If the pilot won't light, the first thing to try is to replace the thermopile, assuming you have a good flame on the top portion of the thermopile in the first place when you hold the gas valve in when in the pilot position. If this does not solve the problem, which in 90% of the cases it will, the gas valve is defective. I usually replace the thermopile when replacing the gas valve and save the old one for a backup.

I'm getting a lot of soot from my propane fired fryer. Otherwise works well.


The burner flames must be BLUE. Yellow flames will produce soot. Sounds like the burner orifice size needs to be checked.

Hi there. Flames rolling back instead of shooting inside the fire tubes can be a result of clogged fire tubes or air entering the flue, also check if there are objects blocking the flue. Regards.

I am trying to switch a natural gas deep fryer to propane and cannot fimd the correct part


Hi there.
You can visit http://www.imperialrange.com , you can verify there the correct parts list for the model of your fryer for the conversion from natural to propane and you will be able to search there the nearest authorized parts and service provider in your area.
You will be needing burner orifice for propane, pilot orifice for propane (if available, if not, the whole pilot assembly), Gas valve spring for propane (if available, if not, the whole gas valve for propane).
Regards.
