Make sure that the pilot flame is making direct contact with the thermocouple. You may want to try to use a lighter to provide direct heat to the thermocouple and when you push the pilot reset button you should be able to feel it grab when releasing the button(it may take a minute or two). If the ASO still does not hold after applying direct heat to the thermocouple and you have good pilot/thermocouple impingment it could be the thermocouple. Usually fryers of this type use a standard thermocouple but some systems involve a pilot generator. If it is not the thermocouple it can then be a bad mag head(not very common) and will require a new gas control assembly from frymaster.

Pilot goes off as soon as I release the button


You need to hold the button down for about 3 mins. If it goes out after that long the thermocouple is probably bad. Look at how long the wire is from the pilot light to the gas valve. They come in different lengths.

Pilot light ok when release finger pilot goes out


Your thermo couple is bad. Thats the copper tube that goes from the gas valve to the pilot. It senses thats the pilot is lit. Thats not working thats why it goes out. You can get a new one at lowes or home depot for about ten bucks its pretty easy to change just dont kink it when you put it in. It will just plug in at the pilot and screw in at at gas valve.

Williams heater model 3509612


Hold the button for 30 seconds, then release. If it goes out right away, you have a bad thermocouple. If the unit does not sense that the pilot light is lit, all of the gas is shut off, including the pilot light.

Pilot wont light


If the pilot light goes out when you release the primer,then the thermocouple is bad.You can try to adjust the thermocouple,if it can be.It needs to be in the pilot flame.If the thermocouple is not in the flame,it will not stay lit.If you can not get the pilot to light at all,with the primer pushed down,then replace the regulator.To light the pilot light,you need to turn the dial to pilot.Then press the primer button down and hold it.The primer is either built into the turn knob,or it is a res button.Hold the primer down,and light the pilot,continue holding the primer down for at least 40 seconds.Then release the primer slowly,and if the pilot light starts to get weak,and try to go out,then push back down,and hold 30 seconds more.After the pilot stays lit,turn the knob to furnace or low,or whatever the directions say.

Light pilot light


Turn control knob to "Pilot" and press it down. While holding knob down, light pilot with a match. After pilot lights continue to hold knob down for about one minute. When you release the knob the pilot should remain on. If it goes out then the thermocouple needs to be replaced.
