Pentair Minimax NT not lighting

zofitnessAugust 5, 2012

Help! Been working on this for days and read 100's of posts yet none help me. I have a natural gas unit and for some reason the heater attempts to come on not only in spa mode but also when the filter comes one. It doesn't actually fire up with either. It cycles though 3 times then locks out. The igniter turns orange for 40 seconds but appears to turn of just as the gas comes on. Seems like if the igniter would stay on for a few more seconds it would light. Even if I get it to light that leaves me with the problem of it turning on when the just the pump is suppose to be on... Any help with this would be greatly appreciated...
