Hello Keith,

Verify that you have the correct switch. When it senses proper pressure, you should read zero (or nearly so) resistance through the switch. Disconnect 1 wire (either one), and use a multimeter to check the resistance If the pump is working like it should, bypass has not been monkeyed with, then the switch should indicate very little resistance.

If the switch has not closed, when it normally should and you are positive that you have adequate pressure, you can try adjusting the pressure switch until it closes like it needs to.

You should be using a switch that is normally open, and closes to complete the circuit when pressure requirements are met. I suspect that you might have a valve that is normally closed, and opens when pressure is present.

The easiest, and fastest way, to see if the switch is wrong, turn off the pump, and try to light the heater. If it does light (with zero water pressure, quickly turn it off, and start looking for the correct switch. If the heater still doesn't light when pump is off, turn the pump back on, and adjust the switch until it comes on (per manual, of course).

How can we ignite the pilot switch


The directions are on the inside cover of the water heater as well as on the paperwork you received with the unit.
If you have none of these, get the make and model number of the unit and look it up on the internet.
General directions to light a gas appliance:
1.Turn the switch to, "Off"
2.Remove the 2 panels at the base of the unit.
3 Identify the pilot device.
4.Get a long lighter or match on a stick that reaches the pilot.
5.Turn the gas knob to the, "Pilot" position
6.Light the match and put it next to the pilot while pressing down the knob
7. Keep the knob pressed for about 45 seconds after the pilot lights
8. Let go of the knob so it's in the, "up" position
9. Turn the knob to the, "On" position
-the water heater should fire up in under a minute.
10. Put the metal panels back into position.

Under the gas valve is a removable panel. On models of that era there should also be a second panel behind the first. remove both.

the pilot light should be clearly visible.

If no pilot, turn the gas valve to OFF. wait 60 seconds. locate the tubes from the gas valve to the pilot location. turn the valve to pilot, and with a long match or grill lighter lit, place flame at the pilot location and press down on the pilot button beside the main valve.

pilot should light. If not shut off the gas and call a technician. If yes, hold the pilot button for 60 seconds, then slowly release. Pilot should stay lit. If not, shut off gas and replace thermocouple, start relight sequence over. If pilot stays lit, replace inner cover and adjust temp to 120 deg. If heater fires up, replace outer cover. Done.

If heater does not light, replace gas valve or entire unit. Water heaters have a limited life expectancy, and if my recollection is correct your unit is 10yrs past warranty.

How to replace a pilot


Probably no need to replace pilot. Just clean it. If your Raypack (mine is a 2100 but most have the same electronic ignition pilot) lights and runs for about 2-5 minutes an then shuts off, you need to clean the pilot sensor. The pilot sensor tells the unit the Burners are running. If the pilot sensor becomes corroded, carbon, etc. the unit will light but will shut off after a few minutes as it thinks the unit is not operating properly. The unit will try to re light, but fail, and then PLT will show on the main programming screen. To fix the probelm, shut off the unit power. Remove the pilot assembly which is located at the bottom right of the unit. There is one screw holding the pilot assembly in place. Gently remove the pilot assembly. There is a fork like probe sensor (not the one with ignition and gas feed) that needs to be cleaned. Take some rough sand paper and clean it thoroughly. Re insert pilot assembly and fire the unit. If this fails, clean the sensor again. Problem solved!

The "wire" you broke is probably the tube for the pilot assembly. It supplies gas to the pilot which in turn fires the burners thru a gas valve. The other option is you broke the thermocouple which causes the gas valve to open (its a safety feature incorporated to keep gas explosions from happening). You will need to replace the broken part before using this unit--period. It is not worth the danger involved trying to bypass these safety measures. BE SAFE!!!

I have a Model 792864B. Before you attempt to light the pilot light - make sure that any wall control switch or remote control for the fireplace is in the off position. Locate the gas supply line. There should be a gas supply valve to turn on the gas supply. The valve is usually painted a different color than the supply line like blue, green or yellow. Open the valve by pivoting the handle to be parallel to the gas line, usually counter-clockwise. When it is closed it is at a 90 degree angle from the supply line. Locate the pilot light assembly - this is the pilot light. There should also be a red or black ignitor button and a black or green valve control knob with the words "on" "off" and "pilot" on it. It may be located inside a black box, mine is marked heatolator, that has a lift off top. Lift off the top of the box. Push in the valve control knob and turn it until the word "pilot" is in line with the arrow (my arrow is red) or indicator line. While pressing and holding in the valve control knob - it presses in about 1/4", press the red or black ignitor button repeatedly (once per second) until the pilot ignites. Once the pilot is lit, continue to hold the valve knob in for about 30 seconds and then slowly release. The pilot should remain lit. If it remains lit, press in and turn the valve control knob to the "on" position. The on/off wall or remote control switch should now light your fireplace. If the pilot doesn't ignite, turn off gas supply valve, wait about 5 minutes and try it again.
