This is caused by a failing pilot safty bypass inside the gas valve itself. You will need to replace the gas valve.

Pilot lights only while depressing knob. Once knob is released to turn to on position the pilot goes out. Bad thermalpile?


It can take a up to a minute for the thermocouple to get hot enough to latch, the flame is to low, not in the position to hit the thermocouple or just bad. Some valves need to be turned to the ON position after lighting the pilot and waiting for the thermocouple to get hot. Sometimes the nut that holds the tube to the valve comes loose and requires being tightened but not to tight.

Check if the unit receives the right amount of fuel as stated on its nameplate, if it does, check all wires for loose connections, Milli volt wont pass on loose wiring. If this does not correct the problem, you have to replace the gas valve, the main valve coil may be shorted that's why the pilot is shut when main valve is energized.

My pilot won't stay on i've tried several times.


Your problem is easy and frequent. The pilot light should heat up the thermouple which in return by the heat will keep the valve on for pilot light first and the burner light.

So either the pilot light is not reaching the thermocouple - this only if someone moves the pilot light

Or the thermocouple became weak and can hold the gas valve open - so replace the thermocouple with new one.

There is a very small possibility that the gas valve is faulty but you should replace the thermocouple in any case which is very cheap first and is the most possible cause.

I have a gas fryer (pitco) that has no electric running to it,why does it have wires running from the thermocoupling


The thermopile on gas operated equipment acts as small voltage generator when heated that energizes the pilot valve and main valve of the gas valve,. Without it, you will not be able to fire up your fryer.

Pitco rtg 14 gas pilot goes out


Sounds to me the thermopile (thermocouple) is at fault, it's a safety device to detect if the pilot flame is alight or not. If the pilot should go out for any reason, the thermopile will detect this & shutdown the gas valve (ie the unit will cease to operate).
A new thermopile should solve your problem. It's not a task I would attempt yourself if you are in any doubt.

Pilot light won't stay lit.


Ensure that gas is getting to the pilot , or you may have a devective pressure regulator.
If gas is getting to pilot and pilot is turning off, then you need to replace the thermocouple.
The thermocouple function is to turn off the gas if there is not enough temperature, so to prevent gas leaks if the pilot light goes off.
Near to the pilot light there should a part similar to a small metal tube directly in contact with the flame. Thermocouple is wired back to the gas valve.
When the pilot is on, and temperature is steady, the thermocouple will generate a small voltage that will keep the gas safety valve open. In case the pilot light goes off, the thermocouple will cause the valve to close. When you hold the pilot light button , the thermocouple will normally reach enough temp to keep valve open.
If the termocouple is faulty, it will turn off as soon as you release the igniter button.
Replacing thermocouple is an easy repair.

Call the number listed on the owners documentation to get the replacement part.

Pilot light will not stay lit


You can not check a thermocouple by resistence. You have to check it by millivoltage when it is hot and sensing it should be above 500mv. I would be willing to bet that you have some type of particulate in the gas valve that is causing this problem.

Pitco fryer pilot out


if you changed the thermopile and still have the same problem make sure that the sensing bulb is directly over the flame. If it is and the thermopile is installed correctly the next thing would be the gas valve.

Hope this helps
