Black soot


Soot is caused by a few things in gas appliances. Propane even more so. Lack of combustion air is usually the culprit. In propane fired equipment orifice alignment, high pressure or the wrong burner orifice can cause yellow flames the result in soot build up. You need to find the culprit. Best to have a service tech check it out and clean it. when you know what to look for it can be easily fixed.

Soot coming out of flu


Hi there.
Soot coming out of the flue indicates poor flame quality and probably carbon or soot build up on fire tubes.
Have a technician check the gas pressure and the fire tubes for verification and cleaning if needed.
Regards.

Soot coming


Hi there. Check the gas pressure, it should meet the the nameplate required pressure, low gas pressure produce poor flame quality which results in soot formation.. The type of gas must also be compatible with the orifice sizes on pilot and burners. Check and clean as needed all soot formation on burners and fire tubes.
Regards.

Help flames front of fryer


Hi there.
Try to check and clean if needed the fire tubes, soot may have build up inside blocking the flame path. Soot build up on fire tubes and burners are caused primarily by low gas pressure, assuming that the orifice size are correct with respect to the type of gas used.
Regards.

Deep fryer ignites but burner flames will not enter cylinders


Hi there.
Fire tubes may be clogged with soot. Have a technician inspect and clean the fire tubes for soot deposits/ build ups.
Check also if there is no air or ventilation directed on flue as it will push the flames back to the burners.
Regards.

Pitco deep fryer flames coming out the fryer


Hi there.
The soot or carbon have probably build up inside the fire tubes, better check and have an authorized service technician clean them.
Make sure that the fryer is receiving the rated gas pressure and correct gas type as stated on the nameplate, this way, carbon or soot formation on fire tubes can be prevented
Regards.

Should there be soot in the flue deflector? How often should this be cleaned out and what is the best way to clean this out?


Soot is formed when the fuel combustion is incomplete. Incomplete combustion may occur if the fuel is low, air and fuel mixture is not correct, wrong size of burner orifice with respect to the fuel used ( propane or natural gas).
Soot can be removed by wiping it off with a nylon scrubbing pad dipped in grease cutting solution. Check also the fire tubes for soot or carbon build up.

Is there an easy way to get access to the rear vent to clean away soot and buildup?


You have to dismantle the back panel to have access in cleaning the flue. Soot formation or carbon build up on fryers are due to low operating gas pressure. When the fryer receives lower than the nameplate rating gas pressure, the flame on burners will be of poor quality (yellow flame) which will in turn produce soot/ carbon.

Soot build up


Flame is Orange? If so, propane is "choked", not enough air. Remove burners, clean each burner hole with a same size metal dowel (coat hanger works well) flush out inside of burner with garden hose, hi pressure air through all holes to dry. Replace burners ONLY after also cleaning chambers and chimney (garden hose and long brush). Do not forget to clean pilot light area too.
Most Imperials are pre-set air intake. Check gas pressure if able, 3" NG, 10" LPG. Good Luck
