I'm getting a lot of soot from my propane fired fryer. Otherwise works well.


The burner flames must be BLUE. Yellow flames will produce soot. Sounds like the burner orifice size needs to be checked.

The burner will not be lit and the ignition goes out


There are several possible causes of this problem, aside from a loose or damaged wire, which is uncommon. The cause in about 95% of the cases is a thermopile that has gone bad. The thermopile is the small cylinder that is attached to the pilot assembly where part of the pilot flame can contact it. It has a cable or wire going to the gas valve, high limit switch, or both. When hot enough, it produces and electrical current that keep the pilot on and allows the main gas valve to open. Be sure that you have a good pilot flame. The pilot may need to be cleaned or adjusted. The thermopile is not hard to replace in most gas fryers and not too expensive. This often starts as an intermittent problem. The second possible cause is a defective high limit. The high limit is a small rectangular device with wires going to the gas valve and a tiny stainless tube that goes through the bottom of the kettle to a sensor bulb, like the thermostat has. These are usually self resetting, but may have a small red reset button. If present check the reset. If no reset, jump the two wires and see if the fryer will now light. If so, the high limit is defective, assuming the fryer is not over temperature. If defective, replace. Do not operate the fryer in this condition as there is no over temperature protection. The next cause is if the oil is too hot, in which case the high limit will shut off both the main burner and the pilot. The pilot cannot be relit until the fryer cools down and the high limit resets. If the oil is too hot, usually over 425F, replace the thermostat. If the high limit trips when the oil is in the normal operating range, replace the high limit. The final cause is a bad gas valve. This is not too common, but the gas valve is expensive and a bit difficult to replace. Check all of the other causes first.

Commercial deep fryer keeps getting to hot, having to reset, is it possible to replace thermostat ??


Hi there.
Your fryer may have problem in cutting off the heating element power (electric fryer) or burner flame (gas fryer) for temperature regulation which is thermostat's main function.Thermostat is replaceable, you have to identify the manufacturer of your fryer to get the exact component.
Regards.

My flame keeps on going out on my turkey fryer it has a heat sensor on it how do i position the sensor so the flame doesnt go out


The heat sensor for your turkey fryer is preset to 375 degrees F. Once the oil reaches that temperature, the sensor turns the flame OFF, so that the oil will not boil over and ignite. Once the oil cools to 325 degrees F, the burner can be relighted . Use extreme caution when relighting the burner. Altering or repositioning the heat sensor would make the fryer unsafe to operate.

I'm sorry. I which I had better news for you. Always, err on the side of caution & safety when dealing with open gas flames.

Recently replaced all 5 burner tubes and now when I light the grill it doesn't get hot enough - stays around 250 degrees.


Gerald, when you turned the gas tank valve back On, after replacing the burner, the OPD Valve in the grill tank partially locked up the grills gas regulator. To solve this problem, follow the steps below:

1. Turn the gas valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes.

2. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion,
slow).

3. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the grill first and turn it to HIGH. Does
the flame height look correct for the highest setting? If so, light the remaining burners the same
way. Now, to all the flame heights look normal for the highest setting. if so, you solved the
problem.

4. Close the hood/lid of the grill and allow it to preheat for at least 15 minutes. The temperature
reading (if your grill thermometer is correct) should between 400 & 450 degrees F, depending on
outside air temperature. Which is hot enough to sear a steak.

If none of the above corrected the problem. You will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly, because the regulator is partially locked up. You can pickup one at any home center or hardware store that sell gas grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you to troubleshot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Flame goes off when temp. reaches 250 degrees, use to stay on 350 degrees without problems an them started acting up and won't reach that temp any more, disconnect the pilot automaticly


Hi limit device trips prematurely (should only trip when oil temp reaches 450F). Check if the hi limit sensing bulb (located inside the fryer tank, between fire tubes) is not touching the fire tube because if it does, it will sense the heat from burner flame which is much higher than oil temp.

Cant get the flame to stay lit after holding the red button


THIS IS FROM BRIKMANN WEBSITE SUPPORTMake sure the tip of the thermocouple is located over the edge of the burner so that it gets hot when the burner is in operation. Also, check all the wiring connections to make sure nothing has come loose. It is also important to use the turkey fryer with the pot that comes with the unit. The pot must sit on the spring loaded temperature switch in order to determine the temperature of the liquid in the pot.

Main burner too hot & 2nd burner pilot won't


Set t/stat to 250 degrees. If it does not shut off after about 5 minutes, replace t/stat.If shuts off, must be calibrated Pilot may be dirty, flame weak. If flame strong, replace thermopile(pilot generator). If weak, must remove and clean pilot orifice inside pilot.

DEAN SR142GPS Flame Issue


A gas valve is actually 2 valves in one. The first is your pilot valve, when the pilot is lit, the flame heats a thermocouple or thermopile & that heat produces a millivolt signal that is sent to main gas valve( second part) & tells it that pilot is established and to open to allow main burners to light. The 3 "little flames" were coming from the orfices on the burner manifold. If you are absolutely sure you put the gas valve back in the same direction as it came out (arrow on bottom of valve pointing to the fryer/burners) & any springs or adjustment screws were not mucked with, then there is a malfunction in the gas valve. It needs to be replaced.
