Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
The unit wasnt getting gas to the pilot. I took it apart to check if it was clogged and found it was cleaner then hell inside. I put it back together and turned to the pilot position and without pushing the pilot you could hear gas going to the pilot. I lit it and turner it to the on position but when I did that the pilot stayed on and there were three little flames on the gas pipe at the bottom but there was no huge flame that appears on the other 2 fryers i have. i dont know any terminalogy for fryers but i know its not carrying the gas up the three things to create a huge flame to start boiling. can anyone tell me whats wrong. thanks a lot.
A gas valve is actually 2 valves in one. The first is your pilot valve, when the pilot is lit, the flame heats a thermocouple or thermopile & that heat produces a millivolt signal that is sent to main gas valve( second part) & tells it that pilot is established and to open to allow main burners to light. The 3 "little flames" were coming from the orfices on the burner manifold. If you are absolutely sure you put the gas valve back in the same direction as it came out (arrow on bottom of valve pointing to the fryer/burners) & any springs or adjustment screws were not mucked with, then there is a malfunction in the gas valve. It needs to be replaced.
