Question about Presto Kitchen Appliances - Others
Electrical Problem. There is power to the control switch, Switch appears to work. the white wire has some kind of censor, resistor, heat sensor, Fuse ?, this is attached to the side of the appliance it comes in contact with the cooking oil container. I put a ohm meter test starts out at 24 then drops to 0 at a slow rate. I put a cont unity test on it no continuity. could this be a fuse. This is on the negative side (White wire) confused

It sounds to me like it could be one of two things.
Either the magnetic cord safety thingy came slightly undone (which happens to mine constantly) or you didn't turn the timer to "always on".
The thermostat itself does not turn the heating element on, you must turn the timer to always on to preheat the oil, then when it's heated you can set what time you want to fry for.

This button should be a high limit switch. If it is a small red button mounted to a 2" x 2" or so device. You most likley have an issue with the thermostat letting it over heat. The best thing to do would be to replace both the thermostat and the high limit for safety reasons.

You should determine how many amps the unit is pulling, you will need an ammeter to do this. Continuity through the internal circuit breaker does not determine the current being pulled by fryer only that it can pull current. If the fryer is pulling more than 50 amps the problem will be in the fryer, if it is less than 50 and the breaker trips you could have a faulty breaker.
