Pilot light is strong with no problem. Cut on main burners and pilot flame diminishes and barely touches thermopile causing main burners to go out. Pressure to unit is good and flames good


Take off the gas line and look to see if too much thread sealant was used on the gas line. Pressure may be good, but that doesn't rule out the pressure regulator.

HELP PITCO FLAMES OUT BLOWS OUT PILOT LIGHT CAN WORK FOR 3 OR 4 TIMES SHUTS DOWN NICELY THEN WOOF SMALL BLOW BACK CAUSEING PILOT TO BLOW OUT THEN HAVE TO WAIT 10MINS TO RELIGHT


This is caused by a pressure problem. There should be an adjustment screw on the gas valve regulator. Also, make sure the pilot orifice has been removed and cleaned. There is also an adjustment screw on the gas valve for the flow of gas to the pilot.

Imperial 40 ignites but does not extend flames into heating tubes. Burns only fron


It sounds like your gas line either is clogged or your heating tubes are clogged up with oil/dirt/gunk? You can blow these out with a small hand held compressor or if you have a small enough brush, you can use that to clean it. The compressor is the quickest way, but have you cleaned this unit at all? Using a fryer boil out and running the fryer will also help clean out your holes, but again, the compressor works best.

Pitco deep fryer flames coming out the fryer


Hi there.
The soot or carbon have probably build up inside the fire tubes, better check and have an authorized service technician clean them.
Make sure that the fryer is receiving the rated gas pressure and correct gas type as stated on the nameplate, this way, carbon or soot formation on fire tubes can be prevented
Regards.

My Pitco fryer is shooting large flames out of the door. . . . HELP!


Hi there.
You should inspect the fire tubes, it is a tunnel under the fry tank where the burner flames suppose to travel to heat up the oil. Your fire tubes may be clogged with soot or carbon that's why flames cannot go thru the fire tubes. Fire tubes must be free of soot or carbon deposits.
Soot build up on fire tubes can be prevented by keeping the gas pressure at standard as much as possible, low gas pressure produce yellow flame or poor flame quality and in turn will produce soot.
Also, make sure that no air or ventilation is directed towards the flue riser, otherwise, the same will result, flames rolling back towards the door.
Regards.

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? ...


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.

DEAN SR142GPS Flame Issue


A gas valve is actually 2 valves in one. The first is your pilot valve, when the pilot is lit, the flame heats a thermocouple or thermopile & that heat produces a millivolt signal that is sent to main gas valve( second part) & tells it that pilot is established and to open to allow main burners to light. The 3 "little flames" were coming from the orfices on the burner manifold. If you are absolutely sure you put the gas valve back in the same direction as it came out (arrow on bottom of valve pointing to the fryer/burners) & any springs or adjustment screws were not mucked with, then there is a malfunction in the gas valve. It needs to be replaced.

Is it doing more than lighting the pilot light? Or is the only action is the pilot light coming on, then off?

I would need to know more spacifically which model you had. Here is a list of manuals on the manufacturers web site so you can see for yourself.

http://www.pitco.com/doc_lib.htm

If I were to look at your unit, I would first look for, and see if there is a sensor (sometimes appears to resemble a piece of coat hanger sticking through some ceramic) that the flames will heat. The warming from the flames generates electricity. The electricity keeps the gas flowing. It is a safety device to keep your home/business from exploding from a build-up of unburnt gas.

Make sure the sensor is being hit by the flame. If it is, and the flame still goes out, then it just might be bad. I would imagine it would run about $20 for a replacement part.

if it works, great! If not, then you are only out $20.

Hi, Probably the thermocouple. It will be right at the pilot light and hooks to the gas valve. The pilot heats it up to tell the gas valve that the pilot is working. If this is an electronic ignition, It will be the flame sensor still close to the pilot and will need cleaned or replaced. Hope this helps.
