Try to spray wd40 on knob.
If spraying wd40 doesn't work, you have to replace the gas valve.

I have a sg14s pitco fryer. Gas valve was bad so i installed new one. Pilot lights fine but when you put gas valve in the on position burners immediatly lights. What is my problem? Thermostat and limit...

Hi there!
When you turn the gas valve knob to "on" position, burners should not fire-up if the thermostat is "off", if it does, the thermostat's mechanical contacts inside may be shorted (will not be able to control temp anymore) and must be replaced with a good one>
Regards.

Lighting pilot light

Pilot assembly is located inside the bottom compartment, between the the two middle burners while the gas valve is located under the burner manifold. Make sure that the gas line where the unit is connected is open. You need to turn the gas valve knob to "Pilot" position and depress it (to allow the gas to flow on pilot) then light the pilot assembly using a lighter with extended nozzle ( burner igniter). Once the flame is present at the pilot assembly, wait for about 15 seconds (allowing thermopile to heat up) the gradually release the gas valve knob. If the pilot flame is stable, turn the gas valve knob to "ON" position and set the thermostat to desired temperature setting. This will ignite the burners and heat up the oil to set temperature. Just remember, do not do this if there is no oil on fry tank.

Pilot light works but gas wont turn on.with temp guage turned up?

Check if you have turned the gas valve knob to "on" position after lighting up the pilot. If so check for the continuity of the thermostat terminals using an ohm meter. If the thermostat is good, try replacing the thermopile, if it does not correct the problem, try replacing the gas valve. Make sure that the unit receives sufficient gas pressure and volume before doing part replacements.

We r trying to start our fryers.. we were given them and to assistance to start them.. These are gas and we don't have the model number

On the gas valve there is a knob that has 3 positions...ON/OFF/PILOT. Put the knob in the pilot position and push the knob in and light the pilot while keeping the knob pushed in. After about 30 seconds let go and the pilot should stay on. Then turn the knob to the ON position and set the thermostat.

When pilot is lit and white dial is turned to ON, fryer will not ignite when the temp dial is turned from off to 350

Make sure the knob on the gas valve is turned to the ON position after lighting the pilot. If the fryer won't come on.... 1. The pilot flame may be weak causing low millivolts. 2. The thermostat is failing. 3. The pilot flame may be good but the pilot generator may be weak causing low millivolts. As this unit operates on less than 1 (one) volt DC.... you can try to jump the thermostat leads on the gas valve to see if it comes on. If it does... change the thermostat.

I cant find the way on how to light uo the friar.

If you have a pitco 35 fryer, all you need to do is have gas connected and turned on, rotate the know on the gas valve to the pilot position, depress the knob, while holding the knob down light the pilot, normally located in between the burner tubes in the middle of the front of the fryer, hold the knob for 60 seconds, when you release the pilot should remain on. If it does rotate the pilot know to the "on" position, from this point the thermostat should control the fryer. If your pilot does not stat lit, press the red button on the hi-limit to reset it, it could be tripped and this would cause the pilot to not hold. Hope this is helpful.

Lighting the fryer

If this is a milivolt unit, meaning no solid-state or computer/digital controlled. You would need to turn your gas valve to the pilot position, then press in and hold until you can light the pilot using a lighter (this may take several minutes, to bleed the air from gas supply) once there is a pilot flame present, you will need to hold the valve button in for about 45 seconds to heat the thermalpile. Once pilot is lit, thene turn to on position and proceeed to turning thermostate to set temp.
