Check and clean the thermopile, it is the cylindrical piece of metal standing behind the pilot assembly.Try also to tighten its wiring connections to the gas valve and high limit.If it does not correct the problem, replace the thermopile.

Pilot light goes out after a few minutes it seems t b overheating! It's a pitco freestanding 35C+ gas fryer


Check the oil temp and see when the pilot goes out. Is the thermostat shutting off at the correct temperature ? A low pilot flame could also be causing low millivolts, which can cause a pilot drop out.

How can you tell if the pitco fryer safety switch is bad


The safety switch is operated by extremely high temperatures. If the safety switch is bad, it will not shut off at extremely high temperatures.

Soot coming


Hi there. Check the gas pressure, it should meet the the nameplate required pressure, low gas pressure produce poor flame quality which results in soot formation.. The type of gas must also be compatible with the orifice sizes on pilot and burners. Check and clean as needed all soot formation on burners and fire tubes.
Regards.

Pitco frialator excessive pilot flame


If you didn't figure it out already you lost the orifice on the pilot light. It's a little metal cup with a tiny hole in it that slips over the end of the gas tube in the pilot assembly. The orifice controls the size of the pilot light. Need to get a new one or find the lost part.

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.

When the pilot light button is released the flame goes out. (pitco propane fryer) - unsure of model number as data plate is worn. Does the thermopile need replacing ?


Try first to clean the thermopile. If it has accumulated soot/ carbon, it will not sense enough heat from the pilot flame to generate small amount of electricity to energize the pilot valve and main valve of gas valve.

I have a pitco frialator and the pilot will light but when button is released after heating thermocouple, it just goes out. I've replaced the thermocouple but still the same. The pilot flame is in the...


Check if the unit receives the right amount of fuel as stated on its nameplate, if it does, check all wires for loose connections, Milli volt wont pass on loose wiring. If this does not correct the problem, you have to replace the gas valve, the main valve coil may be shorted that's why the pilot is shut when main valve is energized.

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.
