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.

Deep fryer pilot light switches off automatically


First make sure that the thermocouple tube is directly in the pilot light flame. If it is, then the thermocouple is defective.

Flame rollout. Lit pilot turned thermostat on burners lit. Turned thermostat off for a few seconds and turned back on can hear gas but not lighting. If left alone it blows the door open and makes noise. I...


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.

I need to know how to lite the pilot on my frymaster fryer


fry099_16_4.gifMake sure the thermostat is turned off. Units burners will light as soon a pilot in it is on. fry099_16_5.gif 3-2 Lighting the Pilot and Burner Figure 1 Figure 2 3. Push the knob in and light the pilot. Continue to hold the knob in for about 60 seconds after the flame appears on the pilot. Release the knob. The pilot should remain lit.

I suggest that you boil it out before using. This cleans the pot of any contaminants here is how to do this.
Boiling Out the frypot To ensure that the frypot is free of any contamination resulting from its manufacture, shipping, and handling during installation, the frypot must be boiled out before first use. Frymaster recommends boiling out the frypot each time the oil or shortening is changed. 1. Before lighting the burner, close the frypot drain valve and fill the frypot with a mixture of cold water and boil-out solution or detergent. Fill to the lower oil-level line. 2. Light the fryer in accordance with the lighting instructions in Section 3.1. 3. Simmer the solution for one hour.
I would attempt to paste the complete owners manual but it's just way to large. I do warranty for Frymaster is how I have access to it. Good luck

Assuming that your make up air and exhaust hood are properly balanced, no negetive pressure conditions exist, your gas manifold pressure is at 4" wc, your air/gas mix on the burner set correctly, the your problem would be the pilot adjustment. If the flame is not intense enough flame to survive the sudden air shock, it will go out.

The pilot height should be about 1 1/2". Your Pilot orfice could also need cleaning. Eliminate excessive draft in your kitchen.

Here is the manual for your unit, it covers these topics.
