Soot coming out of flu


Hi there.
Soot coming out of the flue indicates poor flame quality and probably carbon or soot build up on fire tubes.
Have a technician check the gas pressure and the fire tubes for verification and cleaning if needed.
Regards.

Soot coming


Hi there. Check the gas pressure, it should meet the the nameplate required pressure, low gas pressure produce poor flame quality which results in soot formation.. The type of gas must also be compatible with the orifice sizes on pilot and burners. Check and clean as needed all soot formation on burners and fire tubes.
Regards.

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

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.

After we used our fryer last time, there was a soot build up on our exhaust. Just tested it again, and it seems to be running really hot. Do we need a new thermostat? How much is a thermostat?


Soot is formed when fuel combustion is incomplete. Check if the gas pressure is sufficient and of correct type (natural or propane gas). Thermostat can be checked by observing if the burner flame goes off when the oil temperature reached the thermostat setting. Price can be checked at pitco website on www.middleby.com.

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.

Flames shooting out vent until oil reaches 350 degrees why???


Hi there.
Check the gas pressure and gas type being fed to the unit if they are correct, low gas pressure will result in poor flame quality which will in turn produce carbon or soot inside the fire tubes.
Check also the condition of the fire tubes inside, they should be free of carbon or soot deposit.
Regards.

Check the thermopile, it should be free of soot or any form of dirt. Pilot flame quality must be good. Gas pressure should meet the requirement as stated on the nameplate.
