SOURCE: high limit kicks out fryer and pilot light can

Since you've mention the pilot light goes out at 400 degree F, then we are talking a gas Deep Fryer. The deepfryer usually use at 350 degree F for chips or else. Because the oil will start breaking down its quantity of frying very quickly over that temperature. Most people set at 350 degree F. Now we comes back to your problem, First you should have a deep fryer thermometer they espcially made for deep fryer, (You only mention 400 or better ) that make me think you're only guessing. Knowing the temperature is very important, most Hi limit is set at 420 degree F.
To me it seen the Hi Ltd control is working and that is why it cutting out the pilot when it reach its limit but we don't know what temperature that when the hi limit cutting out at.
When you have a thermometer, put it in the cold oil and turn the temperature to 100 degree F to see what the temperature control cutting out at. slowly increase your setting until it cutting out at 350 degree F . If you set at 250 degree F and the thermometer already reaching 350 degreen F then don't go any further , your temperature control is defective and need to be change a new one.
This is only the first step, you still have to check out the Hi ltd control to see how good its condition is,so far your information say it cutting out at 400 or better. But you've to be sure, because it is a safety control. Hope that will help you , God Bless.

SOURCE: How do I test the high limit thermostat on pitco fryer

That can be dangerous. Do not do it alone and what should it be set at. If you cannot answer that then do not do it. Otherwise you raise the temperature until it cuts our, if the oil goes more then 10 above it is bad. Be sure you are not alone when doing this.

How do you troubleshoot a high limit switch for a Pitco VF35-S Frialator


To test, jump the two leads on the high limit. However, this sounds most like a faulty gas valve. Most high limits are designed to cut off both the pilot and the main buner.

How do I jump/bypass the high limit switch?


Hi there.
Hi limits can be bypassed by connecting jumper wire from common to normally close terminals but this should only be done for testing purposes, if proven defective you have to replace it with a good one before using the unit in cooking.
Hi limit is the safety device of fryers responsible for shutting the gas valve in case oil temp reaches 450f to avoid oil from catching fire.
Regards.

Can i disconect the hi limit switch and still use fryer


Hi there.
Hi limit switch/ device on fryers acts as safety device. It cuts gas supply on burners when it is triggered by high oil temperature in case the temperature regulating device failed to avoid further damage on equipment, property or life.
It is not advisable to operate the equipment with bypassed hi limit device.
I suggest to have it replaced first before putting the fryer back in operation.

The High Limit is a self resetting thermostat that acually works like an oven control. If the fryer is too hot it will cut off the gas burner valve voltage:
OEM PN is 00-854453
Original PN VUL854453

The 854453 number comes up often in the part search for the high limit.
The high limit contacts can be checked and reading the NO and NC terminals. This control / switch is normally closed until opened by heat at 450 Deg F.

How do I test the Pitco Frialator 35CS high limit switch


remove connections from hi-limit switch, and put an ohm-meter across connections then heat it with a match or heat source of that temp range,heat the face and watch your meter it will show open when hi limit reaches cutoff limit/if you need exact cutout temp,you will need to have one of those digital read-out temp gun

The element will show infinite resistence if defective. Overload switch.....Do you mean High Limit T/Stat? Use your ohm meter across terminals- should read closed circuit...0 ohms. If not, push red reset button...if clicks once, is now reset and contactors will close and unit will heat. If always clicks, replace limit t/stat Like wise, check themostat--should click once for heat demand and check cicuit same as limit t/stat. May have wire burned off terminal connector at element.

Fryer quits heating have to hit reset switch


This button should be a high limit switch. If it is a small red button mounted to a 2" x 2" or so device. You most likley have an issue with the thermostat letting it over heat. The best thing to do would be to replace both the thermostat and the high limit for safety reasons.

High limit switch went out on deep fryer. Cannot find anybody that has part. The actual switch didn't have a manufacture listed on it just these numbers: E50023LR30247


The thermostat in my hot tub has the exact same number on it which is odd, because hot tubs aren't supposed to go over 120 degrees. I wonder if the number stamped on the side of the part is fairly generic or merely refers to the casing.
If that's the case, you'll need additional info such the power rating on the fryer I suppose. I think fryers cooks at around 350 degrees -- maybe higher.
Also, mine has a sticker on it that reads TD103 149 and then below that 110F CR. I'm guessing that last part means 110 degrees Fahrenheit is where it tops out.
