    Ty. I have been using this fryer for a couple of years. It was bought as and has run on lpg succesfully until now. An engineer told me that it sounds like the preasure is too low which may be a result of a faulty 2nd stage regulator. It would be interesting to find out your opinion. Thanks for getting back to me.

Check your manual and make sure your burner is configured for the gas that you are using. In most cases, there is an orifice that needs to be changed for using LP, or a screw setting that needs to be changed- most new appliances ship with a "city gas" configuration ( AKA NG - Natural Gas) and need to be configured for LPG (Liquified Propane Gas). The fitting(s) that need to be changed are tagged. This is due to the pressure difference between NG and LPG. Propane (LPG) runs at a higher pressure.
You state that your fryer is LPG. If you are running it on NG ("city gas") you need to consult your manual for converting it to NG. Outside of making sure that you are set up for the right gas, you should not have to make any other adjustments. For safety reasons, gas regulator pressure adjustments are for the most part no longer possible on gas appliances.

My lpg fryer IFS40 burns yellow flame and on the recent inspection tech supposedly found corroded heat exchanger. The fryer is only half a year old and still under warranty but the imperial only offer


The heat exchanger might be a result of the yellow flame but not the cause of it burning yellow. I would guess it is the amount of air being mixed with the gas. Most burners have a slotted metal air mixture ring on the front of the burner near the brass orfice, you are calling a jet. There is a locking screw to release the ring so it can turn to adjust the amount of air being mixed with the gas. If this doesn't fix the yellow flame it could be a gas pressure problem that could be the external regular in the gas line. Not sure if you are talking about the pilot flame or the burner flame or both? A tech should know how to adjust the air mixture.

Oven sounds like a jet engine


I can't help much...

When a gas burner sounds like a jet engine the chances are the gas is burning inside the mixing chamber.

The gas jet directs the gas into a mixing chamber where it is mixed with the correct quantity of air before being emitted from the burner where it produces those nice blue flames. Sometimes, for a reason I don't know, ignition will cause the flame front to pass through the holes in the burner into the mixing chamber and the jet engine sound is heard. There will still be some flames from the burner but they will be weak and anaemic.

The problem used to be very common in the days of coal gas but it has almost disappeared with the use of methane.

I suggest you remove the burner and ensure it is clean inside and out and is a good and close fit against the gas jet and there is nothing restricting the air inlet of the mixing chamber.

My uniflame has two burners and one does not ignite. Everything seems to be tight. What can I do to get this to ignite when turning ignition knob? Thanks!


When you say two burners, I believe you are referring to the pilot flame and the main burner. The pilot flame has to light and heat the thermocouple befoe the main burner will ignite. The pilot flame will not light if: there is not enough gas in the tank, the pilot jet is clogged, or the regulator is bad. Check the tank to make sure it has gas. The next thing to check is the pilot jet. You have to take the heater apart, somewhat, to get to the pilot jet. The tube and the orifice need to be cleaned out, compressed air in a can and a pipe cleaner make the job a little easier. If this does not work, replace the reglator and hose.

Range has electric igntion and it will not heat. the ignition and burner will cycle on intermittently then it would shut off. it would do this for 3 times. its a imperial convection oven IHR-4-C model. was...


It sounds like your ignition module is unable to prove flame for some reason. This could be caused by poor positioning of the flame sensor, a bad ground to the burner or to the ignition module. If the flame is not engulfing the flame sensor on the ignitor, the module will attempt to light three times and then lock out. Poor air flow or too much air flow through the burner compartment can blow the flame away from the ignitor as well. Hope this help

Soot build up


Flame is Orange? If so, propane is "choked", not enough air. Remove burners, clean each burner hole with a same size metal dowel (coat hanger works well) flush out inside of burner with garden hose, hi pressure air through all holes to dry. Replace burners ONLY after also cleaning chambers and chimney (garden hose and long brush). Do not forget to clean pilot light area too.
Most Imperials are pre-set air intake. Check gas pressure if able, 3" NG, 10" LPG. Good Luck
