SOURCE: flame not going into heat tubes

Make sure the regulator assembly on the gas valve is for propane. Sounds like the gas pressure is too low and the flames aren't going into the burner tubes. Make sure they didn't install an appliance regulator on the back of the fryer. This is not needed as the fryer has a regulator on the gas valve. You can unscrew the cap on the regulator assembly and turn the plastic screw inside all the way in. DO not turn with alot of force. Easy does it.

SOURCE: My Pitco fryer is shooting

Hi there.
You should inspect the fire tubes, it is a tunnel under the fry tank where the burner flames suppose to travel to heat up the oil. Your fire tubes may be clogged with soot or carbon that's why flames cannot go thru the fire tubes. Fire tubes must be free of soot or carbon deposits.
Soot build up on fire tubes can be prevented by keeping the gas pressure at standard as much as possible, low gas pressure produce yellow flame or poor flame quality and in turn will produce soot.
Also, make sure that no air or ventilation is directed towards the flue riser, otherwise, the same will result, flames rolling back towards the door.
Regards.

Yesterday my fryer started shooting flames out of the fryer. What is the problem?


Check for loose or broken gas line connectors, including the pilot line. Check for blockage in the flue in the back of the fryer. Things occasionally fall down there and people with the bad habit of banging the fry baskets on the top of the flue will eventually clog it up with food particles and carbonized grease. Check for a defective gas pressure regulator, which can cause excessive gas pressure getting to the burners. Check to see if the burners are properly in position and that the holes in the burner are not blocked by soot or grease.

You may be able to check these things by having one person very carefully open the main gas shutoff just enough to for a second person to try to light the fryer. Before attempting to light the fryer listen and smell for escaping gas. If the fryer lights, observe the fryer while the first person very gradually opens the valve further. This can be hazardous, and the person observing should stay well back and the person on the main gas valve should be ready to close the valve.

Personally, if the problem is not obvious, like a loose of broken gas line or a blocked flue, I would leave further testing to a qualified service provider.

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.

Hi, Probably the thermocouple. It will be right at the pilot light and hooks to the gas valve. The pilot heats it up to tell the gas valve that the pilot is working. If this is an electronic ignition, It will be the flame sensor still close to the pilot and will need cleaned or replaced. Hope this helps.
