Pilot light will no ignite when I follow steps on door. What may be the problem ?


Defective thermocouple. If it pilot light goes out after letting go of the button, the thermocouple is not producing enough voltage to keep gas going to the pilot light. Heat on the thermocouple produces it own power. It is a safety feature to prevent the main gas from operating when there is no pilot light.

Why fryer heat up and than the gas shut off


If the pilot light goes off too, then the thermocouple is defective. Otherwise its the thermostat or heat overload protector trips due to excessive temperatures.

I have got lincat fryer j10 the pilot won't stay


Hi there.
Make sure that the thermopile is receiving enough heat from the pilot and if it does, check if the hi limit is good, check and tighten also all of the wiring connections, before replacing the gas valve.

Trying to light the pilot light on deep fryer when i push button in it lights but when i let go of button pilot light goes out what am i doing wrong


If the pilot flame does not hold after releasing the button for at least 20 to 30 seconds, try to clean the thermopile and tighten all wiring connection on gas valve, thermostat and hi limit the repeat the process. The thermopile must be heated by pilot flame in order for it to generate small amount of voltage to open the pilot valve.
If this does not correct the problem, try replacing the thermopile.

When the pilot light button is released the flame goes out. (pitco propane fryer) - unsure of model number as data plate is worn. Does the thermopile need replacing ?


Try first to clean the thermopile. If it has accumulated soot/ carbon, it will not sense enough heat from the pilot flame to generate small amount of electricity to energize the pilot valve and main valve of gas valve.

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.

How to fix a gas fryer trouble to get it on.


It is either the gas valve or the piece that the pilot light heats up. After the pilot light gets so hot it heats the copper tube looking thing up and then that goes to a little box that kicks a little switch and lets the power through to the gas valve which then opens and ignites the burner. You can check for continuity on the 2 poles on the switch when it gets hot.

Hobart deep fryer, light pilot heats to temp then all goes out?


You will need someone who is qualified in commercial gas appliance repair to fix this.
Liabilities would render this out of reach for anyone else.
