    So, you didn’t mention having to reset the high limit.  Therefore you have a gas or air supply problem supplying the pilot.


    It could be:

    • A dirty pilot burner
      • Turn off the pilot, then give the pilot burner a strong blast of compressed air, nitrogen or CO2.  Then relight it and see how it does.
    • An improperly adjusted pilot supply or weak thermopile
      • A VOM would be needed to establish either of these possibilities.  I don’t provide HOW-TO lessons, so if that’s beyond your scope, then call a service company.
    • Low gas pressure supply
      • If there’s a line regulator feeding your fryer, it may be bad.  A manometer is needed to test the pressure and see if that’s the problem. 
    • Insufficient gas supply volume
      • If the fryer is supplied by a flexible gas hose with a quick-disconnect, be sure the quick-disconnect is fully seated.
      • Also be sure the gas supply’s ball valve is turned on fully.  The valve’s handle should be IN-LINE with the valve’s body.  Turned at 90° is OFF.  anything IN-BETWEEN means it’s not turned on enough.


    That’s all I can think of at the moment.  I hope this helps.

    Now I’m going to have another beer and continue cooking my dinner.

    Loose electrical connections on the pilot curcuit.
