Question about Raypak BURNER TRAY ASSEMBLY

Strange flame on versa raypak

My pilot light went out on the pool heater (in the wind, presumably), went to light it and there is a large orange flame, burning something white- like insulation, but not really burning off. Also a liquid is pooling underneath the unit. Seems to be working otherwise. Should I call a technician in?

Part of your fire tile (white like) has fallen into your pilot area and is messing with the gas/air mix. Cleaning it out should clear the pilot and have it return to a nice blue flame. If you can get a look inside the unit from a mirror to be sure the area of tile damage is minimal you should be ok. Of course to be on the same side you may want to call in a heater tech to tear it down and be sure the fire box is still sound.

The fire tile is a simptom of the problem but the water you find in the heater is what causes this problem. The tile get's wet and when you add heat it causes the water to expand and break the tile. So that will get worse.This is also simptom. You may have a problem with your heat exchanger or your venting on the heater. These can be caused by air supply or chemical problems. Good luck.

On the raypak 407A pool heater with an electronic IID Pilot what means does the unit use to confirm the presence of the pilot flame?


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.

I have a natural gas poolheater- Raypak Versa 305. The pilot lights but when I release the button after waiting1 min. the flame goes out. This happens over and over so what should be done?


You, or someone should check the flame sensor. If , as it looks, you have a standing pilot (one that stays on), the flame sensor has to be aware of the pilot or all will go out. Good luck...Lee

It is probably something much more simple than that...Turn it on and stand back until it finally ignites, then look, using a mirror, at the burner tray from below. You will probably find a lot of the tubes, especially those near the pilot area, are not working or are burning bright orange. If that is the case, something, probably spiders, are blocking the gas from getting into the tubes. That will cause the big burst at ignition as the gas builds up for a bit before it finally reaches the pilot area.
