Those thermostat bulbs are the thermostat and hi-limit bulbs.They need to be secured to the fryer.The hi limit is tripping out because its sensing that the oil is too hot.Even though the oil isnt that hot the hi limit thinks it is.

SOURCE: fryer quits heating have to hit reset switch

This button should be a high limit switch. If it is a small red button mounted to a 2" x 2" or so device. You most likley have an issue with the thermostat letting it over heat. The best thing to do would be to replace both the thermostat and the high limit for safety reasons.

I have got lincat fryer j10 the pilot won't stay


Hi there.
Make sure that the thermopile is receiving enough heat from the pilot and if it does, check if the hi limit is good, check and tighten also all of the wiring connections, before replacing the gas valve.
Regards.

Hi there. Try cleaning the thermopile, it must be free of soot or any other form of dirt, the pilot flame should be of good quality, as well as the gas pressure.

Pilot won't stay lit


If a standing pilot won't stay lit, the usual cause is a bad thermocouple. The thermocouple is a safety device with a probe that is kept heated by the pilot flame and produces an electric signal. Wires from the thermocouple connect to the main gas valve. If the thermocouple fails, the main valve shuts off gas to both the pilot and main burner. When you try to re-light the pilot, it goes out again as soon as you release the pilot button on the valve.

A new thermocouple is only $10 or so, and it's pretty easy to change. There are a number of how-to sites and videos showing how to change the thermocouple in gas furnaces and water heaters, and the process is similar in commercial ovens and fryers. Once you see what the thermocouple looks like and how it's installed in some other appliances, you'll be able to identify it in your fryer and see how to change it. That should get your frying again.

Light pilot on Royal deep fryer. Pilot will not stay lit. Second fryer has larger pilot have no trouble keeping it lit. How can I adjust the pilot so that it will stay lit?


there is a small adjustment screw on the gas valve,turn it clockwise to increase pilot,if that does not work the vent cap on the gas regulator on the back of the unit could be stopped up,remove that cap ,clean out or replace unit can operate without it just fine.If you increase the pilot and it still wont stay lit replace the thermocouple

Pilot light won't stay lit.


Ensure that gas is getting to the pilot , or you may have a devective pressure regulator.
If gas is getting to pilot and pilot is turning off, then you need to replace the thermocouple.
The thermocouple function is to turn off the gas if there is not enough temperature, so to prevent gas leaks if the pilot light goes off.
Near to the pilot light there should a part similar to a small metal tube directly in contact with the flame. Thermocouple is wired back to the gas valve.
When the pilot is on, and temperature is steady, the thermocouple will generate a small voltage that will keep the gas safety valve open. In case the pilot light goes off, the thermocouple will cause the valve to close. When you hold the pilot light button , the thermocouple will normally reach enough temp to keep valve open.
If the termocouple is faulty, it will turn off as soon as you release the igniter button.
Replacing thermocouple is an easy repair.

Call the number listed on the owners documentation to get the replacement part.

You can not check a thermocouple by resistence. You have to check it by millivoltage when it is hot and sensing it should be above 500mv. I would be willing to bet that you have some type of particulate in the gas valve that is causing this problem.

No Pilot Light


This device actually uses a thermopile it is part number P5047541. There are two things to check here ensure that you have had the right part installed be verifying the part number and also check that the sensing end of the thermopile is directly in the path of the flame.
