1F Error Code on Hayword Heater

Our heater is only 2 years old and we are getting an error code of 1f. If we turn it off a couple of times it will start and heat. Is this something that can be fixed by owner?

IF stands of igniton failure. Many things can cause this. Most notable, is a clogged or dirty burner orifice. The two middle ones are the most important. But i would clean them all out. They remove with a 5/16" wrench. Improper gas pressure could also cause this. However, you need a special tool, a manometer, to read this.

Actually IF, not 1F. this means ignition failure. And... It is the same as lockout.
Ignition lock out, means that the heater had three separate attempts to fire up, to have ignition. After three attempts, with no ignition of main burners, you will get the fault code. You clear this by cycling the power off and then back on. You may need to do this 2 or 3 times. Some times air is in the main gas supply line?
if this is a new start up of the heater at the beginning of the season, this occurs, Because we are human, we tend to make mistakes.
And we may overlook the obvious... is the gas valve in the on position? , and is the gas shut off valve on the supply line, open?
if the obvious is all good, then continue with your troubleshooting, next up would be to check the hot surface igniter. And the flame sensor. Then check and clean all mean burger orifices. Especially the most left one. Since it is closest to the igniter on this unit. But make sure you clean all of them anyways.

What is a 1F code on the hayward pool heater


The code you are referring to is actually IF, not 1F. It stands for ignition failure.
If the control exceeds the maximum number of ignition retries or recycles the heater will shut down and go into lockout. Automatic reset is 60 minutes.

I HAVE PROBLEM WITH HEATER IS SWOING 1F IN THE SCREEN


YOur 1f code is actually a IF code which stands for "ignition failure".
This can be caused by many things, but the most likely is either the ignitor has failed, or the flame sensor has failed.

Make sure the gas manual gas valve is open. Remove from panel so that you can see the ignitor.
Turn off power, then turn back on. After 90 seconds, the ignitor should start to glow red hot. If this is not occuring, then it is likely the ignitor or ignitor wiring.

If the ignitor does glow, then the heater ignites, but still goes off showing the IF code, then it is the flame sensor.

If the ignitor glows, and the heater does not ignite, it is likely the gas valve or ignition control.

As stated above, the ignitor is most likely.

Code 1F


"IF" or" Ignition failure", simply means you heater didn't fire. Be sure your gas is on,and if on propane be sure there is at least 30% in the tank (and the valve is open).Also check whether your "Glow plug" ignitor Glows, or your spark ignitor sparks (depending on which kind you have).

Washing Machine 8kg - Westinghouse LT8195A is showing fault code 1f. What is the full description of this code please?


Hi,

I was unable to figure out any error which says 1F. I suppose you wanted to say F1.

Check the fault code status :

F1 means Water supply/low water fill .

Thanks

LG dishwasher not working showing 1F in timer display


I am not aware of an LG code 1F. But there is an error code "1E"
After you double check that the water valve is open that feeds the dishwasher, focus on the inlet valve (solenoid)
As you remove the inlet valve, if you see the screen is filled with gunk, clean it and retest.
Good Luck!
