You need to clean the burners and the fire tubes, remove all carbon deposits.running the unit on low gas pressure results in carbon build up on burners and fire tubes.

We have a PitCo fryer that has started sooting everything up above it such as the vent hood. By the end of the day things above it are really black


If it is burning with a sooty flame it means there is not enough air being burned with the propane. You can check around where the jet enters the burner tube, but my advice is to get it professionally serviced by a registered gas fitter, as as well as soot it is giving off carbon monoxide.

Are Propane LPG fryers compatible with Butane LpG


Talk to the manufacturer or check your owners manual. The jets in the burner must be slightly smaller for butane. The flame will burn yellow with black soot/smoke if you don't change them.

Black soot


Soot is caused by a few things in gas appliances. Propane even more so. Lack of combustion air is usually the culprit. In propane fired equipment orifice alignment, high pressure or the wrong burner orifice can cause yellow flames the result in soot build up. You need to find the culprit. Best to have a service tech check it out and clean it. when you know what to look for it can be easily fixed.

My pitco 35 c the flame is burning yellow and not going inside the very wall i thought it might be the regulator pressure on the fryer on the back side


Low gas pressure will produce low flame quality (yellow flame).
Check and remove any dirt or soot on burner holes, and orifice
Burner flame not going inside the fire tube could be due to soot or carbon build up inside the fire tube blocking the flame path, check the inside of the fire tube, if considerable amount of soot is seen, better have them removed.
Yellow flame will cause a lot of problem on fryers if not corrected as soon as possible.
If you have doubt on your gas regulator, better have a qualified service technician to check it.

Black smoke coming out of flue and two burners burn yellow flames while the other burns blue some fumes


First.. the burner tubes need to be cleanes...sounds like a few have soot build up. Messy job...do outside with a hose. Check the burner orifice size to make sure they are all the same.

Soot build up


Flame is Orange? If so, propane is "choked", not enough air. Remove burners, clean each burner hole with a same size metal dowel (coat hanger works well) flush out inside of burner with garden hose, hi pressure air through all holes to dry. Replace burners ONLY after also cleaning chambers and chimney (garden hose and long brush). Do not forget to clean pilot light area too.
Most Imperials are pre-set air intake. Check gas pressure if able, 3" NG, 10" LPG. Good Luck
