RAYPAK VERSA PLUS POOL HEATER NOT STARTING WHEN POOL PUMP IS ON.

IF I SHORT THE LINES GOING TO THE FLOW SENSOR THE HEATER STARTS. AFTER 15 MIN.RUNNING I SHUT HEATER OFF AND RECONNECT THE FLOW SENSOR. TURN THE SWITCH BACK ON AND THE HEATER STARTS AND WORKS PROPERLY. THIS IS AN INDOOR POOL AND HEATER INSTALLATION. THE PUMP RUNS AUTO. EVERY 12 HRS FOR 2 HRS. I HAVE TO MANUALLY START HEATER AT EVERY CYCLE. REPLACING THE SWITCH DID NOT HELP.-RAYPAK VERSA PLUS w/ ELECTRONIC IGNITION- PROPANE

SOURCE: pool heater cycles off and on

Sounds like a limit switch, although it might mot be bad. If the filter is cleaned, and you have a good return from the pool jets, then you may have a problem with the flow valve in the heater. I would try to bypass the limit switches and see if that stops it, but it is dangerous. If you feel capable enough to try, only do so if there is a pressure relief valve on the header (does not come with heater, but if it was installed correctly then the installer would have to have put one on).

this usually indicates a high limit condition.you must first ascertain if you have a component failure or a true high tempature condition.your model has 2 limit controls and they are both located in side panel on water in/out header

SOURCE: i have a Raypak Digital Millivolt pool/spa htr which stopped heat

Don, I suspect the error message is the cause of your problems. A flow error is either real (low flow) or not (bad flow switch). Either way, you get the error code displayed. Always take the filter out of the equation first to make sure it's just not a dirty filter causing the issue. A sand filter can be placed in the "bypass" position or a filter cartridge could be removed. Restart the pump and see if the error code goes away. If it does, clogged filter, real flow problem. Clean / replace the filter. If it does not go away, locate the pressure switch, pull off the two leads and jump them together. If the code goes away, false problem, bad switch. Replace it. Rob

Hello my Raypak Versa Heater sounds like its working just fine. I have it on high and it is definetely letting off heat, but my pool temp has only climbed 1/2 a degree in 4-5 hrs. I have a 25ft x 8ft...


When checking functionallity of this heater heres what we need to look at.
Your pool is 6660 gallons with a 55,000 btu pool heater.
Right off the bat I can tell you that this heater is meant for a spa or small pool only.
Depending on where you are located this heater will not even keep up with heating this water in cold temperatures. You should have a 100,000-150,000btu heater installed for this pool.

Since this is what is installed, here it goes.
Make sure there is adequate flow to the heater. All heaters have a recommended flow rate which is more more productive than one that is too fast or too slow. Ideal for this heater is 55-65 gallons per minute, so make sure that the pump is not clogged and flowing freely.

Also, if this is an old heater and hasnt been serviced in quite a while, then the heat exchanger is probably overdue for a cleaning. When the heat exchanger gets dirty, all that heat produced by the burners just gets vented instead of heating the water. a yearly service is highly recommended on these low efficiency heaters.

By the way, you have a 55,000 btu heater that was 81% efficient the day it was installed.
This means that the actually heating btu's is already down to 50000.
the efficiency of these units will go down 2% a year if serviced, and about 3-5% a year if not serviced.

Long story short, the heater is undersized, and probably also needs to be cleaned.

I have a raypak heater when i fire it up the water temp go's up real fast


I assume this is on a swimming pool. It might depend on how it is plumbed in. Quite often, there is a bypass valve allowing the pool water to bypass the heater incase it's being serviced, or a leak etc. You would close inlet and outlet valves to heater and open the bypass. This would isolate the heater. If you have the bypass open while heating, you will reduce (or eliminate) the flow through the heater. This will allow the water in the heater to heat very fast, and lets be glad there's a temp control or your plumbing would melt. These heaters should have full flow through the heater, and you'll see min temp rise per pass.

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

Pool heater will not turn on, elec. power good, switch good, gas on water flow good. Found no burnt out parts. 50,000 btu heater for spa./?


Check the limit switch. It may be stuck open and if it is it stops the unit from running. Also check thermostat setting and make sure it is working. Make sure the flame sensor is working. The system will start sometimes but if the flame sensor doesn't see a flame it shuts down. Good luck...Lee

My raypack pool heater rp 2100 starts to heat and than stops, if you let it set for a few min and do it again the burners kick on than go out after a min or so?


Check your water pressure switch. There could be a clog or it could be defective. I think Id remove it, turn on your filter pump and blow out some water then replace it. You can check the switch with an ohm meter. Remove the leads from the switch. With the pump on, the switch sould read "short". With the pump off, the switch should read "open".

For your heater to work, you must have fuel (gas or what ever) and you must have water pressure (your circulator pump operating).

Raypak pool heater piliot light on heat will not turn on


Make sure that gas control knob is set to ON (counterclockwise). Make sure that ON/OFF switch is ON. Check that temperature setting is high enough to call for heat. Make sure pool pump is running and water is flowing to unit.
If not above there is a diagnostic procedure on page 33 of manual at:
