SOURCE: pitco fryer sg14R not turn on at all

The hi limit must be tripped. Open the door and find a swich that has a really small red button on it and push it in. If it clicks, it was tripped. If not, with the door open bend way down and look up whare the top of the door is when closed. You will find a small black fuse holder. Push up as you turn, and pull out. Check to see if the fuse is blown, if it is replace with the SAME SIZE & RATING. DO NOT USE TIN FOIL.

I have had 8 pitco gas self-filtering fryers for 10 years. I'm not sure what the model they are, but hopefully it won't matter. Recently, especially after boiling out, we have had a problem with...

Two things when you clean out the pots.....Number one is, make sure you rinse all the soap or cleaning solution out really well, and I mean WELL... any left over residue will ruin your new oil, and number two, your oil temp should never be above 325, especially with new oil.... Sounds like you are burning your oil up with too high of a temperature. Actually, there is another option here too,
have you ever tried a fryer additive? Like Miroil is one....? You add this liquid prior to lunch or dinner, according to how much oil is in the fryer, how many hours a day the fryer is on and how many days a week you are open....Anyway, if you are interested, we could help you with the formula, and from that point on, you never dump a whole vat of oil again. Each day, you would drain off a pre-measured amount of oil, and lets say you have a chicken fryer, and a fish fryer. You would drain off the chicken fryer and dump into the fish fryer, and put the same exact amount back into the chicken fryer of new oil. It might be a 2 cup measurement or alittle more, but the point is by freshing your fryer each day, you will never dump it all out again. They also recommend oil temp at 325, no higher, and making sure all soap residue is rinsed out completely before adding any oil.
By doing this, your oil will look golden all week long, and you will no longer have the darker oil as the week goes by, with the really dark, crappy stuff right before you end up dumping it...Hence, your products will always look the same too, light golden, absorb alot less grease during cooking, and again, that's all week long, not just first part of the week....If you are interested in trying the additive, I can price you some, or you can go online yourself? Not one person I have ever set up on this additive program has ever complained or stopped using it so far...They love it, and it really works.

If you have new thermostats and a high limit switch, you might have had a bad thermostat before, and your temperature was really alittle lower with the older one? Now, that you have a new one, and it's working correctly, maybe that 350 is too hot? If the other one was bad, and running alittle less hot, say 300 or 325 all along, and you just never knew it, now you have one that's registering your temperature at the correct reading and it's too hot? Or, another scenerio could be your tech installed a bad thermostat? That happens too, where a new thermostat is actually bad to start with, and maybe it's off alittle the other way? LIke 350 is actually 450? If you have other questions, or are interested in the additive, my name is Susan, with Restaurant Equipment Outlet, 888-542-5959 and I would be happy to asist you in any way, and I'd love to know what you end up finding out on your fryers.... Thanks, Susann REO

How do i clean the buildup in my heat tubes on a pitco 35c fryolater. the buildup ignites and burns. wire brush?

Certainly, you can use a specially designed wire brush for cleaning the tubes... We sell them ourseles, however first I would recommend using a product called Deep Fat Fryer Cleaner. It comes in either a liquid or a powder, and is mixed with water, directly in the stainless frypot itself. You then turn up the heat, and boil the mixture for awhile. There will be directions on the product....You fryer brush is shaped like a small L so you can reach all around the tube area and in the drain area as well. By using the boil out product first, you will loosen up all that baked on crud and get rid of some of it, and keep in mind, that with commercial equipment and the crud that builds up.... You have to get the equipment warm before you can effectively clean it. A griddle must be turned o n to warm, a fryer also. Be sure when you are done, to rinse all the soap **** out of the ss pot. If not, you will ruin the next batch of oil that you use and with the price of that stuff, you don't want to take a chance on doing that. I also recommend a fryer additive from Miroil... It keeps you from ever dumping a whole vat of oil again. You can go online and look over the product information, and if you are interested, I can give you pricing, as it comes in a powder or a liquid. It keeps your product golden all week long, no golden brown at the lst of the week and darker product as the week goes on... You will have consistent golden brown product all week long, period... Miroil also recommends keeping your oil temp to 325 or below... Most people use 350 and it's too hot and ends up burning up the oil. That and the soap **** not getting rinsed out completely are what deteriates your oil and runis it. Those brushes are manufactured to take high heat without hurting them and they run $23.50 each. I also have straight brushes too. The miroil additive runs $29.95 a litre bottle, which will do 55 applications for a 50# fryer. (You use different amounts for different size fryers, and it makes a difference on how many days a week you are open and how many hours the fryers are on). A 3 pack runs $88.95. I also have the powder deep fat fryer cleaner, which comes in a 9 lb jug, for $11.95. I also carry Mr. Muscle individual liquid packets of deep fat fryer clean for $1.95 each. You just dump one in the fryer, along with your water and boil it, then rinse well.

I hope that's not too much overload... Somtimes I forget to stop and breath... If you have any other questions, please call us at 888-542-5959. We're in Cincinnati, Ohio, but ship everywhere. Our website is and email is Thanks, Susan

Possible heat seizure

sounds like it's time for a new starter then do a flush on your oil system and get a new filter in it and good quality oil then see what happens and keep close eye on oil / you may have coolant getting in the block ( head gasket or cracked block ) a garage can test that .possibly a weak oil pump .take plugs out and spin it fast and see if coolant comes out sparkplug holes if there is it all has to get ripped apart
dont give up get the top end checked out .before it becomes major .

Star deep fryer.

Those thermostat bulbs are the thermostat and hi-limit bulbs.They need to be secured to the fryer.The hi limit is tripping out because its sensing that the oil is too hot.Even though the oil isnt that hot the hi limit thinks it is.

Fryer will not turn on

There's a red reset button that you need to press, it is hidden deep inside a well in the plastic piece. The well looks just like a screw hole until you know what to look for. Once you press it and your power supply is attched right you are golden.

Oil doesn't stay hot

check the thermostat bulb that's in the oil. make sure there are no kinks in the tubing as there is a gas inside the cappillary that expands when it is heated. it connects to the thermostat inside the unit. the thermostat has a thin diaphragm inside that presses against a switch to turn the elements on and off.
