Try to check if the thermopile is receiving enough heat from pilot flame and is free from dirt or carbon deposit. If not so, try to make adjustments or clean the thermopile.

Why won't the pilot valve turn on my pitco 35C+ frialtor?


You turn the valve knob to "Pilot", push it in, and light it (use a long butane lighter-it's easiest) and keep the button pushed in for 20 seconds-1 minute. If the pilot stays lit, turn the dial to "On".

Pitco fryer ignitor lights the pilot but goes out after we let go


Are you holding it in long enough? It takes between 20 seconds-1 minute.

If it still doesn't stay lit, replace the thermocouple.

13 year old pitco frialator fryer pilot wont stay on. changed gas valve and thermopile.... pilot light wont stay lite


Hi there.
Check and tighten all wiring connections.
Check the hi limit for continuity across the terminals using an ohm meter, if it has no continuity, you have to replace the hi limit.
Regards.

Pilot light does not stay on


Hi there.
Try cleaning the thermopile, it must be free of soot or any form of dirt. Ensure that the gas pressure is sufficient, all wiring connections are tight and the hi limit is good.
If all of these are okay and the pilot still wont stay lit, try replacing the thermopile.

My pitco frialator fryer's pilate wont stay lit


Check the thermopile, it should be free of soot or any form of dirt. Pilot flame quality must be good. Gas pressure should meet the requirement as stated on the nameplate.

Pilot is off.


Most fryers have pilot lighting instructions on the inside of the door. If yours doesn't then find the gas valve, turn the knob to the pilot position, push in on the knob and light the pilot. Keep the knob pushed in after you lite the pilot for at least another 30 seconds. The pilot should stay lit.

Hello I have a Pitco Frialator 35CD Deep Fryer and as of one day ago, when I turn the wheel to turn the fire on (the wheel with the various temperatures) nothing happens? How do I fix it?


Assuming that the pilot is lit, when you turn the thermostat from off to the operating temperature, you should hear a click at some point. If you do not, the thermostat is defective. You can also double check this by detaching one of the two wires going to the thermostat and measuring for continuity between the two terminals. At off it should show no continuity. At 200F or above it should show continuity. This is the most common problem.

If the pilot will not stay lit or if it goes out when you increase the thermostat setting, it is usually a defective or weak thermopile (or thermocouple), or a defective gas valve. If replacing the gas valve, I recommend replacing the thermocouple or thermopile at the same time.

Restate your problem if the pilot won't stay lit or if it goes out when you turn the thermostat up.

Pilot light won't stay lit


Wrong voltage thermocouple? must have 400mv, residential uses 25-40mv.
