SOURCE: lie up deep fryer

Hello. Could be three things, from what you describe, it sounds like your pilot is dirty, and not heating the thermopile enougher, and pilot off to energize the pilot portion of the valve. You could also have a bad thermopile, and no matter how long you hold it, or if your pilot is good, will it energize the valve. The last thing is that your hi limit has failed, and is preventing your gas valve from getting any voltage at all on purpose, as it is a temperature actuated switch that will shut the fryer off it it gets too hot, it could have failed and is now keeping the pilot from coming on, some of these have a reset button you can push ( usually red ) that will reset it, but then why did it trip? either your thermostat is out of calibration, the bulb may be broken in the tank somewhere, or it may just be tripping too early, like 375, instead of 425 to 460 depending on spec.
Hope this helped, and thank you.

SOURCE: pilot won't lite

When you turned on the thermostat you required more millivolts from the system and it failed. Low millivolts. That would tell you the pilot generator needs replacing. Make sure you have a good pilot flame hitting the pilot generator.

My pilot light won't stay lite,replace thermopile and still doesn't stay lite.


Hi there.
Check for wiring errors, fix and tighten all wiring connections. Make sure that the gas pressure is correct.
Check the hi limit and gas valve, one of those component may be bad.
Regards.

Fryer wont stay lit, only two burners will lite, and will only stay lit for about 5 min. will then go out and must start over


Check the gas pressure, it must meet the standard gas pressure written on the nameplate. Check also the quality of pilot flame, poor pilot flame quality will not properly heat up the thermopile which in turn will result in poor fryer operation.

Pilot lite does not have a full flame


Check if the fryer receives sufficient gas pressure as specified on nameplate, if so, your pilot orifice may be clogged.You can clean this by removing 2pcs pilot screw (+) then dismantling the pilot assembly using a vise grip and an adjustable wrench. Once the pilot hood is removed, you will see the pilot orifice. Make sure that the hole will not get large when cleaning.

We changed the thermostat in our unit and now the pilot lite won't stay lit!


You have to check the following:
1. Does the pilot flame has the ability to heat up the thermopile? Themopile must be properly heated in order to generate voltage to open the pilot valve as well as main valve.
2. When the thermolpile is heated, does it generates 500 millivolts? If not, your thermopile needs replacement. If it does and still the pilot flame wont stay lit, your gas valve needs replacement.
3. Does the hi limit device has continuity on its terminals? If there is no continuity on hi limit terminals, you have to replace it. One of the thermopile wire passes on this hi limit terminal to cut the voltage supply on pilot valve in case the oil temperature reaches 450F.
4. Check and tighten all wiring connections, millivolts generated by thermopile will not pass on loosely terminated wiring.

Pilot will lite,but burners will not lite when you turn the thermo. up


Make sure gas valve is in the ON position after lighting the pilot. Try jumping the thermostat terminals together to see if burner comes on. Three things could cause this problem 1. bad operator on gas valve 2.low millivolts 3. thermostat not functioning

Pilot won't lite. fryer is 6 months old. Did get pilot to lite once and as soon as we turned thermostat pilot went out.


When you turned on the thermostat you required more millivolts from the system and it failed. Low millivolts. That would tell you the pilot generator needs replacing. Make sure you have a good pilot flame hitting the pilot generator.

My pitco 28lb countertop gas deepfryer conv to propane it will l


Check if the flame quality of the pilot is good. Small amount of voltage generated by thermopile used in energizing pilot main valve coil during fryer operation relies on the quality of pilot flame, also, the thermopile itself should be free of soot or any form of dirt in order for it to absorb the heat from pilot flame.
Check also the gas pressure, it should meet the gas pressure required on the nameplate.

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.
