Also you need to inspect the igniter.

SOURCE: Get power, smell gas, no ignition, E05 error

I am not sure if resetting the heater will work, or not, but it is worth a try! What you should do is open the right hand side door, find the POWER toggle switch and turn that off. Then find the Circuit Breaker for the heater and turn that off. Wait about 15 to 20 minutes, the reverse the order- Circuit breaker on, then the heater on. Try and start the heater.

If the error code comes back, check to see if there is glowing of the element. If not, turn over the Display Panel, there are Diagnostic Lights on the backside of the panel. If there is a light on next to a set of letters, that is whta is causing the issue with the heater.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: E04 comes on after fan purge cycle-Pentair minimax nt pool heater

This is a fan falure code. It can mean the fan has problems (not likley if the fan goes and isn't labored) You have a sensor in your exaust (probally not this if you don't get a good start) The culperet is probally in the negetive pressure sensor. This is a 2-3 inch disc with wires going to the controls and a rubber tube going to the fan. Pull the tube from the fan and make sure the fan fitting is clear (poke with a tooth pic) Be sure their are no kinks in the hose. If the heater is 4 years old the diaprahm could be bad in the pressure sensor. Check the other things first but this is probally your problem. Good luck, hope this helped.

This is an ignition flame falure code. Could be you don't have gas getting to the pilot, no spark to ignite the pilot or your ignition is not reading the flame. Sorry to say but it's probally time to get the pool guy out to look at it. Good luck.

I have a Pentair 40,000 BTU pool and spa heater. It comes on and then shuts off in about a minute with an error code appearing in the readout. The error code is E05. What does this mean?


The heater is trying to light but cannot. Either the igniter is broken or you are not getting any gas to the igniter. Check to make sure your gas valves are on.

Cleaning the Thermal couple can work at times, however most times you will need to replace it. You may also be having an issue with the ignition control. You are in pretty deep now and it would seem like you are determined to save this heater, I would change them both.
