Pool heater


This is an old, but good heater. Power is either stopping thru the safety loop, high limits or pressure switch, or the pilot generator is tiring out and not sending enough power to keep the gas valve open.

Pilot light on water heater wont stay lit


The thermocouple has failed. It is the temp probe that goes from the pilot lite burner area to the control valve. Go to your local plumbng repair shop and buy one. Most appliance parts stores have them also. Take the old one with you and they will hook you up with an exact replacement. They are not that hard to change. Usually a nut or 2 screws in the temp bulb area at the burner end and a nut that threads into the control valve.
Make sure before you install the new one that the area where it mates to the gas valve is clean. Should be about a 20 min job including clean up with replacement parts in hand.

Won't light


If you can see the ignitor coming on and the furnace will not fire, if you have a elect. meter, see if you have 24volts at the terminals on the gas valve right after the pilot lights or glow plug whichever. you should hear the gas valve click when pilot is on and have 24volts at the valve at that time. If you do, then the valve is bad.If you don't have 24 volts, then check the stat for 24 volts. A safety may have tripped also. Try these things first and let me know. Good Luck, Shastalaker7

Pilot will light but main burner will not light


if burner lights after jumping valve you have something wrong in thermostat loop. disconnect the 2 thermostat wires on gas valve and use multimeter on continuity setting. if all wires ,connectors and components are good,you will get a tone.since you have jumped out each component in thermostat loop with no success ,i would suspect a bad wire or oxidation on a terminal .

Pilot will stay on but burners will not ignite, checked all switches seem to be working allright, still no burner ignition


Possibly a flow switch not closed, or a limit switch open. May even be the pilot generator not producing enough mili-volts to operate the gas valve. Safest way is to have it serviced by a heating contractor. You dont have to call a pool company unless you wish.

Laars lite 2 pool heater burner not lite


If the pilot flame is not strong enough, it will not tell the gas valve to open, or if the gas valve is not getting the signal to open, it won't. Check all wire connections at the thermostat and gas valve. Check ground wires. Clean the pilot light and flame rod.
