If the pilot light stays lit then there is no problem with the thermocouple. What you have is a problem with the thermostat or the gas valve operator. try jumping the thermostat wires and see if the gas comes on. If so simply replace the thermostat.

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.

Pilot light on thermostat click main burner doesn;t come on


Don't know if the pilot has been cleaned or the thermopile has been changed. The pilot being lit can be good to keep valve open but not strong if enough to open main burner. If after checking all the above, make sure you have gas flow from the valve, if so replace thermostat.

Pilot will lite,but burners will not lite when you turn the thermo. up


Make sure gas valve is in the ON position after lighting the pilot. Try jumping the thermostat terminals together to see if burner comes on. Three things could cause this problem 1. bad operator on gas valve 2.low millivolts 3. thermostat not functioning

Soot build up


Flame is Orange? If so, propane is "choked", not enough air. Remove burners, clean each burner hole with a same size metal dowel (coat hanger works well) flush out inside of burner with garden hose, hi pressure air through all holes to dry. Replace burners ONLY after also cleaning chambers and chimney (garden hose and long brush). Do not forget to clean pilot light area too.
Most Imperials are pre-set air intake. Check gas pressure if able, 3" NG, 10" LPG. Good Luck

I got problem with my cecilware gas deep fryer fms 40, i was able to turn on the pilot, then i turn it to full on possition, but the fire will go out when i was trying to adjust the thermostat, please...


Make sure the flame is staying on the burner and not lifting away from any sensors in the flame. You may need to adjust the air bands on the burners to get the flame to stay down. Also make sure the vent in the back is free of blockage.

Pilot wont stay lit on my Imperial IFS 40 deep fryer


Hello. It sounds like your wiring is shorting or crossed for sure, or your gas valve has failed, but the pilot lights, and stays on, so good sign. If you hosed the hi-limit or the thermostat, these could short internally, and cause the pilot to drop out. Try this, disconnect the wiring going to the hi-limit ( control with the 3 screws ), and the thermostat, relight the pilot with only the thermopile connected to the gas valve, turn it to on, and see, if it stays, then a wiring problem, or component problem for sure. I see I cannot get a diagram from them, maybe you can call, and have them send you one. Let me know.

Hope that helped, and thank you.

Imperial fryer IFS-40


I had a very simular problem. My fryer would do exactly as you described, but sometimes the pilot light would stay on until the burners tried to re-ignite and then it would go out.
I finally had to call the gas company. They took the pilot light apart and cleaned it. The fryer works perfect now.
Hope this helps!
