SOURCE: Imperial Deep Fryer won't light

The pilot should not lower on main valve opening, this is a dangerous situation and should be handled by a pro.

SOURCE: Thermostat Issue DCS Fryer??

This sounds to me like the thermostat is not sensing and is reading a closed circuit all the time. You will probably need to replace the thermostat.

Thanks

SOURCE: Imperial deep fryer IFS40 pilot lights, turn on

Hi there, it sounds like your thermopile, for the pilot, is failing during use, when this happens, the small DC voltage it generates is less than the gas valve requires to stay open, and shuts off the pilot, which shuts off the main burners. Another thing that could be happening, is the hi limit is opening prematurely, instead of shutting of the pilot at 450 deg. it now is opening at 325, or 225 or 250. Sometimes the sensing bulb gets broken where it pass's through the oil tank causing this symptom. If you temporarily bypassed the hi limit to test this also, and it still goes off, you need a thermopile. If it stays on, check your temp with a reliable thermometer, and see if it reads fairly close to your setting, if so, then you need a hi limit.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

Pilot lite working. When temp switch turn up to 365 you can here a click but gas burners do not light. Sometimes when you turn the switch back and forth the burners will light and bring oil to temp. and shut off but as oil cools burners do not come back on.

SOURCE: comercial deep fryer pilot light goes out

This problem could be caused by a few different things. You should check the condition of your pilot and the thermocouple, if the pilot is weak due to being dirty you will not generate the optimum Millivolts to run the fryer, you may need to dissassemble and clean the pilot. The thermocouple needs to be correctly placed in the pilot assembly, if it has dropped down to where it is not in the flame it will not work correctly. You may need a new thermopile as it may not be generating millivolts as needed. Gas pressure can cause this as well, if the pilot goes out then the main burners come on you should check the gas pressure. One more thing to check is the hi-limit thermostat, if this is cutting out early your pilot will go out. Imperial uses a self-resetting limit, after a few minutes your fryer will relight and work until if cuts out again. If your fryer pilot stay on with the thermostat off for long periods of time and does not go out immediately when the burners come on and the pilot is clean, you may need a hi limit. This is a lot of info, I hope it helps.

What is a thermocouple and what does it look like


A thermocouple is a bi-metallic junction that when heated gives an small electric output. The tip of it sits where the pilot light is ( and it is a copper tube going to the gas valve) and the pilot light heats it up. It creates electricity after it heats up (which is why you have to hold the pilot light knob down when lighting) and opens the gas valve to keep pilot light lit after you let the pilot knob go back up. When it stays lit without having to hold it down, (make sure the thermostat is set low so it doesn't light the burner while you have your hand down there) then you turn the pilot knob to on. It should stay on and you can set the furnace to heat and raise the temperature where you want.

I have a Vulcan Gas wall furnace that is not working. We cannot work out how to light the pilot light. According to the documents we have it is a 26.4MJ model or the 40MJ model


The Quazar manual says....
-Thermostat control knob to 0
-Then press and hold down * (Star) button
-The press the "ignition" button one or more times until the pilot lights
CONTINUE to hold the * button for at least 15 seconds and release slowly making sure the pilot stays lighted.
-If the pilot goes out.. repeats steps above and hold the * button for much longer than 15 seconds and THEN release the * button slowly.

How do i light the pilot?


Turn the Gas Control Knob inside the heater compartment from OFF to PILOT. Push in the knob and hold it, at the sametime push the ignitor button (will probably be a Red button). Once the pilot lights, continue to hold the Control Knob down for one minute. Then ease off of it. If the pilot stays lit, turn the Control Knob to the ON position. The burner should light, if the Thermostat is set higher than the ambient temperature in the house. If the Ignitor button doesn't work, you can match light the pilot. Just be careful and follow the instructions above, once it's lit.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

We have a fairly new heater. went to turn on the pilot light and it won't ignite. what do you think is wrong? gas has been turned on before igniting


Sometimes it takes a few seconds for gas to reach the pilot. When you place the thermostat knob/gas control in the pilot position you must then depress it (push it down and hold it down). Wait a few seconds while holding it down, then press the ignitor button with your other hand while continuing to keep the thermostat knob depressed. You may have to hold the knob down and press the ignitor several times. You should see a spark at the pilot if the ignitor is working properly. Continue to hold the knob down for 30 seconds after the pilot lights, then release the knob, it will pop up & you can then rotate it to lo/med/hi and the heater will come on.,

Fryer over heats,hi limit switch was replaced as well as main gas valve.


Limit switch is last-ditch cutoff.

The thermostat that SETS the temp is where you should be looking.
