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.

Fryer will heat up at 350 temp setting but actual reading is 375. The problem we are having is that the fryer will heat up fine then when the burner goes of the pilot will also shut off. If however i run...


The thermostat is out of calibration and the hi-limit may be as well. I could give you instructions on calibrating the thermostat but the hi-limit is not adjustable at all. The hi-limit cuts off the burners and pilot in the event that the unit gets close to the flash point of the cooking oil. It should not cut out until 400-425 so either the fryer is occaisionally getting a lot hotter than you think or the hi-limit has gotten weak due to the erratic operation of the thermostat. I would recommend that you change both the thermostat and the hi-limit.

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.

first make sure you have a 1/2 psi regulator. If you do, turn the main gas valve to "pilot" and hold it in. The pilot area is behind the burners if you're kneeling in front of it (has kind of a Y shape). while continuing to hold the knob in try to light it every few seconds until it stays burning. keep holding the knob for about 30 seconds and slowly release it. the pilot should stay lit. turn the knob to "on" and set you're desired temp from the TSTAT.

You have a bad gas valve. It's not reading the signal from the thermostat. The gas valve is stuck open.

Hi there, it sounds like your thermopile, for the pilot, is failing during use, when this happens, the small DC voltage it generates is less than the gas valve requires to stay open, and shuts off the pilot, which shuts off the main burners. Another thing that could be happening, is the hi limit is opening prematurely, instead of shutting of the pilot at 450 deg. it now is opening at 325, or 225 or 250. Sometimes the sensing bulb gets broken where it pass's through the oil tank causing this symptom. If you temporarily bypassed the hi limit to test this also, and it still goes off, you need a thermopile. If it stays on, check your temp with a reliable thermometer, and see if it reads fairly close to your setting, if so, then you need a hi limit.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

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!
