I have a Pentair MiniMax pool heater. it's fairly new (5 years or
under) and been working well, but I just noticed that the temp. reads
"high", which according to the manual means that the pool is above 104
degrees, which the pool is no where close to, I've turned the whole
thing on and off, powered it down and back on, still reads "high". and
because it reads "high" it won't turn any heat on. Any suggestions?
I bet the thermo sensor is bad. I had to replace mine. I think there
is a site on the net that has the resistance at various temperatures.
I know I had mine jumpered out with a resistor that tricked it into
going. Just don't leave it that way.
I was just worried about my bank account boiling dry. A few extra
degrees in the pool can mean a lot of money down the drain. In real
life I don't use the heater very often anyway., My solars do a pretty
good job any time it's warm enough to get in the pool.
