Make sure you have a nice blue flame in burner the more yellow that it is the less heat it put out. To adjust the flame there are air control slides on the burners there the flame comes out. Open or close them to get the proper setting. You will see the flame go yellow and blue, the bluer the better. The gas pressure could be off which you have to check with a manometer 3 lbs per water column on natural gas and 11 lbs. on l.p. gas. Check the gas valve inlet screen for dirt. If the burner system is operating properly then you have a bad or dirty t-stat

I need an instruction manual for a cooks essentials air fryer

How to Use Your Fryer:
  • Remove all packaging materials, sticker, and labels.
  • Clean the basket and pan with hot water, soap and a non-abrasive sponge. These parts are dishwasher safe.
  • Wipe the inside and outside of the appliance with a clean cloth.
  • Place the air fryer on a flat and even surface.
  • Put the basket in the pan.
  • Plug unit in to an approved wall socket.
  • Place the ingredients in the basket and then put the basket and pan back into the appliance. The fryer LED will light up.
  • Set your cooking time and temperature by either choosing one of the 8 presets or manually set it with the "+" or "-" buttons. See "Cooking Guide" to determine the right time and temperature.
  • Once you have set your cooking time and temperature, press the "Start" Button.
  • The heating icon and fan icon will be blinking and this means that the fryer is starting and is circulating the hot air in the fryer. NOTE: During hot air frying, you will notice that the heating up icon will blink and stays from time to time. When the heating icon is on, it means that the temperature inside the fryer has reached the set temperature. When the heating icon is blinking, it means that the temperature inside the fryer dropped and is below the set temperature and is currently heating up to the reach the set temperature.
  • Some ingredients may need to be shaken halfway through the cooking cycle (see "Cooking Guide"), To do this, pull the pan out of the air fryer by the handle, the air fryer will automatically shut down. Then shake the contents in the basket, then slide the pan back into the air fryer and it will resume the cooking cycle. CAUTION: Do not press the button on the handle during shaking; this will detach the basket from the pan.
  • When the cooking time has been reacher, the air blower will stop in 20 seconds.
  • Pull the pan out of the fryer and place it on a pot holder. The cooking pan is VERY HOT do not put on surface that can burn. NOTE: Oil from the ingredients will gather in the bottom of the pan, so be careful when pulling the pan out of the fryer.
  • To remove the ingredients, press the button on the handle of the pan to detach the basket. DO NOT TURN THE PAN OVER. PLACE ON A POT HOLDER.
  • Upon placing the cooking basket back into the air fryer, the air fryer will automatically go to the previous cooking cycle and will repeat the previous cooking cycle, press the cancel button to stop and reset the air fryer if desired.

Hi, I have 3 models 14S and want to convert to propane I changed orfices how do I change control valve to propane ?

On the gas valve is a regulator assembly. On Robertshaw models you change the assembly (held in place by 2 screws). On a Honeywell valve you change the spring inside the regulator assembly.

Either Pitco SG line or any frymaster. These may be a tad more costly upfront but will save you down the road in repair costs and also parts will be available for a long time to come. I favor the pitco sg35cs myself this is a simple fryer very easy to repair and the parts costs are very resonable. As far as operating cost go in the fryer world they all are around the same.

Pitco Frialator Model 14S

Excellent reason to use Dormont flex lines.
If water gets to your combination valve (the thing with the on-off knob,) it should be replaced. Can you hear gas hissing? If there is gas at the orifice, it should light. check to see that all of the air is purged. Can you smell gas?

Recovery time

If the unit starts off fine, and then loses some of it's heat, I would suspect that your regulator is freezing up. This can be caused be a bad tank or regulator. You'll have to swap it out to test it.

If the gas supply is good (reg and tank), you need to inspect the heat exchange tubes. Look where the flame shoots through the fryer. Use a flashlight. Look for LARGE amounts of black soot. If it is sooty, blow it out with compressed air. Once you get it cleaned out, you need to add more air to your mix. There should be a disk at the base of the burner.

If you have access to a manometer and orifice drills, you could adjust the flame to it's maximum. But as I said, I expect you have a regulator problem.

SG-14 backfires when turning on

I seen this problem over and over again, the best and simplest way to fix if to just clean your burners. Removed one by one and get them clean with hot pressure water. Most of the time, this easy and fast job will resolve the problem, and don't forget, get those burners cleaned every 6 mos. It requires a 1/2 in socket.
