Re: problems with black ash clogging up my flame tubes

Hi, If this is a new fryer it probably has the wrong gas jets in it. Probably set up for natural and using propane. Could be the gas pressures not set right on the valve. If this is the case, call your gas company and they will probably check it without charge. If it is a fryer that has been in use for a while and this problem just started you probably have a leak in your tubes to where oil is leaking into the flame area and the fryer will probably have to be replaced. It may be able to be welded if you have a good welder and he can find the leak in a place that can be welded. Good luck, kstfas

Large flame just above orifice

You have a clogged burner. It probably has carbon build up and that's pushing the gas outside the tube to burn. If you can remove the burner you can flush it out with water. Beware, it's messy. You will get carbon black all over everything.

Orange flame

A orange flame means that not enough air is mixing with the gas to produce a nice clean burning blue flame. Try cleaning out any deposits of grease or anything else that could be blocking the air pathway to the flame.

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.

Imperial 40 ignites but does not extend flames into heating tubes. Burns only fron

It sounds like your gas line either is clogged or your heating tubes are clogged up with oil/dirt/gunk? You can blow these out with a small hand held compressor or if you have a small enough brush, you can use that to clean it. The compressor is the quickest way, but have you cleaned this unit at all? Using a fryer boil out and running the fryer will also help clean out your holes, but again, the compressor works best.

My Pitco fryer is shooting large flames out of the door. . . . HELP!

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.

The flames on our pitco frialator (40lbs) are not suctioning through the tunnels and is burning an orange flame out the front of the burners instead. We are mobile unit with two 100lb tanks. We clean the...

The flame is restricted to flow inside fire tubes, make sure that all fire tubes are free of soot/ carbon deposit. There should be no air flowing (hood fresh air or any ventilation) or entering the flue box because this will cause the flame to roll back to burners. Also, make sure that the unit receives the right amount of gas pressure as specified in the nameplate, this will surely eliminate carbon build up on fire tubes and burners.

Flames shooting out vent until oil reaches 350 degrees why???

Hi there.
Check the gas pressure and gas type being fed to the unit if they are correct, low gas pressure will result in poor flame quality which will in turn produce carbon or soot inside the fire tubes.
Check also the condition of the fire tubes inside, they should be free of carbon or soot deposit.

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.

Orfice on fryer tube has flame on it

The things you will want to check and correct are the burner venturi, this is where the gas and air mix (where you see the flame when it backfires), this being dirty or clogged will cause this problem, your burner at the top being dirty can also cause this. Also, be sure the orifice is clean. If possible you should also check the gas pressure and set it accordingly. The other thing to check is the burner tubes themselves, these are the tubes that go through the fryer, many times with this scenario the tubes are getting clogged. These tubes being clogged will not necessarily cause this problem, but you may as well clean them while you are there.
