    Heater Problems: Jandy Lite 2 FL 3 Error Code - Means its detecting a flame when it should not be. There is no flame. Is it the board or the sensor

    I am shutting the pool down for the winter, but I know I will come back to this post in the early spring. Here is what I think I should do. I should pull the board, clean it really good, check for any bad welds etc, resolder as necessary, then re-install. A hornet or spider or somethign could...

    Thanks Chris, no there is no flame, I have my face next to the burners working on it, good thought though. "the vaccume doesn't work honey," "did you plug it in?" "doh" :) thanks..

    I disconnected the green and black wire, and tested from the green wire to the black same results. I then disconnected the 6 wire plug and tested those flame s points directly, the micro-amps were all over from 3 to 15. As far as repairs go, the only one I know of is the first year we owned it...

    Heater Problems: Jandy Lite 2 FL 3 Error Code - Means its detecting a flame when it should not be. There is no flame. Is it the board or the sensor

    Thanks for the continued help, response in red. Are you measuring 2.4 milliamps or 2.4 micro-amps? I should have said micro amps. I used the micro-amp setting and got 2.4 There should not be any voltage or current measured. If there is, it might be due to a stray current from somewhere or...

    Heater Problems: Jandy Lite 2 FL 3 Error Code - Means its detecting a flame when it should not be. There is no flame. Is it the board or the sensor

    Hey thanks for the help!!! I edited my original post, reposting here. I tested it by disconnecting the black wire from the board and running the multimeter in series with the sensor. It is a Tru RMS. It measured 9.0mV and 2.4mA which would indicate the system thinks there is a flame there. Is...

    EDITED, tested it by disconnecting the black wire from the board and running the multimeter in series with the sensor. It is a Tru RMS. It measured 9.0mV and 2.4mA which would indicate the system thinks there is a flame there. Is this the board or is this the sensor? I could not find the FC-...

    Thanks James, I will check this this weekend most likely. Do I check those test points with the board installed or with it removed? BTW if the board is bad, is it repairable? I have seen new ones on EBAY for $300+

    Hi, I have the Jandy Lite 2 Heater. Display is working, it says the pump is running which is correct so its detecting flow. It also knows the temperature of the water. When I switch it to on it does not turn on. Eventually I get a service error code FL3. Which means: flame detected when no...

    Anything damaging or wasteful about slowly pouring CYA granules into the skimmer to have it sucked into the top of the sand filter to dissolve there?

    No, not sure, I think it could be a leak, but maybe not. Good point. BTW curious, how would it clog a pipe if it dissolves, the stuff I get is very hard in the water bucket even after a few weeks

    Anything damaging or wasteful about slowly pouring CYA granules into the skimmer to have it sucked into the top of the sand filter to dissolve there?

    Thanks both of you. Yes, I use liquid chlorine, as I have a liner pool, trychlor tabs in a floater will damage my liner. I intend to slowly release it in very small quantities. I am only losing about an inch or two a week, so i can calculate the loss and replace slowly.

    Anything damaging or wasteful about slowly pouring CYA granules into the skimmer to have it sucked into the top of the sand filter to dissolve there?

    That is the question. The sock method is kind of a pain for me as I believe I have a small leak in the lines somewhere, so I have to add CYA more often than I would like. If I could just get it into the sand filter would it not dissolve there? My thoughts are to pour it in slowly into the...

    Paper gaskets for skimmers, really??

    worst case if it leaks, shock the pool, drain it below the skimmer 2 inches, caulk it up, let it dry for 24-48 hours, reopen the pool. Repeat next year if necessary.
