Solid diagnostic light, fan comes on, ignitor works, furnace lights, then goes out after 2-3 seconds---help


Hello, sounds like a dirty flame sensor, this is a metal rod on the oppsite side of the hot surface igniter. All you need to do is remove the flame sensor and clean it with some steel wool and reinstall.

I have an H 300 propane heater showing an HF code, cleaned all gas orifices and replaced the ignitor. Still comes up with the HF code any ideas.


Here is an answer written by Stephen Dorje. I think it should help.
This means the flame sensor/ignitor has failed. You are either not getting spark or the burners are not igniting if you are getting spark, I would recommend replacing the sensor/ignitor. Pretty inexpensive and a fairly easy fix. Here is the owners manual for the unit (not Lo Nox)....

I am getting an ignition lockout code on the digital readout. what would be the cause? it sparks and calls for heat and will fire for about 2 seconds and then the ignition lockout code is displayed as the...


Ignition Lockout on this unit means #1 that it is set up on propane. If you are low on propane, or were low on propane and just refilled, low/no gas pressure could be the issue. If you ran out of propane, thre is now air in the gas line that needs to be fully blead out.
If propane level is not the issue, replace the ignitor.

The ignitor on these units is also the flame rectifier (flame sensor). If the unit is firing up, but the computer thinks that it is not, then it is not sensing a flame. Replacing the flame rectifier/ignitor will fix the problem in this case.

I HAVE PROBLEM WITH HEATER IS SWOING 1F IN THE SCREEN


YOur 1f code is actually a IF code which stands for "ignition failure".
This can be caused by many things, but the most likely is either the ignitor has failed, or the flame sensor has failed.

Make sure the gas manual gas valve is open. Remove from panel so that you can see the ignitor.
Turn off power, then turn back on. After 90 seconds, the ignitor should start to glow red hot. If this is not occuring, then it is likely the ignitor or ignitor wiring.

If the ignitor does glow, then the heater ignites, but still goes off showing the IF code, then it is the flame sensor.

If the ignitor glows, and the heater does not ignite, it is likely the gas valve or ignition control.

As stated above, the ignitor is most likely.

Does anyone know if the igniter also works as a flame sensor on a hayward h200 pool heater its an electronic ignition heater without a pilot light


Yes it does. Flame rectification is carried back through the ignitor assembly ground. Be sure all the points of contact are rust free between the ignitor assembly and the chassis.

Ignition failure code on


Sounding like a flame proving device is failing to sense flame. Try to clean the device with some steel wool. It is located right next to the last burner looks like a thick wire. Take the steel wool and gently rub the carbon that has built up off. Should only take 4 or 5 strokes. Let me know it that did it. Ken
