Pull the temp knob off and you should see a small screw in the middle of the stem. This is your calibration screw. Turn it about 1/4 turn to increase the temp. If you don't have one, then you may have an element that is out. Can you take the bottom off to see it. Also, there may be a wire that is not making good connection.

I have a natural gas hookup and my grill takes a long time to heaat up (15 minutes) and max degrees is 350 - 375. I found dust in the connection hose blew ut out. Also took grill apart and cleaned...


Unfortunately, that's the way it does on Natural Gas, in an outdoor environment. The reason being, Propane Gas burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas in an outdoor environment. Of course, on the plus side, you don't have to get tanks refilled. With that said, the thermometer on the grill may be faulty.

To test this theory, buy an inexpensive oven thermometer (the kind that can be placed on an oven rack) and place inside the grill, when you're preheating it with the lid closed. Once you grill thermometer reaches 350 degrees, open the grill hood and compare it the two temperature readings. If the oven thermometer is reading significantly higher, then you no the grill thermometer is faulty.

Hope this helps you get back up to temperature.

The temp control tops out at 390. The oil doesn't get hot enough to make french fries


You need a good external thermometer to check your oil temp.
Everything fries at 350-375 degrees.
Any hotter and the oil burns.

My fryer will not heat up consistently. If i press the reset button, it heats up. But after heating up to a certain temp it shuts down and stops heating. There is power to the unit, it seems like a problem...


It probably is a problem with the thermostat. The reset button is probably a high limit. The high limit is a safety device to turn the fryer off if the oil gets too hot. Normally they will "trip" somewhere between 375 - 450 degrees F for commercial fryers. I would suggest placing a temperature probe in the oil and see what the oil temp is when it trips. If it trips at a temp below 375, it is a bad high limit. If the thermostat is set at 350 and the temp goes over 400 then the thermostat is bad.

How do you set the temperature


If you have an air conditioner with a temperature display, use the up or down arrows on the touch pad to change the temperature setting.

However, if you have an air conditioner with only a dial that goes from 1 to 8 (or whatever number), turn the dial up as high as it goes and put the fan speed on high. When the desired comfort level is reached, slowly turn the dial down until the compressor just shuts off. You will be able to hear when this happens.

If the temperature gets a bit too warm turn the dial up in small increments and wait an hour or so to see if your comfort level is reached.

Do not know how to use


Oil darkens with use the oil food molecules burn when subjected to high prolonged heat.
When frying foods such as fish or chicken use the oil once.

Do not filter oil over to reuse. Storing the oil in the refrigerator may extend the life of the oil, this should not be done ever. This process of chilling the oil and then burning the oil to room temperature causes excessive splattering furing the heat up.

Storing the covered oil in a cool dark place, for up to three months. ( remember to check oil when you use for color, smell, or excessive foaming. Throw out if there is signs of all the above.

This unit has a warranty for one year from the day of purchase.


Cooking:

When starting let unit reheat 7-10 minutes. This will get the heat to desired temperature. Re4ady light will cycle on/off during frying as temperature fluctuates due to food load.
Types of foods cooking: temperatures and time of cooking

Chicken strips 375 F. 5-8 minutes

Chicken pieces, bone-in 375 F. 15-20 minutes

Fish, battered 340 F. 8-10 minutes

French fries, frozen 375F. 3-5 minutes

F375F. 3-5 minutes

Onion rings 375 F. 3-5 minutes

Shrimp, breaded 375 F. 2-5 minutes
When frying frozen food if iced rub off lose as this can make the temperature of oil cool down. Pre-cooked frozen food cooks faster and does not come out oily.


I cannot wait to start cooking in mine as I got it for a christmas gift. Great recipes in the owners manual:

Apples fritters yum yum,beer batter for fish or chicken, deep fried chicken , chicken Kiev, quick doughnut made from biscuits, add topping of ground cinnamon and suger.
