    somehow my text did'nt go through, sorry for that but this is a pic of a thermocouple which yours may be, or a thermopyle which the sensing bulb will be around 3 mm larger. It connects from the gas valve to the bracket of the end or output side of the pilot tube. These costs around 5 to 10 dollars at most hardware stores you will need to measure the length of the exsisting thermo device as this is critical in placement. If you have any other question on this please re comment.



    Hope this helps you

I am not sure what what model number I have, but when I try to light this older Vulcan deep fryer it doesn't light at all nor do I smell any propane. It's as if it's not getting any gas.


This is our number one issue with gas fryers... Not being able to get the unit lite.... Normally our service techs tell our customers they are not holding down the pilot light button long enough. The sensors in there take some time to get hot enough to send a signal to the pilot telling it to light... If you need someone to walk you through it, call Ray at 888-542-5959, at Restaurant Equipment Outlet.

13 year old pitco frialator fryer pilot wont stay on. changed gas valve and thermopile.... pilot light wont stay lite


Hi there.
Check and tighten all wiring connections.
Check the hi limit for continuity across the terminals using an ohm meter, if it has no continuity, you have to replace the hi limit.
Regards.

Pilot won't lite. fryer is 6 months old. Did get pilot to lite once and as soon as we turned thermostat pilot went out.


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.

Light pilot on Royal deep fryer. Pilot will not stay lit. Second fryer has larger pilot have no trouble keeping it lit. How can I adjust the pilot so that it will stay lit?


there is a small adjustment screw on the gas valve,turn it clockwise to increase pilot,if that does not work the vent cap on the gas regulator on the back of the unit could be stopped up,remove that cap ,clean out or replace unit can operate without it just fine.If you increase the pilot and it still wont stay lit replace the thermocouple

Watermark Grille pilot prob


Your question is posted under vulcan fryers but the comment refers to a grill. Either way, I think your problem is gas pressure and/or supply related. You may need a new regulator, you valve may not be open all the way or any quick couplings you may have are not coupled completely or are faulty. What is happening is there is enough pressure to keep the pilot going, but when the larger route for the burner gas is opened the gas is quickly used up without proper resupply. A regulator installed backwards can have this same effect. Hope this helps

Wont come on


low gas pressure to unit must check and see if gas valve in back of unit is fully on or same for regulator if there is one if the gas valve is open and the unit has a regulator ajust regulator regulator with center screw clockwise all the way down this will give you more pressure
