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.

SOURCE: gf 40 frymaster fryer

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.

SOURCE: problems with fryer

your problem is the thermostat is bad.the reason it shuts down is that it trips the hi limit.the hi limit is a saftey device that shuts the system down so the oil doesnt get too hot and catch on fire.remove all the oil from the tank and you should see 2 skinny metal bulbs one is the hi limit bulb the other is the t-stat bulb,make sure they are secured to the bracket.if the t-stat bulb isnt you will also have this issue,simply reattach it.let me know.

Hi there, try here and check your state, and pick a company close to you, they will either have the part you need, or can get it relatively quickly.

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.

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.

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.

A pitco frialator in a restaurant will operate for about 5-6 hours and then blow the pilot light and burner out. I have put a thermometer in the oil, watched it work and the oil temps wont exceed 375...

I assume that the thermometer you are using is calibrated. You have to check the continuity on the hi limit terminals once the pilot light shuts off. If it has no reading, the hi limit trips prematurely and it needs replacement.

Fryer does not shut off when temp .is reached

I assume it is a gas model. There are 2 thermostats. One is adjustable, you set your temp, it sounds like it has gone bad.. The second thermostat is the high limit thermostat. When it reaches 450 degrees F, it will shut down the pilot and main flame to prevent a grease fire. It may be possible that someone has hooked the thermostat up wrong. Next time you fire it up, disconnect one of the thermostat wires that has the temperature knob. If the flame goes out, the thermostat is bad,
