Question about Raypak Rp2100 Pool & Spa Heater Lonox 407k Btu Natural Gas Polymer Header Digital Rp407aenc

1 Answer

I had an issue with my gas, and it was shut off over the winter. The gas company came back in the spring to repair the gas valves. Now that I've opened the pool, the heater doesn't appear to be functioning. I turn the heater on, the clicking sound begins, and then the PLT code is displayed on the control panel. My suspicion is that the gas company never opened the line to the pool. Could it be something else?

If the line is very far from the meter and the gas repair person didn't bleed the line to your heater I would suspect you have air in the line that needs bled off where the gas can reach the pilot. It sounds like the auto lighter is responding correctly but times out and shuts down until its siginaled to try again. They usually are more than helpful in making sure all pilot lights are lite in a situation as this. I would think a phone call to them might be the solution. That or bleed it yourself if your comfortable doing so. The line closest to the manifold needs cracked open slightly until you smell gas then tighten it. Allow five minuites for fumes to vent then turn heater on. Just be careful that there is nothing close by that could ignite the gas. You may wan't to check local codes to make sure you are allowed to carry out this operation or if you have to hire a liscensed plummer.

Keep Your Gasoline Power Tool Running for a life time.

When you put up your lawn mower or any power unit for the winter, (or summer "snow blower" ) make sure to drain out the gas,( it is even better to run it out of gas )
the little orfice in the shut off valve or small fitting below the gas tank may gum up and plug up if you don't.

If your unit won't start in the spring then take the line apart at the tank and remove the valve or small fitting in the bottom of your tank and clean the hole out with a pipe cleaner or small wire,
A lot of repair shops charge an arm and a leg when all they do is this very thing about 75% of the time each spring.

Bostitch AB-9048025 What's it made of?

Bostitch calls the AB-9048025 a non-return valve, most compressor companies call then tank check valves. All the check valves I've worked with are brass with a spring loaded, plastic valve to hold the air in the tank when the pump shuts off. Many are interchangeable with a little line re-routing. You can find the AB-9048025 on sites like Also, on that site, you can put "tank check valve" in the parts search box and get a list of valves available and most have pictures of them so you can see what you'd be working with.

Can a wrong gas valve cause a heat exchanger to become deformed?

Hello, I would get another company to come out and check the Furnace. The gas valve starts and stops the flow of gas to the burners and if the gas pressure is not correct, it could be overfiring the burners. So yes they are related. but this is the fault of the service company and if they make mistakes by installing the wrong gas valve then I would look for a differant company.

How do you start the heater for the first time in the spring?I don't know where to begin. The pool pump is on and working.

Make sure all gas is on to the heater and the gas valve inside the heater. Be sure all winterize plugs are in place and tight then make sure all valves are letting flow to the heater. If the heater won't start at this point be sure you have enough gas if it is LP. You need at least 30% in the tanks to get the heater to fire. Then you will have a shut off valve just outside the heater. Shut this off and you will fine a union near this, crack the union open and turn the gas back on for a few seconds till you smell gas then shut off and tighten the union back up. let it sit for 15 or 20 min. to let the gas clear then try again. If it still won't start it may be time for a repairman. I hope this helps, good luck.

Oven keeps switching off


First double-check the gas supply. Look over the gas valves on the back of the oven to make sure gas is able to flow into the oven. If those look OK, call the gas company to see if there has been an interruption in service to the area or to the house.

If the oven grows too warm, the thermostat might malfunction and the thermostat is probably to blame for what you are experiencing.

The thermostat is the part of the oven that tells it when it has reached the desired temperature, shutting off the heating process. If one of the thermostat's components is broken or dirty, this can render the thermostat useless.

Cleaning and replacing the thermostat components is a process best left to professionals because untrained hands can easily break a thermostat that simply needed cleaning. If you suspect this is the issue, contact your local gas company. Sometimes, gas companies offer oven thermostat repair services.

Intruder 1500, 1999, why can't I find the fuel

You dont have any fuel shut off valve because you have fuel injection which uses an electric fuel pump inside the gas tank all you need to do is buy a fuel additive called stabil and add the appropriate amount to the gas and you will have no problem. Make sure you fill your tank all the way up. because if you leave it like half way the upper half gets condensation and moisture . so just fill it up add stabil take out your battery and bring it in the house so it stays warm and dry and you will be good to go in the spring.
