SOURCE: problems with fryer

your problem is the thermostat is bad.the reason it shuts down is that it trips the hi limit.the hi limit is a saftey device that shuts the system down so the oil doesnt get too hot and catch on fire.remove all the oil from the tank and you should see 2 skinny metal bulbs one is the hi limit bulb the other is the t-stat bulb,make sure they are secured to the bracket.if the t-stat bulb isnt you will also have this issue,simply reattach it.let me know.

SOURCE: ifs40 w/ new thermopile

If the pilot shuts off within seconds of the burner, I strongly suspect you are having a problem with the hi-limit circuit. Check your wiring. The slightest unwanted grounding will cause the valve to drop out.

You also need to inspect the mounting of the bulb for the high limit. Make sure it isn't covered in debris. It should be clamped close, but not touching the heat exchanger. Grease needs to be able to flow on both sides of the bulb.

You'll need to test the switch with a meter or a jumper (for TESTING ONLY!). Remember, the hi-limit switch may be doing it's job and be the symptom, not the cause. But if the switch is tripping open prematurely, you'll need to replace it. (Part# 1177) Are you testing with enough oil in the vat?

I had a very simular problem. My fryer would do exactly as you described, but sometimes the pilot light would stay on until the burners tried to re-ignite and then it would go out.
I finally had to call the gas company. They took the pilot light apart and cleaned it. The fryer works perfect now.
Hope this helps!

When I turn the oven down the gas goes off and have to start again


read the user manual as the temp should be thermostat controlled were with gas there is always a pilot light burning when the oven is in use and when the set temp is reached the gas burner is shut off and when the temp fall below set point , the gas is turned on again and the pilot light starts the burner
by using the timer , when the time is reached the gas is turned off and of course you will have to relight it
if you do not have a user manual , download one from google or talk with a gas repair shop

HELP PITCO FLAMES OUT BLOWS OUT PILOT LIGHT CAN WORK FOR 3 OR 4 TIMES SHUTS DOWN NICELY THEN WOOF SMALL BLOW BACK CAUSEING PILOT TO BLOW OUT THEN HAVE TO WAIT 10MINS TO RELIGHT


This is caused by a pressure problem. There should be an adjustment screw on the gas valve regulator. Also, make sure the pilot orifice has been removed and cleaned. There is also an adjustment screw on the gas valve for the flow of gas to the pilot.

Our Imperia fryer pilot lights shuts of once the temp reaches 200 degrees


If both the main burner and pilot shut down at 200F, the high limit is bad. If only the main burners shut down, the thermostat is bad.

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.

Pilot light is working in a.m. when machine is started. After machiine runs up to temp (350 deg) the burner will turn off and pilot will go out also. After finding machine has shut off we turn it off and...


Ensure that the gas pressure being fed to the unit meets the standard as rated on the unit's nameplate.
The thermopile must be free of soot or any form of dirt.
Pilot flame quality must be good and can heat up the thermopile properly.
Wiring connectors must be tight.

Regards.

Seems like it shuts off when its gets to a certane temp have to relight pilot


Check if the oil temp does not reach 450F because if it does, it will trip the high limit device that will shut off the burner flame as well as the pilot flame. But if high limit device trips off prematurely (at temperature less than 450F) you have to replace it. Just make sure that its sensing bulb does not touch the fire tube.
