Question about Imperial Kitchen Appliances - Others
Thanks for your question. Because you have posted this in the Deep Fryer Section I would like to ask if this is indeed a commercial quality fryer.
The answer to this question would be best answered with the make and model # of the unit.
However, Generally speaking unless the glass over the flame sensor is completely covered in grease, or has become obstructed by food the flame sensor is not a serviceable part as far as cleaning. If it's not obstructed or covered in grease than chances are that it is not functioning any longer.
If this is a 2 wire sensor you can use an ohm meter to test it. By turning off the power to the fryer, using a lockout take on the Electrical panel, and unplug the unit is recommended. Then remove the wires from the sensor. Using alligator clamps attach the ohm meter leads to the sensor, Color doesn't matter. One lead per connection. Make sure that any grease or flammable materials have been cleaned from the area prior to testing the sensor. Because you are going to using an open flame I also suggest a fire extinguisher be present ( Just in cause of a accident) Than using a propane mini torch or a bic lighter present the flame from the torch in front of the sensor and watch the ohm meter should have a 0.00 reading. U can also set the ohm meter to tone so that you can hear it instead of having to watch it.
If you get a tone or a 0 reading that will indicate the sensor is working. If the sensor is working than the next issue would be the ignitor or the gas valve circuit itself.
If you have further questions please feel free to contact me.
