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.

assuming you mean you have electric ignition, DO NOT try to lite with a flame of any kind. make sure gas is on, while pushing knob turn to PILOT hold knob down for appr. 10 seconds while still holding knob down,push ignter. you may have to do this proccess afew times. if this doesnt work, call a pro. gas appl. can be extremily dangerous

13 year old pitco frialator fryer pilot wont stay on. changed gas valve and thermopile.... pilot light wont stay lite

Hi there.
Check and tighten all wiring connections.
Check the hi limit for continuity across the terminals using an ohm meter, if it has no continuity, you have to replace the hi limit.

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.

I have an old dearborn drc40fm gas heater that the knob is gone and so I don't have writing to tell me where "pilot" and "on" are. It says to depress and turn to pilot and then light...

off, pilot then on. moving cockwise, push and depress in pilot to lite, hold long enough to warm up therm-couple safety switch to allow gas to stay on to pilot then turn to on to let gas go to burners. highly suggest a new vavle as it a safety issue to operate in this manner, but its cold and this will get you by for now, good luck

Igniter on my electrnic gas hot water heater does not work but tests good .so what can the problem be

Not enough information but I will try and guess. Assuming that you have a pilot. Set the thermostat to vacation mode. turn the gas valve knob to pilot and push down and then click the pizzo button several times to lite the pilot. You can look through the sight glass at the bottom of the water heater to see if the pilot is lite. If it didn't wait a few minutes and try again and look at the pilot and see if you can see a spark. If it did lite and then when you took pressure off of the knob and if went out you could have a bad thermocouple or a bad gas valve.....hope this helped.

We r trying to start our fryers.. we were given them and to assistance to start them.. These are gas and we don't have the model number

On the gas valve there is a knob that has 3 positions...ON/OFF/PILOT. Put the knob in the pilot position and push the knob in and light the pilot while keeping the knob pushed in. After about 30 seconds let go and the pilot should stay on. Then turn the knob to the ON position and set the thermostat.
