Replace thermostats for Pitco 35c

Hoe do I replace both thermostats for the Pitco 35c? Does it make more sense to buy a new unit? Where is the cheapest place to purchase the parts?

Replacing the t'stat can be hard. I would first evaluate the cost of the vat. Do you have any leaks now in it? I would replace the t'stats. The cost is much less than the cost of even a used one.

Would Pitco 35C+ still heat if bulb/capillary of control thermostat breaks?


Hi there.

The unit will not fire up if the capillary of thermostat is broken or punctured because the thermostat's mechanical contact will remain open.

Regards.

Seems like it shuts off when its gets to a certane temp have to relight pilot


Check if the oil temp does not reach 450F because if it does, it will trip the high limit device that will shut off the burner flame as well as the pilot flame. But if high limit device trips off prematurely (at temperature less than 450F) you have to replace it. Just make sure that its sensing bulb does not touch the fire tube.

After we used our fryer last time, there was a soot build up on our exhaust. Just tested it again, and it seems to be running really hot. Do we need a new thermostat? How much is a thermostat?


Soot is formed when fuel combustion is incomplete. Check if the gas pressure is sufficient and of correct type (natural or propane gas). Thermostat can be checked by observing if the burner flame goes off when the oil temperature reached the thermostat setting. Price can be checked at pitco website on www.middleby.com.

Hello i have an electric Pitco Frialator and when I turn it on the light comes on but it doesn't click and doesn't heat up. What could be causing this?


If the mechanical thermostat is set at temperature higher than the present oil temperature and does not "click" it is a bad thermostat and needs replacement. Clicking sound on thermostat indicates closing of the mechanical contacts.
Physically examine the thermostat capillary and sensing bulb, any puncture found indicates that it needs replacement.
