throug pump...


The FL error code means:
Flood Condition:
FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

This problem I see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.
