Why wont the unit light? pilot is working fine

first be sure the valve is in the on position. sounds crazy but I've been there. Next even though the pilot is lit it may not be burning hot enough to make the Thermo pile produce the 750 millivolts the valve needs to operate. If the thermo pile is producing the proper current then the gas valve itself is the culprit. If you are not comfortable with gas and do have the proper testers You should call a pro. The pilot is easy to clean though. turn the gas valve to the off position and remove the pilot. When you remove the gas line to the pilot there is a small oriface inside that looks like a little thimble. Remove it and clean it. the gas flows through a very small hole that clogs very easy. Reassmble it tighten the gas line. Check for leaks with some bubbles and give it a try.

Pilot light is lit but fryer wont fire up

Ensure that the unit receives the gas pressure required on the nameplate. Check the thermopile, it should be free of soot or any dirt, and try to tighten all wiring connections.

Pilot light works but gas wont turn on.with temp guage turned up?

Check if you have turned the gas valve knob to "on" position after lighting up the pilot. If so check for the continuity of the thermostat terminals using an ohm meter. If the thermostat is good, try replacing the thermopile, if it does not correct the problem, try replacing the gas valve. Make sure that the unit receives sufficient gas pressure and volume before doing part replacements.

Pilot is off.

Most fryers have pilot lighting instructions on the inside of the door. If yours doesn't then find the gas valve, turn the knob to the pilot position, push in on the knob and light the pilot. Keep the knob pushed in after you lite the pilot for at least another 30 seconds. The pilot should stay lit.

Frilator pilot will light but fryer wont fire up

The thermocouple or thermopile is your culprit. If it is not sending the correct millivolt signal to the main part of the gas valve telling it to open then, the burners will not light. This is the cheapest part to start with. If after changing this out & you have the same problem then, you have a bad gas valve.

Lighting the fryer

If this is a milivolt unit, meaning no solid-state or computer/digital controlled. You would need to turn your gas valve to the pilot position, then press in and hold until you can light the pilot using a lighter (this may take several minutes, to bleed the air from gas supply) once there is a pilot flame present, you will need to hold the valve button in for about 45 seconds to heat the thermalpile. Once pilot is lit, thene turn to on position and proceeed to turning thermostate to set temp.

This is caused by a failing pilot safty bypass inside the gas valve itself. You will need to replace the gas valve.
