Question about Vulcan EF3 Deep Fryer

1 Answer

Vulcan fryer gas control knob will not turn

The unit had been disconnected for cleaning around and under it. The gas control knob was left in the on position. Once they connected the unit you can't turn the knob from on to off and then on again as the lighting instructions dictate. You can't light the pilot either. Please help.

    The knob was lubricated and freed with a pair of pliers. A problem was observed with the valve similiar to the problem resulting in a recall for hundreds of Robertshaw valves. However, the year did not qualify for the recall after everything else matched up. That is a great price on that valve which is in fact a 7000 series. The lowest I have found is 174 so far.

Gas valve knob continues to turn, won't lite pilot, although knob pushes in fine


Replace the knob. There is a groove that the knob uses to put the valve core in the right position.

Vulcan Gas Fryer Overheating


I'm confident that the issue is the thermostat. It's the only thing there to regulate temp and from the sound of it, it's not keeping up. The bulbs can gas out and then they're about as useless as an empty soda can as far as temp regulation goes.

I have a vulcan deep fryer and when i turn the knob up to 400 max it heat the oil but will cut off if i turn down to 375. the unit has been off. what part is needing to be replaced.


I'm unclear, if it has reached 400 you would expect it to be off at 375, until the temp drops below 375.
If I have misunderstood then apologies.

Watermark Grille pilot prob


Your question is posted under vulcan fryers but the comment refers to a grill. Either way, I think your problem is gas pressure and/or supply related. You may need a new regulator, you valve may not be open all the way or any quick couplings you may have are not coupled completely or are faulty. What is happening is there is enough pressure to keep the pilot going, but when the larger route for the burner gas is opened the gas is quickly used up without proper resupply. A regulator installed backwards can have this same effect. Hope this helps

low gas pressure to unit must check and see if gas valve in back of unit is fully on or same for regulator if there is one if the gas valve is open and the unit has a regulator ajust regulator regulator with center screw clockwise all the way down this will give you more pressure

VULCAN EF3 PILOT, ON, OFF, KNOB NOT TURNING


That knob is a pilot safty valve it is not your problem. Your problem is the m/v signal generator. This is either a thermocouple or a thermopile depending on the setup of your model. Look for a small copper line coming from the pilot area going to the pilot safty valve that is the tcouple or tpile. Replace this and I am sure you will be good to go.

Hope this helps Ya
please rate me.
