There are different thermocouples for different type of gas valve. You can order the thermocouple for your pitco fryer at and look for the local service/ sales office in your at pitco website there.

Don't worry, it's not strange. I've also done some research into thermocouples. I came across a website that specializes in them;

Ther polit light will not stray lit

If the plot light will not stay lit then usually either the pilot is not sufficiently heating the thermocouple or there is a problem in the pilot control valve. I hope this helps.

We have a double Pico Friolator. Took over from previous restaurant. Can't seem to light pilot. Can you walk us thru it?

If it's a manual gas, then you have to hold the pilot button down for awhile, in order for the sensors to tell the pilot to lite....It takes some time. If you need help, call our service tech, Ray, at 888-542-5959 at Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, Ohio. He's pretty good over the phone even...Thanks, Susan

My vulcan fryers pilot keeps blowing off. ther e are 2 pilots and one has the problem. pl help

The thermocouple that senses the flame is bad... on most deep fryers they are actually "power pile generators" they produce a bit of current from the flame hitting them and the current operates the gas valve...

Replace it and you will be operating again they do wear out regularly...

Pilot flickers replkaced ther-cup now pilot wont lite/stay lit

Remove the cobwebs and junk from the pilot. Position the thermocouple where the tip can hit the flame to get the most out of the thermocouple.more

Adjustment for in house ng regulator

Don't adjust the regulator. Problems with the regulator are rare, and if you don't have the special pressure gauge you cant safely adjust it anyway. Your problem is with the thermocouple. This shuts off the gas valve if the burner goes out. Replacements can be found at Home Depot.
