Question about Hayward 250kbtu Ng Pool Heater - Inground
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.
