AO error code on 250k btu hayward pool heater


Dear ,

Please try the below solutions,

Solution 1:
If the blower prover switch does not close after the blower starts the control will stop the ignition trial go into lockout. The blower will continue to run. Automatic reset is immediate after the switch closes
Solution 2:
If the blower prover switch opens unexpectedly during operation the control will shut down and attempt to re-light. If the switch does not close after the blower starts the control will go into lockout with the blower running. Automatic reset is immediate after error is corrected
Solution 3:
If the blower prover switch opens during the postpurge cycle (heater is not fir- ing) the control will display the error code. The post-purge cycle will be com- pleted once the blower prover switch close
Regards,
Samy

I own a 1998 GMC 2500 5.0 L pickup and for several months now the blower motor has been working intermittently. It doesn't seem to matter what speed the selector is set on. It will come on and off several...


You say the blower goes on/off at any speed?,you mean if on high it cuts off?,on low it cuts off?sounds the same???. Try putting a continuity lamp at the fuse box and watch(someone watch)to see if light goes on/off;"could" be power is disconnected at blower(if light stays on). This is free of cost(s) and somewhere to start. Hope this helps somewhat. Alberto

Where is the heater motor


You can get to it from the engine compartment, but you have to cut the cover off. There is an indented line showing where to cut. See picture below.

  1. For the 3.1L engine, remove the alternator belt, then remove the alternator and position aside.
  2. For the 2.5L and 3.3L engines, remove the power steering pressure hose from the power steering pump.
  3. For the 3.0L engine, remove the serpentine belt.
  4. For the 3.0L and 3.3L engines, remove the retaining bolts from the power steering pump bracket, then set the pump aside.
  5. Detach the blower electrical connector, then, if accessible, remove the cooling tube.
When cutting the blower motor cover, make the cut just the thickness of the cover, which is1/ 8 inch (2mm) thick. Cutting deeper than that may damage the cooling tube.

For 1992-98 vehicles, partially cut the blower motor case cover, as shown on the cover. Cutting completely around the cover is NOT required. Swing the cut potion of the cover down.

  1. If previously accessible, disconnect the cooling tube.
  2. Unfasten the attaching screws/bolts and remove the blower motor from the case.
  1. If necessary, remove the fan from the blower motor.
  2. The installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
  3. If the case was cut during removal, secure the cover using the three retaining clips. Tighten the blower motor screws to 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm).
  4. Connect the negative battery cable, then start the engine and check the blower motor for proper operation.

Brand new electric mulching blower/vac : cut out after 10 secs.


Electric motors sometimes have circuit breakers to protect them from overload or overheating. Some reset automatically, some don't. But even if you found and reset a breaker, this shoudn't happen 10 seconds after starting a new unit, unless you sucked a branch into it during those 10 seconds! Take it back to the store for a replacement.

Heater Burner ignites but main blower motor will not turn on.


it sound like the blower motor may be seizing up. try spining the blade by hand to see if it feels free or not. the motor could be trying to turn but can then tripping itself out on overload. (most motors have built in safety overloads which will trip during an overcurrant event. aka too many amps.) you may have to replace blower motor
