Instuctions on how to change a pitco fryer from nat gas to propane
Hi there!You need to order a gas valve conversion kit (from nat to propane), propane pilot orifice and propane burner orifice,Gas valve conversion kit consists of a replacement spring thicker than of natural gas valve spring, gas valve cap and a sticker. Pilot orifice for propane has smaller bore than of natural.Burner orifice for propane has also smaller bore than of natural burner orifice (one for each burner).You will be able to find these parts on the list of Pitco Distributor when you visit http://www.pitco.comRegards.
Pilot lights but will not light burners when range
Check and clean the thermopile, it must be free of soot or any form of dirt so that it can properly sense heat from the pilot flame and generate millivolt to open main valve to fire up main burners.
Unit over heats burners stay on after turning off
Either thermostat is faulty or combination gas valve is not shutting off. more than likely it will be a problem with the gas valve which is the big aluminium block located toward the floor of the fryer. the " actuator " on the valve is faulty. replace the valveCheers
I light the pilot everything
Sometimes certain models turn off if you touch the thermostat before it lites...We've seen this happen many times, so you would need to light the fryer first, wait until it's stable before turning your thermostat to desired temperature.
When i set the thermostat to desired setting
Hi Dan.Check if the fire tubes are clean, exhust system must be operating well during fryer operation. There should be no fresh air directed at the flue stack of the fryer, only exhaust.Regards.
The stack in the rear
You really need to clean this up before using it... Built up grease will catch fire, and it's fairly easy to clean this. You can buy some deep fryer cleaner at a restaurant equipment type store near you or I can ship some to you, but it's easier to use a product intended for that use... They have liquids or a powder available and you will want to turn your fryer on to boil it out, with your cleaner in it. Any restaurant equipment will clean up alot easier if you have it on low or 200 degrees...including the outside of the unit. For super built on crud, they have sprays also you could spray up inside the flue area, that will eat away that grease build up. You will have to clean that out however, and they also carry brushes if you need one of those to reach it... It will take some elbow grease, and some patience, but we clean up equipment all the time that normal people would look at and throw away. When we're done with it, it looks brand new again... Good luck.. Susan 888-542-5959.
