Hi there.
Try to clean the thermopile (a cylindrical metal standing behind the pilot) by wiping it with a scrubbing pad to remove carbon or any form of dirt. The thermopile generates a small amount of electricity to energize pilot valve and main valve of the gas valve for pilot and burner operation. The electricity generated by the thermopile depends on the heat it absorbs from the pilot flame.
Regards.

I assume this is a natural gas fryer....Are your jets clean? That is an issue sometimes, and those are the small holes that your flames come out of....Is your gas line clogged anywhere....? I don't sell Dean fryers, not too impressed by that brand, as they leak quite often, and then Dean won't honor their warranty program....so I'm not as familiar with their products, however on some brands, the thermostat dial itself should not be turned to the holding temperature until after it lights and is fully on...Do you turn it to say 350 degrees right away or wait for it to light before selecting your temperature? Thermostats themselves going bad is the number one issue with fryers, so it could be that. To clean out the burner jets, we use a compressor and blow them out clean...You can also use a small brush or skewer to clean them out. I would eliminate everything you can that has no costs involved first, and then move to parts that you have to purchase. If you need a thermostat, I could get you a price on Monday... Our toll free number is 888-542-5959, Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, Ohio. We would need the brand/model number and serial if you have it also. Our service tech who specializes in gas products is off Monday, but there are other people there who can help and get you pricing on parts. I won't be in until after lunch myself Monday, but check out what you can, and if nothing works, then call us on Mon or Tues next week.
Everything is closed up until Monday, so we can't order or get pricing over the week-end. Good luck, hope this helps.

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!

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.

Pilot light goes out when burner turned on


Replace the pilot generator. You are not getting the millivolts you need when you turn on the fryer.

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.
