If your lucky its leaking from the drain plug or pressure switch. Take the sides off the heater. If its a simple fix you will now be able to see the leak, and should be able to make the repair yourself. if not it is undoubtedly the heat exchanger. Rheem/Raypak calls it tube bundle. I suggest a repair technician for this as there is internal parts to inspect and look for proper operation.
At least now you will have the knowledge beforehand when the technician comes and says its a 1000.00 repair its not a simple lucky fix he should have caught for a faction of the cost.
From what you described it could be that your drain hose is cracked since it is bending on the inside of the machine when you push it in after draining the water.An other possibility could be a clamp failing or th connector on the drain pump that is cracked.
To solve the problem would be to dissmantel the machine to assess the machine on the in side for any devects.
One other thing to check for is the plug on the end of the drain hose,is it a tight fit because it it could be leaking at the plug.
If you think it is not tight enough use a cable tie to tighten it and see if the leak will stop.
engine burning oil could have worn piston rings.worn valve stem seals or engine oil return holes stopped up.could have faulty pcv valve.make sure pcv getting vacuum remove pcv while engine running should feel vacuum if not pcv faulty or pcv vacuum hose disconnect or broken.check where you park your vechicle if you see oil spots engine has leaking pan gasket,valve cover gaskets could be leaking oil and the front crankshaft seal or rear main seal could be leaking oil.check make sure oil filter hand tight and check oil pan drain plug make sure its tight.
the plug is the lowest part, so any leak above it will end up at the plug, so make sure it has a good gasket at the plug. you may need to get some "brake cleaner" and clean any oil off, and then run the car and determine where the leak is originating from.
before you "blame"the plug are you sure thats where the leak is..cos if you look, you may not be able to see the leak coming from above.....wipe it dry,and the casing around it and then CONFIRM its the plug.if it is then use a FIBRE washer NOT COPPER...just hand tight....
I assume it's a Raypak 206A? When you're talking about motherboard, do you mean item 4-C (P. C. Board/Control IID Units) ? then it's part number 010253F You can download a manual with parts list from www.raypak.com You can also order parts from them as well email them for questions. Are you sure your P.C. board is bad? If so what caused it?
Where is it leaking from? Right at the drain plug, or around the filter, or somewhere else? If it's the drain plug, go to the parts store and ask for a new oil drain plug crush washer - most cars have them, and it's not a bad practice to change them every other oil change. If it's around the filter, either the filter isn't tight enough, or it may be leaking due to the process you used - did you dip your finger in the new oil and rub some onto the gasket at the top of the oil filter? That's a necessary step to ensure the filter seals against its mount. It's also a good idea to clean up the mating surface where the filter seats, so that you can be as sure as possible that you will have the best seal that you can.
