It sounds like your gas line either is clogged or your heating tubes are clogged up with oil/dirt/gunk? You can blow these out with a small hand held compressor or if you have a small enough brush, you can use that to clean it. The compressor is the quickest way, but have you cleaned this unit at all? Using a fryer boil out and running the fryer will also help clean out your holes, but again, the compressor works best.
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 unsafeto 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.
Observe the thermostat when set to higher temp, you should hear a clicking sound as the mechanical contacts inside closes, at this point, burners should fire up. Thermostat can be tested by checking the continuity across its terminals (using an ohm meter) when set to a temperature higher than the oil temperature. Also, the thermopile must be free of soot or any form of dirt and the pilot must have good flame quality, gas pressure should meet the nameplate's requirement.
Does the fryer have a" temperature reached light"? If so switch the fryer on and with the thermostat dial starting at its lowest setting increase the temperature setting in small increments. When the light indicates temperature reached, increase the thermostat dial temperature. Continue until maximum temperature reached.
If (starting from cold) the temerature reached light only shows when high up on the thermostats temperature scale, then unfortunately the thermostat needs replacing.
The pilot flame will stay lighted even when the thermostat is off, you have to turn the gas valve knob to off position in order to shut the pilot flame. But when burner flame remains on after shutting off the thermostat, the thermostat's mechanical contacts are shorted or remained engaged. If this is tha case, you have to replace the thermostat.
Make sure the knob on the gas valve is turned to the ON position after lighting the pilot. If the fryer won't come on....
1. The pilot flame may be weak causing low millivolts.
2. The thermostat is failing.
3. The pilot flame may be good but the pilot generator may be weak causing low millivolts.
As this unit operates on less than 1 (one) volt DC.... you can try to jump the thermostat leads on the gas valve to see if it comes on. If it does... change the thermostat.
Make sure the thermostat is turned off. Units burners will light as soon a pilot in it is on.
3-2Lighting the Pilot and BurnerFigure 1Figure 23.Push the knob in and light the pilot. Continue to hold the knob in for about 60 seconds after theflame 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 frypotTo ensure that the frypot is free of any contamination resulting from its manufacture, shipping, andhandling during installation, the frypot must be boiled out before first use. Frymaster recommendsboiling 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 coldwater 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 ownersmanual but it's just way to large. I do warranty for Frymaster is how I have access to it. Good luck
For the pilot you have to hold the red button down for about a minute or two while it is lit, then turning it to on. If you tried this and it still wont stay lit then you can try replacing the thermocouple. For the relay the best way to tell is take voltage reading to see if the coil is getting voltage across it.relays are usually inexpensive,and easy to install.Just be sure to turn the power off befor touching the wires,and mark them so you know which wire goes to what terminal.
This sounds to me as if your thermostat is not cycling the unit off. But I can see a second problem as well there should be a high limit cutoff to prevent it from running on and boiling over. I would check both. The thermostat is the dial or knob to regulate temperature and the high limit is the safty to prevent boil over or run on.
