Pentair Sta-Rite Max-E-Therm 400K BTU problem
Hello everyone! It's been a long time since I've posted here, but I have a probem I hope the resident experts can help me with. I have the heater mentioned in the subject line (4 years old). Used it for most of Spring Break, then it quit working yesterday, with the "Service Heater" light coming on. I noticed water leaking out the bottom of it as well. When I check the error code, it has the AFS LED lit up. Not surprising since water is now pouring out of the exhaust port of the blower which is the source of the leak. Staring at the exploed view in themanual, I can only guess that maybe there is an internal leak in the tubing and now the whole combustion chamber pan is ful of water? The blower motor is spinning, but very slowly. I assume it's not designed to push water around in it. Any suggestions where to continue my trubleshooting?
