My imperial deep fryer is leaking from somewhere. Is there suppose to be a drip pan?

No, there is no drip pan. If the oil is leaking from the drain spout, you can screw a plug in it. If it is leaking from the tank around the burner tubes.... then you need a new fryer.

Oil Burner Problems Can Sometimes be Fixed with a TigerLoop

There are sometimes that an oil burner problem fix is much easier than you would think. Often overlooked is a device that will not only fix many air problems, but also help to fix a number of other issues that can come up also. All this, while helping you to get higher efficiency from your oil burner.

The device called TigerLoop is a very ingenious piece of equipment that should be installed on every oil fired appliance that is installed. The air elimination feature is just one of the benefits of this device. Another of the benefits is that oil warming feature. The oil is returned back to the bowl instead if back to the tank. This gives the oil a chance to warm before it is burnt. This warm oil will burn just a bit better than cold oil.

When a TigerLoop is installed you only have to run one pipe from the tank to the burner. This makes installation easier or makes it possible to eliminate one pipe on a two pipe system if one becomes plugged or leaks. If you have more than one appliance running from the same lines this device provides a reservoir for the oil and cushions the flows if they both happen to start at once. I have installed a TigerLoop many times when there are multiple appliances. Although it is not recommended by the manufacturer, I can can tell you that it works and works very well when using more than one burner from the same line. If your line is too small when adding a burner the addition of this unit will get you out of a jam. Because of the way this unit works you only are pulling the oil needed for combustion through the line and not all the oil that the pumps are pumping.

The unit is very easy to install. Be sure to get flexible oil hose to install it with. They make the job very simple. Most anyone can unhook the existing lines and rehook the lines for the Loop.

Now for the best reason to install this little wonder. Have you ever had to bleed your burner because you ran out of oil? Say goodbye to that! Once the TigerLoop is install it will purge your air automatically. No more running oil out a little bleeder valve and making a mess!

There are so many benefits to having this unit that you simply cannot justify not having one on your oil fired appliance.

Have strong oil smell when riello 40 oil burner starts up

I looked at the drawings from this unit and it is completely sealed between the heat exchanger and supply air. So you should not smell oil at any time you have a leak some place look for that .

Do you see oil or water? If oil then the pump seal is broken and you need oil Tec to change the pump.

Our staff cleaned the fryer last night and left the pilot on without filling the oil. . The fryer was with no oil and pilot on overnight. Will it lead to problems or we have to take corrective action.

If the main burners didn't light there shouldn't be a problem. If the main burners came on there could be some damage to the tank but there is no corrective action that can be taken. If damage was done it will usually leak cooking oil when filled. Was the gas valve turned to "pilot" or "on"?

My fryer is leaking oil from the tube inside I have a Master Dean fryers

If you are leaking oil by one of the burner tubes you can replace the tank or get a new fryer. new tanks usually cost around 400 plus installation. Usually better to replace the fryer.

I am trying to bleed the furnace and nothing is coming out of the hose, why?

On the oil pump (left hand side of burner) there will ba a small bleeder screw with a 3/8" hex nut attached to it. Get a 2' length of clear hose and make sure itr fits tight in the bleeder. Put the other end in a coffee can or something. Have a helper turn up the thermostat to start the burner motor. At the same time unscrew the bleeder and watch for oil to flow out of the screw. The oil should not have any air bubbles in it. The safety control will time-out between 15 and 45 seconds and shut off the burner. When this happens, tighten the bleeder. You will have to reset the safety control by waiting a minute and depressing the red button. You may need to perform it again to get all the air out. If you are not getting any oil, you may have a plugged oil line, plugged oil filter, a kink in the oil line, a leak at a fitting upstream of the oil pump allowing the pump to **** air or a bad oil pump. There is also a small screen inside the oil pump accessible by removing the 6 Allen head screws on the end of the pump. You will need a pie pan to catch the oil and some thin gasket material to replace the oil seal between the end cap and oil pump. At this point you are on your way to being a top notch oil burner technician!
