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.

check the supplier for the conversion kit.the kit contains burner orifice, pilot orifice and gas valve spring which are commonly needed for conversion from propane to natural gas or from natural gas to propane.
****natural gas orifice has larger bore than propane, gas valve spring for propane is thicker than for natural gas.

No gas will come out when lighting pilot


There are almost always procedures and directions posted near the gas control for all gas fired units, whether it be deep fryers or home furnaces. The details are spelled out very plainly. If you are holding the large red button down, and you don't get any gas after a minute or so, you may have a malfunctioning gas valve, or a small piece of dirt in the pilot orifice. If this is the first time trying to light the unit after installation, it takes quite a while to fill the pipe carrying the gas to the valve, then to get the gas through the valve and into the pilot unit so it may be lit.
If it's been in use right along and it's now decided to be ornery, then I'd bet on the debris in or on the pilot unit itself, which you can clean with a couple of pipe cleaners. If it's the just been installed scenario then you just have to be patient till the gas gets there.

Pilot stays lit but when you turn on temp switch pilot gets very low and burners will not light


has orifice been changed? Is this a used fryer that may have previously operated on LP gas? If so, there will be insufficient volume of gas (Nat) to the burner. Also check supply pressure at unit. Make sure supply line isn't damaged or distorted in that it may restrict flow to fryer.

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

I am going to purchace a deep fryer from a resteruant and would to know if they can be converted to use propane gas


Yes. The burner orifices and the pilot orifice need to be changed. Also, the regulator or regulator spring needs to be changed on the gas valve.... depends on the brand. That's it.

I have purchase 2 used FMP 40BSS fryers - originally Nat Gas - i want to convert them to LP - what is needed and can i do it myself?


To convert these to LP you must downsize the burner orifices and the pilot orifice. Also you must change the regulator on the gas valve to LP. Easy job.

Do you have instructions on how to convert a deep fryer to LP I have a Pitco 35cs I need to convert to LP


Visit http://www.middleby.com and go to PITCO web, you will be able to locate there the nearest authorized parts dealer on your area and ask for the conversion kit (from nat to lp). The gas valve conversion kit consists of spring, cap and instruction manual. you also need to replace the burner and pilot orifice, Nat pilot and burner orifice have larger bore than lp.

Can not get pilot to stay on. will light while pushed and will not stay on when let go


First, if you have just installed the unit or have had the gas line off, it will take a few min's for the air in the gas line to be replaced with gas.
If it just started doing this, I would first clean the pilot and orifice. If this does not fix it, it can only be one of two things. A bad gas valve or a bad regulator. I think that you have a bad gas valve. The regulator very rarely goes bad.

Change from natural gas to propane


1.You will need to change the pilot orifice and the burner orifices
2. You may need to change the gas control valve. Some gas control valves are made for natural gas and some are made for LP. They have regulators built-in, that deliver the correct pressure respectively. Natural gas is 3.5 inches of water column, LP is 10 inches of water column.
Some manufacturers sell kits to change the spring in the regulator from Nat to LP
You would need a parts breakdown on the specific model number of your fryer to find the parts you need. Hope this helps.
