Is it doing more than lighting the pilot light? Or is the only action is the pilot light coming on, then off?

I would need to know more spacifically which model you had. Here is a list of manuals on the manufacturers web site so you can see for yourself.

http://www.pitco.com/doc_lib.htm

If I were to look at your unit, I would first look for, and see if there is a sensor (sometimes appears to resemble a piece of coat hanger sticking through some ceramic) that the flames will heat. The warming from the flames generates electricity. The electricity keeps the gas flowing. It is a safety device to keep your home/business from exploding from a build-up of unburnt gas.

Make sure the sensor is being hit by the flame. If it is, and the flame still goes out, then it just might be bad. I would imagine it would run about $20 for a replacement part.

if it works, great! If not, then you are only out $20.

SOURCE: after changing the thermostat, the gas valve knob

Try to spray wd40 on knob.
If spraying wd40 doesn't work, you have to replace the gas valve.

Hi there!
Check the incoming gas pressure.
Insufficient gas pressure will greatly affect the unit's efficiency.

Would Pitco 35C+ still heat if bulb/capillary of control thermostat breaks?


Hi there.

The unit will not fire up if the capillary of thermostat is broken or punctured because the thermostat's mechanical contact will remain open.

Regards.

After we used our fryer last time, there was a soot build up on our exhaust. Just tested it again, and it seems to be running really hot. Do we need a new thermostat? How much is a thermostat?


Soot is formed when fuel combustion is incomplete. Check if the gas pressure is sufficient and of correct type (natural or propane gas). Thermostat can be checked by observing if the burner flame goes off when the oil temperature reached the thermostat setting. Price can be checked at pitco website on www.middleby.com.

I have a pitco 35c fryer the pilot light will light but the flame is very low it goes out when i release the controll the pilot light adjustment has no effect on flame i have the right amount of fuel...


Check and clean the thermopile, it is the cylindrical piece of metal standing behind the pilot assembly.Try also to tighten its wiring connections to the gas valve and high limit.If it does not correct the problem, replace the thermopile.

My pitco frialator fryer's pilate wont stay lit


Check the thermopile, it should be free of soot or any form of dirt. Pilot flame quality must be good. Gas pressure should meet the requirement as stated on the nameplate.

Hello i have an electric Pitco Frialator and when I turn it on the light comes on but it doesn't click and doesn't heat up. What could be causing this?


If the mechanical thermostat is set at temperature higher than the present oil temperature and does not "click" it is a bad thermostat and needs replacement. Clicking sound on thermostat indicates closing of the mechanical contacts.
Physically examine the thermostat capillary and sensing bulb, any puncture found indicates that it needs replacement.
