Question about Pitco Frialator SG18S Deep Fryer

Flames are coming out the top, back of my fryer

Not all the time but on occation. I have 3 fryers side by side and it just happens to 1. I see that there was another inquiry about this and you said it is probably a leaking fry pot. How much is it (cost for parts) to replace the frypot and how easy is it to do it?

Flames coming out the exhaust

Flames coming out of the exhaust can be caused by several things.
The fryer could be set up for natural gas and it is installed on a propane system. The fryer can be leaking oil near the burner tube and the oil is burning causing excess flame. There could be grease buildup in the flue in the back of the fryer from people hanging the baskets in the wrong place.

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.

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

Imperial IFS-40 fryer. Pilot is lit, but buriners won't come on when the temp dial is turned from off to any degree.

Sounds like your thermostat is bad? We could order you one, however in order to get you a price, I need the serial number also. These are very common fryers,our best seller by far and a good fryer too. But, things happen, and the thermostat is the most common part that is replaced after some time....
Our phone is 888-542-5959, Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, Ohio. We ship parts in 1-2 days, and I can get you a price in a few minutes time, if you call or email me. Thanks, Susan REO
