Gas Pool Heater

Posted by beaverlakenewjersey (My Page) on

I have a MiniMax Nt pool heater Model 250. My problem is after successful burner start, in somewhere from 30 to 60 seconds the burner shut off. After about a minute it will reignite and again stay on for under a minute. This will continue forever, also a red service light will come on after it shuts off.

RE: Gas Pool Heater

i'm no pool expert - we are slogging thru a pool remodel. i was told that the behavior you describe is what i would experience if i didn't upgrade my gas line. i had the power company out and the put in a bigger meter. i would also have a plumber check to see if you have some kind of auto shut off feature (here in CA -we have "earthquake valves") if the valve isn't sized right for the draw - i think you could have that kind of experience too. but really i'm no expert
