Question about Pitco Frialator Kitchen Appliances - Others
Posted by Anonymous on
Drain the fryer. Cleaning the kettle will make things easier. Remove the thermostat knob and remove the two screws that hold the thermostat. Remove the two wires. Under the kettle you will see a double headed bolt with a tiny stainless tube running through them. Make sure that you do no confuse the one for the thermostat with the one for the high limit. Loosen or completely unscrew the small inner nut. Unscrew the large outer nut. Inside the kettle, locate the sensor bulb that corresponds to the thermostat. Remove the bracket and vertically straighten the sensor bulb. From under the kettle pull the sensor bulb and wire down and remove thermostat. Clean the fitting where you removed the bulb. Replace with new thermostat in reverse order. Avoid sharp bends in the sensor wire. Use Teflon tape on the large nut. The small nut is a compression fitting and does not need Teflon tape. Reclamp the sensor bulb and pull excess tubing from the kettle before tightening the small nut. Be careful not to cross thread the nuts. Do not over tighten the small nut. Refill the fryer and check for leaks.

SOURCE: how to change a thermostat
First off make sure you get the OEM pitco t-stat.
1. Unplug all power sources from the fryer.
2. Remove all oil or shortening from the fry pot.
3.Remove the sensing bulb from the brackets inside the fry pot.
4.There will be a double compression fitting entering the fry pot from inside the control area, remove both of these compression fittings.
5. Slide the sensing bulb and cap tube out of the opening in the fry pot.
6. Remove the mounting hardware holding the old t-stat to the cabinet
7.Disconnect the wires on the backside of the t-stat (Make sure to note the wire locations)
8.Connect the wires to the new t-stat.
9Repeat the order in reverse to reinstall the new t-stat
When you connect the larger compression fitting to the frypot make sure that you get a pipe sealant that is rated to 600 deg. F
any high heat pipe sealant for stainless steel should suffice for this.
Hope this helps You

SOURCE: Lighting the fryer
If this is a milivolt unit, meaning no solid-state or computer/digital controlled. You would need to turn your gas valve to the pilot position, then press in and hold until you can light the pilot using a lighter (this may take several minutes, to bleed the air from gas supply) once there is a pilot flame present, you will need to hold the valve button in for about 45 seconds to heat the thermalpile. Once pilot is lit, thene turn to on position and proceeed to turning thermostate to set temp.

Replacing the t'stat can be hard. I would first evaluate the cost of the vat. Do you have any leaks now in it? I would replace the t'stats. The cost is much less than the cost of even a used one.
