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

2 Answers

Won't fire S.O.S. Our Laars Lite 2 LG pool heater won't fire up. The pilot is working fine, but when we turn the switch to on and turn up the temperature, nothing happens. We tried to bypass the on off switch and the temperature dial and the pressure switch and nothing happened. We changed the main electrical wires. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

It may also be the high temp switches under the 2" inlet/outlet header. The 150 degree high-limit switch sits horizontal and corrosion happens often there. But be careful removing as if the header is corroded and the switch is also, water will flow out , so be ready to bypass the heater. You will have to replace the header. Try to jumpe that switch out and I'll bet the heater fires up.

It's probably the pilot generator. It can't be bypassed to test becasue it actually generates a few millivolts to open the gas flow to the burner Part #W0036901

My Laars 2 lite pool heater will not ignite, I have the same problem every year for the first ignition. The pilot is lit. I removed the filter to make sure it is not the pressure.


you might need to bleed the line to get fuel to the heater core. If there is a bubble in the line it will prevent the heater from working. Usually, there is a bleeder valve on the heater unit -- unscrew this and let some of the fuel drain out (into a container) and give it another shot. It should light right up after bleeding the line. If the fuel that you took out of the bleeder valve looks clean, you can then put it back in the fuel tank and it should be fine.
If this is a natural gas heater, there will be no bleeder valve -- you should have it looked at by a professional repair person. Natural gas is very dangerous and should only be repaired by a qualified professional to avoid serious injury or death.

If the pilot flame is not strong enough, it will not tell the gas valve to open, or if the gas valve is not getting the signal to open, it won't. Check all wire connections at the thermostat and gas valve. Check ground wires. Clean the pilot light and flame rod.

You can light the pilot with a B.B.Q. lighter.

Nottoohandy. Backwash you filter, make sure it's really clean. If that doesn't work it could be the pressure switch. You can by-pass the switch with a piece of wire to see if it fires up. If it does, it's the switch. There is a picture of the switch in the manual.
