I agree - What everyone fails to tell you about conversion from Natural Gas to Propane -
1 - Take your time -
2 - The parts you get may be to many
3 - If you are going to use the unitl out-side - Wind is not your friend -
4 - While 20lb tanks will work - 60lb tanks are the best
I have found that only 70% of the gas in a 20lb tank will be used - the Amount of preasure / volumne decreases as the tank gets empty - a gas grill will empty a tank - a Deep Fryer (I have a Pitco 14 and 35c) will not - therefore, 60lb tanks
5 - Also, a 3/8 hose and connections will work, but 1/2 hose and connection work better - especially with a 60lb tank
6 - Find a good welder supply store to work with to get the hoses and adapters - Stay away from Lowes, Home Depot and other Box Stores - They are ok for most things, but not this project - Pay the extra money for the right stuff.

1 - Have 3/8, 7/16 and 1/2 wrenches - Open and Box style
2 - A very good philips and slotted screw-driver
3 - Remove the Front Door and Front Panel
4 - Remove the Burners - Be careful - they are heavy and if dropped, they do crack
5 - The orfices for the burners are simple to change
6 - The Gas Regulator on the Control valve is simple - not easy to get to, but simpe to change - and make sure it is tight, (so it does not leak) but not to tight - it can craxk
7 - The silver thimbel - it is a atomizier for the pilot - is also easy to replace, but hard to get to - don't bend the gas tube to much and be carefull removing the old one - it is jamed into the pilot
8 - Wind - IS NOT YOUR FRIEND - If outside, you need to cover the left, back and right side from wind - it will push the gas out of the burner (at the orfice) and into the cabinet and it will "POP" with gas - the orfices will have little flames on them - very yellow and very bad -

Hi, I have done this on many occasions , there are 3 things you would need, as far as parts, all of the main burner orfices, the pilot orfice, and the regulator portion of the gas safety combination valve. All of which require simple hand tools, the hard part is going to be checking, and setting your gas pressure unless you have a device called a manometer. You also need to make sure you have a proper pressure regulator to reduce the pressure coming from the tank to a level the gas safety valve is rated for, as the tank pressure is too high for the valve, and can damage it. So to answer your question, there are no online tutorials on how to do this. I hope this helps, and thank you.

    You can go here:
    http://www.pitco.com/economy.htm
    and download the parts manual to look at what the parts are, where they are, and see approx. what you would need to do to accomplish this, I would suggest at this point that you take it to a gas appliance company to check, and set your gas pressure, your propane supplier should very well be able to do this, as well as provide you with the proper regulator, hope this also helps.

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

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.
