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

Replacing the roll out switch is an easy do-it-yourself repair. Fixing the problem causing the roll out of the burner flames in the first place is a bit more of a pro job. Something is causing to much heat to roll out the the combustion chamber into the control area causing the switch to fail. You will continue to burn the link until the underlying problem is fixed.

Error Code ROL is "HEAT ROLL-OUT SAFETY SWITCH OPEN". The heater is equipped with a cutoff device to prevent flame roll-out in the event the heat exchanger becomes blocked. This is either a "manual reset", or "Single-use" type fusible link/thermal fuse, that must be replaced or reset after any over temperature conditions have been fixed. Excessive restriction in the heat exchanger flue passage may cause the switch to disable the heater. I don't know your exact model so I'm just generalizing. If you reset or replace the switch, and it trips/burns out again, then you need to address what is causing it. make sure the heater is cleaned out well and no debris is blocking the flue. I fthis doesn't help you can always try calling Raypak Service department at (805) 278-5300.

ROL code means Rollout.
This heater used a one time use switch in the cabinet on the left hand side.
The switch will look like a ceramic oval disk about 1.5" in diameter. It will have two wires coming from it.
This switch is one time use because it mean your heater is getting a bad burn. This could be happening due to:

1. High wind situation (could be random)
2. Incorrect gas supply
3. Incorrect venting (if indoor)
4. Obstruction on top of the burner tray.

There was a recall on the refractory kit with some of these models, causing the fire walls to crack off and fall on top of the burner tray. Thus causing the flames to rise too high inside the cabinet and therefor trip the rollout switch. The timeline for the recall matches your heaters date.

E-mail me if you need more help.

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

ROL services code


Press the "mode" button until "off" is displayed. Remove the screws on the control panel and tilt the panel out exposing the back of it. On the back of the board is a small square component with a button in the middle of it. Press and hold this button until SETdef is displayed on the lcd screen (about 5-7 seconds). Now push the MODE button on the front until RESfl is displayed. Now, at the same time, press the UP and DOWN buttons until two dashes -- appear on the screen (about 5-7 seconds). Now the fault history has been cleared.

ROL is an error for the Roll Out Safety Switch. This is usually caused by flames coming out from the burners to the front of the unit. NOT GOOD! Make sure you have remedied the problem and replaced the switch. Never bypass a safety switch. I am sure you knew this last section, just wanted to put in a reminder.

roll out fuse is open. for starters you have to replace that safety. then find out what caused the over temp situation. clogged venting or heat exchanger, negative down drafts, inadequate combustion/ventilation air, improper air/gas mixtures

ROl Code is on, and heater won't fire


his indicates the flame roll out safety switch is bad. This part is usually mounted right above the burner tray. It is a white ceramic piece with two wiring terminals and an external part that looks like a resistor. This part detects flame/heat coming out from the burner tray. When replacing it, be sure to check for blockage at the burner tray, heat exchanger and the flue if vented with duct work. This is a critical safety device so do not bypass it.
