INSTALLATION

NOTICE
Installation must conform with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1, Natural Gas Installation Code, CAN/CGA-B149.1, or the Propane Installation Code, CAN/CGA-B149.2, as applicable.
NOTICE
These installation procedures must be followed by qualified personnel or the warranty will be void. Local codes regarding installation vary greatly from one area to another. The National Fire Protection Association, Inc. states in its NFPA 96 latest edition that local codes are the “authority having jurisdiction” when it comes to installation requirements for equipment.

Step 1: Unpack
IMMEDIATELY INSPECT FOR SHIPPING DAMAGE
All containers should be examined for damage before and during unloading. The freight carrier has assumed responsibility for safe transit and delivery. If damaged equipment is received, either apparent or concealed, a claim must be made with the delivering carrier.
Apparent damage or loss must be noted on the freight bill at the time of delivery. The freight bill must then be signed by the carrier representative (Driver). If the bill is not signed, the carrier may refuse the claim. The carrier can supply the necessary forms.
A request for inspection must be made to the carrier within 5 days if there is concealed damage or loss that is not apparent until after the equipment is uncrated. The carrier should arrange an inspection. Be certain to hold all contents plus all packing material.

  1. Uncrate carefully. Report any hidden damage to the freight carrier IMMEDIATELY.
  2. Do not remove any tags or labels until the unit is installed and working properly.

Step 2: INSTALL THE LEGS (OR OPTIONAL CASTERS) AND RESTRAINTS
A set of casters is packed with the fryer. Legs are optional, purchased separately. Mounting fasteners are pre-mounted on the base plates.

  1. Raise fryer sufficiently to allow legs or casters to be screwed into the base plate. For safety, “shore up” and support the fryer with an adequate blocking arrangement strong enough to support the load.
  2. Screw the four legs or casters to the plate on the bottom of the fryer. When casters have been ordered, the casters having a locking brake should be attached under the front of the fryer.
  3. Lower the fryer gently. Never drop or allow the fryer to fall.
  4. Use a level to make sure that the fryer is level. Each caster, or the tubular end of each leg, can be screwed in or out to lower or raise each corner of the fryer.
  5. Attach restraints as required by local codes.
  6. Raise the fryer sufficiently to allow legs or casters to be screwed into the base plate. For safety, “shore up” and support the fryer with an adequate blocking arrangement strong enough to support the load.
  7. Screw the four legs or casters to the plate on the bottom of the fryer. When casters have been ordered, the casters having a locking brake should be attached under the front of the fryer.
  8. Lower the fryer gently. Never drop or allow the fryer to fall.
  9. Use a level to make sure that the fryer is level. Each caster, or the tubular end of each leg, can be screwed in or out to lower or raise each corner of the fryer.
  10. Attach restraints as required by local codes.

NOTICE
Unit must be level to assure maximum performance. Improper leveling may void warranty.
NOTICE
When this appliance is installed with casters, it must be installed with the casters supplied, a connector complying with either ANSI Z21.69 CSA 6.16 and a quick-disconnect device complying with ANSI Z21.41 CSA 6.9. It must also be installed with restraining means to guard against transmission of strain to the connector, as specified in the appliance manufacturer instructions.

PATRIOT Gas Floor Model Fryers Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 12 WARNING
If disconnection of the restraint is necessary to move the appliance for cleaning, etc., reconnect it when the appliance is moved to its original installed position.
PATRIOT Gas Floor Model Fryers Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 13WARNING
When this appliance is installed with casters, it must be installed with the casters supplied, a connector complying with either ANSI Z21.69 or CAN/CGA-6.16 and a quick disconnect device complying with either ANSI Z21.41 or CAN1-6.9.

  4. Secure it with four self-tapping screws two on the back and one on each side using a 5/16” socket

PATRIOT Gas Floor Model Fryers Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 18

Step 4: Check Clearances and Ventilation
Select a firm, level location for your fryer. Leave clearance, whenever possible, so that access from the rear is possible to permit cleaning. If the unit is to be set on non-combustible floorings, such as a concrete slab, 3 inches minimum toe room must be provided to prevent restriction of the air opening in the bottom of the unit.

