The function lock is ON. It acts as a child lock. Push both the ^ and v at the same time for a couple of seconds and the light will go Off.

I have an A. O. Smith Model FPSH 40-261 hot water heater. It won't heat water. there is a green light on the control flashing. What does it mean?


AO Smith uses the Honeywell ICON gas valve with green indicator light.
Some models use White Rodgers Intellivent with a row of indicator lights.

The gas control blinks the error code:

I have a Pentair Minimax NT 250k electronic heater. Turned the heater on today and it does not get through startup sequence. It flashes - - -, then flashes 888 (with red service light), then back to - -...


I would say the problem is the thermistor. The board will light up, the SW switch is green, but you get a display that flashes dashed lines and then what looks like 888. That is a start up code. The thermistor is located on the side where the water enters the heater. There are two screws at the top of the side panel. Undo the screws and lift the panel off. The thermistor is a probe with 2 small wires coming out and lead to the control panel. It is a very simple fix and is usually the problem if you have not experienced any other issues. The part runs between 30 and 45 dollars. Most pool stores would carry this.
thanks let me know if that fixed the problem

I have a Pentair minimax 250k electronic. Opened pool today and when I turned power on to the heater, it won't get through startup sequence. Dashed lines flash, then 888 and service light comes on. ...


Most of the time I have found the problem to be the thermistor. It is located on the water manifold of the heater. Usually the panel lights, flashes then to 888 and back to dashed lines. SW light is green, and service light is red. It costs 25 to 45 dollars, and takes 5 minutes to repair. New thermistor looks identical to old so replacing it is very easy.
thanks please let me know if this was helpful

I have a 1994 plymouth sundance when the fan is turned on the temp, and fuel gauge peg out (read maximum) the volt gauge reads zero. Also both green arrow turn singal indicators on the dash light up. ...


this car is obd 1 so your would need to have a scanner that connects to OBD1, the caonnection ie under the dash, but is diffrent from the newer cars with OBDII, this problem sounds like a bad feed due to a short maybe in the blower resistor or the heater controls, i would start with the resistor then work my way to controls take a good look at the fan switch, hope this helps.

How do you shut down


the pilot light always stays on, its designed to allow your heater to turn on by itself without you needing to light a match every time. if the pilot light is burning you have nothing to worry about. its when the pilot light goes out that a small amount of gas leaks into the room. and by small i mean smaller than a hand held lighter... if you still want to shut the entire thing down you could turn off the gas line feeding the heater or possibly the whole house, otherwise the pilot light will stay on. as far as the actual heater turning off, thats probably controlled by some sort of thermostat somewhere. if you set the temp to very cold it should stay off. if that doesn't work then you may need a new thermostat.

Can't turn the heater off.


If none of the controls on the heater/AC panel are working, then you have a vacuum problem and the default position is the heater setting. There's a diagram of the vacuum system on a label on the front under the hood just in front of the radiator. It's a very simple system so don't be overwhelmed.
If the label is gone, go to your local library and check the Chilton's manual.
Your system must have vacuum to the switches for any kind of control. Be carefull of the small vacuum lines under the hood. Most at this age are very brittle.
Hope this helps, Rick.
