Question about Pitco Frialator SG14 Deep Fryer

1 Answer

I have a SG14T-JS that has six burners. They all light and stay on for about 10 seconds and then they go out. I cleaned the spark ignitor and cleaned the gas valve connection. Do you have any ideas? Thanks

Hi there.
Make sure that the gas supply has the same rating and type as written on the nameplate.
Check also the gap of the spark ignitor to the pilot. Spark ignitor also acts as flame sensor for pilot flame proving, it if could not properly sense/ detect pilot flame (in case pilot flame weakens during operation due to low gas supply), it will shut the burners.
Regards.

Xl44 top burners light


There are a few things that can do this... First check the burner top to make sure the holes are not blocked. 2nd, Are the other ignitors sparking? If so then try rotating the slack in the burners left and right - this works sometimes. If not then try placing a screwdriver (you holding the handle only) and touch the burner and lean the screwdriver towards the ignitor... making the spark gap smaller. If you have used the ignition without a burner in place the ignition pack will short out inside it and there will not be a spark until the gap is very small. 3rd, are the ceramic part of the ignitors cracked at the base... take care when washing as they break easy if caught on the cloth. The ignition pack works in pairs so having one work suggests the pair of this one is something in the lead if there is no spark... A huge spillover causing a short or a bad earth... check the burners are firmly in place. There is more but too much detail to post here. Good luck

I have the star burner model, w/ extra-low simmer. The center burner will not light at all by itself. The right rear burner will self-ignite if you turn it to low, and then slowly rotate the knob clockwise...


Center burner won't light: If there is a bright spark (check all ignitor points at night with the lights out and look for consistent brightness of the sparks) then it's likely that the burner slots are dirty or the air/gas mix is wrong. If you can light with a match, but the spark won't light, then go for cleaning the entire burner assembly thoroughly with a brass bristle brush (available at most automotive stores). The proper air/gas mix has to flow over the spark to ignite. Weak spark, improper air/gas or misdirected gas flow that misses the spark can all cause this issue.

RR burner lights only on low setting. Again, check the air gas mix and clean all parts. Something like a small spider web inside the air mix chamber (area between the orifice and the burner can cause this and is difficult to see. Disassemble, clean thoroughly, reassemble and test. Extra low simmer burners (two on the left side) use their own control module with electric gas valves and variable electric control switches. The burner works on low, so these are not likely the problem.

Most folks want to find a bad part, and that can happen, but stove tops get dirty and cleaning usually helps. If not, you have a clean top to work on.

The indicator lens and/or the retainer are either broken or the retainer is missing. It's best to replace these as they are not expensive. When the top is off while cleaning is an perfect time to replace the lens.

Viking gas stove top ignitors sparking incorrectly


all ignitors spark at the same time no matter which burner is turned on. If you are having trouble with one burner not lighting try cleaning around the ignitor with a small screw driver so the spark has a good path to ground.

Hi, I replaced the right side ignitor module and now the ignitors spark vigorously and the burners light but the ignitors won't spot sparking and sometimes keep sparking several seconds after I turn off...


There are a few things to check for. Make sure the electrode ( the small metal piece that the spark comes off from ) is clean and the holes in the burner are clean, use a pin or paper clip to clean out the burner holes and NOT a tooth pick as these can break off and make things worse. The next thing to check for are theignition switches under the surface control knobs, the switches can twist and break and keep the spark module on and the spark keeps "clicking" even when the burner is light. If every thing looks good, you may have a bad spark module, replace it. Sometimes cleaning can get moisture into the surface switches, try drying them with an hair dryer to see of this will help.

thanks.keep updated and please do accept the solution.

VDSC 365-40, Suspected right side ignitor box bad. Repairman came, obviously didn't know Viking, tore into unit and confirmed bad ignitor box. Estimated $450 to repair. I put in new box myself. Works...


You have to identify the thermocouple by the flame. Some units run sparks constantly to insure that tha flame stays lit. If you see the thermocouple bulb by the flame it is bad and needs replaced (he may have bypassed it also let me know)

It would be helpful if you have a multi meter. Sorry you are having trouble with the repair man. I hope I can talk you through this but if he has made a mess it could be 10 times more work for you. Txtooltime@aol.com

Sears kenmore gas dryer 417.92052101does not stay lit.


Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow. If it glows for several seconds (up to 15 seconds) and then goes out, then the problem is probably the solenoids (coils). If the ignitor glows and stays on, then the problem is usually the flame sensor.

My tappan oven will not always light


for the top burners you have to get to see the ignitors so that you can see the spark,the spark have to spark like a spark plug in the car, it most be on the tip of the ignitor.if not. the spark it's sparking on the wroung spot,wires may be wet or broken. thats one of the reason, the second one,there is small holes fasing the spark ignition on the burners when grease blocks them, they will not light, you can clean them with a paper clip or a safety pin. for the oven,some ovens do not have the spark sistem, they have the ignitor wich it looks like a small bar about 4 inches long by 1 inch some of them are round. thats the part that needs replacing
