Can't light my Raypak Pool Heater.

Can't tell if my Pilot Light is lit. Does the Thermocouple have anything to do with lighting the Pilot Light? How do I replace the Thermocouple?

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.

Pilot light will not ignite water heater


the pilot light serves to purposes. it is the source of ignition for the main burner and is a safety device that detects wether there is a flame or not. if the pilot light stays on when you stop pressing the pilot light button then you need to turn the knob to the on position to light the main burner. the pilot light is not the on position. if the pilot light goes out when you stop pressing the pilot light button then the thermocouple or flame sensor needs replacing. good luck

We had a power outage. now the spk keeps buzzing but furnace wont start. There is flame at the pilot, I can see it. But it won't start the main heater. eventually the PLT message comes on.


The 'thermocouple' might not be working. Is the pilot light staying lit? The therm. sends a millivolt signal to the control insuring a pilot is lit.

Why frequently relight my pilot?


check for water run off from above or sprinklers directed at heater. A high wind stack may be needed due to heater location. Millivolt models have a thermocouple or pilot generator that may be faulty or weak. Loose or rusty connections of the thermocouple to the gas valve or loose coil connection, or short in these wires can shut off a pilot.
