Pilot light wont stay lighted


Hi there.
Try cleaning the thermopile (cylindrical piece of metal behind the pilot) wwith a non-metal scrubbing pad. thermopile needs the heat of pilot flame to keep the pilot flame lighted as well as burners during operation.
Kindly check also if the gas has sufficient pressure.
Regards.

Fryer wont stay lit, only two burners will lite, and will only stay lit for about 5 min. will then go out and must start over


Check the gas pressure, it must meet the standard gas pressure written on the nameplate. Check also the quality of pilot flame, poor pilot flame quality will not properly heat up the thermopile which in turn will result in poor fryer operation.

The pilot wont stay lit


Check if the thermopile receives enough heat from the pilot flame, if it does you need to replace it.Try cleaning the thermopile before replacing.

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.

Pilot light keeps going out! Will not stay Lit.


Check if the the gas pressure is sufficient (as stated on unit's nameplate). Check if the hi limit device is good. Check also if the thermopile (cylindrical metal with two wires standing behind the pilot hood) is receiving enough heat from the pilot flame. The voltage generated by thermopile should be 500millivolts in order to open pilot and main valve. If there is 500millivolt on gas valve thermopile and the pilot flame does not stay lit, you have to replace the gas valve. If the thermopile is glowing red and the voltage generated does not reach 500 millivots, you have to replace the thermopile.

My pilot light will not stay lit. I have replaced the thermocouple and still will not stay lit. Can the valve be bad?


Make sure the thermocouple is deeper into the flame of the pilot light. It needs to reach a high enough temperature to produce a high enough voltage to keep the pilot light lit all the time. I do not think that the main gas valve is bad at all.

Light pilot on Royal deep fryer. Pilot will not stay lit. Second fryer has larger pilot have no trouble keeping it lit. How can I adjust the pilot so that it will stay lit?


there is a small adjustment screw on the gas valve,turn it clockwise to increase pilot,if that does not work the vent cap on the gas regulator on the back of the unit could be stopped up,remove that cap ,clean out or replace unit can operate without it just fine.If you increase the pilot and it still wont stay lit replace the thermocouple

Pilot wont stay lit. Ive replaced the thermopile and still nothing.


if you have replaced the thermo and your still getting exactly the saame problem, the issue lies in your gas valve electrics,
depending on the exact model you may be able to just replace the pilot coil

Pilot light will not stay lit


use a torch to simulate pilot flame and read milivolt. if ok then make sure pilot flame is fully contacting thermopile. also make sure thermopile wiring connections are clean and secure.

Cant get the main flame on


Check the vent hole (plastic plug, not the screw) on the regulator between your gas line & the back of the fryer. If it is plugged, it wont fire & the pilot will go out when t-stat makes.
