Question about Teledyne Laars Laars Lite 2 Pool Heater 125,000 Btu / Propane Gas

1 Answer

The heater come on and cycles on and off, but the water no longer reaches the correct temperature. Pool techicina has replaced the thermostat and disassembled and cleaned something, but it still will not reach temperature. The dials are set to max and it is the same when set to pool or spa.

This could be the flow rate / value...maybe the unit is under rated in its BTU value. But if it did work fine and heat the water ok then its not this...next thing would be the system control switches...each of these needs to be tested one by one to see if it cutting out the system too early...failing that it is the flame being produced and the heat value is cold see if the flames are blue or yellow...blue is fine nice and hot yellow is too cold to heat the water passing through

How can I reset a water heater that overheated?


There is only one reason a water heater will overheat and that is a faulty thermostat.
It is the thermostat that allows the temperature to rise to a preset or selectable temperature, depending on the type, and when the correct temperature is reached the thermostat will switch off the supply to the element.

The most common type of thermostat is the traditional bi-metal type which has proved long-lasting and reliable but electronics have moved in to this field adding expense and complications.

Whichever type is fitted to your heater, in any case of overheating the thermostat should be replaced or in the case of an electronic thermostat it should be repaired and calibrated.

Heater temp is 78 the water temp 68 how do I reset heater temp to match pool temp.


Sounds like a faulty temp sensor. Check it for debris, clean it good and see if that does it. If not try replacing it.

How To get help Turning On Your Water in titusville pa


Hi. Did the water get really hot just before the water heater tank shut off? If so, and if your water heater is electric, the temporary fix is to shut off the main, and water heater circuit breakers, (at the main electrical panel) then remove the upper cover, on the metal face of the water heater (there are two, upper and lower) Then carefully remove the insulation, and plastic thermostat cover. Underneath, there will be a large red button, located at the top of the upper thermostat. If you can see the red button through the thermostat cover, then removal is unnecessary. When pushed in, if you hear a "click" it should fire up the water heater. you will hear sizzling and popping noises to let you know it's on. Remember, this is very temporary! As this is an over temperature, (high limit switch) safety device, take replacement of the thermostats seriously ok? My suggestion may or may not be the answer you are looking for, depending on your water heater, but is standard for the majority of home residential electric water heaters.
If you attempt the replacement yourself, be sure to get the exact same, upper and lower thermostats! That way you will be sure the old wiring will reach and you wont have to replace any wires, with longer one's. The correct wiring diagrams will be on the back of the new thermostat's packaging. match up the correct diagram to your water heater, BEFORE disconnecting anything. When done, BE SURE the thermostat's are in their retainer clips, and are touching the bare tank tightly, on the backside. They cant measure temperature without contact.

I have a laars jandy 250 lt gas pool heater that only heats luke warm. The heater cycles normally then heats up but stops before reaching operating temp. No service lights and thermal switches are g


I do not have a handy but mine has a temperature setting at the heater and one on the remote. it is possible that one of the settings is low. the pool or spa temp is sensed at the heater and with the water temp located in the pool lines. so both the control board and the heater are sensing the water temperature.

Hs error code what does it mean?


Water Temperature Sensing Error

A) Inlet water temperature sensor is reporting a temperature in excess of 104 degrees. Normal operation resumes 2 minutes after inlet water temperature sensor reports temperatures of 104 degrees or less. This error functions in both normal and remote thermostat modes.
or

B) Inlet water temperature sensor is reporting a temperature change at a rate faster than 6 degrees in 60 seconds, indicating a potentially damaging low water flow condition. Normal operation resumes when temperatures stabilize. If this condition is detected 3 times, the heater will lock-out until the electrical power is cycled off and back on.

Why is there no hot water from shower overheat light on all the time .


The water heater has detected that it failed to shut off when the water reached the temperature set on the thermostat,

In order to prevent the water from boiling and causing the heater to burst from increased pressure, the high temperature limit switch operated and shut the power off. It left an indicator on so that you would know that water would not longer be heated. The water in the tank cooled and will remain cool until the switch is reset.

If there is a problem with the thermostat, this cycle will repeat until you have the defective part(s) removed and replaced.

Good luck!

Allheaters run off of a thermostat just like the heat to your house. It will shut off once heated to the selected temperature. Turn up the temperature, and monitor it for a couple days.

The heater keeps shutting off, i unplug and wait a few minutes, then try again it works for a few more minutes then shuts off again.


Defective thermostat is shutting it down before it reaches the correct temperature. Essentially the thermostat is acting too sensitive.

Finding parts could be tricky probably worth replacing for the potential repair cost.

Running time of dishwasher


he cycles times are too long If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
Water pre-heating Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water. 

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Cycle not completing See "The cycle doesn't complete" section. 

The cycle doesn't complete If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

  • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.


  • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.


Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.
