That very same pilot igniter assembly.

There is a flame sensor on the assy and the wire is dual purpose, sending the voltage to ignite fuel, and then sensing the burning flame and sending that reading to system, confirming that its ok to open main fuel supply and ignite main burners.

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: does anyone know if the igniter also works as a

Yes it does. Flame rectification is carried back through the ignitor assembly ground. Be sure all the points of contact are rust free between the ignitor assembly and the chassis.

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: Raypak 2100 265A displays GVO. I know it means Gas

Here is the directions from raypak on this code.

1. Turn off power and disconnect ignition wire and gas valve wires from cpu board.
2. Turn on the power and watch for spark at module.
3. If no spark is observed, turn off power and replace the board.
4. If spark is observed, turn off power and reconnect gas valve and ignition wire.
5. Turn on power and unit should fire.
if unit does not fire and code reappears, turn off power and disconnect gas valve wires from the board and remove MV,PV and ground wires from the gas valve. Clean and reconnect wires.
7.Plug the gas valve back into the board and torn power on. Unit should fire.
8. If the unit fails to fire, Replace the gas valve.

Its not a good code to get. Hope this helps

Plt code comes on display ?


Plt means pilot light failure. the heater has failed to ignite. either the ignition unit needs cleaning or replacement or the pilot light valve where the flame is, has got dirty and needs a service.

recoment you get a heating service engineer to have a look at it.


i hope this was useful.

Where is a flame sensor located on a laars lg millivolt pool heater


first of all millivolt heaters dont have an actual flame sensor. flame rods are located in the electronic ignition models. The only "flame sensor" millivolt units have are the pilot generator or thermal pile. it also works as a safety, no pilot flame = no dc current, heater wont run

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.

Pilot ignights, keeps sparking then goes to lockout


I have the exact same model with the exact same problem. Did you ever figure out what the problem was? I just picked up a new gas valve, but maybe i should check the flame sensor first. In my systems case the electronic ignition fires, which lights the pilot, but it keeps firing even though the pilot light is lit. So I think it could be the flame sensor, how do I remedy that or check it out. I would like to check this out first before dropping in the gas valve, cause they arent cheap and I can still return it before its installed.
