pool heater quits

I have a TELEDYNE LAARS Lite pool heater.
Just did spring start up - the pilot light works well.
the heater starts - stays on for 2 to 5 minutes - then shuts off . I flick the on/off switch to off then on & the heater starts up again ( the water is only low 50s) & the cycle repeats....
help! thanks ....

Heater needs to be cleaned, its either got trash on top of heat exchanger or heat exchanger is sooted. Take top off heater and clean top of heat exchanger then spray out the coils in heat exchanger. Should solve your problem.