PATRIOT Gas Floor Model Fryers Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 19WARNING
There must be adequate clearance between fryer(s) and construction. Clearance must also be provided in front for servicing and for operation.
Minimum Clearances:
From Combustible Construction

Sides   6   inches
Rear   6   inches

ALL GAS FLOOR MODEL FRYERS SHALL BE INSTALLED WITH AT LEAST A 16 INCH SPACE BETWEEN THE FRYER AND SURFACE FLAMES FROM ADJACENT EQUIPMENT. A FLAME GUARD IS ACCEPTABLE IF ALLOWED UNDER THE LOCAL CODE.
No additional side and rear clearance is required for service as the fryer is serviceable from the front.

PATRIOT Gas Floor Model Fryers Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 20WARNING
Improper ventilation can result in personal injury or death. Ventilation that fails to properly remove flue products can cause headaches, drowsiness, nausea, or could result in death.
Unit Must be installed under a ventilation hood
All units must be installed in such a manner that the flow of combustion and ventilation air is not obstructed. Provisions for adequate air supply must also be provided. Do NOT obstruct the bottom front of the unit, as combustion air enters through this area. Be sure to inspect and clean the ventilation system according to the ventilation equipment manufacturer’s instructions.
Due to the variety of problems that can be caused by outside weather conditions, venting by canopies or wall fans is preferred over any type of direct venting. It is recommended that a canopy extend 6″ past the appliance and the bottom edge be located 6’6″ from the floor. Filters should be installed at an angle of 45° or more from the horizontal. This position prevents the dripping of grease and facilitates collecting the run-off grease in a drip pan, unusually installed with a filter. A strong exhaust fan tends to create a vacuum in the room and may interfere with burner performance or may extinguish pilot flames. Fresh air openings approximately equal to the fan area will relieve such a vacuum. In case of unsatisfactory performance on any appliance, check the appliance with the exhaust fan in the “OFF” position. Do this only long enough to check equipment performance, then turn the hood back on and let it run to remove any exhaust that may have accumulated during the test.
The exhaust fan should be installed at least 2 feet above the vent opening at the top of the fryer.
Make sure all ventilation meet the local code requirement
This unit is not intended to be connected directly to an outside flue.

Step 5: Gas connection
A 3/4″ male NPT line for the gas connection is located near the lower right rear corner of the fryer. The serial plate (located inside the front door of the fryer) indicates the type of gas the unit is equipped to burn (natural gas or propane). The fryer should be connected ONLY to the type of gas for which it is equipped.
A circuit diagram is located inside the front door of the fryer.
This equipment is adjusted at the factory; however, pilot height should be checked at installation and adjusted, if necessary.
For orifice sizes and pressure regulator settings, see the chart on page 4. If the fryer is being installed at over 2,000 feet altitude and that information was not specified when ordered, contact the appropriate authorized Service Representative or the Service Department. Failure to install with proper orifice sizing will result in poor performance and may void the warranty.
If applicable, the vent line from the gas appliance pressure regulator shall be installed to the outdoors in accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1, Natural Gas Installation Code, CAN/CGA-B149.1, or the Propane Installation Code, CAN/CGAB149.2, as applicable.
An adequate gas supply is imperative. Undersized or low-pressure lines will restrict the volume of gas necessary for satisfactory performance. A combination gas valve and pressure regulator, which is provided with each unit, is set to maintain a 4″ W.C. manifold pressure for natural gas or 10.0″ W.C. manifold pressure for propane gas. However, to maintain these conditions the pressure on the supply line, when all units are operating simultaneously, should not drop below 7″ W.C. for natural gas or 11″ W.C. for propane as.
Fluctuations of more than 25% on natural gas or 10% on propane gas will create problems and affect burner operating characteristics. A 1/8″ tap to measure the manifold pressure is located on the combination gas valve, which is on the burner manifold located directly below the burners inside the cabinet.
Purge the supply line to clean out dust, dirt, or other foreign matter before connecting the line to the unit.
It is recommended that an individual manual shutoff valve be installed in the gas supply line to the unit.
Use pipe joint compound that is suitable for use with both natural and LP gas on all threaded connections.

