If your pilot lights up but the main burner doesn't light up then you have a bad pilot sensor or gas valve

My top burners won't light unless i use a match to it .Will work on it own if the ovenis on and stove is hot is there apolit light for the burners somewhere can't hear the clicking of


Hard to answer without info on unit. But if you ordinarily hear clicking when turning on the burners, you have an electronic igniter which may need replacement. If you don't general hear clicking, there should be a pilot light somewhere between the burners. Note if it is the latter, you will likely smell gas and should open your windows to vent the room.

Why i turn on the thermostat, the fire won't light up. why is that?


Assuming the pilot is working normally, when you turn the thermostat up past the current temperature of the oil, you should hear and feel a tiny click in the thermostat. If not, the thermostat is defective. If there is a click, a weak thermopile is occasionally to blame. Sometimes further heating the thermopile with a propane torch will cause the main burners to kick on. If replacing the thermopile does not solve the problem, you have a defective gas valve.

I have an imperial fryer. Pilot is on but main burners don't ignite. Pilot looks normal & thermostat clicks when turned


Number 5 is your thermopile/pilot generator. It is a pilot generator that does 2 things. It holds open the valve with a safety magnet and it operates the safety valve solenoid whenever the control stat calls for heat. Overtime they get weak and will hold the pilot but not operate the valve solenoid. I would replace that pilot generator.thermopile and party on!

I am a new homeowner. I have an H400IDLunit that is a pool/spa combo. The code reads "00" in the heater window and does not change when the unit controlls are pressed. I have an aqualink...


I don't know if there is a pilot light, spark ignitor or thermal ignitor. I would determine by inspection what kind it has. If you open the front cover you will find a gas valve. It can be identified by following the gas pipe that enters the side of the heater and attaches to the gas valve. If the valve has a control knob on it that has an off, on and pilot position then it is a pilot type. If this control is not on the valve then the unit includes an automatic ignitor.

To light a pilot equipped system place the knob in the pilot position, push it down, and use a flame to light the pilot. If you hear gas flowing from the pilot but it won't light then there is air in the line and it needs to be purged. Holding the pilot lighting valve down long enough will purge it but may take a long time. Periodically you can check it by trying to light it. If it lights watch it for a while before trying to turn the heater on to make sure it is fully purged. Once the pilot is stable and the thermocouple is heated the pilot valve can be released and it should stay lit. If not, try again.

Don't get down and look into the burners while you are trying to start the system because it could flame out and burn your face. If you turn on the heater again then the gas valve should come on and the burner should light. You can usually hear a loud snap when the gas valve come on. You should then hear the gas flow to the burner. If the burner doesn't light you should be able to smell the gas. If it lights exhaust will be coming out of the vents in the top of the heater.

I am sure you will have more questions so please respond with them. I hope this helps.

Fryer wont lite when temp knob is turned up to 350 range pilot is lit


Observe the thermostat when set to higher temp, you should hear a clicking sound as the mechanical contacts inside closes, at this point, burners should fire up.
Thermostat can be tested by checking the continuity across its terminals (using an ohm meter) when set to a temperature higher than the oil temperature.
Also, the thermopile must be free of soot or any form of dirt and the pilot must have good flame quality, gas pressure should meet the nameplate's requirement.

Hi i have a new imperial fryer and im tring to light it and cant seem to get it to work. any idea on how to get it working?


Have a lighter handy (I use one of the elongated ones for caravaners)
in-between the burners is a pilot light (top right) keep the lighter flame where the gas comes out.
On the right hand side of the fryer at the bottom is a gas valve with a little black knob.
Press and hold the black knob in and gas will come out of the pilot light and ignite by the lighter flame. You need to hold the button in for quite a while. (until it stays lit)
When it stays lit depress the little black knob and turn it anti clockwise. Gas comes out of the burners and ignites from the pilot light. When it reaches temp. it will cut out.
To turn it off turn the little black knob clockwise. To turn the pilot light off, push and turn clockwise.

Hello,I have a Imperial IFS deep fryer S#06301407 .We had a pinhole repaired in tank.I know that tank was removed prior to repair .Unit did work fine other than leak before tank repair.After lighting pilot...


You can use a jumper wire to test the valve. The voltage is LESS than 1 volt so do not worry. Imperial fryers usually use a robershaw gas valve. the 2 outside terminals...left and right.... are where the thermostat connects. Using a jumper wire after the pilot is lit will tell you if the valve is good or if it's the thermostat. You can also use a multimeter and check the continuity of the thermostat.

Gas water heater: burner doesn't fire, replaced gas control valve


Hello,Don't worry about the rust flakes as every burner collects then and is normal.The new control should click.Please check incoming gas pressure supply 3.5"WC natural gas / 9"WC for LP.Check it at the piolt tube with a pressure dial meter,I assume the water temp now is cold.Did you change the thermocouple also as this provides the power to run the control?

For the GE XL44 model, where would i find the pilot light? the stove is not working


There is not pilot light on the stove top since the burner is activated by a spark generate by high voltage to a small ceramic disk with a wire protruding from it by the burner.
You have the have AC Power to the stove and you should hear a clicking when you slightly turn on the burner. Once the burner is on fire then turn the burner control to the desired temperature. If the burner will not light after 4 seconds of clicking sounds turn the burner control off and make sure the round gas diffuser on top of the burner is correctly seated on the burner. It should lock in place and is removable for daily cleaning of the stove. Now try the burner control again in the light position for no more than four seconds to see if it lights.
Do you smell gas? Do you hear clicking when slightly turning the burner knob? If yes to both the stove is working and the top of the burner is not seated correctly. If no on either or both you may have a stove, electrical or gas problem.
