Heat the thermocouple and check the voltage that is coming from it 10- 15 milli volt is ok for termopile it must be about 500 milli V
if it is working the solnoide broken and u have to change the gas valve.
be sure that all connection are right and tight before other check

Hi there, Im wondering how to get a new pilot light part for my pitco fryer. Or will it take other brand Pilot lights? Cheers


It is usually best to use the same parts for the fryer but most of the time they are what you would call a generic part that is used by many. If you have a pilot that will fit it should work. But like I said it is best for optimum performance to use OEM parts or same model parts.

Pilot light will not stay lit once pilot button is not depressed. Replaced thermopile already. Any suggestions? Also don't have milivolt detector. Thanks


Hi there.
Check the wiring, loose wiring terminals can disrupt the current going to gas valve.
Try also to connect jumper wire across the hi limit terminals, if this do the trick, replace the hi limit device before operating the fryer.
Lastly, the gas valve may be defective.
Regards.

I light the pilot everything is fine then when i go to turn thermostat on pilot light goes small and burners dont light and when i turn back to pilot the gas ignites and goes out


Sometimes certain models turn off if you touch the thermostat before it lites...
We've seen this happen many times, so you would need to light the fryer first, wait until it's stable before turning your thermostat to desired temperature.

Trying to light the pilot light on deep fryer when i push button in it lights but when i let go of button pilot light goes out what am i doing wrong


If the pilot flame does not hold after releasing the button for at least 20 to 30 seconds, try to clean the thermopile and tighten all wiring connection on gas valve, thermostat and hi limit the repeat the process. The thermopile must be heated by pilot flame in order for it to generate small amount of voltage to open the pilot valve.
If this does not correct the problem, try replacing the thermopile.

I have a pitco 35c fryer the pilot light will light but the flame is very low it goes out when i release the controll the pilot light adjustment has no effect on flame i have the right amount of fuel...


Check and clean the thermopile, it is the cylindrical piece of metal standing behind the pilot assembly.Try also to tighten its wiring connections to the gas valve and high limit.If it does not correct the problem, replace the thermopile.

Fryer comes on gets to temperature, then after a varied amount of time depending on use will power down, and will not come back on to maintain temperature, or will occasionally come on, but not to desired ...


Hi there.
Thermopile must be free of soot or any form of dirt so that it coud absorb the right intensity of heat from the pilot flame for millivolt generation used in energizing the pilot and main valve electrical coils for pilot and burner operation. Pilot flame must be stable during fryer operation as well as the gas pressure being supplied to the unit.
All wiring connection must be tight, a very small amount of voltage generated by the thermopile or millivolts will not pass thru loosely connected wires.
Regards.

Comercial deep fryer pilot light goes out


This problem could be caused by a few different things. You should check the condition of your pilot and the thermocouple, if the pilot is weak due to being dirty you will not generate the optimum Millivolts to run the fryer, you may need to dissassemble and clean the pilot. The thermocouple needs to be correctly placed in the pilot assembly, if it has dropped down to where it is not in the flame it will not work correctly. You may need a new thermopile as it may not be generating millivolts as needed. Gas pressure can cause this as well, if the pilot goes out then the main burners come on you should check the gas pressure. One more thing to check is the hi-limit thermostat, if this is cutting out early your pilot will go out. Imperial uses a self-resetting limit, after a few minutes your fryer will relight and work until if cuts out again. If your fryer pilot stay on with the thermostat off for long periods of time and does not go out immediately when the burners come on and the pilot is clean, you may need a hi limit. This is a lot of info, I hope it helps.
