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
Richard

SOURCE: Raypak 2100 ignites then it turns off or shakes bangs HL1

Check the bypass in the header for damage. HL1 along with the banging/popping is too low of water flow through the heater and the water is getting to hot.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

Along the manifold there will be several gas ports feeding gas into the burner tray tubes. The tubes are the narrow steel tubes that extend under the heater from the gas line. We use a piece of #12 solid wire and run it in and out of the tubes from under the manifold. Spiders like nesting in the tubes and their silk blocks the gas flow. Once the gas migrates over from further away from the pilot you get the 'whoosh' of ignition. As you clean the tubes and recheck the heater be sure you pay attention to the flame color. Anywhere you see orange flames above a tube you need to shut down and then clean the tube. Orange flame means poor combustion and needs to be fixed to prevent sooting.

SOURCE: Can't light my Raypak Pool Heater.

Often you can see the pilot if you use a small mirror. With the button on the gas valve pushed down you should get pilot. Once the pilot is lit it warms the TC(thermocouple) creating the static charge to open the gas valve on it's own. The TC is set in the pilot assembly. It will be a small tube like piece with the wires coming from it. Some times you can pull and replace it but I will usually get the whole pilot assembly and just replace that. It will probally be rusted and can be cloging the tiny orface on the pilot itself.
If you have a milivolt meter you can check the TC by pulling the wires that come from it at the gas valve and with the button on the gas valve pushed in and a good flame you should get 500-700 MV from the TC. This is 1/2 a volt+ so you will need a MV meter. But this will tell if your TC is bad or if your valve is bad.
Good luck.

Hard to be sure, but if the pilot light is lite and the gas is still not being allowed through, then it is most likely to be the thermocouple. The tube that senses the heat of the pilot light, and carries that information back to the valve. In fact, often the thermocouple is just not placed directly in the pilot light flame well enough. If it is well heated, then I would change the thermocouple. Some are electric, and others use pressure. But it is usually not hard to change, and they often go bad.

Here is an image of a typical pressure operated one:

Here is a link that shows electrical ones:

But there are also other possibilities, such as the high temp cut off switch.
You can test that with an ohmmeter, but be careful because you would need to do it hot.
Other possibilities is that if you recently opened the piping, you would need to purge the air out, and if you used galvanized pipe or have any sediment, it can also plug the tiny gas orifice. You can remove, inspect, and clean it. But careful not to **** it out by sticking a wire through it too roughly.
