Question about Pitco Frialator 35CS Deep Fryer

1 Answer

Pilot light will not stay lit once pilot button is not depressed. Replaced thermopile already. Any suggestions? Also don't have milivolt detector. Thanks

What would be the most likely cause of the malfunction if the thermopile is new?

Hi there.
Check the wiring, loose wiring terminals can disrupt the current going to gas valve.
Try also to connect jumper wire across the hi limit terminals, if this do the trick, replace the hi limit device before operating the fryer.
Lastly, the gas valve may be defective.
Regards.

SOURCE: Pitco 35C+ fryer. Pilot lights fine; main burner

Its a simple design. If the thermophile does the work of powering the fryer control. Do you have a good pilot flame? If the pilot flame ain't good enough then the millivolts won't be enough to operate the solenoid on the gas valve. Most folks replace both the pilot and thermophile on these fryers since the grease makes such a mess of everything. If the pilot generator is fine then the gas valve is next.

Just replaced thermopile generator and pilot will not stay lit


Check the new thermopile with a millivolt meter and make sure it has the correct output not connected to the gas valve.If it does,then the gas valve is defective.Make sure to test ONLY the thermopile.If it does not generate enough millivolts the gas valve will not open.If the piliot is dirty it will not generate enough heat for the thermopile.Make sure you have a good,strong,blue flame at the pilot.You said the piliot will not stay lit?If not then start by blowing air back through the piliot where the flame comes out with compressed air.hopefully that will clean it well enough.If not you may have to take the pilot tubing loose from the valve and use compressed air to clean it.Make sure when you reconnect the tubing to the valve USE FINGERS ONLY to start tyubing or you may crossthread the tubing....and thats NOT a good thing.Good Luck.

I changed the thermo coupler and the pilot light does stay lit but the burners won't light


If you are referring to a gas fireplace:

  • Make sure the pilot knob is turned from "pilot" to "ON" or it will never run.
  • If the pilot knob is "ON", and the pilot is lit, but the burner won't light, it could be a bad Thermopile. The thermopile is the other safety mechanism in the pilot assembly that controls the burner.

I have an H250 NG and when I light the pilot it goes out when I release the pilot button on the gas valve?


The first thing That comes to mind is a bad pilot generator or thermopile. This makes a small half volt charge that energizes the magnets that open the two stages in the gas valve. Next would be a bad gas valve itself. You will need a milivolt meter to check both of these. Lastley is the safty circut. This is the string of switches that can shut the heater down if problems exist. Their are two sets of wires connected to the gas valve. One set goes down to the pilot, this is for the pilot generator. The other set is the safty circut. If you remove these wires and the pilot lightes and stays lit the problem is in the circut. Still no pilot then it is in the pilot or valve. Good luck.

Pilot light on gas fireplace will not remain lit


check that you have thermopile connections are right at valve and that the flame is hitting both thermopile and thermocouple good. pilot falme may be blue but is it strong? a strong pilot has flame completely hitting both safety's. if pilot is small check pilot orifice inside pilot hood, a quick fix which may work is put vacuum over pilot hood and **** out any dust in there, just be gentle...

Cozy Wall Gas Furnace Pilot won't stay lit


Hi, if you have replaced the thermocouple or thermopile generator, and it keeps going out, you will need to replace the gas valve. That's all it can be is the milivolt coil on the valve, trust me. I have been through this many times.
Sincerely,

Pilot wont stay lit


If it will not stay lit from a cold start, you will need a thermopile. You can check it if you have a DC meter that will test milivolts. It should be putting out between 300 and 500. If it will not stay lit after the pot gets hot, you will most likely need a high limit. Try pushing the red button below the thermostat. This will reset the high limit.

Pilot light will not stay lit


use a torch to simulate pilot flame and read milivolt. if ok then make sure pilot flame is fully contacting thermopile. also make sure thermopile wiring connections are clean and secure.

Pilot will not stay lit after button release


most likely you have a thermopile that has low output. it takes about 100mv to maintain pilot light
