Check your SENSOR. With the Minimax ch heater, you might be using an 'IntelliTouch' panel that controls your equipment. If you are, check the reading that the panel says the water temperature is and then check the temperature of the water 'coming out' (spa??) manually with a floating thermometer. When the heater cycles off, check the difference between the 2 numbers. Say the panel says 102 & the thermometer says 95?? - that is a faulty sensor, telling the heater that the water has reached 102, so it cycles off before ever getting hot. If you're not using the IntelliTouch, you will be checking the display panel on the actual heater itself & again the floating thermometer. Now... if the temperature is less than a 4 degree difference you can always calibrate/or have calibrated the heater.

What would cause the return manifold get so hot it would melt? Water was running thru the manifold and was returning to the pool.


It sounds like the internal by-pass is stuck open, and is not forcing enough water through the heat exchange. The Hi-Limit switches should have shut off the heater before damage occurred, so you have more than one problem with this heater.

This is likely a leaking heat exchanger. These usually fail due to improper water chemistry. This can happen in less than a year if the chemistry is messed up enough. Most culprits are putting chlorine tablets in the skimmer and running the pH or Total Alkalinity tooo low. HTH
