Question about Vulcan EF3 Deep Fryer
The main burner on the fryer sometimes will not light, and sometimes when it does, it goes out before the grease gets up to the proper temperature. There is no problem with the pilot light. When the t-stat is turned up it makes a clicking sound as if it is working properly, but usually the main burner does not come on. Please advise.
Before replacing any parts,clean out the pilot,burner orfices and burners.if this doesnt solve your problem replace the thermopile.call 18884hobart and get the parts dept.tell them you need a thermopile for the model of your fryer.95% of the time the t-pile goes bad.theres also the hilimit in the unit that kills the gas if the fryer gets too hot but i dont think thats the problem.also check all wiring connections to the gas valve (clean and free of grease).drain the oil in the tank and youll see 2 bulbs ones the thermostat bulb the others the hilimit bulb.make sure their secured to the bracket.
