Try consulting the owners manual for these pool heaters. The troubleshooting guide is very thorough. However, it it wont fire at all and the service light comes on, you are probably going to need to replace at best case your ignition, and at worst case, your entire pool heater.

Pool heater will not come on and displays a number 4 and service heater

After reading the manual at, I found the FL4 fault indicates an igniter failure.

The possible causes are:
A. Igniter circuit is open.
B. Element has a fine crack in it.
C. Igniter fault.

The recommended correction is:
A. Check fuses on igniter wires. Identify and correct
loose connections or broken wires. Refer to
qualified personnel.
B. Measure room temperature resistance and
ensure value is in the correct range. See manual
for details. Refer to qualified personnel.
C. Replace igniter. Refer to qualified personnel.

If you have a volt/ohm meter you could measure the AC voltage going to the igniter when it should come on. If you see 120 VAC then replace the igniter. If the ignitor lights up and the gas valve turns on and there is gas pressure then the heater should light up.

If the 120 VAC doesn't get to the igniter you can check the items in the above lists and if not resolved call Jandy technical support at 800-822-7933 and they should be able to help youfigure this issue out. I hope this helps.

My furnace wont come on its an automatic pilot so i dont know what the problem is we have enough propane

Hello, Most newer gas furnaces (propane or natural gas) has one of several different types of igniters. The most common one is called a hot surface igniter. This is a ceramic easy to break, glow coil, glowing igniter. Some has a Spark igniter that lights all the burners from a constant spark and some light the burners off a pilot proven /spark igniter. This one sparks then lights a pilot then the burners will come on. In any case if any of these types are not working they could be cracked or broke. Also the inducer draft motor has to be running, the little motor that hooks to the exhaust of the furnace ( if it has one ). This causes the pressure switch to close then the igniter should come on. My suggestion is to call a qualified service tech from your area to assist you. To determine which one of these may be your problem they will have to perform several test. Hope you get going soon. I hope this helped. J

My 200,000 BTU heater was converted to propane. Electrical and propane connections met manufacture guidelines. Heater keeps on flicking to Service Heater randomly. Was checked by HVAC tech and found...

If your manifold pressure is off I want to think you did'nt change the washer in the gas pipes inside the heater. It is inside the rear union in the gas pipe that feeds the gas valve. You can get one of these from your pool store or you may be able to go on line to get one sent from the manuifactur.

Pool heater

If the heater fails to ignite after three attempts, the heater will automatically go into Lock Out. This is a safety feature on the heater.

Things for you to look at to see what is causing the problem are the display panel and diagnostic lights. When you turn on the heater, is it reading the correct water temp? If not, the Thermister has gone bad and will need to be replaced. When you try to start the heater, is there an Error Code displayed? Which of the Service Lights are coming on when the heater will not light? If it is the Serivce System, that is usually low flow of water. You may have a dirty filter, skimmer or pump basket full of debris, or a valve not completely open.

If the Service System light is the one coming on, then you will need to take off the top two halves of the heater and turn over the Display Panel. There are diagnostic lights on the back side of the panel. There may be a red light next to any of the following:


If there is a red light next to one of these, then that is what has malfunctioned. If you need an Owner's Manual for the heater, you can find one online at the following link:
