The display shows IF. it must have happened very recently

Customer Question

hi pearl.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: the display shows IF. it must have happened very recently because we have the pool set to 84 degrees, but the pool temperature is 82. i backwashed the pool for 3 minutes, rinsed for 30 seconds and retried. the heater turned on, but wouldn't ignite. it tried about 2 or 3 times, then i decided to put the heater on standby mode and call you!
JA: Sometimes pool issues that that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Pool Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.
Customer: the manual says it will reset in 60 minutes. what does that mean? and what setting should the pool heater be on in order for it to reset?
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: if its easy and doesn't require any parts then yes.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: i don't think so.
