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.

SOURCE: Pilot going out when thermostat turned on

It could also be the high limit thermostat shutting the pilot lite off.

How do I troubleshoot my fryer when I cannot get it to start?


In order to turn the knob to the pilot position you need to push the knob in slightly and then turn. Once the pilot position on the knob is lined up with the indicator on the valve, you can push it in and gas will flow to the pilot assembly.

I have the AF45 fryer. I cannot light the pilot on this fryer. I have tried all possible solutions to this but still wont work.


Normally, on manual gas fryers, people don't hold down the light pilot button long enough for the sensors to heat up, to tell the pilot to light.... That's our number one complaint, and number one service call, and it's almost always the same thing;..... Hold the button down much longer, then try to light it... If you still have trouble, call our service tech, Ray @ 888-542-5959, at Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, Ohio. Thanks, Susan REO

The pilot doesn't stay lit when you let the button out


The next step is to replace the thermal sensor. This device senses if the pilot went out or not and can shut off gas. These items fail over time.

Make sure that the pilot flame is sufficient to heat up the thermopile and also make sure that the thermopile is free from dirt or soot.

Trying to light the pilot light on deep fryer when i push button in it lights but when i let go of button pilot light goes out what am i doing wrong


If the pilot flame does not hold after releasing the button for at least 20 to 30 seconds, try to clean the thermopile and tighten all wiring connection on gas valve, thermostat and hi limit the repeat the process. The thermopile must be heated by pilot flame in order for it to generate small amount of voltage to open the pilot valve.
If this does not correct the problem, try replacing the thermopile.

Pilot light goes out when burner turned on


Replace the pilot generator. You are not getting the millivolts you need when you turn on the fryer.
