Question about Keating Instant Recovery 14CMG Deep Fryer
Hard to light, onxe we light the pilot and try to start the pre burners it blows out most of the time, when we do get them to lite it takes a long time for main the 4 main burners to egnite, when they do they will only burn for 3 minutes or so and then everything goes out. This is an older unit, with 4 main burners, instant recovery. We just bought it used.
Check the thermopile impingement from the pilot flame. Is the pilot yellow and soft? If the unit was sitting for a long time the pilot assembly may have debris in it. If the pilot is not strong the draft caused by the main burners in operation will cause the pilot flame to move away from the thermopile causing the ASO to drop out. Try using some compressed air around the pilot assembly or use a mechanical air pump on pilot assembly tubing to try and clear pilot. Also a plugged regulator vent can cause pressure problems. Check appliance regulator vent screen/hole is not plugged with grease or debris.

Testimonial: "flame is blue but 1/3 inch high at best, unit sat for a few years, would think if it lit once, it would clear out the junk?"
You might want to see about getting your money back or swapping it for another. I'm guessing it is a natural gas model. If so check and make sure you have between 4 and 5 water columm gas pressure. If so I would start by checking the thermopile and make sure it's producing around 700 milivolts. If your not able to measure this or have the tools to do so, I would start by replacing the thermopile. (This is not a thermocouple.)If this does not fix the problem. You have a bad gas valve. Thermopile cost around $60.00. Gas valve runs around $30000You can go this web site for more info http://www.tmeinc.biz/xkeat.htm
