Did you check to see if the knob on the gas valve is set to on?

I have an imperial fryer. Pilot is on but main burners don't ignite. Pilot looks normal & thermostat clicks when turned


Number 5 is your thermopile/pilot generator. It is a pilot generator that does 2 things. It holds open the valve with a safety magnet and it operates the safety valve solenoid whenever the control stat calls for heat. Overtime they get weak and will hold the pilot but not operate the valve solenoid. I would replace that pilot generator.thermopile and party on!

I light the pilot everything is fine then when i go to turn thermostat on pilot light goes small and burners dont light and when i turn back to pilot the gas ignites and goes out


Sometimes certain models turn off if you touch the thermostat before it lites...
We've seen this happen many times, so you would need to light the fryer first, wait until it's stable before turning your thermostat to desired temperature.

Pilot light on thermostat click main burner doesn;t come on


Don't know if the pilot has been cleaned or the thermopile has been changed. The pilot being lit can be good to keep valve open but not strong if enough to open main burner. If after checking all the above, make sure you have gas flow from the valve, if so replace thermostat.

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.

Lighting pilot light


Pilot assembly is located inside the bottom compartment, between the the two middle burners while the gas valve is located under the burner manifold. Make sure that the gas line where the unit is connected is open. You need to turn the gas valve knob to "Pilot" position and depress it (to allow the gas to flow on pilot) then light the pilot assembly using a lighter with extended nozzle ( burner igniter). Once the flame is present at the pilot assembly, wait for about 15 seconds (allowing thermopile to heat up) the gradually release the gas valve knob. If the pilot flame is stable, turn the gas valve knob to "ON" position and set the thermostat to desired temperature setting. This will ignite the burners and heat up the oil to set temperature. Just remember, do not do this if there is no oil on fry tank.

Pilot light goes out when burner turned on


Replace the pilot generator. You are not getting the millivolts you need when you turn on the fryer.

Imperial fryer IFS-40


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!
