You probally just picked up enough dirt to clog the filter enough to shut the heater down. If the water flow slows enough the heater will boil the water inside it You have a presure switch in the heater to avoide this. All you probally have to do is clean the filter and baskets to get enough flow to start it again.

Might be the safety thermocouple is faulty or the pilot light is not heating the thermocouple bulbs - perhaps the brackets have become distorted and need realigning.

Pilot won't stay on


Burners don't have anything to do with the problem of pilot not lighting. Is the problem that flame will not 'stay' lit? Or you can't even get a flame to ignite? If former: possible bad pilot generator or bad gas valve. If latter, possible bad gas valve or no fuel to ignite.

Pilot light wont stay onfor outside pool heater. Gas co made a service call & relit the pilot light it went out again 4 days later.


There is a thermo couple that keeps the gas on. The pilot light bracket has a small screen where the gas comes through that can get clogged and cause the pilot light to burn away from the thermo couple which would cause it to think the flame has went out and shut the gas off. Or the thermo couple has went bad itself. If you try cleaning the screen use canned air and gently blow it through the orfice once you have taken it off. If you don't know what a thermo couple is or looks like here's a picture of a generic one that will give you an idea. Usually there's a bracket that holds this in place. f1b528a.jpg
