Hi there.
Your unit is probably receiving low gas pressure, make sure that the incoming gas pressure complies with the rated as shown on nameplate.
Or your gas valve has leak on main valve if the small flame is visible on burner orifice after the cut-off.

SOURCE: want to convert pitco frialator model 14 from gas to propane

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 -

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

Burner presure of pitco 45c lpg you said free

This information is generally stamped on the data plate. I believe it is 10" WC manifold pressure. 12" WC is required for the supply pressure with all other equipment on the line on. Hope this helps. All service and install manuals are available on

45C- Flame and pilot went out during operation, Pilot won't relight.

If your pilot is a manual ignition model, make sure that the thermopile is clean (free of soot), it is the cylindrical piece of metal behind the pilot assembly which is heated by the pilot flame, a very small amount of voltage is generated by it to open pilot and main burner valves of gas valve.

Pitco 45C- fryer lights and burns aprox. 5 to 8 minutes, then flame and pilot go out. However it will relight without having to reset anything. This info is coming from the owner and I have not seen the...

I assume that the fryer has auto ignition feature. Try to check if the hi limit sensing bulb (located inside the fry tank) is not touching the fire tube, it must have at least 3 millimeter clearance with respect to the fire tube otherwise, high temperature will be sensed that will trip (@ 450F) its mechanical contact which will in turn shut the burner operation and will reset once it is cooled down.
The same with the manual ignition fryers.
