Hello

To see if this is leaking you can make a soap solution of 1 tablespoon of dishwashing soap to 1 cup of water to see if it bubbles. Just apply it around the knob on the gas valve or pilot valve.If it bubbles it is leaking and will need replaced. This will rule out a draft of air coming from somewhere else.


Hope this helps

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
Regards.

I have a pitco 35c fryer the pilot light will light but the flame is very low it goes out when i release the controll the pilot light adjustment has no effect on flame i have the right amount of fuel...


Check and clean the thermopile, it is the cylindrical piece of metal standing behind the pilot assembly.Try also to tighten its wiring connections to the gas valve and high limit.If it does not correct the problem, replace the thermopile.

My pilot light is out on pitco 35cs fryer, i cant locate it to relight it


Pilot assembly is located between the two middle burners, this is where the pilot is lighted. You have to turn the gas valve knob to pilot position then push it while lighting the pilot assembly.

I am converting a pitco model 14c fryer from nat gas to propane, and am wondering where does the pilot oriface install at. It looks like a small cap with a hole in the end. Thanks Jim


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

Pitco frialator (propane)


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.

Lighting the fryer


If this is a milivolt unit, meaning no solid-state or computer/digital controlled. You would need to turn your gas valve to the pilot position, then press in and hold until you can light the pilot using a lighter (this may take several minutes, to bleed the air from gas supply) once there is a pilot flame present, you will need to hold the valve button in for about 45 seconds to heat the thermalpile. Once pilot is lit, thene turn to on position and proceeed to turning thermostate to set temp.

Replace thermostats for Pitco 35c


Replacing the t'stat can be hard. I would first evaluate the cost of the vat. Do you have any leaks now in it? I would replace the t'stats. The cost is much less than the cost of even a used one.
