SOURCE: cleaning deep fryer

You can not remove the reservoir because if you clean it out with a hot soapy spange or rag. turn the frier over and remove the plate you will see why the reservoir wont come out.

Will not power on, powers off, will not heat Pwr light out or goes out.

Like most of the problems listed on FixYa about this Deep Fryer ours worked fine the last time we used it, but we could not get the power light to come on again. I found that there is s SAFETY Micro-switch on the heating element control unit. This switch prevents the heating element from being turned on when it is not in the Fryer Pan. The accuator lever for the switch is located under the guide slides on the heating element control unit. It is a metal lever which is moved as you mount the heating element control unit on the fryer pan. You have to look closely under one of the guide ledges on the heating control unit to see it . The problem is that over time the adjustment of the lever changes as it flexes under use. I simply readjusted the lever by forming it with a pair of long-nosed pliers. CAUTION !!!!!!! You can bend the lever so far that the switch is closed all the time defeating the Safety Switch and create a hazard in that the unit will heat as soon as you plug it in whether inserted in the Fryer Pan or lying out on any surface. This might burn someone or cause a fire. Good Luck

I am trying to locate an Owners Manual for my Sunbeam Controled Heat Sauce Pan model SP 5. Works fine as deep fryer but would like to know what else it can do.

I tried looking for the Sunbeam "SP 5" and came up with a digital scale. A web search for "Controlled Heat Sauce Pan" turned up a paper cookbook How to Get the Most out of your Sunbeam Controlled Heat Sauce Pan for sale for $9.95 (go to item 15 on the page).

Rival deep fryer not heating

I have a Rival Fryer Model CF250. Was working great for weeks, then after doing a few rounds of wings it quit. All lights were off and no heat.

I took the entire fryer apart and began testing connections for resistance, voltage, etc. They are very basic machines. It appears to me that my failure has to do with a diode, this particular diode sits protected by plastic and held by a srping mechanism, I assume it is the temperature sensor.

I assume that the completed circuit relies on this sensor so it being bad has made power quit.
