Hi there. Hi limit may be tripping off due to high oil temperature (power supplying the gas valve is connected in series with the hi limit). Verify if the thermostat is not shorted, also please check the thermostat calibration if it is good.
Regards.

Pilot lite working. When temp switch turn up to 365 you can here a click but gas burners do not light. Sometimes when you turn the switch back and forth the burners will light and bring oil to temp. and shut off but as oil cools burners do not come back on.

SOURCE: pilot shutting off once temp reached

Hello. It is hard to say exactly what is going on, but here it goes. First, are you sure it is getting to temp? use a thermometer. if so, then, you could have a weak hi limit, tripping at 350 or 375, instead of 450. Do you have to reset it? or let it cool down? or does it light right back up. If not, then you probably have a weak thermopile, not producing the correct millivoltage ( less than half of a AAA battery ), it normally is 450 to 750 millivolts.You can test this with a multimeter, one side to the thick copper wire coming from the pilot, and the other at one of the hi-limit wires, DC voltage please. Grease could be on/in any of the aforementioned components, causing a poor connection, with less than half an AAA battery, it does not take much to cause a problem. A dirty pilot, or low gas pressure could also cause a problem.

Hope that helped, and thank you.

SOURCE: 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.

Our Imperia fryer pilot lights shuts of once the temp reaches 200 degrees

If both the main burner and pilot shut down at 200F, the high limit is bad. If only the main burners shut down, the thermostat is bad.

I start the pilot up... burners go on but once it reaches temperature the burners shut off and dont start up again????/ what could be the proble

Hi there.
Check the thermostat, it may have a mechanical defect (not closing contacts once it reaches the cut-in temperature).
If the pilot flame goes out with the burner flame once the ste temp is reached, your fryer may have problem with the hi-limit (premature tripping).
Regards.

Seems like it shuts off when its gets to a certane temp have to relight pilot

Check if the oil temp does not reach 450F because if it does, it will trip the high limit device that will shut off the burner flame as well as the pilot flame. But if high limit device trips off prematurely (at temperature less than 450F) you have to replace it. Just make sure that its sensing bulb does not touch the fire tube.

Flame goes off when temp. reaches 250 degrees, use to stay on 350 degrees without problems an them started acting up and won't reach that temp any more, disconnect the pilot automaticly

Hi limit device trips prematurely (should only trip when oil temp reaches 450F). Check if the hi limit sensing bulb (located inside the fryer tank, between fire tubes) is not touching the fire tube because if it does, it will sense the heat from burner flame which is much higher than oil temp.

Hobart deep fryer, light pilot heats to temp then all goes out?

You will need someone who is qualified in commercial gas appliance repair to fix this.
Liabilities would render this out of reach for anyone else.

Pilot goes out when fryer reaches set temp. and shuts-off.

try to change the thermal battery the device that the pilot heats.. other wise there is a screw at the botton of the automatic valve.. try to increase the pilot so it can heat more the thermal battery! u dont have enough voltage to activate the solenoid valve so thats why ur pilot goes off

Imperial fryer IFS-40

I had a very simular problem. My fryer would do exactly as you described, but sometimes the pilot light would stay on until the burners tried to re-ignite and then it would go out.
I finally had to call the gas company. They took the pilot light apart and cleaned it. The fryer works perfect now.
Hope this helps!

If your pilot lights up but the main burner doesn't light up then you have a bad pilot sensor or gas valve
