Question about Big Boss Oil-Less Fryer 8605
The bulb will have to be changed. You can call customer service but I can tell you, they aren't helpful at all. On top of several nutty loopholes you are made to jump through, it's going to cost you to ship it back and forth. What I did was fix mine on my own. The only place I could find a bulb was ebay. Go to ebay and type in "halogen oven heating bulb" and it will come up. I paid $15.99 and got free shipping. It is the same bulb that fits a Flavor Wave. Once you receive it, be very careful. It is delicate and should not be touched with your hands as this will shorten the life of the bulb drastically. Wear latex gloves! Opening the unit up is a little tricky. There is one small screw that holds the cover in place. Once it is removed, you will see three more screws that hold the bulb mounts in place. Remove these and lift the bulb up. There will be three holes big enough for a screwdriver. If you look down in the holes, you will see three more screws. These hold the top cover to the unit. Remove these screws and carefully separate the top cover from the unit. There are wires holding them together so don't pull too hard as most of these wires need to stay in place. Follow each end of the wires from the bulb to a wire nut. Each end is connected to a cluster of wires. Keep up with the wires that connect to the ends. The bulb with the unit has a red and blue wire. The new one will have two black wires but don't worry. It doesn't matter which side connects to which wire set as long as you don't get the wires inside the unit crossed, so keep up with which wires inside the unit need to stay together. Once you feed the wires through, connect them with the wire nuts and then its just a matter of putting it all back together. On a side note, I recommend using a magnetic screwdriver, and remember to limit contact with the new bulb. Don't touch with your bare hands if you can help it. Also, the wire nuts are slightly crimped so you will need a set of pliers to remove. It sounds complicated but it really isn't bad once you get going. I enjoy cooking with this appliance enough to make it worth it. Good luck and I hope this helps.
