The thermopile on gas operated equipment acts as small voltage generator when heated that energizes the pilot valve and main valve of the gas valve,. Without it, you will not be able to fire up your fryer.

My pitco fryer SFSG18 will not light it has spark but does not seem to be getting gas when trying to light


Have you tried inspecting/replacing the thermocouple? This is the thing you heat when initially lighting the pilot.

You may also have a stuck pressure valve, but that is unusual.

Check if the unit receives the right amount of fuel as stated on its nameplate, if it does, check all wires for loose connections, Milli volt wont pass on loose wiring. If this does not correct the problem, you have to replace the gas valve, the main valve coil may be shorted that's why the pilot is shut when main valve is energized.

This is caused by a failing pilot safty bypass inside the gas valve itself. You will need to replace the gas valve.

Pitco fryer pilot out


if you changed the thermopile and still have the same problem make sure that the sensing bulb is directly over the flame. If it is and the thermopile is installed correctly the next thing would be the gas valve.

Hope this helps
