Flames cominhg out of flue

Hi I use to repair every kind of restaurant equipment under the sun..maybe I can help...Is this a new install of the fryer and it never did this before, or did this just start do this..If a new install, the first thing I would check is the gas regulator and see if it is for Nat gas or Lp gas, and find that out..cause it has to match what you have, comming into the building..usuall the gas valve has a sticker on it that says what the water columbs are like for Nat it is like 3-6, and for Lp(propane) it is like 5-12. Ive seen customers buy a used fryer, and install a LP fryer in a Natural gas build, and the valve lets too much gas to the burners, and it will shoot flames out the top..then you would have to buy and convert a gas valve, or use parts to convert it..let me know further..

I have a Pitco Frialator 35CS Deep fryer that is leaking natural gas leak inside gas fryer door just above gas valve assembly the leak is bubbling through each of the 3 flues above the gas valve any help...

Opening fryer door during operation does not correct gas leak problem.
If there is gas leak on your fryer's system, you have to fix the leak or replace parts if necessary.
You can download parts, operation and owner's manual at pitco web on

Buner does not shut completly off. flame lingers near orifice. how determine if its the gas valve or temp control?

The thermostat is a snap action. It is either completely on or completely off. The combination valve may be letting a little extra gas pass by the main valve. Unless it is a significient amount of flame or it continues for more than a minute or two, just keep an eye on it. It is not unusual to see a tiny flame at the orifice, but it usually dies out in less than a minute or so. You can get a rebuild kit for the gas valve. The complete valve is around $150.00. You will need to get the model number and the serial number of the fryer, to buy either the valve or the rebuild kit. If you are very confident in your abilities to do a gas valve rebuild it should take a couple of hours to remove the valve by removing the main gas line, then the manifold that runs to the burners. You will also have to remove the wires that run to the high limit switch and thermostats. Be sure to mark the wires as you remove them. The gaskets are very fragile. As you take the valve apart lay everything in order so that you may retrace your steps in putting it back together. There is an exploded view of the valve in the rebuild kit. You MUST check for gas leaks before lighting the fryer after you have rebuilt the valve. With the gas pressure on, but the pilot not lit, spray the entire valve with liquid leak detector, available at the same place you get the rebuild kit. You can also use dishwashing liquid, but either way look for bubbles at all the gasket locations as well as the gas pipes and manifold that you removed. If you see ANY bubbles, don't light the pilot. Start over with new gaskets. Hope this helps

My pilot is on and burning but my main burner won't come on. Plenty of gas, is the gas valve bad or should I look for something else?

Hello there:- Before you condame the main gas valve ( the combination valve ) You should check out four things. Firstly after you light the pilot remember to turn the dial to ON on the gas valve. Secondly check the thermostate by passing the terminals . Thirdly check the pilot flame is it strong and blue in colour. fourthly check the thermopile (if you don't have a meter to check it ) or change it and keep the old one in case it is still good. It should comes on if not then you can say the main gas valve is defective. Hope this can help. Good Day and God Bless.

I can't keep my flame lit and can't figure out how to make it work please help asap

Sometmes the regulator needs to be reset. Follow these steps exactly. Turn off the gas valve at the burner. Turn off the tank valve. Slowly turn the gas tank valve on. THEN turn on the valve to the burner. Be aware that the wind will blow this burner out fairly easily as well. It may be necessary to locate the burner out of any possible drafty areas.

Fryer heats up to 550 degrees and shuts down pilot and triggers the reset button which thermostat is it the operating on or the high end on i have already replaced the gas valve

Either the thermostat is bad or there is a gas leak between the gas valve and the thermostat. Use a soap solution and apply it to the 1/4" gas lines between the thermostat and gas valve. If bubbles appear then you need to fix the gas leak. If no bubbles appear then set the gas valve to the pilot position, remove the gas line marked "out" (the left one) from the gas valve. Turn the gas valve to on. The burners should turn on. Place you finger over the hole where the disconnected line was and the burners should turn off within 10 -15 seconds. If this happens then the thermostat is your problem.
