Fryer wont lite when temp knob is turned up to 350 range pilot is lit


Observe the thermostat when set to higher temp, you should hear a clicking sound as the mechanical contacts inside closes, at this point, burners should fire up.
Thermostat can be tested by checking the continuity across its terminals (using an ohm meter) when set to a temperature higher than the oil temperature.
Also, the thermopile must be free of soot or any form of dirt and the pilot must have good flame quality, gas pressure should meet the nameplate's requirement.

After we used our fryer last time, there was a soot build up on our exhaust. Just tested it again, and it seems to be running really hot. Do we need a new thermostat? How much is a thermostat?


Soot is formed when fuel combustion is incomplete. Check if the gas pressure is sufficient and of correct type (natural or propane gas). Thermostat can be checked by observing if the burner flame goes off when the oil temperature reached the thermostat setting. Price can be checked at pitco website on www.middleby.com.

Fryer overflows often, turned thermostat down from 350 to approx 340 but food does not cook then. could the thermostat be bad? 10 degrees should not make that much difference.


Does the fryer have a" temperature reached light"? If so switch the fryer on and with the thermostat dial starting at its lowest setting increase the temperature setting in small increments. When the light indicates temperature reached, increase the thermostat dial temperature. Continue until maximum temperature reached.

If (starting from cold) the temerature reached light only shows when high up on the thermostats temperature scale, then unfortunately the thermostat needs replacing.

Hope this helps.

The deep fryer does not heat up to 375 degrees. It only heats up at the lower temperatures. Can you explain what might be wrong with the fryer


Hello. It is likely that the thermostat on this fryer is off. try turning it to a higher setting and testing the temp. with a separate theremometer.

High limit kicks out fryer and pilot light can


Since you've mention the pilot light goes out at 400 degree F, then we are talking a gas Deep Fryer. The deepfryer usually use at 350 degree F for chips or else. Because the oil will start breaking down its quantity of frying very quickly over that temperature. Most people set at 350 degree F. Now we comes back to your problem, First you should have a deep fryer thermometer they espcially made for deep fryer, (You only mention 400 or better ) that make me think you're only guessing. Knowing the temperature is very important, most Hi limit is set at 420 degree F.
To me it seen the Hi Ltd control is working and that is why it cutting out the pilot when it reach its limit but we don't know what temperature that when the hi limit cutting out at.
When you have a thermometer, put it in the cold oil and turn the temperature to 100 degree F to see what the temperature control cutting out at. slowly increase your setting until it cutting out at 350 degree F . If you set at 250 degree F and the thermometer already reaching 350 degreen F then don't go any further , your temperature control is defective and need to be change a new one.
This is only the first step, you still have to check out the Hi ltd control to see how good its condition is,so far your information say it cutting out at 400 or better. But you've to be sure, because it is a safety control. Hope that will help you , God Bless.
