I assume it is a gas model. There are 2 thermostats. One is adjustable, you set your temp, it sounds like it has gone bad.. The second thermostat is the high limit thermostat. When it reaches 450 degrees F, it will shut down the pilot and main flame to prevent a grease fire. It may be possible that someone has hooked the thermostat up wrong. Next time you fire it up, disconnect one of the thermostat wires that has the temperature knob. If the flame goes out, the thermostat is bad,

B&S deep fryer heats up to set temp..like 170c, then pilot light turns off.try to relit,no good.if i wait10..20min.I can relit it.but when reach temp,flame goes out again.


The high limit is shutting the fryer off. It is auto reset and that is why the fryer works after waiting. It sounds like the thermostat is not shutting off and the high limit is kicking in. You need to check the actual temperature of the oil.

Our Imperia fryer pilot lights shuts of once the temp reaches 200 degrees


If both the main burner and pilot shut down at 200F, the high limit is bad. If only the main burners shut down, the thermostat is bad.

I start the pilot up... burners go on but once it reaches temperature the burners shut off and dont start up again????/ what could be the proble


Hi there.
Check the thermostat, it may have a mechanical defect (not closing contacts once it reaches the cut-in temperature).
If the pilot flame goes out with the burner flame once the ste temp is reached, your fryer may have problem with the hi-limit (premature tripping).
Regards.

Turkey fryer won't start


Yo! the Dang pan has to be filled and on the burner which makes contact with the auto shut off sensor that is measuring the temp of the pan. The weight of the filled pan holds that Lil temp sensor down and allows the gas to continuously flow as if you were holding that Lil red button. So after hours of trying to light it without the pan you should find that it does work with the filled pan on the burner holding the red button, stick a match in the hole and let the button go and watch the blue flames flow. My gripe now is that it shuts off after the oil temp reaches 250 to 260 degrees then you have to reignite. Oh yeah my 10lb Turkey was crazy tasty.

Seems like it shuts off when its gets to a certane temp have to relight pilot


Check if the oil temp does not reach 450F because if it does, it will trip the high limit device that will shut off the burner flame as well as the pilot flame. But if high limit device trips off prematurely (at temperature less than 450F) you have to replace it. Just make sure that its sensing bulb does not touch the fire tube.

Frymaster will not re-light after reaching temp on initial start


You have a lazy thermostat that needs replacing. Not uncommon.

I have a ef3 vulcan, when reaches temp, the pilot goes out.


Set the thermostat to 350 degrees,get a thermometer and put it in the oil,when the unit shuts off look at the temp of the oil.If the temp of the oil is higher then the thermostat is bad if not the hi-limit may be.Let me know.

Problems with fryer


your problem is the thermostat is bad.the reason it shuts down is that it trips the hi limit.the hi limit is a saftey device that shuts the system down so the oil doesnt get too hot and catch on fire.remove all the oil from the tank and you should see 2 skinny metal bulbs one is the hi limit bulb the other is the t-stat bulb,make sure they are secured to the bracket.if the t-stat bulb isnt you will also have this issue,simply reattach it.let me know.
