    Pentair MiniMax Plus 400-tries to fire up

    Have a propane Pentair MiniMax Plus 400K btu heater,11 years old. I replaced the control module, both hi-limit safety switches, and pressure valve in the last six months. When turned on all the lights on the front panel are lit.All connections are clean and tight Inside, on the circuit board with three green lights, two of the three are lit. The pv one is not lit. A clicking sound is present when turned on and the lights blink. I am seeking answers on this one. Thanks.

    Yes, all the leds are green on the front panel and the clicking noise happens, the lights blink.

    No, have not tested the ignitor. There is no sound from the ignitor, like it is trying to fire. When I by-passed the pressure switch, before I replaced it, two months ago, it fired right up. Could it be the circuit board?Not getting the proper info to let the unit fire?

    It's very possible to be the board or it could be the control module. First check you connections on the board and see if maybe any of them are lose.
