Question about Star Manufacturing TSF-6575 Deep Fryer

1 Answer

Star deep fat fryer model #EM14

Fryer keeps tripping circuit breaker. There is a rather large "re-cirk-it" switch inside. Manufactured by HEINEMANN Electric Company When checked with a meter shows continuity between P1 and P2. None of the fuses in the fryer are blown, but it trips a 50 amp breaker in the power panel. If this is in fact the problem, where do I get a new one? Thanks

Re: star deep fat fryer model #EM14

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.

Autofry trips the breaker when i turn it on. do i need a new power cord?

First thing to check would be your circuit. Fryers take a lot of amperage. I am guessing you need at least a 20 amp circuit for this fryer and if you are running it on a 15 amp circuit it is going to pop all of the time.

I have a star deep fryer that over heats the oil and then trips the breaker on the back of the fryer.

Has to be a stuck thermostat or a bent or broken bulb, tube in the fryer oil. When replacing the control be careful not to bend the tube to much to pinch it closed. This is a very small pipe. Check by turning the thermostat from low to high and see if it will turn off the fryer. It could be out of calibration but unlikly when the high limit kicks off.

Valentine Pension 1-83. The fryer heats the oil and then the switch on electric board trips? Please help

Hi there!
Check the rating of the electrical circuit breaker where the unit is tapped, it must be at least 25 % higher than the unit' s current rating on nameplate to avoid tripping.
If hi-limit of the unit trips after reaching temperature setting, try lowering the set point; hi-limits are designed to trip off at 450F for safety. Or it may be faulty causing premature or early trip off temperature.

Hello, my Breville deep fryer has suddenly powered off because I moved it. What is the matter, please?

Some deep fryers have a magnetic quick release on the power cord. First, check to see if the power cord is securely fastened at the wall and at the base of the fryer.
Safety features of deep fryers include auto shut-off when oil overflows or reaches a certain vertical point in the fryer, or if there is too much or not enough oil. Drain the entire fryer and slowly refill it to the maximum fill line.
Some outlets, especially in bathroom and kitchen areas, have GFI (Ground Fault Interrupt) circuits which detect overload or short situations and shut off. You can see an example here. Ensure the "reset" button is pressed down. Another cause could be a tripped circuit breaker. Check the circuit breakers to ensure all of them are in the "on" position.

Hi I have got a cecilware deep fat fryer

Sounds like you need a gas regulator in the main line.

Either that or you are using a natural gas fryer on propane which is a no-no if not converted properly.

Presto dual fryer wont heat up, keeps cuting off. model # 05450

The Presto 05450 cannot be repaired. Normally it works or stops. Is it cutting off by over loading the house circuit ? It is 1,500 watts, which is a large load for some circuits.

Fuse keeps tripping

The first thing to do would be to get an electrician to your home to check that the problem is not with your supply. If you ask nicely then the same guy could probably check your fryer for short circuits - the most likely culprit if the problem is intermittent is the plug on the power cord, the cable and the connection inside the fryer where the cord goes in - check that all these are ok. The other possible cause could be a faulty element, however this is unlikely to be an intermittent fault, and it would usually get worse quickly to the point of not working at all. Hope this helps - please post again if not :)
