My wife and I volunteer at our local Little League. My wife also serves on the board and runs the small and neglected concession stand. They have a deep fat fryer that doesn't work properly and needs to be repaired. The brand name is Imperial and the fryer has two vats, one small and one large. It's the large vat that doesn't work and shuts off after cooking just one batch of French fries. The strange thing is that the pilot light also goes out. I troubleshooted the fryer tonight and had it working. I thought that my wife was turning the temperature up too high which would cause the high-limit switch to turn the fryer off. The concession stand has lost lots of money because they can't fry anything like corn dogs or mozzarella sticks, only french fries.
If anyone has experience with fryers please help. It's the kids who lose out and I'm sorry this hasn't been fixed sooner. Thanks!
