Check the vent hole (plastic plug, not the screw) on the regulator between your gas line & the back of the fryer. If it is plugged, it wont fire & the pilot will go out when thermo-stat makes up to turn on.
Thank you.

Pilot light won't stay lit after releasing when lighting gas fryer


This symptom indicates something wrong with the millivolt system. Start by checking the wires from the thermopile to the gas valve, insuring they are all tight and in place. Check the hi limit thermostat, if you have an ohm meter it should read .1 or .2 across it. With you meter set to dc millivolts, and flame present on the pilot, read across the thermocouple wires (red and white) to see the millivolts generated, with the thermostat off and the gas valve in pilot position you should get approx 600 millivolt plus minus 50. The pilot will have to be on for a minute or so to get maximum millivolts. If the millivolts are correct, hi-limit closed, and all wiring is connected, you likely have a faulty gas valve. If the hi limit reads more than .1 or .2 replace the limit, if you are not getting the millivolts from the thermopile, replace it.

Hello,I have a Imperial IFS deep fryer S#06301407 .We had a pinhole repaired in tank.I know that tank was removed prior to repair .Unit did work fine other than leak before tank repair.After lighting pilot...


You can use a jumper wire to test the valve. The voltage is LESS than 1 volt so do not worry. Imperial fryers usually use a robershaw gas valve. the 2 outside terminals...left and right.... are where the thermostat connects. Using a jumper wire after the pilot is lit will tell you if the valve is good or if it's the thermostat. You can also use a multimeter and check the continuity of the thermostat.

Pilot wont stay lit on my Imperial IFS 40 deep fryer


Hello. It sounds like your wiring is shorting or crossed for sure, or your gas valve has failed, but the pilot lights, and stays on, so good sign. If you hosed the hi-limit or the thermostat, these could short internally, and cause the pilot to drop out. Try this, disconnect the wiring going to the hi-limit ( control with the 3 screws ), and the thermostat, relight the pilot with only the thermopile connected to the gas valve, turn it to on, and see, if it stays, then a wiring problem, or component problem for sure. I see I cannot get a diagram from them, maybe you can call, and have them send you one. Let me know.

Hope that helped, and thank you.

Fryer IFS 40. Burner not getting on.


If the pilot light stays lit then there is no problem with the thermocouple. What you have is a problem with the thermostat or the gas valve operator. try jumping the thermostat wires and see if the gas comes on. If so simply replace the thermostat.

Imperial fryer IFS-40


I had a very simular problem. My fryer would do exactly as you described, but sometimes the pilot light would stay on until the burners tried to re-ignite and then it would go out.
I finally had to call the gas company. They took the pilot light apart and cleaned it. The fryer works perfect now.
Hope this helps!
