Firstly make sure the gas knob is exactly in the pilot mode some are finiky and won't light unless in exactly the right postion. Make sure once lit when pushing down on the pilot knob that you hold it down long enough for the thermocouple to sense the pilot. Barring both of those the most likley culprit is the thermocouple itself is faulty and can easily be removed usally with a couple of screws and a small adjustable wrench.

Procom pilot light wont light

Make sure the gas valve is on. The thermocouple may need to be cleaned in order for the pilot to stay lit.

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

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.
