Two things to check. Make sure you have continuity through the terminals on the high limit. Also make sure you have a good pilot flame and the pilot generator is supplying over 500 millivolts. It's either the high limit or the generator.

Pilot light goes out after a few minutes it seems t b overheating! It's a pitco freestanding 35C+ gas fryer


Check the oil temp and see when the pilot goes out. Is the thermostat shutting off at the correct temperature ? A low pilot flame could also be causing low millivolts, which can cause a pilot drop out.

On a Royal mod.RFT-50 deep fryer,the pilot light lights but when I turn the temp knob to light the main burners i don't get the gas needed for lite up and the pilot goes almost out.


If you have a gas pressure regulator for the fryer, the leak limiter on it is probably clogged with grease. Replacements are available for a few dollars.

Flame rollout. Lit pilot turned thermostat on burners lit. Turned thermostat off for a few seconds and turned back on can hear gas but not lighting. If left alone it blows the door open and makes noise. I...


Hello There:- You have two problems here. 1. the gas rolls out caused by the blocked gas flue or your deep fryer chemney needs to be check out. 2. the unit door blows open caused by what we call this delay lighting, it is quite dangerous, you should check out the whole unit , the pilot light may be too small and not lighting up the main gas as it should and when it does it is too late too much gas in the chamber and blows out through the front door. Hope this help.

Pilot light goes out when burner turned on


Replace the pilot generator. You are not getting the millivolts you need when you turn on the fryer.

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.

Pilot light won't stay lit.


Ensure that gas is getting to the pilot , or you may have a devective pressure regulator.
If gas is getting to pilot and pilot is turning off, then you need to replace the thermocouple.
The thermocouple function is to turn off the gas if there is not enough temperature, so to prevent gas leaks if the pilot light goes off.
Near to the pilot light there should a part similar to a small metal tube directly in contact with the flame. Thermocouple is wired back to the gas valve.
When the pilot is on, and temperature is steady, the thermocouple will generate a small voltage that will keep the gas safety valve open. In case the pilot light goes off, the thermocouple will cause the valve to close. When you hold the pilot light button , the thermocouple will normally reach enough temp to keep valve open.
If the termocouple is faulty, it will turn off as soon as you release the igniter button.
Replacing thermocouple is an easy repair.

Call the number listed on the owners documentation to get the replacement part.

Comercial deep fryer pilot light goes out


This problem could be caused by a few different things. You should check the condition of your pilot and the thermocouple, if the pilot is weak due to being dirty you will not generate the optimum Millivolts to run the fryer, you may need to dissassemble and clean the pilot. The thermocouple needs to be correctly placed in the pilot assembly, if it has dropped down to where it is not in the flame it will not work correctly. You may need a new thermopile as it may not be generating millivolts as needed. Gas pressure can cause this as well, if the pilot goes out then the main burners come on you should check the gas pressure. One more thing to check is the hi-limit thermostat, if this is cutting out early your pilot will go out. Imperial uses a self-resetting limit, after a few minutes your fryer will relight and work until if cuts out again. If your fryer pilot stay on with the thermostat off for long periods of time and does not go out immediately when the burners come on and the pilot is clean, you may need a hi limit. This is a lot of info, I hope it helps.
