SOURCE: Heater will not ignite

The igniter should have 120v if it is Hot Surface Igniter (HSI). You may be having a problem with gas pressures. Possible transformer problem also if you changed that with other parts.

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.

The easiest way to troubleshoot any heater, is to call the manufacturer. Their techs will walk you through each possible problem and solution until you find the answer.

SOURCE: gas will not stay ignited

could be dirty heater you have to clean the runners and the smole nozzles that are in the manifold below the gas valve it's like a 9/16 size you pull them off and check make sure they are clear through, sometimes little spiderwebs build up inside them. if it's all clean, then it could be you flame rectifier/ aka: flame sensing rod, that tells the htr that there is fire so it keeps running. Let me know what happened.

Black oil smelling soot coming out of heater. It also makes a squealing type of noise. It is natural gas. Pressure by utility company already checked. It fires up fine and remains on, but doesn't look...


i think you are on the right track. the gas company will verify the pressure going to unit but it sounds like the gas control valve on your heater may need to be adjusted. for that you will need a licensed gas fitter. call your local pool company or the company who installed the heater. directions on how to adjust the valve will be found in your owners manual

If the heater is "acting normal" with no failure codes and you smell gas, then I would bet it's the igniter. The fact that you smell gas indicates the heater does not have a failure in any of the safety circuits and wants to fire. It is just missing an ignition source or the gas you smell is not making it to the proper place to be ignited. Given these two options it is most often the igniter. Replacing the igniter is not difficult but it is a VERY delicate part and experience in handling it is benificial.

I have a maytag gemini gas stove three igniters work but won't light the burners. One igniter won't spark


Replace the "igniter switch assembly". The igniter's are getting a weak spark and since you have one that will not spark at all, this is the usual problem. Here is the assembly to order.




The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Pilot light wont ignite on patio heater


It may be that your cylinder is malfunctioning, cylinder has a leak, or the pilot is clogged. Please see steps below to troubleshoot. Note:Regular maintenance is critical to the successful operation of your patio heater.
  1. Is the cylinder valve closed? If so, open the cylinder valve but not fully.
  2. Check to see if you can light it manually. If the unit lights manually but not with igniter, service or replace igniter switch.
  3. Ensure that there is no air in the gas line. Open the gas line and bleed it (pressing control knob in) for not more than 1 - 2 minutes or until you smell gas.
  4. There may be a blockage in the orifice or pilot tube? Bugs and spiders get into the pilot assembly, venturi tube and burner ports causing the unit to either not light or poor performance.
  5. Is the regulator hose pinched or kinked?
  6. Cleaning the pilot assembly.
  7. If the piezo igniter won't spark to light the pilot, check the wiring to the igniter, It may simply have lost it's ground. Slide the wire off the igniter prong (looks like a thick needle) on the pilot assembly and then push it back on. That usually will reestablish the ground.
If you continue to have problems with the heater, contact Blue Rhino (the manufacturer) Customer Care 800-762-1142.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know.

When I turn on the heater the service heater light turns on after about a minute, it's like the gas never ignites, I think the error code is n 5? Any suggestions


If you are firing, and then going off and getting an E05, your igniter is to blame. It may be glowing but it's getting weak. There is further diagnostic goes further but that is usually the fix.
Sometimes, when a heater has not been used in awhile, the igniter is always to blame. You really need to fire it off weekly to make it reliable.
But, lets say that the igniter has failed completely, then you would need to replace the igniter.
For a better diagnosis, we would need to know some additional information:
1) Is the heater natural gas or propane? 2) Do you smell gas at any time in the 5 minutes the heater is trying to fire? 3) If you listen closely, can you hear the "tick, tick, tick" of the igniter?
If you are able to provide us this additional information, we will be able to provide you with some more detailed ideas on what is going on!
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to help and we really look forward to your feedback!

Smell of gas. no leaks. no smell when just the pilot on. no smell when bricks are lit. just smells between thermastat going on & the ignition of bricks


If possible, ignite on a lower setting then increase rather than igniting on the high setting.
If there is no manual adjustment, I would call a gas engineer to sort out the problem, as you do not want a malfunctioning gas appliance in your home.

I have a Laars Lite 2 400,000 btu pool heater. It


It could be that the Igniter has gone bad. Or it cold be a number of other items, like the gas valve itself. If the heater has a display panel on it, is there an error code showing? If there is, go to your Owner's Manual and find out what the code is for the heater.

If you do not have a manual, you can find one online at the following link:
