You could try resetting this as it could be caused by several factors (blown heat exchanger being one as Karl mentioned).
Hve you tried resetting from in Service Mode ?

To get to Servce mode you need to go ino User Setup Mode first (turn off the boiler via the panel switch - then hold the Lock/Reset button whilst turning back on). Once in User Setup Mode if you rotate the thermostats all the way clockwise (it should display the software version) Then press and hold the Lock/Reset button for 3 seconds.
This should put you into service mode and it is now possible to change/reset some of the control parameters.
If you try resetting the error.

This issue may be caused if the Flue or water stat is tripped (in which case reset the stat). If th Fan resistor remains open in the circuit then you will need tsomeone out to investigate as that may cause the GAS error too.

COuldalso be the Valve coils are faulty in wich case they need replacing (agians I would get an engineer outto confirm and do that).

I'm suyou probably tried all this but just in case...

If the roblem is solved can you advise what fixed it ?

Sounds like you have 2 seperate problems here. The fault code GAS means that the boiler has failed to ignite. There could be various reasons for this so you really need to have it tested. Sometimes a leaking heat exchanger will cause this fault code to come up as well. A quick test to see if the heat exchanger is leaking internally is to remove the condense pipe under the heat exchanger when the pool pump is running but the boiler off. If there is water running out of it, then it is probably leaking.

The fault code gas does not have anything to do with a gas leak or a smell of gas. If there is a smell of gas, then do not use the heater untill it is checked by a Corgi registered engineer. If your boiler has a serial number which starts with 06 or 07 then you should contact Certikin as there is a recall on the gas isolation **** which could be the reason for the smell of gas. Alternatively you can contact ourselves at Kaltech as we are carrying out the recall.

Water sw open

This shows insufficient water flow through heater, does the water flow look normal at pool or in pump lid? If so it is probably a clog or faulty pressure switch. If not the problem is not the heater.

Pool heater won't heat water

How big a pool? You normally will not notice a temperature rise immediately. On average, swimming pools will see a one degree rise in temperature every 45 - 90 minutes.

Heater Wont light

If it has been off for a while you probally just have to bleed the gas line out. Shut off the gas valve at the heater and then open the union at the heater. Turn the gas back on till you can smell gas. Shut it down and close the union then turn the gas back on and try it again.

I have a versa gas heater for my above ground swimming pool. This year the pilot will not light. It gets hot but will not ignite. Any ideas what could be wrong?

I have often found spiders or other **** nesting in the pilot tubes of these boilers which blocks the flow of gas. You will either need to have it professionally serviced or you can attempt to do it yourself, which I do not recommend.
