The heater literally stinks for some time after it is installed as the fire tile burns in. Every heater we install makes my eyes burn if I get a good whiff of the fumes...Are you certain the utility actually tested the discharge air? My guess would be someone walked up and gave it a sniff and over-reacted to what is a normal odor from a new heater. You can of course double check your flames from below the burner tray. If they are nice bright blue standing 2 - 4 inches tall your heater is operating normally and the smell should subside shortly after it gets some steady use.

Why does my hayward h250fd have and if error code? it is a brand new heater


If the control exceeds the maximum number of ignition retries or recycles the heater will shut down and go into lockout. Automatic reset is 60 minutes.
There are a few reasons that this might be happening. They range from air in the gas line to inadequate gas flow. Start by checking the installation

Heater is new, installed at grade on above ground pool that is 48" deep so pressure switch is 3' below the water line. With pressure switch adjustment turned fully clockwise the heater will run without the...


Adjust the switch fully in the opposite direction. If you are at 1.5 you are at the light end of the adjustment range of that switch, which can be adjusted up to 5psi. Then let it back off until it works reliably. Rarely do you need to adjust a pressure switch on an above ground pool so it should end up about in the middle of the adjustment scale.
