Question about Hayward 250kbtu Ng Pool Heater - Inground
I`m a new pool owner, I hired a company to open my pool but they did not take care of my heater. When I tried to light the pilot it did not light at all. I tried to light it manuallybut it is hiden and I can not reach it. Also seems to miss a wire from the lighter (red button) and from the top of the box from which the pipe for the burners and the pilot comes out. Any sugestions? thanks, Andres.
If this is electronic ignition, I suspect your glow plug is in need of replacement. You might get it lit manually ... but you would have to be thre every time it wanted to come on to relight it IF YOU CAN REACH IT. If this has a pilot ... your thermocouple may be malfunctioning or there may be dirt in the jet.
I would call the company back and ask them to take another look. If they dont show ... there are probably other such in your community.

Sounds like you have a Millivolt heater and the wire connecting the ignitor to the back of the red button is disconnected. It should be a short red wire that plugs into the back of the red button. If this is disconnected, you will not be getting a spark when you press the red button. Try that first.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
I am not aware nor could I find EO4...try the owner's manual:
Page 38 on has your troubleshooting directions. Please be careful. If you are not familiar with testing these items it would be in your best interests to hire a pool service pro. Depending on the installation you could have 230V in the heater and one false move could ground the unit and cause extensive damage.
