I had to replace both hi limit sensors in mine. The sockets that they fit into has a plug inside that corrodes and allows clorine water to escape. I had to put the plugs in with auto gasket sealant around threads only. This solution helps but the sensors should be inspected now and then for corrosion. Lithium grease on electrical conectors on the bottom of sensor helps to. This area is attacked by corrosion big time along with top. (winterizing) On low pressure switch inside the heater the copper tube must be undone on switch or undrained clorine will clog up lower tube with corrosion. This blocks low pressure switch from working. Then you have to cut small piece off and redo the tubing. Been there done that. For the most part the Laars hasnt been a bad pool heater but the hi limit sensors along with the plugs could have been engineered better. Good luck and watch the ph...StLouis

I have a Rheem a/c - heating unit. Model # RKKA A048JK10E. When I turn the heater on the blower does not come on. But it comes on when the A/C is on.


Check your T-stat is programmed correctly. If you have a heat pump your stat should control the blower if you have a gas fired heating system your unit should control the blower.

When main switch to heater is turned on, only the flame comes on - no heat or blower. Have tried numerous times to reset by turning main switch off for five minutes, but still does not work. Any...


Does the fan come on when you turn the Fan to ON at the thermostate? If it does then it could be the blower board not turning the low speed blower tap on. Or the Fan & Limit switch not working. If the fan doesn't come on in the on position then the blower motor could be out or the run capacitor.
If the blower comes on it the ON position then you can run the heat with the fan in the ON position till you can get the heat relay looked at.

I have an older Teledyne Laars EPS Gold Series One pool heater. About a year ago, I had a new Jandy igniter installed. Now, the pilot light goes on and simply burns -- it does not ignite the full burners...


You need to see what what pressure is required to turn the heater on. If you don't have enough flow or pressue, the heater will not ignite. Was it working before?

I know all too well what the issue is. Sometimes it self corrects and sometimes not - then you take apart the top side of your heater and pull the manifold/tubes. There are rubber gaskets that probably dried out over the winter. You can try to just tighten the manifold cast iron headers to the tube flange but, if you have it this far, just install the new gaskets. Teledyne Laars sells them in a pack of 18.

I have a 220v 100 amp circuit breaker that feeds a sub-panel. The sub-panel has 3 circuits: a)60 amp Heater (unit 1 in house) b)60 amp A/C (unit 2 in house) c) 40 amp for pool equipment. The 100 amp...


your a/c uses the blower motor from the heater to distribute air check for loose wire connections that will raise amperage and also make sure you have the right size wire to each unit 40 amp should have 8 awg(copper) wire and 60 shouldbe 6 awg i think if the wire is to small=heat= higher amperage

In AUTO; blower won't come on when i turn heater/AC on.


most likely the heating speed relay on your furnaces IFC board has failed.Unfortunately the entire IFC must be replaced to repair this. you are in need of a professional service tech. The same control handles the blower fan, ignition system and safeties. Not a do-it-yourself repair as wires in the wrong place could cost you a house.

Heater on my fairly new air conditioner


SINCE YOU SAID AC I ASSUME YOU HAVE ELECTRIC HEAT. IF BLOWER IS ON BUT NO HEAT THEN YOUR HEAT STRIPS ARE PROBABNLY NOT BEING TOLD TO COME ON OR THE BREAKER TO THEM IS OFF. SOME TIMES THE BLOWER IS ON A BREAKER AND THE STRIPS ARE ON A SEPERATE. CHECK ALL BREAKERS. THEN IF STILL NO HEAT YOULL HAVE TO CHECK THE POWER TO THE HEAT STRIP RELAYS . SEE IF THEY ARE BEING SENT A 24 VOLT SIGNAL TO RUN AND THEN CHECK TO SEE IF THEY HAVE POWER INTO AND OUT OF THE RELAYS. IF YOU DO THEN AN OVERLOAD OR A FUSEABLE LINK OR THE STRIPS THEMSELVES ARE BAD. EACH 5 KW OF HEAT SHOULD PULL 20 AMPS . IE 15 KW PULLS 60 AMPS 10KW PULLS 40 AMPS ETC.

I have a hot shot pool heater, when i turn it on I have to tap the front of the case for it to come on when it ignites it only stays on a few minutes, What is the problem?


Hi,
I would start by checking out components connected directly to the front panel. Check electrical connections for signs of a poor contact, check operation of the thermostat, and that any blower fan is operational.

The fault should lie in one of those components, as any one would cause this problem.

Thanks for using Fixya! and don't forget to rate,

Heater problem model PHK 080-1


THE BURNING SMELL IS NORMAL. BEFORE HEATING SEASON OPEN ALL DOORS AND TURN THE HEAT UP AND LET RUN TILL ALL DUST IS BURNT OFF. IF BLOWER IS NOT COMMING ON NOW. THERE ARE 2 TIME DELAY RELAYS, AND ANOTHER RELAY FOR "FAN ONLY OPERATION". ALWAYS MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT THE PROBLEM BEFORE REPLACING AN EXPENSIVE MOTOR.
