Why does fryer shut down when it hits 200 degrees

The thermostat? If your thermostat works normal, it should switch off the heater when the temperature is reached. Perhaps there is a last security, when it really gets to hot it will trip and you have can't use it till that is repaired. Perhaps you replace the thermostat. Or if a new thermostat is almost as expensive as a new fryer, buy a new fryer.

What is causing my imperial fryer to burn my fries when the thermostat se at 300 this wasb not happening before

Sounds like your thermostat is not calibrated properly. this is a job for a pro. If you don't do this correctly the grease temps can rise above safe levels and cause the high limit to open.

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!

Imperial IFS-40 fryer. Pilot is lit, but buriners won't come on when the temp dial is turned from off to any degree.

Sounds like your thermostat is bad? We could order you one, however in order to get you a price, I need the serial number also. These are very common fryers,our best seller by far and a good fryer too. But, things happen, and the thermostat is the most common part that is replaced after some time....

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.
