When you turned on the thermostat you required more millivolts from the system and it failed. Low millivolts. That would tell you the pilot generator needs replacing. Make sure you have a good pilot flame hitting the pilot generator.

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.

My pilot light won't stay lite,replace thermopile and still doesn't stay lite.


Hi there.
Check for wiring errors, fix and tighten all wiring connections. Make sure that the gas pressure is correct.
Check the hi limit and gas valve, one of those component may be bad.
Regards.

Pilot lites & burners come on but they go off within 1 minute


Try cleaning where gas passes through the opening where oxygen mixes. This happens on mine every six months or so. One other problem could be your thermostat.

Deep fryer wll not ligth


Frequently customers do not hold the pilot "lite" button down long enough for the fryer to light. We normally instruct them to hold the pilot lite button in for some time, then light it, and after it lights, turn thermostat back to your regular setting. People get alarmed that they have to hold the button in as long as they do, but that is what it takes to light these units up, so hold it in longer, then light. Once we give these instructions, they normally do not call back in, and manage to light it ok Good luck to you, Susan REO

I light the pilot everything is fine then when i go to turn thermostat on pilot light goes small and burners dont light and when i turn back to pilot the gas ignites and goes out


Sometimes certain models turn off if you touch the thermostat before it lites...
We've seen this happen many times, so you would need to light the fryer first, wait until it's stable before turning your thermostat to desired temperature.

Pilot will lite,but burners will not lite when you turn the thermo. up


Make sure gas valve is in the ON position after lighting the pilot. Try jumping the thermostat terminals together to see if burner comes on. Three things could cause this problem 1. bad operator on gas valve 2.low millivolts 3. thermostat not functioning
