Where the pilot light is should be a small copper tube connected to a smaller copper tube that goes back to the main gas valve. It's called a thermocouple. That's what tells the main gas valve the pilot is lit and allows the main burner to come on only when the pilot is burning so it doesn't flood the room with gas. The thermocouple is most likely bad. They usually have them at hardware stores like ace or you can have a professional replace it. It's fairly simple, if you do it yourself, bring the old one with you to the hardware store.

Pitco fryer ignitor lights the pilot but goes out after we let go


Are you holding it in long enough? It takes between 20 seconds-1 minute.

If it still doesn't stay lit, replace the thermocouple.

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
Regards.

Fryer wont stay lit, only two burners will lite, and will only stay lit for about 5 min. will then go out and must start over


Check the gas pressure, it must meet the standard gas pressure written on the nameplate. Check also the quality of pilot flame, poor pilot flame quality will not properly heat up the thermopile which in turn will result in poor fryer operation.

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"?

I have a SG14T-JS that has six burners. They all light and stay on for about 10 seconds and then they go out. I cleaned the spark ignitor and cleaned the gas valve connection. Do you have any ideas? ...


Hi there.
Make sure that the gas supply has the same rating and type as written on the nameplate.
Check also the gap of the spark ignitor to the pilot. Spark ignitor also acts as flame sensor for pilot flame proving, it if could not properly sense/ detect pilot flame (in case pilot flame weakens during operation due to low gas supply), it will shut the burners.
Regards.

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.

The oven pilot does not light. The broiler will not work. The only thing that does is the light. GE XL44 range. The burners light and the pilots stay lit.


    If you have standing pilots, make sure the pilot for the oven/broiler is lit as well.  When you turn the thermostat up to call for heat, you should see the pilot get larger. That larger pilot flame heats a hydraulic sensor and opens the main burner valve.
