Question about Pentair Minimax NT Heater

Open Question

Purex Triton 400 Minimax Plus comes on and turns off after a short time. If I turn the temperature knobs all "hot" then it stays on, but only gets the water lukewarm. It used to heat the spa perfectly at about 1/4 to 1/3 temperature setting on the knob. Is there a way to reset the knobs so that the temperature is controlled correctly?

SOURCE: Purex Triton Minimax 400 pool/spa heater not igniting

This sounds like you have a problem with your pilot. You can check this with a small mirror to see if their is a spark when you turn it on. If you have any soot build up on the pilot that will stop the spark and keep it from lighting also. If you have a short on your pilot wire this could be the problem also. I hope this helps, good luck.

Purex Triton MiniMax Plus 400 power light is not turning on nor is unit. Checked for power going to unit and no fuses appear to be blown. Thoughts on what might be the issue? Thanks, Dan


if you have incoming power, you may have a bad transformer. those systems run on 24-28v. you can check from yellow wire to yellow wire coming off the transformer to see if you have anything coming out. must check wires coming out of the transformer to each other, it won't register if you check each one individually to ground. hope this helps...
