Raypak pool heaters that run but do not supply power may do so because there isn't adequate flow for the heater to function properly. Keeping the water supply at the correct level can help prevent this issue from arising.

Excessive condensation is fairly common in Raypak pool heaters, but users can confirm if this is a sign of leakage by verifying that the condensation lacks chlorine using a testing kit.

A lack of power and intermittent operation may occur due to a lack of proper water levels or improper connection of the power supply to the unit. Digital Raypak pool heaters may begin to operate exceptionally noisily if users do not keep the straining basket clean. Cleaning the straining basket may also help prevent slow or inefficient heating.
