Question about Pitco Frialator SG14 Deep Fryer
I have 2 SG-14s and the wire screen at the end of the burners where they hook up to the tank tubes seem to get clogged or burnt looking, causing the fryer to backfire when I turn up the thermostat or turn on the valve quickly. If I take them out and rinse them off, the fryers will start up like new for about a month at max. I even ordered new burners, and that didn't help the problem any further. I'm wondering if this is a design problem and if anyone else has had this same problem. Any suggestions? Thanks, Rick
I seen this problem over and over again, the best and simplest way to fix if to just clean your burners. Removed one by one and get them clean with hot pressure water. Most of the time, this easy and fast job will resolve the problem, and don't forget, get those burners cleaned every 6 mos. It requires a 1/2 in socket.

I blow the tubes out with co2 gas runs much cleaner and better performance

I HAVE A FRYER SAME MODEL THAT WHEN IT CALLS TO FIRE IT MAKES A VERY LOUD EXPLOSION SOUND.THE PILOT LITES THE GAS COMES ON AND THEN IT EXPLODES BLOWING OUT THE PILOT,IT WILL DO THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN.EVERYTHING IS CLEAN.MY THOUGHTS ARE THE GAS VALVE IS NOT OPENING ALL THE WAY TO GIVE THE THRUST OF GAS THAT IT NEEDS.

These screens will need cleaned around a 90 day interval It would appear that your problem may be unburned fuel deposits. with a manometer check to verify that the manifold pressures match those on the ID plate. You can either take this reading off the lower side of the gas valve or at the end of the manifold or the center of the manifold depending on your model. After this has been checked you need to check the primary air intakes. you can adjust the air intakes untill you have a blue flame w/white or light blueish looking tips.
