Hi, I am suposing that this fryer has worked good in this location before. If not, check to make sure it is set up right for your gas supply. (LP-Nat) There is something wrong with the gas - air flow in your unit. Look for obvious things first like exhaust being blocked, Flame dancing out side of fire area, Pilot too small, Build up of debris in fire box. The pilot should be able to be adjusted at the gas valve if it is too small. I believe you problem could be taken care of best with a good cleaning of the burner, fire box and pilot assemble. Make sure that all burner holes are clean especially around the pilot light. Check for oily debris inside the fire box to make sure its not leaking into the fire area. If you are unable to do this yourself, contact some one either in the restaurant equipment service business or heating and air conditioning business. Hope I have helped you. kstfas NOTE: If this answer does not rate at least 4 marks, (almost there) please do not rate. Thank You.

Are you sure that the fryer is not shutting off on high limit? The high limit switch will shut off the main burner and pilot as well. The high limit will trip if the thermostat is defective or if it is out of calibration and does not shut off the main burner when the set point is reached within normal operating limits. In either case the oil gets too hot, ~425F. Check the oill temperature when it shuts off. The high limit may also defective. Check for continuity between the high limit leads immediately after it shuts off. If the leads show no continuity at normal oil temperatures, the high limit is defective. The high limit will automatically reset when the oil cools down, so it must be checked immediately after shutdown.
There are other possibilities such as a weak pilot, weak thermopile, loose or damaged wiring or connectors, ect., but in these cases the fryer will often go out randomly, not just when the main burner shuts off.
