I have the above gas pool heater and I'm having some trouble getting it to work properly this spring.
I have electronic ignition. When I started it this spring, I followed the instructions carefully - I put the Mode in Standby, turned on the gas, set the switch to ON and the heater ignited no problem and got the pool up to 81 degrees.
Now, I am having trouble getting it to operate in spa mode. I have a remote switch and I know that the heater has to be in Standby mode to operate. But, I press the Mode button and it does nothing. So I shut everything down and started it again. But this time, the startup procedure doesn't work since I can't get the mode into Standby. The mode is stuck in Pool and it seems to be heating the pool just fine.
Any ideas are appreciated. I called my installer but he is very busy and I have no idea when he will be arriving. I'm hoping I can resolve this before he even shows up.
Also, a couple of newbie questions.
- I assume there is no pilot since I have electronic ignition. Why does my on/off button still have the ability to depress like a manual pilot ignitor? Is there any purpose to depressing the button?
- When I press the temperature buttons, the numbers flash. Any meaning to the flashing?
