Hi there.
You should inspect the fire tubes, it is a tunnel under the fry tank where the burner flames suppose to travel to heat up the oil. Your fire tubes may be clogged with soot or carbon that's why flames cannot go thru the fire tubes. Fire tubes must be free of soot or carbon deposits.
Soot build up on fire tubes can be prevented by keeping the gas pressure at standard as much as possible, low gas pressure produce yellow flame or poor flame quality and in turn will produce soot.
Also, make sure that no air or ventilation is directed towards the flue riser, otherwise, the same will result, flames rolling back towards the door.
Regards.

Large flame just above orifice


You have a clogged burner. It probably has carbon build up and that's pushing the gas outside the tube to burn. If you can remove the burner you can flush it out with water. Beware, it's messy. You will get carbon black all over everything.

When i set the thermostat to desired setting flames shoot to the front of the fryer


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.

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

When the pilot light button is released the flame goes out. (pitco propane fryer) - unsure of model number as data plate is worn. Does the thermopile need replacing ?


Try first to clean the thermopile. If it has accumulated soot/ carbon, it will not sense enough heat from the pilot flame to generate small amount of electricity to energize the pilot valve and main valve of gas valve.

Flames shooting out vent until oil reaches 350 degrees why???


Hi there.
Check the gas pressure and gas type being fed to the unit if they are correct, low gas pressure will result in poor flame quality which will in turn produce carbon or soot inside the fire tubes.
Check also the condition of the fire tubes inside, they should be free of carbon or soot deposit.
Regards.

I have a 40c+ss pitco fryer.the pilot will go out at random times.Could be 1hr or 24 hrs after it is lit. The gas valve has been change, and the thermalpile has been replaced.


Check if your pilot flame sufficiently heats thermopile during operation and make sure also that it is free of soot or any form of dirt, thermopile generates small amount of electricity to energize pilot and main valve of the gas valve for pilot and main burner operation. This electricity passes through hi limit mechanical contacts. Hi limit on fryers act as safety device which will shut down pilot and burner flame when oil temperature reaches 450F.
If your fryer is set at 350F and over shoots up to 450F (which will trip hi limit and shut down pilot and burner flame), the thermostat is not good, but, if hi limit trips on temperature much lower than 450F, hi limit is bad.

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.

Hi need sper part for pitco fryer flame failure valve model no 14


It sounds like you are not recieving a heat feedback signal. It may be as simple as cleaning your flame sensor, using a emery cloth/ scotchbright. Be sure that all gas is turned to the on positions. Also that any safty high limits are closed / reset.
