Large flame just above orifice

You have a clogged burner. It probably has carbon build up and that's pushing the gas outside the tube to burn. If you can remove the burner you can flush it out with water. Beware, it's messy. You will get carbon black all over everything.

Bypass Brinkmann Turkey Fryer Thermocouple

I bought my fryer in November 2010 and it worked good for that Thanksgiving. Went to use it this year and thermocuople kept shutting off. So I used a brick to kep red button pressed in. What a pain.

After turkey day I removed my thermocouple and installed a direct conection.

I'm not sure about the exact thread size the Brinkman hose end and brass fitting on burner uses. I tried using a 1/16" NPT fitting but it is incorrect. However, I found 8mm threads to be the closet. Use thread sealant and it works great!

I bought a McMaster-Carr p/n 93590A220; Metric 18-8 Stainless Steel Coupling Nut M8 Screw Sz, 1.25mm Pitch, 38mm Length, 16mm Width, $7.95. and used it to connect the hose end to brass fitting on burner.

Yes this is considered a safety risk so modify at your own risk. No one I know of ever walks away druing use.

Starts to light but goes right out

Vaporized propane sounds just like air coming through a hose. Turkey fryers use a different regulator than a standard barbecue which uses a low pressure -- 11" water column displacement. Pressure for a BBQ is measured in displacement because LP pressure is very low, less than half one pound PSI. Turkey fryers use a higher pressure so more gas is able to feed to the burner but the regulator diaphragm adjusts because of the adjustment wheel. However, before determining the regulator needs to be replaced, adjust the air shutter on the venturi and ensure the orifice is clear. LP must be mixed with air in the burner in order to burn but if the shutter is open too much we can hear air-flow and too much air can definitely cause that sound and cause flames to blow out. We have a video at you---e showing the adjustment with too much air blowing-out the flames. First check your connections and orifice to make sure there are no leaks or impediments. Second restart the burner with the air shutter almost closed and continue making adjustments -- while burning if possible. If neither of those work replace the pressure regulator. Most people will initially say replace the regulator but they do not go bad as often as many think; a regulator is only a open space that limits him much gas can travel through at any time.

My flame keeps on going out on my turkey fryer it has a heat sensor on it how do i position the sensor so the flame doesnt go out

The heat sensor for your turkey fryer is preset to 375 degrees F. Once the oil reaches that temperature, the sensor turns the flame OFF, so that the oil will not boil over and ignite. Once the oil cools to 325 degrees F, the burner can be relighted . Use extreme caution when relighting the burner. Altering or repositioning the heat sensor would make the fryer unsafe to operate.

I'm sorry. I which I had better news for you. Always, err on the side of caution & safety when dealing with open gas flames.

My pitco 35 c the flame is burning yellow and not going inside the very wall i thought it might be the regulator pressure on the fryer on the back side

Low gas pressure will produce low flame quality (yellow flame).
Check and remove any dirt or soot on burner holes, and orifice
Burner flame not going inside the fire tube could be due to soot or carbon build up inside the fire tube blocking the flame path, check the inside of the fire tube, if considerable amount of soot is seen, better have them removed.
Yellow flame will cause a lot of problem on fryers if not corrected as soon as possible.
If you have doubt on your gas regulator, better have a qualified service technician to check it.

Turkey fryer is burning rich w/ yellow flame and cannot be regulated to blue by air mix plates

first check the gas regulator is the presher right? then try cleaning out all the pipe work and the burner jets i bet you have a dead spider stuck in the gas pipe as it enters the burners,,this would upset the air to gas mix,,so its running on a rich gas mix

Flame not going into heat tubes

Make sure the regulator assembly on the gas valve is for propane. Sounds like the gas pressure is too low and the flames aren't going into the burner tubes. Make sure they didn't install an appliance regulator on the back of the fryer. This is not needed as the fryer has a regulator on the gas valve. You can unscrew the cap on the regulator assembly and turn the plastic screw inside all the way in. DO not turn with alot of force. Easy does it.

Tried to use my turkey fryer and could only get a yellow flame. Never had a problem getting that nice blue flame before. Do I have a reg problem or a burner prob??

Check your propane tank first; is it getting close to being empty? Check where the hose connects to the burner, there should be an air adjustment there; it looks like a rotating disc with two big holes on either side, this is turned when the burner is lit to adjust the amount of air mixing with the gas. If it's all the way open, you have a yellow flame, if it's closed all the way you have a blue (but weak) flame. Try adjusting that and if that doesn't work, try a different is rare a regulator could cause this but it could cause it; just use that as your last resort.
