Sounds like you have a bad t-stat. You could take a reading through it when you turn the temp up to see if it is operating.

Why won't the pilot valve turn on my pitco 35C+ frialtor?


You turn the valve knob to "Pilot", push it in, and light it (use a long butane lighter-it's easiest) and keep the button pushed in for 20 seconds-1 minute. If the pilot stays lit, turn the dial to "On".

Pilot lights but will not light burners when range selector dial is turned on


Hi there.
Check and clean the thermopile, it must be free of soot or any form of dirt so that it can properly sense heat from the pilot flame and generate millivolt to open main valve to fire up main burners.

When pilot is lit and white dial is turned to ON, fryer will not ignite when the temp dial is turned from off to 350


Make sure the knob on the gas valve is turned to the ON position after lighting the pilot. If the fryer won't come on.... 1. The pilot flame may be weak causing low millivolts. 2. The thermostat is failing. 3. The pilot flame may be good but the pilot generator may be weak causing low millivolts. As this unit operates on less than 1 (one) volt DC.... you can try to jump the thermostat leads on the gas valve to see if it comes on. If it does... change the thermostat.

Pilot goes out when you turn up thermstat


The thermocouple, the part that is heated from pilot light and produce small electricity and is connected to the gas valve, is a small copper pipe wire, need to be replace since it can not enough electricity so to keep the electromagent on valve on when you try to turn up and the gas coming out from the burner is blowing out the pilot light.
So the most posible reason is to replace the thermocouple which is the cheapest part. Their is a very small chance that the gas valve is faulty but this depents how old the fryer is and how much have been work.

Honeywell propane relay won't start


For the pilot you have to hold the red button down for about a minute or two while it is lit, then turning it to on. If you tried this and it still wont stay lit then you can try replacing the thermocouple. For the relay the best way to tell is take voltage reading to see if the coil is getting voltage across it.relays are usually inexpensive,and easy to install.Just be sure to turn the power off befor touching the wires,and mark them so you know which wire goes to what terminal.

Lighting the fryer


If this is a milivolt unit, meaning no solid-state or computer/digital controlled. You would need to turn your gas valve to the pilot position, then press in and hold until you can light the pilot using a lighter (this may take several minutes, to bleed the air from gas supply) once there is a pilot flame present, you will need to hold the valve button in for about 45 seconds to heat the thermalpile. Once pilot is lit, thene turn to on position and proceeed to turning thermostate to set temp.

If your pilot lights up but the main burner doesn't light up then you have a bad pilot sensor or gas valve
