Your regulator has a thermocouple that senses the pilot before allowing the valve to open. It is sensitive to the miniscule amount of energy that is produced from the flame. Your thermocouple is bad or covered in soot and needs replacement/cleaning/adjustment.
Locate the thermocouple, and sometimes it can be cleaned with fine sandpaper. If it is not in the line of the pilot flame, make an adjustment. You cannot keep the pilot lit if the thermocouple does not sense the flame. It will go out when you release the button.
Clean or replace the thermocouple to fix.

How do I troubleshoot my fryer when I cannot get it to start?


In order to turn the knob to the pilot position you need to push the knob in slightly and then turn. Once the pilot position on the knob is lined up with the indicator on the valve, you can push it in and gas will flow to the pilot assembly.

Napoleon Fireplace propane Pilot won't light main burner even though gas flows in?


  • I'm going to assume your fireplace has a pilot light.
  • Follow the little holes in the burner that lead to the pilot light.
  • Make sure the pilot flame is pointing directly at the closest burner hole. (adjust if necessary).
  • Often, you will need to sprinkle a layer of "glowing embers" in this area. The embers will help the gas travel to the pilot light and ignite.
  • Always start your propane appliance on "High" never "Low". Cold propane likes to drop to the bottom of the firebox and accumulate until it reaches the pilot (this is called delayed ignition). Keeping it on "high" will help the fuel travel over to the pilot without buildup.

Instuctions on how to change a pitco fryer from nat gas to propane


Hi there!
You need to order a gas valve conversion kit (from nat to propane), propane pilot orifice and propane burner orifice,
Gas valve conversion kit consists of a replacement spring thicker than of natural gas valve spring, gas valve cap and a sticker.
Pilot orifice for propane has smaller bore than of natural.
Burner orifice for propane has also smaller bore than of natural burner orifice (one for each burner).
You will be able to find these parts on the list of Pitco Distributor when you visit http://www.pitco.com

I have a older 40,000 BTU 3 burner natural gas deep fryer. I would like to convert to propane gas. The orifice number is size 32. Do I need to get different orifices to convert? The serial number is...


Hi there.

Burner orifice size for propane gas is number 55. You have to replace all burner orifice with this size if you want to use the fryer with propane gas. Pilot burner orifice should be replaced with propane pilot orifice.The gas valve spring should also be replaced with propane spring kit. The difference between the two spring is the natural gas spring is lighter or thinner compare with the propane gas valve spring.

We purchased a used Vulcan Steamer model # VSX10GC which was set up for propane. We need to convert it to Natural Gas. How do we do this and how do we get the parts



Please be careful when converting appliances form natural gas to propane. Depending on the equipment there are several changes that need to be made. You will at least have to change burner orifices and convert or replace the gas valve. Some gas valves are not convertible. What many people over look are changing the pilot orifice and on some appliances like braising pans, griddles and char broilers there is a runner tube orifice. The gas valve also needs to be adjusted to the proper manifold pressure and pilot adjustments will be required. I recommend on Vulcan equipment that you contact Hobart Service since they are factory trained on all Vulcan cooking equipment.

I had purchased this unit RMO-80LPT heater several years back, I never installed unitl this week. the sales en at the time told me it was gas/propane. Now seeing the -80LPT on the side is it propane...


The orifices for a propane heater are much smaller so you will not be able to get the natural gas to flow properly with the current orifices.

The both the natural gas and propane valve are 1/2 psi so the valve can be used but the regulator for propane is typically 8-11 inches on the wc table and the natural gas is typically 3 lbs on the wc.

You may be able to drill out the orifices in the burner and in the pilot ods and get the unit to work.

Pilot and Burner shut off at same time at various run times.


sounds like your pilot saftey is working.the pilot flame heats a device called a thermacoupler which gives a signal to the gas valve letting it know its ok to open main valve. you may need a new thermacouple , might have a dirty pilot orfice or a problem with gas pressure or worse case a cracked heat exchanger in any case in less you have some type of training you should call a pro

Oven pilot shuts off while cooking model H286RC-24


You may have an adjustment problem. The pilot flame needs to under the thermocoupler back from the tip just a touch. But ultimately, if the flame is good, the thermocoupler is good, you have a bad valve.

Also make sure that there is no overall gas pressure problems with the unit. A bad regulator can starve a unit for gas one minute, and work the next.

Inefficient (big, yellow flame) on wall propane heater, using up propane too fast


A clue to what could be wrong is that you mentioned it took 10 minutes for the pilot to go out. It could be your gas valve. Get a technician in to check your gas pressure both before the gas valve and after. Have them check it as the water heater is running.
