Good Day To You,
I have a few possibilities, since the pilot light is on that i will list and their fixes keep in mind that the first one is simple, it makes me laugh when people ask me is it plugged in. Here it goes.

  1. Is Gas Valve in the "ON" position. The fix is to turn it to the on position. Easy I know, but I've made that kinda mind lapse before.
  2. Possible Air in gas line. The fix is to Cycle the ignition sequence (turn on/off) until air is out of the Gas line. Listen closely there should be an audible click if not. Then move on to the next possible scenario.
  3. Gas valve failed. If the Gas valve has power to it and you cannot hear an audible clicking noise then you have a failure in the gas valve. The fix is to replace the gas valve part# R0317100 for NAT Gas.
It is at this point that depending on your abilities and proper testing equipment, volt meter, you may need to call a service technician. Beyond the Gas valve you have control boards, circuits, etc. I hope this helps get you going. Thanks for using FixYa, please comment back if you have any further questions. Have a great weekend. Jeff

Jandy lite 2 pool heater will not stay lit.

I'm having the same issue as the above user with Jandy Lite 2 (which from what I can tell stands for the number of times that you can get this POS to work annually)!
The unit LIGHTS OFF, but WON'T STAY LIT! Igniter engages, gas valve opens, unit lights, burns for 10 seconds, and flames out. Error code FL 2, after third attempt, already replaced the flame sensor....

Getting FL0 error message. heater is coming on, then off with error message. my heater is a jandy lite 2 400K propane unit

Thank you for posting your question here on

Page 34 and 35 of your manual, found here, describe FL0 as a flow issue most likely caused by dirty filters. Depending on the type of filter you have a good cleaning/backwash will usually remedy that. It is also possible the unit's pressure switch, which senses water flow and therefore reacts to dirty filters when present, may have failed, especially if you winterize the heater in a cold climate and leave water in the switch which can burst the diaphragm inside.

Start with cleaning the filter. If the heater still won't fire jump out the pressure switch while the pump is running to confirm the part is the problem. Assuming it is replacing it with a new pressure switch which should be under $75. The part number can be found in the rear of the manual.

Fl0 and fl3 service lights come on have flow to unit just will not fire up

The flo code indicates the the water pressure switch is open. If you know that you have more than the minimum amount of flow going through the heater, then the problem is a clogged or defective pressure switch. The pressure switch is located on top of the inlet/outlet header and can be found at an online store or a local pool and spa company. A generic may be used in place of the manufaturer part.
