Re: gold medal 5094 fryer


i've got two gold medal fryers up in canada

yes, carbon does build up and things either won't stay lit, or they only fire partially.

the jets are pin sized holes, and carbon will build up to the point that they won't even fire.

clean the jet noodle heads (copper fixings where flame comes out)

i'll tell you right now though...they are hard to get at in the 5094, a little easier in the 5099

Gas fire wont stay lit

The thermostat probably reached the set temp, but maybe the pilot lite blew out. Or the control needs to be replaced.

Hi there!

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 stays lit but when you turn on temp switch pilot gets very low and burners will not light

has orifice been changed? Is this a used fryer that may have previously operated on LP gas? If so, there will be insufficient volume of gas (Nat) to the burner. Also check supply pressure at unit. Make sure supply line isn't damaged or distorted in that it may restrict flow to fryer.

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

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!
