    Raypak RP2100 shuts off

    I assume that when the temp began to rise, you were heating a large body of water (pool) and not just the spa? If Heating the spa, you will see a one to two degree per min rise. Here is the Temp sensor Here is the Main Board You now have the part numbers. You don't need to buy from these...

    Raypak RP2100 shuts off

    Yes, you are right about the set temp display and the inlet temp display both always displaying. Check all your ground connections. Especially the pilot, and the pilot bracket. There needs to be good connection between the bracket and the cabinet/frame. Some units had a ground wire connected...

    Heat Exchanger scale removal and probably more

    He either got the needles through a filter cleaning where the elements were lifted out of the tank and the some of the debris went into the "clean water" port. Or the filter itself developed a hole and by-passed the debris. My guess is the latter. If you have a Raypak, watch the second video...

    Spa Command - NO COMM

    Check your warranty. See how long you have. If you got it on line, it may be only 30-90 days and not the normal 1 year through brick and mortar. Electronics, i should say Pentair electronics usually dont resolve them selves. Keep an eagle eye on it and make a decision of weather or not to...

    Sta Rite SR200NA spa heater not working

    Which service light? Service heater? or Service system? Im assuming you have pushed pool on and/or spa on buttons? Maybe touch pad or transformer has failed. Confirm you are getting 28-32 volts out of the xformer. (Yellow wires out of the secondary side of the xformer) Easiest to follow...

    Raypak RP2100 shuts off

    What is not working with the thermostat? The panel should have up and a down arrow buttons. Push either one once, and the display should read what your thermostat is set to. After about 10 seconds, it should revert back to the inlet water temp. One thing that does happen when the touch pad...

    Solar heater installed before filter: how to check and unclog

    You will more than likely not get everything out with a mere "flush". I would just reverse the direction of flow, and run them. It may take some time before they clear completely, if at all. You will be able to tell the cleared areas of the panels as they will feel cool to the touch while...

    Solar heater installed before filter: how to check and unclog

    The only way to clear the panels, and its no guarantee, would be to disconnect them and flop them over so that the water will flow the other way. It will be a lot of work. I would try this before buying all new panels. And as stated above, re-plumb them to be down stream of the filter first.

    New Liner, Need Light Niche Help

    At the risk of sounding like a wise-acre... Call someone else and tell them that YOU took the light out, and is having trouble reinstalling it. That way, they wont think they are finishing someone else's job. Of course you will have to pay for the service call, but it will get resolved. Or...

    Hayward H100ID not staying on

    Your not getting flame rectification. 10 years + you just replaced a RUSTED part? May be time for a new heater.

    No Flow on my Zodiac Aquapure Ei

    I would not try the repair in the video as it would probably just get an extension of time and eventually the error will return. Your cell being 6 years, you got your moneys worth...

    Heater Woes

    Rust is the biggest killer of heaters, Rats and other small animals, and their associated discharges are a close second. If you have either, and depending where it has started, you may be in the market for a replacement. Also note: Even though you dont use the heater often, you are still...

    Pump motor shutoff yesterday

    I would buy a new motor. If the motor is not making any loud growling noises, it may not be the bearings causing the overheating problem.
