Question about The Kitchen Appliances - Others
In order to build pressure, you need to first make sure that you have enough product to generate enough steam to build pressure. In a Model 1800 you need about 5-6 pieces of chicken or the equivalent to build a sufficient amount of pressure. You also have to have enough heat to create the steam, so check the oil temperature with a thermometer to make sure the actual temperature of the oil is close to the set temperature. If you have enough product at the proper temperature but no pressure is being generated, you need to determine where the steam is escaping. If the steam is escaping around the cover, replace the cover o-ring. If the steam is escaping from the exhaust stack in the back right corner of the unit, then your pressure regulating valve needs to be cleaned or rebuilt. The pressure regulating valve is mounted to the front of the cooking well just below the countertop. If the unit is several years old you should go ahead and get the rebuild kit for it.

SOURCE: im having problems with my Model 1800 broaster. The pilot light goes out once in awhile. But, sometimes when the Heat light is on the burner is not burning but the pilot light is on. It will just stop
If the problems are as you describe, they are actually two separate problems and aren't related. If your unit was manufactured before 1999, it has a standing pilot that should stay lit all the time. If it is just droppiing out intermittently, check the J-Block circuit. That is the two wires that connect between the Hi Limit and a brass adaptor that the pilot burner thermocouple is plugged into. These are some fairly fine wires that as the unit ages become brittle. It is lilkely that they are making intermittent contact, which is causing the pilot to drop out.
If your burner is occasionally quitting when the pilot is still lit and the Heat On light is still on, you need to check the voltage from the control panel to the gas valve (assuming this is a solid state controlled unit). If the 120V is still present, the gas valve is at fault. If the 120V is not present (and the Heat On light is definitely on) then the controller is at fault. If this unit has a mechanical thermostat and timer, then the only cause for the burner dropping out while the Heat On light is on is either a bad gas valve or intermittent electrical connection between the gas valve and the thermostat.
