Sounds like the regulator is out of sync. You have to be sure the gas isn't flowing too quickly. There are two gas burner nozzles - one is for house natural gas the other for a propane set up. Be sure this is the correct one and the correct regulated pressure. hi

If the pressure is TOO MUCH it will blow the flame out before it starts. Check the flame as you attempt to start it - does it blow out or does it just go out? moz-screenshot-2.png
In closing I think it is your regulator that needs attention.
Best of it

Hi i have a new imperial fryer and im tring to light it and cant seem to get it to work. any idea on how to get it working?


Have a lighter handy (I use one of the elongated ones for caravaners)
in-between the burners is a pilot light (top right) keep the lighter flame where the gas comes out.
On the right hand side of the fryer at the bottom is a gas valve with a little black knob.
Press and hold the black knob in and gas will come out of the pilot light and ignite by the lighter flame. You need to hold the button in for quite a while. (until it stays lit)
When it stays lit depress the little black knob and turn it anti clockwise. Gas comes out of the burners and ignites from the pilot light. When it reaches temp. it will cut out.
To turn it off turn the little black knob clockwise. To turn the pilot light off, push and turn clockwise.

We r trying to start our fryers.. we were given them and to assistance to start them.. These are gas and we don't have the model number


On the gas valve there is a knob that has 3 positions...ON/OFF/PILOT. Put the knob in the pilot position and push the knob in and light the pilot while keeping the knob pushed in. After about 30 seconds let go and the pilot should stay on. Then turn the knob to the ON position and set the thermostat.

How do you re-light pilot light


Turn the knob on the gas valve to the pilot position. Sometimes you have to slightly depress the knob to turn it..don't use a pair of pliers. In the pilot position.. push the knob in and light the pilot..keeping the knob pushed in for 30 seconds. Let go and the pilot should stay on. Turn the knob to the on position and set the thermostat.

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

Pilot is off.


Most fryers have pilot lighting instructions on the inside of the door. If yours doesn't then find the gas valve, turn the knob to the pilot position, push in on the knob and light the pilot. Keep the knob pushed in after you lite the pilot for at least another 30 seconds. The pilot should stay lit.

I have a 3 burner pitco gas friolator and dont know how to light the pilot any suggestions


First, never light when the pot is empty, you can fill with water if you have no oil. Open the door, check the thermostat and make sure it is turned off.(The burners will light if thermostat is on) Behind the thermostat you will see the gas valve. Turn knob to off, then to pilot. There is a notch at the pilot position. Now look up in the middle behind the burners and you will see the pilot assembly. Push in on the knob on the gas valve while you hold a long lighter close to the pilot assembly. Once the pilot lights keep holding the pilot knob in for 20 seconds. Now let off the pilot knob. Pilot should stay burning. Now turn the gas valve from pilot to on. Now turn the thermostat to desired temp and the burners will fire off and start heating.

I cant find the way on how to light uo the friar.


If you have a pitco 35 fryer, all you need to do is have gas connected and turned on, rotate the know on the gas valve to the pilot position, depress the knob, while holding the knob down light the pilot, normally located in between the burner tubes in the middle of the front of the fryer, hold the knob for 60 seconds, when you release the pilot should remain on. If it does rotate the pilot know to the "on" position, from this point the thermostat should control the fryer. If your pilot does not stat lit, press the red button on the hi-limit to reset it, it could be tripped and this would cause the pilot to not hold. Hope this is helpful.

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.
