Your themostat is either bad or your hi limit is bad if the oil gets too hot the hi limit will shut everything down for safety or if the oil temp is good it is the limit control shutting everything down when if should not first thing to check to see if the in the tank matches up to the knob if so change the hi limit it if not change the thermostat

Is the pilot flame strong...and touching the thermocouple? Wind can deflect the flame and cause shut off of burners. In some older gas valves... the magnet under the high limit weakens from age and the only fix is a new valve... It can be tested with a milivolt tester, so even listening carefully for a click shortly after the pilot is turned off.

Why does fryer shut down when it hits 200 degrees


The thermostat? If your thermostat works normal, it should switch off the heater when the temperature is reached. Perhaps there is a last security, when it really gets to hot it will trip and you have can't use it till that is repaired. Perhaps you replace the thermostat. Or if a new thermostat is almost as expensive as a new fryer, buy a new fryer.

Why does the deep fryer pilot goes out


There are several possible causes of this problem, aside from a loose or damaged wire, which is uncommon. The cause in about 95% of the cases is a thermopile that has gone bad. The thermopile is the small cylinder that is attached to the pilot assembly where part of the pilot flame can contact it. It has a cable or wire going to the gas valve, high limit switch, or both. When hot enough, it produces an electrical current that keep the pilot on and allows the main gas valve to open. Be sure that you have a good pilot flame. The pilot may need to be cleaned or adjusted. The thermopile is not hard to replace in most gas fryers and not too expensive. This often starts as an intermittent problem. The second possible cause is a defective high limit. The high limit is a small rectangular device with wires going to the gas valve and a tiny stainless tube that goes through the bottom of the kettle to a sensor bulb, like the thermostat has. These are usually self resetting, but may have a small red reset button. If present check the reset. If no reset, jump the two wires and see if the fryer will now light. If so, the high limit is defective, assuming the fryer is not over temperature. If defective, replace. Do not operate the fryer in this condition as there is no over temperature protection. The next cause is if the oil is too hot, in which case the high limit will shut off both the main burner and the pilot. The pilot cannot be relit until the fryer cools down and the high limit resets. If the oil is too hot, usually over 425F, replace the thermostat. If the high limit trips when the oil is in the normal operating range, replace the high limit. The final cause is a bad gas valve. This is not too common, but the gas valve is expensive and a bit difficult to replace. Check all of the other causes first.

Hello, my Breville deep fryer has suddenly powered off because I moved it. What is the matter, please?


Some deep fryers have a magnetic quick release on the power cord. First, check to see if the power cord is securely fastened at the wall and at the base of the fryer.
Safety features of deep fryers include auto shut-off when oil overflows or reaches a certain vertical point in the fryer, or if there is too much or not enough oil. Drain the entire fryer and slowly refill it to the maximum fill line.
Some outlets, especially in bathroom and kitchen areas, have GFI (Ground Fault Interrupt) circuits which detect overload or short situations and shut off. You can see an example here. Ensure the "reset" button is pressed down. Another cause could be a tripped circuit breaker. Check the circuit breakers to ensure all of them are in the "on" position.

The pilot light is good if I turn the temp beyond 350, then the burner would go out (the natural gas would shut off at that time) Would you tell me which is the problem and where to buy...


Need more info.. but here goes. If the temperature gets too hot the unit will shut off on hi limit and will reset after it cools down some. This will cause the burner AND the pilot to go out. You need to make sure the temp isn't going over 400. The thermostat my be out of calibration causing the high limit to trip..or the high limit could be shutting the gas off prematurely. You must check the oil temperature when this is happening. It sounds like the high limit device is doing it's job and that the thermostat is letting the oil get too hot.

Problems with fryer


your problem is the thermostat is bad.the reason it shuts down is that it trips the hi limit.the hi limit is a saftey device that shuts the system down so the oil doesnt get too hot and catch on fire.remove all the oil from the tank and you should see 2 skinny metal bulbs one is the hi limit bulb the other is the t-stat bulb,make sure they are secured to the bracket.if the t-stat bulb isnt you will also have this issue,simply reattach it.let me know.
