Hello. Two things are possible. If your pilot is ok after lighting, and it goes out only when you additionally turn on the thermostat, most likely your thermopile is internally shorted, and is able to produce enough voltage to actuate the pilot portion of the valve, but opening the main part via the thermostat requires more load than the thermopile can produce, thus it now drops out the entire circuit.
The other is that your pilot is dirty, and is not heating the thermopile to a adequate temperature, to again, be able to handle the load of the entire circuit, as the thermopile is the only thing producing voltage/current for the heating circuit, thus no outlet to plug it into etc.. you could have loose/dirty connections, or low gas pressure, or one of the wires of the circuit is touching the frame, however, those are less likely from the problem you describe, not impossible, but less likely.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

Pilot not stay on


This problem occurs when the pilot generator is not producing enough millivolts. The pilot can be on, but as soon as you turn on the thermostat the electrical load is increased and the safety magnet shuts off. This is usually caused by a weak pilot flame. If you remove the pilot orifice and clean it, that usually works.

How to light the pilot


From looking at this parts list, I see that the gas valve is powered by a thermal generator. The generator holds open the gas valve AND operates the gas valve solenoid. Their are 2 thermostats one of which determines the desired cooking emt and another which is a limit that kills the operation if the oil exceeds 450 f. To light this puppy you move the gas valve selection knob to the PILOT position. Press in on the knob and light the pilot with a match. Keep holding down the knob till the flame stays on without the knob being pressed. Advance the knob to the ON position once you have the pilot lit. Most common problems for this rig: Bad thermal generator/thermopile. Weak thermal generator holds the safety pilot on till heat is called for then shuts down when the solenoid is energized. Bad solenoid operator on gas valve (non replaceable you must buy a new valve) Bad thermostat or limit. Pretty easy fix if you like getting greasy. LOL

At 300F after half hour, pilot and main gas burner was going off. When re-lit would stay on only 5 minutes thereafter. Had the thermopile changed(bought locally- not original from Imperial but identical),...


Hi there.
The thermostat will only shut down burner flame but not pilot flame.
Try tightening all wiring connections.
By using an ohm meter, check the continuity across the hi limit terminals when the pilot goes off, your hi limit may be tripping prematurely causing pilot flame to shut down.
Regards.

Fryer lights off, but won't turn off when the thermostat is turned to the off position


The pilot flame will stay lighted even when the thermostat is off, you have to turn the gas valve knob to off position in order to shut the pilot flame.
But when burner flame remains on after shutting off the thermostat, the thermostat's mechanical contacts are shorted or remained engaged. If this is tha case, you have to replace the thermostat.

I have a 40c+ss pitco fryer.the pilot will go out at random times.Could be 1hr or 24 hrs after it is lit. The gas valve has been change, and the thermalpile has been replaced.


Check if your pilot flame sufficiently heats thermopile during operation and make sure also that it is free of soot or any form of dirt, thermopile generates small amount of electricity to energize pilot and main valve of the gas valve for pilot and main burner operation. This electricity passes through hi limit mechanical contacts. Hi limit on fryers act as safety device which will shut down pilot and burner flame when oil temperature reaches 450F.
If your fryer is set at 350F and over shoots up to 450F (which will trip hi limit and shut down pilot and burner flame), the thermostat is not good, but, if hi limit trips on temperature much lower than 450F, hi limit is bad.

Unit ( model SR142gp serial 0608MA0448 - propane fuel ) operates as designed, but can not cut flame to pilot with the thermostat. must cut the gas control to pilot to the get pilot flame & pilot...


The pilot light should remain "ON" all the time. It is not intended to ever go off, unless you are not going to use the fryer for several months at a time. Then you can just shut off the propane which will shut off the pilot light flame. It does not cost that much to run the pilot light all the time. About one to two dollars a week.

When pilot is lit and white dial is turned to ON, fryer will not ignite when the temp dial is turned from off to 350


Make sure the knob on the gas valve is turned to the ON position after lighting the pilot. If the fryer won't come on.... 1. The pilot flame may be weak causing low millivolts. 2. The thermostat is failing. 3. The pilot flame may be good but the pilot generator may be weak causing low millivolts. As this unit operates on less than 1 (one) volt DC.... you can try to jump the thermostat leads on the gas valve to see if it comes on. If it does... change the thermostat.

Hi actually i have a cifs40 deep gas fryer and recently i change the control thermostat,now when turn the pilot on ,after 15 second the pilot stay on,but when turn the control valve knob to on position...


Hi, from the above question, the problem is not with ht thermostat but with the control board. The control board fails to hold onto power when the device is heated up, that why it goes off automatically..

Take care

Deep shut down


your themostat is either bad or your hi limit is bad if the oil gets too hot the hi limit will shut everything down for safety or if the oil temp is good it is the limit control shutting everything down when if should not first thing to check to see if the in the tank matches up to the knob if so change the hi limit it if not change the thermostat
