If this is a standing pilot you will want to check your voltage out put from the pilot. For this you will need a milivolt meter. The pilot should supply 500-700mv (1/2-3/4v) It only takes 200mv to open the pilot valve but needs another 300+ to open the main half of the gas valve. This would be the first thing I would check. If this is the problem you will need to replace the pilot assembly. If your getting the power you need from the pilot then it is probally your gas valve itself. Good luck.

Have pilot but burner will not start. Gas line is


There is an internal pressure switch for this unit that must sense water pressure before the gas valve solenoid is energized so that burner will light. If the air line to the pressure switch is leaking or has failed or is blocked it will not light at all. Additionally if you have had mice or smaller rats get into the unit, check the wiring to the pressure switch for any signs of damage. They can cause havoc! (Personal experience)

If you need further assistance please include your exact model number of your pool heater in your response.

Thanks for using FixYa.

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 .

Pool Heater Light main burner then goes out


take millivolt reads while main burner is on.i suspect you will see a drop in voltage until you get to point where it will no longer operate burner(around 200mv).if this is the case you probably have poor pilot characteristics due to dirty pilot,pilot out of adjustment ,obstruction or insufficient gas pressure
