They have good listings on their web site.
That link should be to your model. When you click on the link for your manual (installation instructions)l, if it doesn't download. Right click on the link, and select download
So what is the problem?

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.
