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

for the latest design of pitco frialator, the manufacturer added what they called the self-cleaning burner system.during start-up, ignition is delayed so that dust accumulating in the burner face will be removed once the gas build up on burner chamber ignites, it creates a weak explosion like sound.the next time you hear that during start up, the unit is cleaning its own burner, no need to worry.

.poilit light on but not burnner on even i turn


Check if the gas valve knob is set at "ON" position after lighting the pilot. Check also it the thermopile is receiving enough heat from pilot flame and try also to tighten all wiring connections on gas valve, thermostat and hi limit. If these do not seem to correct the problem, you have to replace the thermopile.

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.

Have you tried adjusting pilot light or recalibrating your thermostat? it sounds similar to the problem i just had, but replacing the thermopile worked for me, but i also replaced my thermostat and high limit switch prior to the thermopile.I also made sure all my connections were cleaned. i'm not an expert by the way just someone who went through the same problem.

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.

Pitco Fryer will not light up


Check the thermopile, it must be free of dirt or soot so that it can absorb enough heat from pilot flame and in turn can generate the right amount of voltage to energize pilot and burner coils.
Check also the gas pressure, it should be of standard as required on the unit's nameplate.

Long recovery time during busy times have a sg 14s fryer


Make sure you have a nice blue flame in burner the more yellow that it is the less heat it put out. To adjust the flame there are air control slides on the burners there the flame comes out. Open or close them to get the proper setting. You will see the flame go yellow and blue, the bluer the better. The gas pressure could be off which you have to check with a manometer 3 lbs per water column on natural gas and 11 lbs. on l.p. gas. Check the gas valve inlet screen for dirt. If the burner system is operating properly then you have a bad or dirty t-stat
