Teledyne Lars Pool Heater on the blink
Posted by Marty on September 01, 1999 at 14:43:39:
My heater works for a few minutes when first switched on, but then stops. It might restart once or twice for a minute or so but then stays off. It was heating like a champ a few weeks ago, but the pool was out of commission for over a year prior to that. The heater has no outside voltage; it runs off the thermocouple. The pilot stays on. The pool pump is holding 9 p.s.i. The water got low two weeks ago while we were away and its possible that the pump had trouble lifting it from that lower level which might cause the boiler to go off on high temp--but if the high-limit switch is open, why would it run at all?
