You must buy first the appropriate conversion kit for your fryer, you can check and order only with the authorized parts dealer. Conversion kit consists of burner and pilot orifice and gas valve spring and stickers (propane) and installation manual. Propane orifice has smaller bore than natural and gas valve spring is for propane is thicker than natural gas valve spring.
Typically this issue is the receptical. It MUST be tight and hard to push the plug in, or resistance goes up and burn damage or fire can happen. What happens is the wall plug gets some resistance, and heats up, then the spring tension goes away, resistance goes up, and eveything gets worse.
Be aware that most kitchen plugs (single outlet) are TWO circuits, the top plug being one and the bottom plug being another (same plug). So, there will be a 220 style bridged two breaker switch in your fuse panel. There is one tab that needs to be broken on the hot side of the outlet.
Check other plugs in your home, no need to have a fire.
THIS IS FROM BRIKMANN WEBSITE SUPPORTMake sure the tip of the thermocouple is located over the edge of the burner so that it gets hot when the burner is in operation. Also, check all the wiring connections to make sure nothing has come loose. It is also important to use the turkey fryer with the pot that comes with the unit. The pot must sit on the spring loaded temperature switch in order to determine the temperature of the liquid in the pot.
For the pilot you have to hold the red button down for about a minute or two while it is lit, then turning it to on. If you tried this and it still wont stay lit then you can try replacing the thermocouple. For the relay the best way to tell is take voltage reading to see if the coil is getting voltage across it.relays are usually inexpensive,and easy to install.Just be sure to turn the power off befor touching the wires,and mark them so you know which wire goes to what terminal.
Some fryers have safety switches on the heating element, this is so they can not be turned on when not properly installed into the unit. Check to see if there are grooves or slots on the side of the fryer which correspond to grooves or slots on heating element. Then slide the heating element into the slots on the fryer. Safety switch in most cases can not be seen and can not be disengaged by hand. The heating element must be installed properly in order to work. It may be illustrated clearly in the owners manual. Do not try this with out oil in the Fryer!!
before replacing any parts,clean out the pilot,burner orfices and burners.if this doesnt solve your problem replace the thermopile.call 18884hobart and get the parts dept.tell them you need a thermopile for the model of your fryer.95% of the time the t-pile goes bad.theres also the hilimit in the unit that kills the gas if the fryer gets too hot but i dont think thats the problem.also check all wiring connections to the gas valve (clean and free of grease).drain the oil in the tank and youll see 2 bulbs ones the thermostat bulb the others the hilimit bulb.make sure their secured to the bracket.