PATRIOT Gas Floor Model Fryers Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 21CAUTION
ALL PIPE JOINTS AND CONNECTIONS MUST BE TESTED THOROUGHLY FOR GAS LEAKS. USE ONLY SOAPY WATER FOR TESTING ON ALL GASES. NEVER USE AN OPEN FLAME TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS. ALL CONNECTIONS MUST BE CHECKED FOR LEAKS AFTER THE UNIT HAS BEEN PUT INTO OPERATION. TEST PRESSURE SHOULD NOT EXCEED 14″ W.C.
PATRIOT Gas Floor Model Fryers Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 22CAUTION
THIS APPLIANCE AND ITS INDIVIDUAL COMBINATION GAS VALVE MUST BE DISCONNECTED FROM THE GAS SUPPLY PIPING SYSTEM DURING ANY PRESSURE TESTING OF THAT SYSTEM AT TEST PRESSURES IN EXCESS OF 14” WC (1/2 PSIG or 3.45 kPa).
If the incoming gas pressure is in excess of 14″WC (1/2PSI, 3.45 kPa), a proper step-down regulator will be required. See PHOTO 1 for LP application
Connect the gas supply directly to the 3/4″ male NPT connector located near the lower-left rear corner of the fryer. When tightening the supply pipe, be sure to hold the mating connector extending from the unit securely with a wrench. This will prevent any damage or distortion to the internal piping and controls of the unit.
After connecting the gas supply, check again that the fryer is level. Use a long spirit level four ways; across the front and rear of the frypot, and along each edge.

OPERATION

LIGHTING
PATRIOT Gas Floor Model Fryers Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 24CAUTION
IF YOU SMELL GAS DURING THE LIGHTING PROCEDURE, IMMEDIATELY SHUT OFF THE GAS SUPPLY UNTIL THE LEAK HAS BEEN CORRECTED.
Open the burner compartment door and do the following:

  1. Turn thermostat to “OFF”
  2. Press down the knob of the combination gas valve, turn it counterclockwise to the “PILOT” position (shown), and continue to press the knob down.
    PATRIOT Gas Floor Model Fryers Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 25
  3. While pressing the knob down, use a lit match to ignite the pilot. Continue to press the knob down for about 30 seconds. If the pilot does not stay lit when the knob is released, repeat the lighting procedure and keep the knob down longer. Adjustment of pilot flame may be necessary.
  4. When the pilot stays lit, turn the knob counterclockwise to the “ON” position. Do not press down on the knob in this step.
  5. Do NOT turn the thermostat “ON” until the frypot is filled with oil or solid shortening.
  6. Once the frypot is filled with shortening, set the thermostat to the desired temperature

FILLING THE FRYPOT

  1. Close drain valve completely before filling the frypot.
  2. When the fryer is new, fill the frypot with water and clean it thoroughly (see “Weekly Cleaning” on page 15) in order to remove protective coatings and any foreign matter.
  3. The recommended solid shortening capacity for the frypot (35, 55, or 75lbs) is described on the serial plate (which is located inside the front door).
  4. Remove the basket support frame when filling the frypot with solid shortening.
  5. When solid shortening is used, be careful not to bend, break, or twist the thin capillary wires of the sensing elements located in the frypot.
  6. Pack solid shortening into the zone below the tubes, all spaces between the tubes, and at least an inch above the top of the tubes before lighting the fryer. If any air spaces are left around the heat tube surfaces when the heat is turned on, the tube surfaces will become red hot, burn the solid shortening, weaken the frypot, and could result in a fire.
    CAUTION
    NEVER ATTEMPT TO MELT A SOLID BLOCK OF SHORTENING ON TOP OF THE HEAT TUBES.
    NEVER START THE BURNERS WHEN THE FRYPOT IS EMPTY.
  7. To prevent burning or scorching the solid shortening, keep the thermostat set at the lowest temperature until all the solid shortening between and above the tubes has been melted. Additional solid shortening can then be added until the desired frying depth has been reached.
  8. Replace the basket support frame over the frypot heat tubes.

SHUTDOWN PROCEDURE

Standby: Turn the knob on the combination gas valve to the “PILOT” position. At this setting, only the pilot burner will remain ignited.
Complete Shutdown: Turn the knob on the combination gas valve clockwise, press down on the knob and continue to turn to the “OFF” position.

