What is the "kettle"?

The lighting instructions read "fill kettle before lighting." I know I am supposed to fill the vessel with water for the initial cleaning.

Not sure how to clean heating element

There are various fryer cleaners or degreasers that can be used. In most cases, the fryer is drained and wiped out, filled with water, and the appropriate amount of cleaner is added. Usually, the fryer is turned on and the cleaning solution is boiled for a time. Follow the directions for the cleaner. If heated, be careful that it does not boil over. A nylon scrub brush can be used if necessary but not metal scrubbers or utensils. Repeat if necessary. Rinse thoroughly with clean water. Use protective gloves when working with fryer cleaners and be careful not to get the cleaner on painted surfaces, aluminum depending on cleaner's instructions.

How do you replace the thermostat on a pitco fryer?

Drain the fryer. Cleaning the kettle will make things easier. Remove the thermostat knob and remove the two screws that hold the thermostat. Remove the two wires. Under the kettle you will see a double headed bolt with a tiny stainless tube running through them. Make sure that you do no confuse the one for the thermostat with the one for the high limit. Loosen or completely unscrew the small inner nut. Unscrew the large outer nut. Inside the kettle, locate the sensor bulb that corresponds to the thermostat. Remove the bracket and vertically straighten the sensor bulb. From under the kettle pull the sensor bulb and wire down and remove thermostat. Clean the fitting where you removed the bulb. Replace with new thermostat in reverse order. Avoid sharp bends in the sensor wire. Use Teflon tape on the large nut. The small nut is a compression fitting and does not need Teflon tape. Reclamp the sensor bulb and pull excess tubing from the kettle before tightening the small nut. Be careful not to cross thread the nuts. Do not over tighten the small nut. Refill the fryer and check for leaks.

How can i clean my Tefal maxi fry deep fat fryer

Hi there, the best way I have found to clean a deep fryer is to empty it of the oil and fill it up with 1/3 water and detergent, turn it on but dont close the lid, or if you do close the lid carefully monitor it otherwise it will spill over and let the water boil after about 10mins turn it off and wipe away the ****, empty the water out fill it again with just water, same again for 10mins, empty it and wipe it clean with a cloth

Can you soak heating element on a butterball electric turkey fryer?

Most heating elements are indeed submerged in oil and for that reason I would not think it would affect your unit, however I do not normally work on home model products. I am a commercial restaurant equipment dealer, working on commercial products only. Trying it out would tell with within a few minutes whether it's going to work or not? Any other questions, I would find the 800 number or website for that company and ask them directly. Sorry I couldn't be more help to you, but I just don't know that much about home model stuff.

My Delonghi D14527DZ keeps reading error when plugged in, we over filled it one time but have since let it sit empty but still won't power up.


what this means is that ,The error code indicates that the water or oil or any form of liquid have been located by the temperature sensor reading is out of range (below 23 degrees F or above 217 degrees F)

what you will have to do to fix up your fryer is to do what is call general cleaning on it miter so as to allow the lens to communicate with it with this the problem is solve .

Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

I need to know how to lite the pilot on my frymaster fryer

fry099_16_4.gifMake sure the thermostat is turned off. Units burners will light as soon a pilot in it is on. fry099_16_5.gif 3-2 Lighting the Pilot and Burner Figure 1 Figure 2 3. Push the knob in and light the pilot. Continue to hold the knob in for about 60 seconds after the flame appears on the pilot. Release the knob. The pilot should remain lit.

I suggest that you boil it out before using. This cleans the pot of any contaminants here is how to do this.
Boiling Out the frypot To ensure that the frypot is free of any contamination resulting from its manufacture, shipping, and handling during installation, the frypot must be boiled out before first use. Frymaster recommends boiling out the frypot each time the oil or shortening is changed. 1. Before lighting the burner, close the frypot drain valve and fill the frypot with a mixture of cold water and boil-out solution or detergent. Fill to the lower oil-level line. 2. Light the fryer in accordance with the lighting instructions in Section 3.1. 3. Simmer the solution for one hour.
I would attempt to paste the complete owners manual but it's just way to large. I do warranty for Frymaster is how I have access to it. Good luck

I have a 3 burner pitco gas friolator and dont know how to light the pilot any suggestions

First, never light when the pot is empty, you can fill with water if you have no oil. Open the door, check the thermostat and make sure it is turned off.(The burners will light if thermostat is on) Behind the thermostat you will see the gas valve. Turn knob to off, then to pilot. There is a notch at the pilot position. Now look up in the middle behind the burners and you will see the pilot assembly. Push in on the knob on the gas valve while you hold a long lighter close to the pilot assembly. Once the pilot lights keep holding the pilot knob in for 20 seconds. Now let off the pilot knob. Pilot should stay burning. Now turn the gas valve from pilot to on. Now turn the thermostat to desired temp and the burners will fire off and start heating.

Burner Welds

You have your burners misaligned with the tubes. Re-align the burners and the welds will hold up fine.
