Why does the transformer get hot and burn up?

The only thing that would cause this is something in the circuit is pulling too much electricity through that transformer. So what is the transformer hooked to? Please post the make and model

Pilot light wont stay lit

Can I first ask you to be more specific to what the pilot light is in. A Furnace. Stove or hot water heater.
Please furnish at least the name and model of the device so that I can better answer your question.

How can i get my polit lit on my vulcan deep fryer this is the serial number.4810034077yp thanks for your help

You don't say what model this is...but on gas fryers the number one reason it doesn't light, is that people don't hold the switch down long enough. There is a safety on there, and it has to be held down long enough for the sensor to tell the fryer to light. Our service tech, Ray, walks people through this all the time, and they generally are just not holding the button down long enough. Call him if you like and he can walk you through it... Ray @ 888-542-5959, Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, Ohio... We can order parts too if you need them and/or we do sell new/used equipment and smallwares. Thanks, Susan REO

Hello, I have a cecilware fryer that looks exactly the same as the FMB 40 model.I don't know the model # because all info has been previously scratched off the label.The pilot light won't stay lit to light...

PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO FIX THE PROBLEM YOURSELF. You should hire an authorized service company to evaluate and fix the fryer.

Cecilware had a well known problem with their thermopile F178A. There was a recall on it last year. There are a few that are still in the field. It's possible your fryer might have one installed in it.

Their website doesn't have the manual posted. You will need to call them. 800-695-4500
Good luck

Pilot wont stay lit

If it will not stay lit from a cold start, you will need a thermopile. You can check it if you have a DC meter that will test milivolts. It should be putting out between 300 and 500. If it will not stay lit after the pot gets hot, you will most likely need a high limit. Try pushing the red button below the thermostat. This will reset the high limit.

Pilot light will not stay lit

You can not check a thermocouple by resistence. You have to check it by millivoltage when it is hot and sensing it should be above 500mv. I would be willing to bet that you have some type of particulate in the gas valve that is causing this problem.

What parts did you replace to do the conversion? Make sure all your wire connections are correct (hi-limit/thermostat/thermocouple connections).I repair these fryers if you need more advise let me know.

Heater won't stay lit

use a 45 caliber pistol (colt prefferably) make sure it is dicannected, then empty pistol into heater making sure all vital aprts are obliterated. Then go down and buy a new one.

No heat

1st I would check any safety switches it may have such as oil drain valve switch controlled by the oil drain valve. If it has an exhaust blower, it may have to get up to a certain speed before the flame will come on. This would be a vacuum type switch. If it has a pilot light that burns all the time, it probably has a thermocouple which the pilot light heeps hot. This could also be the problem and need replaced. If there is no resturant equipment service tech in your area, A air cond tech would be your best bet for troubleshooting it. Good luck.
