Question about Imperial IFS40 Deep Fryer

1 Answer

Commercial Deepfryer My fryer is not kicking on when it should when the temperature drops below a certain level. I have to tap the temp control knob to get it to fire back up. Do you have schematics laying out what the switch looks like inside and do you have suggestions on how to repair it versus spending $300 canadian for a new switch. Thanks Gord

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.

My fryer will not heat up consistently. If i press the reset button, it heats up. But after heating up to a certain temp it shuts down and stops heating. There is power to the unit, it seems like a problem...

It probably is a problem with the thermostat. The reset button is probably a high limit. The high limit is a safety device to turn the fryer off if the oil gets too hot. Normally they will "trip" somewhere between 375 - 450 degrees F for commercial fryers. I would suggest placing a temperature probe in the oil and see what the oil temp is when it trips. If it trips at a temp below 375, it is a bad high limit. If the thermostat is set at 350 and the temp goes over 400 then the thermostat is bad.

High limit kicks out fryer and pilot light can

Since you've mention the pilot light goes out at 400 degree F, then we are talking a gas Deep Fryer. The deepfryer usually use at 350 degree F for chips or else. Because the oil will start breaking down its quantity of frying very quickly over that temperature. Most people set at 350 degree F. Now we comes back to your problem, First you should have a deep fryer thermometer they espcially made for deep fryer, (You only mention 400 or better ) that make me think you're only guessing. Knowing the temperature is very important, most Hi limit is set at 420 degree F.
To me it seen the Hi Ltd control is working and that is why it cutting out the pilot when it reach its limit but we don't know what temperature that when the hi limit cutting out at.
When you have a thermometer, put it in the cold oil and turn the temperature to 100 degree F to see what the temperature control cutting out at. slowly increase your setting until it cutting out at 350 degree F . If you set at 250 degree F and the thermometer already reaching 350 degreen F then don't go any further , your temperature control is defective and need to be change a new one.
This is only the first step, you still have to check out the Hi ltd control to see how good its condition is,so far your information say it cutting out at 400 or better. But you've to be sure, because it is a safety control. Hope that will help you , God Bless.

The thermostat for a GF28 is a Cecilware L099A or F. It is not repairable, but any reputable commercial parts place should have it available for around $90 US.

Deep Frier power indicator light is on but will

Most fryers have what is called a hi limit. When the oil temp reaches a certain Max temp this switch opens the circuit and will not allow the unit to heat. On commercial fryers, the hi limit has a really small red plunger button. Push it in to reset.

Make the "tap" is to the thermostat, and not the gas valve. If it is the t-stat, try cycling the knob back and forth, low to high several times. This may free up the contacts in the t-stat. But in general, if tapping "fixes" it, you need a new one.

Good luck - Mike
