Why does my fryer says shorted probe


You need to replace the thermostat probe. That probe controls your heat and prevents it from over heating or not heating so if its out it has no way of being able to do so so it stays off. I couldn't find part but call manufacturer and provide serial number and they will get you everything you need and even help with any small questions.

With thermostat off still lets gas thru


Either the thermostat or the gas valve has failed. Locate and disconnect one of the wires going to the thermostat, if unit continues to heat the gas valve has failed, if not, the thermostat is likely stuck closed (on).

My sg-14 pitco frialator heats fine for about an hour and then shuts off. I have to turn it on again, as it has shut down completly. I have replaced the main thermostat probe, but the problem continues,


Hi there.
Make sure that the gas pressure being fed to the unit is sufficient or meets the required pressure on nameplate.
Try to check the hi limit it it has continuity across the terminals (with wires removed during checking) when it shut down, if the hi limit has continuity across the terminals- it is good; if it has none- it is tripped so check the oil temperature, hi limit trips at temperature around 450F. Verify also the temperature setting and the thermostat calibration.
If the unit has thermopile, it should be free of soot or any form of dirt. All wiring connection must be tight.
For calibration procedure, wiring diagram and other troubleshooting references, you can visit http://www.pitco.com
Regards.

The pilot light doesnt stay on to light the fryer... is there anything i can do? it is a lincat twin gas fryer....


Hi and welcome to FixYa. Most of the time this is as simple as changing the thermocouple. Any Appliance parts source will most likely have one that will fit your unit. (GAS VALVE OFF) It is a matter or unscrewing the thermocouple nut from the gas valve and then un-mounting the thermocouple probe end to change it out.

Take your OLD thermocouple with you to your LOCAL Appliance parts source so they can match the total length. Heating and Air-conditioning stores may have the thermocouple but your going to pay up to purchase a thermocouple from them. Same goes for restaurant equipment sources! $$$

Just make sure before you reinstall the new probe assy that your clean / wipe out the gas valve hole where the thermocouple nut mates to the gas valve very well. The probe works via micro volts and any dirt / corrosion / debris can affect the way the probe operates.

After changing out the thermocouple everything should work normally again. If not then the gas valve itself has a problem (highly unlikely) In the future if you need detailed info please pass your units model number in your response.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hi actually i have a cifs40 deep gas fryer and recently i change the control thermostat,now when turn the pilot on ,after 15 second the pilot stay on,but when turn the control valve knob to on position...


Hi, from the above question, the problem is not with ht thermostat but with the control board. The control board fails to hold onto power when the device is heated up, that why it goes off automatically..

Take care

Imperial cif 40 single tank bouble basket deep gas fryer


When the whole unit shuts down including the pilot light the thermocouple is not working properly. The thermocouple is what tells the gas safety valve that the pilot light is lighted. When the thermocouple fails and does not send the milli-volt (mv) signal to the gas safety valve due a failure the gas safety valve turns off the gas supply. (i.e total shut down)
If you have a handyman around you can have him disconnect the thermocouple from the gas valve control and clean the mating area in the gas valve and on the bitter end of the thermocouple. After cleaning then reconnect the thermocouple. This sometimes corrects the problem. FYI you can get a thermocouple at most any large appliance parts supply. (You will need to the know total length) It would be even better to have the old one in hand during the trip to the parts store.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Fryer not starting


I'm suspecting one of the following causes:

1. The thermo couple/thermo pile
2. Gas valve sticking, intermittant operation, doesn't snap open when required all the time. THIS CAN ONLY BE PROVED WITH A MANOMETER and specialized meter that can measure thermocouple or thermoppile current, and volt meter.

I've worked on many a McDonalds Frymaster beeping fryers that intermittantly go into ignition failure that TURNS OUT TO BE THE ACTUAL GAS VALVE FAILING TO SNAP OPEN, and hang only once in a while. Gas valves are only good for so many operations, once that has been reached start failing. The indicator you gave, IT WAS USED BEFORE YOU GOT IT makes me believe it is your gas valve!

ps: manual for your unit

Looking for a thermostat unit for the Imperial IFS-40 serie : 05159306 what's the part number??


If you have a manual thermostat,(inside door, knob) your part is

#1175 OPERATING THERMOSTAT (HERMETICALLY SEALED REED SWITCH)

If you need the Hi-limit t-stat --

#1177 HI-LIMIT SWITCH

If you have digital control, with digital temperature control, the unit uses a probe.

#1094 FRYER CONTROLLER TEMPERATURE PROBE

Good luck, Mike
