The roll out safety switch has gone bad. This is a wax switch that melts and opens when flame comes out of the box and up the front of the cabinet. What causes this is a sooted heat exchanger, being adjacent to a tall wall (As explained in your book), broken firewall tile. The switch itself is a short black piece in the wire running across the bottom front of the heater. The new one will have a loose black covering and when it gets hot it will shrink and get tight. It will just plug into the wire and is very inexpensive. It's job is to protect the rest of the components in the cabinet.
Depending on the problem it can get rather in depth and is usually something I would recommend you get a professional to look at. Some of it can be complicated some of it is a fire hazard. You can try a new roll out switch first to see if this was a fluke. So you could fix it for $20.00 or you could be throwing $20.00 away. Quite often it's worth a try. Good luck.

What does error code ROL with "service" flashing mean?

ROL is a failure code for Roll Out Fuse. This is the ceramic tear drip shaped piece in the lower left side of the cabinet. There are a few reasons this may have tripped but it is almost never a failed part but rather a symptom of a larger problem. The possibilities in likely order are as follows;
1. Sooted heat exchanger from a lack of adequate fresh air or gas supply.
2. Spider web blocking one of last gas orifaces.
3. Down draft through heater (indoor application could be improper venting).
4. Bad wire or connection between fuse and pc board.

Pool heater will not turn on...displays ...SERVICE AND ROL

As you did not list your model number here, I cant help much.
But I can tell you that when a Raypak heater gives you a ROL code, this means that there has been a flame rollout detected by the one time use rollout switch located usually in the front left portion of the cabinet. The rollout switch is made of ceramic and is about 1 inch across, and looks to be oval. There will be two wires coming out of the ceramic switch.

The part number for this switch is: 005899F

It can be found at any online pool parts store.

Its easy to replace yourself, but once the heater is running again, you will have to watch it closely and figure out what made it trip. Ive never seen one of these trip falsely, which means you probably have another problem with your heater. Things that can make this switch trip would include,

-Failure to service annually.
-Failure to clean and inspect the heat exchanger every 6 months.
-incorrect gas supply or piping
-high winds
-incorrect venting (indoors only)
-water inside the burner tray

I have a Rheem raypack pool and spa heater. I have an error message in the display: "ROL". Can you please describe the issue and possible solutions. Thanks, Stan.

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.

Service code ROL raypak pool heaters p-r-266a-en-c

This 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.

Raypak 2100 digital heater give fault code eol

ILO or ROL. There is no EOL.

ROL is a switch inside the lower left corner of the heater. Press the red button. ILO is a lockout. Power down and power up.
