The H400 heater just won't ignite. I've had the repair man out to fix it. He claims that mini spiders have clogged up the ports and it just needed a good cleaning. . . to the tune of $125! It is under warranty for parts only at this stage of it's life.
The first season was great, started every time, the first time.
The second season was a different story, Ignition Failure every time for the first 2 or 3 cycles. The 4th cycle seemed to get it ignited.
This season, it simply won't ignite, no matter how many times you try.
Of course it worked just fine after the service tech left! He suggested I fire the thing up every week to "clear it out" when I do my weekly maintenance. Well, after a week, i give it a try. No go. It will not ignite again. I refuse to pay $125 an hour again. If it is a part that is covered under warranty, it will still cost me $125 to find out.
