That knob is a pilot safty valve it is not your problem. Your problem is the m/v signal generator. This is either a thermocouple or a thermopile depending on the setup of your model. Look for a small copper line coming from the pilot area going to the pilot safty valve that is the tcouple or tpile. Replace this and I am sure you will be good to go.

Hope this helps Ya

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.

Need to know where to light pilot


Normally, it's under the fryer, inside the door...The issue almost always is you have to press the button down long enough for the sensor to tell the fryer to light....There are 3 or 4 burners in the bottom of the frypot on top and under the fryer is the pilot to light these all up...Look for the gas valve, turn the gas valve to pilot, and press and hold it down, put flame to pilot and release button when flame is self standing... Then turn to on position. If you have other issues, call the Vulcan company themselves, and they will help you further.... Susan Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cinc, Oh www.restaurantequipmentinc.com

The pilot lights ok,the burners light,but after sometimes 5 to 10 minutes later both will go out


The gas for both passes thru the FMDA Safety Valve - in you case it's defective and must be replaced. You can find it here

Label says propane, needs to run on natural gas.


You need to change the gas valve,burner orfices,pilot and maybe a gas regulator.I service these fryers often as im a hobart tech.Goto hobartcorp.com,type in your model and the parts list.Any ? let me know.

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.
