Heater temp is 78 the water temp 68 how do I reset heater temp to match pool temp.


Sounds like a faulty temp sensor. Check it for debris, clean it good and see if that does it. If not try replacing it.

Jandy panel reads 89 degrees, sta rite heater panel reads the right temp 78.


Standard 10K ohm sensor appears to be compromised. Replace it.
You have one for water temp, one for air temp, and one for the solar if you have one.

Have a 3.5 year old Jandy Aqualink RS 4 --- the air temp is reading correctly (78 F) but the pool temp is reading (201 F). What could this issue be? Pool sensor gone bad? If so, how do I repair or replace...


It is most likely not a bad reading on the on the display.

One culprit of a false temp reading could be:
If the temperature sensor is installed after the heater and the circulation pump is clogged or failing, this would allow super heated water to reach the temperature sensor and give you that reading. However, most pool/spa heaters have a high limit switch that would shut down the heater @ 150 degrees F. So this is also unlikely.

The most reasonable answer is to replace the temperature sensor.

If you refer to page 22 in this manual http://www.jandy-downloads.com/pdfs/Allbutton_manual.pdf
you will see that the temperature sensor is installed on terminals 5 and 6.
Trace these wires. They will goto a thermowell (which holds the temperature sensor) either in the pool plumbing, or to a temperature sensor in the heater itself. Temperature sensors when in the heater are located typically above the inlet/outlet header. There will be some disassembling required to access it in this case.
If it is in the heater and you need more help, e-mail me @ adamh@newconceptchem.com

Please take the time to give me a positive rating on this post if I have helped.

Thanks

Temperature on the display is not the actual temperature. Heater will not come on


Without more info like what the temp reading is and what the actual temp is it is hard to say. The first thing that comes to mind is temp sensor has gone bad. This is located on the side of the water manifold and the wires run back to the control board. You can order one with a model number from your local pool store. These are very easy to replace I hope this does it.

Pool Heater Mis-reading Temp.


Your temp sensors are on the heater, a small tube that slides into the water manifold, usually on the left side. On the remote it will be in one of the pipes coming from the pump or the filter. If it is after the heater you should move it to between the filter and heater. It will be a tube that is in the pipe with a stanless steel clamp holding it in place.
To find out wich one it is you will need to remove the remote from the system by takeing the wires that go to it from the wireing inside the heater and wire nuting the wires in the heater together. If the heater runs normal then it is the sensor for the remote if not it is the sensor for the heater. Let me know how you do and if need be we can get a little more specfic for your system. good luck.

Sta Rite Sr333na Max E Therm Pool & Spa Heater gauge stuck?


Anytime the heater is reading the water temp to be above what it actually is, especially 126, the problem is the Thermistor, or Temp Sensor, for the heater. This is a very easy part to replace. The Thermistor is located on the manifold, on the left side, between the top two bolts.

Sorry this is a late response! Hope that it helps!
