    there is a sloted metal ring that allows you to change the amount of air that gets mixed with the gas. You could also have the wrong sized orfice in the burner, a brass fitting with a small hole. They are different size holes for LP and Nateral gas. Find the manual online and look for the type of gas you are using. There will be a "lettered" drill bit size shown for the burner BTU output. The orfice might of been replaced and wrong size put in when chaning the type of Gas you now have. "Lettered" (a-z) drill bits are somewhat hard to locate.

Flame is Orange? If so, propane is "choked", not enough air. Remove burners, clean each burner hole with a same size metal dowel (coat hanger works well) flush out inside of burner with garden hose, hi pressure air through all holes to dry. Replace burners ONLY after also cleaning chambers and chimney (garden hose and long brush). Do not forget to clean pilot light area too.
Most Imperials are pre-set air intake. Check gas pressure if able, 3" NG, 10" LPG. Good Luck

Black soot


Soot is caused by a few things in gas appliances. Propane even more so. Lack of combustion air is usually the culprit. In propane fired equipment orifice alignment, high pressure or the wrong burner orifice can cause yellow flames the result in soot build up. You need to find the culprit. Best to have a service tech check it out and clean it. when you know what to look for it can be easily fixed.

Deep fryer ignites but burner flames will not enter cylinders


Hi there.
Fire tubes may be clogged with soot. Have a technician inspect and clean the fire tubes for soot deposits/ build ups.
Check also if there is no air or ventilation directed on flue as it will push the flames back to the burners.
Regards.

Deep fryer catching on fire


From the video it appears many things could be wrong. The baffles and burner tubes could be clogged, the burner itself can be clogged, the flue is blocked, or this unit is using the wrong type of gas, ie: propane on a natural gas fryer.
Recommended steps for troubleshooting.
1. Verify proper gas type. Natural or Propane.
2. Check Burners, tubes, and baffles, clean all soot and debris from them.
3. Check for and remove any obstructions from the flue.

My Fryer Gives off a lot of Soot


Sounds like you may have the thermostat turned way too high.... If you don't, check to make sure it's working correctly, like is the temperature reading correct? Is your flue all junked up with build up and crud? If so, you will need to clean it out.... You can scrap it out with a dough scraper or anything else that works for you...Also, you might check your gas connections, or have your gas co check them, and see if there are any issues with the gas connection and the amount of gas coming into your fryer. Hope this helps you.

Recovery time


If the unit starts off fine, and then loses some of it's heat, I would suspect that your regulator is freezing up. This can be caused be a bad tank or regulator. You'll have to swap it out to test it.

If the gas supply is good (reg and tank), you need to inspect the heat exchange tubes. Look where the flame shoots through the fryer. Use a flashlight. Look for LARGE amounts of black soot. If it is sooty, blow it out with compressed air. Once you get it cleaned out, you need to add more air to your mix. There should be a disk at the base of the burner.

If you have access to a manometer and orifice drills, you could adjust the flame to it's maximum. But as I said, I expect you have a regulator problem.
