Question about Pitco Frialator 45C Deep Fryer
Hi, I've reviewed your problem, and understand that the pilot is failing to stay lit. YOu said there was a small fire that did get hot.
The gas valve uses a very low current solenoid to maintain a pilot. the thermopile generates the current to hold the pilot valve open. It is possible that you ruined the gas valve. If you have a multimeter, you can check this solenoid by testing the leads where the thermopile connects to the gas valve.
The center of the thermopile is one lead, and the casing is the other. Use a good digital VOM to test this. If you find a reading of infinity, or a zero ohms, then most likely the gas valve is ruined.
There should not be any other component in the pilot circuit. The other sensors control the actual flame.

Could the heat have deteriorated a component in the gas valve?
offcourse that is quite possible and under the range of acceptance
Could the problem be in the pilot tubing or somewhere else in the gas line?
pilot tubing is real sensitive and this the one that has to be taken care of
what about the hi limit wire and high limit switch?
when trouble hits hard science cannot guarantee or define limits
