The relay would not kick in, though there was a buzzing noise. So I slapped the relay a little and nothing happened. I turned the dial from "on" to "pilot" and the pilot flame went out. I cannot get the pilot flame to come back on, now.
With the dial set to "pilot" I can push in the red button and light the pilot. When I let go of the red button the pilot goes out. I cannot turn the dial to "on" with the button pushed in, and so cannot get the pilot to stay on without holding in the button.
When the thermostat is up high, so the boiler wants to boil, I can hear buzzing. I can slap the relay a little and hear clicking. However, with the pilot out, it obviously will not kick in.
Do I need to replace the relay? Should I take it off and clean it or look for burn spots?
For the pilot you have to hold the red button down for about a minute or two while it is lit, then turning it to on. If you tried this and it still wont stay lit then you can try replacing the thermocouple. For the relay the best way to tell is take voltage reading to see if the coil is getting voltage across it.relays are usually inexpensive,and easy to install.Just be sure to turn the power off befor touching the wires,and mark them so you know which wire goes to what terminal.

Assuming the pilot is working normally, when you turn the thermostat up past the current temperature of the oil, you should hear and feel a tiny click in the thermostat. If not, the thermostat is defective. If there is a click, a weak thermopile is occasionally to blame. Sometimes further heating the thermopile with a propane torch will cause the main burners to kick on. If replacing the thermopile does not solve the problem, you have a defective gas valve.
Hi there! You need to order a gas valve conversion kit (from nat to propane), propane pilot orifice and propane burner orifice, Gas valve conversion kit consists of a replacement spring thicker than of natural gas valve spring, gas valve cap and a sticker. Pilot orifice for propane has smaller bore than of natural. Burner orifice for propane has also smaller bore than of natural burner orifice (one for each burner). You will be able to find these parts on the list of Pitco Distributor when you visit http://www.pitco.com Regards.
Hi there. You can visit http://www.imperialrange.com , you can verify there the correct parts list for the model of your fryer for the conversion from natural to propane and you will be able to search there the nearest authorized parts and service provider in your area. You will be needing burner orifice for propane, pilot orifice for propane (if available, if not, the whole pilot assembly), Gas valve spring for propane (if available, if not, the whole gas valve for propane). Regards.
Burner orifice size for propane gas is number 55. You have to replace all burner orifice with this size if you want to use the fryer with propane gas. Pilot burner orifice should be replaced with propane pilot orifice.The gas valve spring should also be replaced with propane spring kit. The difference between the two spring is the natural gas spring is lighter or thinner compare with the propane gas valve spring.
check the supplier for the conversion kit.the kit contains burner orifice, pilot orifice and gas valve spring which are commonly needed for conversion from propane to natural gas or from natural gas to propane. ****natural gas orifice has larger bore than propane, gas valve spring for propane is thicker than for natural gas.
I have never owned the item you are having a problem with, but I have used and owned many gas items with a pilot light.
From what I have learnt over the years, I would not worry about the pilot light growing when the unit is turned on, or the noise. However, if the pilot light is staying on for more than a minute (Will burn excess gas in the pipes) or so after you shut the gas off, then your regulator could be leaking. If this is the case, then you should contact your local propane dealer and ask them to replace the regulator.
"IF THE REGULATOR IS LEAKING, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PUT THE TANK IN AN ENCLOSED VEHICLE!"
Sounds like your regulator is faulty, I would start there. Be sure any regulator you have installed is installed correctly, not backwards as reversed regulators will not work properly. Also be sure to keep regulators clean, there are breather holes in regulators to break vacuum when the regulator opens and closes, if these are clogged the regulator will not open or close properly. Hope this is helpful.
