SOURCE: change from natural gas to propane

1.You will need to change the pilot orifice and the burner orifices
2. You may need to change the gas control valve. Some gas control valves are made for natural gas and some are made for LP. They have regulators built-in, that deliver the correct pressure respectively. Natural gas is 3.5 inches of water column, LP is 10 inches of water column.
Some manufacturers sell kits to change the spring in the regulator from Nat to LP
You would need a parts breakdown on the specific model number of your fryer to find the parts you need. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: imperial cif 40 single tank bouble basket deep gas fryer

When the whole unit shuts down including the pilot light the thermocouple is not working properly. The thermocouple is what tells the gas safety valve that the pilot light is lighted. When the thermocouple fails and does not send the milli-volt (mv) signal to the gas safety valve due a failure the gas safety valve turns off the gas supply. (i.e total shut down)
If you have a handyman around you can have him disconnect the thermocouple from the gas valve control and clean the mating area in the gas valve and on the bitter end of the thermocouple. After cleaning then reconnect the thermocouple. This sometimes corrects the problem. FYI you can get a thermocouple at most any large appliance parts supply. (You will need to the know total length) It would be even better to have the old one in hand during the trip to the parts store.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Does the Elite EFS-40 have a built in regulator?


Thanks for the Question! If you are referring to a internal Gas regulator this model comes with a option for Natural Gas or Propane.
So you will need to make sure that you have to correct gas connection for the Fryer. If you look at the Gas valave it will state whether it's NG (natural gas or LP liquified petroleum).
So if a NG valve it must be connected to Natural Gas. and Vise versa.
Installing a NG Fryer to propane will result in a dangerous situation because of the pressure difference.
If you are requesting information for a different type of regulator please let me know and I can give you the information you need.
Thanks for using Fixya.com I hope this answers you question.

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.

I am trying to switch a natural gas deep fryer to propane and cannot fimd the correct part


Hi there.
You can visit http://www.imperialrange.com , you can verify there the correct parts list for the model of your fryer for the conversion from natural to propane and you will be able to search there the nearest authorized parts and service provider in your area.
You will be needing burner orifice for propane, pilot orifice for propane (if available, if not, the whole pilot assembly), Gas valve spring for propane (if available, if not, the whole gas valve for propane).
Regards.

From natural gas to propane


Page 3 shows your conversion kit part numbers provided by PARTSTOWN

The pilot light has to be converted to LP. The burner orifices must be swapped out and the gas valve must be converted. from Nat to LP. Do your swap out and open your air shutters. Light it off and tweak the air as needed then party on!

I have a small counter top fryer set up for lp gas how do i change to nat


check the supplier for the conversion kit.the kit contains burner orifice, pilot orifice and gas valve spring which are commonly needed for conversion from propane to natural gas or from natural gas to propane.
****natural gas orifice has larger bore than propane, gas valve spring for propane is thicker than for natural gas.

Imperial ifs 40: gas comes out of jet and the burners work fine for a moment, then the flame ignites inside the burner and makes a worbling noise every now and then popping. is this low gas...


Check your manual and make sure your burner is configured for the gas that you are using. In most cases, there is an orifice that needs to be changed for using LP, or a screw setting that needs to be changed- most new appliances ship with a "city gas" configuration ( AKA NG - Natural Gas) and need to be configured for LPG (Liquified Propane Gas). The fitting(s) that need to be changed are tagged. This is due to the pressure difference between NG and LPG. Propane (LPG) runs at a higher pressure.
You state that your fryer is LPG. If you are running it on NG ("city gas") you need to consult your manual for converting it to NG. Outside of making sure that you are set up for the right gas, you should not have to make any other adjustments. For safety reasons, gas regulator pressure adjustments are for the most part no longer possible on gas appliances.

Flame not going into heat tubes


Make sure the regulator assembly on the gas valve is for propane. Sounds like the gas pressure is too low and the flames aren't going into the burner tubes. Make sure they didn't install an appliance regulator on the back of the fryer. This is not needed as the fryer has a regulator on the gas valve. You can unscrew the cap on the regulator assembly and turn the plastic screw inside all the way in. DO not turn with alot of force. Easy does it.
