Fryer cut off but pilot stays on

You could have a weak pilot or thermopile. If the thermopile is not heated correctly by the pilot, it cannot generate enough millivolts to open the gas valve. The same is true if the thermopile is faulty. Thermopiles consist of several junctions of which only some may go bad causing low millivolt output. Millivolt output with the thermostat off and pilot lit should be around 600 millivolt, you can check with a DC multimeter set on MV across the two wires coming from the thermopile. Remember, the thermopile has to be heated by the pilot thoroughly before you will get the full millivolt reading and the thermostat must be off. Cleaning the pilot assembly is often helpful, thermopiles are inexpensive and relatively easy to change. Of course, other problems can cause this issue as well, but the above are most common.

45C- Flame and pilot went out during operation, Pilot won't relight.

If your pilot is a manual ignition model, make sure that the thermopile is clean (free of soot), it is the cylindrical piece of metal behind the pilot assembly which is heated by the pilot flame, a very small amount of voltage is generated by it to open pilot and main burner valves of gas valve.

On starting, pilot flame will not stay lit to switch on.

sounds like you need to replace the thermopile, which would make this a milli-volt system

Pilot wont stay lit. Ive replaced the thermopile and still nothing.

if you have replaced the thermo and your still getting exactly the saame problem, the issue lies in your gas valve electrics,
depending on the exact model you may be able to just replace the pilot coil

My deep fryer pilot goes out all of a sudden. Every thing goes well at first, then when it gets going good, it shuts down and the pilot goes out too.

Pitco's are known for this. Locate the high limit. It under your thermostat and has a red reset button that you can push to reset it. Check the wires that come from it and make sure they do not have a broken place in them. If not, you will need a high limit switch for it. What happens is when the high limit gets weak and instead of turning the gas valve off after the oil gets 410 degrees, it cuts it off at a lower temp. As I stated, it's a common problem with Pitco. You can find the part at . They carry parts for most all make and model unit. Good luck.

Hobart deep fryer, light pilot heats to temp then all goes out?

You will need someone who is qualified in commercial gas appliance repair to fix this.
Liabilities would render this out of reach for anyone else.

Frymaster Pilot not lighting

first thing I would check is to make sure the quick disconect on the gas hose is fully connected,and that the cut off valve is tured on.Sometimes the orifice in the pikot assembly can become stopped up.(where you light it by the burner)you can check there by undoing the gas line at the compression nut on the assembly.the hole is really small and you can use a small needle to clear it.

Pilot goes out when fryer reaches set temp. and shuts-off.

try to change the thermal battery the device that the pilot heats.. other wise there is a screw at the botton of the automatic valve.. try to increase the pilot so it can heat more the thermal battery! u dont have enough voltage to activate the solenoid valve so thats why ur pilot goes off
