SOURCE: E04 comes on after fan purge cycle-Pentair minimax nt pool heater

This is a fan falure code. It can mean the fan has problems (not likley if the fan goes and isn't labored) You have a sensor in your exaust (probally not this if you don't get a good start) The culperet is probally in the negetive pressure sensor. This is a 2-3 inch disc with wires going to the controls and a rubber tube going to the fan. Pull the tube from the fan and make sure the fan fitting is clear (poke with a tooth pic) Be sure their are no kinks in the hose. If the heater is 4 years old the diaprahm could be bad in the pressure sensor. Check the other things first but this is probally your problem. Good luck, hope this helped.

SOURCE: should the pentair minimax pool heater be wired to line or load?

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

Line side for a couple of reasons: First, there are more safety switches than just the pressure switch to ensure the unit shuts off prior to damaging itself. Second, and probably more importantly, removing power from the unit each time the time clock turns it off will keep erasing the temperature settings you enter. After a while that gets old for most people. Coincidentally, when pressure switched fail, they fail as open making the heater inoperable. While they could conceivably short closed and cause the situation you fear, I have never seen that in 20 years of servicing heaters.

Can the minimax natural gas be converted to propane like a laundry dryer ?


Check out this link: http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/pools/msg0522222224880.html

Per this link, these are the parts that you'll need to replace:
Natural gas burner tray 472028
Propane burner tray 471931
Propane gas valve 471671

Remember to always be safe around electricity and gas lines. If you're not sure then hire a professional.

Is there any difference in bottle gas heater and natural gas heater


by bottle i am assuming you mean propane. yes there is a difference , natural gas is mostly methane gas (ch4) a very small molecule, propane is (c3h8) a much larger molecule. so they require different gas nozzles and cannot run a unit on the other fuel, some can be converted to run other gas. generally natural gas units are cheaper to run, but cost more for installation as a gas line has to be run to the unit and benefit of not running out of fuel. hope this helps.

My minimax heater 250,000 btu heater keeps sooting up. it ran for years fine my tech. has cleaned it twice in the last six months


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

Check all the burners for nice bright blue flames standing 3-4" off the burners when it lights. If any are heavily orange in color you need to clean out that tube and the jet in front of that tube. If they are mostly blue but short and wispy in nature check inlet and outlet gas pressures at the gas valve to ensure there is adequate gas. Finally, be sure there is adequate air flow into the heater. Not enough combustion air can cause sooting issues as well.
