Shut off the gas supply to the fryer and disconnect the fryer from the electrical power
supply.
Remove the burner heat shield to expose the burner mounting bolts.
Loosen but do not remove the burner mounting bolts.
One at a time, lift the burners up and disengage them from the burner bracket, then lift
them up and off the burner orifices.
Unscrew the existing burner orifices from the manifold and replace them with those in
the kit. Use bushings, as necessary, to fit smaller SM40/SR42 orifices to manifold.
Unscrew the gas tube from the pilot burner and carefully pull it away from the pilot
burner.
The pilot orifice should drop out of the pilot hood. If it does not, gently pry it out.
Insert the replacement pilot orifice in the hood and reconnect the gas tube.
Convert the gas valve regulator in accordance with the instructions furnished with the
regulator conversion kit.
Reinstall the burners by slipping them over the burner orifices and engaging the
mounting bolts in the keyhole slots in the mounting bracket. Tighten the mounting bolts.
Verify that the incoming gas pressure is in accordance with the appropriate table in the
Installation and Operation Manual for the fryer being converted.
Open the gas supply to the fryer and check for leaks using a solution of soapy water
applied to each connection in the fryer’s gas supply system.
Turn off the gas supply to the fryer. Attach a manometer to the burner manifold pressure
tap then reconnect the fryer to the electrical power supply.
Light the pilot in accordance with the instructions in the Installation and Operation
Manual for the fryer being converted and verify that the pilot flame is approximately
1-inch long. If adjustment is necessary, remove the pilot flame adjustment screw cap on
the gas valve and, using a small flat-tipped screwdriver, turn the adjustment screw
counterclockwise to increase the length of the flame or clockwise to decrease it.
Reinstall the cap when adjustments are completed.
Verify that there is cooking oil or water in the frypot. Place the gas valve in the ON
position to light the burners. Verify that each burner lights and that the manifold
pressure is in accordance with the appropriate table in the Installation and Operation
Manual. Adjust the burner manifold pressure as required by turning the regulator
adjustment screw clockwise to increase the pressure or counterclockwise to reduce the
pressure.
Shut off the gas supply to the fryer. Disconnect the manometer and reinstall the
pressure tap plug.
Open the gas supply and use a solution of soapy water to verify the plug is not leaking.
Light the fryer and verify proper operation in accordance with the instructions in the
Installation and Operation Manual.
On the inside of the fryer door, apply the conversion label as close to the data plate as
possible and affix the conversion date label where it can best be seen.

Steps 3 and 4: Loosen but do not
remove the burner bolts. Disengage
the burners from the bracket and lift
them up and off the burner orifices.
Step 2: Remove the burner
heat shield to expose the
burner mounting bolts.
Step 5: Unscrew the burner orifices from the
manifold after the burners are removed and
install replacements. Use bushings to fit
smaller orifices in SM40 and SR42-series
fryers as necessary.
Step 6: Unscrew the gas
tube from the pilot burner.
Step 12: Check
burner manifold
pressure here.
Steps 7 and 8: When the gas
tube is disconnected, the pilot
orifice will drop out of the pilot
hood. Install replacement and
reconnect gas tube.
The assembly illustrated is typical of the burner manifold and pilot assemblies
for which these kits are designed. It is representative in nature and is intended
to identify the various components to be replaced. The actual assembly may
differ slightly in appearance.
