Will this heat up at all. Is it the same Model # as the one you .have some changes from the one you have for 2 years ago might have been made. check model # and make sure it is the same The light that go's out might be when the unit come up to the setting you put you Thermostat on meaning it heated up and will come back on when the temp drops and it starts to heat back up. it's that simple. if you just got this unit it should work if you turn the heating setting up . Let me know if the unit heats that is the starting point.

Pilot lights however when I turn the temp up to where I want it set to pilot goes out. The thermostat makes a ckicking sound when I tune it right before pilot goes out

Hi there.
Verify if the gas pressure fed to the fryer is correct. Check also for errors/ loose wire connections on gas valve, thermostat and hi limit, last possible cause, the thermopile is weak and cannot give enough power to energize pilot and main valve at the same time.

I have a Dean Model. SR142GN Fryer, I'm having a problem with the pilot. It will light, and stay on, when I turn the gas up it acts like it is supposed to, but after about 2-3 Mins it shuts off including...

Hi there.

Try cleaning the thermopile, it should be free of soot or any form of dirt. Make also sure that the gas supply is at rated pressure and type (as written on nameplate) and all wiring connections must be tight.

Pilot will lite,but burners will not lite when you turn the thermo. up

Make sure gas valve is in the ON position after lighting the pilot. Try jumping the thermostat terminals together to see if burner comes on. Three things could cause this problem 1. bad operator on gas valve 2.low millivolts 3. thermostat not functioning

DEAN SR142GPS Flame Issue

A gas valve is actually 2 valves in one. The first is your pilot valve, when the pilot is lit, the flame heats a thermocouple or thermopile & that heat produces a millivolt signal that is sent to main gas valve( second part) & tells it that pilot is established and to open to allow main burners to light. The 3 "little flames" were coming from the orfices on the burner manifold. If you are absolutely sure you put the gas valve back in the same direction as it came out (arrow on bottom of valve pointing to the fryer/burners) & any springs or adjustment screws were not mucked with, then there is a malfunction in the gas valve. It needs to be replaced.
