20 Most Recent Pitco Frialator SG18S Deep Fryer Questions & Answers


Flames coming out of the exhaust can be caused by several things.
The fryer could be set up for natural gas and it is installed on a propane system. The fryer can be leaking oil near the burner tube and the oil is burning causing excess flame. There could be grease buildup in the flue in the back of the fryer from people hanging the baskets in the wrong place.

Hi, I have the same issue, did you manage to locate the leak? I think mines comes from the heat tubes.

Have you tried inspecting/replacing the thermocouple? This is the thing you heat when initially lighting the pilot.

You may also have a stuck pressure valve, but that is unusual.

If that small flame does not go out, it sounds like there is gas passing around the valve core of the gas valve. Regressing the core will stop this from happening.

It is usually best to use the same parts for the fryer but most of the time they are what you would call a generic part that is used by many. If you have a pilot that will fit it should work. But like I said it is best for optimum performance to use OEM parts or same model parts.

It can take a up to a minute for the thermocouple to get hot enough to latch, the flame is to low, not in the position to hit the thermocouple or just bad. Some valves need to be turned to the ON position after lighting the pilot and waiting for the thermocouple to get hot. Sometimes the nut that holds the tube to the valve comes loose and requires being tightened but not to tight.

Hi there.
Your thermostat may be bad, it does not cut-off on temperature setting that's why temperature continues to rise tripping the hi limit switch.Try replacing the thermostat.

Make sure the knob on the gas valve is turned to the ON position after lighting the pilot. If the fryer won't come on.... 1. The pilot flame may be weak causing low millivolts. 2. The thermostat is failing. 3. The pilot flame may be good but the pilot generator may be weak causing low millivolts. As this unit operates on less than 1 (one) volt DC.... you can try to jump the thermostat leads on the gas valve to see if it comes on. If it does... change the thermostat.

If you will not be using the fryer for a couple of hour or more than, it it is economical to shut down the pilot.
