Autofry Having a problem with the oil boiling over. It worked fine yesterday, but today it just boiled over very badly and oil looks very filmy on top when boiling. Does oil break down at some point when it shouldn't be used in the fryer? Thanks!

SOURCE: Boiling oil seeping from tefal deep fat fryer

Had simular prolem with Bush fryer. When frying the moisture from frozen or fresh products cause the fat/oil to foam there is usually a low point where the element is fitted and it is at this point that the hot oil escapes all over your work top.
Try to make sure that fresh stuff is dry as possible and frozen stuff has little ice with it.
Ensure that the oil is not above the level marker.
Hope that is of help. I spend days looking for a leak that didn't exsist

SOURCE: boiling grease

When the issue starts have you actually checked the grease temperature? You can also checkto see if there is excessive grease build up on the themostat.Sometimes uncooked food particles can cause a boiling type motion in the fryer while they cook. be sure to do regular filterings of the grease,this will cut down on the suspended particles.If the grease temp is above 350, shut power off and check continuity on the thermostat,it could be sticking closed,in which case it will need to be replaced

SOURCE: Fryer not turning off and overheating oil.

That can happen either because of a faulty thermostat, a faulty electronic control, or because of a contact in thermostat wiring. A defective gas valve would be quite unusual.

SOURCE: Autofry Mti-5 - no error

Hi there, It sounds as if you tripped the High Limit switch on the heating element. To fix this, remove the heating element from the Autofry. On the bottom of the heating element box there is a red switch. Push the red button in and that should reset the elements. Re-install the elements and turn your Autofry on. If you have any further questions, please contact the Autofry Tech Support line @ 1-800-348-2976 x.112.

SOURCE: how to clean heating element that is coated with

Hi Nancy,
You can use water to boil out the fryer, just be sure that the unit is dry completely before you use it again. Water and oil mixed will cause a boilover. If you go to a restaurant supply shop, you can get a fryer detergent which will help dispel any grease buildup on the burner and the sides as well. Boil the unit for 15 to 20 minutes with the detergent, then rinse and dry thoroughly before next use.
Hope this helps, Please rate and comment, Thank You

My 1996 Nissan bluebird had all the cool system replaced but is still boils the temp says its cold i need help to find out why it boils over

Looks like you have a leaking head gasket or cracked head. You can buy a head gasket leak detector kit that will let you know if there is CO2 gas escaping through the radiator. I think that it is this gas leak that makes it look like your radiator is boiling.

Explain why there is spluttering sound when water is sprinkled on hot oil

Hello. When water is sprinkled on hot oil will sputter because the oil is at a temperature near or over 100 degrees C or 212 degrees F. This is the temperature where water boils. The sputtering that you hear is the water being boiled and creating steam. When the water boils and becomes steam, it expands extremely fast. This creates a "bubble" in the oil and the bubble "popping" makes the sputtering sound.

Boiling coolant hyundai santa fe

emma, how is the coolant level? Have you had to add any? Check the cooling fan(s) to make sure they are kicking on when the engine temperature rises. If they are not going on, check for a bad cooling fan switch.

Renault laguna 2.2 disel overheating it has had a new head gasket new themostat new turbo new intercooler worked fine for a month then the same problem has occured

Alot of the times when cars over heat its as simple as a radiator cap the valves in the cap go bad and it alows the coolant to boil at a lower temp then it should. With a cap thats working it will increase the boiling point of the coolant to keep the engine cool. Its the most looked over part when it comes to an over heating problem

I have a 95 grand cherokee. i just parked the car and realized that there was water and oil leaking rapidly from it. The temperature increased to 120. Also, i opened the engine oil cap and saw the oil...

If the engine oil appeared to be boiling, it has either water (coolant) mixed with it or the temperature was far higher than 120 regardless of whether it was Fahrenheit or Celsius; oil does not boil at 120 degrees of either one of those.
> opened the engine oil cap
You didn't specify which engine you have but can we assume it is the inline 6? Then the 'oil cap' would be atop the valve cover? This is definitely no place to find anything boiling.
You may have had a catastrophic failure of a head gasket. It would have to be an unusual failure to allow both oil and water to be lost since the head gasket doesn't normally fail that quickly in several places necessary to lose both coolant and oil.
There may be another explanation but it would be tough to determine without having the vehicle present.

Blowing oil and smoke out of valve cover. radiato is boiling over

There are several things that can be causing the problems. Blowing smoke and oil out of the valve cover is usually a sign that the engine rings are worn out and/or the PVC valve is not working correctly to remove the gases from the engine case. The radiator boiling over can be from several causes. A bad radiator cap can cause the engine to boil over. Lack of antifreeze can also do the same thing since the later model smog engines run at a higher temperature and use higher pressure radiator caps. A cracked head can also cause the radiator and engine to overheat. This can be checked at a local parts store with a radiator checker that will show if there is exaust gases in the radiator when the engine is running. Worse case senerio is you blew a head gasket out and your oil will look like bubbly milky creamy in color from the water that has gotten into and mixed with the oil from the engine. You are going to have to do some trouble shooting on this one to find the answers. Good Luck, RAC

Coolant boiled over in resivare.

This sounds like a major problem. If you over heated the motor and the oil is milky you probably blew a head gasket or warped the heads.
