The gas valve has a regulator on it....but there must be a regulator at the tank that steps it down from tank pressure to operating pressure. Operating pressure for LP is less than 1/2 psi. If you are using this for a trailer....a 40 lb tank would be best.

Flames cominhg out of flue


Hi I use to repair every kind of restaurant equipment under the sun..maybe I can help...Is this a new install of the fryer and it never did this before, or did this just start do this..If a new install, the first thing I would check is the gas regulator and see if it is for Nat gas or Lp gas, and find that out..cause it has to match what you have, comming into the building..usuall the gas valve has a sticker on it that says what the water columbs are like for Nat it is like 3-6, and for Lp(propane) it is like 5-12. Ive seen customers buy a used fryer, and install a LP fryer in a Natural gas build, and the valve lets too much gas to the burners, and it will shoot flames out the top..then you would have to buy and convert a gas valve, or use parts to convert it..let me know further..

I have a Vulcan deep fryer. Converting from gas to LP. Changed out the orifices. Bought high pressure propane regulator. No smell of propane into fryer. Plug unit in and no power to electric...


Hi There. You have not mentioned that you also replaced the spring inside the gas valve suited for propane, please check. I strongly advise not to modify the unit's ignition system nor bypass safety device, this is for your own good. Check the gas valve spring first.

Does the Elite EFS-40 have a built in regulator?


Thanks for the Question! If you are referring to a internal Gas regulator this model comes with a option for Natural Gas or Propane.
So you will need to make sure that you have to correct gas connection for the Fryer. If you look at the Gas valave it will state whether it's NG (natural gas or LP liquified petroleum).
So if a NG valve it must be connected to Natural Gas. and Vise versa.
Installing a NG Fryer to propane will result in a dangerous situation because of the pressure difference.
If you are requesting information for a different type of regulator please let me know and I can give you the information you need.
Thanks for using Fixya.com I hope this answers you question.

I have a small counter top fryer set up for lp gas how do i change to nat


check the supplier for the conversion kit.the kit contains burner orifice, pilot orifice and gas valve spring which are commonly needed for conversion from propane to natural gas or from natural gas to propane.
****natural gas orifice has larger bore than propane, gas valve spring for propane is thicker than for natural gas.

Hi, i am trying to convert my cecilware fryer "FMS 403 HP" to bottled propane, i have been advised i may need a valve.??? can you help?


you will be needing a gas regulator (available at local hardware)when connecting the unit to a bottled propane.you will also need a conversion kit if your unit is designed for natural gas consumption.contact the manufacturer if ever you need a conversion kit.

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.

Change from natural gas to propane


1.You will need to change the pilot orifice and the burner orifices
2. You may need to change the gas control valve. Some gas control valves are made for natural gas and some are made for LP. They have regulators built-in, that deliver the correct pressure respectively. Natural gas is 3.5 inches of water column, LP is 10 inches of water column.
Some manufacturers sell kits to change the spring in the regulator from Nat to LP
You would need a parts breakdown on the specific model number of your fryer to find the parts you need. Hope this helps.
