    Angry Raypak 2100 265A new circuit board

    I have Raypak 2100 265A with digitla controls. The LCD on the old board is failing. It flickers badly then goes out completly. the LCD is soldered to the board. I got a new replacement board. The new board has the ignition build it. I read the instrctions and installed the board with a new thermistor and new pilot assemlbly. The new board is giving me a GVO error. I reinstalled the old board and it still works (badly). I measured the voltages at the gas valve and they are different with the new board but I dont know what to do next. Is it a bad board? What else can I check?

    Thanks for the help

    Where did you get the board from?

    How old is the heater?

    GVO, it thinks the gas valve is open.

    The heater is a 2001. It is a digital heater.
    The board I got from ebay... The new board is RAYPAK part number 601720.
    GVO stands for gas valve open, but the gas valve is not opening. I have read the valve is getting either no signal or the signals are at the wrong time.

    There are 4 wires on the valve. One is ground(Green). I think one terminal gets voltage from the thermopile and then opens the valve. I don't know which one though. I have a digital multimeter to read voltages.

    The bummer is the old board works but so badly I cant use it.

    Thanks

    Is the heater a natural gas or propane unit? Is the ground inside in good shape? I wonder if you got a board for a propane unit and you have natural gas.

    Aren't the boards universal, and you break the tabs off for propane?

    The boards are the same for propane or natural gas. Mine is Gas. At this point I'm pretty sure I got a bad board because the heater is working with old board(I to set the temp when it is cool because once it warms up I cant see the LCD at all).

    Yes the boards are the same but if you have a propane heater, there is a tab you break off of the board. When this is done the board will know and it does act differently.
