Sounds like the pilot is dirty,if you have propane gas this is your issue,replace the pilot either way.

SOURCE: one burner puts out soot.

Hi there, I believe that the burner you are having a problem with, needs the inside of it cleaned, probably has alot of dust inside, or some material is in/on the orifice where the gas enters, you could also have an alignment problem with the orifice, causing a disturbance in the flow of the gas/air mixture. In addition it sounds like you may have a gas pressure problem, you should contact your gas supplier to have it checked, or call your local service company.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

SOURCE: imperial ifs 40: gas comes out of jet and the

Check your manual and make sure your burner is configured for the gas that you are using. In most cases, there is an orifice that needs to be changed for using LP, or a screw setting that needs to be changed- most new appliances ship with a "city gas" configuration ( AKA NG - Natural Gas) and need to be configured for LPG (Liquified Propane Gas). The fitting(s) that need to be changed are tagged. This is due to the pressure difference between NG and LPG. Propane (LPG) runs at a higher pressure.
You state that your fryer is LPG. If you are running it on NG ("city gas") you need to consult your manual for converting it to NG. Outside of making sure that you are set up for the right gas, you should not have to make any other adjustments. For safety reasons, gas regulator pressure adjustments are for the most part no longer possible on gas appliances.

SOURCE: WHICH IS THE BEST DEEP FRYER. VULCAN 70 LB NAT GAS

Vulcan, however there are other brands that are better than both of those...Keating is one and Imperial is another. There is a pretty big price difference also. The Keating is the most expensive, but also the best of the bunch.... If you need additional pricing, please call us at 888-542-5959.

I'm getting a lot of soot from my propane fired fryer. Otherwise works well.


The burner flames must be BLUE. Yellow flames will produce soot. Sounds like the burner orifice size needs to be checked.

Are Propane LPG fryers compatible with Butane LpG


Talk to the manufacturer or check your owners manual. The jets in the burner must be slightly smaller for butane. The flame will burn yellow with black soot/smoke if you don't change them.

Black soot


Soot is caused by a few things in gas appliances. Propane even more so. Lack of combustion air is usually the culprit. In propane fired equipment orifice alignment, high pressure or the wrong burner orifice can cause yellow flames the result in soot build up. You need to find the culprit. Best to have a service tech check it out and clean it. when you know what to look for it can be easily fixed.

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
Regards.

My Pitco fryer is shooting large flames out of the door. . . . HELP!


Hi there.
You should inspect the fire tubes, it is a tunnel under the fry tank where the burner flames suppose to travel to heat up the oil. Your fire tubes may be clogged with soot or carbon that's why flames cannot go thru the fire tubes. Fire tubes must be free of soot or carbon deposits.
Soot build up on fire tubes can be prevented by keeping the gas pressure at standard as much as possible, low gas pressure produce yellow flame or poor flame quality and in turn will produce soot.
Also, make sure that no air or ventilation is directed towards the flue riser, otherwise, the same will result, flames rolling back towards the door.
Regards.

We have a yellow flames


There are few things which causes fryers to produce yellow flame on burners. First- Low gas pressure and volume, second- carbon or soot formation on burner face and heat tubes. Check first if your fryer has one of these conditions and try to address this as soon as possible.

Is there an easy way to get access to the rear vent to clean away soot and buildup?


You have to dismantle the back panel to have access in cleaning the flue. Soot formation or carbon build up on fryers are due to low operating gas pressure. When the fryer receives lower than the nameplate rating gas pressure, the flame on burners will be of poor quality (yellow flame) which will in turn produce soot/ carbon.

My pitco 35 c the flame is burning yellow and not going inside the very wall i thought it might be the regulator pressure on the fryer on the back side


Low gas pressure will produce low flame quality (yellow flame).
Check and remove any dirt or soot on burner holes, and orifice
Burner flame not going inside the fire tube could be due to soot or carbon build up inside the fire tube blocking the flame path, check the inside of the fire tube, if considerable amount of soot is seen, better have them removed.
Yellow flame will cause a lot of problem on fryers if not corrected as soon as possible.
If you have doubt on your gas regulator, better have a qualified service technician to check it.
