This is the cause of a faulty thermostat. You may also want to consider replacing the high limit as well if it has tripped more than a few times.

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.

How can you tell if the pitco fryer safety switch is bad


The safety switch is operated by extremely high temperatures. If the safety switch is bad, it will not shut off at extremely high temperatures.

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.

Fryer overflows often, turned thermostat down from 350 to approx 340 but food does not cook then. could the thermostat be bad? 10 degrees should not make that much difference.


Does the fryer have a" temperature reached light"? If so switch the fryer on and with the thermostat dial starting at its lowest setting increase the temperature setting in small increments. When the light indicates temperature reached, increase the thermostat dial temperature. Continue until maximum temperature reached.

If (starting from cold) the temerature reached light only shows when high up on the thermostats temperature scale, then unfortunately the thermostat needs replacing.

Hope this helps.

Fryer does not shut off when temp .is reached


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,

Pilot light


Assuming that your make up air and exhaust hood are properly balanced, no negetive pressure conditions exist, your gas manifold pressure is at 4" wc, your air/gas mix on the burner set correctly, the your problem would be the pilot adjustment. If the flame is not intense enough flame to survive the sudden air shock, it will go out.

The pilot height should be about 1 1/2". Your Pilot orfice could also need cleaning. Eliminate excessive draft in your kitchen.

Here is the manual for your unit, it covers these topics.
