Could be a bad thermostat, or gas valve, either one....If either is bad, that could be an issue....As long as it lites ok, I would probably start with the thermostat...This is natural gas, correct? If it's electric, there could be other issues, but since you don't mention brand, gas or electric, it's hard to guess? I really need more info, but on electric models there is also a high limit switch, and if that goes bad, you could have this problem as well. Sometimes resetting that switch does the trick, but if it's gas....then I would try the thermostat first....

Pilot light won't turn off

I have an imperial fryer. Pilot is on but main burners don't ignite. Pilot looks normal & thermostat clicks when turned


Number 5 is your thermopile/pilot generator. It is a pilot generator that does 2 things. It holds open the valve with a safety magnet and it operates the safety valve solenoid whenever the control stat calls for heat. Overtime they get weak and will hold the pilot but not operate the valve solenoid. I would replace that pilot generator.thermopile and party on!

Put a new valve in a imperial fryer pilot lights and stays lit but when i turn the t-stat on it shuts off


The reason is the pilot generator will hold the safety magnet but it won't operate the solenoid.
It is old and weak.Ain't putting out enough power to operate the solenoid. Get a new generator

Pilot light goes out


Two things to check. Make sure you have continuity through the terminals on the high limit. Also make sure you have a good pilot flame and the pilot generator is supplying over 500 millivolts. It's either the high limit or the generator.

Pilot won't lite. fryer is 6 months old. Did get pilot to lite once and as soon as we turned thermostat pilot went out.


When you turned on the thermostat you required more millivolts from the system and it failed. Low millivolts. That would tell you the pilot generator needs replacing. Make sure you have a good pilot flame hitting the pilot generator.

Pilot goes out when you turn up thermstat


The thermocouple, the part that is heated from pilot light and produce small electricity and is connected to the gas valve, is a small copper pipe wire, need to be replace since it can not enough electricity so to keep the electromagent on valve on when you try to turn up and the gas coming out from the burner is blowing out the pilot light.
So the most posible reason is to replace the thermocouple which is the cheapest part. Their is a very small chance that the gas valve is faulty but this depents how old the fryer is and how much have been work.

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.
