Ok, so here goes, I have recently recieved my Gas 2 license and am still green, but I have years in refrigeration and consider myself quite competant in troubleshooting from the electrical side of things, but as I have only done heating in heat pump applications, many components are still new to me, only really having dealt with them in small amounts at school. A friend of a friend asked me to have a look at a gas fired rotisserie at his restaurant, (Brotisserie LBRA was the model on rating plate??) and seems to have been put out by a Leblanco limited. Can't find their website, and the owner doesn't have the manual... I didn't have a meter or any tools with me, so I only took that info and got him to try and cycle it for me. Turns out, he's been trying to ignite the main burner, and it will, but shuts down right pretty quick. I figure, since he's been unaware of the pilot, the thermopile is playing a role in shutting it down. Next problem was lighting the pilot, yes had the reg on pilot and fully pushed in, no it didn't light... I'm hoping it's just clogged, as the customer said it was outside for sometime, but I didn't have so much as a wrench on me to check. So that's that, and I've promised to bring my tools down to try and get it going, and since it's a 2 hr drive and I'm new with gas combustion equipment, wondering if anyone has any suggestions.
P.S. the lighting instructions were partial, reading something to the effect of: lighting it, it'll go out, wait 5 minutes and light it again.... Also weird in my books.
Anyhelp appreciated, thanks