RELIGHTING

PATRIOT Gas Floor Model Fryers Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 26WARNING
In the event of a main burner ignition failure, a five-minute purge period must be observed prior to reestablishing the ignition source.

  1. Shut off all gas.
  2. Wait five minutes.
  3. Follow the “Lighting” procedure described on page 12.

AUTOMATIC PILOT VALVE
The Automatic Pilot Valve provides an automatic safety shutoff for the fryer when the pilot flame is extinguished. When the pilot flame is burning, the valve is held open electromagnetically by the electrical current from a thermopile in the pilot flame. When the pilot flame goes out, the generation of current ceases and the valve closes automatically.

HIGH LIMIT CONTROL
Gas floor model fryers are equipped with a secondary heat control that prevents the oil temperature from rising above 450°F. (Because of the accuracy tolerance of the sensor, the oil temperature may reach as high as 475°F.)
In the event the fryer shuts down due to this condition, the oil must be cooled to below 400°F before the pilot burner can be re-ignited. When the oil has cooled, use the “Lighting” procedure on page 12 to place the fryer back in operation. If the problem persists, contact your local Service Representative or the Service Department.

COOKING HINTS

USER TIPS

  • Smoking oil means that the temperature is too high, or that the oil has broken down.
  • Gum in frypot denotes a need for thorough cleaning (see “Weekly Cleaning” on page 15)
  • Use different oil for oily foods (mackerel, nutmeg, etc.) than for foods with water-soluble flavors (potatoes, onions, etc.).
  • Taste cool oil for quality. Replace it regularly.
  • Poor oil cannot produce good food.

CLEANING

The equipment is constructed with the best quality materials and is designed to provide durable service when properly maintained. To expect the best performance, your equipment must be maintained in good condition and cleaned daily. Naturally, the frequency and extent of cleaning depends on the amount and degree of usage.
Following daily and more extensive periodic maintenance procedures will increase the life of your equipment. Climatic conditions (e.g., salt air) may result in the need for more thorough and more frequent cleaning in order to keep equipment performing at optimal levels.

PATRIOT Gas Floor Model Fryers Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 27WARNING: BURN HAZARD
If necessary to move the fryer for cleaning, etc., drain oil first to avoid death or serious injury.
PATRIOT Gas Floor Model Fryers Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 28WARNING
If disconnection of the restraint is necessary to move the appliance for cleaning, etc., reconnect it when the appliance is moved to it originally installed position.

DAILY CLEANING

  1. Turn thermostat knob to the “OFF” position.
  2. Place hot oil in a safe container under the drain and drain the frypot completely.

  4. Wipe off the basket support frame and the inside of the frypot with a clean cloth.
    PATRIOT Gas Floor Model Fryers Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 29CAUTION
    SOME AREAS OF THE FRYPOT MAY BE HOT!
  5. Close drain valve and strain the oil back into the frypot through several thicknesses of cheesecloth, or filter it back using a filter machine.
  6. Replace the basket support frame (if applicable)
  7. Add oil or shortening to MIN oil level mark on rear of frypot.
  8. To resume cooking, turn the combination gas valve knob to “ON” position.

WEEKLY CLEANING

  1. Follow steps 1 through 4 of the Daily Cleaning procedure (see previous section).
  2. Close drain valve and fill frypot with a solution of warm water and boil-out compound
  3. Relight the fryer and bring the solution to a gentle boil for at least five minutes.
  4. Turn off main burners and let the solution stand until the gum deposits are softened and the carbon spots and burned grease spots can be rubbed off.
  5. Scrub the frypot walls and heat tubes, then drain out frypot and rinse it with clean water.
  6. Refill the frypot with clean water and boil again.
  7. Turn off gas and drain and rinse well until clean.
  8. Wipe dry with a clean cloth.
  9. Refill as specified in the “Filling the Frypot” section (see page 13).

MONTHLY CLEANING

  1. Perform the Weekly Cleaning procedure (see the previous section).
  2. Clean around burner and orifices if lint has accumulated.
  3. Visually check that burner carry-over ports are unobstructed.

