I would like to go on record as saying the Jandy LX heater for us has been a terrible purchase. It has proven to be unreliable, complex to diagnose, and expensive to fix even if purchasing parts and self-performing the repair. In the 9 years we have suffered with this abject piece of junk we have replaced the blower twice, the air flow switch twice, fuses, and the flue. Iíve probably spent almost as much on parts and some labour as the unit originally cost. It is an absolute piece of garbage.
I also understand that service guys are not fond of this unit because itís a pain to diagnose. I look at the threads on here with pool owners having to do voltage tests, jumping switches, scratching their heads, spending time on discussion boards looking for someone with a similar experience and hopefully a solution. Maybe Iím crazy, but it seems like a lot of us Jandy LX heater owners have been spending way too much time hovered over this hunk of junk rather than enjoying our pools.
Too much of my precious downtime has been spent dealing with this boat anchor. Next pool season, Iím shipping this off to the trash heap and going to a more reliable heater from a different manufacturer.
