SOURCE: fryer isn't turning on. tried reseting. still no luck

Hello. Here is a wiring diagram for your unit:

Check to see that the thermostat clicks at or about just above on, try again the reset, sometimes it is hard to push in all the way. If that does not correct the problem, make sure your power is on, do any indicators light? It could be as simple as a burnt of wire, you will need to check the resistance of the parts to tell any more, thermostat, and hi-limit should read closed (zero). The element should read 4 to 15 ohms each, there are 3 in the tube. The relay coil should be anywhere from 200 to 1200 ohms, the contacts open. I have seen broken wires in the pivot elbow where power comes up the the element head.
Hope that helped, and thank you.

SOURCE: Frymaster fryer keeps calling for help on electronic keyboard.

I Found a manual on line for your electronic controls. The HELP display is telling you that you have a heating problem. The book says to shut the fryer off and call the frymaster Technical Service: 800-551-8633. Ask for a service tech. They could probably talk you through some things you could check. If you have and know how to use a voltage/ohm meter and a few tools they may even troubleshoot it over the phone with you. You might want to check all the safety switches first like oil drain valve switch. Listen to it when the HELP display comes on and see if the flame is still burning or trying to light, is the fan running? These things will help you explain what its doing. Hope this helps. kstfas P.S. If you are not familiar with electric and how easy it will make your hair curl......... HA. Do Not Attempt any tests that involve live circuits. Good Luck®ion=default&article=onlineliterature.xml

SOURCE: Frymaster Pilot not lighting

first thing I would check is to make sure the quick disconect on the gas hose is fully connected,and that the cut off valve is tured on.Sometimes the orifice in the pikot assembly can become stopped up.(where you light it by the burner)you can check there by undoing the gas line at the compression nut on the assembly.the hole is really small and you can use a small needle to clear it.

SOURCE: Regulator problems

Sounds like your regulator is faulty, I would start there. Be sure any regulator you have installed is installed correctly, not backwards as reversed regulators will not work properly. Also be sure to keep regulators clean, there are breather holes in regulators to break vacuum when the regulator opens and closes, if these are clogged the regulator will not open or close properly. Hope this is helpful.

Is it dangerest when your oven beeps f2

Typically an oven beeps when the interior temperature macthes the temperature where you set the dial. This is an audible signal to that fact and particularly helpful when you need to pre-heat the oven. For example it you want to cook something at 350 degrees, you set the dial at 350. When your oven reaches that temperature it beeps to let you know. Some cooking directions tell you to preheat your oven. In that case, when you set the dial to 350 and wait for the know you are safe to start your cooking process because the oven is now pre-heated to the temperature you set. If your recipe requires a pre-heated oven, and you don't wait for the beep, your taking a guess at what temperature you're cooking your food. Additionally, if you want to know what the internal temperature of oven is and your oven is simply turn you dial setting and listen for the beep. Again, if you set your oven at 350 and you want to know how hot your oven is... slowly turn the dial setting. If the oven beeps at 275 then that's how hot your oven has gotten. To let it finish heating to 350 just reset the dial and wait for the beep.

I have had 8 pitco gas self-filtering fryers for 10 years. I'm not sure what the model they are, but hopefully it won't matter. Recently, especially after boiling out, we have had a problem with...

Two things when you clean out the pots.....Number one is, make sure you rinse all the soap or cleaning solution out really well, and I mean WELL... any left over residue will ruin your new oil, and number two, your oil temp should never be above 325, especially with new oil.... Sounds like you are burning your oil up with too high of a temperature. Actually, there is another option here too,
have you ever tried a fryer additive? Like Miroil is one....? You add this liquid prior to lunch or dinner, according to how much oil is in the fryer, how many hours a day the fryer is on and how many days a week you are open....Anyway, if you are interested, we could help you with the formula, and from that point on, you never dump a whole vat of oil again. Each day, you would drain off a pre-measured amount of oil, and lets say you have a chicken fryer, and a fish fryer. You would drain off the chicken fryer and dump into the fish fryer, and put the same exact amount back into the chicken fryer of new oil. It might be a 2 cup measurement or alittle more, but the point is by freshing your fryer each day, you will never dump it all out again. They also recommend oil temp at 325, no higher, and making sure all soap residue is rinsed out completely before adding any oil.
By doing this, your oil will look golden all week long, and you will no longer have the darker oil as the week goes by, with the really dark, crappy stuff right before you end up dumping it...Hence, your products will always look the same too, light golden, absorb alot less grease during cooking, and again, that's all week long, not just first part of the week....If you are interested in trying the additive, I can price you some, or you can go online yourself? Not one person I have ever set up on this additive program has ever complained or stopped using it so far...They love it, and it really works.

If you have new thermostats and a high limit switch, you might have had a bad thermostat before, and your temperature was really alittle lower with the older one? Now, that you have a new one, and it's working correctly, maybe that 350 is too hot? If the other one was bad, and running alittle less hot, say 300 or 325 all along, and you just never knew it, now you have one that's registering your temperature at the correct reading and it's too hot? Or, another scenerio could be your tech installed a bad thermostat? That happens too, where a new thermostat is actually bad to start with, and maybe it's off alittle the other way? LIke 350 is actually 450? If you have other questions, or are interested in the additive, my name is Susan, with Restaurant Equipment Outlet, 888-542-5959 and I would be happy to asist you in any way, and I'd love to know what you end up finding out on your fryers.... Thanks, Susann REO

The pilot is on but the switch won't turn the fryer on. The gas is on but it just wont fire up? Dean Fryer

I can tell you from my own experience with fryers, that they take quite some time to heat up....before lighting.... The probe takes some time to get hot, before it will kick on and light. You normally have to hold the light button on for some time, before the manual fryers will light. I have helped many a customer who cannot seem to get their manual gas fryers to light, and normally it's because they don't hold the light button down long enough. The sensor in there takes alittle time to heat up and it tells the fryer it's time to light. I think people get alittle scaried with gas and just don't hold it down long enough. Try holding that button in longer first, then light it... It should work. If not, call us and we'll try to walk you through it.... Our service tech is Ray, and I'm Susan with Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, Ohio, 888-542-5959. Thanks and good luck, Susan

My Tri Star 4050 fryer is causing soot to collect on the ceiling of my trailer.

You are cooking too hot....Turn the temperature down, and if it still does that, try using it outside or under a vent or hood... That's generally a better idea, to use the fryer under a vent, so it can vent that hot, oily air outside to start with....Thanks, Susan

Commercial deep fryer keeps getting to hot, having to reset, is it possible to replace thermostat ??

Hi there.
Your fryer may have problem in cutting off the heating element power (electric fryer) or burner flame (gas fryer) for temperature regulation which is thermostat's main function.Thermostat is replaceable, you have to identify the manufacturer of your fryer to get the exact component.

Fryer wont lite when temp knob is turned up to 350 range pilot is lit

Observe the thermostat when set to higher temp, you should hear a clicking sound as the mechanical contacts inside closes, at this point, burners should fire up.
Thermostat can be tested by checking the continuity across its terminals (using an ohm meter) when set to a temperature higher than the oil temperature.
Also, the thermopile must be free of soot or any form of dirt and the pilot must have good flame quality, gas pressure should meet the nameplate's requirement.

Star deep fryer.

Those thermostat bulbs are the thermostat and hi-limit bulbs.They need to be secured to the fryer.The hi limit is tripping out because its sensing that the oil is too hot.Even though the oil isnt that hot the hi limit thinks it is.
