Valentine Pension 1-83. The fryer heats the oil and then the switch on electric board trips? Please help


Hi there!
Check the rating of the electrical circuit breaker where the unit is tapped, it must be at least 25 % higher than the unit' s current rating on nameplate to avoid tripping.
If hi-limit of the unit trips after reaching temperature setting, try lowering the set point; hi-limits are designed to trip off at 450F for safety. Or it may be faulty causing premature or early trip off temperature.
Regards.

The gas come through when the oil is cold, but when the oil hat enough the gas will cut off completely even without the pilot light, i wander why this happen? please let me know!


Hi there.
The hi limit may be tripping prematurely or the thermostat has its contacts stuck heating the oil temp high enough to trip the hi limit.
Kindly check those two components.
Regards.

I can turn on the pitco fryer.But it trips around 200 degree and I can't turn it on until the temp goes down. What's the problem? Do I need to check the Hi-limit or the thermostat?


Hi there.
Check the sensing bulb of the hi limit, ensure that it is not touching the fire tube.
If the hi limit sensing bulb is corrected and still tripping prematurely, you have to replace it with a good one.

What is the reason for the reset button keep poping out on the dean sm35gm


Hi there!
Reset button of hi-limit switch will only pop-out when its sensing bulb sensed temperature higher tha 450F (trip temperature of hi-limit). Theramostat may be bad allowing oil to reach temp above 450F causing hi-limit to trip-off or hi-limit itself is bad tripping-off at temperature lower than 450F.
Check also the position of the sensing bulb of the hi-limit, it may be positioned touching the heat tube (for gas fryer) or heating element (for electric fryer) that's why it prematurely trips-off.
Regards.

Fryer is cutting out after certain temp and tripping hi limit. I replaced Hi Limit, Thermopile and Thermostat and it worked great for two days and then kicked out again, tripped Hi Limit. I'm baffled...


Hi there
Hi limit will trip at 450F.
Check your thermostat setting, then check its calibration, this way you will be able to verify where the problem is.
If the setting and calibration of the thermostat is good, check the hi limit sensing bulb, it should not touch the fire tube because if it does, it will sense high temperature and will cause premature tripping.
Regards.

Trouble light comes on, can barely read the instruction around it(faded over time)It says to push a red button but not sure where the button is. Help!!


When trouble light comes on, it indicates that the hi-limit is tripped (this happens when oil temperature exceeds 450 Fahrenheit). The red button is located at the upper back panel of the unit, give it a push to reset but if nothing happens after resetting the button, the hi-limit needs to be replaced. Also try to check if the thermostat is working, stuck thermostat's mechanical contact will cause the hi-limit to trip.

I have a 40c+ss pitco fryer.the pilot will go out at random times.Could be 1hr or 24 hrs after it is lit. The gas valve has been change, and the thermalpile has been replaced.


Check if your pilot flame sufficiently heats thermopile during operation and make sure also that it is free of soot or any form of dirt, thermopile generates small amount of electricity to energize pilot and main valve of the gas valve for pilot and main burner operation. This electricity passes through hi limit mechanical contacts. Hi limit on fryers act as safety device which will shut down pilot and burner flame when oil temperature reaches 450F.
If your fryer is set at 350F and over shoots up to 450F (which will trip hi limit and shut down pilot and burner flame), the thermostat is not good, but, if hi limit trips on temperature much lower than 450F, hi limit is bad.

Hi- limit constantly trips


Check the oil temperature when it trips. If the oil is 410 degrees or less replace the high limit.
