Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

Have a teledyne laars lite LLD pool heater and was told that I needed a new ignition control unit. Replacement called for a digital ignition control unit (#RO317500) to use in replacement for model 05-339011-003 that was originally on my analog heater. Paperwork included did not give info on exactly how to wire it to the unit - there is a IND connection and a diagnostic area on the unit that was not on my original control unit. Anyone out there that knows what to do to connect it correctly? I'm particularly puzzled by how to attach the thermostat start control switch to the ignition unit. I'd appreciate any help possible..!

Your "R" terminal is basically your "hot" and your "C" terminal is basically your "neutral" to simplify explanation. The Furnace supplies the "R" power to the thermostat and then depending on what wire the thermostat sends the power back on determines what the system does. The thermostat terminals are as follows "G" is fan, "W" or "aux" is elect heat, "Y" tells the outdoor unit to run, "O" or "B" tells the outdoor unit whether it is heating or cooling, and "E" is emergency heat. "G" should connect from the t-stat directly to the furnace and go no further. "W" or "aux" AND "E" should both connect to your "W" or "W1" terminal in the furnace, there should also be a "W" connection to the heat pump ( this allows the H/P to turn on the elect heat when the unit defrosts) "Y" and "O" or "B" may or may not connect to a terminal in the furnace, usually they just pass through the furnace from the t-stat to the H/P and get wire nutted in the furnace. Now, here is the key. As I mentioned previously "O" or "B", a system will only use one or the other. The entire industry (except for Rheem and Ruud) uses the "O" terminial which has 24v on it when you are cooling and no power when you are heating. Rheem and Ruud use the "B" terminal which is just backwards, 24v in heating and no power in cooling. This is all for a heat pump, If you do not have a heat pump, then disregard the references to "O", "B", "E", and "aux". You will have R-power on red wire, W-heat signal to furnace, G-fan signal to furnace, and "Y" cool signal to outdoor unit.

I called out an electrician and he wired it for me. Even told me they sold me one not designed for my model, but he retrofited it and it works fine. Been about a year now.

Wire nut or tape the black off. The red is normally 24volt supply power to the t-stat. Blue may or may not be the common. Have a voltmeter?

SOURCE: Laars Teledyne Pool heater flames on for 2 seconds, shuts off

You have no flame rectification.....LLD series heaters check for a signal through the flame to ground; if the module does not detect this signal, it go through two more trials for ignition and then lock out the module. There should be a flame rod and it may need cleaning. I use steel wool.

My new Laars JVS 225 boiler make a whining noise when heating up. It does it on all zones. This was a replacement for a Teledyne Larrs that had a leak but ran quiet. IPressure is 15 lbs and temp is 155...


My new Laars NeoTherm boiler (NTH150) was making a whining noise soon after install. The noise was audible through most of the home. Replacing the air/gas blower solved the problem. Correct sizing of pumps is also important to reduce (water-flow related) noise. Having done all that my Laars boiler still isn't particularly quiet in its start-up and (modulating) operation. It should NOT be located below or next to a bedroom.

I have an older Teledyne Laars EPS Gold Series One pool heater. About a year ago, I had a new Jandy igniter installed. Now, the pilot light goes on and simply burns -- it does not ignite the full burners...


You need to see what what pressure is required to turn the heater on. If you don't have enough flow or pressue, the heater will not ignite. Was it working before?

I know all too well what the issue is. Sometimes it self corrects and sometimes not - then you take apart the top side of your heater and pull the manifold/tubes. There are rubber gaskets that probably dried out over the winter. You can try to just tighten the manifold cast iron headers to the tube flange but, if you have it this far, just install the new gaskets. Teledyne Laars sells them in a pack of 18.

Forced air heater lites but blower run a few minutes and shuts down. Service board blinks seven times. don't have manual


Watch The Unit's Ignition Process See If The Unit Is Getting Fire Most Likely It Needs A New Thermostat. The Thermostat If Bad Will Cause The Unit To Turn On Ignite But Will Not Detect The Heat From The Flame And Then Shut Off The Gas To Protect The Home From Carbon Dioxide.
If The Unit Fails To Light At All Check The Igniter.
I Hope This Helps,
Sincerely,

I have converted by Teledyne Laars pool heater model EC 125 to LP gas, the system will not turn on, wondering if I need to change the ignitor system


did you also change out the oriface to the pilot assembly. you have to do that, also do you have a manometer (preferably digital) to check the gas pressure on theinlet and outlet of the gas valve? do this and set it up to the manfacture's recommendations and you should be good to go. Thanks for using Fixya and Merry Christmas!!

Laars Lite 2 pool heater will not fire. Pilot is on and I replaced the pressure switch. Had a similar problem at the start of the season but left on for a few hours it finally kicked in.Water pressure in...


I believe that the Laars Lite 2 heaters are a millivolt system . There is a thermopile in the pilot assembly that produces about 500 millivolts DC. This is the power that the gas valve uses to turn on. These pool heaters are notorious for getting resistive connections that restrict the flow of electricity through the circuit. A connection that looses 1/4 volt is no big deal with 110v but in a millivolt system that is half of your power. Start by checking the output of the thermopile then go through the entire circuit and clean every connection with sandpaper. usually this will fix it but if not then you will need to isolate each individual component to find out what is not passing power.
Good Luck,

Pushing the pin you see back down opens the safety baffle and turns your smartshield heater into any old heater (that is, no smartshield). If you want, find a way to hold that pin down (remember it gets hot in there), put it all back together, and get on with your life.
