Oil Level Stains

I clean fryers in restaurants.We use a food grade spray cleaner to remove all stains. Sometimes we lightly sand with an abrasive to remove anything stuborn. One fryer ,the same one every week has a dark burn stain at the oil level line only, that is now impossible to remove. This partcular franchise has the same frying menu as others I do, yet I have this problem with this 1 fryer only,out of 100s I clean.

I think there is something different, an impurity in the metal. The fryer says stainles, but it is a very dull finish
Your thoughts please

    I have a reoccurring stain on the back-splash of one of my units, scrubbing bubbles or oven cleaner work great I use cameo ss cleaner at boil out time...mine is due to a hot spot in the "chimney." My next project is to learn how to take off and clean the chimneys. Oh yes, the dull ss is called Mild Stainless. It is actually a different grade made for the high heat. It should not be shinny.

Manufactures are constantly changing the properties in the stainless steel. They are dropping the nickel and alloy contents that they used to use, that's where the dull finish is coming from !
All manufactures are changing there materials to compete in this industry. These units may have been manufactured at diferent times.

PUMP NOT STARTING TO RETURN OIL


I have 20 years experience on commercial FRYMASTER fryers in fast-food restaurants, not knowing what you have, I will share what I look for. First check for reset on pump. if pump runs, check for blockage starting in the outlet of vat. Kinks in hoses are hidden sometimes by metal braiding covering outside. Filter is put together with filter media out of order of assembly. If motor is close-coupled to pump, oil migration can seize motor bearing.

Cleaning insrtructions


Gp to a restaurant equipment store or a food broker type place, or I can ship the product to you via UPS, but there are prodcuts developed specifically for cleaning fryers out, like Mr. Muscle, Degreaser, etc. You would fill your fryer up w/water, add the solution, like a packet of Mr. Muscle, and continue to boil the mixture for some time in the fryer.... After it's boiled for some time, use a fryer brush on your heating elements, etc, which you can also buy at a local store or I can ship one to you. When the fryer is clean, you will drain the mixture out and rinse several times. You want to make sure you get all the soap residue out of the fryer or it will destroy your oil after you add it in and try to cook with it...Rinse several times, then add your oil and you should be ready to go. You can also drop your fryer baskets in the mixture just like you are cooking and the boil out product will clean them too.. Be sure to drop them again as you rinse the whole unit out.. Hope this helps. Buy a couple of green pads too, and they should help you with any outside baked on stuff
Good luck,
Susan

How to remove and clean burners of soot


You can purchase deep fat fryer cleaning solutions in a powder form or liquid....we sell them and other companies do too. The key is to boil your product, along with water in the fryer, using a L shaped brush to add in the cleaning process. You may need to do this a couple of times, if your fryer is really bad. If you boil it out, drain it and it's still really cruddy, then use a green pad and scrub what you can manually, then fill it back up, use whatever product you desire, boil it out again, using your L brush too. That will help clean out the drain hole where you drain the grease out, as well as the burners too. This is not an easy job, so if you think 15 or 20 minutes will do it, it won't... It's tough to clean restaurant equipment, as it's used normally 24/7 and not taken care of very well normally. Spills are burnt on, nothing is ever wiped up, grease spills over the sides of the fryer, and the crumbs in the bottom are burnt over and over, as some people don't strain their grease, just using it until it becomes unuseable... It's a tough job, but one we do quite often, and you just have to put in some elbow grease, use your cleaners, along w/the boil out method, a green pad or 2 or 3, and when you are satisfied and done.... Be super sure to rinse all the chemicals out of the frypot before you add any oil to it. Leaving ANY soap in the bottom of the frypot will help to break down your oil and spoil it way before it should, and that's expensive to replace over and over. Keep your temperature down to 325 degrees and that will help you save your oil as well. If you want to really extend your oil, buy and use a additive like Miroil. This is a oil additive that is used to extend the life of your oil, on a daily basis, sometimes twice a day, depending on your hours of operation/business. This additive , along with keeping your temp at 325, straining your oil, and rinsing your pot out well before adding oil will extend your oil so well, that you will never dump a whole vat of grease again....You will get a formula that will tell you how much grease to pull each day and you will replace that amount with new oil....If you have 2 fryers or 3, you would pull oil from your appetizer fryer and put it in the fish fryer, dumping that oil, whatever the measure is, like 3 cups or whatever. The idea is that your appetizer fryer has the lighter cooking foods in it and the fresher oil. The fish fryer can handle the older oil a bit better. All fryer foods will look/taste/ much better all week long, without your foods getting darker as the week goes on... Your foods will also absorb less oil, if you keep that temperature down to 325 instead of 350 or higher. That higher temp also helps to burn your oil up quicker, so keep it down....
I've seen this product work, and every customer I ever sold it to, never stopped using it once they started, and the cost is under a dollar a day.... Your savings are huge, as oil is one of your most expensive costs in the food industry. If you need a place to buy the additive or the fryer clean out products or the L brush, we sell all of it and can ship directly to you. Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, OH 888-542-5959.
Happy Frying...

