Took coleman away for weekend wouldn't work. Very dissapointed, was cold would have loved a hot shower. Had charged battery, when I went to start it. It wouldn't go, light come up as battery low tried it on car charger still no luck. Got home and looked up this site told me to try taking filter off pump and putting a long nail inside to turn pump to make sure it wasn't seized. And guess what every thing works well thank god, water temp was dodgy as well but now all good. Thanks to people that do reply to these sites, it has saved me a lot of money and frustration.

My guess is the ignitor needs replacing (old and has built up too much internal resistance). Even though it still works at times, I would suspect it first, even if it glows during an ignition cycle.

The heater fan runs for about 5 seconds , does not heat and than turns off.


This could be several problems. Check your fuel first. If it is old fuel from last year, get rid of it and fill with fresh. If it has water in the tank, your spraying water to your ignition source. If you have fresh fuel, it could be a fuel filter stopped up or your air pump is not set properly. Also check your ignitor to see if it is working properly. Some have a spark plug and some have a glow type ignitor.

Hi,
The ignitor has gone bad... you will need to find a replacement ignitor and change it..they are not had to change but are very fragile to handle.
That will get you working again...

Laars-lite LD 97-2000 pool heater wont burn


cycling usually begins as the result of poor water flow caised by debris in the pump, dirty filter or low water level. once you have had some cycling the heater burners and ignitor become sooted and this requires pulling the burner tray, de-sooting the burners and pilot and reassembly. unless you are very competent you may want to call a service tech. Pool heater repair is a high laibility endeavor if done improperly. During the certification class our instructor showed us several houses that were burned down from improper heater repair.

All Pro 200t Will not ignite


John- the ignitor does not stay on for the duration of the running time. It only stays on for the first 5 seconds. This is long enough for the flame to ignite and perpetuate itself, assuming the fuel delivery system is up-to-par. The photocell monitors the flame color and if the flame becomes off-color then the photocell tells the control board to shut the unit down. Naturally, too rich or too lean affects flame color.

Now, I'm confused by your description "the heater cycles 3 times". Tell me more.

I'm glad to see that you checked the pump pressure. Have you used soapy water to check for air leaks all the way to the nozzle? A leak in the airline, fuel line, or a crack in the nozzle adapter will cause no fuel delivery, or reduced fuel delivery as well as reduced atomization of the fuel - all of which can cause a lack of combustion. A restricted fuel filter will cause starvation.

Eliminate all possibilities of a fuel delivery problem before you start blaming electronics because there is not much way to test the board or the photocell successfully without DESA's diagnostic tool. Unfortunately, replacement of the componants is cheaper than the tool.

100,000 btu therm controled heater


What did you set the air pump pressure at? This is critical on heaters with Hot Surface Technology. Setting the pump pressure is always the FIRST place to start troubleshooting on these heaters.

Here are some things that can prevent ignition even though there is fuel & glow:
  1. wrong air pump pressure
  2. the nozzle is restricted & distorted not allowing fuel to contact the glowing ignitor
  3. the nozzle is worn. It should produce a cone of fog, not a spray.
  4. there is water in the tank below the fuel.
