Re: Fuse keeps tripping

The first thing to do would be to get an electrician to your home to check that the problem is not with your supply. If you ask nicely then the same guy could probably check your fryer for short circuits - the most likely culprit if the problem is intermittent is the plug on the power cord, the cable and the connection inside the fryer where the cord goes in - check that all these are ok. The other possible cause could be a faulty element, however this is unlikely to be an intermittent fault, and it would usually get worse quickly to the point of not working at all. Hope this helps - please post again if not :)

What is the reason for the reset button keep poping out on the dean sm35gm

Hi there!
Reset button of hi-limit switch will only pop-out when its sensing bulb sensed temperature higher tha 450F (trip temperature of hi-limit). Theramostat may be bad allowing oil to reach temp above 450F causing hi-limit to trip-off or hi-limit itself is bad tripping-off at temperature lower than 450F.
Check also the position of the sensing bulb of the hi-limit, it may be positioned touching the heat tube (for gas fryer) or heating element (for electric fryer) that's why it prematurely trips-off.

Have a fryer that i have a problem keeping lit. the reset button when oushed keeps clicking once you get it to stop the fyer will lught however only stays lit a few minutes. not sure if its that swutch or...

Unless the fryer is running at 400 degrees or higher its that switch that is bad. That is a high limit and should not trip off unless the fryer gets close to the flash point of cooking oil which is in excess of 400 degrees for most oils. If I'm not mistaken the high limit is set to trip at 450. It's also a good idea to check the temperature of the oil when its working properly. It should run at 350 and its common to see the flames go off at about 360 and then come on again around 340 to maintain an average of 350. A bad high limit is a common problem.

Actify trips out electricity at fuseboard as soon as turned on-remedy?

Check the rating of the fuse or circuit breaker where the fryer is connected, it should be at least 20% higher than the nameplate ampere rating of the fryer.
Also check the heater and power cord for short circuit using an ohm meter, replace if zero resistance is read on either of the two.

My ge deep fryer will not turn on


Most of these fryers have trip on the rear of the element unit. Search for the trip and reset, if this does not sort out your problem check the fuse in the plug if you are in Europe.

Star deep fat fryer model #EM14

You should determine how many amps the unit is pulling, you will need an ammeter to do this. Continuity through the internal circuit breaker does not determine the current being pulled by fryer only that it can pull current. If the fryer is pulling more than 50 amps the problem will be in the fryer, if it is less than 50 and the breaker trips you could have a faulty breaker.
