    The frymaster I rebuilt awhile back, I just got a call saying it's shooting a 10 inch flame out the back. I'm guessing the U burner pitted or cracked and I have raw gas igniting when it exits the fryer. I already told them I'm not doing them any favors by checking it out. I will repair it this one last time and if so much as a thermopile has a hiccup, it's goodbye relic and time for a new unit.
    Interesting.

    What was causing the "shooting a 10 inch flame out the back" Red?

    Ill be looking into it more Tuesday. That section/vat has been drained and disabled until then. The flame exiting the back was orange. The area was free of grease buildup. The gas pressure was 3.5" on the manifold. I'm thinking a leaky burner tube or a broken ceramic deflector? Ill let you know what I find.

    Finally caught up to this work order. Pulled manifold to find a broken ceramic deflector in the rear that had fallen onto 2 of the orifices. Cleaned all the soot buildup. Just wanted to replace the broken one as they plan on getting new friers. OK. The grease return inlet was leaking also on one of the vats, i pulled the street 90 and it was mostly plugged. I bet the whole circuit is gunked up. I can post a picture in a new thread when the parts arrive.

    So, this unit has been "Out of Service" since Jan. 8, 2019?

    Yes. They were able to get by with the other two sections until I was able to check it out. Had someone been able to fix it before me I would have been fine with that.

    I see this all the time where they don't clean out the hood overflows, they leak into the back of vats. I pull the fryers forward let the person in charge see what is going on , return a month later and fryer is back in the same spot i told them not to keep it and overflow full
    Sent from the van with the a/c on.
