Question about Pitco Frialator SG14 Deep Fryer

1 Answer

Burner Welds I have been using Keating Fryers for years but the burner tube welds keep cracking and releasing shortning (there are shields that are supposed to keep some of the heat away from the welds but they don't solve the problem). I have replaced many fry "pots." Do Pitco Fryalators have a better tube design and how often can I expect to replace the fryer pot (vessel) because burner tube welds break? Joe

You have your burners misaligned with the tubes. Re-align the burners and the welds will hold up fine.

What are most common problems found with pitco frialator fryers?

Some of the most common problems with Pitco fryers is failed Hi-Limit thermostats, carbon build up on burner tubes, and dirty or clogged burners. This hi-limit thermostat is mounted inside the fry tank on one of the burners. Often the cappillary tubes are damaged or broken during cleaning causing the limit to fail. The hi-limit is the most common part I replace on Pitco fryers. The other common items are self explanitory. Keep the fryer clean in all areas, including burners and tubes. You will see the repair man less often.

Yes the best option for just for you is to buy a new burner,tube kit and a new manifold kit because all the things that you said you removed from the burner must have caused alot of rust on the burner and if you keep welding the burner there will still be linkage after awhile so the best thing is just for u replace the burner.

It could a heat shield on the exhaust system. The heat shields are spot welded on to the exhaust pipe and as time goes by the welds break. Now, instead of the shield being welded in a couple places to secure it it's being held on by one or two welds and it rattles from time to time. I could be wrong, good luck.

Loose heat shield

Most likely it's a heat sheild on the converter, maybe the muffler. 1 on top and 1 on the bottom. The heat sheild is welded to the converter, over time they rust away, around the welds. You can use a large diameter worm gear clamp to keep the heat sheild from rattling. The sheilds are in place so if you drive over grass, the heat from the converter won't ignite the grass.
