On that cecilware fryer there is a regulator to the right of the pilot light unsrew the aluminum cap and take off cap then you will see a white plastic screw turn that screw clockwise until it stops this will give the fryer more gas this could be your problem the regulator is silver and inline with the gas pipe comming from the back

I have a small counter top fryer set up for lp gas how do i change to nat

check the supplier for the conversion kit.the kit contains burner orifice, pilot orifice and gas valve spring which are commonly needed for conversion from propane to natural gas or from natural gas to propane.
****natural gas orifice has larger bore than propane, gas valve spring for propane is thicker than for natural gas.

Hi I have got a cecilware deep fat fryer

Sounds like you need a gas regulator in the main line.

Either that or you are using a natural gas fryer on propane which is a no-no if not converted properly.

My Cecilware GF-10 LP deep fryer pilot will light, but won't stay lit after waiting the minute or so. Seems like the thermostat for the pilot is not working properly. Any suggestions?

The pilot sensor - a thermocouple or thermopile is probably the problem. They are fairly cheap and available at most hardware stores because they are also used in water heaters and furnaces. There are ways for a professional to check them but if you are going to change it yourself it is a cheap enough part to go ahead and try. Sometimes access can be a bit of a problem. You usually have to remove one or two of the main burners to get to it easier. Just don't try to light it up again until you have put them back in again.

I have purchase 2 used FMP 40BSS fryers - originally Nat Gas - i want to convert them to LP - what is needed and can i do it myself?

To convert these to LP you must downsize the burner orifices and the pilot orifice. Also you must change the regulator on the gas valve to LP. Easy job.

My pilot light would come on but i had to press it to position. And when i tried to release it to light up, the fire went out.

Sometimes the thermocouple gets so weak that it may require you to hold in on the pilot knob for a couple of minutes after the pilot is lit. If it still goes out then you need to replace the thermocouple or thermopile, which ever you have.
