Question about Vulcan EF3 Deep Fryer

Open Question

The gas control knob on my vulcan EF3 deep fryer broke off.

The plastic piece on the gas control knob broke off so now there is just a phillips head screw. How can i light the pilot? A temporary fix would be wonderful to get me through the weekend. Please help.

SOURCE: VULCAN EF3 PILOT, ON, OFF, KNOB NOT TURNING

That knob is a pilot safty valve it is not your problem. Your problem is the m/v signal generator. This is either a thermocouple or a thermopile depending on the setup of your model. Look for a small copper line coming from the pilot area going to the pilot safty valve that is the tcouple or tpile. Replace this and I am sure you will be good to go.

Hope this helps Ya

SOURCE: Vulcan Deep Fryer, burners shut off, remains off!

sounds like your gas valve to me, you need a manometer to test it under gas pressure.

SOURCE: i have a ef3 vulcan, when reaches temp, the pilot goes out.

Set the thermostat to 350 degrees,get a thermometer and put it in the oil,when the unit shuts off look at the temp of the oil.If the temp of the oil is higher then the thermostat is bad if not the hi-limit may be.Let me know.

I have a vulcan deep fryer and when i turn the knob up to 400 max it heat the oil but will cut off if i turn down to 375. the unit has been off. what part is needing to be replaced.


I'm unclear, if it has reached 400 you would expect it to be off at 375, until the temp drops below 375.
If I have misunderstood then apologies.

Vulcan Gas Fryer Overheating


I'm confident that the issue is the thermostat. It's the only thing there to regulate temp and from the sound of it, it's not keeping up. The bulbs can gas out and then they're about as useless as an empty soda can as far as temp regulation goes.
