Is the heater a natural gas or propane heater, If propane you are probably getting a build up of soot. this is usually caused by improper installation or inproper gas supply. ocassionally if there is alot of wind it can cause a downdraft that blows out the flame. perhaps the sensor is touching a part of the heater that makes it read improperly additonally you may want to check to see that all the wires are free from touching any heater parts

How do I adjust the pressure switch on my hayward h250 heater


The purpose of the pressure switch is to verify the pool pump is operating properly and water pressure is present in the heating chamber. When water pressure is not present, the heater control system is designed to not allow initiation of flame. The pressure switch is preset at the factory for deck level installations. When the heater is located below the level of the spa or pool, the pressure switch may require an adjustment to compensate for the no-flow static head.

CAUTION: The Hayward Pool Heater is essentially a furnace. A trained technician should be consulted to repair it. DO NOT OPERATE the Hayward Pool Heater without a properly functioning and calibrated water pressure switch. The pressure switch adjustment requires both the pool pump and the heater be operational. As a result, extreme caution should be used during this procedure since sources of energy can not be isolated during the procedure.

The following procedure is recommended to calibrate the pressure switch.

1. The water pressure switch is located behind the front service panel. The pressure switch is typically on the left side, above the burners.
2. Be sure the water filter is clean before making the adjustment.
3. With the pump and heater system switch on, carefully turn the pressure switch adjustment dial clockwise, until a click is heard from the gas valve.
4. Turn the adjustment dial counterclockwise 1/4 turn.
5. Turn the pump off and on several times. The heater should shut off immediately when the pump is shut off. If the heater fails to shut down when the pump is off, repeat the steps above until the pressure switch is properly adjusted.
6. If the adjustment process fails to produce proper results the pressure switch should be replaced.

Reddish smoke


Sounds like it possibly may have frozen internally. Ice blockage and water was not circulating thru it, yet the ignitors fired and fired until it overheated and shut down. Possible that the exchangers may have been fried, that is why the funny color of smoke. Once weather is warmer and not frozen, run the pump with heater off and check for leaks. If no leaks in the heater and you can confirm water is circulating thru your system (water returning into pool thru the return lines) turn or fire up the heater and inspect/monitor its operation.

When the burners ignite, within one minute it starts making a loud banging noise and then the HS code comes on and it shuts down. the noise continues for about 15 to 30 seconds after the burners shut...


This sounds like a low water flow situation. The heater is telling you that the high limit sensor is curring heater operation. The noises are the heat exchangers boiling the water either due to a blockage in the exchanger , a bad mixing vlve, or most likely poor water flow. This is tough to troubleshoot through a posting like this, but 1st thing is 1st. Check your water flow and make sure it is minimum 50 Gallons per minute.

Hayward H 300 series pool heater for an inground pool. Pilot light is lit. Filter is clean. If I jump the terminals the heater will go on. If not the heater will not start.


I have an H300 Millivolt Hayward heater. It will start and run for about 1 minute then shuts off along with the pilot going out. I've tried cleaning all the terminals and running all new wiring but same result. I've also jumped out the TH to TH terminals leaving the jumper in place and it still shuts down after 1 minute. Any idea what that could be ?
