Deep fryer catching on fire


From the video it appears many things could be wrong. The baffles and burner tubes could be clogged, the burner itself can be clogged, the flue is blocked, or this unit is using the wrong type of gas, ie: propane on a natural gas fryer.
Recommended steps for troubleshooting.
1. Verify proper gas type. Natural or Propane.
2. Check Burners, tubes, and baffles, clean all soot and debris from them.
3. Check for and remove any obstructions from the flue.

Soot build up


Flame is Orange? If so, propane is "choked", not enough air. Remove burners, clean each burner hole with a same size metal dowel (coat hanger works well) flush out inside of burner with garden hose, hi pressure air through all holes to dry. Replace burners ONLY after also cleaning chambers and chimney (garden hose and long brush). Do not forget to clean pilot light area too.
Most Imperials are pre-set air intake. Check gas pressure if able, 3" NG, 10" LPG. Good Luck

RED HOT FLUE EXHAUST


Hello. Yes this is normal for this type of fryer, meant more to cook the product, as efficiently as possible, and guzzle gas pretty good. If the orange is near the bottom of the flue, that is pretty good, there is , or should be insulation on the outside of the flue, or if the air gap is large enough, no insulation at all. Not getting near the exhaust pipe is advisable, or you will be burned. The gas pressure is important thought, if the burners are over/under pressured, it will affect the burn enough to damage, and shorten the life of the fry vessel. Call a local authorized servicer and have a check up, will not be free, but will save expense of something not being correct, most places, you pay an hour to check it good enough.

Hope that helped, and thank you.

Fryer IFS 40. Burner not getting on.


If the pilot light stays lit then there is no problem with the thermocouple. What you have is a problem with the thermostat or the gas valve operator. try jumping the thermostat wires and see if the gas comes on. If so simply replace the thermostat.

Imperial deep fryer model: IFS-40


Sounds like the pilot is dirty,if you have propane gas this is your issue,replace the pilot either way.
