When I light my Pilot on my Fryer it will not stay lit long enough to light the fryer. What can i do?


There are several possible causes of this problem, aside from a loose or damaged wire, which is uncommon. The cause in about 95% of the cases is a thermopile that has gone bad. The thermopile is the small cylinder that is attached to the pilot assembly where part of the pilot flame can contact it. It has a cable or wire going to the gas valve, high limit switch, or both. When hot enough, it produces and electrical current that keep the pilot on and allows the main gas valve to open. This is not hard to replace in most gas fryers and not too expensive. This often starts as an intermittent problem. The second possible cause is a defective high limit. The high limit is a small rectangular device with wires going to the gas valve and a tiny stainless tube that goes through the bottom of the kettle to a sensor bulb, like the thermostat has. These are usually self resetting, but may have a small red reset button. If present check the reset. If no reset, jump the two wires and see if the fryer will now light. If so, the high limit is defective, assuming the fryer is not over temperature. If defective, replace. Do not operate the fryer in this condition as there is no over temperature protection. The next cause is if the oil is too hot, in which case the high limit will shut off both the main burner and the pilot. The pilot cannot be relit until the fryer cools down and the high limit resets. If the oil is too hot, usually over 425F, replace the thermostat. If the high limit trips when the oil is in the normal operating range, replace the high limit. The final cause is a bad gas valve. This is not too common, but the gas valve is expensive and a bit difficult to replace. Check all of the other causes first.

How can you tell if the pitco fryer safety switch is bad


The safety switch is operated by extremely high temperatures. If the safety switch is bad, it will not shut off at extremely high temperatures.

How do I jump/bypass the high limit switch?


Hi there.
Hi limits can be bypassed by connecting jumper wire from common to normally close terminals but this should only be done for testing purposes, if proven defective you have to replace it with a good one before using the unit in cooking.
Hi limit is the safety device of fryers responsible for shutting the gas valve in case oil temp reaches 450f to avoid oil from catching fire.
Regards.

Pico fryer not operating at full preformance>


Hi there.
Check the gas pressure; low gas pressure results in low oil recovery.Check also the fire tubes for soot build up, clean as needed. The quantity and quality of product should also be considered, overloaded and/ or frozen product reduces the oil recovery.
Regards.

My pilot light will not stay lit. I have replaced the thermocouple and still will not stay lit. Can the valve be bad?


Make sure the thermocouple is deeper into the flame of the pilot light. It needs to reach a high enough temperature to produce a high enough voltage to keep the pilot light lit all the time. I do not think that the main gas valve is bad at all.

RED HOT FLUE EXHAUST


Hello. Yes this is normal for this type of fryer, meant more to cook the product, as efficiently as possible, and guzzle gas pretty good. If the orange is near the bottom of the flue, that is pretty good, there is , or should be insulation on the outside of the flue, or if the air gap is large enough, no insulation at all. Not getting near the exhaust pipe is advisable, or you will be burned. The gas pressure is important thought, if the burners are over/under pressured, it will affect the burn enough to damage, and shorten the life of the fry vessel. Call a local authorized servicer and have a check up, will not be free, but will save expense of something not being correct, most places, you pay an hour to check it good enough.

Hope that helped, and thank you.

Recovery time


If the unit starts off fine, and then loses some of it's heat, I would suspect that your regulator is freezing up. This can be caused be a bad tank or regulator. You'll have to swap it out to test it.

If the gas supply is good (reg and tank), you need to inspect the heat exchange tubes. Look where the flame shoots through the fryer. Use a flashlight. Look for LARGE amounts of black soot. If it is sooty, blow it out with compressed air. Once you get it cleaned out, you need to add more air to your mix. There should be a disk at the base of the burner.

If you have access to a manometer and orifice drills, you could adjust the flame to it's maximum. But as I said, I expect you have a regulator problem.
