Defective thermocouple. It is the metal tube that is in the flame of the pilot light.

Hi, I am suposing that this fryer has worked good in this location before. If not, check to make sure it is set up right for your gas supply. (LP-Nat) There is something wrong with the gas - air flow in your unit. Look for obvious things first like exhaust being blocked, Flame dancing out side of fire area, Pilot too small, Build up of debris in fire box. The pilot should be able to be adjusted at the gas valve if it is too small. I believe you problem could be taken care of best with a good cleaning of the burner, fire box and pilot assemble. Make sure that all burner holes are clean especially around the pilot light. Check for oily debris inside the fire box to make sure its not leaking into the fire area. If you are unable to do this yourself, contact some one either in the restaurant equipment service business or heating and air conditioning business. Hope I have helped you. kstfas NOTE: If this answer does not rate at least 4 marks, (almost there) please do not rate. Thank You.

SOURCE: Frymaster Pilot not lighting

first thing I would check is to make sure the quick disconect on the gas hose is fully connected,and that the cut off valve is tured on.Sometimes the orifice in the pikot assembly can become stopped up.(where you light it by the burner)you can check there by undoing the gas line at the compression nut on the assembly.the hole is really small and you can use a small needle to clear it.

SOURCE: Pilot light

Are you sure that the fryer is not shutting off on high limit? The high limit switch will shut off the main burner and pilot as well. The high limit will trip if the thermostat is defective or if it is out of calibration and does not shut off the main burner when the set point is reached within normal operating limits. In either case the oil gets too hot, ~425F. Check the oill temperature when it shuts off. The high limit may also defective. Check for continuity between the high limit leads immediately after it shuts off. If the leads show no continuity at normal oil temperatures, the high limit is defective. The high limit will automatically reset when the oil cools down, so it must be checked immediately after shutdown.

There are other possibilities such as a weak pilot, weak thermopile, loose or damaged wiring or connectors, ect., but in these cases the fryer will often go out randomly, not just when the main burner shuts off.

SOURCE: I need to know how to lite the pilot on my frymaster fryer

fry099_16_4.gifMake sure the thermostat is turned off. Units burners will light as soon a pilot in it is on. fry099_16_5.gif 3-2 Lighting the Pilot and Burner Figure 1 Figure 2 3. Push the knob in and light the pilot. Continue to hold the knob in for about 60 seconds after the flame appears on the pilot. Release the knob. The pilot should remain lit.

I suggest that you boil it out before using. This cleans the pot of any contaminants here is how to do this.
Boiling Out the frypot To ensure that the frypot is free of any contamination resulting from its manufacture, shipping, and handling during installation, the frypot must be boiled out before first use. Frymaster recommends boiling out the frypot each time the oil or shortening is changed. 1. Before lighting the burner, close the frypot drain valve and fill the frypot with a mixture of cold water and boil-out solution or detergent. Fill to the lower oil-level line. 2. Light the fryer in accordance with the lighting instructions in Section 3.1. 3. Simmer the solution for one hour.
I would attempt to paste the complete owners manual but it's just way to large. I do warranty for Frymaster is how I have access to it. Good luck

Gas is on pilot won t light


Hello there: The problem you mention is not that clear. The pilot won't light or the pilot lighted but won't stay on is two different problems. If the pilot won't even light or no gas coming out off the pilot when you push down the pilot button it means the pilot orfice is blocked and what it need is cleaning the pilot orfice. If the pilot light is on but goes off when you release the button then the thermopile need to be changed. Hope this can help.

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

I am not able to get the pilot light lit on my frymaster gas fryer. I have had this issue before in the past two months and it was a clogged gas orphus. Were is the gas orphus located so that i can take it...


All Manuals are available on Frymasters website. the orifice is located in the pilot line where the gas line connects to the pilot. You will have to unscrew the fitting and remove the orifice. It is best to clean the entire pilot assembly and the gas line going to the orifice. Many times when a pilot tube has leaked and possibly burned incorrectly, the gas line can fill up with suit. Your clogged orifice could recur if the line is not cleaned as well. I have had to return to customers locations only to find an orifice I cleaned was clogged again. I then removed the pilot feed line, when I blew through is it filled my hand with black suit. It can be a messy and frustrating job to pull all this apart. You may want a professional. Be sure you have no gas leaks upon completion, use soap bubbles to check for leaks! Click here to download manual from frymaster
