When you light the pilot, it stays lit, then you turn the the temp up on the thermostat, once it reaches its heat level and the cooking is done, turning off the thermostat also kills the pilot everytime,...

Thermopile generates 500 to 750 milli volts when heated properly, this small amount of electricity is used in energizing pilot and main valve coils of the gas valve for pilot and burner operation. Since the current is so small, it will not be able to flow on loosely fitted wire terminals or connectors, better check for this and tighten all wiring connections.
Also check if the gas pressure meets the standard pressure stamped on the unit's nameplate.

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.

Hello I have a Pitco Frialator 35CD Deep Fryer and as of one day ago, when I turn the wheel to turn the fire on (the wheel with the various temperatures) nothing happens? How do I fix it?

Assuming that the pilot is lit, when you turn the thermostat from off to the operating temperature, you should hear a click at some point. If you do not, the thermostat is defective. You can also double check this by detaching one of the two wires going to the thermostat and measuring for continuity between the two terminals. At off it should show no continuity. At 200F or above it should show continuity. This is the most common problem.

If the pilot will not stay lit or if it goes out when you increase the thermostat setting, it is usually a defective or weak thermopile (or thermocouple), or a defective gas valve. If replacing the gas valve, I recommend replacing the thermocouple or thermopile at the same time.

Restate your problem if the pilot won't stay lit or if it goes out when you turn the thermostat up.

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

Imperial gas fryer problem, when the burners are

You have a bad gas valve. It's not reading the signal from the thermostat. The gas valve is stuck open.
