SOURCE: I bought a Brinkmann Turkey

If that is what the directions say to do,hold for 30 seconds and it will stay lit and it doesn't,I would say maybe the gas valve is not open enough,since there is fire that's probably not likely because even if there was a little,it should stay lit.Is there enough air ventilation around it?I am pretty sure you do so I would say take it back and exchange it.Fire 101=air,combustible material,ignition.If you have done everything by the book more than 1 time and have nothing still,it is faulty.After 30 seconds,that is plenty of time for the gas to reach where it needs to,that is why they say 30 seconds.
Good luck! Greg

Turkey fryer won't start


Yo! the Dang pan has to be filled and on the burner which makes contact with the auto shut off sensor that is measuring the temp of the pan. The weight of the filled pan holds that Lil temp sensor down and allows the gas to continuously flow as if you were holding that Lil red button. So after hours of trying to light it without the pan you should find that it does work with the filled pan on the burner holding the red button, stick a match in the hole and let the button go and watch the blue flames flow. My gripe now is that it shuts off after the oil temp reaches 250 to 260 degrees then you have to reignite. Oh yeah my 10lb Turkey was crazy tasty.

Tip

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.

My brinkmann turkey fryer doesnt get up to boiling temp


Hi Larry, W/D here. Just got your question so I'm a bit late in getting back to you......
The amount of heat delivered at the burner is dependent on a number of things, and we'll take them in the order of most likely:
1st, The gas tip must be clear. It's possible for critters to build nests in the gas delivery piping that can plug either the gas delivery port or the air side of the mixing venturi; both will give you a reduction in BTU's. Compressed air can be used to blow out the air side of the venturi. The orifice for tha gas can be cleaned with a thin wire, or use a tip cleaner, available at a welding supply store. These are inexpensive.
2nd, The burner proper can become plugged at the ports where the mixed gas/air combusts. These can be cleaned with a small drill bit,sized to the holes, and just passed back and forth to clean them out. Compressed air works well to remove any particles remaining.
3rd, The regulator may be defective. If this is the case, you'll need to replace it as it contains no user serviceable parts.
4th, the in-line regulating valve may be sticking in the partially open position. This is difficult to diagnose, however, and is more of an assumption, after all other causes are eliminated. The cure for this is replacement also.
Hope that this was helpful to you.
Best regards, --W/D--

My flame keeps on going out on my turkey fryer it has a heat sensor on it how do i position the sensor so the flame doesnt go out


The heat sensor for your turkey fryer is preset to 375 degrees F. Once the oil reaches that temperature, the sensor turns the flame OFF, so that the oil will not boil over and ignite. Once the oil cools to 325 degrees F, the burner can be relighted . Use extreme caution when relighting the burner. Altering or repositioning the heat sensor would make the fryer unsafe to operate.

I'm sorry. I which I had better news for you. Always, err on the side of caution & safety when dealing with open gas flames.

Turkey fryer is burning rich w/ yellow flame and cannot be regulated to blue by air mix plates


first check the gas regulator is the presher right? then try cleaning out all the pipe work and the burner jets i bet you have a dead spider stuck in the gas pipe as it enters the burners,,this would upset the air to gas mix,,so its running on a rich gas mix

Cant get the flame to stay lit after holding the red button


THIS IS FROM BRIKMANN WEBSITE SUPPORTMake sure the tip of the thermocouple is located over the edge of the burner so that it gets hot when the burner is in operation. Also, check all the wiring connections to make sure nothing has come loose. It is also important to use the turkey fryer with the pot that comes with the unit. The pot must sit on the spring loaded temperature switch in order to determine the temperature of the liquid in the pot.

Searing Unit Keeps Cutting Out After Release of Knob


First I have a couple of questions for your question on how to fix your Brinkmann Gas Grill, Model 810-8501-S
===============================================.

1). Did you push the igniter for 3-5 seconds after you turned on the Sear Burner (remember, this needs to be done AFTER you've turned the control knob to HIGH).

2). Once the burner is lit, you then need to continue to PUSH & HOLD the control knob for another 30 seconds as this somehow seals the deal, thus this should solve the problem.

3). However, if this does NOT work, you may have a defective Sear Burner and the best thing to do is to contact the Customer Service Department over at Brinkmann:

Hope this helps!
