    Heater problem (will not ignite)

    Sorry I realized I posted this in the wrong section so I moved it here

    Hello All

    I hope someone can help me with this or offer some suggestions
    I have a Minimax plus 200m pool heater with a VS820C gas valve
    The pilot will light and stay lite but the burner will not fire
    I jumped the TH/PP to the TH and the burner lights
    as soon as I remove the jumper it goes back out.
    So I am assuming the gas valve is still good? Any ideas as to what I should check next?
    I have access to a multi meter if needed

    Thanks

    You could check the pressure switch and see if that's it. How clean is the filter?

    I have a DE filter that was just back washed with new earth added
    the pressure gauge is reading around 10

    My big problem is I have no manual or anything (came with the house) for the heater so its all a guess
    I cant seem to find anything online for my exact heater either

    It says Hercules Products millivolt heater on the outside
    inside says minimax plus millivolt purex pool systems
    model 200 M

    Thanks
    Mine is similar to that except I have no indicator lights or fans
    but I am sure some of the parts are very similar
