Tip & How-To about Brinkmann 815-3786-0 Turkey Fryer

Remove Thermocouple

I bought my fryer in November 2010 and it worked good for that Thanksgiving. Went to use it this year and thermocuople kept shutting off. So I used a brick to kep red button pressed in. What a pain.

After turkey day I removed my thermocouple and installed a direct conection.

I'm not sure about the exact thread size the Brinkman hose end and brass fitting on burner uses. I tried using a 1/16" NPT fitting but it is incorrect. However, I found 8mm threads to be the closet. Use thread sealant and it works great!

I bought a McMaster-Carr p/n 93590A220; Metric 18-8 Stainless Steel Coupling Nut M8 Screw Sz, 1.25mm Pitch, 38mm Length, 16mm Width, $7.95. and used it to connect the hose end to brass fitting on burner.

Yes this is considered a safety risk so modify at your own risk. No one I know of ever walks away druing use.

will not update Xbox live


Mine did this same thing for the November 1, 2010 Kinect update. I hit yes, update now and it said it could not connect and brought me back to the prompting screen. I then shut off my xbox and turned it back on and the update went right through.

My fryer won't start. I lost the manual. Last


the mounting bracket on mine cracked, and the heating element has a little switch inside the only works when its mounted correctly. I need a new bracket myself.
