Question about Pitco Frialator Kitchen Appliances - Others
I can push the pilot valve in but it won't turn any way. How can I get it to turn to the pilot or on position to light the pilot?
You turn the valve knob to "Pilot", push it in, and light it (use a long butane lighter-it's easiest) and keep the button pushed in for 20 seconds-1 minute. If the pilot stays lit, turn the dial to "On".

Is it doing more than lighting the pilot light? Or is the only action is the pilot light coming on, then off?
I would need to know more spacifically which model you had. Here is a list of manuals on the manufacturers web site so you can see for yourself.
If I were to look at your unit, I would first look for, and see if there is a sensor (sometimes appears to resemble a piece of coat hanger sticking through some ceramic) that the flames will heat. The warming from the flames generates electricity. The electricity keeps the gas flowing. It is a safety device to keep your home/business from exploding from a build-up of unburnt gas.
Make sure the sensor is being hit by the flame. If it is, and the flame still goes out, then it just might be bad. I would imagine it would run about $20 for a replacement part.
if it works, great! If not, then you are only out $20.

Replacing the t'stat can be hard. I would first evaluate the cost of the vat. Do you have any leaks now in it? I would replace the t'stats. The cost is much less than the cost of even a used one.

Check and clean the thermopile, it is the cylindrical piece of metal standing behind the pilot assembly.Try also to tighten its wiring connections to the gas valve and high limit.If it does not correct the problem, replace the thermopile.
