Hi there.
Check the gas pressure and gas type being fed to the unit if they are correct, low gas pressure will result in poor flame quality which will in turn produce carbon or soot inside the fire tubes.
Check also the condition of the fire tubes inside, they should be free of carbon or soot deposit.
Regards.

Oil pressure is normal until it reaches200 degrees then oil presure drops to 10 pounds at an idle but give it gas and it goes up when its first started oil pressure is at 40 pounds until it reaches 200...


Oil pressure drop after reaching operating temp is normally caused by worn main bearings (depending on mileage).Worn bearings will allow pressure drop at idle and increase when accelerated above idle.

My flame keeps on going out on my turkey fryer it has a heat sensor on it how do i position the sensor so the flame doesnt go out


The heat sensor for your turkey fryer is preset to 375 degrees F. Once the oil reaches that temperature, the sensor turns the flame OFF, so that the oil will not boil over and ignite. Once the oil cools to 325 degrees F, the burner can be relighted . Use extreme caution when relighting the burner. Altering or repositioning the heat sensor would make the fryer unsafe to operate.

I'm sorry. I which I had better news for you. Always, err on the side of caution & safety when dealing with open gas flames.

Want to know what the knob at the bottom left corner does? It looks like it opens a air vent. This is for a Majestic fireplace. Model no. 18103269 about 21years old. New home owner.


It may be similar to the Dutch West wood burning stove. The air from two front inlet flap opennings at the left and right of the glass door direct air upward and then inward at the top of the flame. This is intended to swirl the flame back so that it actually revolves in there before coming back and up the hole up into the top mounted reaction chamber where the platinum particles in the fiberous ring cause a catalyst type reaction of unburned gas. The main damper has to be closed to do this. You have to watch the flame to make it happen with the adjustment and the fire has to be up to about 350 degrees F. Because you are now making the flame roll around in there you will find the whole unit starts to snap with more heat output and if you use a magnetic KEL stovepipe thermometer it will shoot up to 420 degrees in 15 seconds so be ready to reduce the air to control your fire. Anything above 450 F. is dangerous, uses too much fuel and might send flames up to the creosote in the chimney. A clean chimney is fairly safe but the stainless steel ones with mineral asbestos lining by SELKIRK CANADA are the best as they will allow a fair number of seconds of CREOSOTE BURN which is kind of dangerous and can spit flame balls on to your roof, burning up cedar shake roof material before you can get up there with a garden hose and extinguisher.

Flame goes off when temp. reaches 250 degrees, use to stay on 350 degrees without problems an them started acting up and won't reach that temp any more, disconnect the pilot automaticly


Hi limit device trips prematurely (should only trip when oil temp reaches 450F). Check if the hi limit sensing bulb (located inside the fryer tank, between fire tubes) is not touching the fire tube because if it does, it will sense the heat from burner flame which is much higher than oil temp.

IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO REACH 350 DEGREES ON MY JGB920 GE STOVE


most likely you have a bad ignitor,remove the racks,remove the floor to the oven,remove the flame spreader,put the oven on 350,if the flame doesn't lite within 40 seconds you have a bad ignitor.i looked up your model number,it shows a round ignitor but when i look up the part number it shows a flat ignitor,call your local parts store,give them the full model number that's on the machine,open the bottom draw,look at the left or right side of the frame around the draw opening not on the draw and you'll see the model and serial numbers,give them the full model number and they will give you the correct ignitor,let me know how long it takes before the flame lites

High limit kicks out fryer and pilot light can


Since you've mention the pilot light goes out at 400 degree F, then we are talking a gas Deep Fryer. The deepfryer usually use at 350 degree F for chips or else. Because the oil will start breaking down its quantity of frying very quickly over that temperature. Most people set at 350 degree F. Now we comes back to your problem, First you should have a deep fryer thermometer they espcially made for deep fryer, (You only mention 400 or better ) that make me think you're only guessing. Knowing the temperature is very important, most Hi limit is set at 420 degree F.
To me it seen the Hi Ltd control is working and that is why it cutting out the pilot when it reach its limit but we don't know what temperature that when the hi limit cutting out at.
When you have a thermometer, put it in the cold oil and turn the temperature to 100 degree F to see what the temperature control cutting out at. slowly increase your setting until it cutting out at 350 degree F . If you set at 250 degree F and the thermometer already reaching 350 degreen F then don't go any further , your temperature control is defective and need to be change a new one.
This is only the first step, you still have to check out the Hi ltd control to see how good its condition is,so far your information say it cutting out at 400 or better. But you've to be sure, because it is a safety control. Hope that will help you , God Bless.

My Kitchen Aid Supuerba top covection oven will heat to set temp 350-400 then drop over 100 degree's but still read on digital display 350 or 400


how do you know it is dropping 100 degrees ?
If the set temperature is 350-400 the heaters will work untill the thermostat will read that the temperature is reached - after that the heaters will shut down and the temperature will drop...and after few minutes when the temperature goes below thw set point (in this case 350-400) the heaters will turn on again - this will happen for the duration of the timing you have selected (example 45 minutes)
