You will need a couple of things. You can get them from the LP company. It is not difficult nor is it costly. They want your business and will help you through it. I can't recall what the parts are, but I have had it done once before. Let me know how you do. Make sure you are getting the best price for LP. It should be around 1.60-1.80 per gallon.

Flames cominhg out of flue


Hi I use to repair every kind of restaurant equipment under the sun..maybe I can help...Is this a new install of the fryer and it never did this before, or did this just start do this..If a new install, the first thing I would check is the gas regulator and see if it is for Nat gas or Lp gas, and find that out..cause it has to match what you have, comming into the building..usuall the gas valve has a sticker on it that says what the water columbs are like for Nat it is like 3-6, and for Lp(propane) it is like 5-12. Ive seen customers buy a used fryer, and install a LP fryer in a Natural gas build, and the valve lets too much gas to the burners, and it will shoot flames out the top..then you would have to buy and convert a gas valve, or use parts to convert it..let me know further..

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

Pilot stays lit but when you turn on temp switch pilot gets very low and burners will not light


has orifice been changed? Is this a used fryer that may have previously operated on LP gas? If so, there will be insufficient volume of gas (Nat) to the burner. Also check supply pressure at unit. Make sure supply line isn't damaged or distorted in that it may restrict flow to fryer.

Visit http://www.middleby.com and go to PITCO web, you will be able to locate there the nearest authorized parts dealer on your area and ask for the conversion kit (from nat to lp). The gas valve conversion kit consists of spring, cap and instruction manual. you also need to replace the burner and pilot orifice, Nat pilot and burner orifice have larger bore than lp.

Change from natural gas to propane


1.You will need to change the pilot orifice and the burner orifices
2. You may need to change the gas control valve. Some gas control valves are made for natural gas and some are made for LP. They have regulators built-in, that deliver the correct pressure respectively. Natural gas is 3.5 inches of water column, LP is 10 inches of water column.
Some manufacturers sell kits to change the spring in the regulator from Nat to LP
You would need a parts breakdown on the specific model number of your fryer to find the parts you need. Hope this helps.
