If the mechanical thermostat is set at temperature higher than the present oil temperature and does not "click" it is a bad thermostat and needs replacement. Clicking sound on thermostat indicates closing of the mechanical contacts.
Physically examine the thermostat capillary and sensing bulb, any puncture found indicates that it needs replacement.

Will the exhaust stack diameter cause rapid airflow to blow out the pilot?


The output flu should not impact this. What is impacting this is airflow from another source coming into the building. For example if a window is open on the windward side then airflow will rush in and exit through the flu. This could cause the problem. The other thing you should check is the gas pressure on the supply line. An indication that the gas pressure is too high is a gap between the end of the pilot jet and the base of the flame. Another concern is a venturi effect if the area between the hood and the fryer is too small.

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.

Why does my Pitco Frialator not heat to 350?


If your fryer has computer controller (the one with 8 product buttons and left, right arrow), check the display when you turn off the computer board, it should display "gas 2". If not, you have to change the gas configuration by accessing the programming mode.

My pitco gas frialator oil leak in tank .how can


You need to identify where the leak is coming.
If the leak is on the fry tank, best way to address it is to replace the oil tank.
Check the serial number of the unit with leak on fry tank, verify if it is still under warranty at PITCO web on http://www.middleby.com.

Pitco Frialator SF14 pilot will light and the burners will light but within an hour it completely shuts off (pilot and burners). The high limit and thermostat have been changed 1 month ago.


Check the hi limit sensing bulb, it should not touch the fire tube, when it does, it will sense high temperature which will trip its mechanical contacts and will shut pilot and burner flames.
Make also sure that the thermopile is free of soot or any form of dirt and is properly heated by the pilot flame.

This is caused by a failing pilot safty bypass inside the gas valve itself. You will need to replace the gas valve.
