First off make sure you get the OEM pitco t-stat.
1. Unplug all power sources from the fryer.
2. Remove all oil or shortening from the fry pot.
3.Remove the sensing bulb from the brackets inside the fry pot.
4.There will be a double compression fitting entering the fry pot from inside the control area, remove both of these compression fittings.
5. Slide the sensing bulb and cap tube out of the opening in the fry pot.
6. Remove the mounting hardware holding the old t-stat to the cabinet
7.Disconnect the wires on the backside of the t-stat (Make sure to note the wire locations)
8.Connect the wires to the new t-stat.
9Repeat the order in reverse to reinstall the new t-stat
When you connect the larger compression fitting to the frypot make sure that you get a pipe sealant that is rated to 600 deg. F
any high heat pipe sealant for stainless steel should suffice for this.

Would Pitco 35C+ still heat if bulb/capillary of control thermostat breaks?

Hi there.

The unit will not fire up if the capillary of thermostat is broken or punctured because the thermostat's mechanical contact will remain open.

After we used our fryer last time, there was a soot build up on our exhaust. Just tested it again, and it seems to be running really hot. Do we need a new thermostat? How much is a thermostat?

Soot is formed when fuel combustion is incomplete. Check if the gas pressure is sufficient and of correct type (natural or propane gas). Thermostat can be checked by observing if the burner flame goes off when the oil temperature reached the thermostat setting. Price can be checked at pitco website on

What are most common problems found with pitco frialator fryers?

Some of the most common problems with Pitco fryers is failed Hi-Limit thermostats, carbon build up on burner tubes, and dirty or clogged burners. This hi-limit thermostat is mounted inside the fry tank on one of the burners. Often the cappillary tubes are damaged or broken during cleaning causing the limit to fail. The hi-limit is the most common part I replace on Pitco fryers. The other common items are self explanitory. Keep the fryer clean in all areas, including burners and tubes. You will see the repair man less often.

Fryer smokes at 350 with new shorting and we fryed chicken at 350 and it got to done on the outside and raw on inside also the thermostat is not screwed down to the holder whats going

Hi there.
You may need to check the calibration of your fryer in to verify if the thermostat regulates the oil temperature as set on its dial. As for the thermostat body, it should be mounted properly to avoid movement that which could break the capillary.
You can download Pitco Fryer Owner's Manual which includes calibration procedure at

The fryer is a pitco 35cs can u tell me y it heats up to 550 and shuts the pilot down

It shuts down because it is tripping the high limit. Apply a soap solution to the lines going from the gas valve to the thermostat. If bubbles appear there is a leak and needs to be corrected. If no bubbles appear then the thermostat is probably your problem.
