Question about Jandy Laars Lite2 Pool & Spa Heater - Electronic Dual Ignition - 125,000 BT

1 Answer

Jandy 'Lite 2' 325 btu "LG" Natural gas unit will not fire up!!

We bought this unit second hand, manufactured in 2004, and it was apparently running when it was being used, We have hooked up the plumbing, with no leaks, able to hook up to gas with no leaks, and same with hydro, we are hooked into 115 volts, It has hydro as we are able to get the screen up and running, it shows Normal function, and we are able to set the heater for 80 degrees, we have reset it to original with the reset button, but nothing else seems to be working, It will not fire up, and it doesn't make any noises to even indicate it is trying to do anything, we are unsure where to start looking for the problem, It states it is normal and does not give any error codes! Any ideas??
Thanks

You have to make sure the heater is wired for 110v where you hook the wires up to it. Depending on model it has a red and a black and a red tracer and a black tracer wireyour leads hock to two and the other two wire nut together It will have a tag or scematic to tell you how in a couple of places on the unit. If not that it will simpley be a plug that pulls out in one place and plugs in another. On the early units of that model it may be you just need to reverse polarity also. One more thing if it is a forced draft (with an internal fan) It is imperetive that you gas meter and gas line are sized correctly or it won't fire at all.

I would suspect that it is not the valve making the noise. I would bet it is the thermal expansion of the metal that you are hearing. Other than that, I have seen cases where there is a flow control valve, and depending on its operation, when it opens or closes on spring power it will over shoot and make a loud clicking noise as the clutch overshoots. This will usually only be about 2-4 clicks though, and around pool equipment I doubt you would hear much of it. I would bet more on the thermal expansion. Kind of like the clicking noise you will hear after you have parked your car and the engine is cooling down.

The heater will fire up and the blower will work for a couple of cycles and then the AGS will flash and/or the blower will flash. Is this the result of poor gas pressure or a faulty circuit board?

What has the contractor who installed it or the dealer who sold it to you said? It is under a manufacturers warranty so if it needs servicing you should leave it to someone in your area who provides warranty service for Jandy. You can locate one on their site.
