Customer Question
I have a...

I have a laars Teledyne pool heater/spa heater with duel controls. Lately, the burner lights, but then goes out about a minute later. Lately, the heating was a little spotty, sometimes heated the pool or spa nicely, but sometimes did not run. Now it lights up, heats up a little, then quits. Diagnosis?

Contractor's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Laars lite model LLD
