Hi I use to repair every kind of restaurant equipment under the sun..maybe I can help...Is this a new install of the fryer and it never did this before, or did this just start do this..If a new install, the first thing I would check is the gas regulator and see if it is for Nat gas or Lp gas, and find that out..cause it has to match what you have, comming into the building..usuall the gas valve has a sticker on it that says what the water columbs are like for Nat it is like 3-6, and for Lp(propane) it is like 5-12. Ive seen customers buy a used fryer, and install a LP fryer in a Natural gas build, and the valve lets too much gas to the burners, and it will shoot flames out the top..then you would have to buy and convert a gas valve, or use parts to convert it..let me know further..

Hi there. Flames rolling back instead of shooting inside the fire tubes can be a result of clogged fire tubes or air entering the flue, also check if there are objects blocking the flue. Regards.

Was the end of the spiral flue baffle burned up? If it was it could be disrupting the air flow which will not allow it to reach the proper temperature. Does the flame stay lit or does it go out after a while? If it is going out after a while the thermo-switch that detects high heat may be shutting it down due to the flame being too hot.

Did you change the orifice and regulator from Natural Gas to LP Gas? IF not, that's the problem.

Pilot light keeps going out after about 10 seconds on my Gazco Riva 67 inset fire.

Most likely it is the flame sensor thermocouple not working. Make sure the probe is right abaove the pilot flame and make sure it is clean and not covered in soot. The probe needs to sense the flame or the gas valve closes. These can be found at almost all harware suppliers and stores.

Heater fires up and runs for a few seconds and shuts off think the heat exchanger is filthy would that cause it.

There are several things that can cause this:

Check for blockage in the flue pipe or improper flue design resulting in inadequate venting.
One way to quickly determine a venting issue is to visually observe the flame on the burn tray. It should NOT be yellow and should burn evenly across the burner. There should NOT be any areas of the burner that appear to burned or deteriorated. Look for evidence of leaks,

You may need to dismantle the top section of the heater to visually inspect for sooting.
You may need to inspect the flame sensor mechanism (if applicable) for dirt or sooting.

If it is determined that your exchanger is sooted up, you have a blockage in the flue pipe or improperly designed flue.

I have a Dometic 2193 3 way fridge. It works

The flue baffle was the solution that worked for me as well. Below is a response I posted to a similar post.


I had a similar problem. The flue would get hot and the cooling tubes would get "warm". The refrig would get a LITTLE cool but nothing to be of any help.

I solved it turns out there is a "flue baffle" (twisty little metal thing) that is supposed to hang in the inside of the baffle. It hangs from a screw found on top of the baffle and it is supposed to hang down.

The screw that held mine was corroded and flue baffle had fallen into the baffle and landed on top of the burner.

I ended up fishing the flue baffle out of the top of the baffle with a coat hanger, then rehanging it using a new screw. That solved my problem.

Not sure if this will work for you or not but good luck.

By the way, you can find an owner's manual with a diagram showing the flue, the flue baffle, and the piece of metal holding it here:

Look on p.9, figure 9. Item C is the flue baffle and the wire holding it. Item B is the screw that was corroded on mine, and ended up dropping the baffle down to the bottom of the flue.

Below is a link to some generic directions on solving fridge-related problems. I found it to be VERY useful.

Rheem 50 gallon water tank. can not burn. CO senser is alarming

sounds like the flue is plugged up. or the venting at the bottom is plugged
CO is deadly, do not use if your CO sensor is going off.

you need to clean out the vents at the bottom of the heater, especially if this is a newer model water heater. if the vents are plugged the flame will light for a minute, but get really big and yellow, and then flame will go out.... not getting enough air

be sure to check the flue pipe, birds like to make nests, and will cause the flue gas to escape into the house instead of outside.

if you have problems, please call a pro, CO is deadly!

Hi there. When calling for cold, flame should be large and blue. If orange, clean mixing tube, flue, chimney. If still orange, adjust "air" inlet on mixing tube to get blue flame.

Toyo 56

Hi ejohn,

There is no valuable, practical adjustment for the flame on a Toyo Stove. A yellow flame can be caused by several things. How old is the stove? When was the last tune-up? A dirty sooty carboned up stove will have a yellow flame. A breach in the flue pipe will cause a yellow flame. An incorrect installation of the flue and exhaust hoses/metal exhaust elbow will cause a yellow flame. In the last scenario, the intake will be hooked to the exhaust and the exhaust will be hooked to the intake ports of the flue pipe. A malfunctioning fuel pump can also cause a yellow flame. The wrong fuel can cause a yellow flame, too. Most likely, your stove is dirty and needs a tuneup. It should have a bright blue flame if it is clean, and operating correctly. You can download a manual at REE, Anchorage through a Google search. If you want a more detailed diagoses, write back and give me more detail and I can help you further. Toyotech
