Hello, no, the valve has not been welded on, however, it does take a bit of effort to get it off the frypot, I usually use a socket type wrench or ratchet to remove them, makes it a bit easier. As far as the sealant goes, if it is leaking out of the handle seal, just get a new valve, if it is leaking from the threaded pipe of the frypot then a good sealant will do, they use sealant from the factory, usually meant for the temp, and stainless steel.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

There is a seal inside of there that prevents it from leaking. The seal has failed.

I would advise against any type of repair using a sealant. If there should ever be any sickness found to be the result of using the sealant, then you or the owner will be held liable.

By a new valve, and if I recall correctly, this is a stainless or nickel plated valve.

Reply back if you have any questions.

My vulcan lg 300 deep fryer latch won't turn what should I do

Some fryer valves have a safety lock, usually a slide on the handle near the valve body that must be released to open the valve. Check for this first. It's very rare for a fryer valve to stick unless it was forced shut with something partially blocking it. If not, let the fryer cool completely. Dip as much oil out as possible. Then disconnect the gas line and, with help, turn the fryer upside down draining the remaining oil into a suitable container. At this point, you have little to lose. Take a large wrench or piece of pipe to get more leverage and try to force it open and free it up. Do not use so much force that you damage the kettle. If you get it free, check to see that it does not leak before putting oil back in the fryer. If it leaks or fails to come free, replace the valve.

The front drain is leaking

Hi there.
Check first if there are no foreign objects hangings on the ball causing leak.
If you really need to change the ball valve, cling the jaw of a 14-inch pipe wrench on the neck of the valve connected to the fryer drain and turn it counter clockwise (***do this with no oil on fry tank and make sure that the tank is cold).
Wrap a teflon tape on the thread before installing the new ball valve.

Drain valve leaking,do i need to replace if so getting the right valve.steve

It depends on where it is leaking. If the oil is coming out around the threads where the valve screws onto the fryer, you can remove it and put teflon tape on the threads on the fryer and then put the valve back on tightly. If it is dripping through the valve when it is closed, you need to replace the valve. The only thing you need to match up is that it has the same threads and that it is a high temperature valve. Most Pitco fryers use inch and a half pipe threads. Pipe threads are weird, inch and a half pipe actually measures 1.9 inches outside to outside of the threads. The temperature range is up to 500 degrees F. Check with your nearest restaurant supply company. They can order you a new valve if that is what you need.

Leaking from oil holding pot

Using dyed water, locate leak(s), go to a welder that does stainless steel and get fixed. If leaks are detected where thermocouples pass thru tank, remove and re-seal fittings.
