Does the blower motor start when you plug it in/turn it on? It may take around 5 seconds if your heater has a HSI(hot surface igniter). If it does you need to check the igniter and the fuel flow. Either way, remove the top of the heater. You will be able to see the fan, igniter, and fuel nozzle. Turn the fan by hand to see if it turns freely. If it does, watch out for the fan and turn the heater on. Look for the igniter to start sparking (spark plug type) or glowing (HSI type). Next, use a flashlight to look for fuel spraying from the nozzle. If fuel isn't spraying, try cleaning the fuel nozzle and check the fuel filter. Watch out for the HSI, if you have one, they are very brittle and easily broken. If you still don't have fuel flow after cleaning the nozzle and the fuel filter, you may have an air pressure problem. Let me know and I will tell you how to check it. Don't forget to rate the answer if it works.

Pool heater wont start but when i turn off the pump and start back again the pool heater comes on for 2 seconds and shuts off AGAIN


Heater must have water before it will fire up. There is a delay relay that may be dozing off. Not a bad thing but should be chk'd by a pool sevice.
