The pilot light is attached directly to the front of the pot near one of the burners. You will see one small gas line and a set of wires. Loosen the nut where the gas line goes into the pilot light. You will have to hold the pilot light as well as turning the nut on the line. Pull the line from the pilot light assembly. Sometimes the pilot orifice comes out with the line and other times it stays stuck in the pilot light. If it is stuck take a small blade like a pocket knife and pry it out. put the new one in and tight it all back up

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..

Instuctions on how to change a pitco fryer from nat gas to propane


Hi there!
You need to order a gas valve conversion kit (from nat to propane), propane pilot orifice and propane burner orifice,
Gas valve conversion kit consists of a replacement spring thicker than of natural gas valve spring, gas valve cap and a sticker.
Pilot orifice for propane has smaller bore than of natural.
Burner orifice for propane has also smaller bore than of natural burner orifice (one for each burner).
You will be able to find these parts on the list of Pitco Distributor when you visit http://www.pitco.com

When the pilot light button is released the flame goes out. (pitco propane fryer) - unsure of model number as data plate is worn. Does the thermopile need replacing ?


Try first to clean the thermopile. If it has accumulated soot/ carbon, it will not sense enough heat from the pilot flame to generate small amount of electricity to energize the pilot valve and main valve of gas valve.

Check if the flame quality of the pilot is good. Small amount of voltage generated by thermopile used in energizing pilot main valve coil during fryer operation relies on the quality of pilot flame, also, the thermopile itself should be free of soot or any form of dirt in order for it to absorb the heat from pilot flame.
Check also the gas pressure, it should meet the gas pressure required on the nameplate.

Better check the incoming gas pressure first, it should match the requirement as stated on the nameplate. Low gas pressure will make the pilot flame small until it could not heat up the thermopile which will shut both main burner and pilot flame.