CLEANING STAINLESS STEEL SURFACES

To remove normal dirt, grease and product residue from stainless steel use ordinary soap and water (with or without detergent) applied with a sponge or cloth. Dry thoroughly with a clean cloth. Never use vinegar or any corrosive cleaner.
To remove grease and food splatter or condensed vapors that have baked on the equipment apply cleanser to a damp cloth or sponge and rub cleanser on the metal in the direction of the polishing lines on the metal. Rubbing cleanser, as gently as possible, in the direction of the polished lines will not mar the finish of the stainless steel. NEVER RUB WITH A CIRCULAR MOTION. Soil and burnt deposits that do not respond to the above procedure can usually be removed by rubbing the surface with SCOTCH-BRITE™ scouring pads or STAINLESS scouring pads. DO NOT USE ORDINARY STEEL WOOL, as any particles left on the surface will rust and further spoil the appearance of the finish. NEVER USE A WIRE BRUSH, STEEL SCOURING PADS (EXCEPT STAINLESS), SCRAPER, FILE, OR OTHER STEEL TOOLS. Surfaces that are marred collect dirt more rapidly and become more difficult to clean. Marring also increases the possibility of a corrosive attack. Refinishing may then be required.
Darkened areas, called “heat tint,” sometimes appear on stainless steel surfaces where the area has been subjected to excessive heat. These darkened areas are caused by the thickening of the protective surface of the stainless steel and are not harmful. Heat tint can normally be removed by the above cleaning techniques, but tint which does not respond to that procedure calls for a vigorous scouring in the direction of the polish lines, using SCOTCH-BRITE™ scouring pads or a STAINLESS scouring pad in combination with a powered cleanser. Heat tint action may be lessened by not applying or by reducing, heat to equipment during slack periods.

CHECKING AND ADJUSTING PRESSURE REGULATOR

The combination gas valve (includes pressure regulator) is factory set at 4″ W.C. for natural gas and 10″ W.C.
for propane gas. To check the manifold pressure, do the following:

  1. Turn the thermostat “OFF” and the combination gas valve knob to the “PILOT” setting.
  2. Remove pressure tap plug from burner manifold located directly below the burners in the cabinet.
  3. Install a fitting appropriate to connect a manometer.
  4. Turn combination gas valve to “ON” position and thermostat to “ON.” The burners will ignite. Be certain that sufficient oil is covering the tubes.
  5. With burners on, read manometer.
  6. If the manometer does not read 4″ W.C. for natural gas, or 10″ W.C. for propane gas, adjust the regulator.
  7. Remove regulator adjustment screw cap (see diagram on page 15).
  8. With a small screwdriver rotate adjustment screw “CLOCKWISE” to increase or “COUNTERCLOCKWISE” to decrease pressure. Be sure to adjust with burners “ON.”
  9. Turn thermostat “OFF” and set combination gas valve knob to “PILOT” position.
  10. Remove manometer and replace pressure tap plug.
  11.  Replace adjustment screw cap.

CHECKING AND ADJUSTING CALIBRATION OF THERMOSTAT

All thermostat controls are carefully calibrated at the factory (i.e., the dial is properly set to control appliance temperatures accurately). Only a qualified appliance service technician should perform this adjustment.
PATRIOT Gas Floor Model Fryers Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 32

  1. To check appliance temperatures, use a thermocouple-type temperature test instrument or reliable thermometer. Place the thermocouple of the test instruments or thermometer in the center of the frypot.
  2. Turn the control dial to the temperature setting requiring the greatest accuracy. Allow enough time for the temperature to stabilize, or until several temperature readings are identical.
  3. Recalibrate if the setting and actual temperature differ by more than 10°F.
  4. Remove dial from dial shaft “B.” Be careful that the dial shaft does not rotate in either direction (which would change the dial setting).
  5. Hold dial shaft “B” steady and with a screwdriver turn calibration screw “A” clockwise to decrease the temperature, or counterclockwise to increase the temperature.
  6. Replace the dial. Let the appliance operate until the temperature has stabilized before a final check is made to determine whether or not the calibration has been corrected.
  7. Once correct, seal the calibration screw with glycol.

CHECKING AND ADJUSTING AUTO SAFETY PILOT

The pilot flame should surround the thermopile for 1/2″. It must be large and sharp enough to cause the thermopile to glow a dull red, or sufficient to hold the safety valve open.

  1. Remove pilot adjustment cap
