I bought pitco frialator and am testing it with water when it reaches my set temp of 200 degrees the screen shows "DROP" but the burners keep heating. What do i need to replace. Thanks

There are a number of things here I would need more info on before I could help you....OK, you say you're using water, but oil heats up differently, so you really can't substitute one for the other... Secondly, are you setting the thermostat to 200 degrees and expecting the unit to shut off? I'm guessing you have a digital unit, which is telling you to drop the product down into the oil, at 200 degrees? If that is correct, 200 would not be a correct temperature for frying, but if you set it there to start with, maybe it's heating up just fine? The fryer knows when you drop product, the temperature will go down, so it staying on doesn't surprise me... That could be completely normal.... I would need to know the model and serial of this unit in order to make heads or tails of this and what exactly is wrong h ere? Do you think it should be getting hotter? Are you setting it to 350 and it only goes to 200? Remember oil takes longer to heat up than water and the density if also alot different than oil. One cannot be used to replace the other.... The water will heat up quickly and cool alot quicker too. If your temperature is off, then the first thing to check would be the thermostat, but I wouldn't just yet.... I need more info first to diagnose your issue. Thanks, Susan REO

Wont chill wine

This is definitely the strangest request for help.. Maybe you need to understand a basic fundamental that : an appliance that produces 500 degrees of heat for frying will not chill a bottle of wine.

Does not heat to 375 degree. cooked but soggy fries. green ready light goes on and off. tried preheating 20 minutes. not much better.

you can fry fries at 325 degrees.pre heat for 25 min. rinse fries with water first, fry for 11-14 min. should be golden and crunchy. Deep fry guy :) Fresh potato recipe after fries are fried sprinkle w/seasoned salt &little red pepper

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.

Friar heats up to correct temp but doesn't maintain

The first thing I would check is the hi limit.If that not out then I would try to a temp. gauge that will read above 350 degrees.maybe the thermostats is not right. Reading to low for the temp.
