Thread: Hayward H Series Control Panel

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Hayward H Series Control Panel

    I have a hayward h150 natural gas heater. I started my filter this year after the winter and the heater appeared fine. It showed the temp on the display panel. I went to clean out the inside of the heater, as mice had brought some bird seed shells into it. After blowing out the heater with compressed air, the panel read SB and the service light was on. I called Hayward tech support and they said the control panel needed to be replaced. I ordered one and when I went to replace it, I noticed the display was now blank. I tested the power to the display, at it is getting power. I called Hayward back and they told me I need to order a control panel board now. The panel itself was only $60, but the circuit board is $150. I am afraid if I order one, what ever caused the first one to go bad, will just cause the same problem. Any ideas? I have read about others who are having the same issue. I even went as far as to test some of the resistors and the small 1/4 watt resistor label r55, seems to be bad. Thanks!

    I'm guess you have the Hayward FD unit? If so, it's very common for the display board and the control board to go. You have to replace both of them at the same time in order for the repair to complete. R45 is usually the bad resistor. Read through this forum and you will see a thread or two on this. Again, if your unit is the FD model and you called Hayward and they didn't tell you to replace both parts this is proof that they continue to ignore this issue with their units.

    Here is one thread on the great Hayward units.

    So, can that resistor just be replaced?

    I've not heard of anyone replacing it. Plus you have no idea if there isn't some other component that also is bad but no visible.

    I was able to determine that the resistor in R55 was a 1.1 ohm 1/4 watt resistor. I tested all the other resistors on the board and them seemed fine, so I went shopping and found the resistor I needed. I was certain this resistor was bad as it was reading a complete block of voltage on the meter. I soldered in the new resistor and low and behold, the unit works fine. I still replaced the control panel, as that was only a fifty dollar part and the one button was not very responsive. All is working fine. A 30 cent resistor fixed a $150 board. I recommend anyone having the same problem to give it a try.

    Re: Hayward H Series Control Panel

    cheektowagabz, where did you find the control panel for $60? I posted last spring about my hayward 250 natural gas heater and the CE error. I ordered the display board, IDXL2DB1930 for $150 but did not order the other part. We just went without the heater last summer since I was afraid to put the new part in and have it blow. Guess I have to bite the bullet and buy the other part, but haven't seen it for anywhere near $60.
