Have HVAC Questions? Ask an HVAC Expert for Answers
Hi, I'm Brian and my goal is to diligently answer your HVAC/R questions to your complete satisfaction!I have found the manual on your heater and the transformer is a very common one. I did a quick search for the Raypak OEM transformer but didn't find one in the short time I looked. That transformer can be replaced with many different aftermarket transformers as long as you match up the voltage and VA rating and the physical size fits where the existing one is mounted. May I ask what happened to the original transformer?
I see that you have entered and left our chat a couple of times. Chat acts up here occasionally. I am going to switch to QA mode and we will have better luck there.
I wanted a direct replacement because I could find no volt-amp ratings in the transformer, and even if I replaced it with a clearly larger one, I'd have the problem of mounting it. Also the whole heater is wired up so it would be a great nuisance to me to determine if the primary was connected to 120 or 240 volts. Yes, I can do all these things (I am an engineer) but I hoped to avoid a hassle.
I am sorry that I am so busy I can,t just stay glued to this conversation
I also failed to tell you the symptoms: Simply, volts on the primary fail to produce volys at the secondary.
Please let me know if there is anything else you can tell me. I will rate you when you get back to me with a better rating than I'm giving you now. You did for me what the system expects of you, but it was not what I was looking for. You obviously know your business.
Ok, I have researched the part number and that transformer has been obsoleted by Raypak and replaced with P/N 006736F. I cannot determine anywhere what the VA rating of these transformers are so replacing with an aftermarket transformer would be a best guess and I would choose a 50VA transformer based on the wiring diagram and controls installed on the unit.Here is the link to the manual for your unit:http://188.8.131.52/uploads/6000.52AG.pdfHere is a link for that P/N It is the only one I could find: (it does not confirm that this is the obsoleted part)http://www.parts4heating.com/Raypak-005345F-Transformer-p/005345f.htmHere is a link for the replacement obsolete part P/N 006736:http://www.poolsupplyunlimited.com/bestprice/RaypakTransformerIIDElectronicHeaters120V240VKitwithWireHarness006736F/84376Again, an aftermarket transformer with the same voltage options can be found for a lot cheaper (somewhere around $20) and I could help with the wiring if you choose that. Is there any other questions/concerns that I can help you with?
You gave me information in the way Just Ask tells you to. Unfortunately, this was not what I was looking for; I wanted to buy the exact replacement part or find if it were no longer available. If you can't do this, let me know; I'll rate you on the basis of what you thought was the kind of response needed.
