Question about Imperial IFS40 Deep Fryer

GAS VALVE TIMING OUT

I HAVE A Imperial IFS40 Deep Fryer THAT I HAVE REPLACED THE
GAS VALVE,T'STAT,AND HI-LIMIT SWITCH IN. MY PROBLEM IS THAT YOU CAN BE COOKING AWAY, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE UNIT SHUTS DOWN (EVEN KILLING THE PILOT LIGHT). WHEN THIS HAPPENS YOU CANT RELITE THE PILOT FOR A FEW MINUTES. THE PARTS REPLACED WERE NEW FACTORY IMPERIAL PARTS. I AM AT A LOSS TO FIGURE THIS PROBLEM OUT.
ANY HELP APPRECIATED.

I had a simular problem. The gas company disassembled the pilot light and cleaned it. The fryer works perfect now.
Hope this helps!

Hi there, it sounds like your thermopile, for the pilot, is failing during use, when this happens, the small DC voltage it generates is less than the gas valve requires to stay open, and shuts off the pilot, which shuts off the main burners. Another thing that could be happening, is the hi limit is opening prematurely, instead of shutting of the pilot at 450 deg. it now is opening at 325, or 225 or 250. Sometimes the sensing bulb gets broken where it pass's through the oil tank causing this symptom. If you temporarily bypassed the hi limit to test this also, and it still goes off, you need a thermopile. If it stays on, check your temp with a reliable thermometer, and see if it reads fairly close to your setting, if so, then you need a hi limit.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

Looking for a thermostat unit for the Imperial IFS-40 serie : 05159306 what's the part number??


If you have a manual thermostat,(inside door, knob) your part is

#1175 OPERATING THERMOSTAT (HERMETICALLY SEALED REED SWITCH)

If you need the Hi-limit t-stat --

#1177 HI-LIMIT SWITCH

If you have digital control, with digital temperature control, the unit uses a probe.

#1094 FRYER CONTROLLER TEMPERATURE PROBE

Good luck, Mike

Make the "tap" is to the thermostat, and not the gas valve. If it is the t-stat, try cycling the knob back and forth, low to high several times. This may free up the contacts in the t-stat. But in general, if tapping "fixes" it, you need a new one.

Good luck - Mike
