    I know this has been a relatively common problem for a while but somthings going on at pitco. these things are doing this more now than ever. Last 2 months I have ran into this no less than 16 of these.

    Might save the new guys some time with the fix here:

    Pull burners, suck soot, clean burners

    Loosen the two screws that hold the maifold on and make sure that the manifold is all the way down in the slotted hole.

    Bend the manifold towards you with a big adjustble

    Put burners back and bend the manifold forward while its running to tune the flame in.

    It’s super easy to fix but one of our new guys spent way to much time trying to figure this one out the other day haha.

    Wait a minuet. What do you mean by “Bending” the manifold back? How about a complete and accurate model. Pitco doesn’t show a 40 D, but they do still make the economy 35 and 45 C with the cast burners.Not sure what burner you are talking about. But yes, I have seen the manifold bent on a 45 C Making the gas stream inpinge on the side of the venturi of the burners. And it will burn rich from it.

    I looked around, and see sellers calling them 40 D’s, But I have not been able to find a Pitco reference to that model.

    Oh, I’m thinking your talking about the naturally aspirated vertical cast burner that has the oval ring Let me know if that’s the type.

    Yes they’re the cheap cast iron burner models with the fabricated manifold. They’re sold direct to customers and they’re installing them selves. I corrected my title to say sooted rather than “shooted”

    Attached you’ll see the correct and accurate data tag. At the shop we just refer them as “the cheap milvolts” 40ds are extremely prevalent here in their homeland of NH.

    Amazing, it looks like the ld 35C and 45 C Economy design made into one in the middle. Wonder why they don’t have it in there documentation pages yet. Have you seen a difference i between the C and D?

      Not sure why they don’t, is kind of a pain haha. Not sure on the differences either to be honest. All of them look the same haha

      I previously have been told the below…

      “C” model has a 1-12 Controller

      “D” Model has a Digital Controler

    Good info, @ihateyeremyemail-com.

    That was hard to type, though. Can you change your name?

    All, repeat, ALL gas equipment has to be commissioned by a trained gas specialist. During that commissioning they will do the final mixture adjustments, safety checks, venting checks and leak test’s. One can not expect that a off the shelf machine will preform correctly without this due to variation of air pressure and fuel supply. In most states one has to be licensed or certified to do this. To self hook up and just fire one is dangerous.
