Pitco Frialator SG14 Deep Fryer - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

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.

Sounds like propane. Please is heavier than air. Try opening air shutters on burners.

Sounds like thermostat or no fuel. Gas lines on? Correct orifice for the type of gas youre using?

first be sure the valve is in the on position. sounds crazy but I've been there. Next even though the pilot is lit it may not be burning hot enough to make the Thermo pile produce the 750 millivolts the valve needs to operate. If the thermo pile is producing the proper current then the gas valve itself is the culprit. If you are not comfortable with gas and do have the proper testers You should call a pro. The pilot is easy to clean though. turn the gas valve to the off position and remove the pilot. When you remove the gas line to the pilot there is a small oriface inside that looks like a little thimble. Remove it and clean it. the gas flows through a very small hole that clogs very easy. Reassmble it tighten the gas line. Check for leaks with some bubbles and give it a try.

Sounds crazy but check for power at the outlet. If that's good then possibly a bad cord,Power switch or interlock safety switch if it has one. Do you hear a humming sound when you try to use it? If so the motor is frozen up. Hope this helps.

I am not familiar with this unit but I would highly recommend you get a service tec, it sounds like the gas pressure is to high and this would be an extreme fire hazard. I would highly recommend not using it until it is repaired.

Hi I use to repair every kind of restaurant equipment under the sun..maybe I can help...Is this a new install of the fryer and it never did this before, or did this just start do this..If a new install, the first thing I would check is the gas regulator and see if it is for Nat gas or Lp gas, and find that out..cause it has to match what you have, comming into the building..usuall the gas valve has a sticker on it that says what the water columbs are like for Nat it is like 3-6, and for Lp(propane) it is like 5-12. Ive seen customers buy a used fryer, and install a LP fryer in a Natural gas build, and the valve lets too much gas to the burners, and it will shoot flames out the top..then you would have to buy and convert a gas valve, or use parts to convert it..let me know further..

Hi there.
Check first if there are no foreign objects hangings on the ball causing leak.
If you really need to change the ball valve, cling the jaw of a 14-inch pipe wrench on the neck of the valve connected to the fryer drain and turn it counter clockwise (***do this with no oil on fry tank and make sure that the tank is cold).
Wrap a teflon tape on the thread before installing the new ball valve.

Check if there is no foreign object jammed on the ball valve. You must first drain the oil. Examine also the gasket for damage, if there is, you have to replace the ball valve.

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.

If you didn't figure it out already you lost the orifice on the pilot light. It's a little metal cup with a tiny hole in it that slips over the end of the gas tube in the pilot assembly. The orifice controls the size of the pilot light. Need to get a new one or find the lost part.

If you have build up of soot you need a service and a gas fitter to do it .
