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.
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
