Hi,
I have a 400 series raypak heater. I blew a rollout switch a few weeks ago and now have had it happen again.

I read about cleaning the orfices for a possible spider blockage and a coat hanger trick but am confused on where that area would be.

I have a spare switch but would like to give it a cleaning tomorrow before putting a new switch in again.

Thanks
Rich

Was it windy out?

We have seen random rollout switches blow because high wind causes the flame to get pushed back into the cabinet. There’s a special stack you can purchase for high wind situations and even a “powered” flue stack option as well.
