We are an older pool heater... Teledyne Laars Lite LG, Just

Customer Question

We are an older pool heater... Teledyne Laars Lite LG
JA: Who manufactured the pool?
Customer: Just replace the Temp control board and new thermistor.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes.. me and my husband. I do the research and he does the work. :)
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Basically we turned it on.... it fired up and then kicked out after a few minutes. The thermistat is on full blast. The pool temp says 76F but the thermistor is testing at 86 so probably kicking out the pool heater

Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

It's unlikely that a new thermistor is faulty. It's more likely that you don't have adequate flow through the heater which would indicate a problem with the pressure switch. Here's a link to the manual for your unit

You may have to replace the pressure switch but first try the adjustment procedure on page 14
