Pilot not stay on

This problem occurs when the pilot generator is not producing enough millivolts. The pilot can be on, but as soon as you turn on the thermostat the electrical load is increased and the safety magnet shuts off. This is usually caused by a weak pilot flame. If you remove the pilot orifice and clean it, that usually works.

Put a new valve in a imperial fryer pilot lights and stays lit but when i turn the t-stat on it shuts off

The reason is the pilot generator will hold the safety magnet but it won't operate the solenoid.
It is old and weak.Ain't putting out enough power to operate the solenoid. Get a new generator

Hi,i want to know wath is the oil's temperature when the deep fryer is off and if a can regulate the pilot? my deep fryer is a imperial fsi-50,thanks

I would guess about 120-150F for the oil. There is a screw under a cap on the gas valve that you can use to regulate the pilot, but this is not recommended. The flame must be high enough to heat the thermopile sufficiently so that the pilot will stay on and the main valve actuate. For better or worse, most gas fryers are designed to keep solid shortning in a liquid state when off and to safely melt it overnight. If you need the oiler cooler, say for filtering, I suggest just turning off the pilot.

Pilot light won't stay lit.

Make sure the pilot has a shield around it. Also check for drafts in the area.

Comercial deep fryer pilot light goes out

This problem could be caused by a few different things. You should check the condition of your pilot and the thermocouple, if the pilot is weak due to being dirty you will not generate the optimum Millivolts to run the fryer, you may need to dissassemble and clean the pilot. The thermocouple needs to be correctly placed in the pilot assembly, if it has dropped down to where it is not in the flame it will not work correctly. You may need a new thermopile as it may not be generating millivolts as needed. Gas pressure can cause this as well, if the pilot goes out then the main burners come on you should check the gas pressure. One more thing to check is the hi-limit thermostat, if this is cutting out early your pilot will go out. Imperial uses a self-resetting limit, after a few minutes your fryer will relight and work until if cuts out again. If your fryer pilot stay on with the thermostat off for long periods of time and does not go out immediately when the burners come on and the pilot is clean, you may need a hi limit. This is a lot of info, I hope it helps.

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!
