Sounds like you may have the thermostat turned way too high.... If you don't, check to make sure it's working correctly, like is the temperature reading correct? Is your flue all junked up with build up and crud? If so, you will need to clean it out.... You can scrap it out with a dough scraper or anything else that works for you...Also, you might check your gas connections, or have your gas co check them, and see if there are any issues with the gas connection and the amount of gas coming into your fryer. Hope this helps you.

I'm getting a lot of soot from my propane fired fryer. Otherwise works well.


The burner flames must be BLUE. Yellow flames will produce soot. Sounds like the burner orifice size needs to be checked.

Help flames front of fryer


Hi there.
Try to check and clean if needed the fire tubes, soot may have build up inside blocking the flame path. Soot build up on fire tubes and burners are caused primarily by low gas pressure, assuming that the orifice size are correct with respect to the type of gas used.
Regards.

Deep fryer ignites but burner flames will not enter cylinders


Hi there.
Fire tubes may be clogged with soot. Have a technician inspect and clean the fire tubes for soot deposits/ build ups.
Check also if there is no air or ventilation directed on flue as it will push the flames back to the burners.
Regards.

It is advisable to get a qualified technician to clean the burners, pilot, and insure there is proper gas pressure and volume to the unit. Without verified gas pressure and volume, even with clean burners the problem may recur.

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 fryer is not blowing the flame out in the inserts tube it is turning toward the top


There may be an excessive carbon deposits or soot formation inside the heat tubes of your fryer that's why the flames can not get inside. You have to remove these soot or carbon deposits to correct the problem.This problem is caused by low gas pressure.
Also check if there is no obstruction on top of flue riser where products of combustion exits. Your exhaust must also be working when using the fryer.

Is there an easy way to get access to the rear vent to clean away soot and buildup?


You have to dismantle the back panel to have access in cleaning the flue. Soot formation or carbon build up on fryers are due to low operating gas pressure. When the fryer receives lower than the nameplate rating gas pressure, the flame on burners will be of poor quality (yellow flame) which will in turn produce soot/ carbon.

My pitco 35 c the flame is burning yellow and not going inside the very wall i thought it might be the regulator pressure on the fryer on the back side


Low gas pressure will produce low flame quality (yellow flame).
Check and remove any dirt or soot on burner holes, and orifice
Burner flame not going inside the fire tube could be due to soot or carbon build up inside the fire tube blocking the flame path, check the inside of the fire tube, if considerable amount of soot is seen, better have them removed.
Yellow flame will cause a lot of problem on fryers if not corrected as soon as possible.
If you have doubt on your gas regulator, better have a qualified service technician to check it.
