SOURCE: problems with fryer

your problem is the thermostat is bad.the reason it shuts down is that it trips the hi limit.the hi limit is a saftey device that shuts the system down so the oil doesnt get too hot and catch on fire.remove all the oil from the tank and you should see 2 skinny metal bulbs one is the hi limit bulb the other is the t-stat bulb,make sure they are secured to the bracket.if the t-stat bulb isnt you will also have this issue,simply reattach it.let me know.

SOURCE: pilot goes out when fryer reaches set temp. and shuts-off.

try to change the thermal battery the device that the pilot heats.. other wise there is a screw at the botton of the automatic valve.. try to increase the pilot so it can heat more the thermal battery! u dont have enough voltage to activate the solenoid valve so thats why ur pilot goes off

SOURCE: the fryer is a pitco 35cs can u tell me y it heats

It shuts down because it is tripping the high limit. Apply a soap solution to the lines going from the gas valve to the thermostat. If bubbles appear there is a leak and needs to be corrected. If no bubbles appear then the thermostat is probably your problem.

WHEN FRYER HEATS UP THEN IS LOADED TEMP SEEMS TO FALL AND HAS TO BE RESET


If you manually reset by pressing overtemp thermostat, then check your operating thermostat.. maybe over heating.. if so replace thermostat.. if pilot cuts out completely prematurely without reaching set temp then replace overtemp cut out thermostat as it is faulty.
Cheers

I bought pitco frialator and am testing it with water when it reaches my set temp of 200 degrees the screen shows "DROP" but the burners keep heating. What do i need to replace. Thanks


There are a number of things here I would need more info on before I could help you....OK, you say you're using water, but oil heats up differently, so you really can't substitute one for the other... Secondly, are you setting the thermostat to 200 degrees and expecting the unit to shut off? I'm guessing you have a digital unit, which is telling you to drop the product down into the oil, at 200 degrees? If that is correct, 200 would not be a correct temperature for frying, but if you set it there to start with, maybe it's heating up just fine? The fryer knows when you drop product, the temperature will go down, so it staying on doesn't surprise me... That could be completely normal.... I would need to know the model and serial of this unit in order to make heads or tails of this and what exactly is wrong h ere? Do you think it should be getting hotter? Are you setting it to 350 and it only goes to 200? Remember oil takes longer to heat up than water and the density if also alot different than oil. One cannot be used to replace the other.... The water will heat up quickly and cool alot quicker too. If your temperature is off, then the first thing to check would be the thermostat, but I wouldn't just yet.... I need more info first to diagnose your issue. Thanks, Susan REO

Flame goes off when temp. reaches 250 degrees, use to stay on 350 degrees without problems an them started acting up and won't reach that temp any more, disconnect the pilot automaticly


Hi limit device trips prematurely (should only trip when oil temp reaches 450F). Check if the hi limit sensing bulb (located inside the fryer tank, between fire tubes) is not touching the fire tube because if it does, it will sense the heat from burner flame which is much higher than oil temp.

Pitco old gas fryer pilot light outage, change the themocouple,still won't work


Check and tighten all wiring connections. check if your thermopile receives enough heat from the pilot flame. Once the pilot is lit, the hi limit device will be the only one capable of shutting it down during operation (once the oil temperature reaches 450F) provided the gas supply is sufficient.

I have a 40c+ss pitco fryer.the pilot will go out at random times.Could be 1hr or 24 hrs after it is lit. The gas valve has been change, and the thermalpile has been replaced.


Check if your pilot flame sufficiently heats thermopile during operation and make sure also that it is free of soot or any form of dirt, thermopile generates small amount of electricity to energize pilot and main valve of the gas valve for pilot and main burner operation. This electricity passes through hi limit mechanical contacts. Hi limit on fryers act as safety device which will shut down pilot and burner flame when oil temperature reaches 450F.
If your fryer is set at 350F and over shoots up to 450F (which will trip hi limit and shut down pilot and burner flame), the thermostat is not good, but, if hi limit trips on temperature much lower than 450F, hi limit is bad.

I put it on any temp and it heats to 550 degrees


Replace the thermostat, P5047588. If the fryer is not shutting off, both main burner and pilot, when it overheats, also replace the high limit PP10084. The high limit usually shuts the fryer off at about 425-450F. Check your thermometer. A fryer should never get up to 550F.

High limit kicks out fryer and pilot light can


Since you've mention the pilot light goes out at 400 degree F, then we are talking a gas Deep Fryer. The deepfryer usually use at 350 degree F for chips or else. Because the oil will start breaking down its quantity of frying very quickly over that temperature. Most people set at 350 degree F. Now we comes back to your problem, First you should have a deep fryer thermometer they espcially made for deep fryer, (You only mention 400 or better ) that make me think you're only guessing. Knowing the temperature is very important, most Hi limit is set at 420 degree F.
To me it seen the Hi Ltd control is working and that is why it cutting out the pilot when it reach its limit but we don't know what temperature that when the hi limit cutting out at.
When you have a thermometer, put it in the cold oil and turn the temperature to 100 degree F to see what the temperature control cutting out at. slowly increase your setting until it cutting out at 350 degree F . If you set at 250 degree F and the thermometer already reaching 350 degreen F then don't go any further , your temperature control is defective and need to be change a new one.
This is only the first step, you still have to check out the Hi ltd control to see how good its condition is,so far your information say it cutting out at 400 or better. But you've to be sure, because it is a safety control. Hope that will help you , God Bless.
