I took off the two wires on top of the white thing (forgot the name) and connected them together with a paper clip. I turned on heater. It fired. Hot air came out of the top. Then the two lights came on and it stopped blowing hot air. Air flow. Service. It did same thing it’s been doing all along. Should I buy a meter and do the other tests you suggested above?

What you bypassed was the water pressure switch. it senses when pool pump is activated. if switch is not working then its eiter defective and need replacing( common problem) or there is no water flowing through unit due to a bypass valve in the inlet and outlet water pipes.

Check all valve position and confirm water coming out at the pool jet

I just noticed you last picture, if thats the white thing you where refering to then that is a flame blowback roll out switch. if flame comes back out of burners and touches that( due to lack of maintenance of unit ??)!!! switch is burnt out like a burnt fuse and will need to be replaced.

I think the guy said it was a pressure switch
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I just sent pics to show what I opened up. I also took the panel off the top section of the front and that’s where the pressure switch was along with other things

Great. Why don’t you try calling someone today and getting them out here?

I’m renting this house. These people are going to say they only rented the house for the pool. I’m going to have to give them money back. Money I don’t have. I’m desperate. Please help me
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I’m not the average bear. I can build a house from the ground up. I drew my electric plan, ran the job, designed my house. I’m currently in production of a life hacks show where I’m featuring this website! Great life hack. How can I say how great this is if you let me down ? Check out my website. I’m the real deal
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
MichellePotterLiving.com. Website under construction but you’ll get the idea. I’m cash poor after my divorce. Plus this isn’t my house. I only manage it and the owner doesn’t have any money. I saved this house from foreclosure. I get two calls. I was thinking of calling you once I got to the house today.

Is that your final answer? You’re going to punt me?

Yesterday I called all her LA trying to get someone out. They all said good luck and sorry.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Which is what I’m now assuming you’re doing to me
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I have a video that shows what the heater is doing and what I’ve done to troubleshoot this problem. If you watch this, I believe you can tell what the problem is. How do I send a video.
