Rat nests inside the fire box or cloggs in the gas orface's going to the burners. Quite often this could be small spider webs that will look like lint.
If you have something keeping the gas from getting to the ignitor or the pilot instead of getting a smooth ignition the gas will build untill it reaches the ignition source, then boom. This will esaust all the oxigen and it will shut the heater down till it cycles again.
Hope this helps.

How do i install an igniter in minimax


Pentair 472604 Igniter Replacement MiniMax NT STD Pool and Spa Heater

The ignitor is simple to replace, It is either a spark ignitor or a Hot surface ignitor. The above link will take you to a picture of the Hot surface ignitor, it is normal held onto the bottom of the burner tray, at right about the middle, by 1 or 2 sheet metal screws.

If a Spark style ignitor/electrode, then the bottom link is the one want to look at. Again, held in place the same way as above description.

The VAC switch is probably no more good on my minimax pool heater. I have a new one but can't find where it is located. Any suggestions?


The air switch is located inside the front heater cabinet on the right hand side. You must remove both sheet metal boxes on the right to access this part. Just follow the rubber tube into the lower metal box.

NOTE: on these units, its much more common to see the rubber tubing fail. Not the actual air switch. To check the tubing, remove from the air switch, then remove the upper right panel to access the fan area. Follow the tubing into the fan casing and and remove. Check to make sure rubber is not brittle, crackes, or broken. Replace if necessary.

Error code e04


If the fan was seized, it is likely bad, even if you freed it. If it doesn't sound the same, or is not as loud as it used to be, it is also most likely bad. If it doesn't move enough air to close the air pressure switch, then you will get an 04 fault, which is an air flow fault. HTH

Pentair Minimax NT 400 heater. fan keeps coming


Sounds like the controller is the problem. This is the circuit board that has the display and controls on it. You can swing that panel open and try tapping on the white plastic cover the controller is under that. This might get the fan relay to release but you will have to replace the controller it will stick again
