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.

How do i get the pilot light to remain lit on my new SLG100 Anets deep fryer


Did you hold the pilot light button down long enough? It takes between 20 seconds - 1 minute to properly heat the thermistor before you can turn the switch to "On".

Pilot will not stay lit. Will light and goes out after a few minutes!


Remove the thermocouple and clean the threaded end carefully.
Then screw it back in and try it.
If it continues to extinguish,replace the thermocouple.

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

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.

Pilot wont light.


Firstly make sure the gas knob is exactly in the pilot mode some are finiky and won't light unless in exactly the right postion. Make sure once lit when pushing down on the pilot knob that you hold it down long enough for the thermocouple to sense the pilot. Barring both of those the most likley culprit is the thermocouple itself is faulty and can easily be removed usally with a couple of screws and a small adjustable wrench.
