Question about Lite On Laars Lite 2 Heaters: 250,000BTU MV Heater

4 Answers

Laars Lite 2 Works but seems to be boiling in the heater!

My heater lites but seems to be boiling within a couple of minutes. The water flow through the heater seems okay and the filter system on the pool is working well with a good flow. Any idea why the water would be boiling in the heater?

Is it by chance a heated pool?

Posted on Aug 31, 2008

  • Ronnie Houston Aug 31, 2008

    if its a heated pool the water will boil until it reaches a certain temp and then the thermostat will tell it the water is at the appropriate temp and should stop the boiling.

Main burner will not lite


There can be a number of things that can cause this symptom. There are several sensors that detect whether there is enough water flowing through the heater, whether the water temperature is higher than the setting or whether there is some internal problem in the heater, etc. I recommend you call the Laars technical support line and they may be able to help you determine the path to correct the issue. I hope this helps.

The heater (Larrs lite 2) will not lights


Be sure your connections are secure on the heater and the aqualink. Be sure your temp is turned all the way up on the heater. And check to see what the temp is reading on the aqualink. If this is running high a popular problem is the temp sensor in the pipeing has gone bad. Other than that you may have soot build up on or around your pilot. This was a problem on some of the early lite series. Hope this helps.

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.
