SOURCE: comercial deep fryer pilot light goes out

This problem could be caused by a few different things. You should check the condition of your pilot and the thermocouple, if the pilot is weak due to being dirty you will not generate the optimum Millivolts to run the fryer, you may need to dissassemble and clean the pilot. The thermocouple needs to be correctly placed in the pilot assembly, if it has dropped down to where it is not in the flame it will not work correctly. You may need a new thermopile as it may not be generating millivolts as needed. Gas pressure can cause this as well, if the pilot goes out then the main burners come on you should check the gas pressure. One more thing to check is the hi-limit thermostat, if this is cutting out early your pilot will go out. Imperial uses a self-resetting limit, after a few minutes your fryer will relight and work until if cuts out again. If your fryer pilot stay on with the thermostat off for long periods of time and does not go out immediately when the burners come on and the pilot is clean, you may need a hi limit. This is a lot of info, I hope it helps.

Hi there!
Normally hi limit sensing bulb is thicker and shorter than that of thermostat.
Try tightening all wire terminal crimps and connection.

Light pilot on Royal deep fryer. Pilot will not stay lit. Second fryer has larger pilot have no trouble keeping it lit. How can I adjust the pilot so that it will stay lit?


there is a small adjustment screw on the gas valve,turn it clockwise to increase pilot,if that does not work the vent cap on the gas regulator on the back of the unit could be stopped up,remove that cap ,clean out or replace unit can operate without it just fine.If you increase the pilot and it still wont stay lit replace the thermocouple

It depends on how much you use it. If you use every day all day them change oil once a week and cleaned at the same time. If used rarley then change oil when food tasted not as good as it shood.

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.

I replaced the thermocoupler still not staying lit.


I understand it that once the main burners go off, after the thermostat is satisfied (water heated) the pilot goes out too at the same time.
Make super sure the top of the t-couple is getting hit directly by the pilot flame. You may need to adjust the t-couples position, or even clean the pilot assemblies oriface. Double checking the connection of the coax cable at the gas valve would be a good idea too. tight but not super tight.
