Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
Pilot lights are lit. Turn on unit, and after a bit of time, it backfires big time, like there is a gas buildup in the combustion chamber before it ignites.
That is strange....Have you tried to clean out your gas lines? Sometimes, especially in LP fryers, they get stuff up inside the gas lines, which have to be cleaned out in order for them to work correctly...I sure sounds like a gas problem, with you saying it "backfires". Another to check, would be is this a natural gas fryer, hooked up to LP, or vice versa? Either way it wouldn't work properly, and could cause that.... You don't have a leak around your fry pot area, do you? That catches fire sometimes, where the oil leaks out under the pot. You can also check your jets, as they get clogged up too. We use a air compressor to blow them out, but you can use a small brush or a skewer to clean them out as well. Our gas service tech, Ray is off Monday, but he will be back in on Tuesday, so if you need further help, please call and speak with him Tuesday.
Our toll free number is 888-542-5959. We are open 8:30 to 5:30 M-F.
I hope this helps, but if not, call Ray and he can probably help you further.
