    Pool heater problem

    I have a Hayward H250 heater - 2 weeks old.
    Its reading ignition failure from today after it stopped working.
    I've tried over and over to reignite - no luck - just IF reading.

    Any ideas on how to restart these units?

    IF means Ignition Failure, according to the manual.

    Two weeks old - that's their problem, not yours! Don't touch anything! Page 39 says to check that the gas valve is on and then a bunch of technical checks. Resist the temptation to grab a screwdriver. Don't give them any excuse to void the warranty.

    When my heater acts up, I've never had to do anything more than kill the electrical at the circuit breaker for ten minutes, then turn it back on. Try that.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    my H250 heater had a fuse for a 110 and a 220 volt system...depending on your system, the right fuse has to be installed......if all is correct that way, get a tech on the phone to walk through the heater was reliable for the first 3 years then the heat exchanger crapped out...I fixed it but Imy first heater lasted 10 years
