This code if for ignition failure. Your glow plug has probably gone bad and will need to be replaced.

e05 error code means shorted stack flu switch or sensor. oder heaters have the switch, newer heaters have the sensor. make sure you know which one you have before ordering a replacement.

Try changing the "stack flu sensor". It could be the sensor is bad or the sensor could be detecting a bigger problem. The sensor can not be jumped out.

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.

Pentair mastertemp 200 will work for a while and then stop and give a E05 code. Any Ideas


If you are firing, and then going off and getting an E05, your igniter is to blame. It may be glowing but it's getting weak. The diagnostic goes further but that is usually the fix. with inactivity, the igniter is always to blame. You really need to fire it off weekly to make it reliable.

E05 error message & Service light on What does this mean? Is it something that can be fixed easily?


E05 is Ignition / Flame Failure in this model.
The most common cause of this is a bad ignitor, but can also be a bad flame sensor or ignition module.
Here is a link to the original manual with a very good service and troubleshooting section to accurately describe how to do this. I will put a simpleanswer on here, but it might be neccessary to do some reading too.

Turn off power to heater.
remove both front doors to compartment
Turn on power to heater.
Make sure the mode is set to pool/spa on.
turn temperature up to desired
within 30 seconds the fan should come on.
once the "thermostat" light comes on in the front LCD then pay attention to the ignitor

The ignitor should now be glowing. (if ignitor dosent glow, repeat this process and use a multimeter to ensure power is getting to the ignitor)ignitor part number is 471602

after 30 more seconds you should hear a little "pop" coming from the gas valve.
This is the gas valve opening to try to ignite. If the ignitor is working and the burner ignites, and then goes off with an E05 code, then this would indicate a bad flame sensor (part number 471603)

in rare cases, this code can be tripped by a lose wire on either of these parts.
The parts diagram in the manual on pages 33-34 will help to guide you where to look for these parts. It is always best to familiarize yourself with the heater before work is done.

Tonight my master temp 250 heated the spa to 80 degrees. I went out to jump in and saw error code E05. I shut it down and killed power for a little while. Restarted system, blower kicked on, burner light...


You are right about the ignitor. Depending on how old your heater is. The ignitor can become weak and flame rectification will be intermittent. You may have to replace the ignitor assembly or at lease check to see that it's not corroded enough to impede gas flow.

Code E05


E05 and E06 is the error codes for a faulty stack flue sensor. try changing the sensor first is the cheapest. if that doesn't work check for corrosion on control board in which case will have to change out board.
