Sounds like the pilot is dirty,if you have propane gas this is your issue,replace the pilot either way.

For sure if you got gas to the unit.The only thing to keep the pilot for working is hi limit,thermocouplen.One other thing is does this unit need power for it to work?

Is this fryer propane?It sounds like the baffles in the tank are clogged.If you remove a burner shine a light in the baffle,if you see alot of soot use a shop vac and clean it out.Let me know.

When the whole unit shuts down including the pilot light the thermocouple is not working properly. The thermocouple is what tells the gas safety valve that the pilot light is lighted. When the thermocouple fails and does not send the milli-volt (mv) signal to the gas safety valve due a failure the gas safety valve turns off the gas supply. (i.e total shut down)
If you have a handyman around you can have him disconnect the thermocouple from the gas valve control and clean the mating area in the gas valve and on the bitter end of the thermocouple. After cleaning then reconnect the thermocouple. This sometimes corrects the problem. FYI you can get a thermocouple at most any large appliance parts supply. (You will need to the know total length) It would be even better to have the old one in hand during the trip to the parts store.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Just making sure you did replace the Thermopile, not thermocouple. Unless it has an external power source. The thermopile creates the power for the valve to open and close. If the pilot flame is not hitting it correctly it will not produce the power needed to hold the valve open. I would look at the thermopile placement in the pilot flame. Good luck

My sg-14 pitco frialator heats fine for about an hour and then shuts off. I have to turn it on again, as it has shut down completly. I have replaced the main thermostat probe, but the problem continues,


Hi there.
Make sure that the gas pressure being fed to the unit is sufficient or meets the required pressure on nameplate.
Try to check the hi limit it it has continuity across the terminals (with wires removed during checking) when it shut down, if the hi limit has continuity across the terminals- it is good; if it has none- it is tripped so check the oil temperature, hi limit trips at temperature around 450F. Verify also the temperature setting and the thermostat calibration.
If the unit has thermopile, it should be free of soot or any form of dirt. All wiring connection must be tight.
For calibration procedure, wiring diagram and other troubleshooting references, you can visit http://www.pitco.com
Regards.

Hello i have a J5 lincat fryer and the pilot stays alight but the burners won't connect (light) have replaced the thermostat and the thermo couple but still no joy any ideas on this not sure what to do...


Check if there is 500 to 750 millivolts across the thermopile wires; thermopile generates 500 to 750 millivolts if properly heated to energize pilot and main valve solenoids of the gas valve for pilot and main burner operation. If the voltage across the thermopile is good and all wiring connections are ok, I think you have to replace the gas valve.
Regards.

Hello, I have a cecilware fryer that looks exactly the same as the FMB 40 model.I don't know the model # because all info has been previously scratched off the label.The pilot light won't stay lit to light...


PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO FIX THE PROBLEM YOURSELF. You should hire an authorized service company to evaluate and fix the fryer.

Cecilware had a well known problem with their thermopile F178A. There was a recall on it last year. There are a few that are still in the field. It's possible your fryer might have one installed in it.

Their website doesn't have the manual posted. You will need to call them. 800-695-4500
Good luck

Pilot light keeps going out! Will not stay Lit.


Check if the the gas pressure is sufficient (as stated on unit's nameplate). Check if the hi limit device is good. Check also if the thermopile (cylindrical metal with two wires standing behind the pilot hood) is receiving enough heat from the pilot flame. The voltage generated by thermopile should be 500millivolts in order to open pilot and main valve. If there is 500millivolt on gas valve thermopile and the pilot flame does not stay lit, you have to replace the gas valve. If the thermopile is glowing red and the voltage generated does not reach 500 millivots, you have to replace the thermopile.

We changed the thermostat in our unit and now the pilot lite won't stay lit!


You have to check the following:
1. Does the pilot flame has the ability to heat up the thermopile? Themopile must be properly heated in order to generate voltage to open the pilot valve as well as main valve.
2. When the thermolpile is heated, does it generates 500 millivolts? If not, your thermopile needs replacement. If it does and still the pilot flame wont stay lit, your gas valve needs replacement.
3. Does the hi limit device has continuity on its terminals? If there is no continuity on hi limit terminals, you have to replace it. One of the thermopile wire passes on this hi limit terminal to cut the voltage supply on pilot valve in case the oil temperature reaches 450F.
4. Check and tighten all wiring connections, millivolts generated by thermopile will not pass on loosely terminated wiring.

I have DCS FSF-40N fryer. the piolet doesn't stay on when I release my finger it goes off I tried to change the gas valve from different brand and I only replaced small part where the electrical wire is...


You must first check to see if your pilot flame is good. If it is too weak, or not impinging properly on the thermopile, it will not stay lit. If the pilot flame is ok, the problem could be that the thermopile is weak. using a millivolt meter, test the voltage across the thermopile while the pilot is lit (you may need someone to hold the button down while you do this). You will also need to disconnect the thermopile's leads from the control while you do this. You should get about 750 millivolts across the thermopile while the flame is on it (let it heat for a while to stabilize). If your reading is too low, your thermopile may be shot and needs to be replaced. That is of course only if your flame is proper. That voltage is needed (or close) to keep the magnet open so it will stay lit when you let the button go.

Pilot wont stay lit on my Imperial IFS 40 deep fryer


Hello. It sounds like your wiring is shorting or crossed for sure, or your gas valve has failed, but the pilot lights, and stays on, so good sign. If you hosed the hi-limit or the thermostat, these could short internally, and cause the pilot to drop out. Try this, disconnect the wiring going to the hi-limit ( control with the 3 screws ), and the thermostat, relight the pilot with only the thermopile connected to the gas valve, turn it to on, and see, if it stays, then a wiring problem, or component problem for sure. I see I cannot get a diagram from them, maybe you can call, and have them send you one. Let me know.

Hope that helped, and thank you.