Need a inistruction book to see how to strip iot down for cleaning


You don't say what type of fryer you have and that will make a huge difference, however you can also just use a deep fat fryer cleaner and boil it out... Depending on the size/model of your fryer, you will add a certain amount of ths product and then turn your thermostat on to high heat in order to make product boil. After it boils/cleans the unit out, you empty it, and rinse several times, and once all the soap residue is gone, add oil back in... If you have a removable pot, then just take it out and wash it in the sink... I do sell this product, in a powder or a gel...If I can help, please call me at 888-542-5959...

I just need to know how to completly clean the bottom of my imperial fryer


Are you talking about the actual burners? They make a L shaped brush that you can use to get around the burners themselves, and a quick tip is to clean the fryer warm.... Once you heat up a griddle or fryer, the cleaning gets substantially easier. They also make either liquid or dry powder cleaning additives, which also help with the cleaning... Once cleaned, make sure you rinse all the soap residue out of the frypot, as that will help to quickly break down your oil, once that new oil is heated up. Another tip is to ony turn the temperature up to 325, not 350, as that also helps to break down your oil. Keep in mind, no matter what yu do, your fryer will never look clean again.... Even the clean, used ones look alittle used after some use and never look shiny new again. If you need any of the cleaning solutions, I do sell them and would be happy to ship some to you... Our individual packets of liquid Mr. Muscle cleaning solutions run $1.95 each and for a 30-40 lb fryer, you need two per cleaning. The directions says to drain oil out and rinse to clean out loose soils, fill w/'water to oil fill line, and get water boiling. You add the Mr. Muscle while filling w/water.... Boil at about 225 temperature for 10-30 minutes. (225 degrees keeps it from boiling over). While it's boiling, gently use a fryer brush or scraper to remove baked on soils. You can also buy the powder version, which is $11.95 for a 9lb jug... Fryer brushes are $24.95 and can withstand alittle of the high heat.... I stock all of these items and can ship to you, if desired. Try this anyway, whereever you end up buying your products and this should work for you...This is how we clean the dirty deep fryers we get in and we've never had any trouble. Our phone number is 888-542-5959, and we are Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, Ohio. We sell new/used equipment, furniture, smallwares, just about anything you need for a food service business.

The stack in the rear has carcoal build up, also the lower components are covered with caked on grease


You really need to clean this up before using it... Built up grease will catch fire, and it's fairly easy to clean this. You can buy some deep fryer cleaner at a restaurant equipment type store near you or I can ship some to you, but it's easier to use a product intended for that use... They have liquids or a powder available and you will want to turn your fryer on to boil it out, with your cleaner in it. Any restaurant equipment will clean up alot easier if you have it on low or 200 degrees...including the outside of the unit. For super built on crud, they have sprays also you could spray up inside the flue area, that will eat away that grease build up. You will have to clean that out however, and they also carry brushes if you need one of those to reach it... It will take some elbow grease, and some patience, but we clean up equipment all the time that normal people would look at and throw away. When we're done with it, it looks brand new again... Good luck.. Susan 888-542-5959.

Pilot ligt wont stay light


My suggestions,

take the electrical wiring off the terminals of the gas valve one at a time, and clean the contacts with a food grade electronics contact cleaner and degreaser. Make sure all wiring is tight, not loose fitting, and clean. The thermo coupler, or sometimes used thermopile (multiple thermocouples in one) generates a small amount of electrical current when heated. The oil residue on a gas valve's electrical contacts SHORTS OUT THE MINUTE CURRENT GENERATED not giving enough current to hold the valve open.

The next thing, how high is your pilot set? If the flame is not striking the thermo pile properly, if its not directally in the flame, it will not generate enough current to hold the gas valve open. Sometimes a dirty thermo pile just cleaned up with sandpaper will work again (accumulated material acts as an insulator)

If you have access to a very high end electrical meter that is capable of measurung MICRO AMPS (very few) then you should check the actual current ouput of the themo pile.

Another thing, the gas valve solonoid MAY BE DEFECTIVE! IF YOUR THERMO PILE is of the screw in type vrs screwed on type, remove the gas valve end, degrease the inside and also that of the thermo pile surfaces, then use the CLEAN errasser of a pencil to clean both the inside of the gas valve connection, and also that of the thermo pile contacts. NO ERRASSER RESIDUE CAN BE LEFT ON EITHER SURFACE! Do not touch these contact surfaces with your hands because even the resistance of the body oil on these surfaces can mean the differance between it working or not!

The thermo pile or a thermo couple generates a minute amount of current that holds the gas valve on.

PS: and that didn't even cost you a dime, I'm off to an emergewncy service call to fix yet another McDonalds deeping fryer (don't call them beeping fryers cause they beep either!!!)

From http://www.rivalproducts.com/help.aspx?helpNav=1: How can I clean my fryer? - Unplug from outlet and allow unit to cool. Always turn control to OFF then disconnect plug from wall outlet BEFORE disconnecting BREAK-AWAY CORD. - Clean the outside of the fryer and lid with a damp cloth. CAUTION: Do not use abrasive pads or alcohol to clean the fryer. - Remove basket handle, if one is included. Frying basket can be washed in hot soapy water. - Rinse and towel dry carefully. - Pour out oil and discard properly. - Wipe the inside with paper towels to absorb excess grease. Wash interior of fryer with hot soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly. CAUTION: Never immerse the fryer in water or wash in running water.
