Question about Pitco Frialator Kitchen Appliances - Others
It depends on where it is leaking. If the oil is coming out around the threads where the valve screws onto the fryer, you can remove it and put teflon tape on the threads on the fryer and then put the valve back on tightly. If it is dripping through the valve when it is closed, you need to replace the valve. The only thing you need to match up is that it has the same threads and that it is a high temperature valve. Most Pitco fryers use inch and a half pipe threads. Pipe threads are weird, inch and a half pipe actually measures 1.9 inches outside to outside of the threads. The temperature range is up to 500 degrees F. Check with your nearest restaurant supply company. They can order you a new valve if that is what you need.

Trace the deposits in the natural direction of waterflow (against gravity or centrifugal force) back to the source of the leak. Fill the machine again and run it through a cycle or two. Be patient; use your eyes and your brains. There is no magic, easy way to detect a leak.
The usual places are:
WATER VALVE: The guts of the fill solenoid valve sometimes will corrode. You may see water leaking from, or rust on the top of the solenoid. (See figure G-7A) Since the valves only open during a fill cycle, this may appear as an intermittent leak. The solution is to replace the valve.
PUMP: Usually from around the pulley seal. Some washer pumps have a hole that allows water to weep out when the seal starts to go bad. The solution is to replace or rebuild the pump.
BLEACH DISPENSERS: Bleach is VERY hard on plastic parts. If the bleach dispenser gets old and brittle, it can crack or break off, and the flush water can leak out.
