    Keeping Intelliflo Always Powered

    OK, thank you both. That's what I assumed, that I could just move from the load to line side. And yes, the pump has its own circuit breaker. I will open it up and just make sure I am only changing the pump wiring.

    Keeping Intelliflo Always Powered

    I have a Pentair Intelliflo which is just a little over 5 years old. A recent problem is that it is losing track of the time overnight and not starting up in the morning. It is connected to a Pentair Compool LX-100 power box from 2006 which used to power a single speed pump. When the variable...

    Rats!

    Thanks. The igniter looks okay from what I can tell, but I don't know what a bad one would look like. I'll try to remove it today.

    Rats!

    Thanks, I will try the mothballs as well. Yes, still get three red light flashes after it does not light. I was wondering why it goes out when I light it with a bbq lighter. If I'm not getting 120V to the igniter what should I check next?

    Rats!

    I tried to light the burners with a bbq lighter when I heard the propane come on. It lights for about 5 second then goes out. I repeat this three or four times and then get the ignition lockout. So maybe it's not the igniter. Maybe there is something else wrong.

    Rats!

    So before I could even get poison or traps in to deter the rats which had caused previous damage to my MiniMax NT heater, they made a nest in the heater! :O I chased them out and fixed the damage. Two more chewed through wires and the end of the air hose. When I try the heater now, the blower...

    Pentair MinMax NT not blowing

    I took another look at the heater and if I waited long enough I got an E04 error code. I was looking at the indicator lights again inside to try to get more information when I noticed a severed wire. It had not been obvious earlier because one end was tied up in a bundle of wires with a zip tie...

    Pentair MinMax NT not blowing

    I replaced the capacitor and it didn't help. I'm still concerned why the motor feels so hot even when the pool heater is in a mode where it would not be heating. It's like the motor is somehow drawing power, since that's the only way it could be hot like that. I've turned the heater completely...

    Pentair MinMax NT not blowing

    The motor won't spin up by turning the shaft, though it is very hot. I tried it with and without the capacitor in place because I took it out to order a replacement. The spa does have an automatic control but I don't use it anymore. The actuators stopped working so I turn everything on manually.

    Pentair MinMax NT not blowing

    Yes, the motor spins freely and smoothly. I see the large start capacity attached to the motor housing. You think I should try replacing it?

    Pentair MinMax NT not blowing

    I have a Pentair MinMax NT propane gas heater. It's about 10 years old. I've had to replace sensors before and make some repairs where critters chewed on cables and tubes. It had been working okay. I recently tried to turn it on. Temperature shows 79, which is accurate. Heat set to 98 for the...
