SOURCE: pitco fryer sg14R not turn on at all

The hi limit must be tripped. Open the door and find a swich that has a really small red button on it and push it in. If it clicks, it was tripped. If not, with the door open bend way down and look up whare the top of the door is when closed. You will find a small black fuse holder. Push up as you turn, and pull out. Check to see if the fuse is blown, if it is replace with the SAME SIZE & RATING. DO NOT USE TIN FOIL.

SOURCE: How do I test the Pitco Frialator 35CS high limit switch

remove connections from hi-limit switch, and put an ohm-meter across connections then heat it with a match or heat source of that temp range,heat the face and watch your meter it will show open when hi limit reaches cutoff limit/if you need exact cutout temp,you will need to have one of those digital read-out temp gun

SOURCE: Pitco Fryer is displaying CHECK SUM FAILURE - in

Check sum failure is an error on the configuration of the computer board. You have to reset the computer board to factory setting to get rid of this error (if check sum failure appears every now and then on the display). Make sure that you have the list of your cooking parameters before you reset the board to factory setting. Any settings made prior to a factory reset will be lost. Details on how to reset the board to factory setting can be downloaded at pitco website on www.middleby.com.

SOURCE: Pitco SG14R Backfires

That is strange....Have you tried to clean out your gas lines? Sometimes, especially in LP fryers, they get stuff up inside the gas lines, which have to be cleaned out in order for them to work correctly...I sure sounds like a gas problem, with you saying it "backfires". Another to check, would be is this a natural gas fryer, hooked up to LP, or vice versa? Either way it wouldn't work properly, and could cause that.... You don't have a leak around your fry pot area, do you? That catches fire sometimes, where the oil leaks out under the pot. You can also check your jets, as they get clogged up too. We use a air compressor to blow them out, but you can use a small brush or a skewer to clean them out as well. Our gas service tech, Ray is off Monday, but he will be back in on Tuesday, so if you need further help, please call and speak with him Tuesday.
Our toll free number is 888-542-5959. We are open 8:30 to 5:30 M-F.
I hope this helps, but if not, call Ray and he can probably help you further.

The burners will not light. The pilot does light. I had my staff try to hit anything that looked a reset, but I don't know if the high limit switch has a reset or if the switch itself is bad.


The high limit switch has nothing to do with the pilot light, but will shut down the main burners. It the pilot light will not stay lit, then it is most likely the thermocouple. If the pilot light will not light at all, then gas is not reaching the pilot. Most likely, the pilot light tube is clogged with grease. When you push on the button to light the pilot, you are overriding all safeties inside the unit and sending gas to the pilot. Also make sure that the unit itself is getting gas. New regulations require a shut off within the hose that feeds the appliance which will shut off due to a surge of gas through the hose. To reset it, disconnect/reconnect the hose at the intake end and when you turn the gas back on, turn it on slowly.

Fryer was working before being cleaned but a cook started it up without the oil now nothing will work?


Hopefully it has kicked out on high limit thermostat. It depends a lot ofn what type of control you have on your fryer. If they are all mechanical controls, the high limit may need to be reset. Open the front door of the fryer. There are two thermostat bulbs in the fryer. One goes to the thermostat with the temperature dial, the other to the high limit thermostat. Hopefully the high limit thermostat that you have will have a small red button sticking out. Push that button in and then relight the pilot as you would normally do. If your high limit thermostat does not have a red button it is an automatic reset high limit. When the fryer pot cools below 300 degrees it should reset itself. If you have electronic computer controls on your fryer you will have to reprogram your thermostat settings.

My deep fryer pilot goes out all of a sudden. Every thing goes well at first, then when it gets going good, it shuts down and the pilot goes out too.


Pitco's are known for this. Locate the high limit. It under your thermostat and has a red reset button that you can push to reset it. Check the wires that come from it and make sure they do not have a broken place in them. If not, you will need a high limit switch for it. What happens is when the high limit gets weak and instead of turning the gas valve off after the oil gets 410 degrees, it cuts it off at a lower temp. As I stated, it's a common problem with Pitco. You can find the part at www.hfse.com . They carry parts for most all make and model unit. Good luck.

Pilot wont stay lit


If it will not stay lit from a cold start, you will need a thermopile. You can check it if you have a DC meter that will test milivolts. It should be putting out between 300 and 500. If it will not stay lit after the pot gets hot, you will most likely need a high limit. Try pushing the red button below the thermostat. This will reset the high limit.

Hi need sper part for pitco fryer flame failure valve model no 14


It sounds like you are not recieving a heat feedback signal. It may be as simple as cleaning your flame sensor, using a emery cloth/ scotchbright. Be sure that all gas is turned to the on positions. Also that any safty high limits are closed / reset.
