Sta rite sr200na heater. flashes 180 then "r 8" then shuts off

I own a sta rite sr200na spa heater. i was having a problem with the heater reading a higher tempature that it actually was in the spa. i believe this is due to the thermistor being bad. however, i started having a second problem that seems to supercede the thermastor. when i turn on the heater, it flashes 180 on the LED, then flashes "r 8" then shuts off. do you know why this may be happening?

SOURCE: sta-rite gas heater won't ignite

I am not sure if either of these issues have been solved, but with the AGS light on, you will need to check the flow of water first. If it is below what is needed for the heater, this will light up. If the water flow is fine, then check the water temp on the display panel. If it is readin higher than that of the ACTUAL pool water temp, you need to replace the Thermister.

If the water temp displayed is about that of the pool water, then the Automatic Gas Shutoff will be the next thing to check and replace.

You can tell IF a Sta-Rite heater has been converted by the model number. The Convesion Kit is supposed to come with a sticker stating that the heater has been converted, but there are two options for the kit and the one without the sticker is cheaper.

If you take off the top two halves of the heater, on the Junction Box there should be a Tri-fold card there. Unfold it, if the model number ends with NA it is a Natural Gas Heater, LP would be Propane.

SOURCE: Water Temprature read 126 on heater and will not Fire

This is a problem with your thermister (heat sensor) You will find this on the left side of the water manifold about half way down. I'm not sure but I think it is a small tube that slides into the manifold and if you follow the wires back to the board it just plugs in. The part is reasonable priced for a heater part and very easy to install. Good luck.

Our spa heater has no lights on and will not turn on. When I reset the breaker all the lights come on and it shows 180 in led display and then r 8, then shuts itself off.


If one of my customers had this issue with their heater I would call the Sta Rite technical support at 888-782-7483 and they would likely be able to help you diagnose this issue.

Please let me know how this works out and ask subsequent questions. Thank you.

Temperature reads 125 degrees.


I am not sure if you have solved this issue, or not, but just in case. The problem is the Thermister, or temp sensor. That will need to be replaced since it is reading the water temp at 125.

The Thermister is located on the manifold, left hand side, between the first two bolts. It is pretty easy to change out and this will correct the problem.
