Question about Imperial IFS40 Deep Fryer
Hi there, it sounds like your thermopile, for the pilot, is failing
during use, when this happens, the small DC voltage it generates is
less than the gas valve requires to stay open, and shuts off the pilot,
which shuts off the main burners. Another thing that could be
happening, is the hi limit is opening prematurely, instead of shutting
of the pilot at 450 deg. it now is opening at 325, or 225 or 250.
Sometimes the sensing bulb gets broken where it pass's through the oil
tank causing this symptom. If you temporarily bypassed the hi limit to
test this also, and it still goes off, you need a thermopile. If it
stays on, check your temp with a reliable thermometer, and see if it
reads fairly close to your setting, if so, then you need a hi limit.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

Another factor might be that the regulator might be stuck. That is the assembly on the hose before it screws into the propane tank. This might need to be reset.
To reset the regulator, follow these steps (or check with your manufacturer)
1. Turn off the gas at the propane tank
2. Disconnect the hose from the propane tank
3. Open the lid your unit
4. Turn all the burner valves to high
5. Wait for 2 minutes (just time enough for a soda)
6. Turn off all the burner valves
7. Connect the gas line back up to the propane tank
8. Turn the gas on slowly on the propane tank
9. Light the grill using your normal lighting procedures
If the regulator was stuck, it should have been reset using these steps.
If you always turn off your burner valves first before turning off the gas at the tank, you will keep the regulator from sticking again.
If you still have low flame or yellow flame, give it a second try, although you might have a faulty regulator that is causing the low flame or yellow flame. That will need to be replaced if it is bad.
