Pilot light on thermostat click main burner doesn;t come on

Don't know if the pilot has been cleaned or the thermopile has been changed. The pilot being lit can be good to keep valve open but not strong if enough to open main burner. If after checking all the above, make sure you have gas flow from the valve, if so replace thermostat.

Pilot light stays lit when I turn the gas valve to on. But nothing happens when I Turn the thermostat on. Help

The thermostat control is bad, you will need to replace the thermostat switch and everything will work just fine. Basically the thermostat switch is not sending a signal to the gas valve telling to to turn on

This fryer has been giving us problems. After we

You can try putting a jumper wire between the two terminals on the thermostat after the pilot is lit to see if the valve comes on. It is less than 1 volt so don't worry. That will tell you if the problem is with the thermostat or the gas valve.

Light pilot on Royal deep fryer. Pilot will not stay lit. Second fryer has larger pilot have no trouble keeping it lit. How can I adjust the pilot so that it will stay lit?

there is a small adjustment screw on the gas valve,turn it clockwise to increase pilot,if that does not work the vent cap on the gas regulator on the back of the unit could be stopped up,remove that cap ,clean out or replace unit can operate without it just fine.If you increase the pilot and it still wont stay lit replace the thermocouple

Vulcan Deep Fryer, burners shut off, remains off!

sounds like your gas valve to me, you need a manometer to test it under gas pressure.
