Question about Frymaster Dean SR42G Deep Fryer
Hello, no, the valve has not been welded on, however, it does take a bit of effort to get it off the frypot, I usually use a socket type wrench or ratchet to remove them, makes it a bit easier. As far as the sealant goes, if it is leaking out of the handle seal, just get a new valve, if it is leaking from the threaded pipe of the frypot then a good sealant will do, they use sealant from the factory, usually meant for the temp, and stainless steel.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

There is a seal inside of there that prevents it from leaking. The seal has failed.
I would advise against any type of repair using a sealant. If there should ever be any sickness found to be the result of using the sealant, then you or the owner will be held liable.
By a new valve, and if I recall correctly, this is a stainless or nickel plated valve.
Reply back if you have any questions.
