Most likely the high limit is defective. This can shut down both the pilot and main burners. You can try jumping the high temp sensor leads to see if this solves the problem, assuming it is a standard Robertshaw high limit. Do this only to test, however. Bypassing the high limit can be very dangerous if the thermostat is defective or the oil level is below the sensor bulb. If your high limit has more than two wires, you may need a wiring diagram to determine which leads to jump.

I cleaned my griddle and oven now my pilot wont lite and two burners are not correctly


You must have got some cleaner or water into the pilot light or clogged the burners. Make sure everything is cleared of any excess grease or residue from the cleaner.

On a Royal mod.RFT-50 deep fryer,the pilot light lights but when I turn the temp knob to light the main burners i don't get the gas needed for lite up and the pilot goes almost out.


If you have a gas pressure regulator for the fryer, the leak limiter on it is probably clogged with grease. Replacements are available for a few dollars.

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.

Not light


check to make sure that the poilet lite flame is touching the tip or top of the thermocouple.
the pilot lite needs to heat up the thermocouple so that the thermocouple opens the gas to the main gas log. a cold thermocouple shuts off the gas to the main gas log or gas burner and a hot thermocouple opens the gas to the main burner.
the pilot lite flame must be touching the thermocouple to heat it up.
pilot lite orface needs to be clear to let the pilot flame gas through with enough pressure so that the little flame can reach & touch the thermocouple. Pilot lite gas feed tube must be clear to let gas through. Use compressed air or a fine sewing needle, or even carb cleaner to clear out orface hole and gas feed line to pilot lite.

important!! WARNING:
if you use carb cleaner,make sure all the carb cleaner is dry,soaked up with paper towell or kleanex tissue and blowed out with compressed air , because carb cleaner can burn just like gasoline; so any carb cleaner must be compleatly gone before you attempt to lite the pilot lite.

The burners will not light. The pilot does light. I had my staff try to hit anything that looked a reset, but I don't know if the high limit switch has a reset or if the switch itself is bad.


The high limit switch has nothing to do with the pilot light, but will shut down the main burners. It the pilot light will not stay lit, then it is most likely the thermocouple. If the pilot light will not light at all, then gas is not reaching the pilot. Most likely, the pilot light tube is clogged with grease. When you push on the button to light the pilot, you are overriding all safeties inside the unit and sending gas to the pilot. Also make sure that the unit itself is getting gas. New regulations require a shut off within the hose that feeds the appliance which will shut off due to a surge of gas through the hose. To reset it, disconnect/reconnect the hose at the intake end and when you turn the gas back on, turn it on slowly.

Pilot does not turn on. Fryer was in use n working perfectly. We turned pilot off cause fryer was not gonna be in use. so now pilot does not turn on.


Make sure the high limit isnt tripped. There is a red button down next to the thermostat that you push to reset the high limit. If it will not light after that it is probably a bad thermocouple - This is the sensor located in the pilot flame.
Make sure it is well positioned in the pilot flame. If not adjust it into the flame, if so replace it. They are generally available at your local hardware store because they are also used in water heaters and home furnaces. They are pretty cheap and fairly easy to change. It ususally requires that you remove one or two of the main burners for easy access. Empty the grease first just to be safe. Remove the nut from the top of the drain valve handle and remove the handle. Look to the top of the main burner or burners in front of the pilot and there are two bolts on each burner that need to be loosened (not removed) and then lift the burner to remove the bolts from the slots and pull the burner down and out. Remove and replace the sensor (should be fairly straight forward), Replace the burners and valve handle, refill with grease, and try to light it again.

Pilot lights but main burner dose not light when turned on


possibly a fowled thermocouple if the thermocouple doesn's sense the pilot flame then it will not send a signal to the gas valve telling it that its okay to open cause the pilot is lit.

Pool Heater Light main burner then goes out


take millivolt reads while main burner is on.i suspect you will see a drop in voltage until you get to point where it will no longer operate burner(around 200mv).if this is the case you probably have poor pilot characteristics due to dirty pilot,pilot out of adjustment ,obstruction or insufficient gas pressure

Pilot going out when thermostat turned on


This is caused by the safty bypass feature on the gas valve. You will need to replace the gas valve. This problem is a safty interlock built into the valve when it fails it will not let the main valve portion fire.
