Assuming you don't hear any banging noises, that cycle is by design. There is a fault. 2 possible causes are the ignition board is bad, or the ignition sensor is not returning a voltage indicating the flame is lit. Take this out and put the ignition piece on your stove flame. Check for voltage while on flame (DC millivolt setting on multimeter). Put one probe on ground other on sensor lead. If it doesnt have voltage this is bad. If you do, its possible your board is bad.

How do i relight pilot light for hot water again


Me again. You could have replied to me as a COMMENT, then I get a notification. Somewhere at the front with easy access will be a red button, you hold it in for 10 seconds and then press the spark ignitor. IF it lights, you have to hold it for another 30 seconds or so to heat up a safety device called a thermocouple. Release the red button slowly and you should see the flame. If you don't see any flame, keep repeating the task until you do. You have to pull the gas all the way from the propane tank.

The hot tub Hester will not light up pilot but does turn on and bow cold air


Glenn,
Many things could be wrong. First off, the exhaust fan turns always goes on when you turn on(up) the thermostat. It does that to suck out any residual gas in the combustion chamber. After about 10 seconds you should hear a click which is the gas valve opening to let the gas into the chamber. You should also hear a series of clicks for about 10 sec, which is the electronic ignition firing. If you hear the clicking of the ignition, but do not smell gas from the exhaust, then the gas feed is being blocked. If you don\'t hear the ignition clicking then the computer board is detecting a fault condition by one of its sensors: over-temp, water flow, exhaust fan . These are all in series and if one doesn\'t pass then the ignition won\'t fire.

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....

Pilot light keeps going out


pilot light keeps going out! more then likely its the thermal coupling doing this. if bad it shut all gas to heater for a safety measure. just shut power off, then turn gas off and replace it. then you should be ready to go. to relight heater hold down on gas vavle knob in the pilot position, hold down and light it at the coupling where gas comes out. when it is lit, continue to hold down for 60 seconds. release knob very slow. then if its lit, turn to the run position. if flme goes out, wait at least 5 minutes to expel the gas fumes and turn to pilot and try again. good-day !
