Question about Raypak 2100 Pool Heater Propane 206000 BTU' (Pilot) ()
SOURCE: strange flame on versa raypak
Part of your fire tile (white like) has fallen into your pilot area and is messing with the gas/air mix. Cleaning it out should clear the pilot and have it return to a nice blue flame. If you can get a look inside the unit from a mirror to be sure the area of tile damage is minimal you should be ok. Of course to be on the same side you may want to call in a heater tech to tear it down and be sure the fire box is still sound.

It is probably something much more simple than that...Turn it on and stand back until it finally ignites, then look, using a mirror, at the burner tray from below. You will probably find a lot of the tubes, especially those near the pilot area, are not working or are burning bright orange. If that is the case, something, probably spiders, are blocking the gas from getting into the tubes. That will cause the big burst at ignition as the gas builds up for a bit before it finally reaches the pilot area.

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. Find the rollout switch and on the back there is a small red button if you push the button in it will reset the switch. The rollout is usually located near the burner section of the heater.I will attach a picture of a rollout switch which shows the small red button.

It sounds like an issue of either incorrect gas valve settings, or a case where the refractory kit has started chipping off on the flame bed.
Heres what you need to find out. Can your service tech tell you what the pressure is before and after the regulator?
On natural gas it should be before the gas valve at 7-14 inches of water colum.
After the gas valve should be 4 inches water colum.
For propane it should be between 12-14 inches water colum before the gas valve and 10.5 inches water colum after the gas valve.
If you tech cannot verify any of this, you need a new tech. This should have been the first thing to be looked at.
Note: The most common cause for flame rollout (which is what you describe) is the refractory kit chipping and cracking . Then peices fall onto the burner tray and cause the high flame condition that you mentioned. If the tech working the job has not checked before and after gas pressures, and cleaned and inspected the burner tray and the heat exchanger. Fire him. These are all the quick easy things that would get you down to the bottom of your current situation. I wish I could go more in depth with troubleshooting, but it is difficult on these forums.
