All you have to do is check continuity across the ignitor. does it have continuity? if no you need to check your thermal fuse for continuity? it is a white peice with 2 wires going to it and sits on the blower houseing. if no then it could be your timer. or yes it could be your flame sensor. that sits off the side of your flume tube where the ignitor is. but highly likly it's just your thermal fuse.

Heater will not ignite


  1. Do you have a standing pilot style heater = Milivolt
  2. or is it an IID = Spark style ignitor
  3. Or... Hot surface Ignitor = glows red hot like an auto cigarette lighter?

Most common problem I have come across over the last few weeks, is pressure switch not closing, meaning - dirty filter. Try cleaning your filter: backwash or rinse cartridges.

  1. is pilot staying on, and burning well?
    1. If so, is htr's gas valve in ON position?
  2. Do you hear sparking?
    1. If No, then one of the safety switches is keeping heater from firing...
      1. Toggle switch - on/off
      2. Thermostat - turned up high?
      3. Pressure switch - closes circuit when pump comes on
      4. 2 each high limits
      5. Fusible link / roll out switch
    2. If yes, either gas valve is off, is bad or the Ignition module is bad? Some call it grey box.
      1. You will need to test for voltage at the common and MV posts of the gas valve - 24 to 28 volts. If voltage = bad gas valve; if no voltage = bad IID Module (Intermittent Ignition Device)
  3. Do you see a bright red glow in the burner tray area?
    1. If yes, either fuel supply is off, or Ignitor has worn out and the glow is not hot enough to ignite raw fuel.
    2. If no, check voltage at Ignitor - depends on make and model of heater- could be as low as 24 volts and as much as 110 volts. So... No voltage at the supply wires = bad sending component, again depend on brand and model, could be ignition module, could be circuit board?
    3. If yes voltage, bad Ignitor
      1. Again, this is if fuel supply is confirmed.
Good Luck

I can smell gas but heater will not ignite. Display shows that the heat is on. Thanks!


First of all, be careful while looking into the system when the gas comes on because it could unexpectedly ignite and burn you.

You listed this question in the Jandy Lite 2 Natural Gas Pilot Light Heater. If your heater is a pilot light heater then the pilot light needs to be lit so when the gas comes on it will ignite.

If your unit contains a thermal ignitor it should glow brightly when the gas starts. If it is glowing then it is probably not glowing brightly enough or not in the right place and therefore needs to be either replaced or repositioned. If it is not glowing then you should measure the voltage using a volt/ohm meter going to the ignitor. If it reads about 115 VAC then the ignitor is broken and needs to be replaced. If it reads much lower voltage then the board that supplies power to it probably has a problem on it. It may be a defective relay, bad solder joint or some other problem. I would first re-solder the relay connections to the board and see if that fixes it. Otherwise the board will need to be replaced.

If the unit has a spark ignitor and you hear a spark sound it may be too low power or the spark probe might be in the wrong place and therefore not delivering the spark to the fuel air mixture. If you don't hear the spark then you may have a bad relay or bad solder joint to it.

Please let me know how this works out. Thank you.

Heater blower goes on an smells like gas and doesn't light


The ignitor is not working. I don't know what kind of ignition your heater has but it is either a thermal ignitor or a spark ignitor. In either case the problem could be in the ignitor or the board that supplies the power to the ignotor.

First of all, be careful while looking into the system when the gas comes on because it could unexpectedly ignite and burn you.

Heater will not come on...gas flows but no igniton...measured voltage to the ignitor=92vac..resistance of ingitor= 60 OHMS


Ive never heard of an ignitor on this model getting 92 VAC. It should be 120 volt.
If the ignitor is getting voltage when it is supposed to , but its not glowing like normal, replace ignitor. And also find out whats up with your electrical.

Ignitor does not glow


the flame sensor rarely goes bad
if the ignitor is not glowing
then thats the problem
take an amp reading it shoud be between
2.7 and 3.6 out of that range it will not glow
if your not getting a reading you need to chase your voltage l1 is you most likely culprit

There is no heat being produced


HI, Remove the front lower panel. Start the dryer and see if the ignitor glows. If it glows but the gas valve does not open, Change the coils on top of the gas valve.
If the ignitor does not glow, test the ignitor for 120V. If there is voltage to the ignitor but no glow, change the ignitor.
If there is no viltage to the ignitor, check continuity on the thermostats and the fuse that are located on the blower housing. Also test the sensor located on the burner.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Dryer will not heat up


Hi, Is this a gas dryer? Sounds like the coils on the gas valve. If the ignitor glows and then shuts off without the flame igniting, this coi;s are the most common fix.
Does this help?

Gas dryer won't heat up


The ignitor can glow and still be defective.
Take a volt meter and check for power at the gas valve while calling for heat.
If you have voltage, replace the coils again.
No voltage, replace the ignitor and flame sensor.

Dryer not heating


Do you get a "glow" the glow (orange in color) is for the gas to be ignited. No glow indicates a no voltage problem to the burner or the ignitor is out. Confirm power to the gas valve area 110V usually. If you have voltage the problem is somewhere in the area your in; probably the ignitor.
If you don't have 110 Volts the problem is in the controls. The fuse link, the timer contacts, the centrifugal switch on the motor, and the heater safety thermostat and operating (s), are all suspect and have to be eliminated 1 by 1. Hope this helps. With any luck all you need is a new ignitor. Clean the duct out while replacing the ignitor. Because the main thing that causes ignitor burn out is low air flow. A kinked Dryer vent hose, lint, and plugged up fan on the motor are the 3 main causes of low air flow. If yours has little holes in the inside cabinet these can get clogged with lint also and cause a problem. Hope this helps and please rate me accordingly Thank you and good luck.

Dryer heating problem


It sounds like an air flow issue. There is a flame sensor on the side of the flame housing. If the venting is not sucking the flame down the tube it will cycle very quickly and never reach the right temp.
