Vulcan Deep Fryer, burners shut off, remains off!

The problem that I am having with the LG300 Vulcan Deep Fryer involves the burners getting shut off by the thermostat. When the temperature falls however, the burners remains off, even though the pilot remains lit for awhile it eventually shuts off too.

Sounds like your gas valve to me, you need a manometer to test it under gas pressure.

My vulcan lg 300 deep fryer latch won't turn what should I do


Some fryer valves have a safety lock, usually a slide on the handle near the valve body that must be released to open the valve. Check for this first. It's very rare for a fryer valve to stick unless it was forced shut with something partially blocking it. If not, let the fryer cool completely. Dip as much oil out as possible. Then disconnect the gas line and, with help, turn the fryer upside down draining the remaining oil into a suitable container. At this point, you have little to lose. Take a large wrench or piece of pipe to get more leverage and try to force it open and free it up. Do not use so much force that you damage the kettle. If you get it free, check to see that it does not leak before putting oil back in the fryer. If it leaks or fails to come free, replace the valve.

It is advisable to get a qualified technician to clean the burners, pilot, and insure there is proper gas pressure and volume to the unit. Without verified gas pressure and volume, even with clean burners the problem may recur.

How do i calibrate a lg300 gas fryer


I don't know that you can calibrate a thermostat on a deep fryer...Is your thermostat bad? Is the temperature setting off? Is it working at all? You could call Vulcan directly and ask for the parts/warranty dept and they could tell for sure if calibrating is possible or not... If not, and you need a new thermostat, then they can point you in the right direction for a dealer that sells their parts...
If I can help in any other way, call us at 888-542-5959. Thanks, Susan @ Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, OH.... www.restaurantequipmentinc.com

Ensure that the gas pressure being fed to the unit meets the standard as rated on the unit's nameplate.
The thermopile must be free of soot or any form of dirt.
Pilot flame quality must be good and can heat up the thermopile properly.
Wiring connectors must be tight.
