Question about Pitco Frialator Kitchen Appliances - Others

Open Question

My pitco frialator E14SUFB, is in a "boil" mode and it won't heat above 212 degrees. Started to do this with no "prompting". There is oil in the fryer and had been working properly. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: want to convert pitco frialator model 14 from gas to propane

I agree - What everyone fails to tell you about conversion from Natural Gas to Propane -
1 - Take your time -
2 - The parts you get may be to many
3 - If you are going to use the unitl out-side - Wind is not your friend -
4 - While 20lb tanks will work - 60lb tanks are the best
I have found that only 70% of the gas in a 20lb tank will be used - the Amount of preasure / volumne decreases as the tank gets empty - a gas grill will empty a tank - a Deep Fryer (I have a Pitco 14 and 35c) will not - therefore, 60lb tanks
5 - Also, a 3/8 hose and connections will work, but 1/2 hose and connection work better - especially with a 60lb tank
6 - Find a good welder supply store to work with to get the hoses and adapters - Stay away from Lowes, Home Depot and other Box Stores - They are ok for most things, but not this project - Pay the extra money for the right stuff.

1 - Have 3/8, 7/16 and 1/2 wrenches - Open and Box style
2 - A very good philips and slotted screw-driver
3 - Remove the Front Door and Front Panel
4 - Remove the Burners - Be careful - they are heavy and if dropped, they do crack
5 - The orfices for the burners are simple to change
6 - The Gas Regulator on the Control valve is simple - not easy to get to, but simpe to change - and make sure it is tight, (so it does not leak) but not to tight - it can craxk
7 - The silver thimbel - it is a atomizier for the pilot - is also easy to replace, but hard to get to - don't bend the gas tube to much and be carefull removing the old one - it is jamed into the pilot
8 - Wind - IS NOT YOUR FRIEND - If outside, you need to cover the left, back and right side from wind - it will push the gas out of the burner (at the orfice) and into the cabinet and it will "POP" with gas - the orfices will have little flames on them - very yellow and very bad -

SOURCE: my pitco frialator chips fryer diplaying CFG error

CFG error on controller board can be cleared by resetting the controller back to factory setting and by doing this, all program added after the factory setting will be erased so you have to reprogram them again.

SOURCE: What are most common problems found with pitco

Some of the most common problems with Pitco fryers is failed Hi-Limit thermostats, carbon build up on burner tubes, and dirty or clogged burners. This hi-limit thermostat is mounted inside the fry tank on one of the burners. Often the cappillary tubes are damaged or broken during cleaning causing the limit to fail. The hi-limit is the most common part I replace on Pitco fryers. The other common items are self explanitory. Keep the fryer clean in all areas, including burners and tubes. You will see the repair man less often.

SOURCE: my brinkmann turkey fryer doesnt get up to boiling temp

Hi Larry, W/D here. Just got your question so I'm a bit late in getting back to you......
The amount of heat delivered at the burner is dependent on a number of things, and we'll take them in the order of most likely:
1st, The gas tip must be clear. It's possible for critters to build nests in the gas delivery piping that can plug either the gas delivery port or the air side of the mixing venturi; both will give you a reduction in BTU's. Compressed air can be used to blow out the air side of the venturi. The orifice for tha gas can be cleaned with a thin wire, or use a tip cleaner, available at a welding supply store. These are inexpensive.
2nd, The burner proper can become plugged at the ports where the mixed gas/air combusts. These can be cleaned with a small drill bit,sized to the holes, and just passed back and forth to clean them out. Compressed air works well to remove any particles remaining.
3rd, The regulator may be defective. If this is the case, you'll need to replace it as it contains no user serviceable parts.
4th, the in-line regulating valve may be sticking in the partially open position. This is difficult to diagnose, however, and is more of an assumption, after all other causes are eliminated. The cure for this is replacement also.
Hope that this was helpful to you.
Best regards, --W/D--

Pitco Frialator deep fryer boils over randomly. Is the high limit sensor or the thermostat the problem?

Trade Chef here.

Dirty oil.
Wet food.
Adding too much at one time.

Thermostat problems would burn food. Use a good quality thermometer IN the oil against what the dial says.

Fryer troubleshooting

Hi there,
Fryer's Digital Controller will display "BOIL" if the temperature is it reading does not exceed 212F or 100C for quite some time. Make sure that there is enough level of oil (not water) in the Fry Pot before turning it on.

Why does my Pitco Frialator not heat to 350?

If your fryer has computer controller (the one with 8 product buttons and left, right arrow), check the display when you turn off the computer board, it should display "gas 2". If not, you have to change the gas configuration by accessing the programming mode.

Flame goes off when temp. reaches 250 degrees, use to stay on 350 degrees without problems an them started acting up and won't reach that temp any more, disconnect the pilot automaticly

Hi limit device trips prematurely (should only trip when oil temp reaches 450F). Check if the hi limit sensing bulb (located inside the fryer tank, between fire tubes) is not touching the fire tube because if it does, it will sense the heat from burner flame which is much higher than oil temp.

My pitco gas frialator oil leak in tank .how can

You need to identify where the leak is coming.
If the leak is on the fry tank, best way to address it is to replace the oil tank.
Check the serial number of the unit with leak on fry tank, verify if it is still under warranty at PITCO web on http://www.middleby.com.

Friar heats up to correct temp but doesn't maintain

The first thing I would check is the hi limit.If that not out then I would try to a temp. gauge that will read above 350 degrees.maybe the thermostats is not right. Reading to low for the temp.

Model 14RSUFM w/purple computer won't come out of the boil out

You could have a bad t'stat. If you turn your t'stat to say 400 degrees does it get hotter ? If so, then all it may need is calibrating.
