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.

Doesnt heat the pool like last year


Check the bypass at the header where the water pipes connect. It may be stuck. If all else is the same that's where I'd start looking.

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...

I was given a purex/triton 400 pool heater


It will not work more than a few minuets. The small tank will not contain enough volume required for the liquid propane to boil off the amount of vapor you need to feed the heater. In fact you are more likely to damage the heater if it does run because it will be a very lean burn.

Have a Triton Millivolt pool heater pilot is lit and nothing!!


Low out put voltage from the pilot generator and/or an open circuit in the control circuit...the most common is a bad pressure switch (dirty filters can hamper pressure switch operation).
