If this is a milivolt unit, meaning no solid-state or computer/digital controlled. You would need to turn your gas valve to the pilot position, then press in and hold until you can light the pilot using a lighter (this may take several minutes, to bleed the air from gas supply) once there is a pilot flame present, you will need to hold the valve button in for about 45 seconds to heat the thermalpile. Once pilot is lit, thene turn to on position and proceeed to turning thermostate to set temp.

Check if the gas valve knob is set at "ON" position after lighting the pilot. Check also it the thermopile is receiving enough heat from pilot flame and try also to tighten all wiring connections on gas valve, thermostat and hi limit. If these do not seem to correct the problem, you have to replace the thermopile.
Check if you have turned the gas valve knob to "on" position after lighting up the pilot. If so check for the continuity of the thermostat terminals using an ohm meter. If the thermostat is good, try replacing the thermopile, if it does not correct the problem, try replacing the gas valve. Make sure that the unit receives sufficient gas pressure and volume before doing part replacements.
Hello There:- You have two problems here. 1. the gas rolls out caused by the blocked gas flue or your deep fryer chemney needs to be check out. 2. the unit door blows open caused by what we call this delay lighting, it is quite dangerous, you should check out the whole unit , the pilot light may be too small and not lighting up the main gas as it should and when it does it is too late too much gas in the chamber and blows out through the front door. Hope this help.
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.
Sounds like the burners are dirty remove burners and run under cold water and replace propane gas burns dirty and might have blocked up burners creating a pop at the burners this will then blow out pilot light if this does not work give me a shout
