Question about Imperial IFS40 Deep Fryer
Bought a new thermopile because pilot wouldnt stay lit...Now pilot will light but when I turn it on and it reaches temp.(tested at 200'f) the burners shut down correctly but 1/2 second later so does the Pilot, almost as if a safety trips and you can't relight the pilot for an extended period of time afterwards...Checked for leaks and found none..help???
If the pilot shuts off within seconds of the burner, I strongly suspect you are having a problem with the hi-limit circuit. Check your wiring. The slightest unwanted grounding will cause the valve to drop out.
You also need to inspect the mounting of the bulb for the high limit. Make sure it isn't covered in debris. It should be clamped close, but not touching the heat exchanger. Grease needs to be able to flow on both sides of the bulb.
You'll need to test the switch with a meter or a jumper (for TESTING ONLY!). Remember, the hi-limit switch may be doing it's job and be the symptom, not the cause. But if the switch is tripping open prematurely, you'll need to replace it. (Part# 1177) Are you testing with enough oil in the vat?
