You may need to be more detailed in what your asking, for most connections involve couplings! If you could write back with a full model and serial # and the full problem, I would be glad to help.

Why wont the unit light? pilot is working fine

first be sure the valve is in the on position. sounds crazy but I've been there. Next even though the pilot is lit it may not be burning hot enough to make the Thermo pile produce the 750 millivolts the valve needs to operate. If the thermo pile is producing the proper current then the gas valve itself is the culprit. If you are not comfortable with gas and do have the proper testers You should call a pro. The pilot is easy to clean though. turn the gas valve to the off position and remove the pilot. When you remove the gas line to the pilot there is a small oriface inside that looks like a little thimble. Remove it and clean it. the gas flows through a very small hole that clogs very easy. Reassmble it tighten the gas line. Check for leaks with some bubbles and give it a try.

Hi I have a pitco sg14 fryolator. At the time of firing off main burner there is a false ignition at start of heating cycle of oil in tank and there is a woosh sound that shakes front door so basically the...

for the latest design of pitco frialator, the manufacturer added what they called the self-cleaning burner system.during start-up, ignition is delayed so that dust accumulating in the burner face will be removed once the gas build up on burner chamber ignites, it creates a weak explosion like sound.the next time you hear that during start up, the unit is cleaning its own burner, no need to worry.

I have a sg14 fryolater that when main burner ignites there is a backdraft w delayed ignition...basically a little explosion...any ideas..gas valve?

check the thermopile if it is receiving enough heat from the pilot.
if your fryer is a new model one and little explosion happens during the start up, that is the new self cleaning burner feature which cleans burner face during start up.

I have an Imperial fryer model IFS-40 it keeps shutting off . I had someone look at it and they are telling me that i need to change the valve. I ask if he was sure that was the problem he said it could be...

I have worked on several of these fryers and I would say that it is the thermo coupling that is giving you the trouble. but I have seen these valves go out from time to time also.
but I would start with the thermo coupling first.

Pilot light works but gas wont turn on.with temp guage turned up?

Check if you have turned the gas valve knob to "on" position after lighting up the pilot. If so check for the continuity of the thermostat terminals using an ohm meter. If the thermostat is good, try replacing the thermopile, if it does not correct the problem, try replacing the gas valve. Make sure that the unit receives sufficient gas pressure and volume before doing part replacements.

We just installed a new oem thermopile on an older model frialator. We had cleaned the pilot orfice and we're getting a good strong pilot. How long should one hold in the pilot button on this type...

Pilot should hold 30 to 45 seconds after igniting when gas valve knob is released. If there is 500 millivolts across the pilot terminals and still the piolot wont hold, you have to replace the gas valve.

My pilot is on and burning but my main burner won't come on. Plenty of gas, is the gas valve bad or should I look for something else?

Hello there:- Before you condame the main gas valve ( the combination valve ) You should check out four things. Firstly after you light the pilot remember to turn the dial to ON on the gas valve. Secondly check the thermostate by passing the terminals . Thirdly check the pilot flame is it strong and blue in colour. fourthly check the thermopile (if you don't have a meter to check it ) or change it and keep the old one in case it is still good. It should comes on if not then you can say the main gas valve is defective. Hope this can help. Good Day and God Bless.

Hi actually i have a cifs40 deep gas fryer and recently i change the control thermostat,now when turn the pilot on ,after 15 second the pilot stay on,but when turn the control valve knob to on position...

Hi, from the above question, the problem is not with ht thermostat but with the control board. The control board fails to hold onto power when the device is heated up, that why it goes off automatically..

Take care

Frilator pilot will light but fryer wont fire up

The thermocouple or thermopile is your culprit. If it is not sending the correct millivolt signal to the main part of the gas valve telling it to open then, the burners will not light. This is the cheapest part to start with. If after changing this out & you have the same problem then, you have a bad gas valve.
