Hi there. Probably your best bet would be to prop the rear legs up a little, to tilt it forward, and use a garden hose, and flush everything into a bucket in front of the drain. You may need warm water, to loosen the debris, or you could fill it with water, hook up the gas, and boil it, does a fine job of cleaning.

Hope that helps, and thank you.

On my ifs40 imperial fryer the pilot knob just spins around and wont send gas up to pilot orifice when i push it in


There is a little tab on the knob that is broken. Replace the knob and the fryer will work. One center screw holds the knob on the valve.

I HAVE IMPERIAL BURNER NOT ON


If this is a gas powered fryer, change the thermocouple. They wear out after a few years.

Deep fryer catching on fire


From the video it appears many things could be wrong. The baffles and burner tubes could be clogged, the burner itself can be clogged, the flue is blocked, or this unit is using the wrong type of gas, ie: propane on a natural gas fryer.
Recommended steps for troubleshooting.
1. Verify proper gas type. Natural or Propane.
2. Check Burners, tubes, and baffles, clean all soot and debris from them.
3. Check for and remove any obstructions from the flue.

Hi i have a new imperial fryer and im tring to light it and cant seem to get it to work. any idea on how to get it working?


Have a lighter handy (I use one of the elongated ones for caravaners)
in-between the burners is a pilot light (top right) keep the lighter flame where the gas comes out.
On the right hand side of the fryer at the bottom is a gas valve with a little black knob.
Press and hold the black knob in and gas will come out of the pilot light and ignite by the lighter flame. You need to hold the button in for quite a while. (until it stays lit)
When it stays lit depress the little black knob and turn it anti clockwise. Gas comes out of the burners and ignites from the pilot light. When it reaches temp. it will cut out.
To turn it off turn the little black knob clockwise. To turn the pilot light off, push and turn clockwise.

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.
