I start the pilot up... burners go on but once it reaches temperature the burners shut off and dont start up again????/ what could be the proble


Hi there.
Check the thermostat, it may have a mechanical defect (not closing contacts once it reaches the cut-in temperature).
If the pilot flame goes out with the burner flame once the ste temp is reached, your fryer may have problem with the hi-limit (premature tripping).
Regards.

After oven reaches desired temperature, it has late ignition that turns off the pilot AND OVEN WILL NOT STAY ON.


Sounds like the pilot is mounted to far away from the burner. I have seen it happen before where the pilot has detached and the main burner will just keep pumping gas in until it hits the pilot flame and just flash flames and everything goes out.

Or it just could be a bad thermocouple that is going out all the time.

I light the pilot everything is fine then when i go to turn thermostat on pilot light goes small and burners dont light and when i turn back to pilot the gas ignites and goes out


Sometimes certain models turn off if you touch the thermostat before it lites...
We've seen this happen many times, so you would need to light the fryer first, wait until it's stable before turning your thermostat to desired temperature.

Half way through heating pilot goes out


Sounds like your thermostat is bad, and/or high limit switch too. Check the thermostat first, and if you replace that, and it still does not work right, then the high limit next... Feel free to call Comstock Castle and ask for help directly through their parts/warranty dept. They should be happy to help you troubleshoot the problem....

Lighting pilot light


Pilot assembly is located inside the bottom compartment, between the the two middle burners while the gas valve is located under the burner manifold. Make sure that the gas line where the unit is connected is open. You need to turn the gas valve knob to "Pilot" position and depress it (to allow the gas to flow on pilot) then light the pilot assembly using a lighter with extended nozzle ( burner igniter). Once the flame is present at the pilot assembly, wait for about 15 seconds (allowing thermopile to heat up) the gradually release the gas valve knob. If the pilot flame is stable, turn the gas valve knob to "ON" position and set the thermostat to desired temperature setting. This will ignite the burners and heat up the oil to set temperature. Just remember, do not do this if there is no oil on fry tank.

I own a Comstock-Castle Range model C330-11.It has been converted to use propane. It has 4 burners @ 13,000 BTU ea and a griddle @ 20,000 BTU on the stove top. It has a single oven with no broiler @ 25,000...


Castle ranges don't require a electrical plug. If converted to LP/propane make sure the water column (WC) is set to 10 inches. If it is less you will have pilot light problems even if the thermocouple is strong. If set at 10 inches, most likely problem is the thermocouple. Correct replacement at Castle is approx. $25. The manual for current ranges should cover most issues but the Castle stopped making the C series ranges in the 80s. All controls and most parts are still available.

I have a 40c+ss pitco fryer.the pilot will go out at random times.Could be 1hr or 24 hrs after it is lit. The gas valve has been change, and the thermalpile has been replaced.


Check if your pilot flame sufficiently heats thermopile during operation and make sure also that it is free of soot or any form of dirt, thermopile generates small amount of electricity to energize pilot and main valve of the gas valve for pilot and main burner operation. This electricity passes through hi limit mechanical contacts. Hi limit on fryers act as safety device which will shut down pilot and burner flame when oil temperature reaches 450F.
If your fryer is set at 350F and over shoots up to 450F (which will trip hi limit and shut down pilot and burner flame), the thermostat is not good, but, if hi limit trips on temperature much lower than 450F, hi limit is bad.

What do I need to do to switch over from natural to LP gas?


You will need the following Castle part #s
17003A- Pilot head assy LP gas @ $49.
17006L-Convertible Press Regulator LP gas @$29.
Give Castle Stove a call @ 800-637-9188 to make sure that is all that you will need. They were the only two parts I found on there website (www.castlestove.con) under your model # for LP gas conversion. There might be a need for a conversion kit for the gas valve.

Pilot light


Assuming that your make up air and exhaust hood are properly balanced, no negetive pressure conditions exist, your gas manifold pressure is at 4" wc, your air/gas mix on the burner set correctly, the your problem would be the pilot adjustment. If the flame is not intense enough flame to survive the sudden air shock, it will go out.

The pilot height should be about 1 1/2". Your Pilot orfice could also need cleaning. Eliminate excessive draft in your kitchen.

Here is the manual for your unit, it covers these topics.

Main burner will not light or goes out before grease reaches temperature.


before replacing any parts,clean out the pilot,burner orfices and burners.if this doesnt solve your problem replace the thermopile.call 18884hobart and get the parts dept.tell them you need a thermopile for the model of your fryer.95% of the time the t-pile goes bad.theres also the hilimit in the unit that kills the gas if the fryer gets too hot but i dont think thats the problem.also check all wiring connections to the gas valve (clean and free of grease).drain the oil in the tank and youll see 2 bulbs ones the thermostat bulb the others the hilimit bulb.make sure their secured to the bracket.
