Question about Sta Rite STA-RITE CONTROL BOARD KIT - 42001-0096S

1 Answer

I have a Sta Rite Heater for our pool, and, the digital read out no longer functions. What do I need to replace? And, is it better to replace with a second hand functioning board or just get a new one? Any idea on price? The heater was installed in 2003.

It could just be the readout that's failed but there's no way of knowing unless you know someone else who has the same unit and you can try their readout.

The 42001-0096S has been replaced 42002-0007S as detailed on the following page where you can also purchase a replacement readout.

Details for Flue Sensor requirements on 42002-0007S are available at the following link.

These are probably the cheapest you'll find as most places are quoting $330 for the PCB.

In the long run it's probably worth just replacing both parts with new units.

My sta rite will not shut off, it runs all the time, the pool temp is up to 98, i have already replaced the Thermistor. The digital read out on the heater says its on 33 while its actually 98,

I would replace the user interface board. I am assuming you have a Maxithurm heater. The thermister is sending info to the temp comtrol on the user interface. A model would help me to be more accurate.

The heater won't start. The temp reading is 126 F all the time. The thermistor resistance changes with temp change. No diagnostic lights are on. Does it need a control board or is there another test?

Mine is doing the same. StaRite/Pentair tech support says the thermister needs to be replaced. I have one on order and will update on my status when I get the part replaced.

Ref: Sta-Rite Max-E 400. Pool temp is about 75

Your temp sensor has gone bad and will need to be replaced. It's a small tube that slides into the water manifold and you can follow the wires back to the board. Just unplug and set a new one in place.

Sta rite 400na gives error code 05 after about 30 seconds

I am not sure if you have received an answer to the issue, or not, but just in case! An EO5 error code is an open stack flue sensor, or switch, There are two forms of the stack flue sensor, so you will need to know which one you have on the heater.

What this error code means is that the sensor "read" the flue temp to be over 500 degrees. Usually, it is just gone bad and reading the wrong temp.

Temperature reads 125 degrees.

I am not sure if you have solved this issue, or not, but just in case. The problem is the Thermister, or temp sensor. That will need to be replaced since it is reading the water temp at 125.

The Thermister is located on the manifold, left hand side, between the first two bolts. It is pretty easy to change out and this will correct the problem.
