It's not that hard if you can get the old plug out. This is located benith the water pipes and is a 2" plug. If you have a cast or bronze header (where the water pipes connect) It's simpley a matter of unscrewing with a pipe wrench and the thermal govenor just pulls out and slips in then put the plug back in. If you have a plastic header you unscrew the plug using a square shaft screwdriver or like pry bar, you can also use a large set of waterpump pliers most people won't have these on hand. The problem comes at this point the plastic will have a tendesy to stick to itself, meaning the threads will stick to the header and may stripp off when you unscrew the plug. If this happens you will need to replace the header. If your pool company abaonded the job this may be the case. If not you may want to take the whole header off and replace it from the back this is harder but safer. Good luck with your project.

My raypak p-m602a pool heater Main board had no power, only Used it 5 times. Anyone know what it might be?

If it is new I would call Raypack. The issues to consider that could be causing your problem range very widely from as simple as "no power to unit", to a bad board.

Raypack 2100 pool heater runs for a couple of minutes then loud banging noise. heater shuts off and error code HL appears

That HL is your high limit shutting the heater down. The banging is the sound of water boiling in the heat exchanger because it is moving too slow. This is almost always the result of the bypass or governor (thermostat) not working properly, so too much water is bypassing the heater. It's not too hard of a fix.

How to repair a Raypack pool heater that displays a ROL fault code?

simply replacing the roll out fuse wont solve your problem. those safeties open from an over temp situation or negative pressure down draft. clean out any dirt and debri from venting, inspect the underside of heat exchanger for build up or soot. ensure you have proper combustion/ventilation air openings if heater is in a shed. if heater is outdoors, Raypack is notorious for getting downdrafts back down the draft hood causing burner flames to come outside the burner box

The header on a raypack heaater has been replaced due to rotting on old manifold. New one also leaks in same area. Whats up here? Bad header?

The header could be good while maybe the heat exchanger is warped. If this is the case it is due to abrupt temperature changes or a bad burn.
Might as well get a new heater if this is the case, but make sure to get to the root of the problem first so it does no happen again.

LLD125 pool heater leaking water from inside

My heat exchanger was cracked. I found an old welder who knew how to weld the cracks for $100 vs $900 for a new exchanger,. Also ordered replacement seals for the 2 chambers. I used high temp automotive engine sealant as an additional sealant precaution. Also inspected tubes and cleaned corrosion. Works fine last 3 years. Takes some mechanical skills.

Pool heater

This is an old, but good heater. Power is either stopping thru the safety loop, high limits or pressure switch, or the pilot generator is tiring out and not sending enough power to keep the gas valve open.

A starter would probally be a start capacitor for the blower motor. If you can wiggle wires and get it to start it is more probally a bad wire or a connection. If you clean all the connections check the wires expecally at the point where they go through zip ties and the like. Also check the air sensor connected to the blower housing by a hose and the wires connected to it.
