Question about Lite On Laars Lite 2 Heaters: 250,000BTU MV Heater

1 Answer

Laars Lite 2 - Turns off after 5mins of being on!

I have a 10 month old new Laars pool heater.
Just fired up for summer (off during winter).
Pilot lights, boiler kicks in...then after 5mins everything turns off.
Then have to do it all again!
Thermostat is set properly, just don't know why it all shuts itself down?

    Have the same problem - heater works well, intermittently. Checked (methodically) the following:

    • pressure switch

    • fusible link

    • fireman's switch

    • on\off switch

    • hi-temp limit

    • potentiometer (thermostat)

    and thought I'd discovered a problem with the on/off switch. Bypassed to no avail - still performing intermittently. Very frustrating. Would recommend anything but Laars!

    Would appreciate any help....

Every year I have a problem getting it to light. The pilot is lit but the heater will not turn on. It is 8 years old and I have been having trouble with it since day one. My pool guy comes out fires it up...

First, check the gas valve and make sure the valve in all the way to "on" not "pilot".After shutting to off for the winter, and not turning the valve all the way on start up could be it. If that is ok, check/replace the pilot generator next to the pilot lite. One question. Does the pilot go out soon after calling for heat? Next, if you have it on "spa" or "pool" on the temperature adjusting module, try the other setting. eg. If it is on "pool", switch the knob to "spa" and adjust the temperature.
