"CFH" is Call for heat. That means your heater is trying to fire (not an error code). "HL2" is an error code which stands for "High limit #2". This error means the water in the heat exchanger is too hot,and the heater shuts itself down to prevent damage. Most common causes are poor water flow .Make sure the correct pump is running,and you have at least 10psi on the filter gauge. also be sure that the bypass valve is at least 1/2 way closed.The Bypass valve is located on the return line after the filter just passed the first tee.

Why do I get CFH but then no SPK?

CFH = Call For Heat
SPK = Ignitor is Sparking - attempting to ignite raw fuel

In a lot of cases, Pressure Switch opens up, CFH , is cancelled and therefor no ignition sequence.
try cleaning filter really good. If cartridge, may be time for an overnight soak.

Error code cfh

cfh is not an error code. it stands for "call for heat". back wash the pool filter. check continuity of pressure switch to ensure it is closing at proper pressure. jump pressure switch and if heater fires, there lies your problem

Error code h4-01 ar-c260m?

Your fuser is not warming up in time. 01 is for HL2 the lower heat lamp. Cancel with Sim code 14/execute/yes and let the machine reboot. If the code comes back you must replace the lamp.

What is CFH

CFH stands for "Call For Heat"
CFH means "Call for heat" and SPK means "Spark". They are status codes, not fault codes.
It basically means that the heater is turning on the heat mode and spark should appear shortly after the CFH code appears. At this point the heater should be igniting and the heater heating up.
If you are having a fault issue with the heater, please let us know if there is anything else that we can do for you!

Raypak gas pool heater with error code HL2

Do you have power to the heater?If you do then I would look for a hi limit switch to reset.It might be the pump you have to reset.

Raypak pool heater, error HL2

It is probably the pressure switch. Remove the hose from the inducer and **** in and then blow lightly several times. It is probably stuck in the either the open or closed position. If this isn't the problem, check your manual reset limit switchs to make sure they haven't tripped. Also, make sure your are getting power to the ignighter as well.
