Question about Imperial IFS40 Deep Fryer

1 Answer

Imperial 40 ignites but does not extend flames into heating tubes. Burns only fron

After flame is ignited by pilot light, it seems the intense flames sre only concentrated at front of frialator. The stainless steel edge above the pilot seems to burn too hot and the heating tubes are without any flames of heat. therefore, the frying oil is not being evenly or properly heated. Please help.

It sounds like your gas line either is clogged or your heating tubes are clogged up with oil/dirt/gunk? You can blow these out with a small hand held compressor or if you have a small enough brush, you can use that to clean it. The compressor is the quickest way, but have you cleaned this unit at all? Using a fryer boil out and running the fryer will also help clean out your holes, but again, the compressor works best.

8" yellow flame shooting out of ignition tube when running. No adjustments that I can see on the (Honeywell) gas cut off/pilot valve.


yellow flame is an indication of incorrect air mixture
as it is gas I would suggest that you seek the services of an accredited gas specialists to do any adjustments or repairs

The pilot light ignites but goes out when the button is released, I have held it down for over a minute, can you help


The pilot light works with a safety cut out device should the flame ever get blown out. The device cuts the gas supply to stop accidents. If you look where the pilot light burns you will see a small metal looking tip in the flame, this is the device. It is full of liquid:that expands when the flame keeps it hot. The other end applies pressure on the cut out switch. The liquid within can fail. It is very easy to follow the tube to the cutout switch, unscrew the whole tube assembly and take to a hardware store for a cheap replqcement that you screw back in. Any excess tube carefully wind up in a coil, do not bend sharply as liquid will excape (liquid usually oil based) Once refitted ignite per instructions for your device. Happy fixing.

Furnace and pilot will not stay lit


The tube is gas supply for pilot. You have to make sure the thermocouple is in the flame at least half way and make sure its tight in the gas valve. There should be a small silver plug on the gas valve near the pilot supply tube. You can pop the cap and adjust the height of the pilot flame a little. Can you tell if it has a flame rod in or above the flame? If it does You can remove it and clean it with steel wool.

Totai heater wont stay on after lit


Without a pilot flame sensor signal the pilot light will not stay on and the heater won't work. Try Replacing the pilot flame sensor, the pilot flame burns on to it and it connects to the valve. It looks like a wire.

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.

Burners not burning, pilot light is off. How do I start the pilot light?


There is no pilot on this unit. It is electronic ignition.

On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

I have a Maytag gas over/stove, Model number MGR5755QDW. The broiler heats, but the oven does not. What are the possible causes and how do I troubleshoot?


If you are having problems with the oven, the first thing to do is figure out if you have a pilot light system or a glow bar system.
Problems with the pilot light system.....The flame has gone out, re-light the pilot. The pilot flame will not light - possible oven control is not sending gas for the pilot light. The pilot light works but no main burner ignition - possible pilot assembly is dirty and the pilot flame is too small, safety valve and thermocouple is faulty, the bulb from the safety valve is out of position and the pilot flame is not touching the thermocouple bulb. Some ranges use a standing pilot light ( small flame is on all the time ) while others use an spark ignition to light the pilot light flame and the pilot light flame heats up the thermocouple bulb to allow the main gas to flow through the oven burner.
The flame needs to heat the bulb up enough to tell it to open the gas valve. Several things can go wrong here that keep this from happening:
The pilot flame may not be hot enough, usually because the flame is yellow instead of pure blue or is too small. The cause for this is usually a dirty pilot assembly. The pilot assembly would either need to be cleaned or replaced.The thermocouple bulb may not be positioned properly in the flame. You can't heat the bulb properly if it's not in the pilot flame! The thermocouple bulb needs to be in the upper third of a pure blue pilot flame--that's the hottest part of the flame.
The thermocouple itself may be burned out. It happens. It's a internal part of the gas valve so, no, you can't just change the thermocouple bulb separate from the gas valve.
But when you turn on the oven or the thermostat calls for heat, the pilot flame gets bigger and jumps down so it can heat up the thermocouple bulb. This extra gas to increase the pilot flame size comes from the thermostat.
If the pilot flame jumps upwards or just gets bigger, but doesn't shoot down, then you need to replace the pilot assembly.If the pilot flame size does not increase or jump down when turning on the oven thermostat, then the problem is the thermostat not sending enough gas to the pilot assembly. It's also possible that the pilot gas supply tube has a hole in it somewhere.
One final point on the spark-assisted pilot ignition systems. The spark comes from the spark module--the same module that sends spark to your surface burners to light them up. If you're not getting a spark when you turn the oven on, then there are several possibilities:
There could be a problem with the switch in the thermostat. You can confirm this by doing a simple continuity test of the thermostat contacts. If you don't read zero ohms when you turn the switch on, replace the thermostat.The spark module could be bad. You'll need to measure the voltage at the oven terminals of the spark module when you turn on the oven. If you get 120v but no spark, it's probably a bad spark module. Replace it.
Could be a bad spark wire or broken electrode.
Problems with the glow bar system.....You may even see the orange "glow plug" (called a hot surface igniter) glowing orange and so assume that it's OK. Not necessarily!! You have to measure the current/amp drawn by the igniter and compare it to this repair sheet before you can say it's OK or not. The gas valve has a bi-metal that open when a certain amount of current flows through it to heat it up. The igniter is wired in series with the gas valve. As the igniter gets older or weaker, it's resistance increases to the point where not enough current is flowing to the gas valve bimetal to open it up. As a result, the gas valve never opens up. BTW, a common symptom of the early stages of this problem is erratic temperature control in the oven due to delayed firing of the bake burner while cooking.
The hot surface igniter will not come on - check igniter with a ohm meter, you should have continuity through the glow bar, the glow bar can also crack = new igniter time. The glow bar comes on but the main burner will not light - you should have an amp probe to check properly, but often this is a hot surface igniter problem. The hot surface igniter often looses it's ability to get hot enough to open the gas safety valve. The safety valve can fail, but most times it is just a bad hot surface igniter. The hot surface igniter can also quit part way through cooking , in other words the oven may cycle a couple of times and then it just sits there with the red glow from the igniter. See this service sheet for the proper way and amp readings for the hot surface igniter system. Hot surface igniters do weaken and will eventually generate less heat than they normally could. When this happens they can still allow marginally correct current to flow to the oven gas valve for it to open but not get quite hot enough to ignite the gas burner immediately. When this happens, gas released into the oven can sometimes build up to the point where when finally ignited, the amount of gas lit can cause a small explosion inside the oven or cause an odor of gas with out the oven working. Yes, your glow bar igniter can glow orange-red and still be bad!! How a common gas valve works -click here.

Delayed ignition of a Ruud high efficiency upflow 90 plus propane


It sounds like the first thing to do is have burners and pilot cleaned and adjusted so ignitor and pilot flame is close to main burner ignition rail.

The "whoosh" is due to delayed ignition because the pilot flame does not come in contact with main gas.

One more thing that should be tested is the gas pressure and combustable air mixture to be sure it is correct.

It is always best to have a qualified technician do this for you, In many areas the gas supplier with check and safety test this for you.

Imperial IFS50


Hi, Probably the thermocouple. It will be right at the pilot light and hooks to the gas valve. The pilot heats it up to tell the gas valve that the pilot is working. If this is an electronic ignition, It will be the flame sensor still close to the pilot and will need cleaned or replaced. Hope this helps.
