    Mine is Imperial IFST-25 and I have the same problem. After cleaning with warm water, light does not come on. I lift it up about an inch and put down and sometimes it starts again.

Some fryers have safety switches on the heating element, this is so they can not be turned on when not properly installed into the unit. Check to see if there are grooves or slots on the side of the fryer which correspond to grooves or slots on heating element. Then slide the heating element into the slots on the fryer.
Safety switch in most cases can not be seen and can not be disengaged by hand. The heating element must be installed properly in order to work. It may be illustrated clearly in the owners manual.
Do not try this with out oil in the Fryer!!

How to remove heating element


In order to remove the heating element of a Cuisinart deep fryer you need to do the following:

1. Unplug the fryer.
2. Tip the fryer and put the oil into a container.
3. Put the fryer on its side, with the open top over the sink and a bowl in the sink beneath it. Leave it this way so most of the rest of the oil can drain.
4. Wipe the inside of the fryer with a paper towel.
5. Put several layers of newspaper on the counter and stand the electric deep fryer upside down on top of the paper. You will see that there are rubber feet under the base held in by screws.
6. Remove the feet and screws and you will be able to take off the base to expose the electrical workings inside.
7. Locate the heating element which has wires leading to it. Start by removing the wires leading to it and then loosen up and remove the heating element itself.

How to check if Thermal Fuse or Heating element is blown


if the fuse was bad it just wouldn't work at all,it's non resetable,it will be hard to tell what's wrong now that it's working again but if the heat did go out and come back on there's a coil that runs through the heater,this breaks and then no heat but it could make a connection again,i ve found this one time out of 10 years or you could have a loose wire but it will be hard to tell until the heat shuts down again.also when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer,it should be cleaned out and blow out the vent line at least once a year.if the heat cuts out again and you need a hand let me know,also check the wires where the cord connects to the block on the back of dryer,if wires are loose this can happen.

La pavoni stops boiling water


Run some WHITE vinegar through it, followed by plain water a few times. The heating system gets a buildup in it and requires cleaning from time to time.

No heat. all sencors in back including element check good and have been replaced but still no heat.


I'm sure you've cleaned your lint filter, but you also need to make sure there is no lint blocking the silver dryer hose. Mine gets plugged at the exit from the house and once I remove large amounts of lint, I have heat again. Also, if it's a gas dryer, is your pilot light lit?

My Vornado VH2 heater stops heating several moments after switching on. The fan runs but no heat. The heating elements never get hot but all the wiring appears to be firmly in place. The tilt shutoff...


A big problem with these heaters ans well as others is the motor driving the fan. The bearings get stiff from dirt and do not spin fast enough activating the over temp device of the heating element. Check the motor out by placing the unit in fan mode them pull the plug or turn off looking at the fan to see how many revolutions is makes with no power applied. It should rotate like five times or more indicating freeness. If it hals to a stop immediately after power is removed the motor bearings are tight.
If your handy you take apart and oil the shafts using 3inone motor lube. Clean the motor of dust and dirt drop a few drops on the shafts near the bearings then work it in by hand rotating the blades. Do this a few times reassemble then ler ripp!!!

Makes a noise when turned on.. sounds like fan or fan motor.


I would make sure the heater is unplugged then remove backscreen and foam filter. Carefully clean firter with warm water and alittle dish soap. Rinse thouroughly and air dry it. I would clean any hair lint or other debris from fan blades,motor and heating elements. You can use a tooth brush to clean heating elements.You can also use a drop or two of light grade machine oil or WD-40 on blower shaft where it enters the motor. Wipe off any excess oil and when you're sure filter is dry reassemble and try it. Hope this helps you.Thanks

How to fix leaking heating element? Water appears to be dripping from where one end of the element passes through the tub. Is there a gasket that needs replaced? Thank you D. Brush


Switch off the m/c. Remove the heater and clean the gasket seating area. Replace the gasket. If new gasket not available, clean the old gasket free from oil.

Apply rubber solution on both the ends metal parts. Allow it to dry. Now attach the heater along with gasket. Use after few hours.

Plasric dish has fused to the element


Use strong kitchen shears to cut away as much of the bulk as you can. Without gouging the round element, scrape it with the kitchen shear blade and run a short cycle. When the drying cycle has run for several minutes (you will smell that the element is heating)
open the DW and again use the shears blade edge to scrape the residual plastic from the element. You may need to repeat to get it all removed.


After you have cleaned it up, do some checking during some loads to make sure the heating element is not being turned on continuously during all cycles. You have not provided the the make/model number, so it is hard to get more specific.
