Question about Raypak 130,000 BTU Natural Gas Pool H...

1 Answer

Hi. I just bought a house with a pool and Raypak RP2100 heater. The pool company came out and opened the pool and started the heater. It ran for a few days and has quit running completely. the pilot light is lit, but the heater will not fire up when turned on or the thermostat is turned up. Can someone point me to a site or discussion board where I can find some help troubleshooting this? I am a complete newbie to pools and heaters and do not want to pay someone to come out if it is a simple solution I am not aware of. Thanks in advance!

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

What type of filter do you have: Sand, Earth (DE) or a cartridge? The most likely reason it worked and has since quit is your filter has become dirty enough inside that the flow thru the pump and heater are reduced too low...there is a switch in the heater that senses this and turns the heater off to avoid boiling the water. Cleaning or backwashing the filter should fix the problem. If you have a sand filter or a cartridge filter look at the valve and see if there is a recirculate setting. If so, turn off the pump and change the valve to this setting. Turn everything back on...the heater should start to work. This would verify the filter just needs to be cleaned.

If you need help with the filter please add a comment with the filter details.

The new board may have the actuator relays and connectors on the main board. If so plug the wires in. If that is not the solution then you can call the Raypak technical support line and they may be able to direct you. Good luck.
