Question about Raypak DOOR ASSEMBLY

Raypak Pool Heater

I have a Raypak Pool Heater (using Gas). I was advised by the technician to turn it on once a month after I have him fixed the pilot.

Last week, when I tried to turn it on, it shows [SPK], but no lighting sounds come out. Last time, when it is operational, there is a sound like pilot igniting the burner.

What should I do to fix the problem?

SOURCE: Burners not lighting off pilot

Sorry, no solution, but I have a similar problem, so if you could let me know how things get resolved, I'd greatly appreciate it.

On mine (a 2100 model R405A), this is especially likely to happen during or after wet weather. Not sure if the ignitor is the problem. After power on, I hear the ignotor clicking for a bit and often then I hear an odd sound and then the clicking stops. My LCD is totally gone (a whole separate issue), so I can't tell you what message is there. But, usually after a good period of drying out, the unit fires up ok.

Seems to be getting progressively more prone to this as it ages (installed 2002).

If you have any more info, please let me know @ sroche@tellink.net or here

Thanks,
_Steve

SOURCE: pool heater wont fire up

Its just after 1 am here as well, Ontario Canada. Yes, you have to remove the front lower panel by raising it then pulling out at the bottom. Then compare the valve you have with the 2 in the picture on pg 5. If it is easier, you can have your husband call me while doing this and I can talk him through it. My contact information is located on the main page of my company website www.emshvac.com

Thanks

SOURCE: I have a Raypak pool heater the pilot will lite but the unit will

My Rapak gas pool heater burner will not ignite. I changed the flame sensor and then the main gas valve (on a recommendation of a heating contracter) and after spending almost $300 on parts, I may have not needed, it still will not ignite. The water temp has been around 80 using the solar cover but now with the air temp in the 50's at night and only in the 70's in the day the water is a brisk 70 degrees. We would like run the heater now, so we can use the pool for a bit longer this fall.
Any ideas? Some people told me there is a valve that senses the proper amount of water is flowing around the boiler so it doesn't burn up, is this possiblely the problem that the valve is not opening?

SOURCE: Hi, The pilot won't light

I am thinking it could be the relay. The relay directs the power to the device. In most devices it is the one that makes the 'clicking' sound.

Gas ignitor bypass for raypak heater?


to test the pilot, you can use a torch to keep the sensor hot. if it still won't stay on, you have a bad flame sensor sometimes called either a thermopile or thermocouple. very easy to replace.

I have a Raypac C155A LP spa heater. won't light


I would agree with you. The pilot generator has probably degraded over the years and is only proving enough millivolts to power the pilot but not enough to run the gas valve for your main burners.

Replacing the pilot generator, preferably the entire pilot assembly, will fix the problem.
