You might need to bleed the line to get fuel to the heater core. If there is a bubble in the line it will prevent the heater from working. Usually, there is a bleeder valve on the heater unit -- unscrew this and let some of the fuel drain out (into a container) and give it another shot. It should light right up after bleeding the line. If the fuel that you took out of the bleeder valve looks clean, you can then put it back in the fuel tank and it should be fine.
If this is a natural gas heater, there will be no bleeder valve -- you should have it looked at by a professional repair person. Natural gas is very dangerous and should only be repaired by a qualified professional to avoid serious injury or death.

We have a laars lite 2 pool heater , the pilot is lit but the unit will not fire up


With these pool heaters, there are a couple of things that you can try before you call a pro. First, make sure that your gas valve knob is turned to the on position. Secondly, you could have air in your gas line. Cycle the ignition sequence until all air is out of the line. It could also be that your gas valve is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.

Pool heater will not stay lit


check your ignition status. if you have a pilot ,make sure its lit. if you have a glo ignitor, make sure its glowing when you turn on the heater. sometimes it will glow but it might be hot enough to open the gas valve. also be sure to check your gas supply and make sure you are getting fuel to the unit.your heater will not turn on if your pool filter mode is enabled.

Pilot is lit, but burner will not come on. I jumped TH/PP to TH then burner comes on. Pilot generator = 350mV.


More than likely the tempature control is defective, since you effectively bypassed that connection. I found a manual for your unit which shows different types of ignition. I'm not even sure if the millivolt system is covered in this manual. Here's the sight

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.

Millivolt pool heater will not ignite


Most heaters do not require power for the pilot to remain lit. Is there power at he unit? If it worked yesterday and not today has anyone turned it off at the circuit breaker? If you have power turn the gas valve off for 10 minuets and then relight to see if it needed a reset.
