SOURCE: Pitco Frialator Model 14S

Excellent reason to use Dormont flex lines.
If water gets to your combination valve (the thing with the on-off knob,) it should be replaced. Can you hear gas hissing? If there is gas at the orifice, it should light. check to see that all of the air is purged. Can you smell gas?

SOURCE: want to convert pitco frialator model 14 from gas to propane

I agree - What everyone fails to tell you about conversion from Natural Gas to Propane -
1 - Take your time -
2 - The parts you get may be to many
3 - If you are going to use the unitl out-side - Wind is not your friend -
4 - While 20lb tanks will work - 60lb tanks are the best
I have found that only 70% of the gas in a 20lb tank will be used - the Amount of preasure / volumne decreases as the tank gets empty - a gas grill will empty a tank - a Deep Fryer (I have a Pitco 14 and 35c) will not - therefore, 60lb tanks
5 - Also, a 3/8 hose and connections will work, but 1/2 hose and connection work better - especially with a 60lb tank
6 - Find a good welder supply store to work with to get the hoses and adapters - Stay away from Lowes, Home Depot and other Box Stores - They are ok for most things, but not this project - Pay the extra money for the right stuff.

1 - Have 3/8, 7/16 and 1/2 wrenches - Open and Box style
2 - A very good philips and slotted screw-driver
3 - Remove the Front Door and Front Panel
4 - Remove the Burners - Be careful - they are heavy and if dropped, they do crack
5 - The orfices for the burners are simple to change
6 - The Gas Regulator on the Control valve is simple - not easy to get to, but simpe to change - and make sure it is tight, (so it does not leak) but not to tight - it can craxk
7 - The silver thimbel - it is a atomizier for the pilot - is also easy to replace, but hard to get to - don't bend the gas tube to much and be carefull removing the old one - it is jamed into the pilot
8 - Wind - IS NOT YOUR FRIEND - If outside, you need to cover the left, back and right side from wind - it will push the gas out of the burner (at the orfice) and into the cabinet and it will "POP" with gas - the orfices will have little flames on them - very yellow and very bad -

SOURCE: What are most common problems found with pitco

Some of the most common problems with Pitco fryers is failed Hi-Limit thermostats, carbon build up on burner tubes, and dirty or clogged burners. This hi-limit thermostat is mounted inside the fry tank on one of the burners. Often the cappillary tubes are damaged or broken during cleaning causing the limit to fail. The hi-limit is the most common part I replace on Pitco fryers. The other common items are self explanitory. Keep the fryer clean in all areas, including burners and tubes. You will see the repair man less often.

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.

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.

The flames on our pitco frialator (40lbs) are not suctioning through the tunnels and is burning an orange flame out the front of the burners instead. We are mobile unit with two 100lb tanks. We clean the...


The flame is restricted to flow inside fire tubes, make sure that all fire tubes are free of soot/ carbon deposit. There should be no air flowing (hood fresh air or any ventilation) or entering the flue box because this will cause the flame to roll back to burners. Also, make sure that the unit receives the right amount of gas pressure as specified in the nameplate, this will surely eliminate carbon build up on fire tubes and burners.

Pitco Frialator SF14 pilot will light and the burners will light but within an hour it completely shuts off (pilot and burners). The high limit and thermostat have been changed 1 month ago.


Check the hi limit sensing bulb, it should not touch the fire tube, when it does, it will sense high temperature which will trip its mechanical contacts and will shut pilot and burner flames.
Make also sure that the thermopile is free of soot or any form of dirt and is properly heated by the pilot flame.

What type brushes do you use to clean pitco gas fryers


Cleaning the frypot or the inside of the burner tubes themselves ? The frypot can be cleaned using a RED scrub pad. You can get a boiler tube brush & extension set from United Refrigeration for about $20. You need the brass brush end that screws on the 36 inch t-handle extension.
