Question about Imperial IFS40 Deep Fryer
Ensure that gas is getting to the pilot , or you may have a devective pressure regulator.
If gas is getting to pilot and pilot is turning off, then you need to replace the thermocouple.
The thermocouple function is to turn off the gas if there is not enough temperature, so to prevent gas leaks if the pilot light goes off.
Near to the pilot light there should a part similar to a small metal tube directly in contact with the flame. Thermocouple is wired back to the gas valve.
When the pilot is on, and temperature is steady, the thermocouple will generate a small voltage that will keep the gas safety valve open. In case the pilot light goes off, the thermocouple will cause the valve to close. When you hold the pilot light button , the thermocouple will normally reach enough temp to keep valve open.
If the termocouple is faulty, it will turn off as soon as you release the igniter button.
Replacing thermocouple is an easy repair.
Call the number listed on the owners documentation to get the replacement part.

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
